Simple Minds In Classic Pop Magazine

Simple Minds are the main feature in this month’s Classic Pop magazine, talking tours, new material, recording time, as well as talking about the release of the Street Fighting Years box set.

Non-subscribers to the magazine will be able to purchase the cover seen above, but subscribers get a different exclusive cover. I will post image of that later.

There is also a review of SFY further within the magazine.

So far the reviews for Street Fighting Years haven’t been overly kind. And this isn’t much different. Not as harsh as the Mojo hiding that’s for sure. I now find myself getting strangely defensive of the album.

Holy Freaking Hell! Look At These!

COMING SOON! (In three weeks, to be exact!)

Ermageerrrrrrd! I had seen that picture of Charlie before but NEVER these pictures of Jim! Holy freakballs – I WANT THEM! Laurie Evans – I PRAY you sell these as prints! I’ve GOT to have them! How the hell did it take me TWO MONTHS to find these out on the web?!

I suppose I go trawling around every day for ages…never see anything new, then give up for a while…and then LO! PHOTOGRAPHIC VISUAL GOLD!

I NEED THESE IN MY LIFE!

He’s So “Made Up”! – A Mini Kerrsday Thursday

Throwback to when Kerrsday Thursday used to be a thing on this pathetic excuse of a fan blog….

Priptona's Simple Minds Space

I, just a few days ago, bought a bunch of clippings on eBay. Some things within I already had copies of (the whole NME December 4th, 1982 edition with Jim on the cover, taken by Anton Corbijn, for example). There are actually a number of good things…gig reviews, album and single reviews…some Belgian magazine articles, etc…but I primarily bought them for THIS!

If you have visited this blog regularly, you’ll know how much I have coveted this picture, and wanted it in colour. The only other colour copy I had seen of this was barely 2 x 3 inches in size. This one is approximately 8 x 10 inches. Oh…that make up! Look at him! Beautiful beastie he is! I mean…yeah, he’s alright. Lol

Ahem. Decorum, decorum.

Anyway, I am “made up” to have myself a colour copy of it.

It’s only just a snap of it on my iPad…

The Mysterious Pic

I am quite proud of this one. It appeared on my FB memories. Thought it deserved a reblog.

A couple of weeks back, I was asked whether I’d like to work on a photo of Jim taken at one of the US shows by a lady that attended. She had seen some of my work on Instagram and really liked what she saw and asked if I’d like to try something with one of her photos. I had full creative control on what to do with it.

Tonight I went to work and something pretty fab unfolded, so here is the result.

Thanks to Vidhya @mysteriousdays2 on Instagram for giving me the chance to play around with such a fab photo. I’m so happy you’re happy with the result.
