Sonic Attack! Do Not Panic!

I’ve been on a bit of a “Hawkwind” kick again lately. Crazed UK, heavy riffling, acid band that peaked in the early 1970s. I’ve really got my imagination going. Check out this stuff. How insane would it be if someone was to take a page from this stuff and create some kind of neo-psychedelic space rock extravaganza around here? Mine you these were hippies fueled mostly on acid and totally out of their fucking noggins.

“Silver Machine” would be the what they’re best known for.

Some excerpts from a really cool documentary on the band and during their most interesting time when that still had Lemmy (from Moterhead) and the amazon nude dancer Stacia.

Found this in concert footage from later on in ’84.. Different line up, but still very entranced in the spirit of a live show in an outdoor festival.
