09.11.2020 - A couple of bit of news to

Cherry Red are delighted to announce a brand-new
studio album by Hawkwind Light Orchestra. Carnivorous
(an anagram of Coronavirus), which follows their
critically acclaimed 2019 album All Aboard The Skylark
and effortlessly resumes the space rock voyage
embarked upon by the full band.
The album was recorded entirely in lockdown during the
coronavirus pandemic, having started life as a solo
project by Dave Brock during the winter of 2019, with
contributions added by the band in January and
February, before the lockdown began. Musically the
stalwart trio of Dave Brock (vocals, lead guitar,
keyboards and synths), Richard Chadwick (drums) and
Magnus Martin (guitar, vocal and keyboards) have
created a tight, futuristic but classic sounding
record that emphasises Dave’s exemplary song writing.
Carnivorous is an album that by design had to be
recorded without a full complement of Hawkwind members
in their usual style. However, it is a testament to
the contributing members’ proficiency to end up with
an album that bears all the hallmarks of classic
Hawkwind while recorded under such testing
Dyna-mite is a cruising and catchy opener, complete
with memorable guitar solos, electronic flourishes and
laced with Dave’s trademark commentary on human
behaviour. There is plenty of timeless rock for fans
to enjoy; from the pulsating rhythms of Void Of
Wasteland to the free-spirited groove of Repel
Attract. On side 2, Model Farm Blues fuses the band’s
psychedelic blueprint with classic blues and there is
even a tongue in cheek nod to the recent pandemic in
Lockdown (Keep Calm) and a more serious note on The
Virus, while the heartfelt Forgotten Memories, about
the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s, is one of the
album’s most powerful songs. At every stage of
Carnivorous you can hear the fifty years of experience
at Hawkwind’s fingertips, boundaries they’re still
Hawkwind’s 50th anniversary celebrations were due to
continue throughout 2020 with headline slots at
festivals throughout the summer, Dave Brock solo shows
at HRH Prog in London and Sheffield, and their annual
Hawkfest event taking place in Devon on 28th-30th
August. The band are monitoring the situation and will
proceed with live shows as soon as possible.

advice....HRH Prog, which Dave Brock was headlining in
Sheffield and London, has been postponed...New dates

07.01.2020 Martin Griffin RIP
message from the family of Martin Griffin....A true
gentleman and friend who we will all sorely miss..
Martin Griffin, legendary Hawkwind drummer has passed
away peacefully on 06/01/2020 following a short
illness surrounded by his loved ones.
joined the band for 2 stints between the years of 1978
and 1982 and played on albums such as Sonic attack and
Church of Hawkwind, as well as headlining with the
band at Glastonbury festivals Pyramid stage in 1981.
As is apparent from Social Media and the outpouring of
emotion, Martin has touched many peoples lives and was
loved and respected by all.
Martin had worked in and around the music industry
most of his life, playing drums alongside artists such
as Ark, Half Human band, Richard Strange and of course
recorded many rising talents such as Elvis Costello
and ABC at his recording studio in Cornwall and
pioneered a successful music sponsorship company
working with major artists around the globe.
He was quite simply the most wonderful human being and
will be deeply missed by so many. His family
respectfully asks for privacy during this difficult
So Sunday 19th July 2020 #RMFair2020 sees the return
of the Grooverider Stage and without further ado here
are the bands confirmed so far...
They need no introduction and return to The Fair as
Grooverider Stage headliners, (and it will be their
50th anniversary too!) they are space rock legends and
spacelord warriors on the edge of time Hawkwind!
Joining the Hawks we have those psychedelic Icelanders
The Vintage Caravan and we also bring you the new
masked psychedelic desert rock of 'THE NEW DEATH CULT!
From Canada we have blues psych rockers Crown Lands!
And our last announcement for the Grooverider today -
They owned the Rising Stage last year as the people's
choice and they will be playing the Grooverider in
2020. They are currently out supporting previous
Ramblin' headliners The Cult, they are the UK's very
own rockers and rollers Piston!
Red are delighted to announce the brand-new studio
album by the legendary Hawkwind.
All Aboard The Skylark
All Aboard The Skylark is the band’s 32nd studio album
and a storming return to their space rock roots. It is
released on 25th October 2019 on vinyl, digital and CD
(along with a second bonus disc) Acoustic Daze.
2019 marks the beginning of the band’s 50th
Anniversary year and All Aboard The Skylark picks up
effortlessly from their conceptual Top 40 charting
albums The Machine Stops (2016) and Into The Woods
Musically the solid quartet of Dave Brock (guitar,
vocals, keyboards), Richard Chadwick (drums), Niall
Hone (bass, keyboards) and Magnus Martin (guitar,
vocals) have created a tight, psychedelic groove that
runs through the spine of the album, but embraces each
musician’s individual talents along the way.
Opener Flesh Fondue is a classic Hawkwind space rock
number; alien creatures feeding on the inhabitants of
planets, carried by Brock’s characteristic guitar and
vocals and underpinned by Chadwick’s superb rhythm and
hypnotic drum fills. Nets Of Space is a bass driven
trip, complimented by swirling guitar loops and
rhythmic drumming while the conceptual Last Man On
Earth and We are not Dead…Only Sleeping lead us
headlong into the free-spirited psychedelic groove of
All Aboard The Skylark. The contemplative 65 Million
Years Ago, with haunting Brock vocals is followed by
the melodic lament, In the Beginning, which leads to
the expansive and multi-layered The Road To…, and
closes with The Fantasy of Faldum, (based on a Hermann
Hesse fairytale). This is an exciting and unmissable
addition to the Hawkwind canon.
Following a live tour, when Hawkwind opened their own
shows with an acoustic set, the band went into the
studio and recorded Acoustic Daze, acoustic versions
of some classic Hawkwind tracks.
Including Psy Power, Down Through The Night and We
Took The Wrong Step Years Ago, this shows another
fascinating side to the band. Stripping back the songs
to their roots doesn’t dilute any of the raw power,
highlighting the depth and musical perception that
Hawkwind have forged over the past fifty years.
Acoustic Daze will be released as part of the CD set
of All Aboard The Skylark and as a stand alone vinyl
edition – limited to 1000 copies worldwide!
The 50th Anniversary celebrations this year have
already seen the band headline the acoustic stage at
Glastonbury and play a headline slot at the metal
festival Graspop in Belgium, alongside a host of other
UK and European festivals, including a free Easter
festival for their Hawkwind Passport Holder fan club..
They’ve been nominated for awards and are planning a
special 50th Anniversary Hawkfest for the end of the
year. There will be a nationwide tour in November
culminating in a show at the prestigious Royal Albert
Hall on November 26th.

