Blake, Tim

Entry updated 29 October 2021. Tagged: Music, People.

(1952-    ) UK composer and musician. In addition to playing keyboards with Hawkwind, Blake released a number of solo works, with one, Blake's New Jerusalem (1978), of particular genre interest. Blake's generally slow, throbbing synthesizer playing and reedily plangent voice imagines a future Utopia that includes his titular City as well as the deep space beacon of "Lighthouse" (a song also recorded by Hawkwind). The album's high reputation may be linked to its current commercial unavailability. [AR]
