Scottish rockers ORANGE JUICE were honoured with a lifetime achievement prize at the Tartan Clef Awards in Glasgow on Saturday (22Nov08).
The 1980s group were hailed for their contributions to the music industry at the ceremony, which celebrates the best in Scottish music - three years after frontman Edwyn Collins almost died from a brain haemorrhage.
The Fratellis picked up another of the night's top gongs - the SECC Tartan Clef award - while local stars The Almighty won the rock category, singer Eddi Reader walked off with the Singer/Songwriter Of The Year prize, and Dougie MACLean took home the Guitar Traditional, Folk and Roots accolade.
Former Texas singer Sharleen Spiteri was also a winner at the show - she was presented with the Outstanding Contribution to Music award.
The Tartan Clef Awards raises money for the Nordoff-Robbins charity, which promotes the use of music as therapy for people with disabilities.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