We are really happy

The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board found in
Hawkwind's favour and has just issued an order which
sustained our opposition.
Turner CANNOT use the name Hawkwind!
Its been over three hard years, which has drained our
energies and resources......We are so glad its over
and the correct verdict has finally been reached.
The members of
Hawkwind would like to thank you all for your
support in what has been a very stressful few years!
Hopefully we can now put all this behind us and get
on with other more creative and positive stuff!

06 .06.17 - Rose RIP
with great sadness that I have to let you know that
our dear friend Rose passed away today.
you will remember her and Margaret on the gates and
doors of every Hawkfest and HawkEaster.
She was a kind and beautiful woman, for whom,
nothing was too much trouble.
She loved Hawkwind and all the extended family,
knowing many of the regulars by name.. She was
fiercely loyal and stuck with the band through good
times and bad, offering support where it was most
couldn't begin to list all the work Margaret and
Rose put in behind the scenes to make things run
She asked us to let you all know when the time
came and she was talking about the Hawkwind family
right until the end.
We managed to send her a running commentary of
life on the bus on the recent dates. She was
always eager to hear where we were and what we
were all doing.
Many of you brought flowers and gifts for her at
HawkEaster, she knew it would be her last one and
was greatly touched by the gesture. She asked us
to thank each and every one of you....She had a
fabulous time and certainly felt the love.
I can't write much more at the moment, but we
would all love to hear any stories or tributes you
wish to leave, or any photos you wish to post. (We
would especially like the one of Rose wearing the
Hawkwind crown at HawkEaster......someone took a
photo, but we cannot remember who). This would be
a great comfort to her husband Roger, who many of

The Woods" will be released by Cherry Red Records on
the 5th May
In many ways, it is the perfect sequel to last
year’s acclaimed concept studio album and live stage
show, The Machine Stops, which was inspired by E.M.
Forster's Sci-fi classic, a dystopian vision of the
future brought to life with characteristic Hawkwind
Warm-up dates for Hawkwind in mid-March are dubbed
‘A Glimpse Into Greenness’, which gives some
indication of the conceptual and lyrical themes
behind the band’s new album. To promote Into The
Woods, Dave Brock and Co. will be touring through
May, culminating in what is set to be a memorable
show at London’s prestigious venue The Roundhouse on
26th May. It will be 45 years since Hawkwind played
at the venue’s historic ‘Greasy Truckers Party’ in
The Roundhouse and first recorded ‘Silver Machine’!

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
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
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”.

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

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
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
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
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.

19.05.12 - Some news regarding original
Hawkwind bassist John Harrison
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
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:

The Earth", their first in five years.

through crushing visceral space rock, doom driven
poetry, whimsical mantras and imagination opera. An

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 sciencefiction
writer Michael Moorcock was an occasional

with an additional brain tumour. Over the weeks the

She was admitted to Wisdom Hospice on Thursday and
Yesterday morning, with her husband Nigel by her

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
Our thoughts are with her husband Nigel and her

04.10.09 - More
news regarding Huw Lloyd Langton
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
Sadly we need to tell you all that Huw is very ill

doctors are working to find out more and in the
meantime he has been put on dialysis at The Dorset
Please send all your thoughts, prayers and good
vibes to Huw and Marion to get them through this.

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
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
tomorrow, the 8th September marks the first
anniversary of the sad passing of Hawkwind

honour whenever and wherever you happen to be.
Thanks for reading
