Sherwood Pines, Saturday 18th June 2011
When I was around 15, I was heavily involved in badminton which meant a lot of travelling across the country. This meant time on the road and during those days Simple Minds was the soundtrack to early mornings and late nights at weekends. Their recent appearance at Sherwood Pines was a great opportunity to relive those days – or was it?
Simple Minds faded into the background as I got older and discovered more bands around what would be eventually labelled the Britpop scene. The music landscape has changed again since then and I wondered whether Simple Minds are just enjoying the 80’s nostalgia
