Prog Issue 97

Since its arrival at the tail end of the 60s progressive rock has offered the world some of the most fascinating music ever heard, in varying guises over the years. Prog magazine brings you the stories behind the people who create these astounding sounds and amazing music, be they the classic originators such as Genesis, Pink Floyd and Yes, to the 80s revivalists such as Marillion and IQ, all the way through to those musicians today who have done so much to help rejuvenate the genre such as Muse, Radiohead, Steven Wilson, Opeth and Anathema. In depth and behind the scenes stories of classic albums and tours sit side by side with widespread coverage of what‘s happening at today’s cutting edge of progressive music.

ed’s letter

I can’t let this moment pass without commenting on the sad loss of Talk Talk mainman Mark Hollis. We featured Talk Talk, primarily their Spirit Of Eden album, in the very first issue of Prog. It’s hard to think of a band that came at progressive music from the left field that have had such an impact on generations of music listeners and makers as that Essex trio. The only other one that springs to mind is Radiohead, specifically OK Computer. True, both bands aren’t to every prog fan’s liking, but surely even the hardiest naysayer couldn’t deny the influence of Mark Hollis’ musical ideas, that have continued long after he decided to call time on the band in 1991. Chris Roberts pays tribute to Hollis on page 34. As I…

bloody well write

PROG AIN’T NOISE POLLUTION After reading Prog 95 avidly and with the pleasure that I have done for many years, [I had to write] concerning the new Dream Theater album (Distance Over Time). As an intermittent fan of Dream Theater (mostly the prog songs), what I found, listening to the album, was… noise pollution! The only prog song is Out Of Reach. I am not too old to accept evolution in prog, but I can’t deal with this type of ‘prog music’. I learn lots about prog in ‘our’ magazine. Prog On… but don’t call a pig a cow. Paulo Vasconcelos, Lisbon, Portugal FROM AMERICA, WITH LOVE Here in the USA we are a little behind in receiving Prog magazine, but better late than never! For issue 94, all I can say is wow! My…

MARJANA SEMKINA @marjanasemkina I’m going back to the UK tomorrow to record vocals for our album 4. Most of my tiny suitcase is filled with notebooks and books and recording equipment and I’m going for over a month… AMY BIRKS @Amy_l_Birks In the writing zone! Think I’ve just finished something quite special #newsongs DEVIN TOWNSEND @dvntownsend Got to check out the album again. It works. The idea was to make a multicoloured world to get lost in for awhile and feel purged when finished. I think the next thing I do is going to be super chill… CRAIG BLUNDELL @craigblundell In the studio today rehearsing on this gorgeous 24” @MapexDrums Saturn V Tour set up for tomorrow’s @MapexDrumsUSA masterclass at @Auvisa in Barcelona. It’s been a long time since I’ve done a clinic thing due to touring, very much looking forward…

big big train’s grand musical adventure

Big Big Train are departing for a Grand Tour via English Electric on May 17. The new studio album from the Prog Award winners pulls away from the British folklore of their former releases and takes inspiration from other lands. Their new adventures draw parallels to their expanded reach and touring schedule. “For the last 10 years, our music has been focused on Britain, the British landscape and the people so we wanted this new album to look further afield for inspiration,” reveals founding bassist and songwriter Greg Spawton. “The album is inspired by the 17th and 18th century custom of the grand tour where young men and women travelled outside the UK to broaden the mind and find out more about art, culture, history and ideas. As a band, we…

tesseract singer makes solo debut

“I think people will be very surprised,” TesseracT vocalist Daniel Tompkins reveals to Prog ahead of the release of his solo debut Castles, out via Kscope on May 31. “It’s very dark and very electronic. There are some big rock ballads, crushing symbols, distorted guitars, programmed beats, pulsating synths… The closest artists I can compare it to would be Nine Inch Nails or maybe Massive Attack. I’ve also been inspired by Björk, David Bowie, Enigma, and A Perfect Circle.” Tompkins began work on the project four years ago with US producer Eddie Head. He was looking for a dark electronic outlet that he had full creative control of. Musically, he’s brought in previous collaborators including Zeta’s Paul Ortiz, White Moth Black Butterfly producer Randy Slaugh and his TesseracT bandmate Acle Kahney,…
