“This is the last but one”
So reads the cryptic message on the back of PXR5, the final Hawkwind studio release of the 1970's, the final release with Robert Calvert and the final release on the Charisma label. It's also the final release of season 1 of Hawkbinge but not the final Hawkbinge release of year – watch this space…
In this episode Matt & Andy explore the music of 1978, the somewhat nebulous status of the band at this point, choose tracks for the Sessions and Master Playlists on Spotify, offer up some track selections of their own with their turntable picks and, above all, attempt to resist the temptation to use that album cover as a guide for wiring their houses,
This episode also marks the release of volume 3 of the Hawkbinge Sessions playlist on Spotify, including such bands as Mythic Sunship, Steve Hackett, Killing Joke, Lee 'Scratch Perry, Jan Hammer and The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble alongside Matt's favourite Hawkwind picks from Quark, Hawklords and PXR5.
Season 2 of Hawkbinge coming in 2022.
Happy Christmas to all of our listeners everywhere!
