1972’s Cabbage Alley is often lauded as the band’s finest collection, and it certainly has a strong case It’s been said many times (often by me, come to think of it) that the early to mid 1970s were an unrivalled time of experimentation and boundary-blurring, as bands discovered and played with new influences all the..
King King are pleased to announce that the incredible Hannah Wicklund & Steppin’ Stones will be special guests on their upcoming UK Tour. The South Carolina-born guitarist met King King during on Joe Bonamassa’s Keeping the Blues Alive At Sea Mediterranean Cruise in August 2019 and is looking forward to touring with them. The Glaswegian..
The variety of the album is what makes it relevant, with each track reflecting the mood of different Dali works or parts of his personality. That might sound pretentious, but hey, Dali could make swans reflect elephants, so electronic compositions can certainly reflect him! Well now, here's something rather special for the not inconsiderable number..
The Alan Parsons Project can be seen in some ways as one of the more unlikely successes of the late-‘70s and early ‘80s. Indeed, just as punk was, supposedly, sweeping the prog dinosaurs away (and undoubtedly making that genre much harder to succeed in for quite some time), along came this collective, named after a..
Dutch proggers THE DAME are bringing their unique 1920s-themed live show to the UK with a string of dates in February.

Like Sunburst Finish before it, it's a meticulously arranged album, with not a note out of place and everything in the service of the song Be Bop Deluxe, led by the closest thing the '70s had to a second Bryan Ferry in the shape of the dapper and stylish Bill Nelson, were always a square..
Take Control leaps from the speakers with a riff you could boil down to make soup with... Ah yes, the NWOBHM, or New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, to give it its full name! For those who were around at the time, it really was the most tremendously thrilling time to be a metal fan...
The first thing fans of RPWL will want to know is just how similar it is to the band's output, I imagine. The answer to that is, pleasingly, close enough without being indistinguishable Looking at the cover of this promo disc, the first solo album from RPWL vocalist / keyboard man Yogi Lang, threw up..
...Medicine Man ... has every single aspect of what made the Stones genuinely thrilling in 1972 right in place. Okay, an admission here before we go any further: when I see EPs by a new band I generally tend to give them cursory attention at best. Not because of any distrust of the music contained..
