This is the latest issue of Hawkwind magazine put out by Brian Tawn in the U.K. since the late 70s. On this issue Brian writes about the annual Hawkeaster happening at The Gateway in Seaton. This was the third Hawkeaster and the main event was on Easter Saturday and Sunday, but there was also a pre-event on Friday and some fans had already arrived on Thursday.
Reading this article makes me feel a bit sad that I wasn't there since it's obvious that Hawkwind and their fans really form a loving family. The main event featured several other bands (Jupiter's Carnival, Flak, System 7, T.O.S.H., Tarantism etc.) besides Hawkwind, who of course headlined on both nights. Steve Hillage from System 7 quested with Hawkwind on Sunday! As always, Brian's writing is intimate, enthusiastic and honest. Sounds like an excellent event! After the pretty long write-up including cool pics there is Damnation Alley where Brian goes briefly though some of the latest HW releases including some super rare bootlegs. Very nice! You can get your own copy by sending Brian £1.80 within the UK, £2.80 to the rest of Europe and £3.50 outside Europe by Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org. Warmly recommended for all Hawkfans out there! Also, check out the Hawkfan group at Facebook.
