    Ep 14: Choose Your Masques

    It's a monster 2 hours of Hawkbinge this time around - Matt has chosen his masque, which side will he be on? Find out here, as Hawkbinge deep dives into 1982’s Choose Your Masques…
    As ever, we look at what was going in the music world in 1982 and take stock of where the band is at. Matt gives his considered response to the album and he and Andy go through it in depth. They also check out the artwork and take a look at the expanded double album reissue, and consider The Return of Silver Machine. The turntable selections this time around also mean that volume 4 of the Hawkbinge Sessions playlist is now complete and released on Spotify, featuring Matt’s picks from the last Levitation, Sonic Attack, Church of Hawkwind and Choose Your Masques alongside the music that he and Andy have been listening to over the past few months.

    Ep 13: Church of Hawkwind

    Ep 13: Church of Hawkwind

    The Church of Hawkbinge opens it's doors once again, and everyone is welcome!

    Yes, the oddity that is Church of Hawkwind in the focus this time. Regardless of whether one considers it "Hawkwind canon" or not, (Wikipedia says it is, and that's good enough for Hawkbinge), it's a key moment in Hawk history and a really fascinating album to deep dive into.

    In this episode Andy & Matt start by recapping the global sensation that was the Hawkbinge Sonic Attack Ultimate Death Match Tournament in the company of a very special guest, and then look at the big releases of 1982 and the state of play following the release of Sonic Attack that leads to this album being made, as well as checking out not just the album artwork but also the booklet that accompanied it. And, as ever, Matt gives his considered take on this rather interesting  experiment from Dave and the band.

    Oh, and the 40 year old mystery of "Tim" is finally solved...

    Ep 12: Sonic Attack

    Ep 12: Sonic Attack

    Do not panic!

    Hawkbinge returns with the long-awaited Sonic Attack episode. The record label has changed, so has the line-up and so has the music. Ginger has gone. So has Tim. And Keith, whoever he was. But Mike is in! And so is Martin! And the band are talking and sounding tough. What will Matt make of this much harder-edged variant of the Hawks?

    Do not waste time blocking your ears!

    In this episode Andy & Matt look back on the new releases from 1981, , choose tracks for the Master and Sessions playlists on Spotify and take a good look at who is occupying the Hawkwind drum stool these days...

    Your only protection is flight!

    And, of course, they deep-dive into the music of Sonic Attack and generally think only of themselves…

    Ep 11: Levitation

    Ep 11: Levitation

    Boom! Hawkbinge kicks off season 2 big time with "Levitation", the album by Ginger Baker's Air-Hawks. The first album of season 2, the first album of the 1980's and the first, and only studio album on the Bronze label.

    In this episode Andy & Matt look back on the new releases from 1980, check out the renewed Galactico-filled state of the band, choose tracks for the Master and Sessions playlists on Spotify and take a good look at who is occupying the Hawkwind drum stool these days...

    And, of course, they deep-dive into the music of Levitation and get Matt's response to yet another new direction for the band.

    Ep 10.5: The Master Playlist So Far... 70's

    Ep 10.5: The Master Playlist So Far... 70's

    The Hawkbinge Master Playlist on Spotify is made up of one track from each album as selected by Matt, our first-time listener. While we wait patiently for season 2 to begin (it's very close now...) we take a little look back at the tracks Matt chose from the 1970's albums and revisit the discussion we had around each one... We hope you enjoy, whether you agreed with Matt's picks or not...

Great show guys.
I like listening to the two of you and your takes on Hawkwind’s music from an old fan and a new student.
I have followed them, starting in the early 1980s, when I found out Lemmy was in the band before Motörhead.
My first album was Space Ritual, and I have been a big fan ever since.
Thank you and Onward you go!

Scott Listener ,

Great New Show!

I have never heard of Hawkwind before. I had no idea they were even a thing until I found out about this podcat and now I am excited to dig into their music because our hosts have such a passion for their music. Well done!
