Edwyn Collins on Daytrotter

And in case you missed it, Daytrotter hosted a session with Edwyn Collins last week. It's not only worth downloading, what with his live acoustic versions of Orange Juice's "Falling and Laughing" and 1994's "A Girl Like You," actually quite good done this way, without the spacey, pseudo-David Bowie quality of the original, but Daytrotter's posted a write-up on him that's really fucking heartbreaking. Their description of his appearance, after a double cerebral hemorrhage that took place six years ago and unfortunately shows in his slurring voice, and in his lyrics for "Losing Sleep," is rather crushing. But they give him the credit he's worth, and in return he gives them a great session. Go snag it!
