This review is from: Glittering Prize 81/92 (Audio CD)
At heart, NO MATTER What No Age Wise I reach! I am a surviving 'NEW ROMANTIC,' At present due to ill health "At Pupae Stage in Life Cycle Of Such Cruelly 'Short Life,' Of All Butterflies" whose image reflects/stabs for:- FREEDOM...I have a tattoo of one, back of my Neck, **STAR:- Suzy Quatro,** has one on her ankle she had tattooed when Divorced from her bands 'Guitarist!'
I shall Emerge In Short Period As A Beautiful......."Glittering Prize," (Trying Hard As Possible!) since I have Fabulous Seats For "Simple Minds," Live On Tour @ Blackpool Opera House 19th April 2013!
I Desperately Wish To Dress As I Did In This "Memorable," Period In MY Life, 1980's when Late Teens To 20 something's were either:-
'NEW ROMANTICS, following Simple Minds, Japan, Duran Duran, Spandex, whoops sorry! My Beloved Spandau Ballet (Ex image of Tony Hadley) OMD, Visage, Vienna, Siouxxie & The Banshees (apologies to fans if spelling incorrect of First Name:- "Superstition," my favourite track, Adam & The Ants, etc, etc, etc!
'Glittering Prize!" Was played on my 'Walkman, on Autoreverse constantly (Occasional Chat!) to & From PARIS, France for a LONG WEEKEND in 80's with Friend from Work:- Amelia Hall!
I lost my heart to Charlie (Guitar/Bass Player, Simple Minds!) Jim Kerr, were Patsy Kensit & Chrissie Hynde (The Pretenders) MAD TO MARRY& THEN DIVORCE HIM ????
Cannot wait for April 2012 however life is short, every day to be Lived to its fullest, this is it, life is not a 'Rehearsal!'
Anyone know if Human League, Go West, Heaven 17, ABC, All Of The above touring soon or together 2013+ please, Together or alone, Opera House/Winter Gardens, Blackpool only Venue I can reach! Thank you!
In my opinion, 'Glittering Prize,' receives zillions/10. & should be listed as one of Greatest Albums of 1980's- Don't always need 'Best Of/Greatest Hits Album, with talent in EXTREME......SIMPLE MINDS!!!!
