* * * LINE UP: Alejandro Hernández (Guitar) Fernando Benítez (Drums) also in El Diablo , The Sweet Leaf , La Orquesta de Animales . Victor Jerez Santillán (Bass) also in El Diablo Simio far beyond being a 'jam band' was a spontaneous music experiment (meaning all songs were conceived and played the moment they were recorded, no 'launch pad riffs') from Mexico. They released one CD during their existence (Chaos Vs Order, a 5 part continuous album) and will soon release a new cd (Diestro/Siniestro) of previous recordings as a 3 piece band, and some recordings from their 2 piece era, which had them moving away from heavy rock, into even more experimental areas, touching on post-rock and Middle Eastern music. Recommended for fans of all types of spontaneous art, improvisational and guitar music. -o- SIMIO - Chaos Vs. Order Review by: Rob Wrong (StonerRock.com) Simio is a jam psychedelic improv acid rock band hailing out of Mexico, their sound is classic rock oriented with lots of vintage effects drenched guitars and long jams reminiscent of Pink Floyd`s `Echoes`. The titles on this 5 song CD are simply titled 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and all run into each other, as part of movements for a much bigger picture.

I usually am not too hip on these acid jam bands, but Simio does it tastefully and the players in the group are all top notch sounding veterans that jell very nicely together. If you dig early Hendrix and early 70`s Pink Floyd then you will almost certainly appreciate these cats. The highlights on this CD are the 2nd movement on the appropriately titled `Chaos Vs. Order`. The reason being is the guitar really struts it`s stuff, the bass gets busy and the drums have a slippery feeling to them similar to Keith Moon...just over the top good in that respect.

These guys really know how to bust out the jams, although I am more inclined to believe that some of the songs or movements on this CD have to be somewhat rehearsed...even though some of it is obviously improvisational. Get this one if you like everything from `Nine to the Universe` to `Meddle`... Simio is laying down the improv law on this one, and to think that these guys are from Mexico. Read more on Last.fm.
