Things begin with an acoustic set, but although the band played six or seven unplugged tracks elsewhere, tonight we get just three: the new album’s Ascent, golden oldie We Took The Wrong Step Years Ago and the Lemmy-penned The Watcher from Doremi Fasol Latido, which Brock dedicates to its composer. He tells the crowd that Hawkwind last played the Roundhouse in 1977, with the newly formed Motörhead as support, also revealing that a few nights ago, the vintage-era keysman Dik Mik attended a show in Ipswich: “If it wasn’t for Dik Mik getting him [Lemmy] into the band, none of this would have happened.” It’s a nice touch.
