“Live, ‘Former Utopia’ is like Smog on Holiday in Shellac….double scary and uniformly astounding!” DIS.
5.00 Simon breed: Gentle London based dog head wearing giant, whose slow songs unfurl and lick your face beautifully-like music made by a guy in a dog’s head playing slow music and not actually licking you.
“Melodically beautiful, lyrically barbed." TIME OUT
"Like Jeff Buckley with tourette's." NME. www.myspace.com/simonbreed
