HAWKWIND LEGEND NIK TURNER RELEASES NEW ALBUM SPACE FUSION ODYSSEY FEAT. MEMBERS OF THE DOORS, GONG, SOFT MACHINE, AMON DÜÜL II AND OTHERS!
Dubbed the Interplanetary Arkestra (hat tip to Sun Ra), the group includes some of the most gifted and groundbreaking musicians of his generation such as legendary jazz drummer Billy Cobham, Doors' guitarist Robby Krieger, Steve Hillage & Gilli Smyth of Gong, Soft Machine’s John Etheridge, Amon Düül II founder John Weinzierl and many more! Space Fusion Odyssey is set to land in July of this year courtesy of Purple Pyramid Records.
The album sees Turner depart on a whole new kind of spaceship, a musical project that finally frees him from the gravitational pull of traditional rock music orbits and launches into new stratospheres of jazz, blues, fusion, and other eclectic styles heretofore unknown to man.
Check out the video for “Hypernova” featuring some truly mind blowing guitar work from both Robby Krieger and Megadeth's Chris Poland: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwWnFbgf2Ag
