Falling And Laughing

Continuing 1980 with the debut single by Orange Juice,
(the first release on Postcard Records).

Orange Juice were another band, like the Monochrome Set, that I rediscovered in the internet era. When Franz Ferdinand hit in the early 2000s, everyone kept comparing them to the Gang Of Four, but I thought they sounded more (exactly) like Orange Juice. Alex Kapranos even acknowledged the influence that Edwyn Collins & OJ had on FF.
