OJ after VU.

The fact that Collins won over this summer's Glastonbury crowd by performing with Roddy Frame, means that Glasgow's influential but astonishingly short-lived Postcard Records, of which Orange Juice and Aztec Camera were a part, is perhaps also due a critical comeback. For those who were too busy at the time, perhaps rioting or worrying about Lady Di's weight, or for those not fortunate enough to have been born, Postcard is a label worthy of exploration. Since it only released 13 singles (in its early incarnation, at least), it shouldn't take too long.

The Postcard tourist trail. The story starts here in Baliol Street where a joiner's cellar became a recording studio.
