A new release by Hanging Around Books sees images taken in 1978 by Laurie Evans feature in the book.
I feel ssooo bad as I made the horrendous assumption that Laurie is a man! My apologies, Laurie.
I’ve been waiting a while on this one as I had contacted Laurie some time back from seeing photos she’d taken of Jim on the banks of the Clyde years ago and enquired about prints. She told me of its imminent release then and I have been eagerly awaiting its arrival since then.
The book is officially released on Feb 28th but is available to pre-order.
Use the link below for order details.
P.S. I don’t care how it sounds but – he is goddamn beautiful on that cover! There. It’s done.
“Dan Yer Man” will be taking part in a Q and A as well as performing with his band The Dark for White Hot Day on March 21st 2020.
Tickets are available through Tickets Scotland.
See you guys there!
My collection of Virginia Turbett prints of Simple Minds grows slowly yet strongly. A new batch arrived last week and I wanted to show what is in it without comprising the copyright of Virginia’s images. This is still just a small taster, and probably now the last you will see.
The prints are of stunning quality. Trust me, if you decide to buy, you will NOT be disappointed. This video doesn’t do them full justice (I have to be careful not to show them at optimum resolution as they’ll just end up being taken and used) but I hope you can get some sense of how wonderful they are. Some are just truly iconic. The ones taken at Tavistock Square in 1980…the whole photo session is gorgeous.
If you are interested in prints, contact Virginia via her website at: www.virginiaturbett.com
I saw this video on Daily Motion back in the early days of my fandom and it was up there in appalling quality. But now there is a clearer version that has surfaced on YouTube.
OMG! Jim Kerr…you beautiful, beautiful man! I adore you!
I think I have a final tally and “want” list with Virginia. I visited her on Saturday and came away with 13 original vintage prints and a big old list of digital prints to be done. It’ll be some collection at the end of it all….

This clip was around on YouTube last year and then shortly after disappeared. I was GUTTED when it disappeared. I only got a few screengrabs from it and although I made a bit of art from it as a result, I missed being able to watch the clip. I just love it…and I adore Jim in it.
So this time, I made sure it will NEVER, EVER disappear from me EVER again! Hopefully the Belgian station will always allow the clip to be viewable on their site..but if it ever disappears, I have my own copy of it saved now.
You can watch the whole clip by CLICKING HERE and going to the Sonuma website to view.
Huge thanks to mega SM fan, Carlos, for making us fans aware of it being available to watch on the Sonuma website.
