    The Assassins Biography

    Formed in 1969, Hawkwind are a prolific and pioneering space-rock group from the UK. Within weeks of their formation, the band had made a name for themselves on the free festival circuit and would perform live without fee wherever they were able. By the time of their 1971 album '[r=459829]', Hawkwind were infamous for their science fiction themed music and theatrical concerts, the latter renowned as exhibitions of pulsing electronics, dazzling light shows, LSD consumption and (from 1971-75) a nude dancer in the form of [a1787428] .
    Despite a near-constant revolving door of members, Founder member Dave Brock has been the sole mainstay and the core of the band since its inception and has steered the band from its psychedelic rock roots into flirtations with heavy metal, new wave, ambient and techno. Notable contributors have included "accidental" bassist Lemmy (who would go on to greater fame with [a=Motörhead]), [a=Cream (2)]'s Ginger Baker and science fiction writer [a=Michael Moorcock].

    Band members: Tim Blake, Dave Brock, Richard Chadwick, Niall Hone, Jonathan Hulme Derbyshire, Magnus Martin
    Band ex-members: , Keith Hale, Harvey Bainbridge, Nik Turner, Paul Rudolph, Robert Calvert, Ginger Baker, Robert Heaton, Clive Deamer, Del Dettmar, Simon King, Simon House, Huw Lloyd-Langton, Terry Ollis, John Clark (3), Adrian Shaw, Martin Griffin, Dik Mik, Michael Moorcock, Andy Anderson, John Harrison (2), Alan Davey, Crum, Jerry Richards, Ron Tree, Dave Anderson (3), Jason Stuart, Steve Swindells, Danny Thompson (3), Thomas Crimble, Alan Powell, Bridget Wishart, Paul Hayles, Viv Prince, Mick Slattery, Ian Fraser Kilmister, Keith Kniveton, Phillip Reeves, Rik Martinez, Haz Wheaton

    1.UK Punk Rock band from the early 80's famous (for me anyway) for their track on the Mortarhate compilation double LP "We Won't Be Your Fuckin' Poor". Other bands on that album were Conflict, DOA, The Fiend, Political Asylum, Toxic Reasons, etc.

    2. In 1986 Jim Thackery began touring with The Assassins, a six-piece original blues, rock and R&B ensemble which he had previously helped start as a vacation band when The Nighthawks took one of their rare breaks. Originally billed as Jimmy Thackery and The Assassins, the band toured the U.S. Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, South, and Texas regions.

    The Assassins released a variety of recordings on the Seymour record label, two on vinyl (No Previous Record and Partners in Crime) and the 1989 CD "Cut Me Loose".

    Washington D.C.'s Assassins serve up a musical deli platter on their third album for the North Carolina-based Seymour label.

    Led by guitarist Jim Thackery, a 14-year veteran of the Nighthawks, and vocalist Tommy Lepson, the Assassins deliver a steaming helping of rock, R&B, blues and gospel on "Cut Me Loose". Lepson's smoky vocals highlight the driving minor key blues "Keep Cool (Don't Be a Fool)", the gospel-drenched "Take Me in Your Arms" and the Memphis-style soul ballad "If You Go".

    Thackery's bluesy guitar work shines on songs like "I'm Changin'" and the title track, though-to their credit-the Assassins seem more interested in showcasing their songs than their considerable instrumental prowess. An album well worth hunting down for blues and roots music fans.

    In 2015, FX TV Show Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll created the "fictional" band named The Assassins, with Gigi (played by Elizabeth Gillies) as the lead vocalist.
