Simple Minds are sound scapers, sound-shapers, soundtrack makers, serial chart-toppers. They have influenced acts as diverse as the Manic Street Preachers, Primal Scream, Moby and The Horrors. They have been sampled by Nicky Minaj, David Guetta, Joey Negro and Freddy Bastone. They have provided memorable movie music for movies such as L'Affaire Farewell, The Informers, Elizabethtown and, of course, The Breakfast Club. They have topped the British charts half a dozen times, with the studio albums Sparkle In The Rain (1984), Once Upon A Time (1985) and Street Fighting Years as well as theBallad Of The Streets EP (both 1989), the concert recording Live In The City Of Light (1987), and the compilation Glittering Prize 81/92, and returned to the UK Top Ten with Graffiti Soul, their most recent studio album, in 2009.
Named after a lyric – 'So simple minded' to be exact – from David Bowie's seminal 1972 single The Jean Genie, Simple Minds evolved out of Johnny & the Self Abusers, the 'rank and file' punk group Kerr and Burchill had formed in 1977. By the time Saints And Sinners, the sole Abusers single, was issued on Chiswick six months later, Simple Minds, featuring bassist Derek Forbes, drummer Brian McGee and keyboard-player Mick MacNeil, were already moving towards a darker, broodier sound that owed a debt to the Velvet Underground but also the Krautrock of Can, Kraftwerk and Neu!
What has remained a constant, from their early days at the Mars Bar in Glasgow to their most recent run of European dates via headline appearances at Wembley Stadium and Milton Keynes Bowl, is their dedication to live performance.
Simple Minds currently are Jim Kerr, Charlie Burchill, Mel Gaynor, Andy Gillespie and Ged Grimes.

A third wave ska band from U.S.A. ‘’The Toasters’’ which are the oldest ska playing group in America will concert at LABA DABA. The legendary ‘’Barto’’ from St. Petersburg will join them. The group earned support of fans thanks to its lyrics and directness of criticism devoted to the Russian public authorities and the existing political order. Famous German group ‘’Deine Lakaien’’ will give a bit darker tone to LABA DABA with their acoustic piano performance.
German cult band as well as other 60 performers that will be seen at festival are experimenting between different musical genres (folk, techno, industrial, goth, new wave, ambient and rock) - none of them played in a classic performance.
