Original line-up Simple Minds to record once again
The original members of Simple Minds are due to work together for the first time in 27 years when they enter a recording studio in the middle of June 2008. Brian McGee, Derek Forbes, Mick McNeil, Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill, have set their aim on producing at least two new tracks that could be released later this year, possibly as part of a boxset. Regarded by both Jim and Charlie as a 'nice experiment'.

Jim Kerr said "Of course I am excited with the prospect of working with the original line - up once more. I had always believed that the day would come when we would get the opportunity to do so. The last time we worked together was on our Sons and Fascination/Sister Feelings Call album, featuring songs like The American, Themes for Great Cities, Love Song etc, and it is still considered by many as among our best ever work. We have a lot to live up to, but we intend to have some fun attempting to do just that."
