Rip it Up


To my eternal shame I have nothing by  jingly jangly legends Orange Juice on either vinyl or CD. Plenty of downloads but nothing physical. You never see anything by them in charity shops!

I have a few Edwyn Collins albums on CD , two vinyl albums by Zeke Manyika and I am awaiting the album Happy Ending  by HiFi Sean & David McAlmont from LNFG. The only thing I have featuring Malcolm Ross is Sorry For Laughing by Josef K on the Big Gold Dreams compilation. But nothing by the band.

Fortunately Mrs CC has come to my rescue with the 12 inch single of Rip it Up from 1983 on the Polydor label. A bit crackly in places but that is no bad thing

I should probably rectify my current situation.

  1. Respect, Mrs. CC! - Brian

  2. I appear to have got my McClymonts and McAlmonts mixed up!Apologies to all concerned

  3. Mrs. CC has saved the day! Any day with Orange Juice music in it is a good day.

    As for the unintentional McAlmont reference, I am very grateful for the reminder as you will know.

    In the interest of restoring the karmic balance, Mr. McClymont released a retrospective collection called Centuries in June on Past Night From Glasgow, which looks rather wonderful.
