VINYL: Fave Simple Minds 12 inch remixes? I am fond of Leckie's and our very first12inch - I Travel. I do like Lillywhite's Speed Your Love. I can't remember who did the Hypnotise extended - but I loved it. Ultimately Johnson's remixes of Honest Town and Midnight Walking are rather splendid.

What are your fave 1980s 12-inch singles and remixes incidentally?

SIMPLE MINDS : NOT QUITE 40 YEARS.

Not to make too much of a fuss...quite yet. Nevertheless it was a mind boggling 39 years ago this very week that Simple Mind crept onto a pitch black stage in Satellite City, Glasgow, to play our first ever gig. On January 17 to be precise.
And it is genuinely hard for me to believe that that is so.
After all, stop to consider how long that actually...

Been going there for more than 30 years, it has become...

THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS : HEAVEN

Despite the chill in Scotland, it's been a beautiful day. Found a spot by the river at the bottom of the garden, and watched the purest water flow. Never-ending, always in motion, like time itself, inevitably thought of the year just passed and the coming year ahead.
Finally, with the sunlight warming my back as it also hit the rocks on the riverbed below, for a...
