THE HAWKWIND VIDEO LOG
Hawkwind haven't done that much TV or film work so there is little high quality professional footage available - especially from the early days. The band have however allowed generous access to amateur filmmakers and there is no shortage of audience filmed footage from the mid-80's on. This page attempts to bring all this together to provide something of a video chronology for one of the finest rock bands ever.

Do Not Panic...

Welcome to Do Not Panic... - a simple little internet resource with a single purpose - to document the film and television record of the space rock maestros Hawkwind. Apart from this page, there are only 2 other main pages to visit - The List, which provides a film and television chronology for the band and my Trading page - which is where I list the material available for sharing. The objective is to make the list as complete as possible so that it becomes a useful resource for other collectors and to increase my own collection of Hawkwind films as a byproduct! Theres a couple of pages of collected discs and other stuff I've picked up over the years, mostly for my own reference.

I first saw Hawkwind back in 1975 and followed them closely through to about 1979 and then from afar until the Astoria gig Christmas 2005 which was one of the best shows I've seen in a long time. I've got most of the albums, but have missed out on many of the live performances and so started dipping in to many of the useful websites out there to see what was available. I couldn't find a single comprehensive list anywhere, so started to knock one out in a similar format to my other music websites and before I knew it the thing had taken on a life of its own.

Anyway, I hope you find the information useful, and if you can add to, or correct anything you see, or can provide/trade copies of films then please get in touch.

Enjoy the site!

There are already several fantastic Hawkwind websites out there full of useful information, much of which was helpful in putting this site together. Hopefully this resource will grow to complement these sites rather than duplicate their efforts. I'm not seeking to develop a detailed history of the band - these guys are already doing that - check them out:
Hawkwind.com - The official band website; lots of info and pics.
Starfarer's Hawkwind Pages - An encyclaepediac resource; the one fansite to rule them all.
Hawkeye on Hawkwind - Another great set of resources including a year-by-year guide and more great pictures and downloads.

1960-1969

1967 - Dave Brock - Busking in London
1967 - Portobello Road?
A fleeting glimpse of a youngish (well, 26) Dave Brock in his pre-Hawkwind busking days. This is from a 'swinging sixties' documentary and you can download the clip from the Hawkfanfare site.

1970-1979

1970 - Chalk Farm Roundhouse
12 April 1970 - Chalk Farm
This snippet from a Genesis fan site: "There appear to be quite a few independent reports of footage of various bands filmed at the London Roundhouse around 1970, including 35mm film of Hawkwind from April 1970 for which the soundtrack is said to be missing."
Don't hold your breath, but it might turn up one day.
14 August 1970 - Hawkwind - 1st album released
Hurry On Sundown / The Reason Is? / Be Yourself / Paranoia (part 1) / Paranoia (part 2) / Seeing It As You Really Are / Mirror Of Illusion
Dave Brock - John Harrison - Nik Turner - Terry Ollis - Dik Mik - Huw Lloyd Langton - Mick Slattery
1970 - Isle of Wight Festival
27-31 August 1970 - Isle of Wight
Hawkwind's famous free concerts for 'canvas city' outside the main festival were not thought to have been recorded, but rumours persist of at least a few seconds of footage being in existence.

1971 - 2nd Glastonbury Festival
20-24 June 1971- Glastonbury
From glastonburyfestivals.co.uk: "The Festival moved to the time of the Summer Solstice and was known as the Glastonbury Fayre.   The Festival is also captured a la Woodstock by a film crew that included Nick Roeg and David Puttnam.  This film was called Glastonbury Fayre. Acts included: Hawkwind, Traffic, Melanie, David Bowie, Joan Baez and Fairport Convention. Attendance: estimated at 12,000.  Price: free." The film produced didn't include any of the Hawkwind set and I'm not aware of any out-takes circulating but there might be some sitting in a dusty archive somewhere...

8 October 1971- In Search of Space - 2nd album released
You Shouldn't Do That / You Know You're Only Dreaming / Master Of The Universe / We Took the Wrong Step Years Ago / Adjust Me / Children Of The Sun
Nik Turner - Dave Brock - Dave Anderson - Del Dettmar - Terry Ollis - Dik Mik

1972 - Top of the Pops
7 July 1972 - Dunstable Civic Hall
Silver Machine
Hawkwind weren't keen on appearing on Top of the Pops, so the BBC filmed them live
Dunstable Civic instead. Classic. Around thirty minutes of film from this gig is thought to exist (Dave Brock interview in Record Collector 162 - February 1993), with EMI perhaps having even more in the vaults. A few seconds of Stacia dancing au naturale to Orgone Accumulator was featured on the 2001 Top Ten Progressive Rock Bands programme on Channel 4. This looks suspiciously like more footage from the same gig, but it's hard to be sure...


