Heh...I have the 12" single of their version of Jolene...

Can't wait for Orange Juice.

Speaking of: I think I heard Orange Juice on a car commercial the other day...

Stephen, do you like their version? I think it's good. Another great Scottish band: White Dove also did a cover of 'Jolene'. Great song, and i think both covers are good. White Dove's one kind of pre-dated that Bristol sound as I remember.

I had a scout around before posting this, I think there is an image of a very young Edwyn Collins with Strawberry Switchblade.

Excellent choice of image - they look just that little bit different in this one than most of the piccies I've seen before, almost slyly respectable, which I'm sure wasn't intended. ;-) Not much airplay over this-a-way, but they rocked - I heard they were great to see live. Very Cool post.

Rob, the image is from a 1986 tour of Japan.
