Exploits of the Frictionless Man as it wanders around the world like some kind of slippery hydra. Music, words and pictures a speciality.

25/8 you say? I'll count us in then. Wontoofeeforr!

I hear an extended poly-moog pseudo-baroque solo in the air, someone said Prog is on the way back.

Van der Graaf generator have released a new album and the Guardian said Prog was coming back so it must be true. Does that mean it is true? I am cautious to say so, and I think we should observe the sage message in the following proverb: an Emerson and a Lake do not Brain Salad Surgery make.

As has been said in the past any art form that is forward thinking, expansive and innovative should be considered progressive, and whilst the market value of the extended guitar wig out may be rising it is the structural, aesthetic and technical aspects that progressive rock encourages that will be of most benefit and most interest. I look forward to the day when I can stand on stage and tell the audience that the next number is a retrogressive look at the development of the Venetian waltz as heard at the speed of light by aquatic ambassadors from the Mariana Trench, and not feel like I have been scraped from the shoe of a sewer maintenance worker.

If you interested the Mariana Trench is situated 11"21' North latitude and 142" 12' East longitude.

It's a shame that people have to wait for something to become fashionable before they learn from it. I look forward to the day when music audiences consist of people who like music.
