Flesh. Machines. Chemicals. Computers. Sex.
Welcome to the electrosensual world of Hawkwind as presented by Cockwind, the gay space rock tribute.
Your chromium eyeballs—and your synthetic genitals—will be equally pleasured.
Do not panic.
Cockwind presents this sonic preview of tonight’s aural experiment. It’s a catalog of Hawkwind moments, sonically reduced, electronically measured and cybernetically encapsulated for terrestrial humanoids circa 2010.
Watch Cockwind’s Ultimate Hawkwind videos
Hawkwind “Silver Machine”—Their biggest hit. A rock video classic.
Hawkwind “Quark, Strangeness & Charm”—Sean Carnage’s favorite video of all time. Marc Bolan is amazing in the intro (“The group that should have written ‘Star Wars’ but didn’t…SNORRRT”). So is Calvert who wears eyeshadow…& a stuffed hawk!
Nik Turner & I.C.U. feat. Robert Calvert “Master of the Universe”—Hawk icons post-Hawk. Calvert plays keys with a hammer.
Hawkwind “At a Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble”—New Hawkwind…they still rule! They should duet with Gaga
