The Tivoli, Buckley
8th April 2022
This is not Hawkwind – Do not panic… Hawklords’ travelling time equipment materialises in Buckley.
Ex-Hawkwind associates really don’t die – they merely join Hawklords. With more than enough previous customers to kickstart a new race of astral projecting cadets on some faraway world, the Hawkwind phenomenon is an infinite continuum of space and time.
So, Hawklords (c2022) – a price range Hawkwind? Nicely, I had this notion storming all-around my mind when they opened with Velocity Of Sound followed by Devil In Your Head, the songs have all the chords in the suitable locations, the sound is room rock, but it’s not… y’know, Dave and it was spoiling my night. I experienced to solid aside this preconception, THIS IS NOT HAWKWIND – DO NOT Panic. At the time that was out of the way the endorphins had been produced, the silver device sped off and we experienced a 1 way excursion to heaven’s gate.
The Tivoli is in the one-horse city of Buckley in North East Wales. It’s a location steeped in record, with several greats possessing trodden the boards on their way up (Oasis, Radiohead, Manics) and also a lot of other folks on their way down. It survives where by other folks have fallen. Venues have to be innovative with distinct types of situations these days so the economically important scourge of tribute functions also guide in enabling evenings like this.

Hawklords are on their Time Tour – a 21 day tour with a flight path that zig-zags across the British isles to boost their most up-to-date album ‘Time’. This new release (2021) is only represented tonight by the opening track, Velocity Of Sound, Flip On You and the Obscura poem that echoes throughout this ballroom in a maelstrom of audio. Vocals are shared by Jerry and Mr Dibs both equally have charisma extra to their quark, strangeness and allure and they give their ex-workforce a nod with great variations of Robotic and Learn Of The Universe. I guess the penultimate tune, Psi Ability is technically a Hawklords tune, though no a person on stage was about when it was initially recorded on the 1978 album 25 Many years On. By now everybody current is enveloped in equally the audio and the vibe as these psychedelic warlords produce the driving excellence of SR-71.
I turned up a conscript – I still left a transform.
Hawklords Time Tour 2022 continues till 24th April it’ll most likely be over the moment you have study this. Simply just bounce into your time equipment and travel back again to see 1 of the demonstrates, you won’t be let down.
