STRANGLED MINDS ANYONE?
Unlikely as it may seem, SIMPLE MINDS and THE STRANGLERS have collaborated on a version of the latter’s classic ‘(Get A) Grip (On Yourself)’ ahead of their joint tour next month.
It was recorded at Battersea Park Studios in July and features Jim Kerr, Charlie Burchill and Mel Gaynor from Simple Minds and Dave Greenfield, Jean-Jacques Burnel and Baz Warne from The Stranglers.
The single is available to download from today, and is available as a limited edition white vinyl 7″ from 6 November. Pre-order here.
As previously announced, both bands play the following dates….
Thu 26th O2 Arena, London
Fri 27th Leeds First Direct Arena
