The NME reported yesterday that Domino Recordings are set to release an Orange Juice 7 disc boxset on the 8th of November, possibly due to overwhelming public demand after The Joint played the title track of Edwyn Collins’ new CD “Losing Sleep” last Saturday. Possibly.
Entitled “Coals To Newcastle”, the release will comprise their entire discography plus video footage.
I’m particularly looking forward to the latter because it will include the official promo for “What Presence?!” – which I reckon to be the best Orange Juice single and a piece of video I’ve never seen. Derek Jarman directed to boot.
Sure, you can stream it online at Muzu.tv or vh1la.com or some other off -the-beaten-track video site but NOT if you live in New Zealand. We have to put up with some dodgy VHS footage of an Old Grey Whistle Test appearance or one of those motionless YouTube tributes…
