‘Treworgey Tree Fayre 1989’ [Release Date 08/02/2010]
Hawkwind formed in 1969 forming part of the Ladbroke Grove artistic community. Hawkwind first appeared as Group X or Hawkwind Zoo before finally shortening the name to Hawkwind and securing a recording deal with Liberty Records. The band were led by former busker Dave Brock and whilst many other members have come and gone over the bands thirty six year existence Dave Brock remains in sole command of the band that blazed a trail for what became known as Space Rock.
Initially the band built up an underground following by appearing free at many high profile festivals and events. The band enjoyed massive success both here and in America during the seventies with hit singles like 'Silver Machine' and albums such as 'Space Ritual' and 'Quark Strangeness and Charm' and managed to almost reinvent themselves at the end of the seventies briefly as the Hawklords before reverting back to Hawkwind for the eighties and beyond.
This show was filmed and recorded at the Treworgy Tree Fayre in July 1989 and the band line up at the time included Dave Brock, Simon House, Richard Chadwick, Harvey Bainbridge and Alan Davey. Special guests include Bridget Wishart and Steve Barnard. This 2-CD set is the soundtrack to the live DVD released in 2008 which contains the full audio portion of the concert and amongst the set list, the band performs key tracks such as 'Hassan I Sabha', 'Damnation Alley', 'Needle Gun', 'Ejection', 'The Golden Void' and 'Brainstorm'.
