That just makes me feel old. And glad I didn't drop $125 to see them at Mountain Winery in 2009. I felt the same way after seeing Pavement last year. Having seen them a ton in the 90's, seeing them mostly going through the motions last year was disappointing.

I'd be down to see them at Coachella but for me they are conflicted out behind PJ/Presets/Kanye and maybe even the National.

It's not like they have gotten better or are still musically relevant. Put in a CD and go to town but that is far as I will take it at this point in my life.

yeah you clearly know wtf you're talking about



All You Need Is Now is the thirteenth studio album by the British pop/rock band Duran Duran.
The album was released on 21 December 2010 digitally on the iTunes Store worldwide...It is the first album by the band that has not been released on a major record label.
The album was produced by the Grammy Award-winning Mark Ronson, best known for his work with Amy Winehouse, Adele, Kaiser Chiefs, and Lily Allen. After the lacklustre performance of the band's previous album, Red Carpet Massacre in 2007, All You Need Is Now is touted as a return-to-roots homage to Duran Duran's most celebrated musical era.
Sales figures have so far been positive, the album debuted in the top two in both the US and UK download charts.

Hold on a second ...

1) As much as I love Squeeze, the Glen Tillbrook movie (One for the Road) is evidence that anything approximating Coachella is long behind them - best we can hope for is Difford and Tillbrook club shows

2) Simple Minds are a great band and had a fantastic live presence - Live In the City of Lights is one of the top five live albums I own - but I think they've failed to maintain relevance and I think their set would be largely lost on the Coachella crowd

3) It's criminal that OMD is absent from the lineup, I was betting on their inclusion this year both because the new record is strong and the Architecture and Morality tours were so well received

All of that said, Duran Duran is absolutely qualified to appear at Coachella based on their body of work which is consistently populated by new wave classics ranging from Planet Earth through to Ordinary World - I'm assuming most are willing to ignore the albums from late 90s and the early part of this century. It's also worth recognizing their influence across contemporary Coachella bands like The Killers, Dandy Warhols (they handpicked Nick to produce Welcome to the Monkey House), Goldfrapp, and now Mark Ronson - to name a few.

Also worth noting that their appearance aligns with Bauhaus, Love and Rockets, Morrissey, Art of Noise, Depeche Mode, The Cure and Prince. Adding Duran Duran is a natural extension of what Coachella has been doing dating back to 1999.

Got to agree with you on Simple Minds. They came down to Singapore about two or three years ago for a festival, and Jim Kerr looked tired and kept going off to the side of the stage to sit down and rest. It was embarrassing and their fans (all two of them) looked crushed.

I've only heard them play an Arcadia song once, at a show in Seattle in '09. However they have lots of new material with the latest album and also with Red Carpet Massacre in '07 so the set list will be pretty full. Can't wait to see them!

Simple Minds stopped being relevant soon after 'Street Fighting Years' which unfortunately was as long ago as 1989. I saw them bomb at Glastonbury in '95 and made the mistake of going to see them in Glasgow in 2001. Looking for a bit of a nostalgia trip I was sorely disappointed. Jim Kerr and his songs had become balding bloated versions of their former selves.

You're having a laugh aren't you? ... Duran Duran's appearance bears no comparison with those listed above. It does however compare with the invitation that was issued to Gary Numan last year. Prince & D-Mode .. I think not.

Agreed - in fact, that's the last record I bought. I'd like to think they had more to give past 1990 but apparently it's a sad fade into the ether for Jim Kerr.

I am not ... I can with a straight face say the words Duran Duran and DM, NO, etc. in the same sentence. And I can produce consistent counts of albums and 12" singles from the old vinyl vault from each of them. While it's true that Duran Duran harnessed a teenage girl frenzy of ridiculousness that was probably only rivaled by DM, I'll stand by my statement that they all belong in the same class even if they gave us dramatically different things.

This message board is only tolerable with the appropriate libation.

I'm not saying that buying a bunch of records delivers reputation, but I am fairly sure Duran Duran and Depeche Mode can be uttered in the same sentence in the eyes of history.

Prince - that's a different story and a different dollar figure.

Gary Numan - totally different conversation all together and probably the greatest volcano related tragedy, although missing Frightened Rabbit and Bad Lieutenant was fairly disappointing as well.

You're a moron if you think these two are in the same league. One is a fun 80's candy pop group that made hit records, and the other is one of the most influential dark synth-pop groups in the world, and has been for 30 years.

