This is a record by Gunslinger, featuring ALan Davey, ex-Hawkwind bassist... ANd well it's a cool record. The production and overall sound is AWFULLY bad, but the songs are pretty fine - somewhere between Hawkwind and Motorhead.

Oh fucking hell, they were in Paris on January 23th... ANd I fucking wasn't there...

now listening to : Del Dettmar (ex Hawkwind keyboardist) / Gerald Toon, Synthesis - Nice piece of spacey analog electronics from the gutter with heavily processed guitar… Can remind of Ashra or Tangerine Dream, but with a distinct lo-fi vibe reminiscent of Chrome or early Legendary Pink Dots. For those who expect swooshing noise and space chaos from Del dettmar’s synth : you’ll be disappointed.

Can be downloaded here : http://mutant-sounds.blogspot.com/2007/04/del-dettmar-with-gerald-toon.html

That's dowloaded, your description really excited me.


Well, not so long ago, I was listening to Motörhead's first album, the white one, can't remember the title (the one with Vibrator and Motorhead and all) Wasn't Motorhead yet, but you can feel it comin through the garage and psyche stuff.

And Pink Fairies' "The Watcher", Goddamnit !!!!!!

Hey Christopher, about the Buzzcocks/Hawkwind connection, here's something to read : http://books.google.fr/books?id=GLyU7PC_z7sC&pg=PA114&lpg=PA114&dq=buzzcocks+hawkwind+influence&source=bl&ots=kCvcSvTOl6&sig=c-5T4NZmru2cJTJx0eRQAcuTvRI&hl=fr&ei=fuK7SaqRKeTCjAev2aCdCA&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=2&ct=result

Aparently Jarvis Cocker is a Hawkwind fan too...

You might ask : who the hell is Steve Swindells ? Well : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Swindells

butbasically he wrote Hawkwind's "Shot Down In The Night", one of my favorite songs ever



Recently I got my hands back on his solo album Fresh Blood (1980), and it's a BRILLIANT piece of english hi-energy rock, between punk, songwriting and space pop, with a distinct eighties feeling...



I guess you imagine what the music sounds like just looking at the picture !!!!!

Hawkwind In Your Area



Another VERY BAD Hawkwind record. Some live stufff with no interest at all, some horrible new-age instrumentals… This record looks like a parody. How deep one can fall…

(don't aske me why I listen to these dreadful records...)

I'm re-discovering "Alman Mulo Band", a side-project led by Harvey Bainbridge... There's some really cool stuff (if you can stan the definite "ambient HW" vibe.)

If you’re into Hawkwind stuff from the Calvert era (75-78, then) and strong enough to listen to bootlegs : I just put my hands onto a cool Hawklords audience-recording from 78… (Hawklords being the name Hawkwind took at this time, contract problems, that kind of stuff). Bob Calvert at its best, backed by a strong rhythm section (Bainbridge + Griffin = power !), a very tight Dave Brock and very efficient synth-lines by the punkish Steve Swindells. The live version of “Psi Power” is far more energetic than the album one, the old songs are coolly played… I love that HW era. OK, it’s poppy, if you compare it to the Space ritual, but I really like that.

High Tide Interesting Times



High Tide is a great band. No, wait a minute. High Tide are great musicians – of the BEST kind – and recorded two ESSENTIAL records. But anything else ranges from mildly uninteresting to absolutely dreadful. This album inclines towards the last. The production is incredibly LOUSY, with that horrid drum machine – what the hell, psychedelic jams with a fucking drum machine ????? – something like Jethro Tull’s Crest Of A Knave, but worse. And the songs are basically average, which means just lazy pieces of prog-folk with some sparks of the good-old heavy psychedelia… Even Simon House’s violin sounds tame.
Get “high tide” (self-titled) and Sea Shanties ; forget this one.

