    Gong being mentioned here on another thread has me itching for some Radio Gnome...starting things off with Flying Teapot and following it up with the rest of the trilogy, Angels Egg and You.

          A very nice way to honor Thingfish!

          Last night I took these two gems for a spin...

          Yes - Close To The Edge
          King Crimson - Larks Tongues In Aspic

          I think Thingfish would have approved ;-)

          Tonight I have a bunch on tap to kick off the weekend, starting with...

          Marillion - Script For A Jester's Tear

          By the way this stellar debut album from Marillion is getting a re-issue this April in a super deluxe box set with tons of extra goodies...

          http://marillion.com/shop/albums/remast49.htm

          Have a rocking great weekend everyone! :-)

            Steeleye Span. I used to listen to them back in the seventies and rediscovered Maddy Prior in the early naughties because she had been doing recordings of Christmas Carols with a band called The Carnival Band. Steeleye Span had done some good stuff around that time. Since then they have added a lot of new members including some youngsters and revitalised again and have moved towards a heavier rock sound. A few years ago they did a concept album based on Terry Pratchett's Wintersmith and other books in that series; this was at Sir Terry's request and he appears briefly himself.

              I’ve been consuming Hawkwind like it was on special offer in a hashish den. I just finished Palace Spring and I’m starting California Brainstorm

                You can never overdose on Hawkwind Kevin!

                Yesterday I put on Novella from Renaissance which I haven't listened to in years. Brilliant symphonic prog rock splendor and Annie Haslam's vocal is so beautiful.

                I finally replaced an old worn out pair of headphones today and broke them in with one of the discs from King Crimson's Starless box set. I chose disc 12 live at the Stadttheater in Augsburg, Germany 3/27/1974. It's a stellar sounding live recording from my all time favorite lineup of the Crims and it sounded even more incredible in the new headphones, there were many moments when you felt as if you were actually at the concert.

                  I’m a big Renaissance fan. For me, Novella is the last of their great albums. But, then, I’m very fond of Betty Thatcher’s lyrics. Can You Hear Me is incredible.

                    My boss recommended a guy called Gary Clark Jr who’s currently a Thing in the US.

                    He caused a stir recently by publishing a song called This Land which is a visceral take on the racism he suffered from locals when he bought a farm and moved his family in.

                    His most recent album, also called This Land, is very good but his earlier ones, especially Blak and Blu, are excellent. He’s from Austin, Texas and there’s a lot of Stevie Ray Vaughan in him.
                    Let me tell you a story 'bout a poor boy....

                      Psychotic Waltz has released a new album today called "The God-Shaped Void". For those who don't know the band, I would say that it is the same, within the prog metal context, as if Gentle Giant released a new album. Their last album before the current one, Bleeding, was released in 1996. Psychotic Waltz unlike most of prog metal bands is a dark, moody, slow-paced sometimes, heavily odd signature-based, atmospheric, heavy and kind of spiritual.

                      Their official web site, http://psychoticwaltz.com/, has been maintained active all these years by their guitar mastermind Dan Rock, who is the half part of a very complex guitar interplay accompanying Brian McAlpin.

                      Their come back is as amazing as the return of the singer John Arch, my favorite living singer, of Fates Warning and Arch Matheos.

                      Great day.

                              Johansson Brothers- Sonic Winter expanded edition
                              If you don't know the brothers Anders and Jens, they are two Swedish musicians which have been played as guest musicians, band members and session musicians in many many bands in the last 30 years. Anders is a drummer and Jens is a keyboardist. Their skills range from Purple-ish/Rainbow Hard Rock to jazz fusion ( they have an album with Allan Holdsworth ) and neoclassical metal.
                              Sonic Winter lies between Purple, Rainbow, Malmsteen and Prog Rock. The good thing is I paid 1,5 dollars for the album on google play music store. I bought another of their albums as well.
