Hawkwind: Into The Woods (Cherry Red Records) Out now



3 out of 5 stars (3 / 5)


This intriguing album very recently dented the mid-20s in the UK album chart. Hawkwind are back and in mighty form. The UK space rock pioneers follow up last year’s Top 40 album “The Machine Stops”, with “Into The Woods”.

Part of the new 13-track record is a continuation of the story begun in “The Machine Stops,” live stage show and concept studio album, which was inspired by E.M. Forster’s Sci-fi classic; a dystopian vision of the future brought to life in characteristic Hawkwind style.  The new album sets the scene “living above the ground and Into the Woods.”

Dave Brock and his merry men in Hawkwind are touring through May, including what is set to be a memorable show at London’s prestigious venue, The Roundhouse on 26th May. It will be 45 years since Hawkwind played at the venue’s historic ‘Greasy Truckers Party’, and recorded their classic hit single “Silver Machine”.

The track listing for “Into The Woods”:
