  • Hawkwind release

    This came from Starfarer's site:


    29/04/05: Official announcement of Album / Single release dates
    Mission Control has announced that the new single "Spirit Of The Age" will be released on 30/8/2005, with the new album "Take Me To Your Leader" to follow two weeks later on 12/9/2005. They've also confirmed a couple of club dates in Finland at the end of May 2005 and mentioned forthcoming UK dates in mid-December. See for yourself here - and they've confirmed the Dour Festival in Belgium for 15th July 2005 too...

    Seems to be taking it's time coming, but everyone get ready to send them to the top of the charts!!!!!!!!!! :D

    How many singles do you have to sell for a Number One these days - about 5 isn't it? Preorders at Amazon will help. :)

      How cool would it be to have a Hawkwind number one? Maybe then I'd be able to get more of my friends into Hawkwind. One of my friends is a drummer and he just cant believe Ginger Baker played with Hawkwind!

        I remember an interview with Ginger Baker after he "left" Hawkwind alluding to the fact that the world's best drummer had been sacked by the world's worst bass player....
        Does it follow that I reject all authority? Perish the thought. In the matter of boots, I defer to the authority of the boot-maker.

          Famously! But technical proficiency doesn't guarantee an ability to fit into a band - nor does it guarantee good music (Ginger Baker's Air Force anyone? :D )

              Yes... I have a DVD of an interview with Dave Brock where he talks about sacking Ginger Baker because he wanted to get Jack Bruce on bass!

                And never the twain shall meet (except for last night at the albert hall of course)

                It has come to knives between Ginger and Jack Bruce before....:roll:

                Before I even think about thinking about contemplating considering buying another version of Spirit of the age I want to know that the Calvert estate are going to be making money off it.

                Brock and Co make too much off Bobs memory (and they are really toss live these days-what happened to Tim?)

                  You do sort of wonder "why bother?" It's like Hawkwind are becoming their own tribute band. There's also going to be stuff done using tapes of Bob reciting poetry on the album, so the royalties issue is spot on.

                    Well, it would be nice, and I think royalties rights would have to apply (please do not respond, Kruffroodi). More to the point, as the charts are so blatantly riggable these days, it is a chance to return HW to the wider public notice (a la John Otway, oh maybe not, he disappeared again after Bunsen Burner!). I quite like giving Brock my hard-earned sovs anyway, he has done his bit over the years 8O

                      Yeah - and I think HW can still deliver the bacon on stage. I saw them at the Astoria Xmas show and it was ace - albeit a few boring bits. I do seriously think though that Nik's 'Space Ritual' could give them more than a run for their money...

                            Sure am - See you there!

                            We saw the Spacers in Bristol a couple of weeks back - they were brilliant. I'm looking forward to experiencing Bubbledubble too.
