Title - 'Dreaming Of Your Cars - 1979 Demos Part 2'
Artist - Duran Duran

For those not in the know, fans of British new wave icons Duran Duran got the treat of a lifetime when Andy Wickett, the original vocalist of the group who was eventually replaced by Simon LeBon, released Girls On Film - 1979 Demo, a collection of early recordings of the band that included keyboardist Nick Rhodes, plus the rhythm section of John and Roger Taylor.

And now a second collection of demos has emerged, offering an even deeper look into the early workings of what would become one of rock music’s most prestigious and productive bands from the ‘80s!

Dreaming Of Your Cars - 1979 Demos Part 2 was officially released on October 30th, 2020 courtesy of Cleopatra Records and features four early DD tracks with Wickett on vocals.

1. 'Dreaming Of Your Cars' (4:00)
2. 'Love Story' (3:18)
3. 'X Disco' (2:46)
4. 'To The Shore' (2:26)

This very interesting flashback to a band that were finding their feet, their identity in the music industry, opens with the title track. A gentle synth and drum hip-pop beat with a breezy Caribbean vibe throughout, even then it had the markings of what would soon become the early Simon LeBon era.

We then get the poppy, foot-tapping melodies and beats of 'Love Song,' a more 'Planet Earth' ambiance found winding its way through 'X Disco' is next, with the EP closing on the aching, yearning guitar work of the synth-laden 'To The Shore.'

Wickett explains, “This is the second demo we did at Bob Lamb’s studio in Moseley, Birmingham. I wrote the song ‘Dreaming Of Your Cars’ with T.V. Eye before I joined the Durans. We were the Durans favourite local band."

"Later, when I supported Duran Duran with my band World Service on their UK tour in 1996, Nick Rhodes told me he loved that song and wanted to produce it.”

Dreaming Of Your Cars - 1979 Demos Part 2 will be available on both CD and colored vinyl as well as on all digital music platforms!
