The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
I used to love Hawkwind (and Quintessence too) when I could still hear music and what was sung. I am so surprised that Hawkwind are still going strong! This brings back a flood of wonderful memories of the sixties and flower power and CND marches. Of Mods and Rockers and my first scooter (with fleece trims, a lot of chrome and me in my parka jacket) Of joss sticks and seeing "Hair" live up in London. Hawkwind are still a band? It's such a shame that I would not hear them now but what wonderful music and lyrics they came up with.Those were MY days!
Hawkwind are still going strong, albeit with only one original member. I saw them at the Astoria in December (The 14th or 15th time I've seen them over the years). THey were excellentI was too young to see them in teh early 70s being a child in the 60s trahter than a child of the 60s!
