I
I just took a ride
In a silver machine
And I'm still feeling mean.
Do you wanna ride see yourself going by.
The other side of the sky

I got a silver machine.
It flies side ways thru' time

It's an electricline

It's your Zodiac sign.
I've got a silver machine

I've got a silver machine.

I said
I just took a ride in a silver machine
And I'm still feeling mean.
It flies
Out of a dream
It's antisceptically clean

It turns everything green.
Do you wanna ride see yourself going by.
The other side of the sky

I mean a silver machine.

I've got a silver machine

I've got a silver machine.

    I blame this one track for switching me on to guitar-based heavy rock. I was maybe nine or ten and watching "Top of the Pops" with my older brother and sisters. After a few bland anodyne poppy numbers, this came on in the form of concert filmed footage. The memorably ugly warty face of Lemmy Kilminster should have sent any child of my age screaming from the room. (He may only have had baby facial warts then or no warts at all, but they are there, in my memory). Older Brother expressed dissatisfaction that the stage dancer was keeping her clothes on, or had else been seriously edited. Sister said it's only seven in the evening, what do you expect? Me, I was having a rite of passage. Everything, from Lemmy's dissolute persona, to the screaming guitar, drums and keyboards, even the out-of-scale stage dancer's spaced out robotic moves – it was right. It was revelation, it was Heaven. Although the dancer seemed to tower over the guys in the band. I asked if she was a giant. Giantess, even. Brother said "no, but that's part of why they call her The Amazing Stasha". I learnt about the other part when I was much older and got to see uncensored Hawkwind gig footage. Stacia was, truly, Amazing. And built overscale. Everywhere. And the song. Wow.
