Brock has managed to show us that the journey into the sleeping brain is even stranger than the one into deepest space. Hawkwind have released a new studio album every year since 2016, and here they are like clockwork with this year’s release Somnia. It’s amazing really because Dave Brock is now officially an octogenarian...

To the legions of Hawkwind fans who were..

Villagers Of Ioannina City are that merry band of boundary-pushers, producing this really quite addictive new album Age of Aquarius.
