Falling and Laughing
Anyone see Edwyn Collins on the BBC News this morning with his wife Grace? It was a quite the pleasant surprise of a Thursday morning. From what i gathered a softback version of Falling and Laughing, the book Grace wrote about dealing with the aftermath of her husband's two brain hemorrhages, has just been put out. I highly recommend a read of it.
Just found this video from his gig at the Black Box in Belfast in January playing Falling and Laughing, complete with false start. What a night!
And while we're all collectively swooning over a young Edwyn and early Orange Juice,here's a download of our version of Consolation Prize that we recorded really quickly one afternoon last June on my 4track. The guitar sounds so good. I forgot all about this. I think we might have played it live only twice last summer. Who knows, maybe it could get an outing again in the near future...
