Bernard & Edwyn  : Message For Jojo

Not the kind of coupling you imagine provoking Woolworths

to clear its new releases racks,

is it? Edwyn Collins, the man

with a Cliff Richard-esque claim

to have been a has-been in three separate decades, and Bernard Butler, a man tunnelling so deep into the dumper that he's on

the verge of meeting Craig McLachlan & Check 1-2 at the centre of the pop earth. On one record. Together. It's the collaboration they said/didn't

care would ever happen!





But here's the crazy part: it's absolutely fantastic; delicate, charismatic and sharp with a

B-side that sounds like a Frankie Goes To Hollywood reunion.
