.... I bought the "Poor Boy" single that just came out then. It must have been the only one in Switzerland. I liked it a lot so from then on I bought all the Orange Juice singles and LPs (the happy dolphin is still my favourite cover - I put it in a frame).
Then - I think it was in 1987 - you, Edwyn, finally made it to Switzerland for a concert in Schaffhausen. You probably won't remember it as the venue was small (the Domino) and there were not more than 30 people there. But I loved it. And in the break I had a drink with you at the bar and I asked you to play "The coffeetable song" which at that time was my favourite song. But you said sorry, not possible as it is based on a drum computer. And after the concert you invited me and my wife to a drink at the hotel Bahnhof which was very nice of course but I refused because it was late and I had to get up extremely early. Up to this day I still hate myself for that... mainly because I fear that you won't play in Switzerland ever again (I hope I'm wrong....)
And I kept on buying all your music and I still listen to it a lot. Being an english teacher I even translated one of the songs with my students ("It's right in front of you" - I love it!).
And now I just read Grace's book and was very touched by it.
Whatever your output will be I will follow you. I hope there will be still a lot.
So I just like to say thank you for all.
Lots of love
