HITCHIN SPACEWARP TIMESLIP - HAWKLORDS AND DEVIANT AMPS AT CLUB-85

Did I ever mention that Space Rock is one of my favourite all time genres of music? No! Well it is and Club-85 had the gig of gigs to satisfy any star pilot's musical thirst, The Deviant Amps supporting Hawklords, both bands I really really really like with a passion.


So at least Chris and I had survived the Doncaster adventure and this night we were joined by Alex making this yet another splendid Fellowship outing.

Hitchin Spacewarp Timeslip

It is cold, so cold on the edge of time
It is dark, so dark on the edge of time
Most of our crew were lost, somewhere
Somewhere, out there
In this endless, timeless space
Where here even the stars are obscured


Well thank goodness
I’m only stood on the platform at Stevenage station
Waiting once again, for a Hitchin bound train
We landed in a hostelry selected by the autopilot
And left a galaxy of dreams behind
Well, anyway, the cares of the day
Seemed to slip easily away!


We are The Fellowship
We are one
And we do gigging like it should be done
We are The Fellowship
We are one
And tonight we’re having fun

Alex unaware of the bunny ears from Chris
Chantel in Doncaster the night before
May have taken its toll
For there was no Kevin or Peter or Tim
But Chris and I were still on a roll
And Alex had now joined in
So at least tonight we were three
The Deviant Amps and the Hawklords
At Club-85 in Hitchin we’d see

The Deviant Amps in full flow

We are The Fellowship
We are one
And we do gigging like it should be done
We are The Fellowship
We are one
And tonight we’re having fun

The Deviant Amps were on fine form
And played a good hour long set
It may have been the last with their bass player
But it was the best I’d seen them yet
And anyway I love this band

Hawklords
The Hawklords were simply quite stunning
The new album is somewhat sublime
They treated us to a classic evening of Space Rock
Over two hours of seamless running time
And the crowd shouted for more
More
More, more, more, more

The crowd called out for more

We are The Fellowship
We are one
And we do gigging like it should be done
We are The Fellowship
We are one
And tonight we’re having fun

Ron Tree giving it large

Jerry Richards in fine form, cosmic.
No, both the Hawlords and Deviant Amps have new albums out, the Hawklords R: Evolution is absolutely out of this world and the Deviant Amps Step In Step Out double album is also utterly brilliant and the last one with long time bass player Martin Wheeldon who has done a magnificent job for so many years but talking to Paul and Keith they have a new bass player lined up so that's good news for the band.
Long live rock and roll, long live Spacerock, long live Club-85 who have a host of great gigs coming up over the next few months.
