Formed in 1969 Hawkwind are one of the earliest space rock groups. Whilst have gone through many incarnations, and have incorporated different styles into their music (including hard rock, progressive rock and psychedelic rock) their lyrics have always favoured urban and science fiction themes.
Dozens of musicians, dancers and writers have worked with the band since their inception. These include Lemmy, Michael Moorcock, Ginger Baker and Huw Lloyd-Langton. The only original member is their founder, singer, songwriter and guitarist Dave Brock.
