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...
Got some great stuff for you today: Three new releases, and a freakin book!
First up, We have Lastwind and their new album 'High On Life' (SHARPCD19108). Lastwind are the new outfit from former Hawkwind member Paul Hayes, so you know these guys are the real deal! And if it’s a history lesson you’re after, why not check out Paul’s new book? "Sonic Assassin - a life". And before you ask, no! This is not a book about Paul’s journey to murder a fast blue hedgehog. It’s a gritty, all access, no holds barred tale of Paul’s time in Hawkwind, and so much more. But don’t take our word for it, why not check out the official blurb: 'Paul Hayles biography is a fast moving story deeply embedded in the music and entertainment business. With some very famous friends, bands and tours, Paul takes us through what it was like working with the greats and living to tell the tale. Paul never wanted to be in a cult rock band like Hawkwind and yet there he was, setting out on a journey that would take him away from his young family and make his wildest dreams come true. Paul knew Lemmy Kilmister from way back: both had auditioned for the same band before Hawkwind came together...'
