Prog Rock

Did any of you see BBC 4 Prog Rock programmes last night? Genesis, Yes,Jethro Tull,Caravan,Soft Machine,King Crimson and many,many more! It was amazing- and more to come this weekend!

In many ways it reminded me of the Baroque Music and Architectural movement ...

Anyway I loved /love this style of music and it was great seeing it getting the attention it deserves. Anyone else a sucker for Roger Dean album covers and mutibanked keyboards...


  1. I missed the prog rock thing, both when it happened for real and on the TV last night. I'll try to dig it out on the internet, though. Thanks for the tip!


  2. OH I WAS A HUGE YES FAN! back in my days of early gaming, and every time I hear one of their songs I think if playing AH and SPI games on the floor of my bedroom, with the big headphones on...(and actually one of my architecture students many years later went to work for Rodger Dean as an apprentice for a year..)
