So Hawkwind. You may have heard the name, but have you heard the music? I bet that you've heard stories, exaggerated by years of bad rock criticism since the band's heyday in the early '70s. Some of them are even true: The band did tour with an exotic dancer. And, yes, guitarist Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister did quit the band and steal all of their amps to form Motörhead. But have you heard the music? Because it's pretty damn good. Simultaneously the most bass-driven and psychedelic of the original wave of space-rock bands, Hawkwind are the secret godfathers of Fuzz and DIIV and other hip pedal-board bands the internet loves so much right now.
