The shows are spectacular...and a throwback to the once rich, healthy arena rock tours from the 1970s to early 1990s.
Privacy//Policy is also playing with Kill It With Fire and Palaces on Sunday at the Happy Dog!
Oooh...Hot artistic and SUPERSMART!!!!!
There is a God....
Thatsa fat chunk of GOOD bands this weekend!!!!
But the road in front of the Beachland is all tore up so be forewarned!!!!!!
More focus on Indy music as well!!!!!!
Sounds like Indy music is alive and well still!!!
Love the album cover, she looks like she's going to smash someone in the face with that guitar. The fact that she has a song called "I'm Not Sorry" makes me imagine that she wrote that after smashing someone in the face with said guitar. Awesome.
nice review- ur right about the catchy songs. just listenedd to "maybe" on itunes. she sounds great tho
I disagree, Jordan's got one hell of a voice! Have you heard her sing live?
"Space Gypsy" should pop up on numerous AOY lists. Nik's post-Hawkwind projects are all tantalizingly mesmerizing in its explorations of body, soul and mind. And that he answered the reporter's questions by swinging a few haymakers should be expected -- his place as a space-rock revolutionary is set....he doesn't need to play the PC charade.
Benefit for Sonny Geraci?
I think you're probably right, it's late in the evening for both Dave and Nik now, they should put distrust of one another aside, and the same goes for a lot of the fans regardless of where loyalties lay. They are both great performers that actually compliment each other on stage, and in a lot of ways, Nik has never left HW, he has haunted them despite Dave's efforts to exorcise his ghost, and Dave has to be highly admired for his commitment to the band despite Nik's efforts to remove him from the throne. Be good to see them both bury this nonsense and do something together again.
I think its high time Dave and Nik got together sat down in a locked room and didnt ask to be let out untill they had both kissed and made up.... Come on guys your both seventy odd now and its time to maybe grow up......... Remember the good old days when Hawkwind did this for fun? An idea for you... Why not get back together dave, Nik, Lemmy, plus any of the original band who are still with us make one last record and tour the planet and make it your swan song while you still can. You know it makes sense... we all want... you need your heads banging together... Just do it.....! Together you are the real Hawkwind and we all love you as i suspect you all love each other really...
Re Brockgetreal. Whether you like Turner or Brock is a question of taste, and what you feel about either of them is your opinion, but to insist that Dave Brock should grow some balls as a means to resolving the issue is hardly being realistic. Bands actually don't make a lot from touring, the main revenue is achieved through product sales, in HW's case, they have to shift band, equipment, lightshow, crew, dancers, etc, from the UK, backers also probably hold the purse strings. Nik is playing a slightly different game, it may be stated in the tour info that is Space Ritual touring, but it isn't and the other band members are pretty pissed off about it apparently, so Nik has an American set up which is considerably more cost effective than with a long established band like HW. I haven't met up with Dave since the late 80's, but I knew him reasonably well enough way back to know he will bide his time til he has the last laugh, and perhaps you may also realise, regardless of preferences which you are entitled to, that this is more about the legal/cost fall out as it is about growing balls.
keeper of the flame my ars nik
Congratulations to these young men, Although, I'm an Acoustic picker. I do believe they are on to some thing that should ignite a spark to music stores everywhere. It's more than selling, guitars, it's an idea that you can create something with the input from experts to help you achieve your goal.
D.Brock should grow some balls . He can't tour because another man 5000 miles away gives him stress. Ha ha ha ! It just that side by side by side Nik Turner show smokes Brock . Brock try a real job like we all do . That's stress ! Grow balls !
I quite agree with Jimski, the US lost an enemy after the Cold War, but since 9/11 they passed new laws as a means of invading privacy, the fight against terrorism and the protection of restricted information went up so many notches, especially after recent leaks by Manning/Snowden, that even visa information in the public domain would be considered a breach of security. The origin of this rumour is dubious, and the US authorities should investigate, it should have also been a 'no brainer' for the person concerned that sometimes it's best to keep your mouth shut. It's all a bit sad really, because it's buried the real story, that the difference between the UK and US tour is a gruelling fourteen thousand mile trek, scuppered by the financial/legal implications of having two HW's playing the same towns, and this was going to be part way through the UK tour. So, tired, stressed, pissed off and being seventy three is the likely story, enough said.
What a tosspot.
So, the quote is "He claimed it was making him ill and he had to cancel his tour due to me. It transpired that his visa was turned down because of all his drug convictions and gun convictions and GBH convictions. I don't personally get involved in that and I don't go on the Internet much. It's just hearsay. I think it's crazy."
He doesn't get involved, but took time out to repeat the rumour? Oh, and the only person who can be tracked down as the origin of the 'rumour' appears to have a hardly used profile, no links to or likes to Hawkwind, says that the information came from a source at US immigration (surely National Security isn't that lax in the USA?) and the posting immediately after this originated was a confirmation of this by .... Turner's tour manager.
