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!

Ahh… the things we think.  The weird ways our minds work.

Time for some tunes about the mind.  Whose mind?  Somebody’s mind.  Maybe it’s yours?  Maybe it’s mine?

The days are getting shorter, and darkness is the best environment to put on some headphones and immerse yourself in some quality, heady, progressive rock.

Remember, you can stream/download this, and any of the 117 previous editions of The Progressive Tracks Show broadcast on Progzilla Radio, any time you want at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks.

Progressive Tracks Show #264 (SeaProg Festival Wrap-Up #6), originally broadcast on Saturday, June 2, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

There are two kinds of people in this world:  Those who attended SeaProg 2018 this past weekend… and those who did not.  But both groups will find something to like about this show which features 14 SeaProg artists.

If you attended, you’ll be able to relive some of the fonder memories you’ve ever had while depriving yourself of sleep at a music event (the artists were truly that great, weren’t they?).

Progressive Tracks Show #259 (SeaProg Festival Preview #2), originally broadcast on Saturday, April 28, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

How does that famous poem go?  Oh yeah… the best laid schemes o’ proggers an’ men.

My plan to feature 3 SeaProg performers each week hit a snag when I paired 2 bands that have ‘a history’ with each other… and things got a little crazy.

I’m not saying that like it’s a bad thing…

Like a pleasant memory… or gum on your shoe… this is a show that will surely stick with you.  I’ll let you decide which applies. but either way, it will stick with you.

;o)
