Space Ritual '09 lands in London's Roundhouse

as part of a memorial tribute to Barney Bubbles

news: Monday 19th January 2009

Hawklords are to perform Space Ritual during the Sunday Implosion at The Roundhouse, London as part of a memorial tribute to the late, great creative wizard Mr Barney Bubbles, on Sunday 3rd March 2009.

The Hawklords performance of 'The Space Ritual '09' show, will be an amazing event inspired by Barney's creative art, design, cosmology and the stage presentation of his and Robert Calvert's original Space Ritual 1973 space-rock-opera show, with a hefty nod to his concept for the Hawklords' '25 Years On production of 1978.

The Hawklords line-up will feature Harvey Bainbridge, keyboards & vocals Alan Davey, bass & vocals Martin Griffin, drums Terry Ollis, drums Jerry Richards, guitar & vocals Ade Shaw, bass Steve Swindells, keys & vocals Ron Tree, and Nik Turner, sax, flute & vocals.

The band's specials guests will include Bridget Wishart and more to be confirmed.

Evocative, other-worldly gyrations by the gorgeous New Bubblettes troupe, choreographed by Angel Flame.

Inspiring, transporting/transmorgrifying/transmorfing lighting by the ever-amazing Liquid Len And The Lensmen.

'Mothership control' by Andy Dunkley (the original FM On The Road).

The event will run from 3.00pm - 11.00 pm, and will feature performers and performance all day, including Robert Calvert's play 'The Stars That Play With Laughing Sam's Dice' (for which Barney designed the stage set), performed by the Pentameters Theatre Group.

Mutoid Waste Co's weird and wonderful sculptures and happenings will also be very much in evidence.

Support bands and solo performers set to perform include Quintessence, Tracey Curtis, and others to be confirmed.

Tickets for the show are priced at £30. To buy tickets, click here.
