Hawkwind biography
Over their 30-odd year history, HAWKWIND were probably the most famous underground rock band in the world. The group was formed in the late '60s by guitarist/singer Dave BROCK, guitarist Mick SLATTERY and saxman/flautist/singer Nik TURNER. Dave BROCK was the leader of HAWKWIND and he was the captain, as it were. The band never would have made it for 30 years without Dave.

HAWKWIND's history has been marked by a series of confusing line-ups through 40 or so personnel changes. Their sound has continued to metamorphose and evolve: an almost jazz feel ("Hawkwind"), the "experimental" & acoustic sounds of early releases ("In Search of Space"), changing to the metal sound of their days (mid 70's), and a modern electronic feel on the latest ("Electric Teepee"). Yes, one can detect definite evolutions. With the primary use of the synthesizer, heavy and delay with the touch of techno, HAWKWIND practically created a genre of music that be called: psychedelic space-rock. Their creativity seems to be in the use of the synths to add to the intense moods of their songs. They were the master of the acid-space rock genre.

There are at least 100 total albums that are either compilations, EP's, bootlegs of live performances, etc. You can't go wrong with any of the 70's releases in my opinion.
"Doremi Fasol Latido" ('72) - A great album with a heavy metal space rock a-la lan Lemmy KILMISTER, who later founded MOTORHEAD.
"A Space Ritual" ('73) - The essential live album combining Space-rock music, and poetry. The GREATEST album in the world!
"Hall of the Mountain Grill" ('74) - A great album for FLOYD fans - very heavy, psychedelic music with lots of effects.
"Warrior at the Edge of Time" ('75) - In my opinion, THE classic album.
"Quark, Strangeness and Charm" ('77) - A return to a more traditional HAWKWIND sound.
"The Hawklords - 25 Years On" ('78) - This is a massive compilation of their best stuff.
"PXR 5" ('79) - This album really started the HAWKWIND tradition of semi-live, semi-studio albums.

Then you should consider the following efforts which I would recommend to the "Hawkfan":
"Levitation" ('80) - The last truly great HAWKWIND studio album.
"The Church of Hawkwind" ('82) - Really a Dave BROCK solo album. Very spacey and electronic.
"Chronicle of the Black Sword" ('85) - The last major HAWKWIND release, was a concept album inspired by their friend Michael MOORCOCK's writings.
"Palace Springs" ('91) - A strong li...

Live & Rare: Onward Flies The Bird
Hawkwind Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Modrigue
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Some interesting live recordings and novelties

Composed mainly of extracts from late 70's HAWKWIND concerts, judging from the track-list ("Angels Of Death" being the only 80's track but certainly in gestation before), "Onward Flies The Bird" is overall a pleasant compilation. This disc contains a few live rarities and unfamiliar interpretations, not present on the famous releases "Space Ritual", "Live '79" or "Live Chronicles". For these reasons, and despite poor sound quality, they may interest both the fan and the newcomer.

Let's talk about the novelties first: two tracks unreleased in studio version. The trippy "Hash Cake '77" is a cool mystical and gloomy jam. Well worth the listen! In contrast, the bizarre atmospheric futuristic "Douglas in The Jungle" is rather average.

Nonetheless, the highlights are undoubtedly the particular live renditions of "Motorhead", "Angels of Death", "Magnu" and "Masters of The Universe", also included on the 1991 "Masters of the Universe" Castle edition compilation. Recorded at Barnstable Queens Hall 23rd December 1977 during the Hawklords / Sonic Assassins tour, "Angels of Death" may have been the first draft version of the track later featured on the "Sonic Attack" album. "Magnu" has rarely been so ferocious and heavy, the oriental sonorities being replaced by raging guitars. Mindblowing! An essential listen for every space metal lover! The origin of the versions of "Masters Of The Universe" and "Motorhead" are unsure, maybe also circa 1977, maybe during the same tour. Nonetheless, they're also harder and faster than their original studio versions and includes additional sci-fi effects. Very very nice.

Although not matching the quality of the HAWKWIND's well-known live releases, the other performances are quite enjoyable. With Dave Brock on vocals, "Urban Guerilla" is very energetic, and "You Shouldn't Do That" simply rocks!

There are some misses though. "Silver Machine" and "Who's Gonna Win The War" both have poor sound recording, while the flute is too present on "Space Is Deep", too lengthy. "Spirit of The Age" concludes the record but has been appended a ramshackle dissonant electronic opening.

