“Ejection” – Robert Calvert / Hawkwind

Video

Hawkwind’s lead singer Robert Calvert released a very good hard rock / comedy concept album around 1974 called “Captain Lockheed and the Starfighters.” “Ejection” was the single from the album and it’s coolness is off the charts.

If you dig that, please check out this outtake version from Hawkwind that’s now a bonus track on “Doremi Fasol Latido”

There’s also a cover by the New Bomb Turks that’s pretty bitchin’, but I can find it on YouTube. It’s on their singles compilation “Pissing out the Poison.”

“Silver Machine” – Hawkwind

More Lemmy for a Friday morning. This is from Lemmy’s days with space-rock giants Hawkwind, recording the vocal for Hawkwind’s most famous song, “Silver Machine.”  This is extremely trippy stuff.  I take no responsibility if you start to hallucinate (or levitate for that matter).
