Tales Of The ACTION MAN: The Space Gypsy

They say that a smart man knows when he is being conned. They say that you can't kid a kidder. And if the patter sounds too good to be true, it probably is. So it's best to just keep your distance and stay clear of trouble.

Nik Turner's New Space Ritual

Nik Turner's New Space Ritual wish to say a fond farewell to the legendary guitarist Mick Slattery, who has felt the need to drop out of band activity due to health reasons, but who may occasionally feature with the band, at his pleasure. Thanx for all the great times Mick.

The band also wishes to welcome the 'Boy Wonder’ Stephen Jones on guitar. Still featuring  will be Terry ‘Caveman’ Ollis on drums, Gary ‘Slapper’ Smart on bass guitar and stick basso profundo, Thomas ‘Ironman’ Crimble on Hammond organ, Chris ‘Mekon’ Purdon on wibbly wobblies, Nik ‘Thunder Rider’ Turner on sax/flute and vocals, and the Fabuloso Miss Angel Flame, on exciting exotic dance and vibrations.

Victory for the People

Nik is featured in a short documentary by Kevin Pickering called Victory for the People.
