Thoroughly enjoyable show, packed to RFH rafters with old and new gems, corking atmosphere. 

Wish we could have danced, but everyone on their feet at the end, and lots of great 'Glaswegian' whistling of approval.

Thirty years of musical pleasure made a damp Thursday evening feel warm and toasty.

The band, as ever, gave their all, and Edwyn's stage (What) presence phenomenal. Roll on the next one.

Sounds like a great night, looking forward to the Glasgow show.
That will be spectacular. Home turf gigs always are, and this one will not disappoint. Enjoy yersel'.
Seen Edwyn about 15 times in concert , first time in Brighton probably 1989, and he just keeps
geting better. Apart from the frustration of having to sit down most of the time the concert was

Thought the song selection was spot on, great mix of stuff through the years, and the whole band had
a blinder including the guests. Special highlights were a rocking " Don't shilly shally " and an awesome
strung out version of " Blue Boy ".

I'm now going to see if I can get to one of the other venues from deepest Surrey.

Thanks Edwyn.
I agree, last night was wonderful. Brilliant atmosphere and the show was brilliant with knobs on, times a million. xxx
Yes, it was a fantastic night and what a great atmosphere - everyone up on their feet for the final twenty minutes or so. Band were fabulous as ever - loved Alex and Ryan's guest appearances too - thanks Edwyn x

Loved it so much I've decided a trip home to Yorkshire for a long weekend at the beginning of November might be a good idea ... tickets for Brudenell Social Club in Leeds booked for me and my sis!
brilliant gig, Edwyn's voice so strong, Paul's drumming so tight.
But we were right up the back and getting fed up that everyone was sitting down so got up for a wee dance and then stormed down the front to try to get everyone up dancing. We got told off by the bouncers but everyone on their feet in the end for Blue Boy......................fantastic

But why have rock gigs in a sit down only venue?

Back in The Empire next time i hope
I saw you! I admired your chutzpah and couldn't figure out why you weren't allowed to dance, you looked entirely harmless to me. It's the nanny state I tell ya
I know I know, it's such a lovely place and everyone was so warm.....Edwyn was wrung out with emotion and the band reckon it was one the best EVER. Thanks to such a brilliant London audience giving it your all in spite of the seated thing. But you get such a nice sound in there and everyone can at least SEE him and the band, which I normally can't being a bit of a short-ass.

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.

Shareefa Energy Reasoning With Self - Review

Shareefa Energy – ‘Reasoning With Self’ - Review

A few months ago the BBC offered a profile of new emerging female poets, ‘Women Who Spit’. Watching the short films by Jemima Foxtrot, Cecilia Knapp and Deanna Rodger, I noted with great relief that the art of poetry is alive and well. I have always been fascinated by the medium. The ability to express intricate thoughts and feelings in a few lines of words. It is the most empowering process. And empowerment through self-expression… Continue

Dear Edwyn,

Can I just thank you for your contribution to my life. From that very first shiver I got listening to Felicity on the John Peel Show to the smile I still express today when you burst into laughter half way through Consolation Prize, it's important I let you know how much your music means to me before one of us croaks it.

I was hooked instantly and bought all the singles and albums, the ten inches, 12 inches and even ripped the flexi discs off Smash Hits and Melody…
