The talent behind Radio Silence is an extraordinary man called Alistair Gordon. Alistair was born in Manchester, England and his writing and production talents have not just been confined to his own "artist" recording projects, he has worked with many successful bands, songwriters and film producers in his career to date. Alistair can be heard singing backing vocals on many contemporary Rock and Pop albums, such as Eric Clapton, The Who (Symphonic), Labi Siffre, The Choir Boys and Kevin Kennedy. After recording his debut album with "Scott & Batische" for Polydor he decided to join forces with Richard Darbyshire (Living In A Box) and Gary Tibbs (Ex Adam & The Ants and Roxy Music) in the band "Zu Zu Sharks". They recorded an album for EMI and toured Britain and Europe and attained the
number one single spot in Spain. Alistair has released two solo singles for EMI, UK and has previously signed a solo deal with Atlantic Records in New York. Whilst recording in the States he worked with Mick Jones of "Foreigner" and co-wrote and recorded three songs with Alan Gorrie of the "Average White Band". In recent years Alistair has worked closely with Sad Café and Mike & the Mechanix vocalist Paul Young. Sadly, Paul died very recently, but one of his most recent compositions, "Answer my Prayer"(co-written with Alistair), is to be found on the new Radio Silence album "Sirens Song". Also contributing as co-writers of this song are David G. Hill and Mike Hehir. Earlier in the 90's Alistair was invited by Genesis keyboard superstar Tony Banks to be front man of his new band "Bank Statement" recording and releasing an album on Virgin Records. The album had huge success in Germany and he spent the next year promoting the album via radio interviews, Videos and TV shows in Europe. In the late nineties Alistair has been working with the artist "Newton" and he co-produced much of the material on his album, including the hit single "Sometimes When We Touch". This single was a hit worldwide, reaching No 30 in the UK charts and in Australia achieving gold status, peaking at No 2. That brings us more up to date, the debut album "Radio Silence" (Escape Music ESM 018) has been a huge success and exemplifies Alistair's talents in a major way, both playing and composing. Radio Silence blends pop and rock in a seamless manner, a hybrid of Mike & the Mechanix and Foreigner is a great way to describe the material found on the debut album. In short, a benchmark in pop rock, an album to set the standard for others to follow... it would be difficult to better this unblemished performance, but Alistair has done just that. With production from Heartland's Steve Morris, mixing by Canadian Ray Roper (Stonebolt) and mastering by Craig Wadell, the icing is put onto the cake of an album that deserves to be heard by all.
