I suppose you could say that I’ve made my peace with Duran Duran down the years. If two parties hang around long enough, they tend to develop a shared history that overrides whatever ideological history they might have.

When I was a kid and I was ideological about these matters, Duran Duran were twits on yachts. In their heyday they wore pastel suits and made cheesy videos and girls screamed wherever they went and that was enough for me to dismiss them.
