not new music tuesdays

Hawkwind - Doremi Fasol Latido (1972, United Artists)

According to back of the jacket, this record is “a collection of ritualistic space chants, battle hymns and stellar songs of praise as used by the family clan of Hawkwind on their epic journey to the fabled land of Thorasin.” Even Astal, High Priestess of Xenon Mentet 12753 had this to say about it : “La beslas pan hrak lelo hrakasosas kamavor na.”

This is Hawkwind’s third album, but the first featuring the ‘classic’ lineup with the new rhythm section of Lemmy on bass and Simon King on drums. This change seemed to make the jazz influence of the previous records a little less obvious while emphasizing the driving rock aspect of the group’s sound. Recordings of a few shows from the tour supporting this album resulted in Hawkwind’s masterpiece, and arguably the greatest live album ever, 1973’s double lp Space Ritual.

I recommend bong rips and excessive volume, as I’ve yet to find a person that didn’t dig this record under these circumstances!

Intresting fact, in 1991 Michael Moorcock introduced Jerome to Mick Stanley while Mick was on the set of Bedrock Tv. They chatted for a bit about investing into Quasar and eventually leading to bed where the 1992 Hawkwind album Electric Teepee was conceptualized. Of course Michael Moorcock goes on to write Eternal Champion based off the early struggles of a psych-country musician with cleft pallet.

11:43 it actually wasnt anything special, it was around in the 90's and was a bunch of dudes in there 30's talking about how much better the scene was in the 90's and talking about being punk rock, yet then they would write reviews of hawkwind, lame hair metal and other non cool shit.
so yeah, pretty much the same as the blogosphere

i still have 6 or 8 copies of buzzmonger. they were creative people making something cool, fun, and informative. i would not compare it to the blogosphere, where we have too many opinionated jerkoffs typing stupid letters into stupid boxes.

what exactly do you mean 223? were you the only person that has ever heard this band until today? how did they turn into motorhead? one of the seven guys in the band left and started motorhead while hawkwind continued to exist.

Acid Mothers Temple, Bardo Pond or Bark Psychosis would all be excellent choices.
