Simple Minds Info
Simple Minds have been many things to many people: sound scapers, sound-shapers, soundtrack makers, serial chart-toppers. They have influenced acts as diverse as the Manic Street Preachers, Primal Scream, Moby & The Horrors. They have been sampled by Nicky Minaj, David Guetta, Joey Negro & Freddy Bastone. They have provided memorable movie moments for directors Christian Carion (L'Affaire Farewell), Gregor Jordan (The Informers), Cameron Crowe (Elizabethtown), and of course John Hughes (The Breakfast Club). They have topped the British charts half a dozen times, with the studio albums Sparkle In The Rain (1984), Once Upon A Time (1985) and Street Fighting Years as well as the Ballad Of The Streets EP (both 1989), the concert recording Live In The City Of Light (1987), & the compilation Glittering Prize 81/92, and returned to the UK Top Ten with Graffiti Soul, their most recent studio album, in 2009.
