Seeing him play Glastonbury with his band Startled Insects in the early 80s went a long way to set me on the path the eventually lead to this website being born, so when he came to me with news of his new project that sat nicely within the musical sphere that we cover here at E&D, working with Tony Levin of King Crimson, I had to take the chance to interview him really!

Hawkwind: Days Of The Underground. Radical Escapism in the Age Of Paranoia. An interview with Joe Banks

The fact that they were so closely associated with the counterculture meant that they continually got it in the neck as ‘aging hippies’, but they were hugely influential on the early punks. Members of the Sex Pistols, Clash, Damned etc were all fans, but it was their anti-establishment, anyone-can-do-it attitude that had just as much of an impact as their music.
