Simple Minds: Jim Goes To Hollywood
Lynden Barber, New Musical Express, 3 January 1987
SIMPLE MINDS, and Jim Kerr in particular, always seem to be "out" when we phone... funny, that. But LYNDEN BARBER got a good connection, from Sydney to the UK. So we pick up the Simple story from there, and hear how they've accelerated their smooth passage into American hearts since 'Don't You (Forget About Me)'.
