Singer/songwriter, with guitar and keyboards looking for musicians into new wave, post-punk and indie music. I record under the name Simon's Ghost (see a few demos here: soundcloud/simonsghost/sets/cold-demos). Looking for those looking for both interesting covers and some of my songs. You may also include yours if you write.
I'm a pretty basic musician but can fill in on rythm guitar and keyboards. Looking for people that are more enthusiastic than muso. Probably bass, guitar and female vocals in the first instance.

BreatheA spiky piece of indie guitar rock. File with 'Shine On' by the House of Love or 'Transmission' by Joy Division. Listener reviews: I like the fast start and fast pace of this song. I love the genre! I like the guitar work. I like the soft-spoken vocals. They remind me of Joy Division. interesting and complex. The band reminds me of Deathcab for Cutie This is an outstanding track that features some intense instrumentation and percussion from the opening notes and engages the listener thoroughly due to the depth and feeling that is conveyed The instrumentation was great and very interesting here. The bass was especially good. I get kind of an 80's goth vibe...which is cool really good, avant garde sound has a sorta creepy vibe Has a 1980s/90s vibe. Sounds like a combination of the Talking Heads and the Doors. post punk, nearly gothic, Joy Division, but could be Nick Cave It reminded me of 80s New Wave Lyrics: Just where do I become content? These sins surrounding me. This distraction, a heart-strung reaction Open hands and fractured smiles. Oh, the veils, veils, veils All the time, surrounding me. I'll never be hurt this way again, Ridding myself of niaive content. It's nothing, my feelings Inside. It's something, I've known Inside I could almost hear her breathe You could feel her breath upon you. And so it had to end A ghost, a pill, a forgotten friend. It's just Like Mother said, Read it once then leave again.
EileanListener reviews: I liked the 80's lead in, and feel The lyrics I liked, it reminded me of something Jim Morrison would say I liked the retro synth sound on this, post punk, maybe some Joy Division with Devo thrown in a little menace and perhaps paranoia...great sound! Sounds like a lot of 1980s alt rock influence I hear a David Byrne influence terrific percussion Lyrics I've been called away by my own name In another's tongue, somehow familiar One moment of beauty Looking at land and sea I lost my identity Found stillness within me Unguided by Man but by the distant seas of fate The love of the Earth in this special place But there's so much more to the land when the spirit sees The whole world within me
