Nik Turner's Hawkwind | Amoeba Music: Free In-Store Mini Concerts

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.”  Their album, The Space Ritual Show, attempted to create a full audio-visual experience. The performances featured dancers, a light show 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.
