Arnold ("Burn It Up"). These hits were all featured on their debut album "Anywayawanna".

Prior to her number 7 UK hit "Hey DJ I Can't Dance (To That Music You're Playing)" with Beatmasters, she was a vocalist for She Rockers and Hit 'N' Run. Her (mostly self-produced) debut solo album, "Boomania", spawned two further top ten hits. Boo won the 1991 Brit Award for Best Pop Artist and signed to WEA International Inc.. But this second, major label, album was not a sales success, and a world tour was cancelled when it was revealed she was lip-synching her live vocals. Alison Clarkson returned to the industry in 1997 as a songwriter. She co-wrote "Pure and Simple" for Hear'Say - the fastest selling single in the history of the UK charts, and has also written for Girls Aloud.
