the orange juice

Orange Juice found little consolation in the exclusive and elusive celtic beauty of this sensitive swan song.  The band had formed in Glasgow, Scotland in 1976 as The Nu-Sonics, changing their name to Orange Juice three years later.  After achieving success on the indie chart with singles released on Postcard Records, they signed to Polydor to record their debut 'You Can't Hide Your Love Forever' with Edwyn Collins, James Kirk, David McClymont, and Steven Daly.  By their second album  'Rip It Up'  Kirk and Daly had left to be replaced by Malcolm Ross and Zeke Manyika.  The title track was the band's only top forty hit, peaking at number eight and giving them a much larger audience.  They worked with reggae producer Dennis Bovell on their next project, the 'Texas Fever' EP.  When McClymont, and  Daly left the group, Collins and Manyika went back into the studio with Bovell to record 'The Orange Juice'.  Bovell produced the sessions with Will Gosling and Phil Thornalley.  The album features Edwyn Collins on guitar, synthesizer, vocals, and songwriting;  and Zeke Manyika on drums, vocals, percussion, and songwriting;  with Clare Kenny on bass;  Dennis Bovell on keyboards;  and Johnny Britton on guitar.
