US West Coast label, Cleopatra Records are issuing some ‘historic’ unreleased demo recordings from Duran Duran in the pre-Simon Le Bon era, when early frontman Andy Wickett was part of the line-up.

Girls On Film 1979 Demo is effectively a four-track EP which features September ’79 recordings made by Nick Rhodes, John Taylor, Roger Taylor and Wickett (who had replaced Stephen Duffy). The early version of Girls On Film is very recognisable, despite different verse melodies and lyrics, while See Me Repeat Me is an embryonic take on Rio. The are two other songs are called Reincarnation and Working On The Steel. All these pre-date the band signing with EMI, although there isn’t any indication as to where these recordings actually came from.

This EP is being put out on CD and clear coloured vinyl and you can take a listen to the tracks on this page. Girls On Film 1979 Demo is already out in some territories, although will not be released in the UK until 29 April 2016.
