Blue Orchids
The Magical Record Of Blue Orchids

The Fall alumni the Blue Orchids have always been fond of an obscure garage classic and so set about recording an album which covers six rare rackets amongst its tracklist. Also present are covers from ore recent aficionados the Growlers and Crystal Stilts and we are promised a new song with lyrics scrawled in a notebook by Mark E Smith. Obviously during his lifetime Smith would have murdered Martin Bramah had he used them so perhaps post death Bramah is sort of safe.

Blue Orchids
Righteous Harmony Fist

Martin Bramah was an early member of The Fall, but unlike so many of those Fallen soldiers, he has continued to develop and grow the musical territory of his particular Fall period. With his band Blue Orchids, his latest release is the punchy-sounding Righteous Harmony Fist, full of rich, punkish, Manchester power. Out on Tiny Global Productions.

Blue Orchids
Skull Jam

Blue Orchids are a vintage Mancunian post-punk band (formed by Martin Bramah after he’d played on The Fall’s debut(!)) who’ve come back for more in recent years. New EP Skull Jam features a mixture of brand new songs, new versions of old songs, and a cover, and it bristles with energy and interest. 10” on Tiny Global Productions.

Blue Orchids
Bomb Manchester! / Bomb Hamburg!

Manchester post-punk mainstays Blue Orchids unearth some heavily bootlegged live recordings from Manchester, 1981 and Hamburg, 1985 for this double CD. Two very different setlists, both sought after by fans and treated in the studio by Richard Trubridge and Stuart Moxham respectively. Limited edition, 300 copies worldwide and exclusive to independent stores so you’re better off being the early bird.

Martin Bramah
The Battle Of Twisted Heel

Martin Bramah was in the original line-up of The Fall, 40 or so line-ups ago. In fact, he was the singer until King MES took the throne! Mark gets a dissing on The Battle Of Twisted Heel, Bramah’s 2006 solo record, which was deeply rare up until now. This reissue on Tiny Global Productions is arguably the first proper release of this quality material, as the first ‘release’ was less than 30 copies...

Blue Orchids
Awefull

Blue Orchids are a sort of alternate-universe vision of what The Fall could have been: they are comprised of the original line-up of the band after Mark E Smith headed off to form Fall’s mark 1, 2, 3, 4… There is certainly an early Fall vibe to Awefull, but pushing in a somewhat more psychedelic direction. This is the first time the record has been reissued on vinyl.

Blue Orchids
The Once and Future Thing

Blue Orchids are a sort of alternate-universe vision of what The Fall could have been: they are comprised of the original line-up of the band after Mark E Smith headed off to form Fall’s mark 1, 2, 3, 4… The Once And Future Thing is an unexpected brand new album, decades after the last! Although the cover art doesn’t look so brand new… Out on Tiny Global Productions.
