Re: OT: Prog Rock in 5 minutes ;-)

Despite the bulky, byzantine, laughable facade of Prog, therein lies the ongoing quest for creating entire worlds in sound (and sometimes theatre). Gentle Giant, Hatfield and the North, Van Der Graff Generator? Not gathering dust in my collection! I consider Soft Machine, Matching Mole, Carla Bley's "Escalator Over The Hill" to be bastard offspring of Prog. Even Magma seems closely linked, if only in spirit. The Lunar Asylum? Alien Bipolar Prog!!!
