Space Rock. Where progressive rock intersects with psychedelia. Electronic organs. Lengthy solos. Synthesizers. Experimental guitars. Instrumental passages. Science fiction.
Several bands from the late 60s experimented with space rock – Pink Floyd, Gong and Hawkwind. Founding member of Hawkwind, saxophonist/flutist Nik Turner helped pioneer the genre.
While he was with Hawkwind, Mr. Turner was known for his experimental jazz style and extravagant stage presence in which he frequently wore full makeup and costumes that were inspired by ancient Egypt.
