I’m doing another of my band family tree explorations on Prog-Watch this week and my subject is the British band IQ! I’ll be spinning a few brand new tunes from the band’s latest double album, Resistance, and exploring their roots and branches in the music of The Lens, Niadem’s Ghost, Jadis, and Martin Orford!
644: Shaking the Family Tree of IQ
This week on Prog-Watch I’ve got a MOSTLY NEW Variety program! Most of the music will come from 2019 releases (and this has been quite a good year for our favorite genre)! Tune in to hear great stuff from Chasing The Monsoon, Lobate Scarp, IQ, Organic Noises, The Horn Of The Spiral Night, Flying Colors, Proportions, The Kentish Spires, Psychoyogi, The ESP Project, Deadly Circus Fire, and The Flower Kings! All of this crammed into 90 minutes!
