The version of "Master of the Universe" on Space Ritual. Best continous space-punk song ever.

All of Space Ritual is pretty much a work of art. Dorei... is landmark, too.

Space Ritual has the best cover ever. Except for maybe the Wicked Witch album. Stacia was hot. I wonder whatever happened to her?

What is Space Ritual-Sundown Vol. 2? Is it from the same time as the original Space Ritual or a re-make or something?
Posted: Mar 4, 2009 3:12 pm
Don't know if this qualifies as Sundown, but I found this...

Space Ritual Volume 2 is an archive live album by Hawkwind released in 1985 consisting of a live performance from 1972. The tapes were licensed by Dave Brock to former Hawkwind bass player Dave Anderson for release.
This recording is part of the performance that was processed for disc 2 of Space Ritual. Here it is in its original state, with no edits or overdubs, notable differences being a different middle section to "Orgone Accumulator", "Paranoia" included as the middle section of "Time We Left This World Today" and "Wind Of Change" leading into "7 By 7". "Space Is Deep" and "You Shouldn't Do That" / "Seeing It As You Really Are" from this tape were released on Hawkwind Anthology.
"Electronic No. 1" [listed as "Space"] (Dettmar/Dik Mik) " 2:15
"Orgone Accumulator" (Calvert/Brock) " 8:45
"Upside Down" (Brock) " 2:45
"Sonic Attack" (Moorcock) " 2:50
"Time We Left This World Today" (Brock) / "Paranoia" [unlisted] (Brock) " 13:20
"10 Seconds Of Forever" (Calvert) " 2:10
"Brainstorm" (Turner) " 12:00
"Wind Of Change" [unlisted] (Brock)
"7 By 7" (Brock) " 8:50
"Master of the Universe" (Turner/Brock) " 7:40
"Welcome to the Future" (Calvert) " 2:55

I also have a 4 CD box called Welcome To The Future. It has a CD called Space Ritual Vol. 2, but the track "Wind Of Change" from the above tracklist is not on it.

I found out it was from the same tour as Space Ritual. Just ordered double lp's for the store. Woohoo!

You'll likely find out in this documentary that came out last year:

Part 1/9
Part 2/9
Part 3/9
Part 4/9
Part 5/9
Part 6/9
Part 7/9
Part 8/9
Part 9/9

Unfortunately, Dave Brock asked for his interview segments to be pulled out due to a dispute with Nik Turner, which you can read all about here on Michael Moorcock's website
Posted: Mar 4, 2009 4:41 pm
WOW! Hawkwind joke thread pays!

Glad I asked, thanks!

And due to an unfortunate accident that has temporarily sidelined Nik Turner, you still have a chance to make it to London to see the Hawklords perform Space Ritual '09 with special guests Amon Duul II. Originally scheduled for this weekend at the Roundhouse, the show is rescheduled for June 7th.

"drop acid and go and play, with strobe lights"
I wonder if The Stags would do that?

Just watched that Hawkwind doc last week. Anyone have Robert Calvert's Captain Lockheed and the Starfighters LP? After listening to anecdotes about the guy's loose cannon living, I need to hear this.

Essential purchase, if you're into Hawkwind. Yes, it's a concept record with skits that carry the story between songs. But it's also got a handful of songs with killer riffs; Widowmaker, Ejection, and The Right Stuff (saw Ron Asheton claim this for himself once with Destroy All Monsters)
Posted: Mar 6, 2009 2:06 pm
Captain Lockhead and the Starfighters rules! Calvert's album after that Lucky Leif and Longships is pretty good, too (in a more subdued Eno-prog-pop kinda way). Yeah, essential for any Hawkfan...

Yes. If'n you want a CD-R, drop me a line @ genemullett@hotmail.com. I have about 10 CD-Rs to make this weekend, so one more is no problem.
Posted: Mar 6, 2009 8:27 pm
might be Dik Mik working out the frequency he needed to hit in order to make the audience shit themselves; I don't love Hawkwind quite that much though
Posted: Mar 6, 2009 8:50 pm
there goes friday night.
...wait a second, dude left hawkwind to join a gypsy caravan???
even quitting hawkwind is awesome.
Posted: Mar 6, 2009 8:51 pm
and then he was replaced by hugh lloyd langton? that's almost as awesome a name as hawkwind.
Posted: Mar 7, 2009 2:13 am
uh, Stacia?

Most definitely!
