Default Orange Juice are

a group of 4 well-dressed and silly-haircut-sportin scottish lads from the 80s that played pretty post-punk for a few years a long time ago. The singer sounds a lot like Morrissey which for me is a bit of a bummer. I don't have any of their stuff and heard of them recently, youtube has been my friend. I'd post a vid but I'm not allowed to yet . I get the impression that they're worth checking out. Falling and Laughing is a good song.

The Glasgow School is a great compilation but I am not a fan of their studio albums. Good band though, they're Scottish so obviously they are good.

I thought the Glasgow School was complete rubbish. Other than that, I've only got You Can't Hide Your Love Forever, and I have to say I only really like Falling And Laughing and Untitled Melody.

I like it. It's a lot more raw, stripped back, etc.
Moscow Olympics is the ****.

Erp. I think there's some similarities- In a Nutshell kinda reminded me of Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now. Perhaps I overstated. Point was: I'm not a huge fan of the vocals.

I think I saw this compilation at one of my local secondhand record/movie shops. It was like 60$... **** wasn't even about to happen, no sir. The place is kinda a rip off... I sold them like 90$ worth of CDs and they gave me 15$ for um. Bleh.

The dude from Orange Juice sounds like a tone deaf bullfrog with a sinus infection and only wishes he could write/sing as well as Morrissey

That being said I think they are boring as hell & overrated, I think Scars should be held in higher regard than Orange Juice, as far as Scottish bands.

Scars are much better, I agree. I prefer Josef K as well.
