Orange Juice Get Ready To Start Again

By: Maura / October 27, 2008


Please enjoy this clip of the fine Scottish pop outfit Orange Juice playing “Rip It Up” in honor of their impending reunion, which will take place when the band–and lead singer Edwyn Collins, who suffered a brain hemorrhage in 2005–is honored by the UK music-therapy outfit Nordoff-Robbins in Scotland next month. The whole idea of Collins even playing music again seemed like a very distant possibility three years ago, and this is kind of an amazing coda to his recovery. Also, Collins’ piece for The Guardian about his therapy, and how it was aided by drawing birds, caused a bit of a tear to form in my eye. [undercover.com.au / Guardian / YouTube; HT Eddy]
