The band became the standard bearers for a new kind of rock music in the Eighties when they added big choruses and widescreen atmospherics to the art-rock invention of the post-punk era.

So, even in the ‘unplugged’ upswing that followed, when practically every major rock band stripped down their songs and played them acoustically, Simple Minds shied away. They have taken their time in coming up with their first acoustic album, but in 2016, have seen fit to deliver these adeptly realised, stripped-down reworkings.
