A take on the music-video of the same name set during the height of the Prohibition Era featuring the boys as characters one is the fresh-face partner to renowned G-Man Elliot Ness, the other two are up-and coming members of AL "Scarface' Capone's Mafia Family all gathered together for a night of drinking and dining.On the same evening The FBI and the police stage a daring raid.30 years on, Simon Price revisits the undeclared war between Arcadia, who made "the most pretentious album ever", and The Power Station, who made "the most cocainey album ever"; and asks who, if anyone, was the winner "Arcadia and The Power Station", writes Saint Etienne's Bob Stanley in Yeah Yeah Yeah: The Story Of Pop, "were possibly the two worst bands of the decade.So much huff and puff." Critical hindsight hasn't been kind to Duran Duran's two splinter groups.Founding Duran Duran keyboardist Nick Rhodes will be absent during a string of dates on the band’s summer tour, but they assure fans his exit from the lineup is only temporary. leg of their tour, which kicked off last night in Nashville.“Regrettably, keyboardist Nick Rhodes will be leaving the current Duran Duran tour tomorrow for a short period of time, to return to the UK to attend to an urgent family matter,” reads group’s press release. They are currently in Chicago, where they play two nights at the Ravinia Pavilion (Friday July 7 and Saturday July 8).” As their statement goes on to explain, Duran Duran have drafted singer/songwriter/producer MNDR to stand in for Rhodes while he’s away.If Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes and the Taylors (Andy, John and Roger) comprised a New Aristocracy, then Arcadia and The Power Station were their grand follies, each set up in stark opposition to the other.

One snow-filled day a mysterious man changes everything. Vampire, non-band AU For the rest of his life, John would recall every detail of that night with a stunning amount of clarity, right down to the the way the scent of his friend’s cologne filled his nostrils as he pulled him closer.
Steve takes things like personal responsibility and respect seriously.
Tony's got people he pays to take care of that kind of thing, and anyway, he's pretty sure that he's going to die of some exotic disease in his workshop, because Dummy's still a little spotty about what is 'clean' enough to put on an open wound.
Suddenly it was OK to be rich, famous and feel no shame. I think Arcadia has stood the test of time better, maybe.
