    Heh. They still got Dibs on Bass? Used to see him in the pub all the time.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    Flipping Dave Brock has chucked his toys out of his pram & won't come out & play because Nik Turner's in the film. FFS.

    God they're a great band though.

    Yeah, that sounds about right. The band aren't bad, though some of the fans can be animals.

    Serious question, what is "progressive rock"?

    I've been listening to lots of maudlin of the Well recently, which is pretty much what I think of when I think of "progressive rock". But I understand more purists wouldn't consider them "progressive rock"?

    I say "fook the purists", there's only good music and bad music :)

    Those Maudlin of the Well guys sound good, i'd say it's kinda proggy, and i consider myself a big fan of what's normally termed prog.

    Its such a diverse term nowadays. I'd say, if it can get a discography listing on Progarchives, then its generally got at least some progressive elements to it.

    Did anyone else go to High Voltage at the weekend?

    prog rock to me just takes me back to when my step-father and his friends would listen to weird music (genesis, yes, elp, frank zappa) and smoke a lot of cannabis. all the while i'd be watching italian football and breathing in second-hand smoke.

    i listen to those bands now myself. i hated it at the time because it wasn't pop, now as an adult i realise most pop isn't worthy of my time and i love listening to a bit of prog-rock. although my exposure to it is fairly limited.

    Got a USB turntable at xmas to archive my vinyl. Last few days have been prog city. Mostly Rush and Fish-era Marillion.

    I had completely forgotten how much I loved Marillion.

    Not sure I cared for Kings X enough to rip their first two lps. I used to like them, but am not digging it so much these days.

    I only mentioned them as they have been talked about a fair bit in this thread already. Including by yourself, but fair enough.

    Sorry. I didn't mean it in a know all way. I was just curious. I guess they have leanings. I wouldn't classify Rush as prog either for that matter. But I can see why it might apply. To me Prog is like free form Jazz in Rock form. So traditional song structure tends to go out the window. Who knows! :D

    Looking back. To be honest I think I was probably trying to get on the Kings X subject to brag about touring with them. I think I have pwned myself.

    They are/were on predominantly prog label for what it is worth.

    Listening to Operation Mindcrime at the moment, does that count as prog?

    I used to have that, but lent it out at school and never got it back. I still kind of miss it.

    I reckon it would count as prog. It's definitely a concept album if nothing else!

    That was my view, concept albums tend to be the realms of Prog. The reason I queried was because it is highly rated heavy metal album as well, was rated something like 12th best Heavy Metal album, to be fair they do include AC/DC which I wouldn't call metal.

    In more traditional prog realms I have had Topograhpic Oceans by Yes for over a year and still not put it in the CD player, will have to soon I think.

    I enjoyed that. The only tracks I remember of Focus were Sylvia and Hocus Pocus, with the rest being twiddly hippy crap. 38:30 onwards in that vid are great. Best yodelling in a song evah.
