Mystery man behind mix

This autumn, Simple Minds and Ultravox will take their early 80s synth pomp rock on a joint tour of the United Kingdom. Intriguingly, word reaches of us of a mix of a track from both bands - a collision of Simple Minds' 'The American' and Ultravox's 'Dancing With Tears In My Eyes' - created by an unknown dance producer. Intriguing - listen below. What did we used to call these things ten years ago again?

Simple Minds have a greatest hits LP out now, and you can see the joint tour dates below, tickets here.


27th - Hydro, Glasgow
28th - Arena, Manchester
29th - NIA, Birmingham
30th - O2, London
