Blog #31


We’re back once again, for another round of "Someone let me talk to the masses, what a mistake that was" Also known, as the Flicknife Blog!
Yeash, it’s been a wild few months, eh? But don’t worry, there’s always a way to finish the year on a high and I just happen to know exactly what it is. So, if you want to make sure you have a rocking Christmas, and a rock-tastic New Years, listen close:

Cast your mind back! It’s March, 1982 and you’re listening to DOREMI FASOL LATIDO, watching Only Fools and Horses and drinking a cool glass of Pepsi, because some things are timeless. As you sit there, it hits you. What could be better, than sitting, listening to an album by your all-time favourite band, Hawkwind? Simple: listening to an album of Hawkwind, their friends, and some relations!
And thus, it came to being: Hawkwind Friends and Relations. One of the greatest album series of all time. But wait, there’s more!
Fast forward to today. Now, while you sit in that same old beanbag chair, listening to HFAR and thinking of better times, you can do it while wearing AWESOME t-shirts, featuring Hawks sleeves-inspired art! Aww yeah!

HFAR Volume 1
HFAR Volume 2
HFAR Volume 3

Yup, our previous entry into the world of wearable awesomeness went SO well, that we decided to expand our line. So, I’m here today to introduce THREE new lines of shirts, straight from the Flicknife Press. The FlickPress...

Our first line, as mentioned above, is the HFAR T-shirt line! Featuring the first three original volumes (as it was meant to be a trilogy) plus the 'Best Of', in pride of place on a shirt.

Our second fantastic line is the "Flicknife Originals" line. Featuring some of our classic artworks, without our label, emblazoned onto top quality, premium tees!

The final new addition is the "Flicknife Line" which takes our artworks from those classic releases and adds the only thing which could possibly improve them. Us! The Flicknife logo, in large, hidden in plain sight, behind the other artwork.

Flicknife Skullprint T-Shirts

Oh, you lucky people! To have such a fun selection of amazing, high quality shirts to pick from. All made by our wonderful friends over at Skull Print! Click/tap the image to the left to see our range at Skullprint!

Well, the first rule of showbiz is always leave them wanting more so I’ll take my leave now!
From everyone here at the Flicknife offices: have a safe, happy and cool shirt covered Christmas. I think everyone has earned an extra special day, this year. And fingers crossed, 2021 will see us all emerging from our caves, to re-join whatever is left of the world, and get back to rocking hard the punkadelic way!

So until next time...

Catch you on the flipside.

Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year 2020 to all FLICKERS


It's beginning to look a lot like FLICKMAS!
It's that time of year, known by most as the *end* of the year, when we're inclined to look back and consider the events of the past 12 months.

Overall, there were many and varied explosive world changing events this year. Referendums, Impeachments...truly life changing stuff.

But we're not going to talk about that. It's boring and depressing. Let's talk about music...

They say that those who don't know their history, are doomed to repeat it. So, today, we plan to save a few souls by telling you all about a great and much liked chapter of Flicknife's History.

In the early 80's we released the first album of what would grow to be an ongoing and much loved musical omnibus: 'Hawkwind, Friends & Relations' known to those in the know, or those that wish to pretend to such, as HFAR. The idea was simple: release an album with a couple of tracks from Hawkwind, mostly archive stuff or out of stock singles, and then add in a nice mix of bands and artists that were in some way connected to the band, or extended Hawkwind Family. By doing this, our hope was that the new bands could profit a bit, via connection to the Hawkwind name, and Hawkfans would get some tracks from their favourite band that they might not already own and discover new ones from like-minded bands.. Everybody was happy!
