Simo Soo is the solo project of Simo from Call The Medic, Call the Nurse!!, who were one of the more interesting Sydney punk bands of recent years due to their creative use of unusual instrumentation such as melodicas, clarinets, organs, etc.
This project sees Simo singing and playing guitar and keyboards along to pre-programmed iPod backing tracks. The songs are in an electro/dance/punk style and are really a lot of fun. He has a talent for reinterpreting other peoples music, having covered the likes of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Teenage Jesus And The Jerks.
His latest release Gore Grind Is The Way Of The Future is available for free download, it features 11 varied tracks of noisy good time party punk, with lots of wild vocals, high tempo distorted beats and glitchy videogame electronics, even an Operator Please cover.
The download also comes with a selection of bonus remixes by Emergency! Emergency!, Catinabox, The Carnage Visors & Troon Lienad. The hipsters will be eating this up in no time.
