Robert Calvert wrote and sang the lyrics, this being Hawkwind's only studio recording with a Calvert vocal prior to his rejoining the band as a permanent frontman and vocalist in After deliberation and the brief notion of promoting the b-side instead "Brainbox Pollution", which dealt with the effects of drug misuse , the band's management opted to withdraw the single stating that "Although the record was selling very well, we didn't want to feel that any sales might be gained by association with recent events - even though the song was written by Bob Calvert two years ago as a satirical comment, and was recorded three months ago.
I thought that record was what everything was about in the s. Calvert originally claimed the lyrics were a satire, but later claimed that "it didn't surprise me that it was banned by the BBC at all, in fact, I expected it to cause a lot of controversy". They were anarchists of some sort The Angry Brigade - making bombs in your basement and all that.
Jazz Latin New Age. Aggressive Bittersweet Druggy. Energetic Happy Hypnotic. Romantic Sad Sentimental. Sexy Trippy All Moods. This is a poor sound quality audience recording licensed by Nik Turner. The recording has been released numerous times under different names, with different covers and bundled into box sets. In , the whole set from the band's performance was issued under the title Empire Pool Wembley , although claimed to be from a different recording source, this also suffers from poor sound quality.
But Nik Turner's sci-fi nightmare poem "In the Egg" could readily have replaced "Sonic Attack" also present here among the band's most chilling pronouncements, while it is impossible to remain unaffected by the coupling of "Wage War" -- a Burroughs-ian rampage through a future uprising -- and "Urban Guerilla," the band's then-newly released and banned single. The imagery is as astounding as it is violent, a blow-by-blow recipe for the overthrow of civilization that is just as terrifying today as it was feasible at the time.
