Argentinian prog band’s debut album from 2006. They were formed with the aim of creating an audio visual show and by all accounts the shows were quite spectacular.

Symphonic but with lots of twists - bit of tango, lots of violin and quiet piano passages, decent guitar, some heaviness, in large parts instrumental.... it’s a very good mix actually. Vocals are delivered in good English (heavily accented are a bit of a turn-off for me).

William Gray - Living Fossils (and no, I have no idea where the band name comes from, not that anyone was asking as it happens.)

It’s a pop /rock album, reminiscent of much of the synth dross that dominated the 80s. Really really bland.

Sounds as though they were stoned whilst recording this album. A fine example of progressive rock from 50 years ago.

Well, psychedelia did lead to underground, which led to progressive, which did lead to prog.

As featured in the Prog Cup, some excellent yet sadly obscure prog from 1971 :ugeek:

Kaleidobolt - Bitter

Finnish 3some. Psych prog - they make a heck of a racket, but although I can see the attraction it’s a bit too noisy / heavy for my tastes.

Maarts - do you mean you are reading the Tull book or the attached article about the Tull book/

If the former - is the 7" ant good? I reckon not....
