Biography

In September 2006, Simon Moore traveled to LA and recorded his debut album "Twenty Five Hour Day" in Elliott Smith's old studio, New Monkey. Produced by Fritz Michaud (Elliott Smith/Great Northern/Autolux), the album was released in March 2007, and has since enjoyed high rotation on college radio in the US and plays on French, Canadian and Finnish airwaves. The video clip for Simon’s first single "The Army of the Soldier Crabs" has been featured in rotation on Rage, and was a finalist in the inaugural Portable Film Festival.

Since returning to Australia and releasing the album, the band has expanded- now featuring Elliot Willcocks on drums, Quinn Stacpoole on keys/guitar/accordion and May Eshraghi on bass.

Since forming as a solid line-up, Twenty Five Hour Day have had an increasingly hectic 2007, most recently supporting French solo artist Pokett at the East Brunswick Club, and Oh Mercy at Manchester Lane. Now working feverishly on the second album, Twenty Five Hour Day are set to enter the studio for a second time in early 2008.

Cassettes and Casseroles

Written By: Simon Moore

Cassettes & Casseroles

No faster way to wake than ice down the back of my freezing neck
Cold mornings followed by hot days spent sweating out on the deck
Cassette spins mozart while accompanied by the sweet maggie squawk

Your weathered skin has left kind lines, kind lines
You stuck out your hand to help those who struck a hand to you

What's on the cards for dinner this evening let me guess
Your smile gave it away I know it's casserole again

I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here

I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here

Don’t think I can run this race, my lungs won’t hold up again
“Just suck it in and see, you know I’ll catch you when you fall”

Your weathered skin has left kind lines, kind lines
You stuck out your hand to help those who struck a hand to you

The Army Of The Soldier Crabs

Written By: Simon Moore

Pack your bags
We're going for a trip
Son you'll like this land
We can get lost here
And yeah you will see sand
We're heading for the beach
And you'll understand
Why we get out of here

Now I'm fighting a war
With the army of the soldier crabs
And I know that I won't be caught
Cause the tide is out and the general is calling the shots

I'm fighting a war
With the army of the soldier crabs
And I know that I won't be caught
Cause the tide is out and the bases are manned but I couldn't care anyway

Here we land
Washed up on the shore
What will come to hand?
A sparkle in your eye
Let's me know I can
Entertain this dream
Yeah I have a plan
You just wait and see

Now I'm fighting a war
With the army of the soldier crabs
And I know that I won't be caught
Cause the tide is out and the general is calling the shots

I'm fighting a war
With the army of the soldier crabs
And I know that I won't be caught
Cause the tide is out and the bases are manned but I couldn't care anyway
