"The High Confessions" --"Jeremy Lemos is working on new songs this week... Turn up the Hawkwind please!"

This is remark form the High Confessions, a supergroup, with members of the Revolting Cocks (singer Chris Connelly) and Sonic Youth and more. If you like weird spaced out music, these guys really deliver!

Al Jourgensen, of Ministry, Revolting Cock, etc, has professed a liking for HW, although he has never done a cover amongst his many cover versions. :twisted: Al used to be brilliant in the old days, but has descended into booze-sodden mediocrity INHO. Chris Connelly, on the other hand is reaching new heights.

Tiny snippet on BBC 2 series "The 70s".

After dedicating large tracts of the show to Bolan, Bowie, etc. our heroes get in with the intro to "Silver Machine" as they turnedto the miners, 7 mins from the end. Not worth hanging on for.

Well Hawkwind wasn't part of the narrative while Bolan and Bowie were. I thought he played a bit too much Bowie but the program was a bit crap IMO. Hearing Silver Machine out of about 10 other tracks ain't bad and it was quite loud rather than in the background.

Also good to hear the reprise of Surely from the first Supertramp album!

I thought that the background music to the '70's' doc was pretty good, (but I never liked Bowie) started counting the number of songs that I possess in my collection but gave up when I reached 10 or 11.....it was no surprise to hear 'Silver Machine' so doesn't really fit in with the title of this thread!
I didn't catch the excerpt from Supertramp's first album.....always liked that one!

I used to watch a manga style cartoon in the 90's , it had a song in the back ground with a ticking clock and something about a neon skyline , quite good i thought but could'nt find out who played or sang it , in those pre internet days ..

fast forwards 5 years , i buy the xenon codex after not buying music for a few years and there was the tune .

After listening to the end of B.O.T.E. i do wonder how many wild life documentaries and film music i hear is the captains' or one of the crew .

Thanks for the update. I'd heard about this show, but then forgot about it again!

The 70s was pretty good for me, when I drove my first car, rode my first bike, discovered Zep / Floyd / Sabs / Purple / Hawks, and checked out my first free festivals / dope / pirate radio / porn mags.

How can any other decade beat that?

I went to see Lee Herring in Jan this year. During the interval he played Warrior. I spoke to the sound lady and she said it was his choice. When I spoke to him at the end of the gig and congratulated him on his choice he seemed pleased that someone recognised it. Another famous fan perhaps?

Went to see Stewart Lee in Sheff last night and was surprised to hear the familiar intro of Assault & Battery as I shuffled out at the start of the interval. When I came back in NEU! was playing, followed by Psychedelic Warlords.

I'm sure that there's more than synchronicity to this!

EDIT: Just found this... http://www.stewartlee.co.uk/press/writt ... endent.htm

They were once a comedy double act in the 80/90's, known as er... Lee & Herring and had a TV show called Fist of Fun.

So there's Stewart Lee, Jack Black, Noel Fielding, Ade Edmondson, Bill Bailey. Sure there's other comics out there into Hawkwind too. Could do a Hawkwind Comedy Night.

Fairly sure there was a brief snippet of the quieter bit of the intro of Assault and Battery on Homes Under the Hammer. (Well I have to watch something while signed of work!)

not sure if it counts, but my 6 year-old nephew came bounding in the room
chanting over and over " ... Tommy left the squirrel brigade ... "
when I corrected him, his reply was " why would anyone do that ?"
... so young - so much to learn !
