Arcadia Biography

Arcadia started out as the second Duran Duran side-project in 1985, with Simon Le Bon on vocals, Nick Rhodes on keyboards and Roger Taylor on drums; the threesome released that same year in October the single "Election Day" featured a narration by Grace Jones, the track shot to #6 on The Billboard Hot 100 and entered the top 10 of the Official British Singles chart.
It was followed by their only album, "So Red The Rose", which hit #23 on The Billboard Top 200 list and found similar chart success on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean; from the album was taken another American Top 40 hit, "Goodbye Is Forever"; shortly afterwards the members of Arcadia re-formed Duran Duran without Andy Taylor.
