Legendary Hawkwind member Nik Turner will be performing with Prog-Metal ensemble OHM (led by ex-Megadeth, guitarist Chris Poland) at the Baked Potato in Studio City, CA on March 26, 2013. Nik Turner was a founding member of Hawkwind during what has been considered their most commercially successful and critically acclaimed period for the band from 1970 to 1976. He wrote/co-wrote some of the group's most popular songs such as “Brainstorm” and “Master Of The Universe”. Hawkwind's 4th and possibly most popular album 'The Space Ritual Alive in Liverpool and London' was recorded in 1972 (released in May 1973). Reaching #9 in the UK album charts and #179 in the Billboard Top 200, the double-record was recorded during the tour to promote the band's 'Doremi Fasol Latido' (third) release. The Space Ritual show attempted to create a full audio-visual experience. The performances featured dancers, lightshow by Liquid Len and poetry recitations by Robert Calvert.
Audience members attending The Baked Potato show can expect heavy jazz-fusion and space rock - the performance will be a truly unique, mind-blowing experience! Nik Turner will be fronting the show on vocals, flute and sax, with OHM backing him.
