Simon Wolstencroft is a musician from Manchestermarker, Englandmarker, best known for playing drums with The Fall between June 1986 and August 1997.

Wolstencroft was a member of an early incarnation of Stone Roses; having previously been a member of The Weeds and The Colourfield. He was also drummer for Freak Party which featured Johnny Marr and Andy Rourke. In Songs That Saved Your Life, Marr states that Wolstencroft declined to join what became The Smiths as he didn't like Morrissey's voice.

Wolstencroft joined The Fall in time to play on most of the group's Bend Sinister album (on which he was credited as John' S. Woolstencroft), and remained in the band for over a decade, occasionally adding keyboards and programming to his role as well as co-writing the group's only self-penned Top 40 single, "Free Range", taken from their Code: Selfish album. He left the band following a dispute over the recording of the Levitate album (as related by Steve Hanley in "Hip Priest" by Simon Ford, Quartet Books 2003). He went on to reunite with Stone Roses singer Ian Brown, performing and co-writing on his Golden Greats album in 2000.

Wolstencroft formed a new band Intermittent Signal in 2007. He is now working with a new album coming out under the name of Spudgun.
