Phil Jee (Barkeeper) – HOP Promotions and Street Team

  I grew up in the London Suburbs, UK, in the late 60’s at the end of the Hippy Era. I always wanted to be different with my musical tastes and went head first into heavy rock and Prog. Now, 50 years later, my tastes are still the same. Still love playing vinyl,...

Esther Tiger Kessel-Tamerus

The first prog band that blew me away was Focus. I was a toddler and never heard of the word prog. I still was a little girl when Pink Floyd's Money drew my attention. When I was about 12 years old I bought a pile of second hand prog cassette tapes. And realized this...

Who am I? I have always been a seeker. Always been one who was never satisfied with the 'status quo'. I was always looking for music that sounded a little different, or music that was well crafted in comparison to what is heard on mainstream radio. As a long time...

My love for vinyl records started when I was 7 and the Beatles came to the USA, and my mom bought me my first Beatle LP. I never stopped collecting vinyl from that point on. Influenced by three generations of musicians, I was a drummer for almost 40 years. I fell in...

  • IQ
    by Leo Trimming on September 14, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    Islington Assembly Hall, London Saturday 7th September Resistance Album Launch Event The launch of a new IQ studio album is a special event – they only happen about every 4 or 5 years, so it’s understandable that there was a definite air of anticipation and expectation in a packed Islington Assembly Hall. What would the [&am

  • Justin Hayward
    by Geoff Ford on September 13, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    Symphony Hall, Birmingham Tuesday 10th September 2019 When Justin Hayward plays Birmingham it inevitably feels like a home-coming. Even though he was born in Swindon (“that place that everyone passes on the M4”, he laughs), Birmingham is the home town of prog rock pioneers The Moody Blues, of which Justin Hayward was such a vital [&am

  • Tool – Fear Inoculum
    by Roger Trenwith on September 12, 2019 at 5:30 pm

    Ah, the joys of writing about a band with no preconceptions. You may think it strange, but until I listened to this album I don’t think I’ve knowingly heard anything by Tool. This band are evidently HUGE on the prog metal scene, especially so in their home territory over The Pond in the U. S. [&am

  • King Of Agogik – After The Last Stroke
    by Leo Trimming on September 11, 2019 at 5:43 pm

    After the Last Stroke is the seventh album by German multi-instrumentalist Hans Jörg Schmitz, who releases solo albums under the curious soubriquet ‘King of Agogik’. This name came from a humourous exchange experienced by Schmitz when he was playing with a covers band (the graphically named ‘The Assholes’!) when the guitar player stopped playing in [&am

  • Red Kite – Red Kite
    by Roger Trenwith on September 10, 2019 at 5:51 pm

    This Red Kite, from Norway, are not be confused with an alt-rock band of the same name from London, as an internet search can get a tad confusing! Deliciously scuzzy, like a good vibe in an otherwise sleazy nightclub, Red Kite enter our audio world with some pleasant meandering for a minute or two before [&am

    Moody Blues’ legend Justin Hayward is back on the road, in September, for an 8-date UK tour All The Way, a celebration of his 50-plus years as one of most-influential musicians of our time. “I’m always so thrilled to have the opportunity to tour in the UK,” Justin said, “particularly at this time in in [&am

    by Rob on September 9, 2019 at 6:36 pm

    To start things off, we have the long awaited fourth album by Noekk, “Waltzing In Obscurity.” I reviewed their EP “Carol Stones and Elder Rock” from last year which was an all acoustic affair. I had wondered if that was … Continue reading &rarr

  • Magic Pie – Fragments Of The 5th Element
    by Leo Trimming on September 8, 2019 at 5:58 pm

    Norwegian progressive rockers, Magic Pie, return with their fifth album, appropriately called Fragments of the 5th Element. As those familiar with Luc Besson’s fine 1997 cult (and rather bizarre) Sci-Fi film ‘The Fifth Element’ will know the ‘Fifth Element’ turned out to be ‘Love’. It appears that ‘Love’ in many forms, both positive and negative, [&am

    The Wharf, Tavistock Saturday, 31st August 2019 Two very good bands, one night, at Tavistock’s wonderful The Wharf. Great venue, frequently punching above it’s weight with attractions, and a few good places to eat near by. First up for this double header was Zio; the brain child of Jimmy Pellagrosi (Ex Karnataka) and a set [&am
