Blue Orchids

Blue Orchids

Blue Orchids has been played on NTS in shows including The Uline Catalog, featured first on 18 August 2013. Songs played include Work, All Tomorrow's Parties and Hanging Man.

Martin Bramah teamed up with Una Baines, another alumnus of The Fall, to form The Blue Orchids late in 1979, in Manchester, England.

Bramah’s voice whether wailing, shouting, or calling is always looking for a different angle, another way of being. Una’s strung-out keyboard playing, flowing and soaring, weaving around Martin’s inventive, discordant guitar patterns. The overall effect created a madcap cathedral of sound.
