Today in Duran History – Blame the Machines!

On today’s date in 2010, Mark Ronson became the hero of all Duranies…very nearly our own patron saint! Why is that you ask?  Was this the date he began working with the band? (Nope!) Did they ever name him as the fifth member?? (No. No they did not.) No…Mark did something that will endear him to us forevermore.  He gave us the gift of playing 30 seconds of “Blame the Machines” during his show on East Village Radio.

Do you hear trumpets of triumph or angels singing…or is that just me?

I remember back when we used to get snippets…..*sigh*  In fact if the band wants to send us a gift of a snippet right now as you read this, I am safely out of town…probably without cell service because I’m camping. On vacation for the next several days, in fact.  I might never even know!!!  *gasp*

However, in case that never happens…we have the fond memory of Mark playing brand new, unreleased Duran Duran on his radio show. At least somebody was looking out for the fans….
