Additional information about this Duran Duran vinyl art.

Duran Duran – The Artist

Duran Duran are an English new wave and synthpop band formed in Birmingham in 1978. The band grew from alternative sensations in 1982 to mainstream pop stars by 1984. The group was formed by keyboardist Nick Rhodes and bass guitarist John Taylor, with the later addition of drummer Roger Taylor, and after numerous personnel changes, guitarist Andy Taylor and lead singer Simon Le Bon. These five members featured the most commercially successful line-up. The band achieved 14 singles in the top 10 of the UK Singles Chart and 21 in the Billboard Hot 100, and have sold over 100 million records worldwide.

My Own Way – The Song

‘My Own Way’ is the fourth single by Duran Duran, originally released as a single on 16 November 1981.
The single was designed as a stop-gap release to capitalise on the Top 5 success of the band’s previous single, “Girls on Film”, but prior to the recording and release of the band’s second album Rio (which was recorded in the early months of 1982). “My Own Way” was another hit, peaking at #14 on the UK Singles Chart. The video for “My Own Way” was set to the fast-paced single version of the song and featured a young Adrian Paul dressed like a matador. 

The Bull – The Shape

This record has been modelled into a BUll as used in bullfighting. A bull is an intact (i.e., not castrated) adult male of the species Bos taurus (cow). More muscular and aggressive than the females of the same species (i.e. cows proper), bulls have long been an important symbol in many religions, including for sacrifices. These animals play a significant role in beef ranching, dairy farming, and a variety of sporting and cultural activities, including bullfighting and bull riding.

A bullfighter (or matador) is a performer in the activity of bullfighting. The main performer and leader of the entourage in a bullfight, and who finally kills the bull, is addressed as maestro (master), or with the formal title matador de toros (killer of bulls). The other bullfighters in the entourage are called subalternos and their suits are embroidered in silver as opposed to the matador’s gold. They include the picadores, rejoneadores, and banderilleros.
