A double bill this week – Simple Minds and The Pretenders, recorded in concert on September 8, 1979 by BBC Radio 1.
Two bands relatively early-on in their careers. Simple Minds just getting ready to release their second (then-as yet unnamed) album, and The Pretenders, having released their first single, getting ready to release their first album.
Still at the ground floor for two bands who went on to make hugely popular names for themselves and still works-in-progress.
History of the exciting sort.
