Losing Sleep

Another recent Stranraer purchase.
From 2010 on Heavenly, Losing Sleep is Edwyn Collins' 7th solo album.
An impressive list of participants on the record including Paul Cook (on drums on the title track), Johnny Marr, Roddy Frame, Alex Kapranos and Ryan Jarman from The Cribs who features on today's second offering.

Just as impressive as the music are Edwyn's excellent bird drawings which grace the front and back covers of the album.

Edwyn Collins - Losing Sleep

Edwyn Collins - I Still Believe in You


  1. Two excellent tunes, I might have to look for this album.

  2. It would be worth your while seeking it out George.

  3. He had me at the beautiful bird drawings alone...

  4. Many of you probably know this, but you will usually get one of his bird drawings with a purchase from his label, AED. I have a few on the wall of my music room.

    1. I didn't know that so thanks, Brian. Have just some time happily browsing the AED shop where I intend to treat myself to some of his art in one form or other - just need to decide now!
