Michael Moorcock biography
UK artist Michael MOORCOCK is best known for his long career as an author. One of the driving forces of the British New Wave of Science Fiction, and his interwoven fantasy series of books about The Eternal Champion in general and the fictional character Elric of Melnibone in particular are legendary among fans of fantasy fiction. He was named as one of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945 by UK newspaper The Times in 2008. Throughout his career he has worked with several artists and bands as well, and most of all with space rock band Hawkwind, who recorded a concept album based on his Elric of Melnibone series of books. Moorcock joined the band for the tour following this album, reciting from his novels as part of the stage show.

In the 1970's Moorcock was also given the chance to record an album of his own. Released under the moniker Michael Moorcock & The Deep Fix, "The New World's Fair" was a concept album, featuring guest appearences by many fairly well known musicians. Including many of the musicians that were members of Hawkwind at that time. The album have seen a number of reissues over the years, most of them with revised or expanded track lists.

Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars English writer Michael Moorcock have for most of his career had a close relationship with various musicians, especially Hawkwind, and this release is his one and only attempt as a rock musician himself.

It's a concept album, where Moorcock's spoken lyrics and crowd noises is the red thread binding together a story about "Dude" going to the fair. It's a rather unique experience in many ways, the psychedelic tinged tunes with a distinct 60's flavor to them mixed in with dark and eerie lyrics - and a high level of theatrics in songs as well as the passages read out by Moorcock. Not all the tunes work out here, in fact it's a fairly mixed release overall, but this is also very much a one of a kind release; worth checking out for the good bits.

Fans of retro psychedelic rock should find this one interesting, as well as fans of Hawkwind.
