As far as I know, only one track saw the light of day that is India ie track 5 from Billy's debut Transportation. The track was one of a few written with Forbes, McVeigh and Weston under the monicker World Service. This occurred at the same time as the recording of U-Vox. Billy probably bored looked elsewhere!!

Billy has yet to release the World Service demos and the live Humania album. smile

Thanks for that! smile

Anyhow should sound very interesting. If you listen to the track India (an instrumental incidentally) from Billy's Transportation album you'll find that some elements of this track sounds like the instrumental "Shake off the Ghosts" from Sparkle in the Rain.

This proves Derek's input into songwriting in particular the instrumentals. I guess there was more to Simple Minds than Kerr/Burchill.

Forbes/MacNeil How about that!!!

Cheers

nope,he deffo wasnt on the real life album.just been emailing him recently actually asking one or 2 questions so should be interesting to know exactly what happened and whether the rumours of him rejoining simple minds are true!!!they certainly could do with his inspiration again,as most of their albums post mick have been pretty dire

And here's Messrs Forbes and Macneil here, in a Glasgow Indian restaurant just a few weeks ago, along with Ian Donaldson (formerly of h2o). Bruce Watson had just left the band, FOURGOODMEN, a few days previously...hence Derek showing only three fingers on the bill headcount frown . I had to wipe his card number in Photoshop before uploading the pic biglaugh

Cheers Ash!

It's a great shot of a great line-up.

I do remember Ian crooning away on I Dream To Sleep, one of my all time favourite songs. Believe it or not I was playing H2O's Faith this morning!

That's a coincidence Chris smile
Have you heard Ian Donaldson's version of 'The Sun Aint Gonna Shine Anymore'? He emailed me it a few weeks ago and it's great! It was released back in the 80's as a solo single but it never hit the top 40. frown

Anyway, here's another shot of Mr Forbes and the other guys that was taken a few months ago, before Mr Watson left the band.

Well, he informed the band of his wish to move on, which the band accepted and respected. Being webmaster for the band I was privy to some of the reasons behind his decision, but obviously that's not for me to say. However, Bruce has decided to touch base with Mark and Tony from Big Country again, and could well be putting a few ideas together for a reunion. Bruce obviously feels there's something left in the BC tank. smile
I hope they do well if it comes off...

H2O! I used to like them too; especially as Ian Donaldson visited our local record shop back then (in Folkestone), and my friend and I bumped into him later on in the street - he was lost, so we ended up accompanying him to help him find his hotel! A nice guy, and a shame H2O didn't have a bit more success.

Peter John Vetesse was a member of Jethro tull 1982-1984. According to the bassplayer David Pegg, Peter was a dirty little man who liked to use the other groupmembers cameras and take pictures of his own ass!! :rolleyes:

I met Degsy Forbes underneath the Queensferry Bridge last Saturday. Took me across the Forth in his yacht so he did. He tried to aquaint me with his local Indian takeaway, Chillies, and showed me the menu...






I later met up with Mr Sleepwalker, and headed off to the Little Chef near the Oxgangs/Redford turn off. Midge has a Saturday job there, making breakfasts for those hungry truckers. We filled our bellies as Midge spoke about all things cookery. He does a mean fry up.

There is a photo of Derek in there, though admittedly it's not a good one of him, and you may not have recognised him from the pic. Funnily enough I was at a neighbour's yesterday who knew some of the crew (He works for Chris Rea, and has worked with some of the folk who used to work for the Minds.) Thanks for the compliment by the way.. not sure whether I would have described myself as a fine looking damsel, but I'll bottle that one.. Who knows what I'll look like by this time next week, especially after tackling Snowdon this weekend!! I'll bring the photos up to Greenock for those who haven't seen them yet.. some do come with a Government Health Warning!!

New Gold Dream, with a difference...

This footage was captured in the Seb Coe Suite at the Jury's Inn, Rotherham last year. It was an after party to remember. The quality of the clip isn't too good but here it is anyway...

No squire, it's a formed opinion. I agree.
I wonder if Simple Minds have handed in their rider for the upcoming tour.
I bet wee Chas Burchill has asked for the usual post-gig staple diet of Turkey Dinosaurs and alphabet spaghetti, weshed doon wirra blackcurrant froot shoot biglaugh He might even get his face painted wirra tiger on it, for the after party.

And Jim....oh dint talk to me aboot him eh mad
