Hello, and welcome to durancroatia fan website. It's been a wild run since I was first introduced to them by the age of seven by my elder sister.

Times have changed and so did my perception for the band, which lead me to become a massive Duran Duran collector in the 90's. Here is just a small previev of my ride with the boys which really cannot be described by pictures and videos.It's all in the heart that's real and that made my life richer and better while riding it through their music.

The music between us!

BEAUTIFUL COLORS- The Posters Of Duran Duran
thumbpic
thumbpic

Beautiful Colors is a book examining Duran Duran’s career as it has never been seen before — through the posters.
From 1978 up to the present day, the band’s evolution is chronicled with rare and vintage promotional posters
from the largest Duran Duran archive in the world; tours, tribulations, and triumphs are charted as each
album is released, viewed through an array of stunning art and photography.

Highlights in the book include posters from Duran Duran’s formative years,
previously unseen posters that were never put into production, insights
from artists and designers on their creations, and a foreword
by Duran Duran’s own Nick Rhodes.

 

Andrew Golub has been a devoted fan of Duran Duran for over three decades.
Known to Pacific Northwest radio stations as “Durandy,” Andrew has always strived to take
his passion to a higher plane. His archive of band memorabilia houses an assortment of rare artifacts
and paper ephemera that numbers in the thousands, including carefully restored posters and prints from every
chapter of Duran Duran's history. Selections from Andrew’s archive have been showcased in the Rock & Roll
Hall of Fame and Museum, on A & E’s Biography television program, in two film documentaries, and in
two public exhibitions. Andrew and his collection have been featured in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer,
Seattle Sound, The Stranger, City Arts, Paste Magazine, and he has been spotlighted on Seattle’s
television program, Evening Magazine. Much of the poster collection and other
memorabilia can be seen on Andrew’s website, Durandy.com.

Hi there! We are electronic music producers Koishii & Hush. Work is nearly complete on our debut album 'Odyssey' and our first single is 'C'est Tout Est Noir' is now available. This track features John Taylor of Duran Duran, and the response thus far has been fantastic.

So much so, that a great many have requested this track be released on CD. In order to do this though it requires funding. Graphics, mastering, manufacturing, packing and shipping are all a part of delivering a top quality product for you the pledger.

Limited Edition CD
We will produce a fully manufactured cd limited to just 500 copies. In addition, of these 500 we are offering a very limited 20 copies that will be signed by Koishii & Hush and John Taylor.

The disc will feature the Original Mix and 7 other remixes, including a special 'cd only remix' that will not be available digitally!

If we don't reach our goal of $1,550, sadly we will not be able to produce the cds. So please, help us get to our goal. We've put a lot of time and effort into this project and we'll be pretty bummed if we can't get you this very limited cd that you deserve.
