Hawkwind's double live album is a bit cacophonous, with no shortage of futuristic noises to support tales of exploring the cold expanses of the universe. Slap on your glitter, ingest psychedelics and enjoy the light show.
Not on my list of all-time wonderfulness, though it is a killer excuse to put up this video of one of their better tunes, featuring an apple-cheeked Ian Kilmister on vocals. Seeing and hearing Lemmy actually singing here will be a revalation to those only familiar with the whiskey-voiced, growling style which defined his Motorhead recordings.
Strangely, "Silver Machine" is nowhere to be found on this record.
