MUSICIENS SANS FRONTIÉRES is the creation of NYC-based Austrian-born
Thomas Simon - off-off-Broadway rock opera composer, creator of ambient
pieces for indie thrillers as well as for Sesame Street, world music
documentarian ("Thomas Simon:Walkabout" in 5 film festivals) and
alternative-rock guitar hero.
n MSF, Simon is covering the sonic spectrum from the psychedelic, often
tribal alt-rock of LOVE ALIEN (lovealien.net) to the dark yet undeniably
catchy riffs of his off-off broadway musical hit "The Damned"
( " - a rock musical featuring Thomas Simon has made this town take
notice.... a hot ticket not to miss" - Village Voice) sprinkled with the
new age ambient suspense sounds of his film-work.
MUSICIENS SANS FRONTIÉRES is co-fronted by singer-songwriter-actress
Jillie Simon, who "has been garnering rave reviews and probably more than
her share of stalkers..." , said CMJ New Music Report. and has been called
"white light/white heat onstage" by NYC booker and former Rolling Stone
writer Steve Weitzman.
The two had previously founded internationally touring act LOVE ALIEN, of
whom Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Group) had said "it's my new favorite car
artin Johnson wrote: "LOVE THAT FUSION: Their band is like a fusion of
Screaming Trees and Sophie B Hawkins. They have a slightly grungy
psychedelic sound, and Jill has a sensuous stage presence and breathy
vocals that seem to owe a bit to performance art. It's an intriguing and
original sound that is often riveting." - NEWSDAY