Silver Machine - 1972


Orgone Accumulator - 1972

24 November 1972 - Doremi Fasol Latido - 3rd album released
Brainstorm / Space Is Deep / One Change / Lord Of Light / Down Through The Night / Time We Left This World Today / The Watcher

Bob Calvert - Dave Brock - Lemmy - Nik Turner - Dik Mik - Del Dettmar - Simon King

1973 - Empire Pool, Wembley
27 May 1973, Empire Pool, Wembley
The 2001 Top Ten of Progressive Rock show included a few seconds of film that probably originate from this gig - is the whole set on film somewhere? Who knows? If you do, let me know!!



1973 - The Final Programme
Hawkwind filmed a scene for this 1973 film of the Moorcock novel. It ended up on the cutting room floor, but here's a rare still of Michael Moorcock, actor Jon Finch (as Jerry Cornelius) with Dik Mik, Robert Calvert, Nik Turner, Stacia, Simon King, Dave Brock, Del Dettmar & Lemmy). Maybe the deleted scene will turn up as an extra on DVD one day? The Final Programme is a film by Robert Fuest.



1973 - Swedish TV
14 or 15 September 1973 - Sweden
Swedish TV filmed a festival that Hawkwind played (either Mantorps or Gothenberg). Rumour has it that all of Hawkwind's set was filmed but when the program was shown the following year, only part of Master of The Universe was featured.
6 September 1974 - Hall of the Mountain Grill- 5th album released
Psychedelic Warlords / Wind Of Change / D-Rider / Web Weaver / You'd Better Believe It / Hall Of The Mountain Grill / Lost Johnny / Goat Willow / Paradox
Dave Brock - Lemmy - Simon House - Nik Turner - Del Dettmar - Simon King

Dave Brock - Nik Turner - Simon House - Lemmy - Mike Moorcock - Alan Powell - Simon King
1975 - Watchfield Festival
23 August 1975 - Watchfield, UK
Now I probably wouldn't even bother to mention this if it wasn't for the fact 1970's film is so thin on the ground, but a recent BBC4 documentary on the history of Travellers featured a couple of seconds of Hawkwind playing at the Watchfield Festival.
You can download the clip from the Hawkfanfare site.

27 August 1976 - Astounding Sounds, Amazing Music - 7th album released
Reefer Madness / Steppenwolf / City Of Lagoons / The Aubergine That Ate Rangoon / Kerb Crawler / Kadu Flyer / Chronoglide Skyway

17 June 1977 - Quark, Strangeness And Charm - 8th album released
Spirit Of The Age / Damnation Alley / Fable Of A Failed Race / Quark Strangeness And Charm / Hassan I Sahba / The Forge Of Vulcan / Days Of The Underground / Iron Dream
Robert Calvert - Dave Brock - Simon House - Adrian Shaw - Simon King

1977 - The Marc Bolan Show
14 September 1977 - Quark, Strangeness & Charm
The band appeared as a 4-piece (minus Dave Brock) to mime along to Quark, Strangeness & Charm. Dave Brock apparently didn't turn up because Marc had had him thrown out of a party years before because Dave had shown up his guitar playing skills.



6 October 1978 - 25 Years On - 9th album released
Psi Power / Free Fall / Autumoton / 25 Years / Flying Doctor / The Only Ones / Only The Dead Dreams Of a Cold War Kid /

Bob Calvert - Dave Brock - Harvey Bainbridge - Steve Swindells - Martin Griffin - Simon King - Simon House -
Henry Lowther - Les McClure

1978 - Hawklords Promos
24 November 1978 - Uxbridge, UK
Another reference from the Dave Brock interview in Record Collector 162 - February 1993, this time to a video made by Charisma to accompany the Roadhawks album. A correspondent on the old Listserv Hawkwind Discussion Group suggests these were of the band doing Automoton & 25 Years. An appearance of the Hawklords on Italian TV is also mentioned there. The Sonic Assassins book by Ian Abrahams reports the Uxbridge gig in November 1978 was filmed and may be the source for all these clips a few seconds of which were glimpsed on the 2001 Top Ten of Progressive Rock show.



