Jaine Henderson, provided the lightshow for the band, which was literally four light bulbs, four on and off
switches, and a large perspex head with a blue police light in it (which only lasted for a handful of gigs as it
was so shabby.)
She also drew up the early Simple Minds artwork, using an image of
Jim's head which later evolved into the 'Red Eye' logo. In fact, she was also responsible for
his early 'basin-bowl' haircut from the 1978-1979 era.
Her brother David, was also involved, being the "sound and ideas" man.
However, with David being ousted in early 1980 to make way for
Billy Worton, her role in the group became more isolated. The writing was on the wall
by early 1981: she didn't fit in with the macho world of touring, she'd become romantically associated with
Jim (leading to mutterings that the lighting was to enhance him and not the rest of the band), and
roadcrew and management were now talking about getting more 'professional' lighting.
Her last gig as lighting engineer was August 28th 1980 at the Hammersmith Palais.
(The picture shows her as a model for L'oreal taken at a later date).
