Duran Duran - Live At The Hamersmith Odeon November 16. 1982
Oh boy, how I did hate Duran Duran back in those days. I was a hip-hop kid as most of my readers and friends here know. You could not get further from hip-hop and in 1982 than these young lads. It took a few years for me to be able to admit that they had more substance than style but it was only a matter of time. They were all very solid musicians and the songwriting was catchy and superb. Although I told no one at the time, I kind of liked the early singles - it was just something I had to keep to myself for fear of being clowned. Looking back on their career now it is full of great songs and performances and I applaud them. (Sound of DaddyRich clapping). This is an earlier show from the Rio tour and surprisingly the sound os top notch as well as the performance. So, put on some eye shadow and leg warmers and start doing that dance.
