Orange Juice - Rip it up

Another one of my favourite's from my school days back in the 80's is this one. Rip it up by Orange Juice.
Orange Juice were a Scottish post-punk band founded in the middle class Glasgow suburb of Bearsden as the Nu-Sonics in 1976. Edwyn Collins formed the Nu-Sonics (named after a cheap brand of guitar) with his school-mate Alan Duncan and was subsequently joined by James Kirk and Steven Daly, who left a band called The Machetes.The band became Orange Juice in 1979. Their only song to break the Top 40 was "Rip It Up", which reached number 8 on the UK Singles Chart in February 1983.
