Nik Turner's Hawkwind


Amoeba San Francisco - November 23rd @ 2:00pm



The founding member of pioneering space-rock band Hawkwind returns to his intergalactic roots with his new album Space Gypsy, which features all new material.


Space Gypsy boasts guest appearances by fellow Hawkwind alumnus drummer Simon House and Gong guitar legend Steve Hillage, along with Nicky Garratt of the UK Subs, Jurgen Engler of German industrial band Die Krupps, and Jeff Piccinini of '70s punk icons Chelsea. 

Nik Turner was a founding member of Hawkwind during what has been considered their most commercially successful and critically acclaimed period for the band from 1970 to 1976. He wrote/co-wrote some of the group's most popular songs such as “Brainstorm” and “Master Of The Universe." Hawkwind's fourth and possibly most popular album The Space Ritual Alive in Liverpool and London was recorded in 1972 (released in May 1973). Reaching #9 in the UK album charts and #179 in the Billboard Top 200, the double-record was recorded during the tour to promote the band's Doremi Fasol Latido (third) release. The Space Ritual show attempted to create a full audio-visual experience. The performances featured dancers, lightshow by Liquid Len, and poetry recitations by Robert Calvert. Nik Turner recently brought his version of the historic show to the US shores, recreating the magic once again.
