Simon is a UK singer-songwriter with an experimental streak. A true music geek, he was exploring the uncharted corners of archive.org
in the early 00s when he stumbled upon something unexpected. In his own words,
"I came across the Snot Patties one day after I typed in the name Jandek in the Internet Archive search box, purely in the hope that I could find a band or singer influenced by the great Texan. I thought I might something interesting, but I never thought I would find something as great as this. The Snot Patties hardly sound like Jandek at all, but they do follow a wonderful tradition of lofi indie folk where gorgeous melodies and intelligent and original lyrics shine through the minimal production like, um, you know, something shiny shining through something else that happens to be a little murky."
Snot Patties became a favorite of his, and on this EP he pays tribute to the little-known group with a hand-picked selection of gems from their four albums.
