This week’s Prog-Watch is all about ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggedy beasties and THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT! With songs concerning things supernatural from White Willow, The Strawbs, Blue Oyster Cult, Asia, Uriah Heep, Pattern-Seeking Animals, Agents Of Mercy, Ken Hensley, The Syn, Styx, Jethro Tull, Rush, The Rocket Scientists, Drifting Sun, Todd Rundgren, Warren Zevon, and Anekdoten! Join me…if you dare!
That ‘other’ entity at which I present over in the United Kingdom is celebrating 5 years on the Internet. So all the Progzilla Radio DJ’s have created shows featuring the songs that hooked them on progressive rock, as well as some favorites from the past 5 years. Even though I broke the rules… just a bit, this is mine.
Why celebrate Progzilla Radio’s 5th Birthday on KPTZ?
You might also ask: Why is a raven like a writing desk? I haven’t the slightest idea!
This week’s Prog-Watch is an entire show dedicated to prog rock classic tracks! I’m spinning tunes by Genesis, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, King Crimson, Kansas, The Alan Parson Project, Yes, Jethro Tull, The Electric Light Orchestra, Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, and Caravan! Our friend and resident reviewer, Dr. Rob Fisher, is also doing a Progressive Discoveries segment on a classic album… Breathless by Camel! Come along as Prog-Watch goes “old school”!
This week on Prog-Watch it’s another of my themed specials, and the theme is family! Every song has to do with family and especially close family members (Mother, Father, Sister and Brother)! Music will be supplied by great classic and contemporary artists, including Jethro Tull, Genesis, Yes, Pendragon, Alan Parsons, Renaissance, Seven Steps To The Green Door, Queen, IO Earth, Traffic, The Nice, The Who, Dukes Of The Orient, and Peter Gabriel! Come along for a fun ride!
On this week’s Prog-Watch my very special guest is the one and only Martin Barre of Jethro Tull fame! Martin and I talk Tull and his solo career, and along the way there is plenty of great music…a few Tull tunes on which Martin really shines, and lots of great music from his solo albums, including a few from his fabulous new album “Roads Less Travelled”!
Review by alainPP — JPL is releasing its 10th album, the second on the Sapiens trilogy. JPL is Jean-Pierre, singer and composer of WOLFSPRING and above all of the giant NEMO, with an appointed sweetness for both the group and the composer. A second part with influences from large progressive groups in the background. The […]
Review by The Rain Man — Mogwai are a 4-piece post rock band from Glasgow, Scotland and "As the Love Continues" is their 10th studio album. I have always been a passive fan of Mogwai. I must admit the only previous records I ever got really into were "Rock Action" and "Mr Beast". I did […]
Review by DamoXt7942 — Intensive stoner sightseeing tours they launch. A Québécois combo GASPARD are a young and promising psychedelic / post rock project. This album "Vertiges" released as their second album has opened the curtain of 2021 for their decent psychedelia / postedelia tinged with heavy, metallic essence.The first shot "Le langage des montagnes" […]
Review by kev rowland — Multi-instrumentalist Arne Schäfer is back with his tenth album under the Apogee name and has been joined again by drummer Eberhard Graef. It is safe to say that I have not been the greatest fan of his releases to date, which go back some 25 years, but did think his […]
Review by TCat — It's good that they have found something to do with the on and off again "Yes" clone band members before they decided to release another album under that name and ruin it even more. John Davidson is here on vocals, the same one that they thought they could use as a […]
Review by Progfan97402 — Tusmørke followed their children's album Bydyra with Fersyn i Farver which was back to the more mature music style and subject matter. They recorded a second children's album with Leker for Barn, Ritualer for Volksne and you can't think of a more 180 turn than to their followup Nordisk Krim. It's […]
Review by GarfunkelSi — "Stellar Gardener" is the second solo album of Ukrainian progressive master Antony Kalugin, while the first one has been released only 4 months ago. Taking into account that Antony is the main and almost the only songwriter for his projects "Sunchild" and "Karfagen" we know well what his style of songwriting […]
Review by alainPP — Would the Gods no longer be able to (re) descend to earth?It does not matter, the machine is there to give them a helping hand, to grant their wishes. "Deus ex Machina (2): A play to govern us all" intro that puts you in the mood from the start, the voice […]
Review by javajeff — Anyone that wants to fall in love with music should seriously listen to Motorpsycho. This band has a huge catalog that constantly crosses genres, and literally anything goes. I have most of their studio albums, except for the latest three. I am starting with The Alll is One that delivers powerful […]
Review by javajeff — Simone Simons sounds phenomenal on Omega like every other Epica album. Her vocals is a major draw, but Omega is the biggest release to date incorporating huge orchestral moments, amazing musicianship, fantastic songwriting, and a top notch production. It is a heavy album with the signature growl vocals balancing Simone's angelic […]
