"Simple Minds": A Visual Documentary


Simple Minds: A Visual Documentary follows the career of the most popular and successful Scottish rock act of all time. Formed in Glasgow in 1977 as Johnny And The Self Abusers by singer Jim Kerr and guitarist Charlie Burchill, their carerr reached spectacular heights in the summer of 1989 when they performed a series of concerts at Wembley Stadium. Lavishly illustrated, the book charts the band's progress in a month by month chronology, stretching back to the minimalism of the post punk fall out. Author Mike Wrenn documents the many musical styles that the Minds pursued until their worldwide hit Don't You (Forget About Me) and their appearance at Live Aid in 1985 brought them truly international success. Numerous quotes from the band's many interview are also included, together with a detailed breakdown of the various personnel changes that have occured in the band over the years and a complete discography.
