Whenever I hear Simple Minds, I think of the movie The Breakfast Club I think this groups best CD release was their live version. It was a powerful performance while they were at the peak of their careers. How many of you knew this was a Scottish band? Yeah, they were.

Jim, Charlie and the boys are the "best" from Glasgow. Saw them so many times and still love them even now 35 years on! Sanctify Yourself!

Despite its success, Alive and Kicking has not endured as well as Don't You Forget About Me.
