Live 1985-1995 = 3 DVD = (DVD)
The first ever DVD box-set release to feature one of the giants of rock music - Hawkwind. Three discs with spectacular live performance as follows:
CHRONICLE OF THE BLACK SWORD
The success of Hawkwind during the seventies allowed them the privilege of meeting many of the artists and writers who had influenced them. Most prominent of these was Sci-Fi writer Michael Moorcock, whose sword and sorcery 'Elric' series had been the primary source for the bands' Chronicle of the Black Sword' album. Filmed in December 1985 at the Hammersmith Odeon, `Chronicle' does more than justice to what was a truly epic performance from the undisputed `kings of acid-rock overkill'. The narration is provided by Michael Moorcock. Packed with suitably obscure psychedelic images and bizarre OTT stage antics, also included is the four number encore where Moorcock performs on stage with the band.
NIGHT OF THE HAWKS
Recorded live at the Gaumont Theatre, Ipswich in spring 1984 this superb film of the 'Hawks' features their most eccentric of front men Nik Turner in fine form. Resembling a creation from one of Dr.Who's least convincing episodes, Turner wanders around the stage like a maniac, motor -mouthing his way through what is a truly impressive set of some of Hawkwind's best material. The additional laser graphics and wild editing could not have been more suitable. Prepare yourself for an audio/visual Brainstorm.
LOVE IN SPACE
Love in Space was shot during Hawkwind's Alien 4 tour in 1995 and is comprised of the highlights taken from four venues - Liverpool Royal Court, Manchester Academy, Bristol Colston Hall and Brixton Academy London. It shows the band at their most creative and over the top, with then front man Ron Tree, wearing a vast array of bizarre costumes designed specially for the tour, alongside various performance artists. The band are paired down to a four piece but have lost none of the raw power one associates with archetypal Hawkwind, as they rip through numbers both old and new, including some true classics. With the advantage of digitally re-mastered sound you not only get to see Hawkwind at their most outrageous you also get to hear them exactly
