Hawklords, Friends And Relations - 30th Anniversary Volume - A New Dawn
(Flicknife Records - 2011)
Well, we know where members of this band come from but we'll not go there and keep it to who they are now:' Hawklords '.
This is a great 11 tracker from peeps of that outfit from the then and the now and the old and the new.
There are numerous incarnations of bands on here as you'd expect with standouts being the opener 'Digital Age' by Earthlab (guitarist Jerry Richards) that was played by the Hawklords on their UK tour in October and that has a trademark Hawk riff in it; the spacey and later funky 'Felice' from Underground Zero; 'The Naked And Transparent Man' by Bob Calvert, a sinister poem with music by Alan Davey.
Then there's the excellent floaty ambient instrumental that goes by the title of 'Stream' from Harvey Bainbridge; the outstanding Bedouin that feature Alan Davey and Danny Thompson who have their 'Vision Quest' on here - pure brilliance - not to mention Alan's 'Angel Down' - an epic piece of 8 minutes of love to the ears that's pure 'Hall Of The Mountain Grill'.
As always - an out-there musical experience from members of the Hawklords and associated peeps.
"Next, of course, was Gunslinger, and from the first strike of a chord to the last, they were tight as f**k!......They are on again tonight at Legends in Newcastle, and if I did not have other plans, would go along to that gig too.""Could not agree with Pete more, Gunslinger were ABSOLUTELY awesome and if there is a better Bass player around I have never seen or heard them....."

"UNLAWFUL ODDS" REVIEWS
"...it captures the band at it's best...well impressed...live
albums are notoriously difficult to pull off, but this one doesn't just
work...it's totally mind-blowing...definitely up there with "Rory Gallagher
Live in Europe" and "Frampton Comes Alive"...although that's just my own
personal preference...I urge everyone to buy it and see for yourself."
"Gunslinger’s CD is here: It is even better than I expected.That drumming!!"
"This is a mindblowingly powerful album that deserves to be played LOUD. The sound is crystal clear and you can hear every instrument. Flicknife Records have done a great job with this release. Buy it now!!!!"
"Slick, Blow your head off, Gunmetal!! The best I've heard Gunslinger sound."
"I thought the Gunslinger studio album,'Earthquake In E Minor' was a really good album, but this live one,'Unlawful Odds', is even better."
"If you like Motorhead you'll love this - hard, loud, fast, dirty rock 'n roll with a BIG bass sound."
"Amazing Studio Quality Sounding Live Album."
"Get out and buy one coz you can bet your bottom dollar you'll want one." "Animal"
