First concert

The first concert I ever attended was the first Hawkwind's two "Into the Eighties" concerts at the Electric Ballroom in Camden on 28 December 1979.

The support band was meant to be the Psychedelic Furs (who went on to fairly big things in the 80s) but they pulled out and were replaced by the now forgotten Billy Karloff and the Extremes. Amazingly there is a fair bit of footage from this band on You Tube

The Hawkwind line up at the time was Dave Brock (guitar, synths+ Harvey Bainbridge (bass) Huw Lloyd Langton (lead guitar) Simon King (drums) and Tim Blake (synths)
