Sarah Harvey… The Carlisle November 5th, 2017. Returning to Hastings nearly 40 years after their first appearance on Hastings Pier on November 25th, 1978. The Hawklords. They were born from the disbanded Hawkwind (Robert Calvert – vocals, Dave Brock – guitar and Simon King – drums) and a local Devon group named Ark (Harvey Bainbridge – bass and Martin Griffin – drums) with the addition of former Pilot keyboardist Steve Swindells. The use of the name Hawklords instead of Hawkwind may have been due to legal reasons concerning their former management company, or may simply have been due to the band wishing to give the impression that this was a new musical venture, however, this left the door open for the resurrection of the name as one of the many spin-off bands formed by ex-members of Hawkwind, such as Motörhead and Hawkestra.
John Coleman… Seen the originals! This will be good!
