About this release
After leaving the Virgin label, and a one-off album with Chrysalis, Simple Minds took stock and decided to make records for themselves. An album of cover versions of songs dear to Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill, “Neon Lights” was released in October 2001.
The band put their inimitable stamp on songs by Van Morrison, David Bowie, Pete Shelley, Patti Smith, Kraftwerk, The Doors, Echo & The Bunnymen, Neil Young, Roxy Music and the Velvet Underground.
Also included are four bonus tracks: covers of the Human League and Joy Division, plus two remixes.
Housed in a handsome digipak, the booklet features photos and newly-written revealing annotation by Jim Kerr himself.
