Astounding Sounds, Amazing Music is the sixth studio album by the British rock band Hawkwind, released in 1976. It reached No. 33 on the UK album charts. The title makes references to old science fiction magazines (Astounding and Amazing Stories), the concept being that each piece of music (and its title) would be interpreted as an individual science fiction story. The record cover is a parody of the cover of these magazines, while the inner sleeve carried small ads, with each band member having their own product (e.g. Dr Brock's cure for piles, Paul Rudolph's Manly Strapon, and Simon King's Pleasure Primer).

  • Astounding Sounds, Amazing Music es el sexto álbum de estudio de Hawkwind, lanzado por Charisma en 1976. El álbum es el primero para el sello especializado en rock progresivo Charisma, quien contaba en su catálogo a nombres como Genesis o Peter Gabriel.El título hace referencia a antiguas revistas norteamericanas de ciencia ficción como Analog Science Fiction and Fact o Amazing Stories, inclusive las ilustraciones del disco, obra de Tony Hide y Barney Bubbles, representan una parodia del estilo gráfico de aquellas publicaciones, y cada una de las siete canciones fueron concebidas como historias de ciencia ficción en sí mismas. El estilo sucio y proto-punk del bajo de Lemmy Kilmister es substituido aquí por el sonido más pulido de Paul Rudolph, aunque el cambio más radical en el estilo del grupo es el que marca el regreso de Robert Calvert, esta vez como vocalista y "frontman" permanente, a diferencia del rol de poeta periférico y aleatorio que ocupaba durante sus anteriores colaboraciones con Hawkwind (por ejemplo sus divagantes alocuciones en "Space Ritual").Pero Calvert fue aún más allá: además de sus letras extravagantes y cósmicas, trajo la idea de transformar los conciertos del grupo en verdaderas puestas teatrales, con personajes específicos para ser encarnados por él mismo.El álbum llegó al puesto Nº 33 en los charts británicos.

The record cover is a parody of the cover of these magazines, while the inner sleeve carried small ads, with each band member having their own product (e.g. Dr Brock's cure for piles, Paul Rudolph's Manly Strapon, and Simon King's Pleasure Primer). This album marked the start of a new era for Hawkwind, having left the management of Douglas Smith for Tony Howard and changed record companies from United Artists Records to Charisma Records. Musically, the dirty heavy metal lead bass guitar playing of Lemmy was replaced by the cleaner, formally trained bass playing of Paul Rudolph. All members of the band were now contributing to the writing and arrangement of the music leading to more width in style, and the recording and production is better defined than previous albums. The greatest change is in the return of Robert Calvert, this time as a permanent vocalist rather than the peripheral poet role he occupied on Space Ritual. Not only did he bring crafted lyrics to the band, but he was intent on turning live shows into a piece of music theatre with specific characters for him to act out, Calvert explaining in a 1976 interview that "We're writing numbers now with visual ideas in mind, rather than trying to think of things to impose on numbers we've already got. We're trying to get the visual side of the band focussed on individuals rather than on screen projections. Nik, Dave and myself are, in some parts of the show, playing the parts of actors... All in all, it works up to quite a nice piece of theatre, spontaneous theatre that is." (en)
