No, it is the self same Del Rio.  You see, it's all part of the
carefully planned "random access myth" of _Imaginos_.  Whilst
time-hopping during the _Imaginos_ recording sessions, Al stumbled on

Pressurehed), he decided to pay a sly homage to the list by going back
and penning a song with an obscure, almost undetectable Hawkwind
reference in it (trying also, at the same time, to bridge the
Hawkwind/Nikwind schism).
