PXR5 is the ninth studio album by British space rock band Hawkwind, released in June 1979 on Charisma Records.

Hawkwind are an English rock band and one of the earliest space rock groups. Their lyrics favour urban and science fiction themes. Formed in November 1969, Hawkwind have gone through many incarnations and they have incorporated different styles into their music, including hard, progressive and psychedelic rock. Hawkwind both understood and allowed themselves to absorb the energies of new wave, and were also regarded as an influential proto-punk band.

PXR5 was the last to feature vocalist/poet Bob Calvert alongside fellow veterans Simon House, Simon King, and Dave Brock.

The album opens with the ruminations of a doomed race car driver on the explosive Death Trap. The atmospheric High Rise, haunts with one of Hawkwind’s most anthemic choruses.

Traditional Hawkwind themes are captured on the spacy Uncle Sam's On Mars, and the roughshod Infinity.

PXR5 reached No. 59 on the UK album charts, and drew attention at the time of release for a sleeve design that depicted the wrong way of wiring an electrical plug.

This Double LP set on limited Grey 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl is housed in a Gatefold sleeve and was pressed in Europe.
