Planet Earth Day 2.2.81.
Back in February 2001, Cherry Lipstick celebrated the 20th anniversary of Planet Earth with a special issue. In it, we looked at all things '81, with a Duran timeline from 1978- December 1981 (not easy to find back then, pre-internet and pre-reunion), the first extract from the Simon le Bon diaries and a concert review.
We also mocked up a pretend issue from February 1981, which is re-printed for you here.
Today we mark the 37th anniversary... how time flies. Happy Duraniversary - to the one that really counts.
