Atomic Sunrise


Atomic SunriseBack in 1970 between March the 9th and 15th a fantastic line-up of emerging talent appeared at The Roundhouse, Chalk Farm in an event called Atomic Sunrise. Amongst such luminaries as Black Sabbath, Arthur Brown and Quintessence were early appearances by none other than Hawkwind, Genesis and David Bowie.

The timing is wonderful – Genesis were weeks away from a contract and this is the first ever Hawkwind line-up.

More than that, there is footage surviving that one day should appear on DVD! As part of that journey there is a chance to see some of the material at The Roundhouse this March the 11th – 13th with 100 tickets per evening at £18 each. The website currently only lists the first two nights but I have been in touch with the organisers who tell me that the third night will be added!

Is this not good news?
