Apologies for repeating that we do not ‘do’ tribute acts, but had a glimpse of this Hawkwind act not so long ago here.
We saw the real thing at a recent Rock n Blues at Skegness, but up until then I only have a blur of a Hawkwind gig at Leeds University in (I think ) 1972. My recollection from then is of their playing something called ‘Cosmic Space Interplanetary Voyage 7b’ , or something like that , as the opening number. I thought they were doing a soundcheck! And of course the memory of Stacia dancing.
So, Do Not Panic! I think the first number was ‘Masters of the Universe’ , but not sure about the next two. We had to go for the bus unfortunately, so only caught 3 numbers. To us, they seemed decent enough, with maybe not that constant throb that Hawkwind have. But, it was the second Friday of music without all the usual pub-rock covers, so a definite plus.
Worth a punt, mp3s available on their website.
Addendum. Rich kindly sent me the set list, in case anyone is thinking about seeing them. I think we will try to stop the full length next time. Have downloaded the free mp3s on their website , decent stuff.