Adrian Wagner - Karming The Elements (very loosely HW related)

Compared to the absolutely awful albums Adrian Wagner tends to record, this one appears as a nice piece of new-agey synth stuff, quite 70’s sounding – think Tangerine Dream on their lighter moments… Lots of “natural” sounds too, and ethnical-type percussions. Nothing new or really interesting, but nice to hear whilst cleaning the room or thinking about the future of the planet. Would be a nice alternative music for “Les mystérieuses cites df’or” ha ha

PostSubject: (psychedelic chaos !!!) Magic Muscle (Hawkwind related, Bevis Frond related)   Fri 12 Jun 2009 - 8:37

FUCK HELL ! I just found a blog where a guy (blessed him be) put all Magic Muscle records, most of em being completely out of reach anywhere else... I just found, through the years, the album "Gulp" which is a perfect piece of english heavy psychedelia. I'm downloading right now anything else, hoping it's half as good as Gulp !!!

http://apoundforabrown.blogspot.com/2009/04/magic-muscle-heres-deal-pipe-roar-grid.html



(this one features Nick Saloman from Bevis Frond, Adrian Shaw from Hawkwind, Simon House from High Tide/Hawkwind/Third Ear Band/Bowie...)

God knows I love Magic Muscle. I mean, for a long time, the only thing I had to love was the “Gulp” album (featuring Nick Saloman), and it’s a VERY lovely record. Pure jamming psychedelia, sometimes ominous and sometimes nicely nonsensic ; every instrument on Gulp seems to be pushed to the limits, especially Simon House’s violin ; the instrumental patterns are mindblowingly intricate without ever falling into the pit of technical demonstration (the bane of progressive music)… Well, that’s a good record !!!! In the vein of the best High Tide or Hawkwind. Then, for years, I thought there were no other Magic Muscle around… Until I put my hands on “One hundred miles below”, a 1988 live record. Oh, what a disappointment. Don’t get me wrong, this is not a bad album ; but it has bot, in any way, the unique feeling of Gulp. Instead, we have straightforward psychedelic rock, song-orientated, featuring, yeah, cool violin parts, but that’s not enough to turn “classic rock” into a real experience. Rod Goodway’s vocals are not really exciting, see what I mean ? When you play “songs”, you gotta be a real songwriter, and have some kind of appeal in the way you sing… This album sadly lacks of both. This could have been counterbalanced by the jamming and soloing parts of the songs, in the good old “here we go, let’s improvise until the sun rises” psychedelic manner ; but most tracks are short, with little space left to spacey parts. Too bad…
Anyway, if you like Simon House’s violin sound, this is a record you should get !

Melodic Energy Commission (featuring Del Dettmar)



After years of seeing this record mentioned without getting any sign of actual existence, I finally got my hands on it ! Thanks god, the fact it has at last been re-released, and, well, internet sharing. Anyway, this is not what I would call an essential, but the involvement of Del Dettmar makes it interesting. Apart from that that, well, it’s nice hippie jamming stuff darkened by some heavy electronics – not really far from classic Gong stuff.

now listening to : Hawkwind – Windsor Festival 1973 (easy to find on torrent sites)

This is a really cool Hawkwind bootleg if you’re into Space ritual era stuff ! Featuring both Michael Moorcock and Robert Calvert on poetry, sometimes at the same time, which is indeed the highlight of this show ; the versions of the usual songs are quite “classic”, but some improvisational stuff here is really good, especially the long instrumental jam driven by Lemmy’s powerful bass.

Harvey Bainbridge – Huw Lloyd Langton – Hostage Release Day live
Far more than just a “cosmic keyboards VS spacey guitar” jam, Harvey and Huw here play real songs, and the songs are good ! OK, we get lots of Ash-Ra-like parts (analog synths and distorted guitar soloing, melting together in a rather unfocused way – anyway, I sure like that too), but ultimately, what we get is Coded Languages, Waiting For Tomorrow, Dreaming City (a very beautiful version of this too rare song) and so on… Seems like both musicians were really born to play together, and any nostalgic of the 80’s Hawkwind sound (I am) must have a listen to that record. Last but not least, the added percussions by Richard Chadwick and Norman Mulo fit perfectly ; a must-have ROIO.

A nice Hawkwind influenced space rock band is Farflung, I saw them live a few months ago, excellent ! rulaiz



I wish Hawkwind still had so big balls today but they really don't (last shows I saw were really boring) but their 70's era is great (I love Space Ritual, their old albums accompanied many trips of mine...)

I never really listened to Farflung, except some compilation tracks, I'll have to check'em out. Personnaly I really like F/I and Vocokesh among the HW-influenced bands...

last time I saw them was 1994, and it was already a bit disappointing... If I have an occasion of seeing them again, well, I won't miss it, but I would'nt cross the country to like I used to do. I'm a HUGE HW fan but yeah, maybe they're too old. THe only recent good thing IMO is the return of Tim Blake.
