“LASTWIND Return Of A Sonic Assassin Flicknife SHARPCD12055 LASTWIND is the vehicle of erstwhile Sonic Assassin Paul Hayles hence the album title. And what an album it is! From the moment the opening instrumental track settles into its trancey ambient synth groove, you know things bode well Unsurprisingly enough, the Hawkwind influences are never too far away and 'Winds Of Time' bears an uncanny resemblance to 'Magnu'. With twin guitars and bass grinding away over Hayles spacey keyboards, Lastwind are really heavy at times and there is some really groovy, wigged out wah-wah on the Hendrix style rocker 'She's A Girl'. But they have a knack of incorporating a laid back skanky vibe too- the infectious 'Day Trippers' for example. Even if the lyrics are a little clumsy at times, musically this album is nothing less than you'd expect from a line up boating a collective alumni from Hawkwind, The Groudhogs and cult West Country stoner rock bands The Heads and Gonga. ”
