Hawkwind's impact and influence spans both decades and genres. Psychedelic '60s and hard rock '70s, the band's line-up has over time included Nick Turner, Robert Calvert, Simon House, Ginger Baker, Lemmy Kilmister, Alan Davey and leader/founder Dave Brock. The English outfit has inspired decades of highly respected musicians and their songs have been covered by artists large and small. Shot Down In The Night documents a 1979 Winter tour gig in the U.K. where the electronics and guitars frequently go head to head, generating a sonic duel with the the real winner being the listener. Classic tunes like "Spirit of the Age," "PXRS," "Silver Machine" and the obligatory favorite "Brainstorm," are given savagely rhythmic astral readings that will not disappoint.
