‘Simple Minds’ by Live on “Hear Here” Scottish TV, 1980
Absolutely everything I love about early Simple Minds all here in one little dynamic live set. They were just ‘ON’ from the get go! Amazing young musicians in Derek Forbes, Mick MacNeil and Brian McGee – not forgetting two stalwarts of Charlie Burchill and Jim Kerr – what a frontman he is! Yes, biased, I know! But just watch him – a wonderful blend of raw talent, aloofness, coolness and (dare I say?) sexiness. I fall more and more in love with him each day 🙂
