“Fine Time” is a song by New Order released in 1988 and the first single from their 1989 album Technique. The B-side “Fine Line” is simply the A-side without Bernard Sumner’s vocals.

On the naming of the track, Stephen Morris said, “my car had been towed away and I had to remind myself to go and pay the fine. I just wrote “Fine Time” on this piece of paper to remind myself to go get it and thought, that’s a good title.”

In the U.K. the single peaked at #11. “Fine Time” was a major club hit in the United States where it reached #2 on the Billboard Dance chart.

The song was recorded in the Mediterranean Studios, Ibiza.

Duran Duran – Do You Believe In Shame? (UK 10″ Limited Edition)

Posted by DjPaulT on 2nd October 2017


BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989

I originally had something else planned for today but after waking to the news of the unconscionable act of terrorism in Las Vegas my plans quickly changed. I wanted to post something to convey the heart break and sadness that so many of us are feeling on this awful day. I don’t have any profound words to say except that I am sending Love & Light to all of those who are suffering.

-Paul

“Do You Believe In Shame?” is a song by Duran Duran. Released on 10 April 1989, it was the third and final single from the Big Thing album.

The song was dedicated to three of the band’s dead friends: record producer Alex Sadkin, artist Andy Warhol and Simon Le Bon’s childhood friend David Miles. Le Bon has since said that “Shame” is the first part of a trilogy of songs written as a tribute to Miles, the other songs being “Ordinary World” and “Out of My Mind”.

The LSD Edit”, a previously promo-only edit of Big Thing album tracks “The Edge Of America” and “Lake Shore Driving” finally had its commercial debut, “LSD” presumably an acronym for “Lake Shore Driving”. The song was renamed “The Krush Brothers LSD Edit” for release on the “Do You Believe In Shame?” single.

“Notorious (Live)”, recorded in Rotterdam, which was previously from the promo-only 12″ EP Duran Goes Dutch ‘Strange Behaviour’ Tour.
