Today's progfest is this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZnSXOdBI3k by German band My Solid Ground, which progarchives.com tells me is:

... a 13-minute epic of dark, heavy space rock with crunching guitars and acid riffs, distorted vocals, lots of long droning keyboards - imagine a mix of early FLOYD ("One of These Days") and THIRSTY MOON.

They're not wrong!  Cheesy

Maggot Brain by Funkadelic.  Really great guitar workout. Not sure if it's representative of Funkadelic (I expect not), but it's made me want to explore a bit more.

It's not in their usual style, although they did do a few other slow-burning mainly-instrumental tracks.  But Maggot Brain is the standout track of that kind of music.  Try listening to the whole album and you'll get a flavour of what else they did.  They were pretty diverse.

Various Soft Machine CDs. I seem to have  quite a few. There's lots of live stuff to choose from, of varying sound quality. I particularly like the  BBC concert recording. (Windsong CD, 1994).

"Black Dub" by, er, Black Dub (Daniel Lanois and friends do their funky/souley/dubby thang, rather entertainingly).

Followed by the Crims' 2021 Tour Box 2CD set - the by now usual mix of live/(largely) unreleased tracks and a couple of teasers from forthcoming releases (Frippertronics "Exposure" boxed set anyone? I'm in!)

I love some of the really early lpre 4 era) live stuff that has started to appear on cd since the technology to remaster them has become  good enough to rescue really poor recordings to a standard acceptable to the human ear.middle Earth Masters and some of the other Cuneiform Records releases  from the late 60s early 70s are interseting

 Under Bridgwit's influence, I'm exploring the more obscure areas of seventies music....

 I'd never heard of this lot before - could be described as prog-funk-psych rock  Shocked

Common Ground - the new album by Big Big Train. This is only my second Big Big Train album. Oh dear. Within the first two minutes there are clunky references to lockdown and social distancing which will date the album by next week and which are things nobody will want to hear about once we get out of this mess. Certainly not for pleasure.

Having another eclectic sort of day.

Mott the Hoople 'The Island Years'
Rosie Thomas 'When We Were Small'
Rick Wakeman 'Piano Odyssey'
and I'm just about to listen to Steeleye Span 'Dodgy Bastards'



Love that era Mott the Hoople.

Is it not possible to write lyrics about current events, then?  I've been in an enthusiastic crowd singing along with Stand Down Margaret long after she was in her grave...  

Maybe this is just clunky?  I tried a few albums after Jude's collaboration...and none of the hundreds of lengthy Prog articles extolling their virtues really enthuses me to try more.  Dave Gregory not being in them any more is a big negative too...

Here, I've been having an unintentionally Scots day...lots of Jackie Leven and Alasdair Roberts.

Certainly it is. But not all of them will endure. I am with you on Stand Down Margaret but that is surely in part down to the circumstances when I first heard it and its unstoppable groove. The words "lockdown" and "social distancing" are going to have a limited shelf life and I am sure we will not want to revisit them with any sense of nostalgia. But yes, it may just be clunky, plain and simple. The rest of the album is a vast improvement over the opening track. I'm not sure that prog was ever designed to strive for relevance.  Grin

Kevin Ayers Harvest albums.


The 2003 CD remasters, which sound pretty good.

I've been reading about coastal erosion on the California coastline on the weekend and watching documentaries on YouTube (well, I found it interesting... Undecided) , so I'm taking a trip back to the West Coast of the 60's  Afro

Jefferson Airplane, namely Surrealistic Pillow, their first with Grace Slick.
Then onto the Byrds (Turn! Turn! Turn!), The Mamas & The Papas (eponymous) and probably finish off with some Moby Grape (Wow)

Just off to put on a cheesecloth blouse and love beads....  Grin
