Perhaps Anekdoten´s best...

Ricochet


October 4rth, in the Boerderij, Zoetermeer. I´ll be there.

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Van Der Graaf Generator's Undercover Man:



Including saxophonist/flutist David Jackson. oh wow.

Re: Bonnie the Cat's, formerly know as Stupid Dream - PROG ROCK thread!

Another major favourite of mine:



"Yes and every bloody emperor's got his hands up history's skirt
As he poses for posterity over the fresh-dug dirt.
Yes and every bloody emperor with his sickly rictus grin
Talks his way out of nearly anything but the lie within
Because every bloody emperor thinks his right to rule divine
So he'll go spinning and spinning and spinning into his own decline.

Imperceptible the change as one by one our voices falter
And the double standards of propaganda
Still all our righteous rage.

By this we are all sustained: our belief in human nature.
But our faith diminishes - close to the finish,

We're only serfs and slaves
As the empire decays..."


Damn - dark, fantastic, beautiful - and sadly enough -so true.

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

YOU LUCKY BAZTARD!!!!
Wanted to go to their upcoming show in Tilburg, but already sold out.

How was it?
I understand the reviews on Heritage are 'mixed', but I myself consider it an awesome work of genuine, classic progrock.

A true classic, whether you appreciate doom/prog metal or not (I do )



The lovely Mrs. Anneke van Giersbergen and her Gathering.
She's a singing teacher at the Amsterdam conservatory nowadays, but whenever any a proper band calls her to make a contribution... she's there.

Oh damn, that's 15 - oops, 20! - years ago -which reminds me that Time Flies. indeed.

Porcupine Tree's Time Flies -

Hi there...I had passes too actually

I actually like Heritage a lot more than most of their stuff and like the direction they have taken. I like their prog/classic side much more and they did a tribute song to classic Rainbow, an old favorite of mine so thumbs up from me

Henderson and Berlin were simply fantastic!

Next up here:

Pat Metheny, Dream Theater, Steve Wilson, John Scofield and a few others I may check out include Hiromi and Queensryche if the mood hits

How about you?

Cheers!

Re: Bonnie the Cat's, formerly know as Stupid Dream - PROG ROCK thread!

A very much underrated 1980's British semi-prog rock band, with a fantastic singer - Ph.D.
Unfortunately singer Jim Diamond chose to follow the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$-route soon thereafter... with the expected results.



US AOR-band Tesla scored a BIG hit with this song a couple of years later.

But eh, credits to those who deserve 'ehm, no?

That same band was responsible for this:



Whatever happened to singer Jim Diamond thereafer, I dunno. Selling one's soul to the god of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ (un)fortunately doesn't always pays off in the long run....

Considering that this was in the 1980's, pretty good proggie attempt.

Another great entry into the Opeth catalog.

Mikael Åkerfeldt (0:48-2:30) discusses the recording process of this new "earthy" album in comparison to that of most other modern-metal/rock efforts.

At least GENUINE progrock, no cookie monster vocals anymore. (not that I minded those all to much eh )

GOD! I need to practice this song for the weekend.
The band wants to rehearse it.
I used to love it, but now...

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.
(Actually 2nd)
