Not a band I know much about but my pal ,whose wife works in a care home in Cornwall,  just informed me that Simon House, violinist and composer of the Hawkwind band was now a resident in the home .


Apparently Simon was born in Nottingham in 1948 .


My pal asked me if I knew of him but I've never heard the Nottingham connection with the band . Anyone know of him?

Can't say he was born there but earlier in 1939 Simon's parents were living 9 Clandon Drive off Waldeck Rd, Carrington.

His father Herbert A House born 1913 was listed as a "musician", mother Dorothy House (nee Mosley).


Theres an article in the Nottm Guardian from 1969 reporting that Simon House (still of Clandon Drive) had joined a band called High Tide. It also said that prior to university he had attended High Pavement Grammar School.
