The text will be from Nik's point of view. (Funded by Cleo no doubt.)
Sadly he thinks that he was Hawkwind ignoring all the song writing and musicianship provided by others that fueled the Mothership.
As interesting as this book seems, I won't help pay for Nik's lawyers anymore.

There isn't £70 worth of value in what's being offered.

Nik's also releasing an album it seems, the cover of which bears a certain resemblance to an early Hawkwind release - surely not ?

Another nail in NTs credibility. Longtime fan who loved that era but I suspect this will not reflect it as I remember it.

I've just listened to the 30 second snippets of the album tracks on that link and I have to say (and bearing in mind, it's mostly intros and maybe a bar or two of the tune) ....

.... it sounds quite interesting to me. There's some great guests on it as well. On a purely musical level, I'll give it a listen.

One thing occurs to me though. The cover - there isn't actually any artist/band mentioned and there's "a major US tour this fall in support of the album"

Anyone thinking what I'm thinking? :?

I never expected any less.
Maybe Clepto Recrds will be able to gain the rights to all of Dave's music and
make everybody happy; (once Clepto owns rights to the Hawkwind name.)
Nik Turners Puke Pail would suit me right about now.
It'd be a different ball game if they had Dave Brock's consent

I saw this, seventy quid for 300 pages of bile and revisionism published by Cleopatra, presumably to pay for those expensive lawyers he's using. No thank you Nik, I think I'll pass.

If the promotional guff is anything to go by, it really should be filed under fiction. He's now claiming to have co-written Silver Machine with Dave. I'm actually surprised he didn't claim to write it with Bob in order to airbrush Dave out of the picture, but clearly he has problems, presumably financial.

The album cover is I guess appropriate, trading on former glories as it does. I do have a pang of temptation over it though as he's got Robbie Krieger playing guitar on it.

70 smackers to read about how the genius wrote all the best songs and carried all the rest of the band? No ta. It just reinforces my belief that the guy's world ended when he got the elbow in '76.

Oh, and as for the offer of Barney Bubbles artwork - I had a brief but interesting conversation with the people who look after BB's estate and they want to have words with NT about unauthorised use of his image and work.

I am interested in it, the inserts sound nice.
By the way, is there any topic where i can read what happened between Nick and the band?
