You may not be familiar with Alan Hawkshaw but he has one of those names that you've read on countless album covers or single labels as arranger, writer or keyboard player and this is not surprising as Alan has played on approximately 7, recording sessions! Alan has also enjoyed a fruitful association with the doyen of science fiction writers, Arthur C. Clarke, composing for successive series of Arthur C. Clarke's Mysterious Universe. His library track Chicken Man was first famously utilised as the theme for Give Us A Clue and has since been sampled excessively. Another of Alan's longstanding musical associates is drummer, composer and Shadows' member, Brian Bennett, and Alan's unique and percussive Hammond organ style features heavily on A Change of Direction and The Illustrated London Noise - the albums Brian recorded under his own name for EMI in the late '60s.
