NEXT ISSUE ON FEB 4 SALE Hello and welcome to issue 105 of Prog Magazine. I know this reaches you between Xmas and the New Year, but the last issue was out in November and it just seemed too early to share our Xmas card with you. Here it is for your enjoyment now. Thanks once again to John Langton for his wonderful work Last issue we bade farewell to Deputy Editor Hannah. This issue I am delighted to introduce you to her replacement, Natasha Scharf. Natasha’s been with Prog since our inception back in 2009 and has been our News Editor for the past five years. She beat off very strong competition to land the job and I’m really looking forward to taking the magazine forward into a new decade with…

bloody well write

SCRIPT FOR A TEAR OF JOY Just read your excellent Marillion feature in Prog 104, and it certainly brings back memories. I was at the Marquee when they supported Spider (Sunday, January 3 1982), and their first headline gig on January 25. But they also played a gig at The Starlight Rooms, West Hampstead on January 27, with Pallas as support. That was where I got the demo cassette, and also this poster, which I’ve always loved. I saw them 20 times in ’82 – would have been 21, but for an Asia show at Wembley Arena. By a quirk of fate, I am also now married to a Margaret! Prog on! Ian Hobbs INFREQUENCY Generally a good mag to get one’s teeth into as it were. Been with you since the early days, so keep it up. I…

saucerful of secrets announce 2020 tour

Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets are hitting the road again in April and May for what will be their biggest tour of the British Isles yet. Along with 14 dates across England, they’ll be taking in Scotland, Ireland and Wales as well, before heading out to mainland Europe. Almost 20 years ago to the day, Prog’s Editor Jerry Ewing – then a contributing editor at Classic Rock – talked to Nick Mason about Pink Floyd in an interview to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Wall. He said, “This is the second time a major member has left and you’ve gone on to even greater things.” Mason replied, laughing, “Oh, as soon as I get rid of Dave [Gilmour], such great plans.” Few could have predicted that two decades later that…

toundra open dr caligari’s cabinet

Toundra mark the centenary of early gothic horror movie Das Cabinet Des Dr Caligari by releasing their soundtrack album of the same name on February 28 via InsideOut. Acclaimed for being a psychological and political drama, the 1920 silent film explores what happens when good people begin accepting instructions from a psychopathic leader. The Spanish instrumentalists first set their music against the screenplay last year. “For all our 12 years we’ve wanted to do a soundtrack,” guitarist and pianist Esteban Girón tells Prog. “We had the opportunity of doing it live in a big cinema in Madrid, our home city. “We wanted to take the opportunity to record it and spread the message. It’s not just music, it’s not just an album from Toundra. It’s something different – an important message of the…

hackett returns for seconds out live shows

Steve Hackett’s Genesis Revisited project reaches an end of sorts when he recreates 1977’s double live album Seconds Out next winter. He left after the original tour, but, still in love with the music, will revive the full LP with additional material when he tours the UK in November and December 2020. “It’s a very personal thing,” Hackett tells Prog of Genesis Revisited, which he started in 1996. It’s informed his solo work too, as he argues: “Artists continually have to keep giving themselves pep talks, no matter whether you’ve done incredibly well or you’ve struggled away for years and years. I might change the delivery, but I’m keeping the intention of the music.” The tour hits many venues Genesis played in ’76, which Hackett says is a fluke of scheduling. “But the…

colin edwin: new solo album

O.R.k’s Colin Edwin releases a song-based solo album, Infinite Regress, on Hard World on January 24. The collaboration with his long-time friend, vocalist and lyricist Robert RJ Peck came about in rather unusual circumstances. “I’d been working on my own on a load of instrumental pieces and one of the problems is that you don’t have anyone to bounce ideas off,” he explains. “So I sent Rob a couple of tracks saying, ‘What do you think of this?’ And the reply I got was that they came back with vocals and guitar on them! It just carried on like that and the lyrical themes that he came up with all fitted what I had imagined really well, even though I hadn’t said anything to him.” One of the most immediately striking things…
