For a while, life was crackers. It was not that he had a particular problem, he says. He remembers quite particularly when things changed: doing promotion in Australia in the late s.
It must be a strange balance for them these days, I say: a band known for innovation, for often being at the forefront of technology, but vividly remembered for posing with feathered hair and pastel suits on a yacht in the Rio video, their success today resting on their 80s popularity. Rhodes smiles beatifically. The way you just avoid it becoming nostalgia is by rearranging things, changing the visuals and the setlist. The band are all far-flung now, with families, side projects, lives that span from Los Angeles to Chelsea.
But they refer to an almost gravitational force that Simon Le Bon, sitting next to John Taylor in hoodie and blue jeans, says LP felt right from his very first audition.
The band started playing the track Sound of Thunder, and he stood up and invented a verse on the spot. But I think I was on my own in that camp and it was a band decision. It is a year since it was recorded, but Taylor notes that in that time, as the world has weathered isolation, upheaval and political protest, the song has acquired new layers of meaning. That would feel tone deaf. This is not to suggest that the new album is without party songs.
The three producers and Coxon help fill the place once occupied by guitarist Andy Taylor none of the Taylors are related. But his departure altered the careful equilibrium of the band: for years, Taylor had offered a musical counterpoint to Rhodes.
It has been strange to see the business adapt to streaming, Rhodes says. It would be another six years before the launch of iTunes. How did it feel to push that button? Did he realise how much it would change? It was like that — trying to stop progress. I wonder if it is strange to be thought of as an 80s band. And it was an exciting landscape for music and for being able to create your own sound.
Everyone had to have their own identity, that was your badge of honour. This was the change they felt as the decade ended, he says, and perhaps, by extension, what we are seeing again now, too.
Rhodes looks waspish. The official music video was created by an Artificial Intelligence A. In a ground-breaking, world first, Huxley is an A. Huxley is a unique dreamer with its own A. Huxley takes the concepts that are rooted in human language and iconic symbolism and translates them into provocative and daring imagery that pushes the boundaries of imagination to create a new form of visual discourse that is quite remarkable. The result is a haunting and memorable music video.
Watch HERE. Rhodes first met Yokota in when he was in Japan making a documentary on post war photography. It feels exactly right for right now. The Sony system brings a new and different dimension to the tracks.
The album will be also be available on colored vinyl. The official album store will offer exclusive vinyl and cassette formats with limited edition signed prints. It lives in the Cloud and is powered by technology that is uniquely based on the structures of the brain, modeling human intelligence and emotional engagement to create art that is in equal parts indefinable, and glorious.
Enigmatic, intriguing and always unpredictable, Huxley explores its boundless subconscious mind with an unprecedented freedom to interpret the world around it like no other artist. Huxley is represented by Collector Productions. All existing tickets will remain valid for September so please keep hold of them.

The dialogue is extraordinary, the movie really is quite amazing.
Emerald has an unusual style, which makes me want to see her film win even more. This is a tough category. I found it a little farcical. NICK: Again, all strong movies in this category. The only thing I would say is that Daniel seemed like the lead actor to me, but he is sure to win for his role as Fred Hampton, one of the leaders of the Black Panther movement.
NICK: This is a spectacular list of actresses. Billie Holiday. Andra brought something new to the role of Billie. It is a complex character to play and she got it right.
It was strange and twisted, and highlighted how prevalent bad behaviour is. She was terrific. She was unbelievable in the part of Ma Rainey, just outstanding. It was difficult role, and her expressions and body language was as much a part of her performance as her words, and that made it a win for me.
I was speechless. Every movement, gesture and glance was heartbreaking. It was hard to get through it in my opinion, so forget Gary Oldman. I liked the remaining four films very much.
It was intellectual. That leaves three. Every one of these movies deserved a nomination. Undoubtedly a great movie, but not my favourite, as I mentioned. It tells Work Song - Ray Brown - Ray Brown All Star Big Band (Vinyl fabulous story.
All the performances, the script, how it kept me interested the entire time, and how it stayed with me afterwards. How will we do? Members of the fan community can listen to the entire audio on duranduranmusic. Here, the band members and some collaborators look back on the album on its tenth anniversary.
