The Saga of Hawkwind

Carol Clerk, Omnibus Press, 2004

Emerging from the hippie heartland of London's Ladbroke Grove in 1969, Hawkwind invented space-rock with a potent, psychedelic mixture of jamming blues, electronica and lights. Some 35 years later, after countless line-up changes, Hawkwind are still going strong, with self-styled captain Dave Brock steering the ship, its crew and its computers into a whole new universe of possibility.
