Squid, I knew you had a prog past (from your website), but didn't know if you'd put it behind you these days. Killer Tikiyaki follow-up, BTW: I got the flight bag stuff yesterday, and your mug is a classic. Here's some other prog acts you may not be familiar with (besides the civilly-put-forth Cabezas de Cera):
Ars Nova (femme from Japan)
Birdsongs of the Mesozoic
Blackfield
Doracor
Finch
The Flower Kings (earlier stuff)
Gongzilla
Hostsonaten
Karmakanic
Magenta
Mastermind
Modry Efekt
Niacin
Ozric Tentacles
Pekka Pohjola
Solution
Speechless (Time Out of Mind cd)
Stern Combo Meissen
Schicke, Fuhrs & Frohling
Univers Zero (start with "1313")
Uzva
Wigwam

I was fortunate enough to hear Hatfield & the North and Caravan two years ago, and Van der Graaf Generator this year. Next year we get a Gentle Giant splinter group.

"1. RUSH is definitely a prog rock band, on all counts."

In comparison to Elton John, sure. ***yawn***

"2. It's like saying that "Weather Report ain't really jazz fusion, check out 'Oregon' if you want to see real fusion"."

No. It's like saying " I don't PERSONALLY care for Kenny G. I would prefer to listen to Andrew Hill and Ornette Coleman."

"Not myoptic at all!"

I never said you were. I wrote a funny headline directed at the lurkers. I know you have a wide taste in music. You're also a lovable, argumentative old coot, even when there is no argument being levied.

"I stopped listening to a lot of prog rock not because I was only exposed to a narrow slice of it, but because like most music critics, I grew to want good melodies and lyrics that meant something, or were not so much fantasy/sci fi based. Essentially, I grew up. Trippy, deep music no longer appeals to me like it did before."

And thus my point is made. It's all what you like, for whatever reason. It ain't "this band's better than that band" or any of that crap.

Of course not! One man's Sangria is another man's hawaiian punch!

Lucas, I hate to de-rail your thread, but you know me - any chance I get to connect RUSH & tiki...

Yes, once again, it's BIG AL'S TIKI BAR!!

Episode 1:
http://web.archive.org/web/20041024014238/http://www.rush.com/php/media/band/alex/tiki1.swf

Episode 2: http://web.archive.org/web/20050601115718/www.rush.com/php/media/band/alex/tiki2.swf

To get this thread back on track: I once picked up a mint condition Amon Duul II 'Tanz de Lemminge' cd at a garage sale. It was sold to me by a 9 year-old French girl who claimed it was her favorite cd and that her mom was making her sell it. True story.

And you bought it anyway just to see her cry, didn't you?

well this will probably get panned by all of you.
but here goes.

some surfish/progish bands, please give a listen.

http://www.myspace.com/daikaiju
http://www.myspace.com/mermensurf

more metal surf, than prog, but still intense, and def not pipeline surf:
http://www.myspace.com/necronomikids

and these guys have hints of surf here and there, but if you told them that they would probably get mad

I was very into ELP in the early to mid '70's, probably because they sprang from some of my favourite '60's bands (the Nice, King Crimson and the Crazy World of Arthur Brown). I went to every show they played here (San Diego) and loved it. Some other bands I enjoyed back then were Tangerine Dream, Gnome Flying Teapot, Kraftwork, Matching Mole, Eno, Throbbing Gristle, and Suicide. Not all of these bands are considered "Prog Rock" by definition, but where is the line drawn between prog rock, industrial, electronica, ambient, experimental and white noise?
