Doc's Record and Vintage

Extensive Set Exploring The Space Rock And Free Festival Scene, 1978-1998. Compiled With The Legendary Dave Brock, Frontman Of Hawkwind, Figurehead Of The Scene And Inspiration For Counteless Like-Minded Heads. Featuring Key Names - Hawkwind (And Their Many Offshoots), Ozric Tentacles, Here And Now, Magic Mushroom Band, Poisoned Electrick Head, Michael Moorcock, Robert Calvert, Tim Blake, Etc. Plus Many Lesser-Known But Vital Players In A Movement That Was As Much A Way Of Life And A Political Philosophy As It Was A Music Scene. 40 Tracks, Each Of Them Exploring The Outer Limits Of Mind, Body And Spirit. Emerging out of the post-hippy fall-out of the late 1960s, Dave Brock and Hawkwind forged a new, psychedelic rock sound which, as the 1970s progressed, became the focal point of a festival scene that drew together countless alternative and counter-cultural artists, all of whom sought to take their listeners into previously unchartered realms of inner space. Gathered together here are the prime movers in this Brock-inspired scene which subsequently emerged and found focus towards the end of '70s, centred on free festivals, like-minded record labels, self-released cassettes and an anti-authoritarian lifestyle and political position. From hard rocking psychedelic warriors to experimental sonic architects, 'This Was Your Future' captures a time and place in danger of being forgotten in the corporate playground of the present. A place where the guitar and the synthesiser proved mightier than the sword, offering an outlet for expression to countless artists for whom mainstream culture was a strange and alien landscape.
