it occurs to me now that if duran duran doesn’t absolutely kill it at this miata reveal i’m gonna look pretty dumb1 week ago
fun fact the one time i’ve ever seen duran duran was the year the miata was introduced
big thing was out, which would probably be considered the nadir of their career if anybody, you know, actually thought about duran duran in terms of “a career,” but i kinda liked the singles. still, i went as a goof. i thought it’d be hilarious on the way there to buy a lighter to hoist during save a prayer (i didn’t smoke).
well, joke was on me. duran duran kicked ass. that is a seriously credible rock band. (to give you an idea of who else i was going to see in 1989, the list included dinosaur jr, the pixies, bob mould, and, um, metallica? so it’s not like duran duran was good compared to spandau ballet or some shit.)1 week ago
