Being seriously silly on a grand scale quite another. That's what differentiates DLR from say Jim Kerr and Kiss from Limp whatsits.


Well that and the fact that Simple Minds made two great albums early on.


Yes everything up to New Gold Dream (even Life In A Day) was pretty good. "Hunter and the Hunted" is especially glorious. Though when they turned into stadium alt hooligan rock they were the last word in fanfare swathed self-importance. Which is why they sound just right in the context of Sky's football programmes and all that "Super Sunday" hoopla. The perfect soundtrack to a post-pub punch-up.

Some people get wound up by long drum solos and guitar "heroics" I get wound up by certain guitar FX and don't get me started on Fairlights and Roland clave and handclap sounds. I would be glad to never hear another Roy Thomas Baker, Steve Lillywhite or Trevor Horn record. The men who took the rock out of rock.

Anyway I digress.
