Hawkwind are an English rock band and one of the earliest space rock groups with lyrics that favour urban and science fiction themes. They are also noted as a precursor to punk rock and considered as the link between the hippie and punk cultures.
Formed in November 1969 by saxophone and flute player, Nik Turner and singer-songwriter guitarist, Dave Brock, Hawkwind have gone through many incarnations and styles of music. Critic Jim Green describes their trademark sound as characterised by 'that gargantuan and impenetrable pre-metal/hardcore drone, those great riffs, that inexorable drive to destinations unknown.'