If you're not too demanding on sound quality, there are no reason not to give a listen to "Onward Flies The Bird". The rare "Hash Cake '77", the uncommon metallic versions of "Magnu", "Motorhead", "Masters Of The Universe" and the draft version of "Angels of Death" will interest fans, while the disc might also serve well as a first flight for the newcomers. A nice little live compilation.

3 stars Cool studio/live Hawkwind

3.5 stars

Recorded in 1989 before "Space Bandits", "Palace Springs" is a studio/live album composed of 2 exclusive studio songs and 6 live recordings. This pleasant release marks a novelty, the arrival of a female singer in HAWKWIND, Bridgett Wishart, as well as the return of violinist Simon House.

The two studio compositions are easily on the level of "Space Bandits". To be honest I personally would have like these included on the 1990 opus instead of some other titles.... "Back In The Box" is an efficient space rocking opener, whose mesmerizing violin creates a mystical ambiance in the vein of "Magnu". Longest track of the record, "Treadmill" is a nice powerful song, in pure tradition of 80's HAWKWIND.

The live recordings cover different periods of the band. "Void Of Golden Light" ("The Golden Void") has been added trippy sound effects, whereas "Lives Of Great Men" ("Assault & Battery") possesses cool dreamy variations. "Time We Left" ("This World Today") is my least favorite title from "Doremi Fasol Latido", while "Heads" is the only representative of Englishes' last album, "The Xenon Codex". However, what will be an Hawks concert without ambient interludes with spoken words? "Acid Test" is actually the atmospheric "Dream Worker" - from the uneven "Choose Your Masques" - mixed with the electronic loop of "Damnation Alley". Quite a curious choice... This transition track offers some cool moments but is rather too long until "Damnation Alley" finally starts.

"Palace Springs" is not the first HAWKWIND live album to acquire (those being "Space Ritual" and "Live Chronicles") but remains still enjoyable, as well as a curiosity for its 2 exclusive studio tracks with a female singer. One of the good live release from the Hawks, worth the listen.

5 stars Hawkwind - Electric Tepee (1992)

The first halve of the seventies gave birth to the most famous albums of Hawkwind. One could easily be forgiven for believing the rest of their career is dispensable when looking at the mediocre scores of most of their eighties and nineties albums. I myself found some great studio albums and live albums in their later career. Most notably Levitation (1980), Electric Tepee (1992) and the fine Alien 4 (1996) are more then worthwhile. Live records like Live Chronicles (1986), Palace Springs (1991), The Business Trip (1994), Love in Space (1996) stand out and I expect to find some more.

Electric Tepee stands out as a milestone in their career for forming the perfect bland between the spacey punk rock and their modern electronic explorations. Well produced for a change. With extended simple and effective songs as vehicles for sonic exploration the band creates a great train of though that seems to progressive without stopping at any stations. The continuity of the music makes this a particularly interesting experience in the progressive rock world, which can be quite fragmentary. In the mean while the Hawkwind beat is pumping and electric guitars thrive in the abstract environments. The electronic moments without drums, bas en guitars are like mediations between the songs. It is natural to drift away with your attention when you listen to music and Hawkwind seems to anticipate. Just when you forgot you were listening music ? which can be pleasant ? they fire up the space rock engine and lift of with a catchy tune. The last ten minutes of the record sees the band slowly drifting away from the listener with the electronic Going to Hawaii and Electric Teep (the title track), an interesting ending.

For me this is a perfect studio album, especially for when traveling. Time just flows by - as does the music. On their next album 'It is the Business of the Future being Dangerous' the band would change the formula in favor of much more electronic exploration and little rock galore, but still an interesting mix. Some songs of Electric Tepee can also be found on The Business Trip live album, but for me the essence of this record isn't covered anywhere else then on this studio album. In contrast, the core material of Alien 4 was indeed played on the Love in Space recording - and some would argue improved upon.

I tried to explain away nineties Hawkwind in this review and I hope I can excite some more listeners in this great Hawkwind line-up of Brock, Chadwick and Davey. For this release I will give the full score because of its enjoyability, interesting vision and production.

5 stars Hawkwind - Live Chronicles (1986)

I have yet to find an eighties studio album by Hawkwind that I like, after being disappointed by the Chronicles of the Black Sword album. Luckily there is this double live album of eighties Hawkwind that saves the decade for me.

