they may think they are investing in a bargain as Edwyn Collins is in a bad way at the moment. he had a brain seizure last week. sad news I used to really like Orange Juice in my school days.

The Orange Juice singles sell for a fair bit these days I think, liked some of his early stuff, 'A Girl Like You' I can't hear without thinking of my dad saying that the noise in the backing sounded like someone sawing something.... :thumbsup:

Hadn't seen the sleeve before, was the track supposed to be northern-sounding?

The follow up (keeps burning) was a tribute to the Northern Scene if I remember right

Yep, the video has two lads dancing northern on a big nightowl symbol i think. Hope Edwyn gets well, he's one of us.

I thought this singer was a regular attendee at Wigan? Just like Marc Almond.

Got to admit I could not believe anyone could cover a couple of nothern classics and get them high in the pop charts no matter how bad a version it was.

Even Tony Blackburn tried. Also heard a version of Bring him back - Sissy Houston - I think by Dusty Springield on an old 60s TV footage.

Hey this music can be inspiring.

Edwin was a regular at Wigan all the Scottish lads know him , I once pulled in to the car park and Steve Strange was in the next car with his mates all done up in make up --did me bloody head in !!

Also check out Orange Juice 45s you can hear the Northern all over them

Speedy recovery to Edwin as well
