Simple Minds: Heart Of The Crowd

An official oral history of Simple Minds

Heart of the Crowd book

With a foreword written by Jim Kerr.

Simple Minds are one of the UK’s most successful bands, having achieved six No.1 albums in the UK as well as hitting the top spot in countless other territories including Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Australia and New Zealand.

Simple Minds have been musical pioneers for 40 glittering years selling over 60 million records. Catching the mood of the post-punk era, when the angry sounds of 1977 were splintering into a thousand different shapes, they emerged with a style rooted in the art-rock of David Bowie and the electronic dance of Donna Summer. They went on to become one of the great bands of their generation, deploying rousing choruses and booming atmospherics to provide a soundtrack that has endured.

They topped the American chart with Don’t You (Forget About Me) and followed suit in the UK with Belfast Child. Three of their 20 studio albums reached number one in the UK, they starred at Live Aid and they played three momentous London shows in honour of Nelson Mandela.

A spellbinding touring band, that have graced the world’s biggest stadiums, Simple Minds are now marking their 40th anniversary with a live album, a career-spanning compilation and this new book.

  1. Hi. I ordered Simple Minds – Heart of the Crowd limited edition on 2nd December and, although payment has gone through on PayPal, I haven’t had an email order confirmation from you. I hope everything’s alright with the order as it’s a special present for my son as we are both avid fans. Could you please confirm the order and let me know when I can expect it to be delivered. Many thanks.
