Andy chats with fellow podcaster The Squire about those bands and songs that formed the basis of the first wave of progressive rock.
Listen to tracks by The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Procol Harum, The Moody Blues, The Who, Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation, The Beatles, Eric Burdon and the Animals, Second Hand, Bobak Jons Malone, The Nice, Arzachel, Family, Heavy Jelly, Ace Kefford Stand and Deep Purple – and see if you agree!
This morning I interviewed Clive Mitten, formerly of Twelfth Night, about his new album Suite Cryptique, which reworks and recomposes Twelfth Night’s music from 1978 to 1983 in various styles of classical music.
Clive explained how the album came about, and referenced several excerpts with some of their influences. So we’ll hear pieces from Suite Cryptique alongside the works of Anna Merideth, Steve Reich, Michael Nyman, John Adams, Nils Frahm and Max Richter and modern versions of pieces by Bach, Beethoven and Mozart.
The interview will be broadcast at 8pm GTM on Friday 6 April at www.progzilla.com
