15.08.14 - Hawkwind launch a Sonic Attack on the singles chart with a little help from Brian Blessed!

It’s the musical collaboration we never knew we needed, until now! Legendary space rockers HAWKWIND have teamed up with kingly thespian Brian Blessed for a brand new single version of ‘Sonic Attack!’ 

When Hawkwind decided to recreate their classic Space Ritual show of 1972, for one night only, at the London’s Shepherds Bush Empire in February 2014, the venerable group donated all proceeds to animal charities including Team Badger – of which Brian Blessed is a patron. It was a gig that set the wheels in motion for a storming new partnership.  

The accompanying video was created by long time Hawkwind artist Martin McGuiness.

This powerful addition to the Hawkwind canon is available from 1st September 2014.

Sonic Attack is on the way…01.09.14. Pre-order the single now to help Brian and Hawkwind break the Top 40!

25.04.14 - Hawkfest feedback pleaseHello folks,

We would love feedback from all of you who attended HawkEaster this year (and last)...

We have been asked if it would be possible next year to move it to a different weekend....maybe later in the summer when it is warmer....?

We will be having a vote on facebook later, so would like to know the thoughts of the folk on here who are not on facebook.

Do we keep it at Easter or turn it into a summer fest......or maybe May bank holiday?

Please let us hear your thoughts and opinions by dropping us a line at Hawkeasterdate@hawkwind.com

Thanks,

The HawkEaster Team :-) x

25.02.14 - Space Ritual DVD & CD leaflet to download

Hello Folks, Now we are nearly all home and nearly all recovered from what was an epic weekend, we just wanted to say a big THANK YOU! to everyone who came along, supported the causes and made the weekend so special...

But most of all we are indebted to the volunteers who gave up their afternoon and packed party bags for several hours before the show.....We salute you!

We have noticed that there is a little confusion as some of the bags contained DVD pre-order forms and some did not...So for all the folk who didn't get a form and some did not......So for all the folks who didn't get a form in their bag (or indeed if you couldn't get to the actual show) you can download it by clicking here

For those of you unsure about how to print this off, here's a couple of suggestions -

From your web browser

Firefox - Depending on which version you are using either go File - Print and follow the onscreen instructions or for more recent editions there is a tab on the left hand side of the screen that says "Firefox", click this and select the Print option

Internet Explorer - Hover over picture, right click and select "Print Picture" from the list of options.

Alternately you can save the image directly to your computer by once again right clicking on your mouse and selecting "Save Image As" in firefox and "Save Picture As" in explorer.

Hope that helps!

Doors will open at 2pm for sound check, production rehearsals and run throughs of various parts of the set with lightshow and dancers.

We plan to have a complete dress rehearsal early evening (approx 6pm – 8pm or 7pm – 9pm depending on how the day has worked out).

As this is a rehearsal day and the unexpected can happen, all times are approximate and the programme is liable to change without notice.

There will be a full bar and food available throughout the day.

Filming is expected to take place throughout the afternoon and evening. Your attendance at the event will be taken and accepted as your consent and agreement for your image to be used in any media produced from the event.

With Easter weekend falling almost a month later than last year, (19/20th April), we are hoping the weather will be a lot warmer…..We have again booked the private camping field at Manor Farm  and Eves Tipis are also taking orders.

 The same as last year, there will be a bus running between the campsite and the venue after the show.

The tourist attractions, shops, pubs and cafes of Seaton are again giving us a warm welcome and will be offering discounts to everyone attending the weekend.

We will be opening the doors on the evening of Friday 18th April for registration, wristbands and a social get together with music and DVDs on the big screen and a full bar…..This worked very well last year and it was a great evening…

We will again open the venue on Easter Monday morning/lunchtime to meet for a goodbye picnic lunch.

For everyone attending the Rock4Rescue charity event at Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Sat 22nd February, please remember the doors open at 6.30pm and things will start to happen around 7.00pm.

.02.13 - Warrior On The edge Of Time Press Release

Atomhenge, the Cherry Red Records label managed by Esoteric Recordings, the home of the entire HAWKWIND catalogue released between 1975 and 1997, are very pleased to announce that the classic HAWKWIND album “WARRIOR ON THE EDGE OF TIME”

will be released in May 2013 as a newly remastered edition from the original stereo master tapes. Atomhenge label manager Mark Powell said; “Contrary to popular myth, the master tapes of this classic album were never lost. They remained in the United Artists vaults. The Atomhenge reissue will be the first ever CD edition to be taken from the original first generation master tapes. All previous editions have been taken from vinyl transfers or inferior copy master tapes”.