With a great slightly electronic twin guitar metal sound - reminding me a bit of Somewhere in Time - era Iron Maiden - the band succeeds to greatly improve on their eighties repertoire. Furthermore, guitarist Huw Lloyd- Langton stands out as the best solist the band has ever had. I just wonder why he sounds so different in the studio. I already loved the sound of band live, but he really brings the music to another level with fast en melodic solo's. The rest of the band plays the songs well and the vocals are simple, punk-like and enthusiastic. Not pitch perfect, but legit when cruising in this spacey environment. The synths are great. No ugly eighties synths, just legit uplifting space bathing material. Nothing too intelligent, just great sounding and an enrichment of the songs and overall live feel.

The song selection is interesting because of its selection of eighties tracks, mostly from their then latest Black Sword album. Some good riffs and catchy refrains. My favorite trait of a Hawkwind live album is continuity of the music. Between the songs we hear electronic interludes and 'narrations' and it really creates opportunity to just dream off into space. On the second disc the song selection is a bit weaker, but I would have given the first disc alone five stars.

I would warmly recommend this record to listeners of space rock, eighties metal, jam bands and symphonic rock. One of my favorite Hawkwind live albums. Also check out Love in Space!

2 stars Hawkwind - The Chronicle of the Black Sword (1985)

This album is often hailed as the only eighties record (except for Levitation) Hawkwind made that really hits the spot. It has some interesting light heavy metal sounds with typical eighties drums. The lyrical context is said to be a continuation of the Warrior on the Egde of Time period. Between most spacey metal tracks we find electronic interludes that aren't integrated at all. They are just there. This is something Hakwind would greatly improve live and on some of their nineties albums like Electric Tepee and Alien 4.

Back to this album. Some of the metal riffs are quite catchy and a few guitar solo's with reverb sound quite interesting. The vocals don't stand out for a Hawkwind album, but they aren't too bad either. The overly simplistic drums and the poor mixing are perhaps its greatest weaknesses. Had the guitars sounded louder and more dangerous this album might have been twice as fun to listen to. The overall production leaves much to be desired as well, though stylistically it has some interesting ideas. On this record Hawkwind isn't that far removed from Sowhere in Time / Seventh Son era Iron Maiden.

One must admit that songs like Song of the Swords, The Sea King and Horn of Destiny could make great live tracks. That is why I would put my money on the Live Chronicles live album of 1986. For the studio version of The Chronicle of the Black Sword itself I can't reach the good/non-essential mark, this would mainly be interesting for fans of the band.

4 stars Hawkwind - Levitation (1980)

If you like more traditional symphonic progressive music - and you want to buy just one Hawkwind record - I think I would recommend this one.

On this record the compositions are way more intricate and advanced then on all other Hawkwind records. A great variety of themes, inspired solo's and a broad sound pallet for both guitars and synths. The record reminded me a bit of the better work of Solaris. Flexible, adventurous and free - almost as if jamming, but more intelligent.

Of course a Hawkwind record will never be perfect. Take for instance the poor vocals of David Brock on most songs, the flawed disco bass on Motorway City and the loss of direction on some of the later songs on the album. Still, I doesn't matters much. This band sounds like it is on fire! Seldom will you hear a more enthusiastic symphonic progressive rock album. Is it because of the drums of ex-Cream Ginger Baker? Perhaps the rivalry between the guitars of Huw Lloyd-Langton and David Brock? I don't know but it feels right. Perhaps forming a new Hawkwind for a new age, without Robert Calvert, gave a lot to think about. I do know a band will never be much better then its drummer and Baker's contribution might be bigger then just listening to the album can reveal.

After this record the band would enter it's troublesome eighties with only Chronicle of the Black Sword as a slight return to form. It would take until Electric Tepee before the band would ever set eyes on making a fine quality record like this one.

Conclusion. Levitation is one of Hawkwinds best and most uplifting & refined records. Furthermore, it is well suited for the symphonic prog audiences that reside here. Thus, a four star rating can't be denied. Perhaps I will make if five one day.

3 stars Hawkwind - Quark, Strangeness and Charm (1977)

The second record of the Robert Calvert years of Hawkwind and in many ways a return to form. The band combines glamorous punk (in the vein of David Bowie), progressive electronic (a bit like Tangerine Dream), shoddy eastern influences and old fashioned space rock / metal.

The opening track Spirit of the Age is a bit uneventful, but most other tracks are either catchy or interesting. The nine minute track Damnation Allay stands out as a classic. I myself also like the original sounding Days of the Underground. I know not everybody loves Calvert's extravert performances - and they can be hit and miss - but at least he is some-one! He's out there adding personality to the music, something Hawkwind hasn't had much of in its long career.

