New Career
Comments & Submitter Name
"Lemmy Kilminster""Lemmy went on to start "Motorhead". A quintessential heavy metal band. Lemmy said after being fired, "I was happy to be sacked from Hawkwind, they didn't have any bollocks anyhow."" - Wade Brock
"Lemmy""After getting sacked from Hawkwind, this dude only went-on to fame and well deserved fortune, as he carved his way through Middle America's keg parties as the phenom known as Motorhead. Although I'm not a fan, you must acknowledge the man's insight into what makes "Testosterone U.S.A." tick" - princejellyfish

Comments & Submitter Name
"The Watcher""A great cut (written by Lemmy), that finishes a very trippy album, it somehow dont mesh with the theme. Perhaps, the rest of the band was "watching" Lemmy's razor-wire beak slashing through the acid-eggshell that was Hawkwind." - princejellyfish

"Quark, Strangeness and Charm"
The Lyrics:
Einstein was not a handsome fellow
Nobody ever called him Al
He had a long moustache to pull on
It was yellow
I don't believe he ever had a girl
One thing he missed out in his theory
of time, space and relativity
Is something that makes it very clear
He was never gonna score like you'n'me
He didn't know about Quark, Strangeness and Charm
Who They Mention:
Albert Einstein

Song Lawsuits:

Founding members David Brock and Nik Turner had a court battle over the band's name Hawkwind. Dave Brock stated that he came up with the name deriving it from mythology. Nik Turner stated that it was a nickname given to him because his nose was like that of a beak, and he had tremendous flatulence, causing someone to call him Hawkwind, and he therefore name the band. I go with Dave Brock in every way. He is Hawkwind.

"Possesion "
It was told to me about a concert played by Hawkwind in the UK in the seventies that because the band being constantly harrased by the police for suspsion of drug possesion, that Nik Turner (saxaphonist) hid a good quantity of Heroin in his saxaphone, and pretended to play throughout the show in order to avoid being busted.

Backwards Messages:

"Assult & Battery (The Golden Void)"
In the song "Assult & Battery" by Hawkwind the first stanza of lyrics is actually a Longfellow poem. It is a beautiful song.
Submitted by: Wade Brock

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Free/Benefit Concerts in the UK and Europe."
The band Hawkwind has and continues to perform gigs for free, never forgetting their fans and supporters and benefit concerts (recently for the school where his son attended). Their gigs are often a crowd of glassy eyed space cadets, but they are always child friendly and family oriented. They also do a lot of benefits for the good of the planet. Good Job.
Submitted by: Wade Brock

Music With a Warning Label:

"On the back side of the album (import copies anyway), there are actually two warning labels. A red sticker the size of a baseball card carries the message that the sticker NOT be removed (and covers most of the artwork). Below that, is the warning "This wiring can seriously damage your health"
