While preparing ideas for the next record, they played a support slot for Magazine , following which they went back to the studio with Leckie to work on new material. Much of the album was written in the studio, although Simple Minds had been playing early versions of several tracks during the recent tour dates.
Innovations which the band displayed on Real to Real Cacophony included minimalist structures based around the rhythm section of Forbes and McGee, plus the occasional use of unconventional time signatures.
The band also experimented with elements of dub, and included the wordless and atmospheric "Veldt" in which they attempted to create an impression of an African landscape using electronic buzzes and drones, Burchill's improvised saxophone lines and Kerr's chants and cries.
The album also generated the single "Changeling". The next album was Empires and Dance , released in September McNeil's keyboards and Forbes' bass became the main melodic elements in the band's sound, with Burchill's heavily processed guitar becoming more of a textural element. With this album, Kerr began to experiment with non-narrative lyrics based on observations he had made as the band travelled across Europe on tour. In , Simple Minds switched record labels from Arista to Virgin.
Peter Gabriel selected Simple Minds as the opening act on several dates of his European tour. Further increasing the band's visibility, the single " Love Song " became an international hit reaching the Top 20 in Canada and Australia , and the instrumental "Theme for Great Cities" proved so enduring a composition that it was later re-recorded in as a B-side to the single "See the Lights".
During this period, the band's visual aesthetic was established, masterminded by Malcolm Garrett 's graphic design company Assorted iMaGes. Characterised at first by hard, bold typography and photo-collage, Garrett's designs for the band later incorporated pop-religious iconography in clean, integrated package designs that befitted the band's idealised image as neo-romantic purveyors of European anthemic pop.
Drummer Brian McGee left the band at the end of the Sons and Fascination sessions, citing exhaustion at Simple Minds' constant touring schedule,  and a desire for more time at home with family. He later joined Propaganda.
He stayed long enough to drum on the band's next single, the disco-friendly "Promised You a Miracle"  based on a funk riff from one of the cassettes he played on the band's tour bus which hit the UK Top 20 and the Australian Top Hyslop "didn't fit in" with the band or their management a situation further strained by his apparent suspicion of record companies and in February he left the band after five months.
The band moved to Townhouse Studios for recording sessions with producer Peter Walsh, who introduced them to a London -born drummer called Mel Gaynor,  a year-old session musician with plenty of experience including a stint drumming for The Nolans and Samson band with Bruce Dickinson.
New Gold Dream 81—82—83—84 was released in September , combining the results of the Walsh sessions along with " Promised You a Miracle ". The album was a commercial breakthrough and generated charting singles including " Glittering Prize " which reached the UK Top 20 and Australian Top Mike Ogletree played on the first leg of the New Gold Dream tour, but left the band immediately afterwards in November to join Fiction Factory. Mel Gaynor was recruited as a full member of the band for the remaining dates.
Simple Minds' first non-Scottish member, Gaynor went on to become the band's longest-standing drummer and member aside from mainstays Burchill and Kerr despite thrice leaving and returning in the following decades. The next record, Sparkle in the Rain , was produced by Steve Lillywhite and released in February Sparkle in the Rain topped the charts in the UK and hit the Top 20 in several other countries including Canada, where it reached No.
The marriage lasted until The song soon became a chart-topper in many other countries around the world. At around this point, the camaraderie that had fuelled Simple Minds began to unravel, and over the next ten years the band's line-up underwent frequent changes. Jim Kerr subsequently recalled "We were knackered. We were desensitized.
The band started to fracture. We were lads who had grown up together, we were meant to grow together, politically, spiritually and artistically. But we were getting tired with each other. There was an element of the chore creeping in. We were coasting and this whole other thing was a challenge. The first casualty was bassist Derek Forbes, who was beginning to squabble with Kerr.
Forbes began failing to turn up for rehearsals, and was dismissed. Forbes remained in touch with the band and soon reunited with another former Simple Minds bandmate, drummer Brian McGee, in Propaganda.
Forbes was replaced by former Brand X bass player John Giblin who owned the band's rehearsal space and was a session musician who had worked with Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush. Simple Minds were the first band to be approached to play the Philadelphia leg of Live Aid.Aug 23, · Provided to YouTube by Universal Music Group And The Band Played On ( Digital Remaster) · Simple Minds Good News From The Next World ℗ .
