“While we've seen conglomerations of former Hawkwind members playing interpretations of Hawk standards before, few have cut new material together. Nik Turner's brigade of Hawks, Space Ritual, offered up Otherworld and ticked most boxes, but We Are One - from a band including Harvey Bainbridge and Steve Swindells from the original Hawklords, Adrian Shaw from the classic Quark, Strangeness & Charm-era group, and 90s comrades Ron Tree and Jerry Richards, goes further in developing its own strand of Hawk-lore. The original 1978 Hawklords project was a Bob Calvert and Barney Bubbles concept on the plight of the individual in an increasingly technological society. This resurrection of the name doesn't particularly tread the same path and, generally, avoids reliance on past glories. There are, however, nods to previous Hawk-styles and an overarching environmentalism that, though heavy-handed in places, nonetheless invokes a Hawkwind ethos. We Are One touches on early Damned and Stranglers, too”
