2022 release. Following on from his 2018 album Sincerely, S. Love x, Tapete Records are proud to present Simon Love's Love, Sex and Death etc. The 12 songs, written between 2017 and 2019 mostly, were recorded in two batches in July and November 2020 after being rehearsed for 6 months with the initial plan of recording them as live as possible all together in one room. Swinging from love songs ("Me And You" and "I Will Always Love You Anyway") to hate songs ("The Fuck-Up" and "I Love Everybody In The Whole Wide World (Except You)") through all points in-between, the centerpiece of the album is the nigh on 7-minute long pop epic "L-O-T-H-A-R-I-O" The non-musical influences for this record include his wife, his son ("Au Revoir My Dude" written as a guide to life of sorts), the venal Conservative government ("I Will Dance" and "You're On Your Own"), ex-girlfriends ("North Road") and his inability to pick up on signals ("Yvonne") whereas musically Simon was aiming for (but not always hitting directly) Nick Lowe, Kevin Ayers, Silver Jews, Ween and all the Kinks between 1971 and 1975.
