(Sept 3, 2013): Hawkwind – Quark, Strangeness and Charm

The title track from the 1977 album, Quark, Strangeness & Charm.  This LP was released during the time Hawkwind was moving from a progressive rock band to an its better known space rock outlook.  “Damnation Ally,” “Hassan I Sahb,” and the “Forge of Vulcan” are all in that vein.  This tune, though, always had a different feel — almost like the band was trying to fit in with the punk/new wave zeitgeist, even if it did not quite make it.
