EXCLUSIVE: Davey Curtis sees Hawkwind at Holmfirth

Dear Jon,

I have often wondered why bands like to play the Picturedrome, because no disrespect to Holmfirth but it's not exactly the centre of the universe.

I now know why. It is a cracking venue with superb acoustics and well worth the trip.

Hawkwind were brilliant as usual. Tim Blake did his warm up act again and had the crowd eating out of his hands with a solo version of Spirit of the Age. Later the Sax player from Hipiersonik joined the band on stage and that was a nice touch. I think thats my slice of Hawk pie until they play Newcastle later this year, unless I can sneak off to the Stamford gig in August. I'll have to butter up Mrs C and get some brownie points.

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.
