Alan Powell Biography

Alan Powell (born in 1948, Manchester, Lancashire, England) is an English drummer who was mainly active during the 1970s.

In 1964 Alan joined Manchester R&B band Ivans Meads who released their first single for EMI label "Sins of a Family" followed in 1965 with "We'll Talk about it Tomorrow". The band split in 1967.

His first notable appearances were with Chicken Shack, appearing on the 1974 live album Goodbye, and Vinegar Joe ("Proud To Be a Honky Woman").[1] He continued his friendship with Robert Palmer from Vinegar Joe co-writing "Gotta Get a Grip on You, Part 2" (from 1976's Some People Can Do What They Like), "The Silver Gun" (from 1983's Pride) and "Life in Detail" (from the soundtrack to 1990's Pretty Woman).

During 1974, he joined Hawkwind as a second drummer, recording two albums, 1975's Warrior on the Edge of Time and 1976's Astounding Sounds, Amazing Music, and contributed to Hawkwind collaborator Michael Moorcock's 1975 album New Worlds Fair. On leaving Hawkwind, he sessioned on Nik Turner's 1978 album Xitintoday.

In 1977, he formed the short lived touring band Kicks with Paul Rudolph (Hawkwind), Steve York (Vinegar Joe) and Cal Batchelor (Quiver), then teamed up with Mick Farren for 1977's "Screwed Up" EP and 1978's Vampires Stole My Lunch Money album. Also in 1978 he formed Tanz Der Youth with The Damned leader Brian James, released the single "I'm Sorry, I'm Sorry"/"Delay", recorded a Peel Session,[2] toured with Black Sabbath and appeared at Turner's 'Bohemian Love-In' event.

At the end of the 1970s he emigrated to San Francisco, and fronted his own new wave band, Jo Allen and the Shapes, releasing the 1980 single "Cryin' Over You"/"Lowlife" and "Shimmy, Shimmy" on the 415 Music compilation album.

During the 1990s he re-united with some of his former Hawkwind colleagues for several North American tours, which resulted in the 1995 live album and video Space Ritual Revisited and a 1996 studio album Past or Future.
