Lost Nobility were formed by Simon Duffy in 2010.
Simon is one time bassist of the cult punk rock group ‘Ultra-Violent’ signed to Riot City records in 1982 where they released ‘Crime for Revenge’. ‘’The punk movement was where music really started for me; it was a whole mindset with music attached. It meant you were not the same as everyone else; you had a different way of thinking and approaching life.’’ Ultra Violent can be also be found on a few compilation albums from Riot City and on other Punk compilation albums released in America over the years including ‘Death by Hardcore’ – A speed metal album! Although there was always a crossover in this direction with the Punk movement.
Simon went on to form the band ‘Sure’ working with Tony Swain, composer and producer (Spandau Ballet/Imagination/Kate Wilde) in an effort to land that elusive record deal.
‘Lost Nobility’ is Simon’s latest project culminating in the release of the album ‘Destination Nowhere’ in May 2011. Quickly followed by the second album ‘Century’ in November 2011.
‘’I still firmly believe that if you can play 3 chords then ‘Go for it’ music is an expression, play what you want, how you want, don’t hold back – Make it happen.’’
