Martin Bramah teamed up with Una Baines, another alumnus of The Fall, to form The Blue Orchids late in 1979, in Manchester, England.

Bramah’s voice whether wailing, shouting, or calling is always looking for a different angle, another way of being. Una’s strung-out keyboard playing, flowing and soaring, weaving around Martin’s inventive, discordant guitar patterns. The overall effect created a madcap cathedral of sound.