15 June 1979 - PXR 5 - 10th album released
Death Trap / Jack Of Shadows / Uncle Sam's On Mars / Infinity / Life Form / Robot / High Rise / PXR 5
Robert Calvert - Dave Brock - Simon King - Simon House - Adrian Shaw
1979 - Masters of the Universe Tour Film
Nov/Dec 1979 -
Lighthouse
is included on the Hawkwind Video Collection 1979-89, a now unavailable VHS tape. No info at the moment on exactly when or where this was filmed, but the track was a regular in the November/December UK tour.
This clip is included on the Startling Stories: Do Not Panic Volume 3 - it's very dark with just a few flashes of the light show to set it apart from an audience audio recording.



1970s Audience Film

1976 - Atomhenge Tour
19 September 1976 - A 10-minute grainy, silent 8mm film, apparently from Newcastle 1976.

1977 - Quark, Strangeness and Charm Tour
20 September 1977 - Presumably from the same taper as the 1976 film, 7-minute silent film from Newcastle 1977.

Both these clips are included on Startling Stories: Do Not Panic Volume 1. Only interesting due to the lack of any other quality films from the time.

1980-1989

1980 - Levitation promos
August? 1980 - Who's Gonna Win The War?; World of Tiers; Levitation;
Studio filmed promos for the Levitation album, presumably filmed around the same time as the sessions for the album, which were in July/August at the Roundhouse Studios in Chalk Fam.
World of Tiers appeared on a now deleted VHS Hawkwind Video Collection 1979-89. You can download a copy of World of Tiers from Starfarer's Hawkwind Downloads Page.



27 October 1980 - Levitation
Levitation / Motorway City / Psychosis / World Of Tiers / Prelude / Who's Gonna Win The War / Space Chase / The 5th Second Of Forever / Dust Of Time
Dave Brock - Huw Lloyd Langton - Harvey Bainbridge - Tim Blake - Ginger Baker

1981 - Lieder Und Leute - Musikladen German TV Show
14 February 1981 - Who's Gonna Win The War?
Hawkwind flew over to Baden Baden to appear on the TV Show 'Songs and People', notable for it being Ginger Baker's last appearance with the band. Motorway City was apparently also performed, but not featured on the broadcast.
You can download a copy of this clip from the Hawkfanfare site.

Yet more tracks apparently included on the

Also around this time Kevin Smith started, with the bands approval, making single camera videos of many of the concerts. I'm not sure whether it's Kevin's films that are the source material for the 'official' VHS videos released in the early 90's by Hawkwind Merchandising. 1982 filmed gigs specifically mentioned on Kevin's website include Oxford (14 November).
Choose Your Masques tour, Glasgow

First official Hawkwind video produced by Jettisoundz, who have this to say about the experience at Screenedge:
"The high spot of the year was undoubtedly the production of the first "Hawkwind" video 'Night of the Hawks'. We stayed up all the previous night making new video cables to run four instead of two cameras, drove to London for the extra cameras and film school crew making it to Ipswich for the gig at 4pm on the Friday. The gig was filmed in the most chaotic way, but it worked... The Hawkwind tape was a milestone in that it was the first of our videos to feature conceptual, or made up footage along with the music. The problem was that there were long periods of darkness in the live master tape and something had to be done about it. So I created footage in a variety of ways, including some incredible staggered sequences discovered accidentally whilst rewinding the master tape through a time base corrector. The finished release resulted in our best selling tape to date, a No.1 in the video chart and some rave reviews in the music press.

Battle Sequence (Elric) - Space Is Their Palestine
1 & 2 are more tracks from the
Hawkwind Video Collection 1979-89; Space Is Their Palestine is from the Outlaws Bike Festival (Pentrich, Derbyshire) and originate from a similar video, this one called Hawkwind Festivals 1984-1996. Though of bootleg quality, both of these videos were Hawkwind approved releases.
10 February 1985 - Hawkon, the first Hawkwind convention featured a session of ex-members and over 2 hours of film, including interviews, is circulating.


1986 - Bristol Custom Bike Show
20 June1986 - Bristol, UK
Master Of The Universe
This is available on VHS from
Screenedge and is included on the DVD Startling Stories: Do Not Panic Volume 3. Not much Hawkwind content as the clip focuses on events during the show with only a few seconds of the band playing.

