Blue Orchids - The Once And Future Thing LP
Having reunited three years ago after being asked to play All Tomorrow‰۪s Parties by their fans in Deerhunter, Blue Orchids are back with their first full-band album since - believe it or not - their 1982 Rough Trade ‰ÛÏThe Greatest Hit (Money Mountain)‰. Blue Orchids began in 1980 after three former members of The Fall reunited, including founding guitarist Martin Bramah and their first keyboard player, Una Baines. A deal with Rough Trade shortly followed, resulting in two 7‰ singles, a spot on NME‰۪s C81 cassette compilation of post-punk luminaries and 12‰ EP, ‰ÛÏAgents Of Change.‰ Despite later line-ups featuring members of Primal Scream, The Smiths, James and other big names, no follow-up albums were issued in their day. Martin was asked to become lead singer of Inspiral Carpets, passed on that, rejoined The Fall for their biggest-selling album, ‰ÛÏExtricate,‰ and retired from music for a few years. American trip planned for spring of 2017.
