Hawkwind, Wilko Johnson – Aylesbury Friars gig

Hawkwind, Wilko Johnson and Kris Needs to play landmark Friars gig, 28 May

Aylesbury’s legendary Friars will be club celebrating its 42nd birthday in customary raucous style with a bang as both Hawkwind and the mighty Wilko Johnson tread the recently refurbished boards. Our very own Kris Needs will be the DJ for the night – EYEPLUG caught up with him in a rare free moment, ‘On Saturday May 28, Hawkwind will be able to boast the distinction of playing all four phases of Friars Aylesbury, having debuted at the original venue at Aylesbury Ex-Servicemen’s Club in 1970, playing with the Lemmy lineup at the Borough Assembly Hall in 1972 and later the Civic Centre. They’re promising stilt-walkers, dancers and all sorts of inter-galactic whoopee,’ he explained.

‘Wilko Johnson is an old Friars hero from the early Dr Feelgood gigs in 1974, appearing with Normal Watt-Roy from the Blockheads (the man who played the bass on the Clash’s ‘Magnificent Seven’). Therefore, the sounds I’ll be spinning should be an interesting blend of space rock and rock ‘n’ roll, sandblasted by punk and psych classics.’

In addition to this, for those of you who can’t bear to pull yourself away from the exciting world of corporate sporting events, the venue will be showing the Champions League Final on a big screen.
