Posted by a chum on Facebook.....

Through WolfSmiths dedication to the cause and extraordinary ability to sniff out a legend, we have been given exclusive access to Dikmik's personal scrap books and photo collection, by the man himself. So over the next couple of weeks we'll be posting some of the gems we found. Thankyou and massive respect to Dikmik for letting us share this stuff. Enjoy.

It's strange how those pictures make me feel happy, and at the same time sad.
They are beautiful Jimski.
I hope the negatives don't accidentally fall into greedy hands.
Liverpool 1973 is The Space Ritual.
Can't wait to see them developed.
What about live film footage???
Hat's off to Dikmik for his generosity.

I write a Hawkwind News piece for Gonzo News almost every week, and we just got permission to use some of the Dik Mik pics for my next news piece... maybe we can file it under "late news" - as it actually happened 45 years ago!

It's nice to see the old pix, though.

(Gonzo are, by the way, the company that released the last video - Space Rit 2014)

The 2014 Space Ritual live release by GONZO was superb.
I wonder if there's a possibility of any live film footage kicking around from 1973.
Wouldn't matter if it was on super 8mm or whatever other format.
That would be the holy grail Graham and Jimski.
Not from a business point of view but from a 45 year fan's eyes.

^ I suppose most of us wish that could happen. Anyway, it's nice to see HW are starting to kick *** again. Despite the slightly ropey sound, the youtube Loreley 2016 rendition of Shot Down is pretty damned good, and has some nice spacey effects that remind me of the power of the 1981 gigs.

It's around 7 mins long, unlike the recent Thessaloniki version of the song, which is around 11 mins and had great interaction between Haz and Dave, but less electronic effects. By the way - I should mention Tim Blake makes a return, at the Loreley festival gig!

OK, here's a LINK to my write-up of the Dik Mik photos... although you'll have to skim through to page 67 for the start of my Hawk-babble :)

Ectoplasm? :lol:


If you look closely you'll see it's a bandana or headscarf on the head of whoever's standing behind him - Nik, is it?