1986 - Tour Film
24 August 1986 -
Three tracks from the Reading Rock Festival (24 August): Silver Machine is from the Hawkwind Festivals 1984-1996 VHS release; and Assault and Battery (incomplete) - Assassins of Allah from Hawkwind Video Collection 1979-89. These tracks are included on the DVD collections Startling Stories: Do Not Panic Volume 3 and Startling Stories: Do Not Panic Volume 4. Filmed from on high in the light gantry the effect is underwhelming to say the least.

From distributors Screenedge: "This no frills footage was filmed in Preston, England during their celebrated Chaos Tour of 1986 and has become a favourite amongst fans. Hawkwind go full on psychedelic, performing bona fide classics ripped from rock n roll’s underbelly. As always the stage-show is a melting pot of audio-visual lunacy. 20 years does nothing to dilute their relentless eccentricity, as the stage becomes a virtual battlefield of noise and melody, mesmerising mantras and nightmare images."

1989 - US Tour Film
September/October 1989 - Cleveland, Los Angeles, San Francisco USA
Another VHS from the early 1990's which advertised clips from these shows from the '89 & '90 tours. I know no more about this at the moment.





1980s Audience Film
By now, concert filming by fans is pretty widespread, so it's fairly safe to assume most concerts will have some video record somewhere. This list is copied from trade lists found on the Internet and is probably a fair representation of what is out there. Titles underlined are those available on the Do Not Panic DVD trading page.

1990 - Classic Rock legends
25 January 1990 - Nottingham
Lives Of Great Men - Golden Void - Out Of The Shadows - Night Of The Hawk - Back In The Box - Utopia - Ejection - Damnation Alley - Wind of Change
Filmed for the BedRock TV Show, broadcast on ITV (UK) on 10 May 1990. The following is from VoicePrint (publishers of the companion double live CD): Hawkwind made this rare TV appearance on a music show called "Bedrock". It was a strange affair, as although it was filmed live the set was interrupted a few times for the Bedrock team to make adjustments. Equally as strange, was that the lighting levels were unusually high (for a Hawkwind concert at least), this was so that viewers had something to watch, as the show was to be screened across all the ITV regions. Hawkwind's screen projections, because of the high lighting levels, had to be filmed the following day, and placed over the footage.
Wind of Change
was omitted from the DVD release (though it was on the VHS video, but can be downloaded from Starfarer's Hawkwind Downloads Page).

3 July 1990 - Bournemouth Academy

From distributors Screenedge: "Love in Space was shot during Hawkwind’s Alien 4 tour in 1995 and is comprised of the highlights taken from four venues – Liverpool Royal Court, Manchester Academy, Bristol Colston Hall and Brixton Academy London. It shows the band at there most creative and over the top, with then frontman Ron Tree wearing a vast array of bizarre costumes designed specially for the tour alongside various performance artists. The band are paired down to a four piece but have lost non of the raw power one associates with archetypal Hawkwind".

2000>

2000 - Hawkwind in Australia
February 2000 - New Zealand/Australia
From the New Zealand Herald on 3 February 2000: "The band gather for a photo and all the while things are filmed for a documentary on Hawkwind Down Under it is hoped British television will pick up". I don't know about British TV, but Hawkwind in Australia was broadcast on 20 July 2000 on Studio 22, ABC Network in Oz. Songs included: Silver Machine; Arrival In Utopia; Love In Space; Rat Race; Love In Space; Free Fall.
Available on the Do Not Panic DVD Trading List



2000 - Hawkestra
21 October 2000 - Brixton Academy
The anniversary reunion gig - filmed but not released - yet. From Mr. Brock himself on hawkwind.com: "it was filmed and recorded so eventually there will be a package of edited highlights.... I have 3 hours of rehearsal / backstage video, which we will utilise at some point."
There are some screenshots at hawkwind.com and some footage was used in the Channel 4 2001 Top Ten of Progressive Rock programme.



2000 - Hawkmas Yule Ritual
29 December 2000 - London Astoria
This would appear to have been filmed.
There are some screenshots at hawkwind.com

2001 - Tour Film
2001 - ??
hawkwind.com suggests some of the Spring gigs (mini-tour to Croydon, Aldershot, Nottingham & Leeds) were filmed, but the link to the video still isn't working at present.

