Esoteric Recordings’ front-line label, ESOTERIC ANTENNA, is pleased to announce the release of the debut studio album by HAWKWIND LIGHT ORCHESTRA.
The album "Stellar Variations” showcases Hawkwind founding member Dave Brock, long serving stalwart Richard Chadwick and sharp, bright blade Niall Hone’s collection of music forged as a by-product of the tyranny of distance.
The material features typical Hawkwind themes of otherworldly splendour and strange, glistening, aural landscapes.

"Stellar Variations” is the sound of three music-nauts firing on all cylinders and is an essential album in the Hawkwind canon.

Those Were the Days - the Beatles Apple Organization
An unofficial history of the Beatles' Apple Organization 1967-2001 This is the first complete telling of the Apple story, culled from exclusive interviews with the recording artists, staff and business associates who helped make Apple a fascinating chapter in the history of both the Beatles and pop music in general. Today, the Apple office is remembered as a place where almost anyone could come in off the street and meet one of the Beatles, get funding for an outlandish art project, or just drop in to the Apple Press Office for a drink and a quick smoke. For less well-intentioned visitors, Apple was where one could go to pinch and electric typewriter, a box of LPs, or quite literally the lead off the roof of the Apple building at 3 Saville Row. But Apple was also the company that the Beatles used to discover and develop many deserving artists, including such stars as Mary Hopkin, James Taylor, Bad Finger, Hot Chocolate, Billy Preston and Mercury-award winning classical composer, John Tavener. Even a teenage Richard Branson figures in the Apple story.. Those Were The Days: An Unofficial History Of The Beatles Apple Organization 1967-2001 details the colourful history of Apple, from its inception to its current incarnation as the sole protector of the Beatles legacy. Stefan Granados has diligently been researching this project now for several years and the book also contains many very rare previously unseen photographs.

Rockdetector: A To Z of ‘80s Rock
In the 80’s Hard Rock reigned supreme. Albeit fuelled to the max by bubblegum power chords, skyscraper backcombed hairdos, eyeliner and (horror of horrors)…spandex, artists such as Quiet Riot, Ratt, Motley Crue, Skid Row, Dokken, Guns n’ Roses, Warrant, Slaughter, L.A. Guns, Great White, W.A.S.P. and Bon Jovi reigned supreme. Established bands too fully embraced the ‘image is everything’ culture and Kiss, Aerosmith, Van Halen, Alice Cooper, Whitesnake and Heart all enjoyed renewed flushes of success. Lita Ford’s dangerous curves, Lorraine Lewis’ pout and Vixen’s foxy looks dominated MTV. These artists roamed the globes arenas, biting platinum chunks of flesh out of the US album charts and sporting ever more extreme fashion faux pas with each album. Los Angeles seethed with CFC enclouded hopefuls. They might have looked like French Poodles but were as aggressive as the wiliest of wolves in their quest for fame. The 80s was primarily about the USA but the reverberations were keenly felt in Europe too. As Def Leppard launched themselves into the record books and Europe’s Joey Tempest launched a million dodgy perms. The 80s was a good time to be into Rock. Motley Crue summed it all up with ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ and Warrant rammed the point home with ‘Cherry Pie’ because that is exactly what this whole movement was about. Little did they know those songs would prove prophetic, Vince Neil later sweating it out in the strip bars whilst Jani Lane sweated just as profusely in the kitchens. Dinosaurs before their time, they were extinct before the ink had dried on the contracts. As the Grunge meteor was arcing across the horizon the majors still fell over themselves to snap up Tuff, Pretty Boy Floyd, D’Molls, Vain and Bang Tango. While it lasted, it was glorious. The music industry loved every million selling minute of it. This is the book that chronicles every cheap thrill and maps out every mascara caked moment. Each and every band, whether able to pack out Wembley or Wigan, is documented with full biographies and global discographies direct from the world’s biggest Rock devoted database - Rockdetector No. Of Pages 760 ISBN 1-901447-21-9 Category Music Encyclopedia Our Price: £20.99
