The SPACE RITUAL are Nik Turner (vocals, sax, flute), Terry Ollis (drums), Thomas Crimble (keyboards, vocals), Stephen Jones (guitar, vocals), Gary Smart, [bass], Chris Purdon (audio generators, synthesizers) and Miss Angel (dance).
The current SPACE RITUAL was formed 2015 A.D., through the psychic need to unite the tribes, to power the Starship to new dimensions of time, space and awareness, raising the Consciousness and Spirits in Harmony and Brotherly Love, reviving the Lost Magic, lost Music, lost Flames, one Soul, one World, one Source, one Race, one love, be there or be square. Nik, and Terry are founder-members of the, original legendary band, Hawkwind, and Thomas a featured member at the ground-breaking Festivals at the Isle of Wight and Glastonbury].
The band play modern spacey/ rocky/ jazzy/ dancey/ science/ fictional/ fantasy/ spiritual/psychedelic music, to heal and raise spirits, consciousness and awareness, promoting communication and good times, getting high, using multimedia sound/light/visual imagery to create extremely wild, whacky, wondrous weirdness in mind-boggling mind-blowing experience, each performance truly a happening.
The SPACE RITUAL have played many prestigious festivals in Britain and abroad including Glastonbury, Wickerman, Guilfest, Weyfest, and at many prestigious venues including Brixton Academy, London Astoria and many happenings in the Outer Galaxies, the Milky Way, Xibalba, and many other off-world destinations to ecstatic crowds of Sentient Beings. We look forward to seeing you.
