David Lindup Biography (Wikipedia)

David Lindup (10 May 1928 – 7 January 1992) was an English composer, arranger and orchestrator best known for his collaborations with Johnny Dankworth and his library music (often for KPM). Although credited as the composer of TV theme tunes such as The Informer, and occasional film scores such as Games That Lovers Play (1971), White Cargo (1973), Shatter (1974) and The Spiral Staircase (1975), he was also a composer of library music, and his pieces usually appear uncredited in films and TV programmes. These included The Persuaders!, The Box and SpongeBob SquarePants. He is similarly uncredited for his orchestration in musical films such as Scrooge and Goodbye, Mr. Chips. The trailer of filmThe Full Monty credits use of Lindup's composition The Zodiac.[citation needed]

Lindup was born in East Preston, West Sussex. He was married to Nadia Cattouse; their son Mike is the keyboardist for Level 42. Lindup died in Southampton in 1992.
