Biografia

The Blue Orchids formed late in 1979, in Manchester, England. Producing a pure slice of sound from the same white-hot melting pot that gave birth to the Buzzcocks, Joy Division, The Fall, New Order, The Smiths etc…

Martin Bramah (vocals,guitar) was Mark E Smith’s music machine during the early days of The Fall with Una Baines (keyboards) from 1977-1979.

It began when Martin Bramah teamed up with Una Baines to form the group’s creative nucleus.

Bramah’s voice whether wailing, shouting, calling or just talking is always looking for a different angle, another way of being. Una’s inspired, strung-out keyboard playing, flowing and soaring, weaving around Martin’s inventive, discordant guitar patterns. The overall effect created a madcap cathedral of sound. Paul Morley, when reviewing their second single PlayWork said, “They rave but they are not mad.”

The name of the band came from John Cooper Clarke, Manchester’s “Punk Poet”, who envisioned the Blessed Orchids as a bunch of haemophiliacs raised by alsaition dogs on a council tip, the weediest gang in Salford! Somehow, the Blessed became the Blue and these rare and fragile blooms were born.
