A Night To Remember

I know it has been said by m*** of you already, but the gig at the Bloomsbury Ballroom on Saturday was very special. A night that my partner Josephine and I will never forget.

A Great venue & two great support bands in The Low Miffs with the wonderful Malcolm Ross and the delighful sounds of Colorama got the night of to a great start. I have seen Edwyn peform a couple times now since his comeback & for me this was his finest hour, truly in fine voice . A great set featuring m***… Continue

Bloomsbury - what a venue, what a night!

After most gigs I guess we all come out saying it's the best one we've ever been to. This time it really was right up there with the very best of them. The whole atmosphere, quality on stage and fantastic venue made this a night never to be forgotten. Topped off with the pleasure of a chat with Will after confusing the poor lad over the t-shirt I was buying (a bargain at a tenner!), and Grace ever present........I've not experienced anything quite like it before. Thanks to all for a brilliant,… Continue

Thanks for last night Edwyn

The night started in good fashion with Malcolm Ross's band and then got better with Colorama. What a great band and the lead singer then turns to playing bass for Edwyn.

Edwyn and the band were excellent last night, even better than Leeds last year. The trip was made worthwhile even just for hearing Home Again. Even showing great humour when forgetting the band names for a while. Top man.

Fantastic evening Edwyn, thank you.

Bloomsbury Ballroom 7/11/09

I had an amazing time last night! It was a nightmare travelling down from Norwich, rail replacement services were the order of the day. However, it was all worth it when I got down to Holborn! I met some interesting people, all excited about seeing Edwyn live, many had seen Orange Juice back in the early 1980s or had seen Edwyn live before on many occasions. For me though, this was the first time I had ever had the chance to see the man perform.

The support bands both put on really good… Continue

Blooming marvellous

I finally saw Edwyn for the first time last night after loving his music for nearly 30 years. It was sensational and emotional. I loved every minute and did not want it to end. Thanks to all who were there for helping to make it so, but most of all thank you Edwyn.

Blooming in Bloomsbury

Just back from the Bloomsbury gig and what a great gig it was! Edwyn was on sparkling form and Colorama were brilliant in support! My view was obscured slightly by two rather tall young ladies, but i can't complain too much... as obscured views go, this one wasn't half bad! ;O) And what a lovely venue to boot! All in all, a great night!

Watch this....

This incredible woman describes so eloquently her experience of a brain haemorrhage. Edwyn has often amazed me with his halting but very moving descriptions of how he felt in the aftermath of his stroke. It intrigues me. Dr Bolte Taylor takes you with her.

Review from The Highland News, ah, bless 'em...

Audience loved Edwyn Collins

Published: 22 October, 2009

GLASGOW band The 1990s set the tone with enough chutzpah from Jackie McKeown to own up halfway through You're Supposed To Be My Friend: "I'm just going to tune. It'll be better for you, it'll be better for me!".





And stopping the song dead to do it, the band balanced it against a restart that tripped you straight back into the pleasure.

With echoes of Devo – and even glam rock soaking up through The Box, it… 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
