This 1979 album finds the group at a peak - different than their early 'space punk' peak, but featuring good playing and pieces and Tim Blake on synths, at a peak nevertheless.

"Recorded, of course, during Hawkwind's 1979 U.K. tour, Live '79...

"On Friday, May 26, 2017, Hawkwind returned to London's legendary Roundhouse venue in Chalk Farm for the first time in 40 years. It was also some 45 years after the band famously performed at the venue (captured for posterity on the Greasy Truckers Party album), where they recorded the hit version of 'Silver Machine'. Six months on, this amazing, historic show is captured for posterity within a deluxe, celebratory box set which boasts audio and audio-visual versions of the entire performance...

Recorded on the support tour for their release "Chronicles of the Black Sword", which was a good one. This comes in an expanded edition and given the superb "Mark Powell treatment", with a booklet filled with photos and liner notes..

"The album, originally recorded in 1995 on Hawkwind s Alien 4 tour and was released the following year on the Emergency Broadcast label. The album was a masterpiece and featured the charismatic Ron Tree on vocals, along with a line-up of Dave Brock...

Brand new, studio album from the band who basically invented the spacerock genre. There's a lot of variations on the sound, but almost all of it can be traced back to the Hawks! The lineup is fluid, but names here include leader Dave Brock plus many...

Live recordings from 1972. Great music, not great sound.

"The album, originally recorded in 1977 & 1978 and released in 1979, was the band's final masterpiece for Charisma records that perfectly embraced the influence of the musical New Wave to deliver one of the most effective albums released during...

This has been out for a little while now, but every time we have ordered it from the label, they've been sold out. This is hugely expanded reissue of one of Hawkwind's great albums from just after their classic U.A. period, originally released in 1977...

A beautifully remastered, bonus track & liner note filled reissue of the band's early best, at a great price! This is the early, classic double live album. An orgy of wild, trippy, space metal churning!

New, 2016 release by the unstoppable Hawkwind!
"A concept studio album and a live stage show, The Machine Stops is based on E.M. Forster's Sci-fi classic. His dystopian vision of the future is brought to life with characteristic Hawkwind style. An atmospheric, musical interpretation beginning in tunnels deep beneath the earth, where every need is controlled and catered for by the machine. The struggle to escape and find a way to reach the outer surface is a utopian dream, which could prove to be the...

"This is a 3 CD set comprising all three of Hawkwind’s albums originally released by the 'RCA Active' label in 1981 & 1982 – “Sonic Attack”, “Church of Hawkwind” and “Choose Your Masques”.
These recordings saw a streamlined Hawkwind enjoy a consistent period of album chart success and saw them gain a new audience of younger fans. The band’s live concerts of the period were memorable affairs and the trio of albums released in this short period remain high in the affections of Hawkwind’s loyal fan base.

For some unfathomable reason, this fine 1975 album, their sixth, has never really been generally reissued and no one really has explained why. It certainly is not because of the quality of the material, because this is considered one of their finest by many and also considered the last of their string of total classics from the early 70s.
This release has the classic lineup of Dave Brock, Nik Turner, Lemmy, Simon House, Simon King and Alan Powell, and was the last album with Lemmy. This is newly...

You get one track by Roy, 3 by the Hawks, 3 by Here & Now and - possibly most interestingly - 2 by The Enid, not so far removed from their late 70s glory and the earliest film footage of them that I am aware of.

Tubby Hayes was one of the first wave of English hard-bop musicians of the 1950's and 60's and one of the top tenor sax players as well during the 20 years of his career. He never went into free-jazz, but he swung hard and he definitely influenced many...


For those of you interested in European and especially Brit-jazz, Tubby Hayes and Ronnie Scott (who also appears here) are basically 'ground zero' in terms of a original, British jazz sound.

"January 30th 2105 marks the anniversary of what would have been Tubby Hayes' 80th birthday. Undoubtedly THE ultimate British jazz legend, Hayes' untimely death, aged 38, in 1973 ended what had been a truly remarkable 23 year career, and, although long...

"To save you a short trip to Google, “parrhesia” means “to speak everything” and, by extension, “to speak freely,” “to speak boldly,” or “boldness.” Without getting bogged down in intellectual scaffolding, what Stephen Haynes, Joe Morris, and Warren...

Charles Hayward is, of course, best known for his drumming and vocalizing feats with This Heat, Camberwell Now and Quiet Sun, but in addition to doing some improvising work, he has released a number of solo albums contsructed out of his excellent...

"Following the reissue of the entire recorded output of South London-based experimental act This Heat and its successor, Camberwell Now, Modern Classics Recordings holds the lens up to a special split album created by one of the driving forces behind those groups - drummer Charles Hayward - in collaboration with Italian musician Gigi Masin, whose looping, rhythmic, electronic compositions have seen his cult following grow in his four decades as a recording artist. Originally released on Belgium's Sub...

"Robin Hayward plays microtonal tuba in Catherine Christer Hennix's ensemble; Stop Time is his first composition to be released on Important Records. Stop Time was commissioned for a festival of the same name that took place in Leuven, Belgium, in 2013. It is the first piece to use a subset of the three-dimensional physical version of the Hayward Tuning Vine software, invented in 2012, as a musical score. The harmonic space implied within the four cubes contained within the subset, based on prime numbers...

About a year and a half ago, I caught Miho conducting her amazing big band, which is a cross between a jazz big band and a string quartet. I was truly impressed! She's really, really something and if you are interested at all in large scale arranging and like jazz, you need to hear her. This is her second album.
Miho Hazama - conducting, piano on tracks 6 & 7
Gil Goldstein - accordion on track 3
Joshua Redman - soprano, tenor sax on track 8
Cam Collins - alto sax, clarinet...


The only solo album by the late guitarist of Parliament/Funkadelic, whose work enlivens so many of those early classic Funkadelic albums (think "Maggot Brain"). I believe that this is the first time it has appeared on CD and while it is nowhere near as...

A few days before the date I learned that Louis Moholo was in town and asked him if he could join in. So, on a Sunday afternoon, at the auditorium of the Stedelijk Museum, we recorded Pleasure. As you can hear, Louis picked it up marvelously. Together ...

"Less than a year after the release of “Holy Water Pool” – Heaters’ debut, a crushing, revelatory psycho-surf-rock anointment-as-album – there are no apparent signs of distress to the engine that powers this Michigan-made vehicle of sound. To the contrary, Heaters are operating at a higher horsepower than ever before, as evidenced by the 2016 release of “Baptistina.”
“Baptistina” glimmers to a greater degree than anything Heaters have previously unleashed, a full-spectrum sheen that shines across the..

"In the year 2015, it may be that only foolishness or forgetfulness can excuse being surprised by the pace and power of a rock and roll machine coming out of the holy state of Michigan. Yet such is the power of the perpetual energy expressed throughout “Holy Water Pool,” the new full-length album by Heaters on Beyond Beyond Is Beyond.

If there’s an offer of salvation within “Holy Water Pool,” its one that comes with a catch: you have to risk drowning. Drowning in this case brought on by the...

"“Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose,” sayeth the French. Just more than a year ago, Heaters shepherded the release of “Baptistina” into the world, which itself followed their debut album, “Holy Water Pool,” by less than a year. Now, the Michigan-made music machine is set to lay claim to a new parcel of mountainous terrain, in the form of their latest release on Beyond Beyond Is Beyond, entitled “Matterhorn.”
It’s a relentless pace, made all the more impressive not by the infrequency with...
