Hawkind have a new album out now: The Machine Stops, based on EM Forster’s sci-fi classic. If you’re a fan of Hawkwind and have gaps in their vast back catalogue look no further than here at eil.com.
We’ve got original rare UK vinyl, collectable and promotional CDs and items of memorabilia.
Here are our top 3:-
Urban Guerrilla – Archive quality 1973 French wide centred 7″ single, also featuring the classic Brainbox Pollution, housed in a unique textured picture sleeve. This single, although reaching the UK top twenty as a follow up to SilverMachine, was hastily withdrawn in the wake of some unfortunate terrorist activity at the time. Both the sleeve & vinyl are mouthwatering near mint – unheard of for French vinyl of this vintage! UP35566-J
Warrior On The Edge Of Time (1981 Japanese issue of the 1975 11-track LP, picture sleeve with Japanese/family tree insert & ‘European Rock Collection #6’ obi-strip. The sleeve is near mint & the vinyl reveals very few signs of play K22P-158
Play The Collection – 1986 UK 25″ x 35″ poster for the November & December Hawkwind Chaos tour, never available for retail sale. The poster itself remains in unrestored condition, with a little creasing at the edges where it has been stored rolled, and a certain degree of age yellowing to the paper. None of this would be particularly evident once framed and glazed. There is a small amount of historic oil staining by the use ofposter putty in the corners to mount the poster at some point, but it remains as a consequence free from any pin holes, rips or tears – A gem!
