Minds Music Monday – Underneath The Ice

In the canon of Simple Minds work, some songs get forgotten about…lost…overshadowed or under-appreciated.

In making a choice for this week’s MMM, I wanted to choose a track that was topical. I was thinking about the weather and the time of year and with it being “Blue Monday” today, I thought this neglected gem needed a bit of a highlight.

Enjoy.

A Bedroom Fit For A 14 Year Old (In 1984)

Several months back, I acquired some posters. I recently got a couple up on the walls, which meant removing other SM memorabilia off my walls to make them fit. Today those things were placed back up on the walls with some of the other posters making their debut on my bedroom walls.

Also my amazing prize that I won from the Echo Lab from buying raffle tickets to win a drumhead signed by Cherisse (with a signed photo also) arrived today. I’m yet to put that on the wall though, as I will need to get a suitable frame so I can display it.

The Eye Of The Beholder

A chat and a bit of a look-see at my new fangirl treasure…

I think this must be from 1982 – perhaps in Berlin – despite looking up Max Kohr and it showing him based in Cologne. There’s a caption on the back that Google Translate says translates as “soon in our city”, so it could have been taken anywhere in Germany…or elsewhere in Europe, even.

Isn’t it FABULOUS?! 🥰🥰🥰

One Week In

I had a bit of a breakthrough shortly after doing this video and cracked even more of it again after a coffee and some stollen.

The photo below shows how it looks at day’s end today.
