There are severe hangovers all round at Collins HQ today. Except Edwyn (light drinker) and Will (non drinker). Yesterday Edwyn was presented with an Ivor Novello award at the Grosvenor House in London. The Ivors are the best thing a songwriter can possibly achieve, an award from your peers. His was the Ivors Inspiration Award, which recognised the mark Edwyn has left on other musicians and songwriters. A thrilling and moving occasion. Edwyn made a fantastic speech and the room gave him a standing ovation.

About time too...
AKA Bridge..... hello Edwyn,Grace & Co. Hope you like the photo of me and the main man at the Buxton gig. It was such a thrill to meet you again. What an accolade you must be so proud and rightly so. Huge congrats to you all. I guess that tab means I can view it now then! Like the new site but I notice a few covers missing from the photos section. I will post images of a few vinyls that I`m sure are still up in the loft. "my beloved girl" , "Don`t shilly shally" , "50 shades of blue" are a few that come to mind and, of course the one and only, literally, "You can`t FIND your love forever. Keep winning awards and the value will keep going up! haha...Cheerio for now

Congrats, if anyone deserves such an award, it is you Mr. Collins.
That is great news Edwyn. Well deserved and completely apt.
That's fantastic news and well deserved......Congrats Edwyn :)))))
Thoroughly deserved. Congratulations, Edwyn!
Great things happen to great people.

Congratulations Edwyn!
Hi Dean
Love the photo!
I'm working on getting all the sleeve art together. Haven't started on the Ed solo stuff yet. Any old shite you have, bung it up and I can feature it on the main page. This site has lots to come and will be tarted up, but it's good fun so far!

Hi Edwyn

It was lovely to meet you and Roddy there and your speach was so moving. I met more MEN than you can imagine who told me how tearful and proud they were of you for speach. It was a pleasure to shake your finger! And as well as being an inspiration musically, it was an inspiration just to meet you.

Much love to you and all at Collins HQ

Rowena Morgan
Congratulations!!!
Thank you Rowena. I liked my speech. I worked it out. In case I came unstuck. But I made it!
Love Edwyn

Art Work and Bum Fuzz

Posted by scott owen on May 5, 2017 at 17:15 0 Comments

My Bum Fuzz unit just arrived in California along with some plectrums with Edwin art. It took me along time to order this unit, but the twenty five year gestation period for it to be built surely eclipses my lack of urgency. Best regards all...

Thank you for the music

A while back I asked Edwyn if he would let me use his music on a little film I made.  Here is the result: Mill Mechanics

Thanks for that.
