Martin Bramah’s Blue Orchids have been the most consistently enjoyable spin-off of The Fall since 1980 (first lineup included both Martin and Fall founder/keyboardist Una Baines - previously) and they’re back with a new single co-written by Mark E Smith back in the late 70s, “Addicted to the Day”

Reminds me of Giant Sand's Ballad of the Thin Line Man.

Thanks for this post. It sent me on a Spotify binge encompassing the Blue Orchids and the Monochrome Set, both of whom I had heard tell but never listened to. And I liked both of them, a lot.
