The Simonsound newsletter – Nov 2010-10-22
GRAB YOUR 3D GLASSES AND LOOK INTO THE FUTURE - then read our newsletter!
Hello Earthlings! We have lots of exciting Simonsound news to tell you about but first of all we’d like to say thank you to everyone that has supported The Simonsound by buying the album, writing about it and spreading the word. We really appreciate it.
Apart from a successful first live show at the legendary Pizza Express Jazz Club in Soho, things have been a little quiet of late, but behind the scenes there has been much fevered activity. We’ve been busy preparing our new live show (see below) working on a Simonsound track for the new DJ Format album, remixing a track for Laura J Martin as well as writing new material.
We have now got high quality hand screen printed Simonsound tee shirts in stock, featuring the album artwork by Emily Macaulay. Printed on high quality Fruit of the Loom tee-shirts, these are much more than your average band tee! Go to our website to order or pick one up at one of our shows (see below).
It’s 1984 on Mars – Free download
Fans of classic electro prepare for a treat.
At the start of the year we created a medley of It’s Just Begun and Tour de Mars, travelling in the time machine from the late 60’s Switched On sound to the 80’s drum machine era and mixing a selection of our favourite electro beats. The medley was originally created for our appearance on Gilles Petersons BBC Radio 1 show earlier this year and we are now making it available as a free download, with super futuristic 3D artwork by Mr. Krum at Cold Rock Stuff. Get it here.

Call it an early Christmas present and a way of celebrating our new live show! Which brings us nicely on to…..
We’ve got a few live shows planned over the next month and more to come next year. Featuring the super cosmic mix of synthesiser, space echo, tape loops, Debbie Clare on vocals and Laura J Martin on vocals, Flute and Mandolin; the addition of spaced out visual projections will be enough to blow the mind of even the most cosmic of space cadets anywhere in this Galaxy.
