Hawkwind / Hawklords

Hawkwind / Hawklords
Country
England
Profile
Hawkwind is an English rock band and one of the earliest space rock groups. The band was formed by ex-busker and blues man Dave Brock in Ladbroke Grove, England, who intended to marry simple three-chord rock with experimental electronic music. He cites his influences for the band at the time as The Moody Blues, Steve Miller Band and the krautrock scene of Kraftwerk, Neu! and particularly Can. The band was formed in 1969, and although it has been subject to numerous line-up changes it is still led by Brock. The early line-up featured Brock on vocals and rhythm guitar, Huw Lloyd-Langton on lead guitar, Terry Ollis on drums, Thomas Crimble on bass, Nik Turner on saxophone, and Dik Mik on synthesizer. Since that time, the name Hawkwind has become virtually synonymous with Space Rock, and their long-time association with science fiction writer Michael Moorcock has cemented their place in the genre. For a time during the late 70s, contractual difficulties resulted in Brock and associates using the name Hawklords. Alan Davey, bassist from 1984 - 2007, has also led his own projects featuring other Hawkwind-related musicians.
