Edwyn Collins archive A legend in modern British pop Edwyn Collins is a songwriter whose talent remains a touchstone for the likes of current hit-makers Franz Ferdinand. Twenty years on, Collins' last album Doctor Syntax still neatly bridges the aftermath of punk. "With Orange Juice, we were smart enough to know that we weren't' going to get anywhere as a provincial punk-rock group, " he says of the early days. " We used to play to Glaswegian Sham 69 fans and finish the gigs covered in gob. They saw us with our floppy fringes and effete mannerisms and went mental...we already had an idea of the kind of music we wanted to do, but punk showed us a way to do it" Back with a new band, new material and new riffs, this will be another ICA gig to remember.
