Everyday I'm Hustlin'

"We Are Your Friends" beat out Kanye West's big-budget action video at last year's MTV Europe Music Awards. Pretty strange if you bear in mind that Simian's collaboration with Justice dates back to July 2004 when it was released on Gigolo Records!

2006 gave us Simian Mobile Disco's "Hustler", "Tits & Acid" and "I Believe" (on the Kitsune Maison Compilation 3). Saam Farahmand made the "Hustler" video. It's simple, but effective. Or to put it in his own words: "Basically my sister seems to know every horny scenester in London and she managed to collect these girls together quite easily. They're called Girl Core, but my sister calls them the international party crew. They're basically a bunch of Spanish, French and Colombian girls who tour European festivals, take insane amounts of drugs, get off with each other and sprinkle glitter over scared indie kids. We had literally 2 hours to shoot this. The girls got drunk, coked and loved up off their faces." Seeing is believing!

World domination will be completed in 2007 with the release of their debut album on Wichita Recordings. Which will contain the songs mentioned above, and their newest killer tune "It's The Beat" featuring guest star Ninja from UK indie band The Go! Team on vocals.
