Hello everyone …
Specializing in rare cuts by classic and modern bands, Prog Rock Deep Cuts is a forward thinking radio show that promises to match the obscure with the new and fresh. Intelligent, emotional, and visceral classic to modern progressive rock broadcasted live every Thursday from 7-10 pm EST on www.progrock.com.
This week (February 6th), Deep Cuts is proud to present yet another varied playlist. To start with, we’ll be featuring tracks from the highly anticipated collaboration from Peter Hammill (Van der Graaf Generator) and Gary Lucas (Captain Beefheart) entitled “Other Worlds”.
Though the playlist will ultimately be determined during the show, other music in consideration include tracks from Italian proggers Il Tempio delle Clessidre and their new record “AlieNatura” as well as classic tracks from Il Balletto di Bronzo’s “Ys”, a 1970’s rollercoaster ride of a concept album about Mount Vesuvius.
Additionally, cuts from Hamster Theater and their zany “Carnival Detournement”, led by accordionist Dave Willey, also of Thinking Plague. Also, tunes from the now-defunct obscure Pittsburgh-based progressive folk band Psoas (pronounced So-az) caught my ear as potential Deep Cuts material, a mysterious and subtle group marked by haunting acoustic guitar and female lead vocals.
To top it off, tracks from echolyn, Guapo, Djam Karet, and The Fierce and the Dead are in consideration. Lastly, classic music from Henry Cow, Hawkwind, Magma, and Egg will be sprinkled into the playlist, making for an epic and engaging voyage into prog’s less-charted waters.
Join us this Thursday on www.progrock.com and chat with us in the chat room for what is promising to be an exciting 3 hour trip through modern and classic progressive music!
