Hawkwind - The many talents of a saxophonist

Hawkwind - Le Petomane - The Farter
Le Pétomane or The Farter
'Rock' is a central concept for the English group Hawkwind (Ladbroke Grove, England) and in their case many rock subtype specifications are applicable, resulting in genres as hard, proto, psychedelic, space and acid rock.

One of the band members from the very beginning, saxophonist Nik Turner, gave Hawkwind its name. Turner had the habit to hawk and at the same time let out thundering farts. 

By the way, for a moment Hawkwind was called Hawkwind Zoo, probably meant to put Turners cacaphonic digestive organs, which make him a contemporary Pétomane, in the right context.
