Here's the next Des Was A Bowie Fan in Camden's Chalk Farm - indiepop, new wave, post-punk and Northern Soul till 2am on Edwyn Collins' birthday weekend. Dancing, drinking, screwing, falling and laughing amidst the Pop artefacts and vinyl at Ye Olde Fiddler's Elbow, a heroic pub venue on the corner of sleepy Malden Road.
Edwyn's band Orange Juice grew hits on trees, crafting a post-punk sound brimming with soul and joy that stretched over four LPs and a multitude of singles in the early-to-mid eighties. But of course he hit the chart heights after this with the simmering 'A Girl Like You' reaching the Top Ten and the Pop stars, making him a legend in a million more hearts. His 59th birthday is as good an excuse as any to drink up and celebrate this.
Expect pearling dancefloor shots from 1982's 'You Can't Hide Your Love Forever' to '84's 'The Orange Juice', through his solo nuggets and stuff around the edges, like his and Mark E. Smith's minor disco classic 'Seventies Night', in amongst the usual mix.
