Here we have Nik Turner (vocals, sax, flute), Thomas Crimble (guitar), Terry Ollis (drums), Dave Anderson (bass) and Mick Slattery (guitar). Plus a couple of others (inc. John Greves, and Sam Ollis) and two dancers. While one of them is not so great - a la Stacia from the early days - the younger one has some grace and style. And ... c'mon ... surely any gig is enhanced by a dancer dressed as a schoolgirl! She's a darn sight prettier than the band...
The lighting is reminiscent of those liquid light shows of the early 1970s but now more computer generated fractals than hot oils.
The camera work is uniformly good - mixing a number of different camera angles and concentrating where appropriate of the vocalist, the band, the dancers and the light show. Some effort has gone into the editing and it shows - this is not a "point a single camera at the stage" type of recording.
The band are on top form although - as ever - Nik Turner dominates the proceedings with his costumes, theatricals, vocals and sax/flute work.
The sound quality is very good also. The lack of surround has been mentioned, but the sound is strong and clear. My only gripe is that the drums and bass are sometimes a little weak. The opening chords of Brainstorm (etc) really should make your fillings rattle. However the sound is generally full, deep and rich.
The track listing concentrates on the early period Hawkwind - hurrah! All the space rock classics are here - Brainstorm, Orgone Accumulator, Masters of the Universe, You Shouldn't Do That and Sonic Attack.Read more ›
Oh, and I also wish it were DTS surround, this type of music is really well suited to surround. The stereo mix is quite good in itself, but 5.0 would have been even nicer. (I have no subwoofer, rather 5 big speakers)
The interviews are just a reminder of the deep bitterness between Dave Brock and Nik Turner.
