100 Mavericks # 50 Edwyn Collins

Gauche, fey and utterly against the grain. 'He looked like a boyish Bowie with a great swoop of draping hair. He wrote great songs and dressed uniquely in flannel shirts, New Wave sports coats, and tapered trousers, like a cross between Joy Division, the Byrds and Creedence Clearwater Revival.

The first Orange Juice singles Falling and Laughing and Blue Boy were driven by Chic-style grooves played without Chic-level skill.'
