HAWKWIND: New album review

After a series of largely mediocre albums, decades old psychedelic rock band Hawkwind released another grand ode to space, drugs, and hard rock. The album takes on a largely more electronic sound than the classic ‘70s material, and through the wonders of modern production, the hard rock sound is easily more pronounced. The album is still wholly Hawkwind however, with distorted vocals, hazy, hard rocking riffs, and that smooth, mysterious feel that radiates from Hawkwind’s music, that entrances the listener and creates a strong desire to listen to the great music.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
