The Thatcher Crisis Years

1980s politics blog from TV historian Tony McMahon

Oh my – this was before Simple Minds became a bloated stadium band.  They were humble electro folk when ‘I Travel’ was released and I picked up my single in Small Wonder Records in Walthamstow.  Might be wrong, but I thought Mr Kerr once said he would never play monster venues – but anyway, he did and his bank manager has been thanking him ever since.

So – an innocent and very young Simple Minds.
