Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro describes solo album as "Pet Shop Boys, Math-Rock and Weird"

In an interview with NME Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro has revealed some rather odd descriptions of his solo album under the name of ZZC.

Speaking about his upcoming solo effort he said " ... It’s going to be a lot more conceptual. I’ve got a few really, really cool ideas for it. It’s going to be almost like the Pet Shop Boys. I’m going to be singing like Neil Tennant and my wife Francesca’s going to be like Chris Lowe at the back. She’s going to look like the girl from ‘The Ring’. 


I’m giving this all away now, but I’m going to get projections of people playing instruments and as I move around the stage I’m gonna join in. it’s quite a lot of choreography.. it sounds like it won’t be ready for this year at all! The music gets kind of weird – it’s not mainstream. I’ve got a seven and a half minute masterpiece I call ‘The Myth’ – it’s this neo-classical thing that goes into a little bit of math-rock. I think it’s one of the best pieces of music I’ve ever written. It started as a score for an 
imaginary movie. ... "
