Though he is best known as a well-respected S/F writer and editor, Michael Moorcock is a "Rock Poet." Moorcock wrote lyrics for Blue Öyster Cult and Hawkwind (e.g., his spoken-word piece: "Sonic Attack"). Besides performing with these two bands, he also has appeared on five tracks of the Spirits Burning CD "Alien Injection," released in 2008. On the "Alien Injection" CD, he is credited with singing lead vocals, playing guitar and mandolin.
In 1975, an album New World's Fair by Michael Moorcock and The Deep Fix was released. It included a number of Hawkwind regulars in the credits (Dave Brock, Simon House, Alan Powell, Snowy White). A second album, Roller Coaster Holiday, was issued in 2004 as an extended version of the band's album New World's Fair, containing alternate mixes, instrumentals and demos.
On December 1st, 2008, a new CD from The Deep Fix days entitled The Entropy Tango & Gloriana Demo Sessions will be released. These are the demo recordings that Mike Moorcock did with Pete Pavli, based mainly on MM's GLORIANA and THE ENTROPY TANGO novels on Noh Poetry Records.
The band name "The Deep Fix" was the title story of an obscure collection of short stories by "James Colvin" (AKA Michael Moorcock) published in the '60s. Also, The Deep Fix was the fictional band fronted by Moorcock's character "Jerry Cornelius."