Aside from a single disc remastered edition, there will be two other expanded editions of the album. Mark Powell adds; “I’m extremely pleased to say that Steven Wilson has mixed the album into a stunning 5.1 Surround Sound mix from the original multi-track master tapes and has also undertaken a new stereo mix of the album which has an amazing depth and clarity whilst remaining faithful to the original release. “Warrior” is one of THE classic albums of the 1970s and is a land-mark album in Hawkwind’s history. The forthcoming reissues will do justice this magnificent record”.

Full details of the editions of “Warrior” will be announced in the coming weeks.

Cherry Red managing director, Adam Velasco added; “The album “Warrior on the Edge of Time” has been unavailable officially on CD for many years and it is our intention to make the forthcoming releases definitive editions in terms of audio remastering (from the original master tapes), content and packaging”.

Hawkwind will be touring in April 2013 performing WARRIOR ON THE EDGE OF TIME, with further dates planned later in the year. Confirmed dates ca be found on the Tour dates page by clicking here

20.01.13 - Camping details for Hawkeaster

We had a meeting with the campsite owners the other day. It's a beautiful site with amazing views over Lyme Bay. The campsite is approximately 15 minutes walk to the venue, (a little more coming back as it's uphill :-). The venue is 2 minutes walk from the sea front :-).

The price per pitch for a large/family tent (and car) is £10 or £5 for single/small tent (and car), payable directly to the site owners.
There are a few electric hook-ups available on the campsite, but unfortunately, only for tents as the site is not suitable for motor homes etc, unless the ground is exceptionally dry. There are however, extra spaces for motor homes elsewhere on the site, which do have electric hook ups.

28.12.12 - A quick thank you

Hello Folks.

We would like to thank those of you who braved the terrible weather on December 20th to join us in the Celebration of the Life of Huw Lloyd-Langton. It was a wonderful tribute to Huw, that so many people attended to pay their last respects and helped to make it a day that Huw would have approved of..

Marion, Kirsty and family would like to thank everyone who sent messages of tribute and condolence.

Your support was truly appreciated.

Later in the year, we are planning to erect a memorial, with a commemorative plaque, in a place where fans and friends can visit to remember Huw.

This will be in the summer and we will make it a day of celebration. Hopefully it will give those of you who could not attend on Thursday, the opportunity to come, share your stories and say farewell.

More details on this soon

19.12.12 - A brief message from Huw's family

As you can imagine there has been an overwhelming response to the very sad news of Huw’s passing. We have had thousands of messages from all around the world.
There are so many folk who would have loved to come and pay their respects to Huw in person on Thursday, but practicalities would not allow.

Marion and Kirsty have expressed their wishes that those people from around the world, who cannot be present, light a candle at 12 noon and say a few words in Huw’s memory.

If you would like to follow the service, we will be publishing the Order of Service on Thursday via the website, keep an eye out for the link to appear.

For obvious reason we won't be posting from the usual address so if there are any problems we will also be putting the link details onto facebook so if nothing has appeared here by midday uk time on Thursday then please check there for the relevant details, thank you.

Update - A couple more points for you regarding tomorrow

No dress code, come as you feel comfortable.

Huw's family have requested that people do not take pictures on the day,
We are sure everyone will understand and respect their wishes.
Thanks in advance for your co-operation.

First of all on behalf of Huw's wife Marion, daughter Kirsty and the rest of the Hawkwind family, we'd like to send out a heartfelt thanks to all of you who have sent tributes and kind words of support at this sad time, via the forum, facebook and e-mail.

Due to an overwhelming response and restrictions on space we need everyone who would like to come and pay their respects to Huw on the 20th December, and who has not already confirmed, to contact us at Huw@hawkwind.com as soon as possible and at the latest by Monday 17th December. We will then collate a list of names which will be checked on the day. Unfortunately if you are not listed, we will not be able to guarantee entry for the reasons mentioned.

07.12.12 - Huw Lloyd Langton R.I.P

It is with immense sadness that we have to let you know our great friend of many years and fellow musician Huw Lloyd Langton passed away peacefully last night.