Some of the songs have reappeared in different versions over the decades. I prefer the symphonic version of the title track on The Business Trip, this one sound a bit too punky and under-produced for my taste. Do mind about the lyrics though, quite funny. I think the eastern sounding Hassahn I Sahba has returned as Assassins of Allah on later releases and the Instrumental The Iron Dream was integrated on the Alien 4 record on Are You Loosing Your Mind?

Conclusion. I would rate this among the better work of Hawkwind and perhaps the best record of the Robert Calvert years. Not quite up there with Warrior on the Edge of Time, Levitation, Electric Tepee and Alien 4, but still more then worthwhile. Three and a halve stars.

2 stars Hawklords - 25 Years On (1978)

This is not a compilation album.

I had become quite interested in the Robert Calvert era of Hawkwind after some promising artsy David Bowie-like songs on PRX 5. On this Hawklords record - released under a different flag due to contract issues - the band sounds even more artsy and punky. Meaning less space rock and proto metal vibes, but that's fine.

This time most songs don't do much for me. The opener PSI Power has a nice glamorous yet melancholic punk feel but drags on a bit. Free Fall has some nice bass loops and synths but falls short as a song with its 'out there' performance of Calvert. On the title song, 25 Years, the music drowns in its own production resulting in a cringe worthy track. Flying Doctor is a more conventional Hawkwind track but the pub-like amateurish vocals and uninteresting (or dated) sound pallet leave me unimpressed. The Only Ones is a better David Bowie like track with an elegant space feel. In the two closing tracks Bowie imitations fail to work effectively.

Conclusion. Not the record I had hoped to find. Partly well produced and well adapted to its day and age, but lacking of substance (or pleasant trippiness for that matter). I myself would prefer the 'mixed bag' PRX 5 any day and I hope to find more Calvert goodness on Quark Strangeness and Charm. Adding up to two stars.

4 stars Hawkwind - Alien 4 (1995)

The Hawkwind line-up of Brock, Davey and Chadwick is perhaps one of my favorite bands ever. Electronic Space Rock Records like Electric Tepee, Palace Springs (live), The Business Trip (live), Love in Space (live) and Alien 4 are totally up my alley. I have yet to try the more ambient records in between. The combination of almost Trance music-like electronic synth baths, seriously dark and effective compositions, a steady sounding band and well- produced albums (now that's rare in the Hawkwind catalogue..) make this a great period for the band.

Now, most people would argue that the best songs of the Alien 4 record sound better on the great Love In Space live album and I would partially agree. However, the total atmosphere of this studio album is great in and of itself and the many dark symphonic passages between the rock songs are wel integrated. It's just another great space- rock album that progresses smoothly and uninterrupted. It's great to have different versions of song you like. I also like the spoken word performances on this recording. The material is not as legendary as Warrior on the Egde of Time, but so much more enjoyable en consistent.

Whereas I gave Love In Space five stars, Alien 4 deserves at least four. A great album for spacerock listeners. Listeners of progressive electronic and neo-prog should take a peak as well. I'm actually a bit amazed by how low the PA score for this fantastic album is, it should be right up there with Electric Tepee IMHO.

3 stars Hawkwind - PXR 5 (1979)

Ok that was a fun little album to listen to. Recently I've been putting Hawkwind's lesser known albums on my mp3 player and more often then not I'm pleasantly surprised by their post 1975 output. I like some of their records but even on a good quality vinyl and stereo they tend to sound pretty poor. Even the otherwise interesting Warrior on the Edge of Time sound unbearable at moments.

Trying to keep up with the times this Hawkwind album is a strange combination of songs. Opener Death Trap could have been a punk anthem. Bare and 'local sounding' in a pleasant way. The psychedelic glamour folkrock on Jack of Shadows and High Rise remind me of classic Bowie records. Plain lovely. Other tracks are classic simple Hawkwind tracks with sci-fi lyrics and simple - though catchy - musical themes. The full landscape synths that are absent on the first two tracks will be there on most other songs. Some tracks are live recordings. I like all tracks, but the different production styles / sounds don't help but creating a compilation feel, in stead of that of a coherent rock album. On the remastered version the overall sound quality is however relatively good.

Conclusion. This was more enjoyable then expected, perfect music for traveling in places with background noise. I'll give it a warm three stars for quality, but I myself will get a four star enjoyment out of this one. Furthermore, this will motivate me to dig a little deeper in the Hawkwind catalogue.
