Now there's a well dressed man. I do like the suit jacket/no shirt look, Simon- you might just be starting a new trend here.

Cheers,

Hehheh, you do look like you were getting ready to smash up the place as effectively as Arnold in those movies.

But I have to agree with Anne-Marie. Not that I'm shallow but I like to see bands well-dressed on stage.

Hey Simon - rock and roll!

Nice pics and vid of you and the guys down at Bray yesterday -lunch first was it then?!?!?! Where did you eat?

Bray's only 3 miles or so from me so I'm tempted to come down but that would make me look like an obsessed freaky type of fan so I shan't but if you boys want to come over for a lunchtime barbie or something just ask!!

Wish me luck as well - gig on Temple Island in Henley tomorrow night - played there year and the boat nearly sank hauling us and the gear over to the Island!!

Have fun

E.L.,
I think the right look just enhances the sound. It's part of the overall package. Great sound, great eye candy- what more can you ask for? ;)

Hi Si,
I heard you terminated an amp in rehearsal!
You're supposed to wait until the tour STARTS to do those pyrotechincal tricks!
hee hee
Very cool shot. I like the new look (she says for the 80th time).
Peace, love and butterups,

Simon:

That picture says a lot. Just all the equipment is boggling my brain. Is that an acoustic amp to your left (rightside of photo)?

Great photo, Simon. We are looking forward to all the coming events. I've seen you play with the WHO in 2004, and also on Rachel's ATTIC.

Really heartfelt work you do, just like I also tell Mikey. Your stuff is truly energized, even the songs that are not the faster ones...all are energized from deep inside.

Peace,

Hi Simon, great to see you're posting again. Love your performances on ITA, and looking forward to seeing you with Casbah Club when you come to the States. I miss seeing you perform solo at Grape Street Pub and Mercury Lounge. Those were some hot shows! But ITA live is an excellent substitute. Cheers!

Ooh! What a nice surprise! I didn't know you've been posting again! You do look like quite a handsome terminator in this picture, I must say!

Can't wait for Hyde Park! ♥

Simon,

It's like Christmas all over the place! Another Bruce, an album, lots of EXCELLENT pictures and videos. Wheehee!

I had a listen to Vibrate, I really like it. New site is REALLY well done... give the web designer a bonus! (Looks good, easy to navigate, important information is easiest to get to)

Please tell me you are open to doing some small venues during the North American tour (other than with the Who). You're brother's band is cute and all, :p but Who tickets are a wee bit posh. There is so much energy in your band, I'd love to see it live.

Are you distributing the album any other way than the website? Who do I phone/email/harass to get you radio play?

You look fabulous, as one would expect! (What else can we safely remove from this suit? ... hee hee hee)

Jack

Just put a few pics from CC NEC gig up on my blog - not the best pics by a long shout but they should give an idea of how the show was staged

Hi Simon,
How you doing?

Hey Jim,
I think the title "The Simonator" is great! I've saved this picture and I'm going to make that the title for it.

12:10 AM  
Blogger Jim Laughlan said...

Oh yeah...

That pic just makes you look like you struck a ear shattering power chord surrounded by all those cables. You should sell that pic to Laney so they can use it for their advertising.

Hi Si! What a nice surprise to see you back blogging! FANTASTIC Photos! You know I just thought of you today when I was playing my iPod and had a friend listen in with me and your Vibrate song came on. She loved it and wants to see the concert with me.

I see the harem of women are back Purring up the Simon tree again! LOL..rock on ladies!

hi steveH - we ate in the resataurant.

Hi Jack - not sure we'll get time to do our own club shows around U.S Who dates.... we'll see. Album will be distributed by a label, yet to be confirmed.

I feel great Metalchick! Have a good summer ahead, loads to look forward to.... played in The Who last night and it was awesome AND I love fronting Casbah Club.

Great to see you all here, especially the girls.... Please hang out more often.

Cheers, Si x

Greetings Si,

Looking forward to seeing you guys play in Leeds next week, it'll be a hot one! Any new tunes in the Casbah set?

All the best for the forthcoming shows, you're gonna go down great mate.

