Original Simple Minds Lineup Reform

One of my favorite '80s bands, Simple Minds, has reformed. While the band has continued to record and play live shows over the years, this will mark the first time in 27 years that the original lineup has recorded material together.

When it comes to band reunions, I am always a bit skeptical - note the Duran Duran reformation debacle of 2001. At the same time however, I am always a sucker for reunions if for no other reason than the nostalgia affect.

According to reports, Simple Minds have recorded enough material for two new records. Hopefully this will mark a glorious return to form for one of New Wave's pioneering acts.
