Quark, Strangeness and Charm – Hawkwind

Copernicus had those Renaissance ladies Crazy about his telescope.
Hawkwind does sci-fi pop. The title track, Quark, Strangeness and Charm is actually professor Brian Cox’s, the metrosexual Magnus Pike, favourite Hawkwind track. I actually just made that up, it is The Iron Dream.
Even though Nik Turnerless, it is still a good album, and quite commercial. My favourite track by far on this album is the wonderful multi-layered Hassan-i Sabbah. A political song of sorts about the Middle East through the eyes of Opium, I guess they just wanted to experiment with different hallucinogens.
