History

Hawkwind is known as one of the quintessential progressive rock acts of all time and is certainly synonomous with space rock. The act's cover art and sleeve design has many a impressed fan. The band was initiated by Brock and Nik Turner in the mid-60's.

The band was quick to establish a reputation for splendid live shows and plain eerieness. The band would veer from poppy to heavy to esoteric seemingly at will.

Space Ritual, only the band's second record, would enter the Britsh album charts. Although the band's debut also featured a single, called Hurry Sundown. In 1971 - and by now half a dozen lineup changes later - the band added fantasy writer Michael Moorcock as an additional singer to the fold. The band added former Hendrix roadie and future Motorhead man Lemmy Kilmister in the same year. It is with this lineup that the English lads scored their biggest hit ever, the revered Silver Machine single. By this time the band is a band of temps, with at least three simultaneous vocalists and two drummers!

Lemmy was soon fired for getting the band into trouble for alleged drug possession upon entering Canada for a string of dates and even more lineup changes ensued. Coincidentally, Motorhead and Hawkwind would end up on the same label later and would both even issue albums called Orgasmatron. The pivotal Turner would also leave in 1976. Vocalist Bob Calvert died of heart failure in 1988. The band was involuntarily made to operate as Hawklords as a result. 25 Years On was released using this moniker. When the legal dust settled a year later, David and his astromusicians rematerialized the Hawkwind name.

Next, the band signed to Bronze Records and even recruited Cream's drummer Ginger Baker for a while. This liaison would last two years. Turner was now part of the band for a year. The 90's meant more touring, more festival appearances, more records and a band down to the core of Brock and two or three other musicians. Interestingly, a band dubbed Nik Turner's Hawkwind was also circling the globe then. Emergency Broadcast System is the band's own label. Knights Of Space was a band DVD released in 2008. Onward was the name of the 2012 album by Hawkwind. It was out on April 30th through Eastworld Recordings. It was recorded at Earth Studio.

John Harrison, founding bassist for Hawkwind, died in his sleep on May 26th, 2012. John had been suffering from Huntington disease since 2005. John died at Garden Crest clinic in Los Angeles, California. John would have been 70 on May 28.

Hawkwind is often cited as an influence by many musicians in the same breath as David Bowie and Pink Floyd.
