Simple Minds – Someone Somewhere (In Summertime) (1982)

Slightly worried that, with this post and the last, I’m going to be regarded as some sort of fey, New Romantic type. Nothing could be further from the truth….

On the other hand, what, precisely, is wrong with a ruffled collar? It’s got me through several civil service interviews.

But, following the Crystal Castles post, I just needed to remind all and sundry that, in their early days, Simple Minds were a great band. I loved the New Gold Dream album and this track shows that a lot of bands were influenced by Jim Kerr and the fellas.

Obviously, they went way off message in due course into some nightmare, bloated, rock leviathan world that, on its own, would have justified the end of the earth in some apocalyptic nuclear armageddon. But, remember, 1982 was the early, innocent, days.
