Hawk Nelson Quotes:
Well, the changes are to do with different people. We`ve always had different people in and out of the band. Obviously, I`m the captain, it`s like aboard ship. We set our course and off we go. When Tim Blake was in the band, Tim Blake with his Gong influence brought a lot of nice spacey music. Each character who is in the band obviously brings in a little bit of speciality. All in all we still have our central sort of part of the ship. Which is sort of the good old electronics with the good beat behind it.
