The New Book and other stuff

Hi...Hope you are well, I have just read Graces Book and it is an incredible read, both emotional and very powerful. Also went to see your Art Exibition at the CCA in Glasgow in May and was very impressed. I was at the Celtic Connections Gig at the ABC and it was great to see you back at your very best. I still remember the QM gig in 1986 and Renfew Ferry Gig in 1991 when you got your Mum up on stage and sang Rip it up for a very close family friend.

Good luck for the future Edwyn and… Continue

The best £3 you could spend!

Hi Edwyn and Grace,



I am just back from Piccadilly Waterstone's. I am very much looking forward to getting stuck into the book after the earlier reading and it was wonderful to hear you sing a mix of old and new songs! What a treat!

They say you shouldn't meet your hero's, but i dunno...!!



Wishing you lots of success with the book & looking forward to that Bloomsbury gig!

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

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

Message for Grace

Dear Grace, I read your article today in the Telegraph magazine. Whilst studying for my D.Phil I read the following paper:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8466415

I urge you to read it as it could be of significance. I can obtain the full article and email it to you as a pdf if you would like me to. If you would like me to please let me know.


with best wishes,

Linda

Grace's book, in today's Telegraph magazine

Falling and Laughing, Grace's book, there are extracts in today's Telegraph Magazine. Oh how exciting! Here's my review of the book. Not bad for a beginner.
No, I must admit, I'm proud of her, it's a jolly good read. Seb found it hard to read, about my hospital experience and all that, but it's funny too. I've had a funny life.
Cheerio,
Edwyn

Found Edwyn Collins again

I was thinking about Edwyn's music today, and decided see what news there might be of some new releases... and stumbled across this site. Glad to hear the bout with ill health has turned out well and new music is in the works.

I saw Edwyn live here in Atlanta Georgia back in 1994 and have been a fan ever since...his songs have stuck around in my mind and regularly float up to conscious awareness.

Orange Juice, Al Green and L.O.V.E

I have been gathering together an archive of messages sent to Edwyn while he was ill. There were so many and I appreciated them so much. They are all mixed up with my other email, so as I have extracted them have found some that I missed at the time. Here is one I have just stumbled upon. Startled and amazed by the things the internet throws up, I thought I would share it with you:

Perth Gig

Perth was a truly sublime gig. Edwyn was in great voice and very good humour and had excellent support from Carwyn and Andy on acoustic guitars. I've been a fan since the early days of Orange Juice, but hearing the songs played by a stripped back band really highlighted the greatness of the songs that Edwyn has written and continues to write. It really was music to stir the soul, and I have to admit to shedding a tear or two when they opened with "Falling and Laughing". The band received… Continue

tremendous euphoria

How are you friends? Do you like my new site? I'm learning it myself. I'm perking up today after my day at the Ivors. I experienced tremendous euphoria. I won! What do you think about that? I'm playing an acoustic gig in Perth tomorrow night. I'll send a report and some film of it. I'm experimenting with my site.
Cheerio for now
Love Edwyn

How much of loyalty is an asset?

Posted by Alex jackman on December 12, 2019 at 6:57 0 Comments

We live in a world where equations among people continue to change drastically.  A world where in, history itself keeps on changing, maintaining a loyal relationship with people in professional or personal sphere is a matter of great choice and daring. So, the question that arises is how much of loyalty is an asset?

Gone are those days when people would sacrifice their lives for someone by virtue of the loyalty they owe to the other person. Today, all people see is the mere fact of…

Composing a book review is not equivalent to composing a book report or a synopsis. A book review is a basic examination of a published work that surveys the work's qualities and shortcomings. An unmistakable commentator can majorly affect a book's gathering. Numerous writers endeavor to have their books assessed by an expert in light…

Art Work and Bum Fuzz

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.
