Good!

The best thing I’ve heard recently is Monument by Portico Quartet. It’s not prog, it might be modern jazz, there are some similarities with latter period Radiohead but you might like it.

When the Zep really took off. Shame it had a drum solo on it, even if it was Bonham.

Hasse Froberg & Musical Companion (HFMC) - Parallel Life

Flower Kings vocalist's side project's 5th album. Sounds very much like TFK as you'd expect with a slightly harder edge I suppose. I've never fully embraced the TFK sound but I enjoyed this on 1st couple of plays this week.

Recognisably, artwork by Ed Unitsky.

I enjoyed their track on the Cherry Red Records compilation recently posted up by robertff, so looked up their album on Spotify.

This was their only release, couple of members (Phil Ryan and John Weathers) joined Man when Big Sleep folded.

Good album.

Big Sleep - Bluebell Wood

This Winter Machine - Kites

3rd album released by this excellent neo-prog band.

Most enjoyable. They should be wider known really. Has anyone here heard them? (Or indeed heard OF them?)

I've liked most of his solo work to a certain extent but since the excellent Fate of Nations he has really shifted up the gears and produced many excellent albums, alone and with others.
