What a belter!

Well the new album has been on constant replay and, as expected, Sir Edwyn has delivered the goods once again. Particularly loving It Dawns On Me with the Romeo fella, but there are so many stand out tunes. Cheers Edwyn and all your accomplices. See you in Birmingham on Nov 15th, cant wait.

See you in Birmingham

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!

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

Read the book, love the new song, can't wait for Bloomsbury!

Dear Edwyn and Grace,

I finished the book at last and just wanted to say what an unexpectedly uplifting experience it is. A lovely piece of writing Grace, and some great quotes from Edwyn and Will made me feel involved without intruding, if that makes sense?

The new track I'm Losing Sleep is great Edwyn, any more up your sleeve and is it part of your live set? Talking of which, I cant wait to see the show on Nov 7th at Bloomsbury Theatre. A weekend in London topped off with seeing you… Continue

A reply from GM and the world seems a much nicer place!

Grace, it was great to get a response from you, many thanks for taking the time out. I'm counting off the days until the Bloomsbury show, and happy ending is definitely the best way to describe it. My very best wishes to you, Edwyn, Will and the whole family. (You realise you have a lot to answer for, as I will now become a serial blogger!)

Who's going to the Bloomsbury Ballroom then!

I hope this makes it out there somewhere for someone to read, cos I'm not too good at this kinda thing!
I'm halfway through the book and I'm not sure 'enjoying it' is the right way to describe it, but it's a truly inspiring read.
I'm all chuffed up this weekend after getting tickets for the Bloomsbury show on 7th Nov. Can't wait, I'm sure it'll be a belter. Anyone else going?
Keep at it Edwyn, we're all with you.

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

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

Thanks

Dear Edwyn,

Can I just thank you for your contribution to my life. From that very first shiver I got listening to Felicity on the John Peel Show to the smile I still express today when you burst into laughter half way through Consolation Prize, it's important I let you know how much your music means to me before one of us croaks it.

I was hooked instantly and bought all the singles and albums, the ten inches, 12 inches and even ripped the flexi discs off Smash Hits and Melody…
