I´m really glad that Edwyn is back...and released such a great new album ! Especially because I share a similar fate. I was --and still am- working for radio station Bremen Vier and played Edwyn´s music since the very first days on Postcard. I was glad to present his solo concert at the "Breminale"-festival over here many years ago and did a very memorable interview with him....
About 5 years ago I suffered a stroke myself and had a very hard time and still have to cope with the… Continue

Just got tickets for the show at Birmingham Glee Club, Nov 15th. That'll be a year since I went to the Bloomsbury Ballroom gig, if it's anything like that one it'll be worth the wait. Looking forward to hearing the new album too. Good times!

...besides that I'm looking forward to Edwyn's new album! I love the title song, it just became my official summer hit 2010 :)
Oh, and I found some old photos
from the tour 1995 in Germany, which is still one of the best tours I ever followed. And that's not just because I had the chance to take a look behind the curtain:… Continue

Hey Grace and Edwyn,
Ignacio Julia here, from Ruta66 magazine in Barcelona, trying to reconnect with you.
I'm reading Falling and Laughing just now and enjoying an advance copy of Losing Sleep.
Do you need my e-mail to answer or you already have it as I've registered?
Looking forward hearing back from you!

To: Grace Maxwell & Edwyn Collins.
We are REALLY grateful to you both for your book – Falling & Laughing. Almost exactly a year ago my wife Jean fell down the stairs in our home on the left side of her head in March 2009. She suffered a fractured skull and a critical brain injury. A month ago she had a large titanium plate inserted. Why is there such an amazing improvement? Perhaps it is the more normal shape to her head; perhaps it is the greatly improved protection for her brain;… Continue

Hope this is OK. Last year Mark Bradley and myself had our biography of Martin Stephenson (he of The Daintees) published - The Song Of The Soul. Plenty of references to Edwyn and Postcard Records in there. Available from the link below. Hope you enjoy it.

What a joy to read .A positive life affirming blast of a book .I would like to say i read it at one sitting but I can't as I as crying that much I had to put it down.This book helps fill in the missing weeks for me as I had a brain haemorrhage and have 3/4 weeks i can't account for. My wife says i should be grateful,that my only memory is 'I'm not going to die'. Anyway Grace this is the book that many of us wished we'd written about the experience but didn't have the talent or determination,so… Continue

Jeff and Robin from Heavenly are behind this beautiful thing full of writing on rivers, fishing, birds, music, anything. A real labour of love. Edwyn is working on their next themed playlist, but here is birdsong 5.

Also great to hear how you got through it..!
Anyway I do laughter yoga sessions! Have done some jobs for Aphasia.....not jokes but group laughter exercises! This can… Continue

I visited my local library yesterday to return some books and Grace's book caught my eye as I was walking out.
I'm one of the people Grace describes in the book, someone who loved Edwyn's music but I wasn't a dedicated follower. I have often wondered why I hadn't heard any other records by Edwyn after the fantastic single 'Girl Like You' over the airwaves.
I'm halfway through the book today, much to the annoyance of my family as there is a mountain of housework… Continue

My husband Neil had a very severe stroke 1 year ago and he has been left with similar difficulties to Edwyn.I,Kathryn his wife,have nearly finished the book Grace wrote and can identify with so much she has written and I am now about to read it to Neil.We have both watched the documentary and have got a great deal of encouragement from it.Neil loved playing his many guitars with a group of amateur friends and has just been made an amazing one handed guitar by a great friend who makes… Continue

I wondered who best to speak to to have you come play our festival. we would be honoured to have you, and would really love to have you play. Do you have a booking agent?
We are the Chorlton Arts Festival in Manchester and looking for a headline act, and we want it to be you.
Saw you a couple of years back at the Deaf Institute in Manchester you were awesome.
