Indeed, and of course it's fairly far removed from the UA years but there are many familiar reference points (and having Captain Lockheed kinda helps bridge the gap).
I'm now torn between which album (this or Lockheed) is Calvert's greatest achievement.
I also love the ludicrously surreal Pan-Transcendental Industries manifesto (that is reproduced within the CD booklet). Serves as this album's Hawklog.
In fact, it's easy to take for granted the holistic multi-media approach Hawkwind often applied to their concepts (particularly when Calvert and Barny Bubbles were involved).

G + A = H - CD (there are no car doors in Heaven when Angels are on the ground)

I think we can all take something from that wisdom!?


Yes, I love the PTI stuff, it's probably the closest that Calvert got to the surreal spirit of new wave sci-fi, the angels/car door thing is almost Ballardian. Would have loved to see that tour. There's a film of it somewhere (allegedly in the Cherry Red vaults), but it's never been made publically available.
