Edwyn Collins, Do It Again

You don’t hear much about Edwyn Collins here in NZ unless you search him out.

A few months before I left the UK back in 2005, I was gutted to hear he’d had a series of strokes, and for a while it seemed touch and go as to whether he’d ever perform again. (Though I remember being encouraged by a report from his wife on a fan forum that he was ‘up and singing but had some trouble with his pitch’ – and a fan’s hilarious response that ‘it has been ever thus, dear’…)

Anyway, he’s definitely back on form. I urge you to check out more of his recent stuff at www.edwyncollins.com, and enjoy this great collaboration with the likes of the Franz’s Alex Kapranos and Nick McCarthy, the Sex Pistols’ Paul Cook and more…
