Australian by birth and firmly rooted in the Aussie "Punk meets Rock" tradition of Saints, Radio Birdman, Rose Tattoo and early AC/DC. But it doesn't stop there, Simon draws on brash influences like Social Distortion, Stooges, Pistols, Motorhead & CBGBs style punk mixed with the dirty melody of Husker Du, Replacements, & Foo Fighers. SIMON has spent the last 10 years serving up his unique brand of rock'n'roll, playing and recording all over the world. He has released 4 solo CDs and a 4 CD box set (of different material). All culminating in last years best of/retrospective release EIGHT TIMES LUCKY and the tours all that supported the release. 2010 was a great year for SIMON CHAINSAW. He toured in Brazil, Europe, Argentina and Australia!
