    Steve Barker is amazing - he's been a massive help with the tape label - he always plays our stuff, and he's given me loads of useful contacts and boosts. Super nice guy too - say hello from me.

    Was very excited to book tickets for Electric Six in Manchester 20th November. Booked the tickets and then noticed on the email it's for 20th November 2019. D'oh

    Hawklords were excellent last night, amazingly tight. Did a couple of reworkings of older hawkwind tracks. Was nice seeing Nik Tuner on stage with them but, how can I say this tactfully... his sax honking and backing vocals were kept quite low in the mix.

    They cancelled the sheffield gig at the last minute, annoyingly

    Wilf Dances like a Christian

    To be fair it was almost as if he was editing himself out a bit. He only did lead vocals on master of the universe and the rest of it was fairly muted, occasional backing vocals. All good really. Similarly with his sax playing, it was pretty tuneless and as always he didn't seem that fussed about keys. But again it was just occasional flurries. More of a sound effect that sustained playing. The whole performance by the band was really tight, intense psych/space rock.

    What a awesome (or I should say terrible!) gig! Saw them at Hare & Hounds Brum, was a sold out gig with a very mixed dancing crowd. I was driving so was powered by Diet Coke only & busted all the moves.

    So glad to see them again, saw them first time at a Unorthodox Paradox festie.

    We took our mate who hadn’t seen them, we all left happy & laughing. What a feeling that is.
