The Throwback Thursdays Retro Video Project Presents; Simple Minds pt2

More from my Throwback Thursdays Retro Video Project. This week; More Simple Minds.
SIMPLE MINDS ~ "THIS FEAR OF GODS";


A song off the 1981 third album "Empires & Dance" using a 1924 abstract film "Symphonie Diagonale" by Swedish/German Dada film-maker Viking Eggeling.

SIMPLE MINDS ~ "COLOURS FLY & CATHERINE WHEELS";


A track off the 1982 fifth album "New Gold Dream" using a 1912 film by Spanish film-maker (albeit working in France) Segundo De Chomon, a contemporary of George Melies whose style he built on.

SIMPLE MINDS ~ "CATWALK";


This track off the 1984 "Sparkle In The Rain" uses another film by Segundo De Chomon, "The Japanese Butterflies" from 1908. I also used this one for a track by The Band Of Susans.

SIMPLE MINDS ~ "SHAKE OFF THE GHOSTS";


An instrumental track off "New Gold Dream" using a 1924 by German Dada film-maker Walter Ruttmann, an associate of Viking Eggeling.

SIMPLE MINDS ~ "A BRASS BAND IN AFRICA CHIMES";


Another instrumental track, used as the b-side to the 1984 "Don't You Forget About Me" 12in single but most actually recorded earlier either during the sessions for their sixth album "Sparkle In The Rain" in 1983 since they used the same producer Steve Lillywhite. This is another film by Segundo De Chomon, "The Red Spectre" from 1907.
