Simon Andrew Clark is an English keyboard and synthesizer player best known for working alongside guitarist Bill Nelson in art rock band Be-Bop Deluxe and their synthpop offshoot Red Noise.
One of his earlier involvements in music was as member of a progressive rock band from Sheffield, Yorkshire, called Mother's Pride.
His original involvement with Be Bop Deluxe was as keyboardist for the band's live concerts in 1975. He couldn't work for them in the recording of their second album Futurama, because he was still maintaining contractual relationship with Mother's Pride. Shortly after, he joined, recording with them the next three albums, Sunburst Finish (1976), Modern Music (1977) and Drastic Plastic (1978), before their disbandment.
After his involvement with Bill Nelson, he played on David Bowie's album Scary Monsters (1980), on The dB's' Stands for Decibels (1981) and Repercussion (1982), two tracks on Peter Gabriel's So (1986) and Tears For Fears' The Seeds Of Love (1989).
