Simon & Milo

Biography

This gets just a little confusing. The Canadian electro-pop duo Prozzäk includes Simon, a unhappy sack and hopeless intimate in the Isle of Man, and his Teutonic pal Milo, a taller, better-looking and much more self-confident bloke from Austria. The U.S. branch of the duo’s Canadian label, Epic Information, released their 1998 debut, Sizzling hot Show, to minimal American reception (though it had been a massive strike in Canada, because of its inventive movies and catchy bubblegum pop music) and offered launching the follow-up, 2000’s Sunday People. When Epic fell the ball on Prozzäk, the Disney-owned imprint Hollywood Information selected them up and released 2002’s Prepared Ready Set Move, a somewhat remixed compilation of monitors from both prior Prozzäk albums. Partly as a means of making a brand new U.S. begin for the duo and partly to appease the manufacturers of the likewise called anti-depressant, Hollywood Information re-christened the duo Simon & Milo because of their American produces (they remain Prozzäk in Canada). In addition they totally redesigned Milo, producing him both even more handsome and much more cartoony. Redesigned? Oh correct, did we talk about that Simon & Milo are in fact cartoon individuals? In real life, Simon & Milo are Jason Levine and Adam McCollum, two people from the Toronto soul-pop music group the Philosopher Kings who got originally developed their ’80s synth pop-obsessed Western alter egos to amuse themselves for the tour bus crossing the Canadian prairies between gigs. Ironically, what got begun like a silly side task quickly eclipsed the Philosopher Kings both commercially and artistically.
