Hawkwind
31. Oct 2005 at 06:10
 
I treated my husband, sister and brother-in-law Mike to the Chicago PT 10/11 show and at one point in the show Mike turned to me and said "this reminds me of Hawkwind!" (apparently he was really into early Hawkwind late 60's early 70's)  Well, number one, I had never heard of Hawkwind and second, I don't remember what PT song it was when he said that!  (BTW, I am a recent PT fan -since August - and my concert mates didn't know PT at all except for a few listens of IA and Deadwing)
 
I am interested in checking out Hawkwind.  Any idea what PT song might be considered Hawkwind-esque?  I know there are some people (including PT at times?) who don't like the Floyd, et al comparisons, but I am intrigued about this band Hawkwind.  I don't know how I grew up in the 60's and 70's and never heard of them  Shocked
 
All music had this entry  
http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll and Space Ritual appears to be their tour-de-force.
 
Any comments about this band/PTconnection?

Hi, Laura - glad to see the interest in one of my favorite bands!
 
Hawkwind is considered to be one of the premier "Space Rock" bands - if they didn't out-and-out invent the genre, they are certainly the best known and longest running band in this area.  They have been playing, in one incarnation or another, since 1969, with almost 100 albums to their credit (including live LPs and various antholgies/collections/rarities/offshoots).
 
I got into them through Space Ritual in 1973, and still consider it to be their finest work - absolutely fantastic from start to finish.  I would highly recommend it as a first buy, if you're looking to get the best introduction.
 
I can't say which, if any, of the PT catalogue sounds anything like Hawkwind, though.  Some parts of some songs, like the spacy part of "Gravity Eyelids", for instance, could call them to mind.
 
You could start here for some current band info:
 
http://www.hawkwind.com/hw_x.htm
 
And there's a good discography / some history here:

Hope this helps, and good hunting!

sorry for the bad link above - here is the right one:
http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:q69ds34ba3mg~T1
also...I just noticed that Hawkwind's Space Ritual is on Wilson's playlist on the PT website
http://www.porcupinetree.com/background.playlists.cfm
 
I think I am going to start with Space Ritual myself - it sounds like something I would like - have others heard this?

I'm quite a fan of Hawkwind as well, though I wouldn't say there's much comparison in the two styles of music. However if you listen to Fadeaway closely followed by the Hawkwind track High Rise (from the 1979 album PXR5) there is more than a passing similarity... (well IMO anyway Wink )

Leo -  
Thanks for the input!  I think your post crossed with my second post on this subject - where I said I would start with Space Ritual.  Looking forward to it!  I have to be honest though - I'm kind of overwhelmed with music at the moment Tongue (in a good way)  First, my friend Dale turned me on to PT recently so I am absorbing all of that *great* music (have 5 recordings so far), then he loaned me a bunch of CD's he thought I would like including Gentle Giant, Anglagard, and Spock's Beard.  And then....there is Opeth - now that is a lot to absorb (also in a good way Smiley!  Well, it is a blast to be back into music again after a long dry spell.

Uhhhh...  Maybe early PT, like some tracks from OTSOL might sound a bit Hawkwind-ish.  They are a bit of a space rock band, but I don't really see (hear) how anyone could see them live today and say they sound like Hawkwind.   ?? Maybe.    
 
But I do like Hawkwind.  My favourite, of course, is the Live Chronicles/Chronicles of the Black Sword.  That's because I'm huge into Michael Moorcock and the whole Elric story.  SR is good, too.  Doremi Fasol Latido, QS&C and Levitation are all very good too.  
 
Wiki has a pretty decent write up:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawkwind
 
I did a cool interview with Dave Brock once.  The video is cool, you can almost make him out through all the pot smoke.  They had this wacked out singer at the time who was sitting in the back of the room, but was making all these Wooop, wooop  noises.  Classic!  Grin

* Clarification - I don't think PT in general/the live show reminded my brother-in-law of Hawkwind - I think it was a part of a particular song(s?) (and I don't remember which one it was now unfortunately). I guess that is not so important anyway. I'm just glad that now I have another new-old band to explore Wink
It was just so funny because at the show he said Hawkwind and I was saying what? whaaat? Huh? What-wind? Hawk-who? It was loud in there Grin And then, he's like - oh yeah - I have tons of their albums. I've known Mike since the 70's and never heard him mention this band. Interesting how seeing PT brought it back for him somehow in some way.

thanks for the recommendations!

