Jock Scot calling

Dear Edwyn I follow your recovery and exploits through the national press and am pleased to hear you are back on the road again with projected gigs in Embra. Hot new band in Edinburgh is "the Bum Clocks" (the Scottish beatles) featuring Tam Dean Burns and Russell on drums and Malcom Ross and I trust you have already lined them up as your support act. Of course I am busy on the domestic front as Iris (18 months) is now a toddler. Delighted Grace has finished her account of your illness and… Continue

Falling and Laughing at Latitude

hi, I'm the woman who went off on one about my mum and her head injury, thank you so much for the book, i'm really enjoying it. Would love to send you my mum's book, can I get an address to send it too. Also, as a poet I have found writing about my mums condition one of the best ways to deal with it and celebrate her as a person and how she inspires others by being such a positive loving person despite all the difficulties she faces. Heres two poems I have written about her, hope you enjoy and… Continue

Title: Edwyn and Grace do litrachur at Latitude dontcha know...

http://www.uncut.co.uk/blog/index.php?blog=11&p=1256&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1



This was rather fun. A first for us both. Grace was quite scared, but we pulled it off. A lovely crowd in the literature tent, just before the thunder storm began. We got a tremendous soaking trying to get back to the car. I'm not keen on camping, you see! We stayed in Lavenham, an hour away, in a charming B&B, as we… Continue

Hello Edwyn

Not being sure where to post this 'Comment' I am posting it everywhere. I have to admit how this stuff all works, and fits together, flummoxes me sometimes. I just have to grin and post it, and hope for the best.

Anyway, my comment to you went like this:

"Every time I play "The Glasgow School" I remember sitting on a park bench in Islay reading the news of your illness. It was a shocking moment, but I am glad to see that you are getting on with it all, and Moving On Up.

I am… Continue

My weekend

Back home in Kilburn after a tremendous weekend. T in the Park was crazy. I loved it. Alex and Nick from Franz Ferdinand joined Malcolm and I, we did Sorry for Laughing, the Josef K song, which Malcolm wrote. It was for BBC 3, you can still see it on the i Player. I met so many people, did sessions, interviews. The show was wonderful for me, a great crowd who gave us such a reception. Singing along, all that. Love to the Maccabees, they were telling me that they were listening to Orange Juice… Continue

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



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
