Nik Turner's Hawkwind
Nik Turner's Hawkwind

I was in the band for 10 years, and after I left, I discovered they’d trademarked the name of the band (without me). I thought, I have a right to that name. It was my nickname, because of my pronounced, prodigious habit of spitting and flatulence. (Because of) my scurrilous habits, and the drawing of attention to them by people, I was known as Hawkwind. It was all true. I was quite shocked to find (Brock had) trademarked the name, and proceeded to sue me for using the name, for calling my band ex-Hawkwind, because I had a band that was all ex members of Hawkwind. They sued me, and I paid out about 10 grand or something. – [Chicago Tribune]

Nik Turner and his version of Hawkwind are currently on tour and hit NYC on Monday (11/23) for a show at Grand Victory in Williamsburg. Backed by Hedersleben (who played their own spacey set as well) Nik brought lots of Hawkwind favorites, including classics “Silver Machine” and “Orgone Accumulator.”

Also on the bill: Timo Ellis’ metal-pop trio Netherlands and Brooklyn rock band Dinner (not the Danish art pop musician of the same name.) Pictures of all the openers, plus more of Nik Turner (including the setlist), below…
