ROUGH TRADE RECORDS
“Lee Simeone is a wunderkind multi-instrumentalist who specializes in dark wave electro. Described as 'like Mozart with synths' one track from his debut album was recently used as an installation at
the Tate Modern gallery”

FUTURE MUSIC MAGAZINE
Issue: Summer 2007
“A huge sound, could be something special here!”

TUBAL CAIN
“A swathe of synth-apocryphal genius. There are no more saints and martyrs... their memory burns in the roaring shadows of Simeone's dark wave aftermath of the war on Modernism... Behold an unquestioned answer to the confused eulogy of pop. Worship or be damned”

[Re-issued] The Dream Weaver was to be Lee Simeone's debut release & went on to win rave reviews namely from Rough Trade branded him a "wunderkind instrumentalist". Released in the autumn of 2008 & conceived in an artists space belonging to The Mad Professor a few months earlier. These were really vibey sessions! I remember Neil (Mad Professor - a lovely man & king of the space echo!) poking his head round my door whilst in the middle of a synth solo on my beaten up Prophet Five; he was like "man you creating all these sounds by yourself?!" He really was a great source of inspiration for my work at the time. I was not only recording! I would be busy fixing broken down synthesizers to make ends meet; almost in between every song line! There are a lot of analog machines on this record as well as digital - it's a bit like "analog meets digital". I wanted the album to have a very dark theme which resulted in the track 'Today Is Yesterday' & turned out to be my debut at professionally self-producing; written on drums (my first instrument) & one of those broken down synthi's! It's become a live favorite. A Return To Darkness (again from The Dream Weaver) went with a painting exhibited by Tate Modern in the autumn of 2007. My roots go back to my school days where my teacher use to play a lot of ambient music so I was always around those elements; and they really entered my psyche.
