Shindig! fave Simon Love returns with a new EP. Here’s the debut for the accompanying video
Following his recent LP It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time, Simon Love returns with his new EP “Tennis Fan” out on July 1st at simonlove.bandcamp.com as well as iTunes, Spotify and all those places.
Formerly of bubblegum-garage John Peel favourites, The Loves, Simon’s recent offerings have drawn decade-spanning comparisons from Adam Green and Father John Misty to a “potty-mouthed Macca”, Elliott Smith, early Todd Rundgren, early Elton John and The Kinks.
In his own words…”Tennis Fan use vague tennis terms to detail the end of a relationship, packing in power ballad drums, a triple-tracked guitar solo and an amazing crescendo from A Little Orchestra (London mini-orchestra-to-rent). At live shows there’ll be tennis balls with download codes attached…they’re just as pointless as cassette tapes”

28th July- London, The Haunt, Indietracks Warm-Up with Witching Waves
29th July- Indietracks Festival, Derbyshire

What Is Shindig! Magazine?
A publication put together with genuine understanding, sincerity and utter belief. We seek to end mediocrity in music magazines… to bring the scope and knowledge of old fanzines and specialist rock titles to a larger readership: quality journalism, columns, music and film history; exciting new bands and culture. From the most far-out ’60s sounds through country-rock and folk to soul and electronic experimentation. It’s all there.
