Hawkwind

Profile:
Formed in 1969, Hawkwind are a prolific and pioneering space-rock group from the UK. Within weeks of their formation, the band had made a name for themselves on the free festival circuit and would perform live without fee wherever they were able. By the time of their 1971 album 'X In Search Of Space', Hawkwind were infamous for their science fiction themed music and theatrical concerts, the latter renowned as exhibitions of pulsing electronics, dazzling light shows, LSD consumption and (from 1971-75) a nude dancer in the form of Stacia Blake .
Despite a near-constant revolving door of members, Founder member Dave Brock has been the sole mainstay and the core of the band since its inception and has steered the band from its psychedelic rock roots into flirtations with heavy metal, new wave, ambient and techno. Notable contributors have included "accidental" bassist Lemmy (who would go on to greater fame with Motörhead), Cream (2)'s Ginger Baker and science fiction writer Michael Moorcock.

I bought their 1st album after hearing it in HMV in Oxford Street when it was released. Saw them soon after at the Red Lion in Barnet with David Bowie backing them, never been able to prove it though.

Bought the first LP as soon as it came out, and have basically bought everything else, and most 'Friends and Relations', since. My favourite band of all time (just trumping Tangerine Dream and Van Der Graaf Generator, my other favs and must haves), long may they reign, and in what ever form. xxxX Vorrn

One of the great underground bands made good, saw them at imperial college Gower street 1970 I think, then lots of times after, with the lovely buxomed Stacey dancing away great times, and fantastic light show, once seen never forgotten.

Hawkwind are a legendary band and I love their sound/visuals/lyrics and what they represent. Whether the latest band tickle your fancy, it is all personal choice. I have made a lot of good friends at their shows over the last 4 decades, some still intact, some gone and some mad...... and long may the band in any form and us all continue to do what WE want to do.......

Absolutely nothing wrong with the current line-up. Strongest and most 'together' the band have been in decades!
Live performances continue to get better :) Watch out for the re-recorded Space Ritual!

The best UK band from the early '70s imo. The first six albums are virtually faultless. You can hear kosmische vibes in the music... plus the distant, faraway sound of punk rock... still a few years away. Opa-Loka off 'Warrior..." sounds like NEU! (and of course Dave Brock wrote sleevenotes for the 1st NEU! album [they shared the same record label; UA]). Hawkwind gave free music to the people, took a space-rock anthem into the charts and had a truly anarchic 'don't give a f*ck" attitude at a time when most UK 'prog' musicians were taking themselves far too seriously. Plus - they had Lemmy - the Bootsy Collins of space-rock (the albums started to go downhill once Lemmy left). Astounding Sounds indeed.

'Blue Shift' is a beautiful blissful kind of track...I don't go so much for the echoey spoken word vocal stuff that sounds like my old geography teacher taking a trip of a different kind. Fair play for releasing SO MUCH stuff though.
