Orange Juice Reform

Rock band ORANGE JUICE are to reform - just three years after frontman EDWYN COLLINS almost died from a brain haemorrhage.
The group will reunite to play a one-off gig for the Nordoff-Robbins charity in their native Scotland next month (Nov08).
They enjoyed a huge hit with Rip It Up in 1983 but split in 1985 after describing their career as a "rollercoaster ride".
Collins launched a successful solo career, soaring up the charts in the 1990s with the song A Girl Like You.
Drummer Steven Daly became a Vanity Fair journalist in New York, and bassist David MCClymont moved to Melbourne, Australia where he occasionally played bass for Kylie Minogue.
In 2005, Collins was admitted to hospital and placed in intensive care after suffering a brain haemorrhage.
Following surgery, he recovered but experienced side effects which limited his movement. He returned to the stage in 2007, and in June (08) he played at Britain's legendary Glastonbury Festival.
