There's no point in making such statements. The anti-prog knobheads - Coan, Goatboy and Rayge - don't give a shit about whether any type of prog is jazzier or has more street cred. You're wasting your breath on these twerps. I cannot work out what music they actually do like and, in truth, I don't care what these smug, self-satisfied dullards consider to be acceptable.


You obviously missed my posts praising The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway!

Of course maybe I posted them when you were on your self-imposed exile after the embarrassment of Carlsson gate hence why you never read 'em.

Yes, maybe that's why

Indeed, and John Coan has been known to say that Gentle Giant, while frustrating, actually has some cool parts.

Today's word is "fudge", taken from the "alternate/ perverted live version lyrics" to King Crimson's classic "Easy Money."

Well I argued with the judge
But the bastard wouldn't budge
Cause they caught me licking fudge
And they never told me once, you were a minor

"making fudge" I believe, which is only a bit less gross.

Of course, it could just as easily have been Soyars' Delirium.

Or "packing fudge," which is more.

The only conversation I remember from the Joker was talking to Six String's wife about Herman's Hermits.

People are really PISSED about other people liking the wrong things.

I think their time would be better spent going to schoolyards and arguing with the sophomores about why their music taste is wrong, It's important to make other people like the right things at a young age. By the time you get to be my age, you are irredeemable and just bound to piss people people off with your continued existence.

No I don't think that's what Wetton is saying.

Ah, I beg to differ! Our resident prog boys say Floyd is not prog.

and they would be wrong, while Pink Floyd could be placed in other genre for parts of their career, it is generally accepted that Pink Floyd are a prog band and actually might be considered the biggest of the six giants. In fact PF are the beginning of the sub prog genre-space rock and are a large influence on many prog bands.

So I dunno... should I start a thread about Peter Hammill's music from the 1990s on? He did a couple in the '80s that weren't for me, so I just moved on. (25 albums was enough.) But he rebounded and is back to great again. I'm just picking out songs on youtube, then reading the lyrics from his site. A true force, still at it. Yep, God bless Peter Hammill. So should I start it? I don't care if I'm the only one to contribute, I wouldn't mind doing that. Or whatever, I could blow it off and take a nap. Your call.


I certainly would read and be interested in this thread! :D

If that's true - and I'm not sure it is - that would be a shame. People can get as pissed as they want - lack of engagement is a far bigger problem for me.
