Hawkwind - Quark, Strangeness and Charm

For Jose R. Hawkwind's strange 1977 masterpiece, with a streamlined, razor sharp sound and songs full of Ballardian imagery. This ain't "Hall of the Mountain Grill", but it's no less powerful or plain fuckin' rocking.

Don't boo me, boo history


  1. Thanks! Awesome.


  2. The 1si Hawkwind LP I heard. I bought it, aged 10 (!), after seeing 'em play the title track on Marc Bolan's (short lived) TV show in 1977 & it's still one of my favourites. Strange, on reflection, to hear them embracing the new wave so readily, bits of it sound like The Stranglers FFS!
