By Heidi The song opens playful enough with the bass, but quickly falters to have a repetitive bland synth in the foreground. I often have the feeling that Duran Duran clutter the sound with too many indistinct instruments. That does not happen with All of You.  The instrumentation suits the clarity of the lyrics in… Continue reading All of You Review: Unique for Duran Duran

Favorite Concert: Skanderborg Festival (Smukfest) – August 13, 1989

By Heidi In August 1989 I had just turned 17 and left home a few months earlier, when I went to my first festival. It wasn’t a huge festival and it was beautifully located by a lake in a beech forest. Duran Duran was to close the festival Sunday afternoon/evening.

By Deleasa I wish I could recall how I felt the first time I heard “Invisible.” As the first single, it had a unique sound that immediately caught my attention.  It kicks off with a combination of crashing sound of the drums and whispering voice.  I wasn’t familiar with Graham Coxon at all but his… Continue reading Invisible Review: “A little realism is included”

Guest Blog: Medium Memories

It’s great to observe the fan joy surrounding Future Past. Wisely, Duran chose to release this album in multiple formats. Producer Erol Alkan posted his green vinyl edition. I posted my regret at NOT purchasing the vinyl version as I don’t own a record player anymore. The red, green, and white vinyl versions look amazing.… Continue reading Guest Blog: Medium Memories

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
