Simon's Ghost


Chris Smillie was born in Canada but raised in Scotland Currently he lives in Egypt. He has been writing songs forever under a few different names but the one he always come back to is 'Simon's Ghost'. The name is derived from a particularly good track by the Factory Records band, Crispy Ambulance from the album, The Plateau Phase. The original incarnation was formed in the final years of High School in Paisley with some friends - none of whom could play a note. Read more on Last.fm

Indeed, Chris ended up playing all the instruments in their first recording session, despite never having picked up an electric guitar before. The first album, A Sea of Stars, is mostly played on an early Casiotone with some distorted guitar. Again, Chris plays all the instruments. The music can be compared to maybe the Trembling Blue Stars, Thom Yorke or New Order but played by early Band of Holy Joy or Casiotone for the Painfully Alone. It's recorded on an old four-track, although recordings using sequencers, up-to-date keyboards and digital recording techniques are available, although when and if they see the light of day is unknown. The album is available currently from http://myspace.com/chrissmillie/ at a meltdown price.
