The International Love Corporation is a project formed by former Out of My Hair front man and songwriter Comfort aka Simon Eugene. A roaming collective of musicians that gather together wherever they find an opportunity to do so, the ILC concept started originally as a club in London that itself had its roots in an art led project ‘Western Power Trip’. The ILC has a fundamental philosophy at its roots as the search to find meaning in the common concepts of what love really is and how we relate the understandings in our treatment of each other as people of this world.
Songwriter Simon Eugene aka Comfort formed Out of my Hair in the early 90’s when, signed to RCA Records, they had a number of close shaves with the charts, including best known tracks In the Groove Again and Mr Jones. The band built up a loyal following before problems with the label ran the project into the ground. Simon continued to perform as Comfort, then retired from music, then came back to form the International Love Corporation. A prolific writer, he then diverged into film soundtracks, experimental art projects (Western Power Trip) but with so much unreleased material and with some different projects, decided to reform OOMH as a vehicle for his most favourite style of psychedelic pop/folk. Simon also performs solo, still as the ILC with a new album out soon. He is also in heavy demand as a producer and writer for other artists.
