Edwyn Collins: Understated CD
John Niven, novelist and screenwriter, on UNDERSTATED: ’
31 years of rock and roll,’ Collins sings on, well, ‘31 Years’. The remarkable thing is that he sings it without sorrow, or any sense of a rueful look down the past, but with the joy that he really couldn’t have done anything finer with his life. The fact that the track breezes and swaggers like a teenager beautifully undercuts the point - it really has been that long.
