SIMON CHAINSAW. Australian by birth and firmly rooted in the Aussie Punk meets Rock tradition of Saints, Radio Birdman and early AC/DC. But it doesn’t stop there, Simon draws on brash influences like Social Distortion, Stooges, Pistols, Motorhead & CBGBs style punk mixed with the dirty melody of Husker Du, and the Replacements.
In a nutshell: HIGH ENERGY ROCK'N'ROLL!!
SIMON has spent the last 15 years serving up his unique brand of rock’n’roll, playing and recording all over the world. He has released 5 CDs, a 4 CD box set (material exclusive to the box set, not rehashed), a BEST OF/RETROSPECTIVE - “Eight Times Lucky”, and two 7” Vinyl EP discs.
*This will be SIMON CHAINSAW'S 5th European tour... and in the last few years he has also done yearly or twice yearly tours in Brazil and Argentina plus a jaunt or 2 in Australia.
*In 2014 Simon released his latest album on Vinyl and CD (his 11th album!).
