Dedicated Hawkwind Resources

The official Hawkwind site.

The Plastic Fragment Of A Child's Toy - excellent resource curated by Stephen Dunthorne, which includes transcripts  of press cuttings and scans/images of programmes, tickets and badges. A recent update seems to have broken many of the pages, but you should be able to view everything via the archived link above.


Spirit Of The P/age - written and compiled by Knut Gerwers, this is a career-spanning Robert Calvert resource packed with commentary, interviews and quotes. It hasn't been updated since 2012, but is still live.

Starfarer’s Hawkwind Page - the best of the original online resources, Steve Youles' "less-than-reverent fan site" was a vital source of information during the writing of DOTU, particularly its extensive press cuttings transcripts. No longer live, but can be accessed via the link above.

The Hawkwind Museum - run by Dave Law, this site eventually morphed into the official Hawkwind site, but before then, it was another smorgasbord of info, cuttings and ephemera which can be accessed via the link above.

Hawkwind Daze - Japanese fan site run by Koh Futami, still live and updated regularly. Some interesting info and pics re Hawkwind's Japanese releases here.

Hawkfan - an old online archive of Brian Tawn's legendary fanzine, including scans from issues 2-10. The early editions in particular include some great live reviews and interviews from the DOTU period. 

Hawkbinge - highly entertaining podcast from veteran Hawkfan Andy Hood and HW neophyte Matt Longstaff, where they voyage through the back catalogue one album at a time. Full disclosure: DOTU is quoted from throughout the 70s episodes and they also let me babble my way through their end of the 70s episode, plus their hot takes on Somnia, The Future Never Waits and Stories From Time And Space.

Hawkwind live recordings on YouTube - there's an impressive selection here, with many from the 1970s.


There are a number of lively and informative Facebook fan groups out there, with much sharing of images, memories and music. They include: Hawkwind Fans Worldwide; Hawkwind And Related Album History; Brian Tawn’s SCRIBE (Hawkfan); Robert Calvert; The History Of Hawkwind.

There's also the official Hawkwind HQ Facebook page and Hawkwind forum.
