    We are old, we are young, we are in this together... New Model Army....they still going?

  • There are a few more dates than the ones posted above because I know they are playing Derby as well, seems strange that they aren't playing the south west I think Dave Brock lives down that way.

    I'm going along to the Wolverhampton gig, also might go to Holmfirth , I'd have to go stocked up with shrooms, there seems something quite obsurd about the original spaced out hippy free festival band playing a cimema in a sleepy west yorkshire town that's main claim to any kind of fame is it's where "last of the summer wine" is filmed ! saying that though certain members of Hawkwind are approaching pensionable age so maybe that's the plan....maybe they're trying to get parts in the next series.

  • yay, i've seen em every year round about december and this year will be no different, except i'm officially old this year. gonna try the holmfirth gig i think. should be a good un, last year in manchester was on a full moon and i totally lost it. had to book into a hotel and the lot, i was absolutely trolleyd. :insane:

  • Love to see 'em if they decide to come down this way (Bristol). First saw them in 1975 on the Space Ritual tour but Yeovil District Council banned Stacia from getting her kit off on stage :mad:

  • Quote from Atomik

    I always thought the topless dancing routine was a bit sad. Was kinda like wandering into a garage where they have page 3 calendars on the wall, and it's like... oh, right.... you missed the 20th century then?



    That's a fair comment, but it was the 1970s and I guess it was all about sci-fi/fantasy/removing yourself from reality for a while, etc rather than just going to see a stripper scenario which I agree, is very sad and demeaning....

  • Stacia was a big girl, and a bit before my time.

    Last time their dancer went topless from my memory was the 1990 tour.
    I do remember a photo with lewd caption in Sounds from that year.
    Julie was quite slender and I would descrbe it as quite tasteful.

    I was doing photos with the band at the time and did a poster sized print of Julie (fully clothed!) for her to give to her mum as a Christmas present. Ah those were the days :whistle:

    Both Hawkwind and the Levellers have played the Rock & Blues Bikers festival near to me in Derbyshire in recent years where they have Wet T Shirt competitions and Strippers as part of the entertainment. I do find that tacky.

    We've drifted a bit off-topic, but there is potential for a new thread here.

  • saw the hawks last nite. seen 'em about 36 times since 1977 and i must say they were really good. they played some stuff i've never seen 'em play before, i'm not saying any more. if your thinking about goin' to see 'em, DO IT!:rockon: :drummer: :carrot:

  • BOING!BOING!BOING!
    Going to see Hawkwind tonight!!! Woohooo!!!!!
    BOING!BOING!BOING!
    :nanarave::nanarave:

  • pheweymejoadie, Boinging indeed!!!

    Just arrived back on planet Earth.
    What a gig!! Granted I was aided in my cosmic odyssey by the finest peak district psilocybin crop but what a journey! I was fully entwined in nebulaic hubble space telescope backdrops to the song 'infinity' and stared in gawping wonder as flourescent creatures of goblinaic and pixie forms danced in slow motion on stage during many aural cascades of musicological ticklage such as Assasin's of Allah. Then there was a nerve tingling, bone jiggling, mind blasting finale with motorhead, among other classics. FANFUCKINTASTIC!!!

    I be a happy fella !!!!
