Still everyone should watch this. Fantastic band. So good everytime I've seen them and the music has managed to sound both ahead of it's time and slightly dated (the sci-fi thing).
Some of the best shows I've seen have been by Hawkwind.
that big reunion/anniversary all-nighter at brixton academy that all the band hated but I thought was utterly brilliant, even though Sam Fox slightly ruined some of the songs?
Space cadets one and all. Huw Lloyd Langton's missus looked the worst IMO.
I think early Hawkwind definitely sounded better. And that's not just cos Matthew Wright liked the later stuff.
Sam Fox was KILLING IT!
that Matthew Wright sings on?
It's a re-recording of Spirit of the Age. Shockingly, it's not as good as the older version.
The Alien4 album from the mid 90s was really good i thought, and Take Me To Your Leader from a couple of years ago was too (even if it's got the Matthew Wright moment on it) but yes the early stuff with Brock, Calvert and Turner is best.
The Michael Moorcock Chronicles of the Black Sword has some really good stuff as well.
and Psychedelic Warlords for me.
In fact, pretty much everything up to about 1978 was spot on for me.
But no! I've only really heard the stuff from the documentary but it sounded dead good. These guys must have been listening to them
if you don't own anything by them already
I might see if somewhere in 'the toon' has it cheap today
Serves me right for going out
