Scottish Indie Legends ORANGE JUICE Released Their Debut LP ‘YOU CAN’T HIDE YOUR LOVE FOREVER’ 40 Years Ago

Back in time

17 February 2022

Who: Jangly indie popsters from Bearsden, Scotland
led by vocalist/songwriter Edwyn Collins who
started a successful solo career afterward
Active: 1979–1985 / 4 albums

Anniversary album: YOU CAN’T YOUR LOVE FOREVER
Released: February 1982 – 40 years ago

AllMusic/Tim Sendra wrote: “Made up of a couple re-recordings of brilliant songs from early singles (“Falling and Laughing,” “Felicity”), cleaned-up versions of songs from the demo, and a few new tracks, the album is a slick, tuneful slice of early-’80s pop that’s catchy and bright, and only slightly overcooked. Both Edwyn Collins and James Kirk could have retired after this album and been secure in the history books as two of the finest songwriters of the era.”
Full review here. Score: 4/5.

Turn Up The Volume: So influential for modern-day jingle-jangle
guitar bands. Indie pop at its effervescent and entertaining best.

Key single: Falling and Laughing