A great introduction to Hawkwind is the Epoch Eclipse 30th Anniversary triple CD box set.
 
http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00008OP0V/qid=1130893110
 
 
I'd pick pretty much the same tracks myself for a 3CD best of.  
 
On the subject of sounding like PT: During the band's Charisma period (76-79) when Bob Calvert was at the helm they did some much more innovative, lyrically complex and clean sounding songs (vergeing on New Wave at times) and it's these that sound a little PTesque.

Barney Bubbles Memorial Concert
  
The 229 Club, 229 Great Portland Street, London, W1W 5PN Sunday 29th November, 2009 from 2 – 10pm
 
On 14th November 1983, the art and music worlds lost one of their most important and innovative figures with the death of the legendary graphic designer Barney Bubbles. His work as Hawkwind’s cover artist and stage-set creator established him as key figure in the Ladbroke Grove/Notting Hill counter-culture scene, whilst his subsequent work with Stiff Records (including his designs for Elvis Costello’s album covers and his fractured Kandinsky-esque cover painting for The Damned’s Music For Pleasure LP) established his relevance to the punk/new-wave generation. He directed the seminal video for The Specials’ ‘Ghost Town’ single, worked as art director at Friends magazine and was an early champion of Pennie Smith, who was to become one of rock’s most lauded photographers.
 
“...one of the most important graphic artists of his time.” Will Birch, ‘No Sleep ‘Till Canvey Island – The British Pub Rock Scene’.
 
Barney Bubbles’ long-time friend and admirer, former Hawkwind saxophonist Nik Turner, has been instrumental in organising this memorial concert celebrating the life and achievements of this most singular of multi-media artists, with a view to setting up a foundation/annual award for innovative album cover design, and a memorial plaque for him...  
 
Headliners THE HAWKLORDS, featuring Adrian Shaw, Alan Davey, Harvey Bainbridge, Jerry Richards, Martin Griffin, Nik Turner, Ron Tree, Steve Swindells and Terry Ollis will perform Hawkwind’s 1973 stage extravaganza, Space Ritual, up-dated to 2009, supported by The New Bubblettes dancers and lighting designs inspired by Liquid Len & The Lensmen.  
 
The day’s extensive line-up also features key 70s Notting Hill band QUINTESSENCE, The Damned founder-member Brian James, fronting his own BRIAN JAMES GANG, Nik Turner’s INNER CITY UNIT and the band created by Barney Bubbles, THE IMPERIAL POMPADOURS.  
 
Pentameters Players will perform their acclaimed staging of ROBERT CALVERT’s play, ‘The Stars That Play With Laughing Sam’s Dice’.
 
Also appearing during this memorial concert: JERRY FITZGERALD/LOL COXHILL’S ‘FRE-EX, TRIKIMIKI’S ‘3-D SPACE-WARP’, and D.J. JEFF DEXTER
 
“Barney was, as far as media direction of the youth of this country, probably the most important artist of our generation.” Douglas Smith, interviewed by Jonathon Green, ‘Days In the Life: Voices From The English Underground’.

Okay... Silver Machine and Flow Motion are hardly among the high points of Hawkwind & CAN's respective back catalogues. A quick glance through shows up a bunch more suspect choices, and then most of the artists are from major labels... it smacks of a "tunes that we could pick out of a selection of artists distributed by some vast media empire but which are available at little to no cost" sort of compilation CD. On the plus side, it doesn't have "Pictures of Matchstick Men" by The Status Quo, which must make it one of the first broadly psych compilation out of Britain not to. That was probably two pence.

In this message...  Here is an updated version of the posting we made earlier today, with some additional text detail and the Cover Art for the pending release of 'Hawkwind at the BBC-1972 Double Disc Set...
 
