There are some really interesting stories in the latest PROG including an interview with EDGAR BROUGHTON (I saw them once and am still slightly traumatised by a) the amount of hair on the stage and b) the cry of ‘OUT DEMONS OUT!’); the news of PETER GABRIEL’s tenth solo albums “i/o” and the imminent release of a 7(!!)LP’ 50th anniversary edition of MAGMA’s 1973 album “Mëkanïk Dëstruktïw Kömmandöh”; a super deluxe version of THE YES ALBUM; a new album from PALLAS, “The Messenger” (15th December), and an interview with FISH on a re-mix of 2007’s “13th Star” in a 3 LP deluxe set.

I couldn’t believe it when it was brought to my attention that it is eight years since DAEVID ALLEN died, but as the PROG article shows, KAVUS TORABI and co have proved to be the perfect inheritors of the GONG legacy (Naturally enough the article is entitled “Turning the Allen Key”)

But the thing that caught my attention most was the return of “Prog, Jim, Not as We Know it” and MIDLAKE’S “The Trials of Van Occupanther”, a stone cold classic if there ever was one.
