Context Matters: Duran’s Recent Album Cycles

Photo by Nataliya Vaitkevich on

The other day, I started to think about how Future Past will be judged in a year, in 5 years, in 10 years, etc. Of course, you can ponder this question based solely on the music, lyrics, vocals, etc. You might be able to determine it by examining commercial success in terms of chart positions… Continue reading Context Matters: Duran’s Recent Album Cycles

Plastic Paradise

I feel as though the past week has been a whirlwind, and I’m not even in the band! Each day has a variety: things to watch, articles to read, new music, and chart news I couldn’t have even imagined.

Andy Taylor Comes Home!

By Dee Cooke While the Duran gig on Tuesday 14th September was more fabulous than I could ever have expected, I had a very good reason for being unable to stick around for the second night – I already had tickets for another exciting show! I made a quick train journey from Birmingham back home to… Continue reading Andy Taylor Comes Home!

The Perfect First Duran Duran Experience

By Dee Cooke This wasn’t meant to be my first ever Duran Duran gig… but I’m so glad that it was! I was originally meant to see Duran live for the first time in Dublin in June 2020, and then again a month later in Hyde Park. However, those shows were of course postponed to 2021,… Continue reading The Perfect First Duran Duran Experience

Changed Honeymoon Plans Create More Joy!

The happy couple: honeymooners Nick & Suzanne!

By Nick Thompson Let’s set the scene: a Tuesday evening in a run down area one mile out of the Birmingham city centre. A venue capacity of 2500 people, with a full-queue around the block of an old converted church and assembly hall to see Duran play live for the first time in five years.… Continue reading Changed Honeymoon Plans Create More Joy!
