      Blue Orchids

      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 magik pop psych masterpieces choc stock (oh yes) with fabulous gems full of rich, resonant sounds and stinging, esoteric lyrics. Recently we’ve enjoyed what Martin Bramah calls, “the first covers concept album” the centrepiece of which is, “a pivotal anomaly”,  an unseen Mark E Smith lyric from 1977, which Bramah has only now set to music.  The Magical Record Of Blue Orchids’ on Tiny Global Productions hs wonderful interpretations of nuggets from The Penny Saints, The Aardvarks, The Growlers’, Crystal Stilts etc. And 2018’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 last time Bramah and Co. hit Parkway,  as they shook the embers of harmonic feedback off their clothing and made off into the night. That was a superb Blue Orchids show.   Buy the records, attend the gigs, appreciate the illusive magic of  Blue Orchids. A very special group. With Green Embers – A soulful indie rock of an Elbow bent [bent Elbow?] with widescreen alt  atmospherics, hence Ms Lauren Laverne is all over em like a rash (well, she likes ’em muchly)

      Cost: £12 on the door £10 in advance