Will the album be on sale in Leeds?

Paul

PS How'd you get on with those McNabb CDs??

4:45 PM  
Blogger Sarah Beth said...

I too hope you get to do some Casbah Club shows around NYC when you come over here, that would be much fun!

So good to see you blogging again. You've been missed! ♥

9:33 PM  
Blogger SimonT said...

Paul - there may be one new song in the CC set - we are working on it and may be recording it when we're up in Manchester later this month. The album is only going to be available to buy online at our website. See ya in Leeds!

Blogger BallerinaGurl said...

So as one of "the girls" do we get special treatment to singed CD's? I am sure I speak for all of us here lol.

Yeah! I'm with ballerinagurl, we should get something special for hanging around here.

Blogger ginab said...

Here's a direct question Simon;-): will the Casbah Club open for the Who in Barcelona?

And then I wonder, how on earth?

And then I remember that you are, as sworn by Bob, the Terminator.

Blogger lryicsgrl said...

Hi Si,
Good question, gina has. You have said that you aren't sure what if any US dates you will play with Casbah Club...but what about on the European leg of tour??

As always I wish you much fun out there...and as always, I wish I could see a show before the fall;(

Hasta la vista, baby!!!

1:36 PM  
Blogger SimonT said...

Casbah Club are doing most of the European shows with The Who. Gonna be GREAT!

Blogger Alecia said...

Some of the new fans may not have seen this yet and in keeping with the theme... what began out of practicality (a hot muggy night in NY) may have now set a precedent - Pete smashed up guitars... Simon takes off his clothes! People will be asking - yeah I heard it was a great show but did he take his jacket off? :0)

Press me if you dare!

Hey Simon!

Are you rehearsing with the Who or CC this week? Or both?

Also, can you make sure that Mark has some time off in August? =)

Rehearsing with The Who this week and Casbah Club on Friday. Casbah are recording in August if all goes to plan.

Good luck for the weekend Si - going to be great. I'll be watching you guys in Leeds on the web on Sat and be there in person on SUnday night in Brighton. It's gonna be like Quadrophenia (well sort of!!!). Give me that shout if you can!! (he he).

Anyway good luck and have fun - got a gig of mine on Friday night in the City for 500 pissed bankers!!!

Take care

Can't wait to hear the new stuff from Casbah Club. You'll have an album/EP out in the fall?

3:05 PM  
Blogger Luis Adolfo said...

Simon

Are you goin to be able to sing a Who song on the live WHO setlist? How about The Dirty Jobs from Quadrophenia? Can you persuade Pete not to play Drowned but instead Goin Mobile? He has to remember that The Who 70s and 80 s fans bought the albums not the singles. When are your cds Moving Target and Sweet Sound be released on cds? IT IS ABOUT TIME
The best of luck in this new tour...you deserve it. Hope to see you in Madrid or Barcelona. I will fly from Panama to Spain to see the bands play. Hope Roger will preseve his voice in good condition...since the tour dates are continous........not a day to rest!!!!!!!!!!!

Rehersals with The Who on ITA sounded great Simon! What a treat to preview a few of the new songs. Feww! that's a lot of new material to learn all at once. Not too many would be able to pull it off... but then you are The Simonator!!!

Sending lots of good mojo music vibes to ya, CC and The Who!

Blogger SeekingSanctuary said...

Great show today Si....Especially good to see you in the rehearsal videos. Everything sounded fantastic. REALLY hoping for a stop in Denver when you guys get over to the U.S.

I'm pretty sure I NEED a t-shirt like the one you wore today. Very simple, yet very powerful. I've looked on Pete's sites....are there any available anywhere?

Looking forward to regular updates from all when the tour gets in full swing. I'm really excited for you guys!!

Have fun and stay safe...

Simon, are you sure your going to be able to handle 2 bands at one time? Don't you think your burning both ends of the candle?

Just curious.

8:12 PM  
Blogger Metalchick said...

Hi Simon,
I saw you on ITA today and you were very incredible! I loved your performance too!

Are you really going to play with both Casbah club & The Who? That is going to be a lot of work.

Take care.