DM started off VERY candy pop and really didn't get all Dark and synthy until Alan joined them on CTA. IMHO the past 3 DM albums are shit take away a song or two...unless you like being put to sleep.

I'm not saying Duran is the most important band in the world but I am expecting one hell of a great, fun show not only from them but also the audience being totally into them.

captncrzy
03-01-2011, 11:03 AM
Yeah, until Alan Wilder joined...two years after they formed. It's not like they spent half their career making one type of music and then switched mid-life. They released one catchy candy pop album with Vince Clarke before he left and never really went back to it.

Also, Playing the Angel is one of their best albums....easily in their top five.

Sigur Ros Stache
03-01-2011, 11:32 AM

we all have our opinions and I respectfully disagree.

Top 5 for me
1. Black Celebration
2. Music For The Masses
3. Songs Of Faith and Devotion
4. Some Great Reward
5. Violator

Playing the Angel doesn't nearly hold the power that they once had. If you're wondering I thought Ultra was a GREAT album so yes, they were capable of producing great stuff even without Alan.

Wow, you go from zero to dick in less than two posts. Impressive, maybe we should have an award for that too.

Look, it seems as if the argument is that DM have some sort of inherent qualitative lead over Duran Duran because they're darker and possibly more serious with a subsequently greater influence on the music that followed. I'm not sure I subscribe to either of those positions but most assuredly everyone is entitled to their opinions.

I've probably eroded my credibility with respect to DM, but here's how I'd rate the five best:

1. Music for the Masses
2. Black Celebration
3. Some Great Reward
4. Violator
5. Ultra -largely because of 'Home'

Things I've never really understood include DM live records ... they're a great band live but I don't see much value in listening to a recorded creation of a live experience that pales in comparison to the studio product. As an example, 'Waiting for the Night' turned up loud and through a set of headphones is nearly a religious experience.

The ratio of new to old songs was much higher on this webcast than recent shows, but that makes sense since the album dropped yesterday and it was a worldwide webcast.
The lack of Wild Boys, Save A Prayer and The Reflex made me sad
Come Undone sounded great though. I hope we get a few of those songs at Coachella

I suspect we'll get a lot of the new material but the latter part of the set will hopefully include some old favorites. I really love the new album and I also enjoyed RCM so I'm good with whatever they sing. If they sang Hold Back the Rain or New Religion it would make the whole show for me.

As someone who had to live through all the "Fab Five" BS of the early 80's, these guys were a big turnoff to any self-respecting rocker back in the day. They were really just another in a long line of acts that 11-16 year old girls went nuts over.

From a distance now, I've come to appreciate the music a bit, but it's more nostalgia for those days than appreciation of the quality of the music. Personally, I'd rather see ABC or Human League.

Should have made it out to the Regeneration tour in 09 - Flock of Seagulls, ABC, Human League and Belinda Carlisle playing mostly Go-Go's stuff. ABC was the highlight for sure - they should have headlined instead of Human League.

Duran Duran Delivers the Glitter at Ultra Music Festival 2011 Day One, March 25By S. Pajot, Sat., Mar. 26 2011 @ 10:00AM Comments (2) Categories: Ultra Music Festival, Video

Simon Le Bon woos the Ultra-lites. And their moms.

Guy in gasmask, pointing toward Duran Duran's lead singer Simon Le Bon: "My dad totally hated that dude!"

Girl in smiley face bikini: "What? Him? Why?"

Guy in gasmask: "'Cause my mom really, really, really wanted to fuck him. She was crazy obsessed with that song about a wolf or whatever. It made my dad mental!"

Now in addition to reminding you that Simon Le Bon was once (say 1982 through '88) a Brit sex bomb so potent he could destroy American households via MTV, this dumb little exchange between two 20-ish Ultra attendees is a fairly accurate depiction of how Duran Duran was received by a crowd full of people who weren't even born when "Hungry Like the Wolf" chewed its way through the video charts.

"These guys are, like, my parents' age!"

But that's just the brashness (and brattiness) of youth. Sure, Simon Le Bon is 52 years old. He can still sing, though. And the rest of Duran Duran -- Nick Rhodes, John Taylor, and Roger Taylor -- can still play their parts. These New Wavers haven't been seized by vocal chord paralysis and arthritis just yet.

