I nearly like Christiaan Bruin and his many projects but just not quite. Time to give up I think. Just don’t get on with his mellow but somehow strained throaty vocals, and on this one the narrative which always gets in the way for me.

I really struggle with The Flower Kings for some reason - but this is a FANTASTIC track.

This has got elements of fusion and veers close to tuneless cacophony at times but it works for me.

Ages since the debut album was released, hopefully there’ll be something new from them soon as they were at Progtoberfest last year so are still active.

Comic strip to Supper’s Ready.

An interesting way to listen / watch to THE classic prog song.

Natalie Merchant (she of 10,000 Maniacs).

Marvellously intimate and flawless acoustic set at NPR Tiny Desk....

Shub-Niggurath - Les morts vont vite (1986)

I've been listening to this album a lot lately. I wasn't totally convinced upon first listen, but overtime, it's grown into a masterful work within the avant-prog subgenre for me. For fans of dark chamber-rock infused prog and can be quite heavy at times.

Playing next, this gem from early Fairport. Great album, remember hearing this for the first time on some radio show in the 60s.

Some fine music but, highlighting once again, the lack of a decent vocalist. I always feel that prog bands require a distinctive vocalist eg Anderson, Gabriel, but so many ...Flash, Greenslade, Camel, Crimson etc have vocalists who sound as though they'd rather be in a blues band or are not very good at all

Do I take it that you are including Lake and Wetton? I don't think Lake can be faulted on ITCOTCK but he may have sounded somewhat indifferent on Poseidon. With Wetton, I think it was the material, particularly some of the lyrics, that often let him down plus it can't have been easy for a singer in the maelstorm of music that the band was making at that time.

Certainly influenced by the west coast bands, shame they didn't take this a step further really like this album.

I just find them incredibly weak vocalists with very limited range. However, wonder how they would have sounded if Ferry had got the gig ? :o

Not as good as Desolation Boulevard but some memories of teenage years and my 1st “music centre”.
