what happened next
Simple Minds It wasn't long before Simple Minds were filling stadiums having a huge success in the US in 1985 with Don't You Forget About Me. They continue to be successful. MacNeil surprisingly departed the band in 1990. Kerr and Burchill have been the core of Simple Minds from the beginning and in 2008 they toured the UK arenas on Simple Minds' 30th anniversary tour. In 2012 they toured the UK performing from their first five albums and still play big venues

Hey! Elastica  were no relation to the Elastica hitmakers of the 1990s.
