I never really noticed Simple Kid when he was active, (maybe I was put off by the trucker's cap he always seemed to be hiding under), and now it seems he has sold all his music making toys and kit and retired from "The Biz".
But he did at least leave us all with something to remember him by in the form of a "lost demo" which was picked up by Mister Marc Riley and played out on his 6music show. The response was good and in turn the good people at Static Caravan Recordings had their arms twisted to put it out into the wider public domain.
So, here it is, The Road: sounding like simultaneously listening to a life-instruction tape whilst playing a Death Race 2000-style game on the Commodore 64. Which, in case you were wondering, is a good thing.
You can download The Road by Simple Kid from Static Caravan Recordings.
And maybe, if the response is good, Simple Kid might unlock the cupboard where he keeps his "lost album" and share that with the world too.
