ROB SEZ: After the Josef K post last Friday, I thought the right thing to do would be to feature Orange Juice, fellow Scotsmen and Postcard Records label-mates to Josef K.

  1. Ta! Whilst on the Scots, check out here and, on the same blog, my posts of the Scars and The Armoury Show;


    Cheers, Dave (coincidentally) Sez.

  2. Hello, I wanted to share various Edwyn Collins live recordings in France from 1995, and my quest brought me here !
    This is basically a transfer of a tape I made over 20 years ago, featuring radio/TV appearances, a showcase in a record shop in my hometown and seven songs from a concert from the same day (recorded with a cassette walkman, but quite listenable...)
    Note : this is in 128kbps, there was no other way I could do the transfer.
    I hope someone will enjoy this !


    1. A lovely addition to this post; thank you, anonymous!
