PSYCHEDELIC WARLORD BROCK IN THE OUTER LIMITS!
Jay Siekierski | STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. USA | 02/04/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Hawkwind founder and leader Dave Brock has finally issued a new solo work. Strange Dreams & Pipe Dreams is his first
solo work since the `80s and was worth the wait. Though, this CD sounds alot like Hawkwinds' music, one must remember
that Brock is the head warrior behind the band and its nice to hear him behind the controls and cruisin' the outer limits and
infinite depths of space alone this time. Among the starlights is a pastoral churchly space remake on the Hawkwind classic
"Space Is Deep" this time around simply titled "Space". "Bosnia" opens with some meticulous charming acoustic guitar and then
blasts into the ugliness of warfare which Brock reflects in spoken poetry against backdrops of gunfire and crazed laughing that
is suddenly smoldered over with some attractive cathedral soundscapes of keyboards. All in all this is a well rounded effort of
new music and will satisfy the hungry psychedelic appetite of Hawkfans everywhere. This is one PSYCHEDELIC WARLORD
that has not disappeared in smoke!"
