An interview with Dave Brock on Radcliffe and Maconie today.

The interview was mainly to talk about Hawkwind returning to the Roundhouse in 2017 on the 26th May, 45 years since the legendary “Greasy Truckers Party”.

They also get Dave to reminisce about the gig back in 1972 and some detail surrounding the Greasy Truckers organisation.

Mark Radcliffe has always had great admiration for Hawkwind in general and Dave in particular.

Listen here from 37:00

Saw it on Twitter. First thought was buy tickets but then thought best check date doesn't clash with anything we are already planning. Sods law - already have tickets for one off John Cale gig in Liverpool - 50th anniversary of the banana album. London and Liverpool in same evening not going to work...
What are the chances?

BD, according to the tfl website you can get from London City Airport to Chalk Farm tube (150m from venue) via DLR/Tube in about three quarters of an hour. Can you get a flight in to City Airport?

Bear in mind Gatwick train station is Southern Railways - they're utterly **** at the moment, even when the staff aren't on strike Southern don't actually employ enough of them to keep a consistent timetable running. If there's a Heathrow + tube option it might be more reliable (but a long trek across the tube network - at least they run consistently, though).

Gatwick express and southern are a nightmare. Heathrow express is much better than the tube and in 18 mins you are in Paddington. Tube to st Pancras, change to northern line and 3 stops later you are there :)

have been looking at flights down from Scotland myself but quite expensive. May look at the train.

As for hotels nearby - google hotels near London Roundhouse - and you will get:

1. Camden lock Hotel 2*
2. Holiday inn London Camden lock 4*
3. Britannia Hampstead Hotel 3*

If the flight price is the decider, which for me it normally is, I wouldnt avoid Gatwick, normally the train service is quick and frequent, even if the concert occurs on a day when there is train hassle, there are frequent coach services into London from the airport, once your in London the tube makes everywhere easy to get too. I'd personally go for Gatwick or Heathrow,,which ever the cheaper. There wont be a huge difference in post arrival travel time / hassle.
I wouldnt really consider Stanstead...Bit North.

Gatwick to london train single about a tenner. I wouldnt buy in advance, just in case of this ongoing industrial action, keep options open. If it transpires to be an announced strike day I might look into booking an advance coach ticket, otherwise Id just grab the next one leaving. Just avoid the train or coach at rush hour, better to grab a coffee or beer untill after 9am (cheaper not so mad busy) because its only really the Brighton line to London commuters that are really hit hard by the train ****, if you allow enough time theres other work arounds. No worries.