Huw had been bravely fighting cancer for a couple of years, but was determined not to let the battle affect his day to day life. He continued to play his guitar, laugh, joke and share the great love he had in his heart, with all who knew him.

As he wished, he was at home when the time came, with his ever strong and loving wife Marion at his side.

Huw was one of the great guitarists with an individual style and character. He is gone but never forgotten by any of us. He will live on in our music and in our hearts.

We will update you all with details of funeral and remembrance plans as and when we have them.

Meanwhile we have opened a book of condolence on our forum click here to visit, for all of the many people who will wish to share their thoughts at this sad time.

If you do not wish to join the  forum but still want to leave a message then please send an e-mail here and we will make sure these are added to the book at an appropriate time.

Breaking News!

Hawkwind Theremin and Ax player, Tim Blake has broken his wrist in a freak pruning accident at his French home near Poitiers...

It seems that Monsieur Blake, was pruning the wall vines in his small vineyard, when the ladder collapsed under him, shattering his wrist.

Tim was rushed by ambulance to Poitiers University Hospital where he was operated on by the head of orthopaedics, le Professor Gayet.

The plaster-cast will be taken off on August 13, and doctors will operate immediately to remove the 3 pins.

Tim will then travel to Hawkwind HQ in the UK to join the rest of the band for their performance at Rockin the Park festival in Nottinghamshire, on August 17.

Tim commented, "When the medical team saw a video of me playing with Hawkwind, they said, 'Okay, we'll get you playing for the 17th, but this will hurt !'"

We might well see Tim playing a little more Theremin than Ax, at Clumber, however he pointed out, "that a very expressive wrist is needed!"

 

 


03.07.12 - First date of 2013 confirmed, we're off to Butlins!

29.05.12 - John Harrison 28.05.42 - 26.05.12

Hello folks,

We are really sad to have to pass on this sad news. We will do an update when we return to England with details of Johns life and how he has spent his years since leaving Hawkwind.

We thought it appropriate to share the message that we received from John's sister Franny in its entirety.

"Hi Dave & Kris,
Sadly, John passed away on Saturday evening 26th May. He went peacefully, after a wonderful day.

I'll just back track a week... John wanted to celebrate his forthcoming birthday by giving the staff at Garden Crest a lunch party. So food was brought in and everyone had a good time.

During that week he began to sleep a lot more than usual, and although his breathing was a bit more laboured, he was still speaking pretty good.
The great thing was.. He received all our family birthday cards, and was so thrilled to receive cards and letters from you lovely folk, and many Hawkwind fans (some too young to have seen John play) all saying such wonderful things,. His best friend Linda , was amazed by the content of the letters, as John had never really talked about this part of his life. She is going to send them over to me later on , So that me n sis n cousins can enjoy reading them.

John was also very happy to receive a package from me, containing photos I'd taken when i visited him last month, of his carers, and also some beach life at "Surf City USA" where I stayed. Also included were copies of illustrations I had just finished for a book a friend has written, (these had been giving me nightmares as they'd taken me so long to do). He thought they were brilliant ( well he would - he's my bruv ! ha ha).

So on Saturday 26th when Linda visited, she re-read his cards and letters with him, and also my package which he had been saving for her to show him,and to read all my attatchments. He really enjoyed himself, deciding which things to add to his pinboard, or the wall.
He also spent his usual time in the garden, under the tree, shaded from the hot Californian sun, overlooking the wonderful views, eating ice cream.

In the evening, William was attending to John around 7.45pm. John thanked him for looking after him. William looked in on him again around 8pm and found he had passed away.

Linda returned to see him, and said his face was so peaceful, and showed no signs that he'd been distressed . which is a great relief to us all, as it was expected that his final time could be quite traumatic.

She also said that during the week Robyn, his lovely visitor from social services, had a nice talk with him, and Linda too had a conversation with him about what might happen. She said he was very "at peace" no longer afraid, and felt it would be just like going to sleep.

I think I mentioned that John had arranged that his body would go to UCLA medical centre. They were notified straight away, and a very nice white vehicle collected him .Several carers and staff watched him leave ,and said their goodbyes to "Mr John". He was treated with great respect and dignity.

Once again many thanks Dave and Kris , Hawkwind, and Fans, for your kindness in sending messages, cards and letters to John. It played such a great part in giving him happiness and contentment in his final days.

