Review of 'Evolving Entities' by Hawkwind biographer Ian Abrahams.

Where does it fit within our genre? Well, it’s a inventive, imaginative Hawkwind derivation in a lot of places – that’s to say it wears its influences on its sleeve and its predominant influence is the band that really causes us all to be here enthusing about space-rock in the first place. And in terms of being Hawkwind influenced it has something of an 80s Hawkwind vibe, but not in that Heavy Metal or Grungy way, more that it has the atmosphere or aura of 80s Hawkwind in its thoughtful, trippy keyboards (go and listen to ‘After The Fall’ in this respect and you’ll hear what I mean) and it’s as though it’s a Hawkwind as Hawkwind might have been if dominated by Harvey Bainbridge and Huw Lloyd-Langton… and then it’s also Hawkwind as a ‘lost’ Dave Brock solo album from the time of Earthed To The Ground. It’s a soft rock space-rock, floating in dreams, easy going and peaceful and instantly likeable.

What’s it all about? It says it’s “a concept album that explores the themes of conspiracy theories, reptilian bloodlines, alien life forms, UFOs, the exploration of outer and inner space, the fall of man and the coming of the new age.” Sitting listening to it on my computer the words just drift across its surfaces and that’s possibly what’s intended. There’s comfortingly repetitive lyrics on the title track that are breathed over some light and airy music, again keyboard-led but leading into some nice guitar. “Guardians from a higher place take us to another place.” The words aren’t the important bit, it’s all about the delightful sounds that they float upon.

‘Elohim’ crosses over into Tangerine Dream territory, slipstreams slightly away from space-rock to a degree but still has a languid spaciousness that intoxicates. When it detours from that modus operandi it’s still wearing its soft rock credentials - ‘Beyond The Sun’ rocks up and rocks out but it only seems heavy in contrast to what’s come before, its riffs and Eastern lines are robust but hardly muscular but its a nice and steady beat and in any case, ‘Starlight’ takes us back around again to what’s best about this album, the gentle and elegant space keyboard sound that absorbs the listener in a diverting and pleasing manner.

Track Name: Our Name Is Man
We took the oil
We brought you steel
Our name is man we made the wheel.
Our time is short
There's not long left
There's nothing left for all the rest.

Earth Air Fire Water
Mother Father Son and Daughter

We are the past the present and the future
We are the mystery of the universe.
Track Name: Reptilian Insect Brain
I see you, you see me,
We see others differently.
I see black, you see white,
Time for all tribes to unite.
Objects move when we look back,
Magnetic force repel-attract.
Objects move when we look back,
Magnetic force repel-attract.
This whole world has gone insane,
Reptilian insect brain.
This whole world has gone insane,
Reptilian insect brain.
This whole world has gone insane,
Reptilian insect brain.
This whole world has gone insane,
Reptilian insect brain.
Reptilian, reptilian, reptilian insect brain.
Track Name: After The Fall
On the shores of desolation lies a world with no sun.
People cursing their damnation, they have nowhere to run.
From the all embracing sadness, flowing rivers of tears
That will baptize you with madness,
Multiplying your fears.

On, on and on, towards nothing at all.
But where will we go after the fall.

Memories of a world of beauty where we prospered and thrived.
We were told to do our duty, but no-one there survived.
In our child-like state of wonder, we unlocked hidden doors.
But we angered Gods of thunder, banished forever more


On, on and on, towards nothing at all.
But where will we go after the fall.

Track Name: Evolving Entities
Entities,evolving,entities,revolving.
Entities,evolving,entities,dissolving.

Guardians from a higher space take us to another place.
Love and joy we must embrace to help safeguard the Human race.
Track Name: Beyond The Sun
Keep yourself together (We're beyond the sun)
Heading for forever (We're beyond the sun)
Will we get there ever? (We're beyond the sun)
'Til the twelfth of never (We're beyond the sun)

And there's no turning back
And there's no exit track
And we know the future's black
And we know there is no turning back
No turning back
No turning back
No no

Our race is run
Heading for forever we're beyond the sun
All our futures are now undone
Beyond the sun.
