SIMPLE MINDS - PLEASANTLY DISTURBED : GLASGOW & EDINBURGH 1978
In 1978, Laurie Evans was the in-house music photographer for the Edinburgh "what’s on" magazine City Lynx. As such, Laurie was on hand to capture some of the earliest images of Simple Minds at various gigs at Glasgow’s Mars Bar and the Astoria in Edinburgh’s Abbeyhill.
Laurie has opened her archive to us and we’ve collected these images together for the first time and produced a beautiful little photobook that features many previously unseen images of the band from those early days. “Pleasantly Disturbed” (HA031) will be released on February 28th (same day as the band open their 2020 World Tour). There will be 250 copies of the first edition and you can pre-order your copy to be mailed out on day of release here.