When you update your website with the news about John , you may use any info from this e mail if you wish.
Meanwhile, Hope the tour has kicked off well, and you are all having a fantastic time. with sell-out venues.

Love n Best wishes
Franny"

 

 


29.05.12 - Crystal Palace gig cancelled

Unfortunately we have just found out that the Crystal Palace Garden Party gig that was scheduled to take place on the 23rd June has been cancelled due to "Structural damage to the stage".

Whilst we are sorry to have to announce this it is obviously beyond Hawkwind's control.

19.05.12 - Some news regarding original Hawkwind bassist John Harrison

Hello folks,

We have some sad news about our friend and original Hawkwind bass player John Harrison. John was diagnosed with Huntington's disease about 7 years ago, and is now in the later stages of it. It's a horrible situation for sufferers, as in John's case the brain stays sharp, but a single gene mutation causes neurons in the brain to die which affects movement etc. The body starts shaking in the first stages and then gradually closes down.

He is in a clinic and virtually bed ridden, but thanks to the brilliant team of carers, and his own laid back, cheery personality, he has adapted to his condition, and is very popular.

His view is the Hollywood hills, the "Hollywood" sign, the Griffith Park Observatory, and beyond those, the mountains.

He has happy memories of his time in Hawkwind and has agreed to allow us to share the news of his condition with you all. He sends his best wishes.


He will be 70 on 28th May and if anyone would like to send him a birthday card he is at:

Garden Crest

909 North Lucile Avenue

Los Angeles 90026California

Thanks for reading

30.04.10 - Hawkwind - new studio album details revealed

Eastworld Recordings has announce the signing of legendary space rockers Hawkwind.

The original pioneers of space rock return with their eagerly awaited new album, "Blood Of The Earth", their first in five years. Produced by the band at state-of-the-art recording facility Earth Studios, "Blood Of The Earth" takes the listener on a journey through crushing visceral space rock, doom driven poetry, whimsical mantras and imagination opera. An example of humans and machines pulsing in harmony out into the void....

Hawkwind is an English rock band, one of the earliest space rock groups. Their lyrics favour urban and science fiction themes. They are also a noted precursor to punk rock and now are considered a link between the hippie and punk cultures.

Formed in early1969 by singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Brock, Hawkwind has gone through many incarnations and styles of music. Critic Jim Green describes their trademark sound as characterized by "that gargantuan and impenetrable pre-metal/hardcore drone, those great riffs, that inexorable drive to destinations unknown". Dozens of musicians have worked with the group; notable fantasy and science
fiction writer Michael Moorcock was an occasional collaborator.

The album will be available in 3 formats -

14.03.10 - Carol Clerk RIP

It is with heavy heart that we have to let you know, our good friend Carol Clerk passed away peacefully in her sleep yesterday at 11.45am.

She had been battling breast cancer for over a year. In November she suffered a stroke and was diagnosed with an additional brain tumour. Over the weeks the tumour grew and put pressure on her brain.

She was admitted to Wisdom Hospice on Thursday and slept through.

Yesterday morning, with her husband Nigel by her side, she just stopped breathing and slipped quietly away.

Carol wanted to keep her illness quiet and she suffered in silence for so long - but now the world needs to know that she is no longer with us.

It was a privilege for us to call Carol our friend, she was a beautiful, intelligent, funny, woman, a great friend and a talented journalist.

Carol loved Hawkwind and always said that the Hawkwind book was the best she had ever written.

We felt an affection for Carol which went far beyond that of a purely professional relationship.

After writing the book, we stayed in touch, we met socially and she attended the last Hawkfest with her family and had a great time

She will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Our thoughts are with her husband Nigel and her daughter Eve.

Rest in peace our friend.........

01.12.09 - Huw update

Hello Folks,

Marion has asked me to tell you that we need some more positive thoughts and prayers for Huw. Unfortunately the doctors are not happy with his kidneys and if it does not improve in the next month he will have to go back on dialysis. He is also anaemic and needs to put on weight........So come on everyone, lets put our minds together and send him some good energy...

The good news is that he says nothing will stop him doing the 9th at the Brook and it will probably do him good!

I will update you all with any news as I get it.

Thanks, Kris x

Hello folks!

We saw Huw yesterday and he is in good spirits

Although he is not out of the woods yet, he is certainly going in the right direction and the positiveness that has come from all your messages and prayers has certainly helped.....

