The Pretty Things guitarist Dick Taylor, who was looking for a new venture after leaving the band, was pulled into Hawkwind playing some gigs and producing this album. After several unsuccessful attempts to capture the band's sound in the studio, it was decided simply to record it live in the studio. Album 2013 11 Songs. Попмузика 2013. Stellar Perspective.

The material features typical Hawkwind themes of otherworldly splendour and strange, glistening, aural landscapes. There are futuristic prophecies, animalistic war chants, stellar peace hymns and an ongoing self-referential opera. Stellar Variations is the sound of three music-nauts firing on all cylinders and is an essential album in the Hawkwind canon.

I'm sure seeing the name of Hawkwind Light Orchestra might not seem encouraging. One could imagine maybe they wanted to go the ELO route of chamber pop/rock creating songs in the manner of Jeff Lynne & Co. (even Mr. Lynne had to let everyone know on his website that Hawkwind Light Orchestra had absolutely nothing to do with ELO). Or maybe Hawkwind hires a light orchestra which would be completely incompatible. Luckily it's nothing of the sort. Apparently Dave Brock, Niall Hone and Richard Chadwick wanted to record more material in 2011, but couldn't have Tim Blake and Mr. Dibs present due to location inconvenience (Dibs lives in Derbyshire, Tim Blake lives in Brittany in France), so not to have fans panic and think they left Hawkwind, they name this trimmed down three piece Hawkwind Light Orchestra, but to be fair they could have just called this simply Hawkwind and just state to fans that Tim Blake and Mr. Dibs simply didn't have the time to appear.

Stellar Variations appeared late in 2012, about a year after it was completed and I can't believe what I'm hearing, but I actually like this better than what Hawkwind has been putting out in recent years! I hadn't been this enthused of a new Hawkwind release in literally years. It has everything I come to love of Hawkwind from typical Hawkwind space rockers to more experimental instrumental ambient and electronic pieces. "Stellar Perspective" shows this is indeed Hawkwind, despite the tagging of the "Light Orchestra" moniker. Dave Brock sounds so undeniably Dave Brock, and hard to believe he was 70 years old working on this! There are also some silly falsetto high pitched singing, I guess from Richard Chadwick, as he's the only other member credited to vocal duty other than Dave Brock himself. There's a line that goes: "We only live to transcend", but when I hear it, it sounds like Brock is singing: "We only live choo choo train". Thank God lyrics were printed! "All Our Dreams" starts off sounding like one of the more psychedelic songs on Blood of the Earth, but then goes through several changes, leading up to the more ambient "Damp Day in August". "It's All Lies" is very much a Hawkwind rocker. "Four Legs Good, Two Legs Bad" is a odd piece, with that line being repeated over and over with some strange monster voice referring to how wildlife is starting to take over. They also take on Tim Blake's "A Song For a New Age". The original appeared on Blake's New Jerusalem (1978), and since I've owned that album for ages I'm very familiar with it. This version is more Hawkwind-like, as electric instruments are used (the original was acoustic guitar and spacy synths). Certainly it's not as good as the original, but not bad. "We Serve Mankind" is another fantastic number too.

I don't know what they did, but to my ears, this simply a great album, showing Hawkwind can still pull it off. Sadly this album is a bit ignored, probably due to the off-putting Hawkwind Light Orchestra name, but when you hear it, you'll be glad to have it, and all Hawkwind fans should give it a try!
