Arcade Fire are indeed behind the "Reflektor" graffiti art campaign that has popped up around the country over the past few weeks. A new banner hanging on a building near the corner of Lafayette and Grand in Manhattan connects the band's name to "Reflektor" for the first time, and advertises something – it's not clear what – that is scheduled to happen at 9 p.m. on September 9th.

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
