A Hawk And A Hacksaw

I had forgotten about The Hawk (if they were a conventional rock band would that be their fan selected abbreviation?)

I owe the Hawk for introducing me to Neutral Milk Hotel, Jeremy Barns' previous band and author of perhaps the last great old fashioned album, In An Airplane Over The Sea. But that isn't to diminish the power of The Hawk. Talking of Hawks, or Hawkmen, I rewatched Flash Gordon the other day and it makes a great alternative to Star Wars much how Barbarella makes a great alternative to 2001.
