Distant Horizons

Distant Horizons is the twenty-first studio album by the English space rock group Hawkwind, released in 1997.

Towards the end of 1996, Jerry Richards, who had been contributing lead guitar to some live dates and recording sessions, joined the group permanently. Dissatisfied with the musical direction of the group, long standing bassist Alan Davey chose to leave at the end of 1996. His bass playing duties were picked up by singer Ron Tree. Rastafarian toaster Captain Rizz and keyboardist Julian "Crum" Crimmins began contributing to live dates, although neither would appear on this record.

The album's release was preceded by the "Love In Space" EP, although the lead track differs remarkably from the album version, having vocals and being produced by Zeus B. Held.

The group undertook a 32 date UK tour from September through to November to promote the album, followed by three Netherlands/Belgium dates. Some shows were recorded and issued as In Your Area and Hawkwind 1997, and some shows were professionally filmed by punkcast, but as yet unreleased.

Famous quotes containing the words horizons and/or distant:

    While it may not heighten our sympathy, wit widens our horizons by its flashes, revealing remote hidden affiliations and drawing laughter from far afield; humor, in contrast, strikes up fellow feeling, and though it does not leap so much across time and space, enriches our insight into the universal in familiar things, lending it a local habitation and a name.
    —Marie Collins Swabey. Comic Laughter, ch. 5, Yale University Press (1961)

    The modern city hardly knows pure darkness or pure silence anymore, nor does it know the effect of a single small light or that of a lonely distant shout.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)
