THE BEGINNING 1979

"Demo 1979" The History Behind Demo 1979: Andy Wickett rehearsed with Duran Duran and Vision Collision in his room at Cheapside while Steven Duffy's band 'The Hawks' rehearsed downstairs in the veranda. One night he wrote the melody to 'Girls on Film'. He found a lyric in his book: "girls in film they look better, girls in film always smile". John Taylor suggested that he change it to girls 'on' film. Andy told Nick Rhodes to introduce the song by playing the melody on his string machine and the song was born. They recorded the song along with: See me repeat me, Reincarnation, and Working the Steel as part of their first demo at Bob Lamb's studio in Moseley. Nick's dad took Nick and Nigel to see the London record companies. Andy phoned Nick from the factory and was overjoyed to hear that EMI and A&M loved his voice and would sign the band if they could produce more songs like Girls on Film. However Andy left the band for personal reasons. The album was recorded before John Taylor made a full transition to bass and before members Andy Taylor and Simon Le Bon joined the band.
