IN LOVING MEMORY OF ERVINE FREESTON WHO TOUCHED US IN HIS PASSING

ERVINE THE SPACE BARD'S CONTINUING SAGA.

Waking up from a dream in the hold of a starship
... Outward bound for deepest space
The dreams of his ancestors conditioning his mind
Searching for future worlds, to spread the seeds of his Race
His consciousness far transcends this rust-bucket yarn
So he keeps on scanning, scanning, scanning for a new home
To go beyond beyond to where no man has trod
So lets not repeat the dream,
Be happy to be God

JOURNEY IN PEACE

WITH LOVE FROM THE MIGHTY THUNDER RIDER

Robin Hood

In 2009, Nik spent some time as an extra for Ridley Scott's film Robin Hood, which was shot close to the Thunder Rider's ranch. Nik's stint was curtailed by the spectre of pneumonia brought on by countless hours on the beaches of South Wales waiting for Russell Crowe to return from lunch. These photos show Nik in costume preparing for his role, alongside the Clanranald Trust for Scotland (Combat International) Fighting Team.

Future Cities Of The Past

I had the pleasure of meeting Nik in 1994. Nik was on the road on his longest U.S. tour to date. At this time he was touring as Nik Turner's Space Ritual. The group featured Tommy Greenas,Len Del Rio and the enigmatic Helios Creed. Spaceseed was Nik's support in Atlanta and also again in 2001.
