Eccentric, innovative, enigmatic, Nik is full of surprises.
From big band 'Janet Juve and the Red Hot Daddies' to soul bands 'Maurice Traveler and the Starting Handles' and 'Soulfinger'.
From circus orchestra M.D. for 'Gerry Cottle's Circus' to the esoteric mumbo jumbo jive of 'Sphynx'
From the space jazz of 'Hawkwind' as a founder (and Nik's nick-name), writing seminal anthems such as 'Master of the Universe', 'Brainstorm', and 'D-rider' as the driving force in the creation of the legend and mythology which created that band's success, to 60's ska 'Skastars'
From the pomp rock of the 'Imperial Pompadours' to musical, political, satirical punk cabaret with 'Inner City Unit'
From busking cool groovy music on the streets of Cardiff and Mexico City to Nik Turner's 'Fantastic All Stars' playing cool Latino jazz.
From equally fantastic Nik Turner's 'Galaktikos' playing big funk Latino hot grooves, to 'the Nik Turner Band' playing some of all that and more.
Guested and recorded with numerous bands, including 'Sham 69', 'The Damned','Stranglers', 'Ruts', 'Spirit' with Randy California, 'Utopians', 'Guillemots' etc.
