Never knew that. Procrastination sometimes has its own rewards.
Turns out that the bloke who produced the first two Duran Duran albums, Colin Thurston, also produced the following seminal records:
Human League's 'Reproduction' Magazine's 'Secondhand Daylight' Our Daughter's Wedding 'Digital Cowboy' Talk Talk's 'The Party's Over' KajaGooGoo's 'White Feathers'
Well, seminal records for me, I mean.
And people still insist on sneering at Duran Duran after all these years. Dismissing them as being nothing more than vacuous pretty boys. Pop culture harbingers of Thatcherism.
"Pretty boys"? Have you ever seen John Taylor in his natural light? Fulham's Jimmy Bullard scrubs up better. If it weren't for the tunes and Simon Le Bon's Sondheim-like lyrics, Nick Rhodes would still be second assistant at the bovril stand at the Holte End to this day.
*With regards to the title of the post; Yeah I know that Colin Thurston didn't produce that particular classic Magazine track, but the song was ringing through my ears whilst spewing out this post.
