I am wondering if there is anyone out there with live gig recordings of Orange Juice / Edwyn Collins?
and dare I say it on this site, Josef K ones as well.
Hope to hear soon

Here's a few pics I took on Friday of some deer in Forssinard, Sutherland, a few miles from Helmsdale. Also a pic of the nearby mountains. Enjoy x…

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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!

The town of Helmsdale is situated in the county of Sutherland. It's a pretty tourist town and I particularly like the harbour. The locals are friendly which is what you would expect for any northern Scottish town, and the local pubs are also what you would expect (not surprisingly the gaffer of one pub we frequented knew the owners of our local in Groats which is more than 60 miles away!!).
Anyway, off with my tourist board head (although I would… Continue

Hi Edwyn, Grace and all who were there on tuesday night! Just to say thanks for a fantastic gig.
We had been looking forward to seeing you for so long and as ever you didn't disappoint.
Great venue, great, great tunes and great to meet you after as well. It was an absolute honour and thrill.
Photos and signings will be treasured.
Don't forget to come back to Cork someday soon. Drinks are on us.
Seán and Christine.

This is my first post as I only joined this morning, so hello to everyone and I'm really happy to be part of an online community that appreciates the work (and sheer grit) of Edwyn Collins.
This is also my first blog ever, so excuse me if I overstretch myself and end up talking bollox. It's a weird thing to do, expecting someone else to be remotely interested in your life. It's like doing a video journal/diary and having to talk into a camera. It can be awkward. I tried it earlier in… Continue

Can't wait to see Edwyn again. Saw the Leeds gig last year. Very emotional and brilliant.

Hi Edwyn and Grace,
Thanks for a sublime gig in Kirkwall - the encore of 'Expecations' made my night!
All the best for the rest of the tour, and haste ye back again!

I am loving Falling and LAughing. Its very well written. Grace Maxwell you've got great style and I like the points that you made-especially as I hope to train as a speech therapist.There is a real searing honesty and strength to your account. I'm glad you wrote it. I think its great. I'm going to be at Deaf Institute Oct 27th, and if it is not annoying for you, will hope to ask you to sigh it. Hope that is ok. All good wishes from Robin Brunskill (voice artist) www.robinbrunskill.com PS We met… Continue
