Re: Bonnie the Cat's, formerly know as Stupid Dream - PROG ROCK thread!
And even MORE Swedes!
Do Send More Swedes!!!
Tiamat, aka Johan Edlund's wonderful "Gaia" from his even more wonderful classic album Wildhoney
And of course... "The Ar"
Heartbreakingly beautiful... heavy, emotional - just like I happen to like my music, ay ayayaya yeah!
Just a snide side-remark: Mr. Johan Edlund is indeed the Davydenko of ProgRock - I once read a review of his albums, claiming that he indeed was a survivor of the Roswell Incident, ...
But just like I love Mr. Davydenko, I love Mr. Edlund just the same.
EDIT: Found a lovely live version of "Gaia" - fantastic!!!
"When Nature Calls, We All Shall Drown..."
OH MAN, that guitar solo!!! Pink Floyd, anyone eh?
Thanks! I like quite a bit of Progressive music, especially the early Krautrock, some of the classics, Phillip Glass, etc. Nice Thread! The Passion is evident.
Pretty interesting stuff indeed, though not all of it is entirely to my personal taste. But I'm actually a late adapter to Kraut, as I only started listening to it some 10 years ago, after I read that Krautrock was of great influence to Steven Wilson's early work.
I surely have to hear more, so continue posting good stuff.
Ah Flamborough Head! Still haven't really gotten into that band, maybe I should
Funny, I used to kind-of dismiss them for years as being in 'good-but-nothing-special'-category. Until I went to their ProgFarm festivals and found myself blown away by their live performances, and not to forget, their latest album "Looking for John Maddock" is a genuine beauty!
Still not something 'awesome', no overdone notes-per-second acrobatics on instruments or anything the like, but very pleasant, melodic neo-prog with fine melodies, a great jazzy singer and last but not least, one of our country's finest guitar players, Mr. Eddie Mulder. His style rather resembles Camel's Andy Latimer's, imho.
Unfortunately Eddie has now left the band, but still performs with FH live once in a while. He's now with Leap Day - yet another Frisian band.
Ah, why not:
Wobbly amateure vid, Jos' lead vocals are even a bit too wobbly at times, but Eddie shines, especially in the solo, starting at around the four-minutes mark.
And an official vid of theirs of a studio-recording:
If you're not into 'too soft' material, just skip the first three minutes, it gets a lot more proggie thereafter.
