Simon's musical career began with Sheffield post-punks ARTERY before he split to join the nascent PULP, playing on and co-writing the band's 1983 debut album It. Having rejoined Artery he was recruited in 1985 to the newly formed Mission by SISTERS OF MERCY escapees Wayne Hussey and Craig Adams.
Leaving after five years, he began developing his solo career as well as the band MINDFEEL, before moving to the desert of New Mexico for 13 years. It's tracks from this period that form the basis of the EP Moving On.
"Every time I come back to making music I’m reminded why I started doing it in the first place," he says. "This EP has been a long time coming but I'm very pleased with the way it's turned out.”
The 5-track Moving On EP is set for release on 7 September through Correctitude Records. It's available to pre-order here.
