Something Else! sneak peek: Hawkwind’s Nik Turner, “Fallen Angel STS-51-L” (2013)

Beginning with an anthematic countdown to liftoff, the lead song from Nik Turner’s forthcoming Cleopatra Records studio effort couldn’t sound less like its name. “Fallen Angel STS-51-L,” quite simply, begins with all engines firing.
It never stops, either. From there, Hawkwind’s blissfully offbeat co-founding saxist leads a tough group of collaborators through an anarchic, ever-churning bit of lysergic-laced rock — with Turner sitting in the middle of this boisterous maelstrom, making a space man’s recitation of the lyrics.
“Fallen Angel STS-51-L” is available for preorder through iTunes.

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.
