Derek Forbes and The Dark

Simple Minds fans shouldn’t need an introduction to Derek Forbes. From 1978 – 1985, Derek Forbes was part of the creative force that propelled Simple Minds to the pinnacle of their music career, establishing their place in music history as one of Scotland’s most successful bands.

Forbes’ bass lines pushed Simple Minds through the boundaries of their experimental post-punk / new wave early albums, onto the dance floor, and more importantly, the charts with hits like: Promised You A Miracle, New Gold Dream, Someone Somewhere In Summertime, Speed Your Love To Me, Glittering Prize, Love Song and Waterfront.

“That writing period has always been considered our ‘golden’ era,” says Forbes. The songs have really stood the test of time, and the fans still refer to those early records as their favorites. I certainly never tire of playing them!

“We’re bringing the songs everyone loves from those first Simple Minds albums to 2020 with a new atmosphere, a new dynamic …”
