In The Middle with Hawkwind

2 years ago / 0 comments

  I recently spoke to Richard Chadwick, the very-underrated drummer of space-rock pioneers Hawkwind, about his thoughts on modern psychedelic music, and was very surprised to say the least to find that his hopes for psychedelia’s future lay in experimental black metal.

“People don’t know everything about me!” laughs Loyle Carner as I ask him about the personal depth of his lyrics, “and it’s almost a bit too late to worry about it anyway”. Speaking to the 22-year-old rapper less than a week before his much-anticipated debut album drops, it certainly is … Read More

We caught up with the Surrey four piece just before the release of their high-octane indie single, ‘Down’. They are currently touring with like-minded Blackpool rockers Strange Bones.   What music are you listening to at the moment?  Dune Rats are pretty mad.
