Robert Calvert – The Marquee London

all photos by Clive Richardson

Dave Nattress… Haven’t looked this up yet to be sure, but wasn’t he in Hawkwind early on and a bit later known as the space cadet or something like?

Clive Richardson… Photos are about 1979/1980. Bob Calvert much acclaimed album Captain Lockheed and the Starfighters included Arthur Brown on guest vocals and some members of Hawkwind. BobCalvert/Nik Turner are accredited with introducing Stacia to Hawkwind. She danced with Nik Turner’s band in 2018, first time for 43 years. Bob Calvert is buried at Minister in Kent.

Xifer… indeed – resident Poet in the early days with readings on the Space Ritual and writing Silver Machine, later lead vocalist during the late seventies Hawklords phase before going Over The Top and splitting with the band in Paris on Tour where I believe they escaped bob chasing their car. ¬†They could not longer trust the onstage sword fighting amongst other things. Many later solo records feature hw members personally I love his Freq album covering social issues the miners strike, work and machines. ¬†Please discover this unsung visionary.
