This week on Prog-Watch my special guest is Nick Magnus! Nick is perhaps best known as a long-time collaborator and bandmate of Steve Hackett, but has an interesting history and six solo albums to his name! Nick and I chat about everything from his early days with the Enid and Autumn, through the “Hackett Years”, and up to the present, with the release of his latest solo album Catharsis! Along the way I will of course be spinning lots of great Magnus music!
717: In Conversation with Nick Magnus
This week on Prog-Watch I have a straight up variety program for you, and much of the stuff I will be playing is relatively new! With music from Blind Ego, Karfagen, Hats Off Gentlemen It’s Adequate, Dreaming Madmen, Great Pacific Orchestra, Jeff Lynne’s ELO, Nick Magnus, Ritual, and Sonus Umbra!
This week’s Prog-Watch features a lot of great, modern Prog Rock from Jan Akkerman, Karfagen, Low Roar, Rodney Matthews and Jeff Scheetz with Oliver Wakeman, Nick Magnus, and Frequent Flyers, and a “proggy”classic from Elton John! Plus, The Doctor, Rob Fisher, will be examining the debut album by the UK group Chasing the Monsoon!
