Terry Oakes - Choose Your Masques

Artwork by Terry Oakes for the 1982 Hawkwind LP ‘Choose Your Masques’.

I’m not on expert on Prog/Space/Kraut Rock – although I’m trying to learn more! so whilst searching for images I came across this excellent blog that focuses on the aforementioned genres: http://nostalgae.blogspot.com/
Nost-Algae’s tag line mirrors my thoughts too: “I missed out on so much by being born so late, now I’m trying to catch up on some of it”… contains scans of loads of rare/obscure 12” Sleeves¬† – definitely worth a look!
