Amplifier – Trippin With Dr. Faustus. Was a big fan of these guys a few years ago, but felt they over-reached themselves with the sprawling cosmic prog sludge of The Octopus. This new album is pretty great though, lots of punchy big riffs and decent songs: https://amplifier.bandcamp.com/album/trippin-with-dr-faustus

Krokofant – III. Young Norwegian jazz rock trio, in places a bit like if VDGG’s David Jackson played sax with King Crimson. A tad migraine-inducing overall though, previous album better.

New Keepers Of The Water Towers – Infernal Machine. Gloomy, proggy space rock from young Swedes, creates an atmosphere if nothing else: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gze3hpZlpg4

Motorhead – s/t. Shamefully, and for reasons I find hard to fathom now, I never seriously listened to MH in my young metal days. I think they scared me a bit to be honest, plus all the greasers on the local council estate had already claimed them. Somehow, it felt safer sticking with Rainbow... Anyhow, the foolishness of youth. This is one long amphetamine blur and rather ace, the three Lemmy-penned Hawkwind tracks all taken at full tilt.

Sonic Assassins – Live ’77. It’s around this point that Hawkwind’s various line-up tangles get really complicated, the Sonic Assassins being a Devon-based pick-up band put together by Dave Brock (with Bob Calvert) that subsequently becomes the Hawklords after the official iteration of Hawkwind collapses at the end of an American tour in March 1978. Various edited/overdubbed versions of the one and only Sonic Assassins show from December ’77 have been around for a while, most recently as extra tracks on the Atomhenge Hawklords/25 Years On reissue. The set is most notable for early versions of ‘Free Fall’ and ‘Death Trap’, plus a semi-improvised piece called ‘Over The Top’, which is Calvert at his finest. A slightly longer version of the set here: https://soundcloud.com/user-463499060/sonic-assassins-live More information about the gig here: http://www.lifeprobe.co.uk/sonichawk/1977-sonic-assassins/index.htm

Doctors Of Madness – Late Night Movies, All Night Brainstorms. Was always seeing this album in the second-hand bins when trawling for treasure in my teens. Didn’t buy it of course, as it looked a bit odd, but not in a good way. Always assumed they were some kind of new wavey pub rock band, but this article from Friday’s Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2017/may/19/doctors-of-madness-punk suggested they were ‘punk before punk’ pioneers, so I gave it a listen… and they turn out to be another one of these Bowie/Roxy initiated bands (see also Be Bop Deluxe, Cockney Rebel etc) that sound good in short bursts, but are a bit trying/try-hard over the length of an album. On saying that, it was indeed quite late at night when I listened.

VA – Pigs Might Fly. Not a bad MOJO freebie this, of a prog/psych bent. Jane Weaver’s ‘Modern Kosmology’ is the stand-out by some way though (her new album is wonderful if I haven’t said that enough already).

Listen With Father:

Queen – s/t. One of those albums I heard at a young and tender age from my older brother, so I don’t have much objectivity towards it. A brilliantly strange pile-up of glam, prog and proto-metal melodrama that’s packed with great riffs eg. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcOReGioJP4 I took the kids’ silence as stunned acknowledgment of its awesomousity…

I saw her with her excellent band, on Thursday night. They were selling the new 'Modern Kosmology' album on their merch table, as it was released that day. I've been playing it, pretty much, ever since. That opening track H>A>K is a belter!

There was a lot of talk about that lack of sound quality before the set came out. & that was among the material exclusive to the full box so a selling point of buying the full thing.
Would be good if a better quality full BBC set did come out but i think a number of people would feel a bit ripped off by it.

There's just been a cheap box set of the 3 lps put out, going for about £10 on Amazon marketplace. So I've been listening to these too.

Ultramega just remixed, completely and it needed it, and reissued two months ago. Sounds fantastic.
