Now Hear This: Robert Calvert | The Last Starfighter

Contemporaries & followers retool the late Hawkwind frontman's solo recordings.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “One of the most charismatic and cutting-edge visionaries to emerge out of London’s psych-rock scene of the ’60s & ’70s, Hawkwind frontman Robert Calvert gets rediscovered and revamped by a superb collection of next-gen artists!

The Lost Starfighter features remixes by indie-noise icons Xiu Xiu, chillwave group Small Black, post-punkers Soft Kill plus darkwave duos Xeno & Oaklander and Sixth June as well as veterans A Flock Of Seagulls, Richard Butler and The Damned’s Rat Scabies!

The set includes tracks from both Calvert’s solo albums as well as rare demos that offer a glimpse of where he was headed artistically — and what he might have sounded like if he was still making music today!”
