Grace's book, in today's Telegraph magazine

Falling and Laughing, Grace's book, there are extracts in today's Telegraph Magazine. Oh how exciting! Here's my review of the book. Not bad for a beginner.
No, I must admit, I'm proud of her, it's a jolly good read. Seb found it hard to read, about my hospital experience and all that, but it's funny too. I've had a funny life.
Cheerio,
Edwyn

Hello Sarah, sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you, it's a bit mental round here at the moment! I'm so glad to here the positive sound of your letter. It's really early days for Tim and it sounds like he and you are determined to press on. Life doesn't end with this shitty event, even though at the beginning it's hard to see a way through. Clinging to the ledge, isn't it? Feel free to write me anytime, there are always bad days, I know. Strength and love to you both, Grace xx

Grace, I just read your wonderful book in two days flat! My husband Tim had a stroke in June 2007 and Edwyn your stroke is the most similar effects to Tim's that we have come across. Reading this book was like looking in a mirror, and you are both a total inspiration to us since we watched your documentary made by BBC Scotland. I can't wait for Tim to read the book, and I have so many ideas for extra speech therapies I could do with Tim now. And pilates, what a great idea! Thank you for a brilliant and moving read! Keep going! What a great site too, I'm so glad to find it. x

See you there! No idea what we're expected to do, but looking forward to it. Radcliffe and Maconie are going to talk to us immediately beforehand on Radio 2.

Shipping to the US was GBP 6.95, which isn't a bargain, but I've seen worse. I don't really care, to be honest! I must have this book. As you well know your husband's progress (and yours) has been followed closely by a lot of people around the world who love him and his music. I remember the day I heard -- heart straight into throat, and followed the site obsessively for many months. Orange Juice meant a lot to me, you see; enough that I have a tattoo of the postcard kitty: http://www.flickr.com/photos/fnarf/362300915/

Was it hideously expensive Fnarf? Much appreciated. Let me know what you think.

Just ordered my copy -- first in the US? Probably not. Can't wait to read it.

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…
