Bernard & Edwyn : Message For Jojo

Not the kind of coupling you imagine provoking Woolworths to clear its new releases racks, is it?

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.
