Hawkwind - Electric Teepee

   1 review  -  852 views
    Electric Tepee is the seventeenth studio album by the English space rock group Hawkwind, released in 1992. It spent one week on the UK albums chart at #53. After a European tour in March and April 1991, long-standing keyboardist Harvey Bainbridge chose to leave the group. Female singer Bridget Wishart would also end her association with the group in September. The group would go on to operate as a three piece of guitarist Dave Brock, bassist Alan Davey and drummer Richard Chadwick, making heavy use of sequencers, synthesisers and computers, both in the studio and live.The album was recorded in 1992 at Brock's own Earth Studios, produced with Paul Cobbold. "Mask of the Morning" re-uses the lyrics from "Mirror of Illusion" from the 1970 debut album Hawkwind. "Rites of Netherworld" is a brief keyboard piece based on Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring.

One of my favorite Hawkwind albums. Yeah, its the newer sound. But Dave Brock never sounded better, IMO. A solid trip end to end played by a really good band. I saw them live on this tour, and it was every bit as solid as the album.
