Prog Magazine Issue 124 (October 2021) Hawkwind
This is your captain speaking... We're celebrating space rock legends Hawkwind on the cover of the new issue of Prog Magazine, which is on sale now!
It’s 50 years since Hawkwind released In Search Of Space, an album that would define their own sound and that of space rock, the genre that they more than any spearhead. We look at the making of In Search Of Space. We also discuss the band’s brand new studio album Somnia. And we chart a course to the outer reaches, exploring the whole space rock scene and how it fits in with the world of progressive rock.
This issue we also see the return of live reviews for the first time since issue 108 in April 2020. We caught Steve Hackett at the London Palladium, Leprous in Norway, the Sunday In September mini festival in Balham, as well as King Crimson in America, Exploring Birdsong in London and more...
