The Progressive Tracks Show #330 (It’s A Tough Business, This Prog)

NOTE: WORLD PREMIERE SONG on this week’s show!

Progressive Rock artists face a myriad of obstacles in creating the music we listeners love and enjoy. This week we’ll hear some of this absolutely stellar music… while I point out some things that make it seem like I understand their struggles (even though I can’t play a note). Oh well, at least the music will be stellar, including that world premiere from one of Zeuhl’s greatest artists!

And remember, you can access podcasts of any previous Progressive Tracks Show at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks (there are over 165 podcasts now!).

Tatsuya Yoshida and Zeuhl masters, Koenjihyakkei, will soon present an updated version of their classic “Angherr Shisspa” album, complete with live tracks from a 2005 concert in Japan.  “Angherr Shisspa Revisited” is scheduled for release later this month.

 

Progzilla Radio has the honor of premiering one of these live tracks, “Rattims Friezz”, to the world on our web page and on this week’s edition of The Progressive Tracks Show (#330), hosted by Mike “ProgTracks” Pollack.

Rattims Friezz” was performed at The Doors club in Hatsudai, Japan on 7 August 2005, and emphatically proves the ability of the band to play their exacting music in a live setting.

Track Artists:

– Yamamoto Kyoko / vocals
– Kanazawa Miyako / keyboards, vocals
– Komori Keiko / reeds, vocals
– Sakamoto Kengo / bass, vocals
– Tatsuya Yoshida / drums, vocals

Angherr Shisspa Revisited” is due for release (on digital download, coloured vinyl LP, and CD media) on SKiN GRAFT RECORDS on 20 September 2019:

Progressive Tracks Show #265 (Discoveries), originally broadcast on Saturday, June 9, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

The premise for this show is simple:  Sometimes it takes a bit of looking, but the progressive rock machine continues to churn… and you’ll need no additional proof of that other than to listen to the music in this show.   It’s been quite a while since we’ve done an edition of The Progressive Tracks Show about anything but the SeaProg Festival (not that anyone’s complaining, mind you), but it’s time to get back to music discoveries from the past couple of months.

Here’s the plan:  Take some time to relax, put on some headphones, and immerse yourself in some quality progressive rock.  It may well be the best part of your day.

The after-party:  Remember, you can access any previous edition of The Progressive Tracks Show at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks.
