Simple Minds Reveal New Lead Singer!

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the stage…

Jim Cur! Lol (only meant in jest and for some fun, obviously. Couldn’t pass up the opportunity to play with the “Kerr/Cur” homophone). 😊😊😊😊

The Classic Pop Kitchen Sink!

The new edition of Classic Pop magazine, which I received today, is chock full of goodies this month – a dissection of electro-pop godfathers’ Kraftwerk’s seminal album, Autobahn…a main article on the Mandela 70th Bithrday concert – which has a second feature of Sir in amongst it (I will share these in separate posts)…a feature on John Foxx’s new Metamatic reissued boxset, amongst other things. Really worth the buy this month.

Here’s a little melting pot of things that caught my eye, for now…

Sir talks Don’t You (Forget About…my hair), there’s a rather scathing review of Eighth Wonder’s singular album release getting a red vinyl reissue, a review of Byran Ferry’s gig at the London Palladium (oh, don’t I wish I could turn back time by just  FRACTION so I could go!), and finally, new pin-up boys on the block in 1979, Tubeway Army…featureing the Kerr doppelgänger, Billy Currie (just in case I need to point him out, standing just behind Numan’s left shoulder).

Enjoy the mishmash for now…the rest will be posted shortly.

 

From The Deathbed

Oh, Mr Kerr, you are beautiful ❤️ Thank you to a certain someone sharing this on their FB timeline…just what I needed on my deathbed. If I die during my sleep tonight…I will die happy.

Thank you for everything you’ve ever given me, Sir. I shall carry it with me always 😘😘😘😘😘😘
