Simple Minded's aim is to capture the sound and energy that Simple Minds produced during the 'New Gold Dream' and 'Tour du Monde' tours. Early rehearsal recordings received the praise from the likes of Derek Forbes and Bruce Findlay as well as Simple Minds fans all over the world.
Simple Minded debuted at the Saltcoats Rock Festival in July 2009, but it wasn't until their 1st headlining gig in Falkirk where the fun began with Derek Forbes joining the band on stage with a version of Changeling that brought the house down.
Further shows including playing an after show to Simple Minds 2009 SEC gig followed. During Simple Minded's recent show Brian McGee joined the band on stage to sing backing vocals during Chelsea Girl, once again bringing the house down.
