'Showdown' is track 10 on Clive Farrington's solo album 'INDEPENDENCE'.

Like many hunters for perfection, Clive Farrington and Andrew Mann have carried their craft through to today and indeed, they are still writing fresh, contemporary pop songs. Their hit single 'The Promise' is widely received as one of the best pop songs of the 80's. The song was featured in the hit movie Napoleon Dynamite in 2004  Andrew and Clive are still very much a song-writing partnership and joined forces with classically trained film composer, Jon Brooks. 

Jon has a Master's degree in Composition for Film and Television and has worked as a professional composer since 2002. For six years he worked as an In-house Composer/Audio Consultant in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, working on scores for films, television, radio, television commercials, musicals and animation series. He returned to the UK and set up his own recording studio which is based in South Manchester. His clients and credits include: Coca Cola, Cadburys, Disney, Malaysia Airlines, Mars, Pixar, Pepsi, Saatchi & Saatchi and Sony...

Jon plays mainly the Piano and French Horn. At 12, he won first prize in a piano competition where he appeared on stage alongside Richard Clayderman. He has performed at a variety of venues including the Royal Albert Hall, Barbican Hall, Bridgewater Hall, Kuala Lumpur's Twin Towers and at the Vatican, Rome. He also had the privilege of performing for the Queen during her Jubilee Tour.

Group influences are primarily Scott Walker, John Williams, Jaques Brel, Mahler, Righteous Brothers, Hans Zimmer, Dvořák, Francis Lai, Tchaikovsky, Coldplay, Green Gartside (Scritti Politti), John Barry, Bon Jovi and The Blue Nile.
