Yanthyr
Before I moved to Notting Hill in the '70s I was already a dyed-in-the-wool Moorcock fan, self-weaned on Hawkmoon novels, multiverses, alternate planes of consciousness, the paradox of immortality and the mystic 70's stuff to which today's computer-gamers owe much. My stamping ground around my accommodation was perhaps similar to that of Van Morrison who, on "Slim, Slow Slider", "saw you walkin' down by Ladbroke Grove this morning" , the place of carnival gathering and 'Hawkwind' happenings, down Westbourne Grove, from the 'IT' magazine HQ & 'Pink Fairies' area of residence, passing the defiantly-scrawled "The Tigers of Wrath are Wiser than the Horses of Instruction" graffiti writ large on the wall by the Island Records building, to 'Finches' watering-hole off the Portobello Road. It was in Finches that I briefly met Moorcock, then editor of 'New Worlds' SF mag, resplendent in a kind of 'Bronco-Billy' jacket and his usual cowboy hat. A man at ease in this tavern's eternal struggle for a balance between Law and Chaos. Many of his words and lyrics were already used in collaborations with Hawkwind by the time he formulated "The Deep Fix" project, the name taken from a set of tales by his non-de-plume 'James Colvin'- who's central character 'Jerry Cornelius' happened to front a fictional band of the same title. There was a gestation period before this release emerged, including a co-written track by actor Sam Shepard. Moorcock would later pen material for "Blue Öyster Cult" in late 1979. "New Worlds Fair" is not a particularly accessible album, despite Hawkwind involvement and an appearance by Snowy White and other alumni from the defunct "Third Ear Band". A rather amateurish parody, akin to a musical rendition of "Something Wicked This Way Comes", where life is like a carnival of smoke and mirrors and nothing is as it seems. Even as an avid Moorcock fan I play it but once a year and simply treasure it for sentimental reasons. However, I give most of his books five stars...
