    I think it's a testimony to the open-minded attitude of the 90s that Bjork could become a mainstream artist.

    1. Big Time Sensuality
    2. It's Oh So Quiet
    3. Human Behaviour
    4. Come To Me

    Simple Minds

    sm.jpg

    Simple Minds is a Scottish rock band, formed in Glasgow in 1977. They are one of most commercially successful Scottish bands ever, having achieved five UK number one albums during their career and sold over 70 million records worldwide. Despite various personnel changes, they continue to record and tour.

    [​IMG]

    The roots of Simple Minds are in the short-lived punk band Johnny & The Self-Abusers, founded on the South Side of Glasgow in 1977. The band was conceived by would-be Glasgow scene-maker Alan Cairnduff, although he left the job of organising the band to his friend John Milarky. At Cairnduff’s suggestion, Milarky teamed up with two musicians he had never worked with before – budding singer and lyricist Jim Kerr and guitarist Charlie Burchill. Kerr and Burchill had known each other since the age of eight.

    [​IMG]

    In November 1977, Johnny & The Self-Abusers released its only single, "Saints and Sinners", on Chiswick Records (which was dismissed as being "rank and file" in a Melody Maker review). The band split on the same day that the single was released, with Milarky and McNeil going on to form The Cuban Heels. Ditching the stage names and the overt punkiness, the remaining members continued together as Simple Minds (naming themselves after a David Bowie lyric from his song "Jean Genie")
