Duran Duran Releases Hits Record, John Taylor Makes A Movie

Duran Duran will release a greatest hits package and accompanying video compilation November 3, and has scheduled a short pre-Christmas tour of the U.K. to promote the record. There are currently no plans to tour the States.

The 19 song track listing includes: "Is There Something I Should Know," "The Reflex," "A View To A Kill." "Ordinary World," "Save a Prayer," "Rio," "Hungry Like the Wolf," "Girls on Film," "Planet Earth," "Union of the Snake," "New Moon on Monday," "Wild Boys," "Notorious," "I Don't Want Your Love," "All She Wants Is," "Skin Trade," "Come Undone," "Serious" and "Electric Barbarella."

The band has been in the studio recording their next album, tentatively entitled, 'Hallucinating Elvis', scheduled for release next spring.

Meanwhile, former member John Taylor is reportedly working on a movie this month with director Allison Anders, who's best known for flicks including "Grace of My Heart," "Gas Food Lodging" and "Four Rooms." Details are sketchy but

the film apparently features Taylor as a rock star, and Rosanna Arquette as his wife. Michael Des Barres and former Spandau Ballet singer Martin Kemp are also in the picture. It's expected to make its debut at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival.

Meanwhile, Taylor has a new band called Terroristen, which hosts Taylor on vocals and bass, Gerry Laffy on guitar, Michael Railton on keyboards, Larry Aberman on drums and John Amato on sax and flute. They recently made their record debut with a live EP recorded this summer on Taylor's own B5 label. Like Taylor's two previous releases, the CD is only available through the Internet. B5 will also soon be releasing a record by the band Three Alarm Fire. The website can be found at www.trusttheprocess.com.
