buried treasure


the things you find on old tapes ...

from a richard skinner session on the bbc 1985 sometime

paul quinn and edwyn collins - i like it like that (okay so i'm stupid - it's called different drum)

paul quinn and edwyn collins - it had to happen

paul quinn and edwyn collins - louise louise

oh and i forgot to add this to the long lost postcard brochure thing from ages ago. page 12. sorry.



ps - if you're late over here don't forget the orange juice sessions that are around here somewhere way back

Lovely stuff. I remember this being on funnily enough...strange the things that stick in your head...

I could do with picking up one of the usb tape decks. I have so much stuff on cassettes. I don't have any of my old vinyl anymore but I've several boxes in the cupboard filled to the brim with cassettes.....

(plans next purchase...)

And what's more, we all finally get a glimpse into Dearest Ally's sitting room! Lovely carpet...

Wow! An amazing find..

According to The "In Session Tonight" bible this was catually recorded in August 1984 and there were 4 tracks - you're missing a version of "Ain't That Always The Way".

By the way "I Like It Like That" is actually a cover of Mike Nesmith's "Different Drum" - later popularised by The Lemonheads

Oh and teh line-up for the session featured a pre-Smiths Craig Gannon! (others were Chris Bell on Drums and Paul Heard on bass)

Fact check OVER!

Aint That Always The Way was recorded by both Paul & Edwyn.

Paul's version was a single, while Edwyn on the b-side of his 12" release of '50 Shades Of Blue'

I'll post both of them at TVV come Friday....
