The Psychedelic Warlords is a band configured around Alan "Boomer" Davey (Hawkwind bassist for 20 years) that has come together to celebrate the 40th anniversary of one of the best live albums ever made, Hawkwinds "Space Ritual", released in 1973.
To achieve authenticity great effort has been taken to re-produce the exact sounds of all the instruments from Space Ritual to achieve sonic authenticity and re-create (as close as possible), the genre- and brain-imploding classic in its entirety.
This was 1st tried out at SRS fest in June 2012 and the response was amazing.! One Hawkwind fan actually said it was the best Hawkwind gig he has seen for 20 years.!
This is purely a project for all Hawkwind fans to experience that golden era of Hawkwind's history again but for some younger fans it'll be their first time.! With his 20 years of fronting Hawkwind the fans know that with Boomer at the helm they can trust it will be something special.! Lemmy's unique Bass style drives the Space Ritual album, a style Alan mastered with some tips from Lemmy himself, making this project unique to The Psychedelic Warlords. A tour is being booked for 2013 with gigs in the UK and Europe. They have also just been confirmed as the headline band on the Thursday night at the prestigious Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Holland on 18th April 2013,
A celebration of space, time and psychedelic luminosity with Alan Davey, Vince Cory, Meurig Griffiths, Radio Ray, Rich Om and special guests, this will be something truly special.
