Hawklords CD LORDS1016 5052571068229 7 Oct 16
New album from Hawklords, and featuring a guest vocal appearance from Kim McAuliffe of Girlschool.
Hawklords: Originally formed by Robert Calvert and Dave Brock (of Hawkwind) from the ashes of The Sonic Assassins in 1978.
'FUSION', the new Hawklords album for 2016, is described by the band as, "Exploring the themes of: Sex, Death, Art, Time and Identity". It is another sonic slab of classic British space-rock, with 'real' songs, plus a strangely beautiful electronic and glissando guitar piece from Harvey Bainbridge (synthesiser and vocals) and Jerry Richards (guitars, multi-instrumentalist and vocal). Kim McAuliffe, from Girlschool, guests on the album with a lead vocal on one of the songs called SR-71: a wry slice of commentary regarding the once golden American Dream! Super catchy choruses and rock 'n' roll throughout; Kim's vocal performance is stunning. The album features the inimitable Ron Tree on lead vocals, 'Dangerous' Dave Pearce (from British psych-rock band The Bevis Frond) on drums and Tom Ashurst on bass.
"The Hawklords' refusal to bow down to conventional reality makes them both unique and as up-to-date as tomorrow." Paul Moody - Classic Rock Magazine
"Loud, chaotic, and as unstoppable as a crashing meteor, Hawklords are a force to be reckoned with". Oz Hardwick - R2 Magazine
