  'HAWKWIND AT THE ROUNDHOUSE' DVD/VINYL ON THE WAY
31st October 2017



hawkwind

Hawkwind returned to London's legendary Roundhouse venue in Chalk Farm for the first time in forty years on Friday 26th May this year, and it was also forty-five years after the band famously recorded the hit version of ‘Silver Machine’, a show that was captured for posterity on the 'Greasy Truckers Party' album.

Now, the amazing, historic May show is also captured for posterity within a deluxe, celebratory box set, which boasts audio and audio-visual versions of the entire performance. The setlist blends highlights from Hawkwind's last two acclaimed Top 40 albums, 'The Machine Stops' and 'Into The Woods' with classics from the band's past.

Hawkwind founder and leader Dave Brock tells us:

"Yes, it was really good fun playing back at The Roundhouse. After not playing there since 1977, when we had Motörhead support us, it brought back many fine memories for me. Great venue!!"

Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons guested with Hawkwind for encore performances of 'Brainbox Pollution' and 'Silver Machine', after Phil and his band had played a superb support lot earlier. This was also poignant as Motörhead's very first ever gig was at The Roundhouse in July 1975, supporting Dave Greenslade.

The concert is captured across two CDs and the event can also be enjoyed via a DVD, which reveals an amazing lightshow by John Moules. It will be released on 8th December and a multi-disc vinyl edition will follow early in 2018.

MetalTalk were at The Roundhouse gig and you can see exactly what happened right here.

One day, in years to come, a story will emerge about that review, probably when we are all retired, in order to protect the guilty.
