This year’s RSD takes place on Saturday April 18th. There are some things that have piqued my interest, pictured below.
There is also a Steven Wilson mixes edition of Roxy Music’s eponymous debut album. For me, Field Music and kd Lang’s All You Can Eat and Drag would be lovely on vinyl. I used to play those and the Ingenue album SSSOO much. I absolutely ADORE her voice.
There is also the tenuous Simple Minds connected offering of Corporation Of One’s The Real Life – which as I understand it, oddly enough samples the title track from SM’s 1991 album.
Something for the purist, I guess. I can’t say I am that enthusiastic about it, but now I’ve said that, I’ll probably by it. Lol
Well played Ronnie Gurr for revealing this this evening. I’ve only ever seen a few of Richard Coward’s SM images. Obviously his photography was used for the Empires And Dance artwork and there’s an image of Jim he took in the Scottish Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh, but these are the only things I have ever seen.
News on the Virginia Turbett front. There’s a book on Iggy Pop coming out. In his own words, it seems. Not quite a memoir, as such, but more the printing of his lyrics with notes and photos complimenting and elaborating on the thought processes involved in the craft of songwriting.
It sounds really good. And a bit of a left-field choice for a publisher like Penguin Books!
Some of Virginia Turbett’s photos of Iggy feature in the book. And wow, she has taken some AMAZING photos of Iggy over the years. Along with continuing to expand upon my own personal Simple Minds archive of VT’s work, I plan to get some Iggy photos from her as well.
