Film - 7lives - music

Ahoy! Ahoy!

I've been a fan and avid follower of Edwyn's music and band(s) for a wee while now and often wondered why i've never heard any of his wonderful music in a movie - am i right? has it never been used in a feature film?

And of course.....it maybe my imagination and of course I'm prone to exaggeration  but i think i've just made a great little feature film called '7 lives' and i would dearly love to explore the possibility of including some of his celestial toones in…

Question on birds for Dutch art magazine

Dear Edwyn Collins,


I'm a journalist working for a Dutch art magazine called Mister Motley, and i'm making an article about you and your bird drawings for our issue

that is entirely about birds. I was quite impressed by your story after

seeing your BBC documentary, and it's great to see that you performed

in Holland last november! Could I ask you some questions about drawing

and birds, by…

A small favour

Dear Edwyn, I have read a lot about your remarkable recovery and watched the documentary a few weeks ago....it was incredible to see you singing again. My neice, Ruby who is now 6, had heart attack last year and due to the oxygen supply to her brain being cut off for a prolonged period she now has quite severe brain injuries. She is currently at Tadworth rehabilitation centre going through intensive rehab. Her parents are both musical and they are pinning their hopes on music helping her to…

Just finished the book.

You cannot complete this read without imagining the pain endured and the constant worry of "plateauing". But it's only imagining. It takes a lot to move a 46 yr old fella to near tears at the descriptive Grace uses. I often read this through glazy eyes. I think it's probably the realisation of mortality that we all begin to feel around this age.



I have seen Edwyn and the band three times in the last 3 years and each time the performance of the songs is more assured and dynamic.… Continue

A letter to Edwyn and Grace

Dear Grace, dear Edwyn,



we met in Paris a few days ago when you gave us this wonderful gig.

I am Jerome.



I found you a table to sit with your good friends at a café pub nearby after the show.

My loved Delphine and I shared a few precious minutes with you as you told us the story of the drawing book.

Edwyn insisted on the "crude crude crude" motto for his early pieces.



I can't draw a straight line :-),

I have no shame to say I enjoy the crude… Continue

Leeds November 2010

It was a great night and a pleasure to hear Edwyn again in great voice. What really pleases me is my 8 year old son keeps asking me to play the CD. He said to me ;I can't wait to meet Grace and Edwyn at the Games again next year'

It made me really happy, thanks Grace and Edwyn you have made Magnus a very happy boy.

Cheers and have a relaxing time in H'dale

Preston gig

Difficult to know where to start. I never thought I would hear Blue Boy played before my ears.Somewhere in the middle of Rip It Up I had a physical shudder of joy. I never considered the notion of actually seeing Paul Cook knock hell out of a drum kit. And in the all the time I've seen and heard the band 'Morrissey' I've held fast to my belief that the Boz is the quiffiest.

Edwyn - it was a thrill

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.
