Nik Turner rocks The Echoplex in Los Angeles, Ca! Joined by his backing band: Jurgen Engler, founder of German band Die Krupps on guitar, audio generator , synthesizer; Nicky Garrett, founder of the UK Subs, on guitar; Geoff Miles, of the 1970′s punk band Chelsea, on bass; and Jason Willer on drums from UK Subs/ Alaric/ Cross Stitched Eyes
Nik Turner is the sax player, flutist, sometime singer and co-founder of legendary space-rock band Hawkwind. The group took music to a truly extraterrestrial level in the mid-’70s, and its echoed-to-infinity live album, Space Ritual, remains a mind-melting classic even today. (You can hear Turner honking mightily on songs like “Time We Left This World Today” and “Orgone Accumulator.”) After the various personal and legal crises that followed Turner’s eventual final split from Hawkwind, he orchestrated his own Hawkwindian outfit (named after Space Ritual) and committed to the same kind of screaming, sci-fi insanity.
