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

And, a genuine to Seingeist -

The "Church of your Heart" - by lovely Swedish progrock band The Flower Kings



"... We do believe in wonder, we do believe it's right!
Stars will be our blankets, the moon supply the light -
Gracefully I watch them coming down like waterfalls,
All ancient souls, universal wisdom, come true! Open doors....

Believe, in the church of your heart
And every step you'll take is magic
You'll stand up to the heat
True, be true to your heart
And thru the looking glass of wonder
The universe, now at your feet....

Belief, will go all the way, build us a home, a heart out of clay
True, the sharp interplay, and no man shall dare, to stand in our way
It's true, the church of your heart....

Time may catch me in the middle of my great grand mission
Time may not be right, but still I hammer on, nail my higher vision
No moment in stagnation,
Still ain't no science fiction, slave to my one conviction
Watch for this elevation, flowers and celebration
Work my way to your heart, is it really true, tell me....
Tell me that it's.......true, the church of your heart"



"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...!"


"The Storm Before The Calm"

I've just joined the gym, and I'm struggling to find music to run/work out to. However, I've not yet tried any prog...so I might put some Porcupine Tree on and see how it goes

Have you got a last.fm account, btw?

Early PT is a good choice, but when it comes to working out in the gym, I'd personally advise -







HAWKWIND!!!

and stuff like that.
Space Rock!!!

Nope, perhaps I should get it.
I'm not too keen on getting 'registrated' everywhere-and-anywhere, you know, that's the same reason why I don't have a FB-account either.

Old-fashioned, I know.

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

Another classic, this time of the 'lovely' category - german progrockers Grobschnitt

Anywhere, my friends... here's for genuine romantic, classic fairytale progrock



Went all the way to Dortmund last year to see them perform the fantastic Rockpommel's Land LIVE last year.
I'll never forget that experience, they were magnificent.

Oh, nostalgia, indeed...

Grobschnitt is a genuine German ProgRock LEGEND from the 1970-1980's.

Very much *mocked* back in those days, as they were an obviously very heavily Yes/Genesis-inspired combo (in contrary to what's very often stated, they were/are NOT "Krautrock" like bands as Amon Duül, Eloy, Guru Guru, and the like - nope, just pure classical, symphonic progrock) - and also mocked because of singer Mr. Willy Wildschwein's massive German accent. Pretty lame imho.
The design of Rockpommel's Land's 1970's album sleeve was as much a rip-off of Roger Dean's works as it was a tribute.

There was a good reason for me to travel all the way to Dortmund last year to finally be able to witness a complete live version of the lovely Rockpommel's Land - review over here - .
So funny to see that quite a few of these 'old' guys still being active on stage - and dear old Mr. Wildschwein's voice (in his 60's now!) is still to-die-for - and their sons having joined in with this 'gathering' as well. True hippie spirit.
Love these guys forever and cannot wait to see them again.

Well here's an example of yet another one of their classics:



GROBSCHNITT's Solar Music, live, 1978.

"GROBSCHNITT

war, ist, und bleibt eine einzigartige und ganz besondere Band in der deutschen Musikszene, die sich jeder Vorstellung entzieht und in kein Klischee pressen lässt."


Word. Friggin' fantastic. LEGENDS of the GAME!
Sheez, performing live in Hagen with an orchestra, June 2012. Gonna get me the tickets, yesssss!

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

^^ Thanks for your contribution, 2003.
Yes, Alan Parsons Project surely belongs to be included in ProgRock, but imho, they've always been just a bit too 'easy', too 'mainstream' to be included with the genuine greats of the genre. I miss the quirckiness, awkwardness of those.
A bit of a "second tier" compared to their contemporaries, to be honest. That said, their early albums Tales of Mistery and Imagination, as well as I Robot are certainly worth a listening - or even two.



That said, Chris Rainbow's lovely mellow vocals on this^^ particular song make it into some kind of a 'guilty pleasure' to me. Might well have to do with me being a hard-core Bridge player, and indeed,
"... But the Game never ends, when your whole world depends - on the Turn of A Friendly Card..."

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

A genuine classic -

Yes - Yours is no disgrace -LIVE, from the Rainbow Theatre, London, UK, 1972 oh man oh man oh man...



Oh man, what a beauty!

"If the summer turns to winter, yours is no disgrace!"

Among all of these GIANTS of musicians... my heart goes out to the Master of Bass, namely Mr. Chris Squire. Oh jeebus. he's so good.
