iTunes Editors’ Notes

A founding member of Hawkwind, Nik Turner gave the group some of its avant-garde edge with his ambitious flute and saxophone performances, which fit Hawkwind's visionary sound to perfection. So it’s no coincidence that this 1994 performance is based on the classic Hawkwind double live album Space Ritual. With the addition of Chrome guitarist Helios Creed and space-rock notable Pressurehed, Turner brings a spectral force to the Hawkwind classics “Brainstorm,” “Orgone Accumulator,” and “Silver Machine” while adding to the legend with the more recent compositions “Thoth,” “God Rock/Slo Blo,” and Creed’s “Nirbasion Annasion” and “TV as Eyes.” Throbbing Gristle’s Genesis P. Orridge joins for the absolutely weird “Armour for Everyday.” These tracks have an electronic intensity. A song like Hawkwind’s “D-Rider” is a mix of acoustic folk and LSD space imaginings, surfing the sky for nine glorious minutes. Unlike many reformation projects, Space Ritual retains the otherworldly power of the original. This isn't a pale imitation; it's a solid exploration into a singular style that's never come close to being exhausted.
