The new issue of Prog is on sale today, with prog legends Hawkwind gracing the cover.
We doff our caps to those space rock legends Hawkwind as this year brings up their golden 50th anniversary celebrations. With the band on the verge of releasing their 32nd studio album, All Aboard The Skylark, as well as undertaking a UK tour which culminates in a gig at London's Royal Albert Hall, not to mention Prog writer Joe Banks' book Hawkwind And The Underground - Radical Escapism In The Age Of Paranoia being published in November, it's time to celebrate the good ship Hawkwind.
We talk to captain of the ship Dave Brock about his time at the helm and the new album, Joe Banks profiles the legendary Robert Calvert, Stacia gives Prog her first major magazine interview for years and we look at the best Hawkwind albums of the last 50 years.
