Simon formed his first band – avant-garde performance art rock outfit PS in 1979, joining forces with guitarist Patrick Coghlan. A critcally acclaimed album ‘PS: Surrealism’  followed as did several years on the road playing at pubs, clubs and the art college circuit. His eclectic taste has seen him work as a lyricist across many genres including indie rock, pop, blues, country, jazz, ambient, musical theatre and lo-fi experimental.