The next few days are going to be crucial, so keep up those positive thoughts and prayers....

Unfortunately Huw also broke his finger when he was very ill and had it operated on today.........(It should fully recover and he will be back playing his guitar as soon as he is able...)

We had a little caption competition at the hospital, but would welcome any suggestions you have, please post these to either the forum or myspace for the attached photo

All entries will be passed on to Huw and Marion to judge...

We will keep you updated of any news...

Love Kris



 


 
 

04.10.09 - More news regarding Huw Lloyd Langton

Hi all

One of our forum members happens to work at the same hospital where Huw is being treated and has just posted the following message which you'll no doubt want to read -

Just a quick message from Marion and Huw to post :

Ah! Thank you. Actually you could post a message from me please.

Yesterday Huw was in a remarkable frame of mind and is being very positive and philosophical about it all. Quote "look so what if it is dialysis for rest of my life or a kidney transplant c'est la vie - I can think of a lot worse things cancer being one of them". So he is back fighting the cause. Which of course gives me a huge amount of
energy to carry on.

I believe the wonderful prayers, good vibes and support sent out by the Hawkwind family have given him real courage to fight this. So thank you one and all and keep sending them up!

 

 

 

03.10.09 - Huw Lloyd Langton very ill

Please send all your thoughts, prayers and good vibes to Huw and Marion to get them through this.

If you would like to send a card, please send it to :-

Huw Lloyd Langton
Prince of Wales Ward
Dorset County Hospital
Williams Avenue

We will update you of any news as soon as we hear it.
 

 

 

07.09.09 - A couple of things for you

First off some of you may have noticed this on the home page but it's worth repeating here -

Hawkwind are subject of a 1 hour special entitled "The Mighty Wind – Hawkwind at 40" that will be aired for the first time on Planet Rock radio this coming Saturday at 7pm UK time, the show will feature interviews with both the band and fans recorded at the recent Porchester Hall gigs and promises to appeal to both the hard core fan as well as those less familiar with the band, so i doubt that part applies to anyone reading this.

The show will also be repeated on the 17th September (time unknown) and as well as this it will also feature on the stations media player meaning you will be able to access it for 7 days after the initial broadcast via the internet. Planet rock is available on DAB digital radio and the world wide web, to visit the stations web site click here.

Secondly, tomorrow, the 8th September marks the first anniversary of the sad passing of Hawkwind keyboard player Jason Stuart, may we suggest that Hawkfans the world over take a brief moment during the day to remember him and raise a glass in his honour whenever and wherever you happen to be.

Thanks for reading
 

 

 

04.09.09 - Amorphous Androgynous album launch party update please read

The eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that the date of the Matter @ O2 gig has been put back to the 30th October.

We have literally been informed of this within the last hour so wanted to let fans know as soon as possible.

Our understanding is that the 30th October is now the preferred date for the show but is not 100% cast in stone as this announcement is being written, as soon as we have a definite date this entry will be updated to reflect this,

Apologies for this but please be aware that this is outside the control of Hawkwind as the band are appearing on someone else's bill and as such have no influence over their decision to move the date back.

03.06.09  Hawkwind to appear at Green Man Festival

In what is becoming an increasingly busy summer we can now confirm that Hawkwind will be playing the Green Man festival in Wales on the 23rd August. as part of 11 hours of "Space Music", for more details see below or visit the festival's own web site by clicking here.

On Sunday night in the Far Out Tent Amorphous Androgynous will be performing as a band in their own right as well as curating 11 hours of Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble cosmic space music. Bands will include legendary space rockers Hawkwind, beautiful folk from the mellifluously voiced Alisha Sufit (of 70s MAGIC CARPET fame ), The Yellow Moon Band hot off the space launch pads of last year’s album 'Travels Into Several Remote Nations Of The World”. Nick Nicely will enthrall with his colour saturated universe of psychedelic songs and Cranium Pie will cover the space-prog end of the MPB spectrum, with Amorphous Androgynous themselves covering all sonic dimensions in between. On the DJ front expect to hear a spectrum illuminated by psychedelic, funkoid infused progtronica, to pagan love vibrations and Indian sitar cover versions. Basically expect the unexpected to liberate your mind, soul and your feet from Andy Votel and the Monstrous Psychedelic impresario himself Gaz Cobain! With lighting by the Bardo States it'll be an 11 hr visual and sonic feast!
