This is the letterhead Barney Bubbles produced for Hawkwind’s Stacia Blake in 1973.
By that time Stacia – who was always billed by her first name – was an integral and popular part of the Hawkwind experience. Hence the need for headed paper.
Blake’s commanding stage presence and interpretative dancing added a vital female physicality to the aural and sonic battery the group launched on a near-nightly basis and for some fans, this writer included, they were never quite the same after her departure in 1975.
It was an honour to receive this a few months back in the post from Blake, these days an accomplished artist based in Ireland.
She had heard about the staging of Process and wanted to make her contribution, which was much appreciated, not least by fans such as Mick Jones and Jah Wobble, who remembered her role in Hawkwind with affection and admiration.
