Can you say Freaktrog show? Laughing

Anybody here into these guys? Very tripped out psychedelic prog rock resplendent with spacey ambient noise, poetic narratives, saxophonics, an ever changing lineup and Lemmy's presence on bass for a season!

I'm spinning the live double album Space Ritual right now.




Anybody else? GEEN!

Resplendent. There's a vocab word. I can use big words too, you know. Not budging

Contemptible. Infallible. Anticlimactic. Notwithstanding. Yeswithstanding. Ultrawithstanding. Not budging

Hawkwind? I haven't listened to these guys in forever! They've got an impossible amount of discography but I've got a few of them kickin around the collection. Space Ritual is the best I've heard so far.


Equivocal. Conglomerate. Confabulate. Equidistant .... mumble grumble mumble hmpf...

These guys really got bagged on by the music press back in the day (but so did Sabbath). It's good to see the truth win out after several decades in both cases.
Space Ritual I never get sick of...and Doremi has many of the same songs in studio. Classics. I like some of their late 70's stuff (Quark Strangeness, Levitation) with Ginger Baker, etc. It's punkier & proggier than their classic stuff, but very fun to listen to. Reefer Madness is a rockin' and hilarious song.

Finally got a copy of it(Silver Machine),now it is permanently stuck in there,curious though, a question for their faithful,is it a drug reference ?

What other songs or albums by them can you recommend that have a similiar driving kinda hard rockin sound,only thing I have in the vault is Warrior On The Edge of Time.

Kinda like the "spacey" sound ,any heavier purveyors of the sound you can recommend for the uninitiated.........

Not that I'm aware of, although reading Lemmy's account of his days in the band, I wouldn't doubt it at all! Laughing I read a sci-fi story that Michael Moorcock wrote around the members called Time of the Hawklords in which he theband members as superhuman type beings, and the Silver Machines in the story were actual space/time travel types of craft. I believe the song predated the story, but Moorcock was also a huge fan and collaborator with them, so maybe the spacecraft thing is accurate to the original content of the song.

The five albums that preceeded Warrior are all from the classic era of the band and are all awesome to my ears:

1971 - Hawkwind (kinda folksy)
1972 - In Search of Space (very spacey, one of my two faves)
1973 - Doremi Fasol Latido (also very spacey, my other fave - feat. Lemmy)
1974 - Space Ritual Live (very spacey, classic double live set - feat. Lemmy)
1975 - Hall of the Mountain Grill (can't help but be spacey - it's Hawkwind! - feat. Lemmy)
1976 - Warrior on the Edge of Time (which you already know is awesome! - feat. Lemmy, his last album with them)

I need to check out Ozzric Tentacles myself...this isn't the first time I['ve heard them recommended. I would also check out UFO's second album Flying. It's quite spacey too, though not much heavier than HW. ANother band that is a bit more modern, but that the HW influence cannot be denied, is the current project by My Silent Wake's original bassist, Alan South, called THE OTHER WINDOW. Ian Arkley has also played guitar on the two cd's they've released so far too! Look 'em up on MySpace. I have both discs and they're really good Doom-Metal

Ok,here it is

just took a ride
in a silver machine
and I'm still feeling mean
I got a silver machine
Do you want to ride
see yourself going by
other side of the sky
Well I got a silver machine
It flies sideways through time
It's an electric line
To your Zodiac sign
It flies out of a dream
It's anti-septically clean
You're gonna know where I've been
In my silver machine

I was listening to it the other day and a the anti-septic line caught my ear and I mis-heard the next line,I thought he said "You gotta know what I mean" and I began to wonder,wait a minute,is it a needle ?
Sorry,just so damn many drug references around,you just don't know sometimes.I have always thought that the mind itself is the greatest "trip",just sitting sometimes with something heavy and grooving on ,while pondering the universe...........

^^Well said. I'm usually not particularly offended by drug references in lyrics, but I don't need the stuff for myself.

Yeah,sometimes its just your perception I think,its funny but I can hear particular lines in particular songs and it click that that is the way I feel.I think IMHO,that is the mark of a great lyric writer,Dave Chandler of Vitus and Eric Wagner of Trouble are good examples,yet I know they are writing about drugs or drink,certain lines just hit home.Those two in particular have written my thoughts and feelings and opinions many times. Grumpy Politically/socially,Weinrich and Chandler, and the guys from Count Raven tend to voice what I am thinking, LordTsebaoth along with a little help from Grave Digger. Ed-banger!

Hmmmm - I may have to pick some up.

where's a good place to start?

btw - moorcock was the author of stormbringer, prince corum, hawkwind - among others - sci fi - fantasy all about the "eternal champion" stuff. All about a guy - in different times & places - who was a 'hero' - albeit with a difference, there were always flaws. Elrick (of stormbringer fame) was an albino. . . etc etc. Good books. Read a great many of them in my geeky teen years. Smile

Yep, that's the dood. Great stuff. I love his writing. I've been working my way through the Elric Saga for the last 3 years and I keep finding more! GEEN!

Hawkwind were the first total Stoner Rock band in my opinion. I remember back in the 70's you were considered a freak if you listened to the band. I remember getting high for one of the first times and listening to "Space Ritual", that album was a total freak out for its day. I was only listening to "Hall Of The Mountain Grill" last night, killer record. I think Brock is one of the greatest musicians to ever walk the earth, maybe not technically but his musical version is incredible.