HAWKWIND: HAWKWIND AT THE BBC-1972 (2CD - Mono+Stereo Mixes & Sessions - Stock # T1281594) 2CD £13.99
Legendary space-rock outfit Hawkwind have maintained an extremely loyal fan base and amassed 14 Top-40 albums throughout the 5 decades they've been active. Their re-issues continue to sell well, with the last 'live' album re-issued on EMI - 2007's 'Space Ritual' - selling 5k units OTC to date.
'Hawkwind At The BBC-1972' captures the band just after the surprise of the UK no. 3 hit single in July with the classic: 'Silver Machine', and before their 'live' experience: 'Space Ritual' which was recorded on tour later that same year.
Whilst the bulk of this Double CD release is made up of the 'live' set recorded for the BBC In Concert programme, it opens with a previously unreleased session recorded for Johnnie Walker featuring a shortened version of the 'Doremi Fasol Latido' album classic: 'Brainstorm' and a version of the then hit single: 'Silver Machine', featuring Lemmy on vocals, as per the single.  
The In Concert itself, a hypnotic continuous performance, is presented in both MONO and STEREO versions. The Mono version was previously released by Windsong on CD in 1991 and has now been Remastered and Re-Indexed to include all of the pieces originally performed, and the concert itself in its entirety.
The Stereo version has long been in the domain of the bootleggers as an off-air recording known the as "Broadcast" version. This mix was in fact distributed by the BBC for broadcast internationally and features an edited: 'Brainstorm', missing approximately 4 minutes from the front of the song, a shorter: 'Welcome To The Future' and 'Electronic No. 1' (not indexed on the previous CD release), but a longer 'Countdown' introduction. Officially released for the first time, apart from being in Stereo, the sound quality is superior to the Mono version and the mix is generally more exciting.
Whilst the CD racks and on-line listings are full of unofficial and poor Hawkwind 'live' recordings, this set is a prime chunk of space rock from the band at the peak of their powers and is an essential addition to the band's huge discography.

01.    Brainstorm [Mono - Johnnie Walker Radio 1 session] * Previously Unreleased *

I am suprised that I missed this thread  Oh well Better late than Never.
 
Anyway to give you some quick info I have been into Hawkwind since the early 70's when they ACTUALLY use to play them on FM radio back in the day here in NY.
 
Hawkwind was one of the 1st true Space rock bands if you want to put any kind of label on them and they are just as famous not only for the dozens of musicians who have played with the band but for all the dozens of bootleg copies of their music  and that ranges from very good to total crap on the bootlegs also the numerous record labels they use to belong to.
 
As for what to get from them well with all the music they have put out Like you said Start with Space ritual and just take it from there.
 
To me their best albums besides EPOCH ECLISPE, Which is their 30th anniversary compilation I would get  another complilation, Stasis, Hall of the mountain Grill, Warrior on the edge of time, Quark,strangeness and charm,PXR5, get the off shoot of the group The Hawklords their album 25 years on.( very rare) (that's where I got my screen name) Friends and relations,  Levitation. Cool

Hawkwind at the BBC

Looks to be an EMI release. The stereo version of this show has only ever been available as a bootleg recording of the radio broadcast. I have the mono version on Windsong as 'Radio 1 Live In Concert'. This will be worth having. I'd possibly even say essential, but Space Ritual still beats it. Next best thing though.

Hawkwind - Shot Down In The Night - Live Uk 1979 - 2LP
 
 
Is a Russian bootleg. No idea what the quality is, but there have been some rough 1979 vinyl boots in the past. I'll wait until somebody comments on the mailing lists about it. The front cover is hilarious - that's not a hawk, that's an eagle.

Just to square the circle here Sentinel off the new Hawkwind album Blood of The Earth sounds  uncannily like Stars Die in places.

Thanks so much for posting this! My day just got so much better, not because I'm a Hawkwind fan, but because this gig has had the added effect of making something else very important to me much more possible. Smiley

Hope u can go, I caught them on the UK tour pre Xmas and they were great; superb set list, great lightshow and brilliant dancers on stage.
Can't wait till they tour again.

Hi
The real classic era is between 71 and 80 beyond which it is a case of some interesting stuff but gradually diminishing returns although the last  two studio albums are ok Take Me to Your Leader (2005) And Blood of the Earth (2010).
Sorry Krys we disagree on the Chronicles era they are ok IMO but marred by grim 80's production and 80's metal influences I much prefer the rough hewn early 70's output with the like of Nik Turner and Simon House adding a lot of light and shade to the music, not forgetting Lemmy and Bob Calvert.
Anyway the key albums
In Search of Space -  1971
Do Re Mei - 1972
Space Ritual- 1973
Hall of the Mountain Grill- 1974
Warrior at the Edge of Time - 1975
Astounding Sounds Amazing Music - 1976
Quark Strangeness and Charm - 1977
Hawklords 25 Years On - 1978
PXR5 - 1979
Levitation - 1980 this was the last great Hawkwind album in my view after that songwriting and production values diminish and there is an overreliance on covering their older songs.
There is some good stuff post 1980 but what I am trying to say is they are less consistent.
The Atomhenge reissue campaign is a good place to start.
All the best
Joolio
