Farewell, Warrior on the Edge of Time



Glyph is worse than some and better than others. He believes that life is just one damned thing after another, that only pop music can save us now, and that mercy is the mark of a great man (but he's just all right). Nothing he writes here should be taken as an indication that he knows anything about anything.

    The Hawkwind stuff is really amazingly good. I was recently reminded of that by a musician friend who’s a huge fan and inspired me to return to those albums that he’s on and it’s really top notch stuff, regardless of genre.Report

      With all fairness, I prefer the studio version of “Space Is Deep” with Dave Brock vocals.
      The live version on A Space Ritual is more up-tempo, which I feel is inappropriate for the piece, and the dual vocals featuring Lemmy ruins it for me.

      That said, much of A Space Ritual is like extended version proto-punk with weird background noises. Good stuff. A classic. Also, best album cover ever.

      I think Doremi was probably the best of the studio stuff with Lemmy on it. I could be overlooking something though.Report

    My heart goes out in particular to Keith Richard. This can’t be an easy time for him.Report
