I’m sure it doesn’t seem the case to those who THINK they know me…I’m sure I seem the biggest blabber mouth on the face of the earth, but I CAN keep a bloody secret!
One that I was (somewhat accidentally, admittedly) entrusted with was the info there was going to be a live release from Simple Minds’ most recent tour of the U.S.
Today I received the latest issue of Classic Pop in the post and there’s a big old write up and interview with SM producer, Andy Wright. In amongst it, he talked about his working relationship with SM and within it was also the reveal of there being a live release of SM recorded during the resent U.S. tour. He says it’s going to be a 40 track thing…but that seems quite a lot. I’m not even sure 40 individual tracks made it on the setlist in America, did they? Perhaps some things played during soundcheck are being included? Who knows? We’ll see around Christmas time, I guess.
Exciting news nonetheless.
The melody…Jim’s voice…the lyrics! There have been some 333 days since its release…so I reckon that means I must have played this at least 500 times already (I never play the song just once – and I don’t listen to Walk Between Worlds every day, so hence my conservative estimate of 500 plays). I love it to bits!
The BEST song ever to exist about a school student chimp retaliating being bullied at school by burning said school down…
A beautiful treat for Christmas. Cherisse’s tour diary with Jim recorded in Sconny Botland. I get Christmas in Scotland after all 🙂
Thank you Simple Minds for being the most amazing band in the world. And to Jim for being…beautiful.
And thank you to everyone who comes to visit this crazy fangirl’s blog. Here’s to bigger and better things in 2019.
The latest edition of Rhythm magazine is out, and within its pages, confirmation of Cherisse Osei winning the Best Live Session Drummer category for 2018.
Past time musical collaborators with Simple Minds, Planet Funk, have a new track out called All On Me. It’s very catchy – you’d expect nothing less from the Planet Funk team. Take a listen!
(PS: Artwork looks a little Fiona Sutherland inspired…)
I really, really do lve Silent Kiss ❤️😊😚
The only pages I didn’t save were the ones giving me a link to my Top 100 Songs of 2018 playlist – which you’ll find a link to below – and the final “share” page to share your Spotify stats rundown via social media.
