Roxy Music, Japan, … but never a Simple Minds fan … except for a handful of tracks, e.g. This earth that you walk upon (instrumental)“, “League of nations” & “Theme for great cities(3x 1981) and I travel(1980) – all recently reissued on the X56cd box (2012).

pete shelley’s zx spectrum

Bit dated, no? Most of all, I’ve forever been curious for those ZX Spectrum computer graphics “which displayed in time with the music” of Pete Shelley’s “XL1” lp (1983) … Didn’t find anything on YT but did find a few screenshots via the links below … not very encouraging. Oh well. Below is the first track I heard by Shelley (beyond Buzzcocks) … to me it’s still his best solo work – “Witness the change” (coproduced by Martin Rushent, 1981).
