Glasgow to London

  • This bubbling, synth-driven dance-rock track mashes up Edwyn Collins' former band Orange Juice and LCD Soundsystem. Mojo magazine asked the Scottish singer what made him write about Orange Juice. He replied:

    "I was thinking about traveling from Glasgow to London on the train. (The song) mentions the fruit and vegetable markets. I was recording near Berwick Street in London, recording the You Can't Hide Your Love Forever album, in the early day days of Orange Juice. You don't really get those kinds of markets in Glasgow."
