UNEARTHED JOY!

I LITERALLY WANT TO CRY! I CANNOT BELIEVE I FOUND THIS AFTER ALL THIS TIME! AND…I COULD HAVE HAD A COPY.
FUCK YOU RARE RECORDS FOR GETTING MY COPY LOST IN THE POST (SUPPOSEDLY!)
AND THAT PHOTO IN THE SPREAD IS SSOOOOOO A VIRGINIA TURBETT…I WILL PUT MY HOUSE ON IT (I am sssssoooooo asking her!)
I can’t express how immeasurably happy I am to have found this. Still not quite the same as having my very own copy…but it’ll have to do!
😁😪😪😁😁😁
I actually archived the pages…but will also put the link here to view it as I found it. Beyond the article itself are reviews of Love Song AND SAF/SFC plus an advert for the album mentioning the Ltd Ed 3000 copies of SFC (one of which I was lucky enough to hunt down and purchase when out in Oz in 2015/16) and with tour dates printed. And the journos words about Jim’s songwriting in the album review is just…WOW!

Here is the article online for viewing…if you so wish: CLICK HERE

Flowers – Icehouse

A flashback – to a time when I’d play this album on the family stereo system in the lounge room. Again, ever thankful for having older brothers that had fabulous music taste. How many other kids were sitting around listening to Flowers’ (as they were then) debut album when they were 9 years old?

Ivor’s Place

There’s a pun in there for you canny people to find with that blog post title! 😉

Anyway…

I have never done a piece that wasn’t Simple Minds or David Bowie inspired before, but wanting to link to that Iva Davies interview on YT, I made a VERY quick piece for it this afternoon. Well, just now I expanded on it and turned it into a full on piece.

I love this song! So damn sexy!
WHERE IS MY COPY OF ROADRUNNER MAGAZINE WITH IVA AND JIM ON THE COVER???!!! *cries* Why did it have to get lost in the post? :-(((( I will FOREVER lament…unless by some miracle at some point it appears. This I will not hold my breath on!

I’m still holding out a tiny, weeny SMIDGEN of hope that this has not been lost/not making its way to me :-(( I cannot find another copy ANYWHERE! If only there had been a clean, crisp shot of the cover, I probably never would have bought it. Actually feel like crying thinking that it may just disappear in some void, never to be seen again :-(( #JimKerr #SimpleMinds
