Avis sur l’album

Frequently dismissed as just another ragbag gathering of live cuts and outtakes, Zones is, in fact, one of Hawkwind's more fascinating albums, featuring cuts orginally scheduled for a follow-up to 1980's mighty Levitation album, and catching them, too, at the tail end of the legendary Ginger Baker's brief stint with the group. Recorded in December 1980, three studio tracks date from the Baker years, the brief electrobabble of "Zones," "Dangerous Vision," and "Running Through the Back Brain." None of them exactly tax the old master, although the deeply synthipopped latter makes some intriguingly funky demands. But two tracks recorded live at Lewisham Odeon during the band's December 1980 U.K. tour offer a stronger indication of Baker's strengths (the remainder of the show can be found on the This Is Hawkwind, Do Not Panic collection): the dramatic atmospherics of "The Island" and an excellent cruise through "Motorway City" (released simultaneously as a U.K. single). The soul of the album, however, lies in five tracks recorded two years later, with Martin Griffin now in the drumseat, and past collaborator Michael Moorcock returning to lead the band through a positively brutal "Sonic Attack." Never regarded as one of Hawkwind's brightest patches, these excerpts from an October 1982 concert at Bristol's Colston Hall go some way toward rehabilitating its reputation and suffer more from less-than-perfect sound (and a somewhat dreary churn through "Brainstorm") than anything else. Newer material — "Utopia 84" and "Dream Worker" from the newly released Choose Your Masques — is of considerably higher value.

Any sci-fi fan with long memories probably remembers those 1970s' DAW paperback editions of Michael Moorcock's sword-and-sorcery novels, with their images of heavily armored, very muscular warriors, carrying large swords and standing against eerie land- and starscapes. Take that imagery, throw in some terminology and names seemingly lifted from the Marvel Comics of the era (The Watcher, etc.) and particle physics articles of the period, translate it into loud but articulate hard rock music, and that's...
