simple minds #2

background:
After the departure of John Milarky and Alan McNeil, the remaining members of Simple Minds #1 clarified their new direction and started to look for new recruits.

An advert was placed in the paper for a keyboard player, something all the previous line-ups lacked.

Meanwhile, rehearsals continued in Tony Donald's uncle's lampshade factory, with Jim and Charlie writing new songs (including the black-anthem Pleasantly Disturbed).

December 1977 - January 1978


recording/releases:
None


live legacy:
None


break-up:
Not a break-up as such, but their newspaper advertisement was unexpectedly answered.
