Simon joined diskant after falling on his head from a great height. A diskant legend in his own lifetime Simon has risen up the ranks through a mixture of foolhardiness and wit. When not breaking musical barriers with top pop combo Sunnyvale Noise Sub-element or releasing records in preposterously exciting packaging he relaxes by looking like Steve Albini.

    Simon speaks no lie. I have been criminally sitting on a review of this for a couple of months now.

    it is really great

    I misread the headline as “a good French band” and did a double take.
