Do Not Panic - Hawkwind Documentary

The psychedelic, space rock sounds of Hawkwind are examined in this documentary. Started in London 1969, the band has undergone several line up changes through the years including Lemmy Kilmister as bass player/vocals from 1972 to 1975. After he was kicked out, he then formed the iconic heavy metal act Motörhead. 

Hawkwind's live show was truly a "trip" where the wild music compounded with lights, strobes, and for a period during the 1970s, an often nude statuesque dancer Stacia. Also notable is the musical dna link that Hawkwind provides between the hippie and early punk worlds.
