Blue Orchids + Support on Saturday 16th November 2019
Blue Orchids, as a post punk psychedelic adjunct to Fall-world are well established in the music
enthusiast’s consciousness, and yes, Martin Bramah was a founding father of The Fall, and as
expressed recently might have reasonable grounds to even call himself The Fall, well, why
not…but then he’s not daft. Perhaps people could do with reconnecting with Martin’s oeuvre a
little more deeply than obsessing over the ex Fall schtick, specially what with the recent albums
being a succession of magick pop psych masterpieces choc stock (oh yes) with fabulous gems
full of rich, resonant sounds and stinging, esoteric lyrics.
Last year’s “Righteous Harmony Fist” was a total triumph, one of them stick to the turntable type
records you used to know and love in the seventies and eighties. And the accompanying live
shows were remarkable. A definite air of the ‘wow man we’re not worthy’ was rife amidst the
awestruck punters in the Dublin Castle six months ago as they shook the embers of harmonic
feedback off their clothing and made off into the night. That was a superb Blue Orchids show.
And there’s more...
‘The Magical Record Of Blue Orchids’ came out on Tiny Global Productions on 21st June 2019
on CD and vinyl formats. Bramah calls it, “the first covers concept album” the centerpiece of
which is, “a pivotal anomaly”, an unseen Mark E Smith lyric from 1977, which Bramah has only
now set to music. Nuggets from The Penny Saints, The Aardvarks, The Growlers’, Crystal Stilts
are explored and there’s an album of new Blue Orchids original material not far behind. Buy the
records, attend the gigs, appreciate the illusive magic of Blue Orchids. A very special group.
