01 Feb, 2013 Jim Kerr to talk on ‘The Real McCoy’ Radio Show
Jim Kerr gives an incredibly in-depth interview during a ‘Real McCoy Radio Show Special’ hosted by Martin Hanlin on KX93.5 Radio, Laguna Beach, CA.
Jim Kerr and Martin Hanlin spend a few hours talking about the history and music of Simple Minds. From Life in A Day all the way through to Jim’s solo project Lostboy! AKA.
Not so much an interview, this is a conversation between 2 school friends who eventually started working together 25 years later just as Simple Minds started to work on Our Secrets Are the Same. The pair worked together over the next decade and a bit spanning the albums Cry, Neon Lights, Black & White 050505, Graffiti Soul and the Lostboy! AKA album and tours, both with the full band and then the stripped down Lostboy! Electro tour.
Hanlin covers the fans point of view as well as that of a good friend. There’s a few surprises, a few unheard stories, lots of great memories and plenty of fantastic Simple Minds music.
Hanlin’s all time fav Simple Minds track ‘New Warm Skin’ kicks off the show as the pair trade off song choices from all the albums.
