In 1973 the late, great, visionary artistic polymath Mr Barney Bubbles designed the graphics and stage presentation for the meisterwork of space poet, Robert Calvert: Hawkwind's Space Ritual. Barney designed the show and choerographed it with myself, to incorporate special Barney-designed sound equipment for each member of the band. The show was recorded and released by EMI Records and became one of the best-selling Hawkwind albums ever. In 1978 Barney designed the graphics, costumes, stage presentation and choerography for another of roberts concept shows, The Hawklords 25 years on. Tragically Barney died in 1984. Equally tragically Robert died in 1988.
In 2008, I put together musicians who had worked with Robert to perform Roberts songs, and to celebrate his life.
In 2009 members of that Hawk-band were approached to put together a Hawklords show, with the band performing Roberts original Space Ritual, updated for 2009, at the Roundhouse in North London. The Band which had performed at the Robert Calvert memorial benefit event included three members of the original Hawklords: Harvey Bainbridge, Steve Swindells and Martin Griffin, plus a star-spangled array of ex-members of Hawkwind: Alan Davey, Adrian Shaw, Jerry Richards, Ron Tree and myself. I saw it as expedient to field the band as The Hawklords to perform this stage show inspired by Barney's original presentation. The Hawklords performed The Space ritual 2009 at the Barney Bubbles Memorial Benefit Concert at the 29 Club, Great Portland Street, London on 29.01.2009
