The uncrowned kings of mystic rock, Hawkwind have spent 30 years or more blowing their audiences away with shows that are both bizarre and exhilarating. Switched to sonic overdrive they suck you in, chew you up and spit you out screaming for more. Their success lies in the knowledge that these guys are the genuine article and absolutely nothing will stop them. They travel to distant lands, strange planets and create visions that are all at once terrifying and alluring. Hawkwind are truly masters of their universe and everyone is welcome along for the ride. This no frills footage was filmed in Preston, England during their celebrated Chaos Tour of 1986 and has become a favourite amongst fans. Hawkwind go full on psychedelic, performing bona fide classics ripped from rock 'n' roll's underbelly. As always the stage-show is a melting pot of audio-visual lunacy. 20 years does nothing to dilute their relentless eccentricity, as the stage becomes a virtual battlefield of noise and melody, mesmerizing mantras and nightmare images. This is beyond heavy rock; Hawkwind are absolutely unique, though many have attempted imitation. The aptly named Chaos is a testament to their devotion to the outlandish, their love of the unknown and their total fearlessness in the face of madness. Prepared to be sucked dry.
