Would someone please tell me if Hawkwind still plan to play Boston, my
computer must have been down when the new dates came out?

Hey Folks...

Suppose I should contribute something for a change.

Noted the discussion about The Cosmic Dead, and I quite like them, though
I'm not sure any of their releases will make my Best of... list this year.
There's suddenly so much stuff out there in "Bandcampland" and the like!!
Having a really hard time narrowing the field to the truly outstanding.  To
demonstrate, here's my list of candidates...what's your favorite of the

At the moment, I am gravitating towards the White Manna as my Album of the
Year.  They are just too awesome.  I also really like Cave, Pyramidal, and
this new Columbus band (too bad I don't live there anymore) Brujas del Sol,
so those will be Top 10ers for sure.  The HW-related releases were also
pretty strong, including Hawklords, Timelords (essentially TOSH, if I'm not
mistaken), and Nik's thing. Haven't heard Spacehawks yet, but I doubt if I
would include it anyway, since it's largely compilation, right?  Still,
anxious to hear new versions of WotEoT tracks.

By the way...I had a ticket for the Wash DC show, and it was originally
rescheduled for March 15, and now I see it has been cancelled entirely, even
though I've seen announcements for other US/CN dates in mid-March for other
cities.  Still waiting to hear about Cleveland and Philly, both of which I
also hold tickets for.  Does that just mean that this particular club in DC
no longer fits into the tour scheduling plans, and that the tour is still on
for March, or what has anybody heard?  I'm anxious for it to take place for
real!!  I have nothing to see here live hardly...although Clutch is playing
right here in my little town next month.  'Course, they're nearly local,

P.S.  Another Glasgow band (like Cosmic Dead), called Deadotter, had a bunch
of nice spacey jam tracks up on YouTube from a few years' back...they were
really cool, but I gather nothing official ever got released.  Check out
"Mother Music" if it's still up there.
