Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered edition of this 2001 solo release from Hawkwind leader Dave Brock. Memos And Demos comprised recordings made at Dave's studio in Devon over a few years and has been hailed by Hawkwind fans as one of the best of Brock's collection of solo releases. Featuring tracks such as 'Didn't Have a Problem', 'Kauai', a reworking of Hawkwind's 'Love in Space' and 'Distant Islands', the album revealed the many facets of Dave Brock's musical character. Unavailable for some years, this reissue has been newly remastered and includes a new essay and fully revised artwork. Atomhenge.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of Dave's Top Solo Records January 13, 2010
Format:Audio CD
********************Personnel
Dave Brock: Everything on every track

********************Technical Stuff
You should have no sound quality issues. The mastering, mixing, and recording are all good.

********************The Music
This album was released in 2001 and consists of recordings made by Dave in his home studio. Some were experiments and some were potential Hawkwind songs. On the whole, most tracks succeed.

track 1: "Clouded Vision" This is the finished track, unlike the one that appears on "Distant Horizons". Apparently Hawkwind's manager Doug Smith released Distant Horizons before it was finished which angered Dave, and resulted in Smith's sacking.

track 2: "State of Mind (instrumental version)" A monster of a track. This instrumental gem features some stellar guitar work from the captain against a great sequenced backdrop.

track 3: "State of Mind(vocal version)" This is a substantial reworking of track 2, and not just adding vocals. It is slower and darker, and less synths.

track 4: "Tune-ing In" Simple 4/4 beat with 2 note bassline with some guitar interrupted after about a minute with an organ based reggae tune.

track 5: "Kauai" A short, epic sounding instrumental synth piece.

track 6: "Morpheus" One of the weak tracks, the less said the better.

track 7: "Find The Right Way" Sounds like something from a Portishead album.

track 8: "Didn't Have A Problem" An update of "In The Office" from the Agents of Chaos album, nothing special.

track 9: "Luna" Wah-wah feuled riffing song about having to euthanize a horse. Quite a potent song.

track 10" "Love In Space" Another reworked version of a Hawks song. Unnecessary.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brock Stretching Out a little April 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Overall good Brock fare...he does not stray far from the Hawkwind motif; included is a variation of 'love in space'; although there are forays into techno that work rather well..
Imagine dancing to Hawkwind? It's here.
A few 'filler' songs, but overall worth collecting.
