Strawberry Bricks Entry: 
Sometime right before Hawkeaster 2013, Dave Brock's @HawkwindHQ camp sent out an ominous tweet; “Really hope this is not the year we have to say goodbye....” Had the rift with the Mighty Thunder Rider reopened? An appearance at SXSW was portent, but what was really going on? Well, now we know: Nik Turner is back, with a new album, Space Gypsy, on Cleopatra Records, a new band, and a tour coinciding with Hawkwind-proper's first US tour in decades. <p> No, this isn't Space Ritual, Hawklords, xHawkwind, or any combination of previous Hawkwind alumni.
