D'un échantillon de marchandises

Artwork for a joint release of a sampler CD of Postcard Recordings Of Scotland by Summershine Records of Melbourne, Australia in 1993. Comes in a cardsleeve and features tracks Paul Quinn, Orange Juice, The Nectarine N°9, and Vic Godard. Wonderful artefact from the early 90s Postcard Records revival.

Orange Juice : Haçienda, Manchester

Some fine, vintage shots of Orange Juice (Malcolm Ross -left- Edwyn Collins -right top & bottom), bought on Ebay and of which copies were kindly sent to me by Scots Post-Punk. According to the eBay seller the photos were taken by David Cawley or Graham Stirling at The Hacienda, Manchester in either June 1982, or on 4 April 1983. The previous owner is not sure of the date when the pics were taken but as he was at both shows he thinks either or both of the two photographers were present at the same gigs.

The seller also has a tape of the 1983 gig which he intends to sell on eBay one of these days. Scots Post-Punk informed me that the tape hasn't showed up on eBay for the time being so keep your eyes peeled.

A Tribute to Frank Sinatra

This must have been some night; Scars, The Associates, Fire Engines, and Josef K all on one bill at Valentino's in 1980!
Must have brought a tear to old Frankie's blue eyes.
