Simon's 'Uptown Festival'

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, June 1977

THE NAME of Simon Soussan is synonymous with the authentic British Northern disco scene/sound. Before joining the "brain drain" and defecting to America (Los Angeles, to be precise), Simon was in the thick of the whole Northern activity that focused on the now defunct Torch and Twisted Wheel clubs.