2001 - Top Ten of Progressive Rock, C4
2002 - When Rock Ruled the World, BBC

2004 - Classic Albums: Ace of Spades, BBC
Hawkwind were at Number 8 on this compilation show which featured some interesting snippets - interviews with Dave Brock,Lemmy & Nik Turner as well as old footage of Stacia on-stage from 1972, a Bob Calvert clip and snippets from other released material. This was followed in 2002 by a similar programme from the BBC: When Rock Ruled the World which used almost identical clips, presumably from the same source, with similar quotes from Lemmy.
Classic Albums features interviews with Dave Brock and Lemmy on the Hawkwind days - going over the same old ground as Top 10 Prog Rock. Brief clip of 'Motorhead' (the song).



2002 - In Concert Out of the Shadows
4 December 2002 - Newcastle Opera House
Aero Space Age Inferno - Angels Of Death - Out Of The Shadows - Time Captives - Master Of the Universe - The Song Of The Gremlins - Time & Confusion - Hurry On Sundown - Lighthouse - The Watcher - Assassins Of Allah - Earth Calling - Sonic Space Attack - Silver Machine
5 camera shoot directed by Dave Meehan. Also includes an hour-long interview with Dave Brock.



2002 - Welcome To The Future
December 2002 - Dave Brock
Welcome To The Future is a double CD compilation from Shakedown Records (SHAKEBX114Z) which included a bonus DVD of this interview with Dave Brock.

2002 - Making of 'Destruction of the Death Generator'
December 2002 - Wiltshire
There's a bizarre story about the Ministry of Defence producing a film about the making of Destruction Of The Death Generator. This was going to be Hawkwind's "next epic project.. written in conjunction with Michael Moorcock". (in fact it eventually became Take Me To Your Leader, with no Moorcock involvement).
Read all about it for yourself over at Starfarer.net. Perhaps not surprisingly, this film has yet to appear.

2003 - HawkFest
9 August 2003 - Garstang
From hawkwind.com (in 2004) "HawkFest 2003 was also recorded, and may also be released as a DVD in the near future!"

2004 - Sweden Rock Festival
11 June 2004 - Solvesborg, Sweden

2005 - Bergen Festival, Norway
4 May 2005 - Bergen
From a recent interview with Dave Brock for MetalZone (A Greek Heavy Metal mag):
Metalzone: You have also filmed a DVD, in Burgen, with 7 cameras. When is it going to be released?
Hawkwind: We haven’t seen it yet. We actually have to see it first. So we aren’t thinking about releasing it because we don’t know if it’s any good yet. We don’t know what the soundtracks are like; we don’t know what the pictures look like. They haven’t sent us a copy so we are still waiting.
Also confirmed at hawkwind.com: A DVD was filmed at the Bergen gig - a seven camera shoot with 28 channel audio
Lowcut Magazine provides a review of the gig.


2005 - Spirit of the Age Launch Party
1 September 2005 - London
Just a few seconds of Matthew Wright introducing the band at the Spirit of the Age launch can be
downloaded from Starfarer's Hawkwind Downloads Page. The band went on to perform a few numbers, so presumably there's film of that around too?

12 September 2005 - Take Me To Your Leader
Spirit Of The Age / Out Here We Are / Greenback Massacre / To Love A Machine / Take Me To Your Leader / Digital Nation / Sunray / Sighs / Angela Android / A Letter To Robert Of The Micro Man
Dave Brock - Alan Davey - Richard Chadwick - James Clemas - Jez Huggett - Arthur Brown - Matthew Wright -
Lene Lovich - Simon House




2005 - Take Me To Your Leader - Bonus DVD
12 September 2005 - London
The bonus DVD contains interviews with Messrs. Brock, Davey & Chadwick as well as Spirit of the Age (promo); Silver Machine (w/ Lemmy - from Ruisrock Festival 2004); The Right To Decide (studio audio with Brixton '92 visuals); Spirit of The Age; Psychedelic Warlords (both from 2004 tour). The interview segment ironically all have brief snippets of a multi-camera filmed gig from 2005 (Bergen?) - that looks like a film well worth releasing later in 2006!


screen shots from the four DVD live tracks


screen shots form the interview live segments - much better quality film!!

2005 - Greek TV Show
November 2005 - Greece (?)
An intriguing snippet from hawkwind.com: a Greek TV show being made.....(more details to follow)....
The band spent a few days over in Greece in November 2005, including a 'private function' at Thessoloniki on the 4th November.





2000s Audience Film
