Trensmat Sonic Attack Trilogy (TR013-15)
Acid Mothers Temple/White Hills
This is a series of three split 7”s celebrating the music of Hawkwind. Each of these bands, well known on the underground psych rock scene, give their own unique take to 6 songs from the 70s Hawkwind and some of them really are awesome at channelling that stoned spirit of Hawkwind. Both Mudhoney (Urban Guerrilla) in a slightly punked up version and Mugstar, with a killer version of Born to Go, slay. Bardo Pond, give a stoned nod to Lord of Light while Kinski take on Master of the Universe and take it really slow like the original version from the Dawn of Hawkwind CD. The White Hills take on Be Yourself from the first Hawkwind record and do a pretty cool and psyched out version coming into the theme of the song at the end. Acid Mothers Temple go full throttle into their psychic universe with Brainstorm. A brilliant set of three 7” records. Good luck finding them as they are sold out at the label source.
