Beginning with the Hawklords in 1978, HARVEY BAINBRIDGE has proven himself to be one of the longest tenured HAWKWIND veterans to date. A one man dynamo, he surrounds himself on stage with keyboards, synthesizers, and samplers. Harvey is known lyrically for his socially relevant commentaries and can soothe you with dreamy, spacey ambiance - or jolt your consciousness awake with his trancey, pulsating beats and direct vocal approach! His signature Hawkwind compositions such as "Dream Worker", "The Changing", "T.V. Suicide", and "Back in the Box" shows that Harvey has an acerbic wit and very keen observation while his contributions to Hawkwind classics like "Valium Ten", "Free Fall", "Angel Voices", "Coded Languages", "Dust of Time", "Mutation Zone", "Joker at the Gate", and the increasingly prophetic "Fall of Earth City" have helped Hawkwind maintain their legendary underground status.

SPACESEED hails from Atlanta, GA and play their own unique brand of spacey, high energy, rock & roll... loud, raucous, and almost punk-ish at times! They released "Future Cities of the Past Pt. 1" and did a 13 date US tour with NIK TURNER in 2004. This year they joined forces with HARVEY BAINBRIDGE and will release "The Empire of Night" on the newly formed Zeta Reticuli label.

THE SOLAR FIRE LIGHTSHOW is an eye assaulting, mind bending, psychedelic stew of colorful geometric designs, B/W moires', oil wheels, strobes, and more - all combined with some very striking images of deep space and beautiful alien planetscapes! They've toured with HAWKWIND, OZRIC TENTACLES, GONG, PORCUPINE TREE, and NIK TURNER and have done light shows for many others over the years.

Beginning with the Hawklords in 1978, Harvey Bainbridge has proven himself to be one of the longest tenured Hawkwind veterans to date and will still perform with them from time to time. He has long ago developed a unique musical style of his own and quite often will surround himself with keyboards, synthesizers, samplers, and other such devices that he is so fond of using.
A one man dynamo, Bainbridge is known lyrically for his socially relevant commentaries which are both humorous and insightful. Musically, he will lull you with dreamy and spacey ambiance - only to jolt your consciousness awake with his trancey, pulsating beats and direct vocal approach!
His signature Hawkwind compositions such as "Dream Worker", "The Changing", "T.V. Suicide", and "Back in the Box" shows that Harvey has an acerbic wit and very keen observation. His many contributions to other Hawkwind gems over the years like "Valium Ten", "Free Fall", "Angel Voices", "Coded Languages", "Dust of Time", "Mutation Zone", "Joker at the Gate", and the (increasingly prophetic) "Fall of Earth City" have certainly helped Hawkwind to maintain their legendary underground status throughout the Dark Ages of hair metal and new wave.
Since the early 1980's, Harvey has periodically released his solo and collaborative works on the side - most recently "Harvey Bainbridge Live @ Strange Daze 2000" and "Red Shift" - along with the CD's "Afrodiziac", "Orisha", and "Diamonds and Toads" from his days with the Alman Mulo Band.
His successful solo tour of the United States in late 2000 (leading up to his headlining the Strange Daze 2000 SpaceRock Festival) was followed by him teaming up with Mr. Quimby's Beard for their 2001 US Tour. Since then he has been working on new material while doing the few odd English gigs, both solo and with Simon House, and appearing on bills with Alan Davey's "Bedouin".
Warm and friendly, Harvey is a true free spirit and a gentle man. He will escort you down some of the less traveled corridors of your mind with his thought provoking lyrics as he keeps your face smiling - and feet moving - with his amazingly modern & trancey beats!