Scheduling Le Bon and crew right after synth-poppers Erasure made sense. They're from the same era. They're from the same country. And they're both bands from the post-punk UK scene with longstanding (though sorta peripheral) connections to dance music.

So you'd think these factors would swirl together an appropriate audience. But Erasure played a solid set to a scattered and lukewarm crowd. And it was the same deal for Duran Duran. Until ... They played a radio-perfect version of "Hungry Like the Wolf" and all the ravers came alive with instant recognition, semi-ironically flailing their arms and even singing along with Le Bon: "Mouth is alive with juices like wine/And I'm hungry like the wolf."

From that point, the snotty youngsters' sideways slams went silent as Duran Duran orchestrated speedy song sequences -- old to new to old. Le Bon crooned breathy 1993 hit "Ordinary World" and the ravers swayed. "Girl Panic!" off the band's new album All You Need Is Now proved they're still gurus of the glittery four-minute pop cut. And encore, 1981's "Girls on Film," massaged everyone's Ecstasy-engorged nostalgia zone.

Even that guy in the gasmask had shut up. Although, given Le Bon's surging silver wolf sexiness, he might have been staring glassy-eyed at the stage 'cause his skull was being flooded by raw, disturbing images of his mom and Simon doing animalistic things to each other in the middle of the Sri Lankan jungle.

I saw Duran Duran from the 5th row of Live105's BFD in 1995. They were terrible, but then again that was the tour for that crappy cover album they did. Perhaps it stunk because we were too close for an optimum sound mix. You couldn't tell what any song was until the chorus.

Towards the end, someone in the front chucked an empty pizza box on stage, like a frisbee, and hit one of the rappers in the chest. If my memory is correct, that was the last song they sang that night.

Really disappointed they played so much new stuff and disregarded some of their best/most popular songs... I expected it after seeing them at the Fox in Pomona, but their set was about 40 minutes longer at the Fox, so there were a lot more hits jammed in.

I will never understand 55 minute sets for bands like Duran Duran, Faith No More, etc... just move everybody a half hour earlier and get a real set out of a band with enough great songs to make a legitimate greatest hits record.

If that to you is something that is "fun" I'd hate to hear what you think isn't fun.

I think the band is great, but by doing something like that it makes it seem like they are trying too hard to be relevant. It makes them look like they don't have confidence in themselves. They were once the biggest band in the world, they shouldn't have to resort to something like "Pokerface" to get fans to cheer. Play "The Reflex" or "New Moon on Monday" and close your set out with some dignity. Like I said, 59 minutes of the set was great, but the last bit left me disappointed.

When I was a young lad, I had an unreasonable hatred for the song Hungry like a Wolf. Ever since I have hated Duran Duran, including their set at Coachella. I honestly tried to like them, but my deep seeded unreasonable hatred runs too deep... I am sorry.

I had fun. View to a Kill/Bond Medley was the best cheesiest moment of the festival. Fun cheesy though, one of those sets you just smile through the whole way.

I keep thinking to myself, "Did that really happen?". Did we really get to experience Rio live on the polo fields?

Ahhh I know! When Simon was talking about something (cant remember what), I just knew it was going to be Notorious next. I was jumping and singing and dancing so much, got soo exhausted after that song haha.

Salah if you could please continue to deify this set that would be great. I have vain hopes that I will someday stop kicking myself for missing Trentemoller.

dude, Simon wore a chauffeur hat DURING The Chauffeur and then changed into a tux for their James Bond song. What more do I have to say?!?!?

I know. Fucking conflict from hell! I still stand by my decision though. Trentmoller didn't have an added dose of Ana Matronic.

I LOVED the set, the addition of Miss Matronic was EPIC...sadly this was all lost on the crowd. Their fanbase was far to interspersed around those waiting for the The Strokes or Kanye and just holding space. I do feel it was a huge mistake to put them on the mainstage and the Outdoor Theatre (where few hold space and the audience changes frequently) would have been more appropriate...did they still put on an awesome show...YEP!

If I am a fucking hipster for thinking a band of that caliber shouldn't be catering to the dumbfuck masses by covering "Pokerface" then give me some Parliments, a PBR, and some skinny jeans and I'll gladly wear these thick rimmed neon glasses.

They probably just did it because they thought it was funny. Everyone needs to stop getting all vaginaey about it.

Exactly
Duran Duran are a party band and some of what they do may be cheesy but they totally pull it off
