Orange Juice : Irritation

Label detail from Orange Juice's 10-inch, 'Irritation' EP which came with initial vinyl copies of the 'Ostrich Churchyard' vinyl in 1992 (DUBH 922). I only have the CD version of this album so I missed out (*sigh*) on this when it was released.

Some written details on the label:

Sound recording using "new" Irritation Disc System.

An impersonational performance

1000 Limited Edition free with "Ostrich Churchyard" September, 1992

All rights reserved unauthorized copying public performance and/or if you want just steal, sample or rip it off!

...Part 23 in which the Sound of Young Scotland grow older disgracefully.

Bootleg Orange Juice Tapes : Demos, Live, & Peel Sessions

Some more fine stuff from Graeme McNay's Sound of Young Scotland artefacts. This time it's his collection of Bootleg Orange Juice tapes that include pre-release demos, live sets, and Peel Sessions. Very nicely packaged some of them are too. Wonder if he's going to upload them one day? Here's hoping!

Josef K & Orange Juice @ Plan K, 1980

In December, 1980  Josef K and Orange Juice went to Brussels at the invitation of Les Disques du Crépuscule for a New Year's Eve show at, former sugar refinery, Plan K.
Apparently 2000 people attended this show; also broadcast live on Belgian radio. I wonder if the recording still exists?

While in Brussels, Josef K recorded their excellent  'Sorry For Laughing / Révélation (TWI 023) single for Les Disques du Crépuscule.
The single was recorded at an 8-track studio in Brussels on January 2nd, 1981 and was released in March the same year.
