I have spotted news of an album next year:

DB: "We’ve got a new album coming out next year, a full storyline. The Machine Stops. A true prog concept album." :!:

Source - Mancunion Newspaper Interview published 02/11/2015.

I look forward to it. :P

I don't especially want to rain on your parade but it's hardly new news. They've been talking about this in interviews for months and months - I read the story back in March in response to the news. Originally the album was scheduled to come out last month.

If you want to get totally down with it, let me tell you there is also next week's scheduled solo album by Dave, not to mention a planned live version of Warrior, and a proposed second album from Hawkwind Light Orchestra.

Maybe the band could re-work Silver Machine for inclusion on the new album?

I just took a hit
Hiring a top legal team
And I'm still feeling mean.
If your forced to defend; in a legal fight.
Over copy write

I’ve got a top legal team.
They cost a pretty dime
They charge a lot for their time
It's worse than paying a fine.

I've got a top legal team

I've got a top legal team.

I said
I just took a hit; hiring a top legal team
And I'm still feeling mean.
It feels
Like a bad dream
It's a really bad scene

Your going to know who I've seen
If your forced to defend; in a legal fight.
Over copy write

With a top legal team.

I've got a top legal team

I've got a top legal team.

Perhaps they found a way to update/adapt Calvert's "All The Machines Are Quiet" into the concept album.

No. It is based on "The Machine Stops," a story by EM Forster.

Oh, I knew that, Lost Johnny, but cheers!

I just thought it would've been nice if Calvert's song would have somehow found a way into the new concept album in some sort of way :-) Having said that, I'm not familiar with the novel (just the rough plot).

Perhaps Bob had the E M Forster "Story of the Siren" in mind when he wrote the poem "The Siren" that ended up on the Brock/Calvert Project.

In the maentime I have pre-ordered the new C.D. on Amazon. They promise a next day delivery using Prime on which I have taken out a 28 day free trial period before cancelling.

In a new landmark papal document entitled Amoris Laetitia (Joy of Love), Pope Francis also explores the way technology affects relationships, such as when people stay on their mobile phones during meal times. He saw the fast pace of the online world impacting people’s approach to relationships:

“They believe, along the lines of social networks, that love can be connected or disconnected at the whim of the consumer, and the relationship quickly ‘blocked’.”

The statement seems to tie in quite nicely alongside the theme of the new album.

New review of the album. I like the way they say it sounds like it was airlifted from 1972.

I wouldn't agree with that 1972 comment at all, but still nice to see a positive review that goes beyond the press release info (as 90% of all "reviews" only seem to do these days)!

I wasn’t sure which is the best thread to put this, so hopefully this is appropriate:

Team Rock / Classic Rock do seem to doff their hat to Hawkwind with regular frequency, so this is nice to see listed alongside other releases this year.
