Simon Lister is a singer-songwriter, solo artist and every member of the band Shackled Mule. He is known for his earlier work with the bands The Climbhouse and Dead Clowns. He plays several musical instruments; generally with his hands, sometimes with his feet, sometimes both. He uses words to make the sounds that come out of his mouth. He uses pens to put things on paper in order to remember them. Most of what he says is a lie, some is fiction, the rest is made up. He likes hats, coffee and cats; not necessarily in that order. He is generally closer than he appears.
