May Fan of the Month: Neilio
When did you become a fan? I became a fan in 1982. Why? What drew you to the band? It was hearing Hungry Like the Wolf and later seeing the video. What I particularly liked was the Jean-Michel Jarresque synth line, which runs through the song. How do you participate in the fandom? What do you… Continue reading May Fan of the Month: Neilio
Thank You, You’re Welcome (Part Two)
Thank You was a misguided album born from good intentions. Let’s try to figure out what went wrong. Imagine what could have been if they took a slightly different path…
Thank You, You’re Welcome – Part One
The inexplicable decision to record Thank You in the wake of a commercial resurgence continues to perplex me whenever I revisit it. What should have Thank You sounded like?
How Far Will You Go?
Here’s a topic for you – how far are you willing to go to make sure Duran Duran stays on the charts? Let me back up a bit. Back in May, album pre-sales were announced for Future Past.

In My Bones – the Podcast “Primer”
So, once upon a time, I decided to record a podcast as a sort of primer to In My Bones. Thinking that perhaps it might be fun to talk about Dom’s new album as an <insert laughter here> unbiased reporter, I did my homework. I listened to the album approximately eleventy-thousand times, took copious notes,… Continue reading In My Bones – the Podcast “Primer”
