The Progzilla Files Episode 07 | The Larks’ Tongue Project (6 September 2015)

That they have released four tracks called Larks’ Tongue In Aspic is one of the few threads of continuity in an almost 50-year bumpy ride.

Progzilla Files #07 also includes three KC-related tunes.

“If you don’t know your note, hit C#. If you don’t the time, play in 5. Or 7. If you don’t know what to play, get more gear. If you still don’t know what to play, play nothing.”
