Dave Brock discusses Hawkwind's new lease of life
Hot on the heels of last year’s Prog Award-nominated The Machine Stops comes a new album from Hawkwind that explores the darker side of nature. We talk to the captain of the ship Dave Brock
When Prog rings at the allotted time for a chat with Dave Brock, the Hawkwind overlord has to be fetched from his home studio where he’s in the middle of recording a backing track. The scene at Hawkwind HQ is a little more hectic than usual because the next day the band are setting off on a short warm-up tour ahead of the May release of their new album, Into The Woods. But once he gets to the phone, Brock is in an upbeat mood and clearly still enthused by Hawkwind’s decades-long mission to expand the boundaries of progressive space rock.
