  • Hello, Everyone!

    Hello, folks. Sorry that this is a nickname (from my Leicester University - Chemistry days in the 80's), rather than my real name, but I'm happy to be here. I've found that even the most "secure" data can sometimes be Googled, much to my chagrin.

    I've been a Moorcock fan since I was lent books by a teacher called Mr Weston at a school in Coningsby, Lincs., and have never looked back. They were the first Corum series (the "Swords" ones), and rather intriguing for a 10 year old - if a little adult, perhaps. I also read the Count Brass series before the Runestaff ones, as my Mum bought them for me: can't remember if she read them, too - she used to read all that kind of thing, but she prefers real history these days.

    I often reread Michael Moorcock's books, as I come across them in used book stores, and it's interesting how the books themselves have changed but little (with the possible exception of the Ice Schooner, perhaps: how many times has that been rewritten?), yet now they evoke different emotions as I get older.

    I love Hawkwind very much, and my favo(u)rite album is the Live Chronicles - I was so glad they put the Michael Moorcock vocals back in for the CD release. Favorite track is still "Moonglum" - just great Huw Lloyd Langton guitar work. Huw's incredibly underrated: rarely going for minor/blues scales (except for deliberate effect, like "Needle Gun"), which makes his stuff very different-sounding, and a bit more of a challenge to emulate. For you musos out there, Google: hawkwind powertabs - for more details.

    Anyway - nice to be here; I sense the average IQ here is a little higher than the average forum.

    'lo.
    Ah Live Chronicles, I remember excitedly finding the C.D in Virgin one Christmas a few years ago, bringing it home, and playing it to my dad who often talked about the time he'd seen Motorhead and Hawkwind in Bridlington, only for him to proclaim 'That's not f*cking Hawkwind'.

    My dad's musical experience appears to have ended circa '77
    I appear to have little experience with anecdotes....

      Welcome UncleDes, you'll certainly find some interesting conversations here, there are plenty who share your love of Hawkwind. I'm quite partial to them myself.

      Why is it I thought of this man when I saw your name?

        Hey Electro and Guvner: I liked the image so much, I nicked it for my avatar....

            Howdy UncleDes ! Sounds like Mr Weston was my sort of teacher. I reckon' your mother would have enjoyed reading your MM books because mine sure did. Good to see you found us.

                    Hi All

                    Hello, and what a great forum. I've just registered after finding the site (I googled "Multiverse" and found my way here).

                    I've been a big MM (& Hawkwind) fan for a long time now.

                    I used to just drink, smoke & ride motorbikes until a mate lent me two books, "The Eternal Champion" and "Behold The Man".

                    Now I just drink, smoke, ride motorbikes & read. Having scanned a few threads and picked up on the possibility of an Elric movie I may even become a cinema go'er.
