Spring is almost upon us and for me, this means one thing – Spring Break! Also for me, this means one more thing (actually that’s two things now) – more music time!
So, what does this mean for this week’s Deep Cuts (3/13)? Well, this means that I get more music time! (And if this post has taught me anything, it’s that I should probably cut down on my use of the word ‘mean’!).
So what have we got this week, then? Well, as Saint Patrick’s Day is just under a week away, I thought I’d do a tribute to Irish folk in prog. Horslips‘ The Táin, a concept album based on Irish folk tales, comes to mind immediately as a perfect album in the vein of progressive Irish folk / rock, as well as Mellow Candle‘s wonderfully intense and beautiful Swaddling Songs, a rare album that never quite gets its due in the prog sphere.
Additionally, we’ll also be paying a lengthy tribute to the 46th anniversary of one of my favorite records, Frank Zappa’s We’re Only in it for the Money, released in March of 1968. We’ll top it off with some rare live Magma, Chris Buzby’s Finneus Gauge, Doctor Nerve, and live John Zorn, making for an epic journey through prog’s uncharted waters.
