Martin Kennedy is from Tasmania and fronts an ambient collective called All India Radio. He released 4 albums in collaboration with Steve Kilbey that are very much like electronic pop. This is the only song in which Martin expressed his love for all things Floyd....

Interestingly enough, AIR last month released this cover of Julia Dream...

Lord Rother wrote:Holy Mother of God!

I discovered Earthless a few years ago, loved what I heard and then pretty much forgot about them. Looking through some old stuff came across them this afternoon and thought of this thread.

They’re not really prog, more space / psychedelic / jam but as they feature in progarchives I think they just about fit.

I think this is stunning. Some might find it boring as it’s pretty much a 25 minute guitar solo but holy crap, what a noise and well captured by the video.

I hope somebody else enjoys this! It moves ME!






Chalk me up as another who enjoyed it - very power trio - well within the broad church!

Okay, so this is quite cheesy and is overwhelmed by 1980s sounds and production values.

But you know what? I fucking love it. So uplifting. Go Jon!

I really like them. The Freeks, which I was until recently a member of, did some early recording and touring with Isiah. He gets Much respect.
