Graham Coxon turns up to Edwyn Collins acoustic gig

Former Orange Juice man attracts celebrity crowd

Edwyn Collins played an intimate acoustic gig last night (June 9) at The Social in London, raising awareness for the Connect charity.

The venue is currently housing an exhibition of artwork for Collins‘ forthcoming single, ‘Home Again’, released on seven-inch vinyl on June 23.

The artwork was created by non-celebrities and stars including Graham Coxon, Harry Hill and Jarvis Cocker. Coxon turned up to the event and mingled with fans before the show.

Taking the stage at 8pm (BST), Collins played a six-song set including the aforementioned single, plus his 1995 smash hit ‘A Girl Like You’.

The set was preceded by a short speech from a spokesperson from Connect about the charity and aphasia – the condition the former Orange Juice musician suffers from.

Colins‘ set was warmly received, with fans cheering and whooping between songs and singing along to the final song.

Edwyn Collins played:

‘Falling And Laughing’

‘What Presence?’

‘Searching For The Truth’

‘Home Again’

‘One Track Mind’

‘A Girl Like You’