I was intimidated to do this video since Duran Duran already had the best videos. What could I do to meet them at Work Song - Ray Brown - Ray Brown All Star Big Band (Vinyl level? Looking back, I believe it is one of my best executed music videos. The whole experience was a highlight of my career.
Though it took a long time to prepare, the project felt spontaneous and was a fun shoot. This video has every single ingredient to make a great music video, style, beauty, fun, and most importantly, a great song. I enjoyed all of the collaborations involved on this video, it was a win for everybody.
It was like a cast reunion for the supermodels, and was an incredible moment in time for all of us LP. Collaborating with the band on the concept was fantastic.
I will never forget the excitement and will always look back at this great moment in time with gratitude. The song itself was a different sound for the band, a much harder edge to it. I wanted it to do something to reflect that, more organic and spontaneous. Initially my idea was no idea, just fly to London and film whatever happens around them. John and I had discussed other memorable band performances that were spontaneous, like The Beatles on the roof at Apple Records, The Rolling Stones on a flatbed truck driving through Manhattan and the Sex Pistols river boat party on the Queens Jubilee.
The band had given me an orchestral piece for the opening and closing of the video. The idea was for them to describe the making of the album in their own words, so I asked Gavin Elder, who shoots all the behind the scenes footage of the band, if I could use the stuff he had made during the making of the record. I also asked Gavin to shoot, along with myself, the performance. Technology was moving really fast then, and cameras were getting better and smaller by the hour. The first high definition pocket sized camera was the Flip.
It was the size of a cell phone and it just had a basic zoom lens, but the quality, for that time, was better than any cell phone. Then we spent a day at the rehearsal space, which the band had art directed themselves with tin foil on the walls. Although we had playback of the track, I wanted the band to play live as well, so I could cut between the two.
After we finished filming the performance, we all jumped in a car and drove to the Tate Modern where I shot them walking along the embankment and in and around the Tate Modern. People were doing double takes, seeing Duran Duran walking along with everyone else. I could never have pulled this off with a traditional video shoot. I spent the next two days individually with each band member. When we finished, we took a walk through beautiful Richmond Park.
For Nick, we went to Brompton Cemetery. When I was with Simon and Nick at the Mark Ronson show, I saw Nick juggling some oranges, and saw how good he was, so I asked him to do that again; Nick reminded me of Oscar Wilde or one of the great English romantic poets like Shelley and Byron from the 19th Century. Last but not least was a trip out to the west country towards Bath to see John. We got up before dawn and walked out into the snow-covered English countryside. I also wanted to tribute the importance of the Duran fans, and the legacy the band have left on a whole new generation of fans.
The band constantly re-invent themselves. My good friend Paul Boyd co-produced the video and edited the short version of the video. When I left a few hours later, the car was still there, with more people surrounding it, and it turned out to be Paris Hilton with a broken- down car! I asked her to jump up and down on the Album), and I have to say she was a great sport. Credit goes out to Anna Patel who edited the extended version and to Paul Boyd who edited the short version.
Six guys jammed into that tiny space made for a kind of creative melting pot. Any and all ideas were welcome. We worked thru writing and recording around 50 to 60 song ideas.
Once we had enough songs put together, we started recording them properly at Eastcote Studios. The days for me were long, but fun. Little did I know that they were to get a lot longer very quickly…. Nick was keen to get started on this, so at the end of the session around 9pm most nightsNick and I Work Song - Ray Brown - Ray Brown All Star Big Band (Vinyl back to Prod 3 on our own and began to work on the song.
During the day I was working with Mark and the rest of the band on the album recording and then working into the early hours of the morning with Nick going to bed when the birds were chirping became a common thing.
It was great to be in the middle of that creation. He would sit just behind me with his Jupiter 8 in between us making sounds and teaching me how he did it. Seems like only a few years ago that we were doing this album. I can remember us all in a room together jamming and bouncing ideas off each other for weeks on end. It was a very old school and democratic process, writing this way, and I think this approach to creating is part of the reason the band still get along so well together.
His attention to detail was quite something. I also have great memories of the world tour that followed to support the album. Canongate Books. London: Visible Ink Press.
