Same As It Ever Was…Can It Change?

Last ditch attempt at getting him to engage in conversation. If this falls flat, imma gonna give up and go home.

I am genuinely intrigued by his thoughts.

(Ah, the old “Top Fan” badge. Seems to have as much meaning as being deemed “air-breather” or “basic humanoid”.)

Other questions I could ask, but feel rhetorical… Do I bore you senseless? Do you wish me to fuck off and die?

Minds In America Live Album?

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.

Anyway, here’s the clip. Enjoy…
