Joining me in The Attic for this episode is Lee Spreadbury of GU-RU, a lovely lad and mahoosively talented to boot. We talk bobbins, of course, and find time to play a couple of tracks from the new GU-RU EP ‘Zenith’s Privilege’, as well as a tune from the debut album ‘Tales From The Ashram’.
It’s safe to say we love GU-RU here at from The Attic, so check ’em ‘aht, won’t you?

Spring hit the northern hemisphere last weekend so on this edition of Prog-Watch I’m celebrating the sun! I’ve got a slew of spectacular solar songs from the likes of The Beatles, Asia, Overhead, Panic Room, Genesis, The Anderson-Ponty Band, Utopia, Jethro Tull, ELO, Schicke Fuehrs & Froeling, The Kinks, Badfinger, Traffic, Anekdoten, Ranaissance, In Continuum, and The Strawbs!
Review by Grumpyprogfan — I used to like LTE more than I do now. Tastes change, and playing notes ultra fast doesn't impress me anymore. Anyway, this new release sounds the same as the others. Instrumental motions to show off the musical talents of the band. "Liquid Evolution", the shortest and most musically different song, […]
Review by UMUR — "Dead Air" is a live album/DVD release by Swedish metal act Katatonia. The album was released through Peaceville Records in November 2020. It´s a double live album release featuring a third DVD disc with a visual presentation of the performance. The album is a "live in the studio recording", recorded on […]
Review by Rivertree — They can be sure, this album won't be without notice. Founded in 2019 BEND THE FUTURE is a relatively new band from Grenoble, France. That five-piece combo is delivering sophisticated music, featuring vocals and a strong jazzy orientation. I would say especially piano (Samy Chëbre) and saxophone (Pierre-Jean Ménabé) are making […]
Review by alainPP — MOTORPSYCHO, this Norwegian group almost older than their age, atypical hard rock group playing for more than 30 years on the progressive atmospheres of dinosaurs; MOTORPSYCHO or how to regress and release an album oozing with dignity the BLACK SABBATH, LED ZEPPELIN and other MONSTER MAGNET. Album recorded in France before […]
Review by PeterB — Lifesigns first self titled album saw them in full on prog mode with Nick Beggs onboard then the follow up Cardington showed their more AOR tenancies with Jon Poole replacing Beggs along with another assortment of guitarists. Now this third studio outing has the current line up of John Young, Jon […]
Review by javajeff — Another straight up Motorpsycho release with their signature sound continuing from what The All Is One started. Some tracks act as interludes like After the Fair, but it sets up their longest track on Kingdom of Oblivion which is The Transmutation of Cosmoctopus Lurker. It is slightly over ten minutes and […]
Review by Warthur — This boxed-set presentation of Jethro Tull's contentious A album not only includes Steven Wilson giving the album (and associated studio tracks) a new mix to tease out the hidden virtues often overlooked in previous appreciations of it, and not only includes the "Slipstream" film (mixing and matching live footage with music […]
Review by Steve Conrad — An Affectionate ReviewJoys and Perils of Live PerformanceHere's the first live release by (mostly) French nonet NINE SKIES, of a recording of their performance in 2019 at progressive rock festival, PROG EN BEAUCE. Held in a small-town venue in Pierres, France, this annual festival also featured MYSTERY, ALBION, and CLEPSYDRA, […]
Review by Accursio — Faccio parte di un gruppo di ascolto formato da 4 amici. Nei nostri incontri bimestrali ci scambiamo novità discografiche, e soprattutto opinioni. Siamo costantemente alla ricerca di particolari uscite e di nuove proposte musicali navigando tra riviste e web. Ed è proprio tra queste ricerche che mi sono ritrovato tra le […]
Review by Rivertree — This band is hailing from Greece, known for delivering a sophisticated blend of folk, psychedelia and art rock since some time. Their albums all were released with a lapse of five years approximately. That means space enough to accurately prepare the ground in every case. 'Harvest' appears as their third one, […]
