I never got into hawkwind until the mid 80's and I never saw them live until first time (of more than 30) was in 1990 when they had Karen Wishart on vocals and were promoting the then new album space bandits.
Yes, Bridget ( not Karen)was a cool singer in the Hawks.....by the time they recorded Electric Teepee, Bainbridge (bassist and keyboard player) and she had left the band.I never got into hawkwind until the mid 80's and I never saw them live until first time (of more than 30) was in 1990 when they had Karen Wishart on vocals and were promoting the then new album space bandits.
You are right it is Bridget, she was only in the band a few months and that one album, Space Banditsl.Yes, Bridget ( not Karen)was
Give em another try, you won't regret it. Try listening to Levitation and your third eye will be openedWhile I have heard of Hawkwind, I probably should give them another chance. I can appreciate the zeal you seem to have for the band. From memory, I don't think I have any Hawkwind in my collection but I will sample an album or two somewhere this week. You have inspired me.
I would never have even come close to listening to HW if they hadn't been psychedelic.The first album like a lot of bands from the late 60's is psychedelic and is not typical of Hawkwind, although hurry on sundown and mirror of illusion are great tracks IMO. They never developed their classic 'space rock' sound until Lemmy (later Motorhead) joined the band in the early 70's
