‘Flowers At The Scene’ is available as CD, LP + CD & as a digital album. Order now here: https://timbowness.lnk.to/FlowersAtTheScene

Prog Magazine have said of the album it is “literate, heart-aching art rock at its finest”, while Louder Than War comment that the record “sees him delivering a set that drips with the tasteful quality you’d expect given his fastidious care and meticulous work ethic.”

Tim comments of the new album: “’Lost In The Ghost Light felt like a conclusion to a particular way of writing and working. In the wake of that, Flowers At The Scene very much feels like a new beginning.

It was an exciting project to put together and it was great working closely with long-term creative partners, Brian Hulse and Steven Wilson plus a talented cast of new collaborators. Steven was initially brought in to mix the album, but very quickly was helping develop production ideas alongside Brian and I. Listening to pieces such as Not Married Anymore, Borderline and The War On Me, we both felt that the project had more than a hint of the spirit of no-man and it became obvious that this was a no-man co-production rather than a Bowness/Wilson one.

Elsewhere, the likes of Jim Matheos, Colin Edwin, Dylan Howe and Tom Atherton delivered some incredible performances and it was a delight to get Peter Hammill, Kevin Godley, Andy Partridge and David Longdon involved.

Peter and Kevin were two of my favourite singers growing up and I’ve been a long-term fan of XTC, so it was genuinely a thrill to hear their excellent contributions.”

Representing the duo of Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson’s first joint production in over a decade, the album features performances from an extraordinary cast of players including Peter Hammill (Van Der Graaf Generator), Andy Partridge (XTC), Kevin Godley (10cc), Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree), Jim Matheos (Fates Warning), David Longdon (Big Big Train), co-producer Brian Hulse (Plenty), Australian trumpeter Ian Dixon, and drummers Tom Atherton and Dylan Howe. The Curator, David K Jones, violinist Fran Broady and Charles Grimsdale also guest.

Mixed by Steven Wilson and mastered by The Pineapple Thief’s Steve Kitch, the album’s artwork is by Jarrod Gosling.

The full track-listing is as follows:

1) I Go Deeper (4.15)

2) The Train That Pulled Away (4.04)

3) Rainmark (4.15)

4) Not Married Anymore (3.30)

5) Flowers At The Scene (3.04)

6) It’s The World (3.03)

7) Borderline  (3.45)

8) Ghostlike (5.08)

9) The War On Me (3.47)

10) Killing To Survive (3.59)

11) What Lies Here (4.00)

Tim Bowness is primarily known as vocalist/co-writer with no-man, a long-running collaboration with Steven Wilson.

In addition to releasing six studio albums and a documentary DVD with no-man, Tim has worked with popular Italian artist Alice, Mercury Prize nominated Banco De Gaia, Robert Fripp, Peter Hammill and Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera (amongst many others).

Tim recorded the album Flame (1994) with Richard Barbieri (Porcupine Tree/ex-Japan), and co-produced/co-wrote Talking With Strangers (2009) for Judy Dyble (ex-Fairport Convention).


Tim Bowness released his fourth solo album, ‘Lost In The Ghost Light’ last year through InsideOutMusic, garnering the best solo reviews he has ever received and reaching #5 in the official UK rock chart. It also picked up Best Cover Artwork at the prestigious annual Progressive Music Awards 2017.

The Progmeister Theme (Theme to Miss Marple) Ron Goodwin

Asteroid – Pete Morgan



Thymme Jones and Chicago’s long-time, genre-bending chameleons, Cheer-Accident, have contributed two new songs to the new Skin Graft Records compilation, “Post Now: Round One – Chicago vs. New York”, that is scheduled for release later this month.

Progzilla Radio has the honor of premiering one of these tracks, “Site”, to the world on our web page and on The Progressive Tracks Show hosted by Mike “ProgTracks” Pollack.

Written decades ago but never recorded, “Site” recalls the guitar stylings of Cheer-Accident’s late guitarist, Phil Bonnet, who was responsible for the distinct sounds on classic albums like “Salad Days” and “Trading Balloons”.

Track Artists:

Carmen Armillas – vocals
Jeff Libersher- electric and acoustic guitars
Thymme Jones – backing-vocals, bass synth, drums, keys
Scott Rutledge – words
Todd Rittmann – mastering

Post Now: Round One – Chicago vs. New York”, pits several forward-thinking bands from Chicago and New York in a musical battle for supremacy.  The compilation, featuring rare and exclusive songs, is due for release on Skin Graft Records on 15 March 2019, and is available through Bandcamp in digital download and compact disc formats at this site:


Big thanks go to Mark Fischer at Skin Graft Records, for giving Progzilla Radio the opportunity to bring great new music to the world… and to YOU!
