Hawkbinge returns with the Space Ritual bonus episode! Matt & Andy talk about the place that live albums play in their respective musical backgrounds before taking a dive deep into this landmark album from Hawkwind, compare live & studio versions of tracks such as "Seven by Seven" and "Time We Left This World Today" and get stuck into new ones such as "Born To Go" and the legendary "Sonic Attack". There's also a look at the Barney Bubbles masterpiece that is the Space Ritual cover. All this, plus the joy of Brian Blessed, a nod to those who have been in touch, and the final result of the "Save The Black Heart" Crowdfunder campaign...
No new tracks for the Hawkbinge playlists this time, given that this is a bonus podcast not featuring a studio album, but the two playlists can be found here:
