The little known FREQ is in many ways former Hawkwind lyricist Calvert's most revealing and satisfying album, originally released in 1984 and now reissued with two bonus tracks. Calvert jettisoned the progressive big-band of stars from his first two albums and replaced them with an arsenal of electronics and advanced computer technology, yielding music that not only fit in with the then-fashionable synth-rock of the early '80s (Heaven 17, The Passage, Kevin Dunn) but also with today's tech-nomads.
The other unusual thing about FREQ is that Calvert liberally mixes his political POV within such electronic poems as the machine-over-man polemic "All the Machines are Quiet" and addresses union bastions on "Work Song." Calvert was indeed an unique entity whose concepts were often overrun within the Hawkwind camp. Solo, his lyrical flights of fancy are allowed to run free--a passionate voice in a world of noise.
