About Sidewinder Management

Sidewinder Management Ltd is an Artist management company with twenty years solid experience in managing a broad selection of bands and artists. Taking care of the business side is what we do, including the planning of live performances and tours, negotiating record and publishing deals and recording and promotion through various media, but we like to think we also provide moral support, career development and maybe even a little bit of friendship as well.

We have been managing bands since 1987, when the company was called Cinepop Management Ltd, and since that time our clients have included; Westworld, Transvision Vamp, Peter Murphy, The Candyskins, The Dylans, Grayson Hugh, Die Cheerleader, Jam and Spoon, La Bouche, Maxx, Paul Carrack, Made in London, Naimee Coleman, Radiator, Moa, Tony Mortimer, Emma Shaplin, Fun Lovin' Criminals, Belinda Carlisle, The Human League and many others.

Sidewinder Management is owned and run by Simon Watson who has been in the music industry since his sixteenth birthday sometime in the mid seventeenth century, first as a FOH sound engineer then as a production or tour manager and finally as a manager, and so far the pact with Satan appears to be holding
