The Show That Never Ends (Part II)

Part II of a discussion of Dave Weigel’s new book The Show That Never Ends, a history of Progressive Rock, which is getting all sorts of discussion on social media. The chat ended breaking down into two broad topics. Part I was about Robert Fripp vs. Keith Emerson. This time, we discuss the notion of Progressive Rock as ‘art’ or entertainment.

RCWikipedia. I didn’t get the reference.

JCHWow. I gotta stop doing jokes like that. I haven’t seen a for realz skin mag in twenty years. Anyhoo, nothing but interviews. Probably the biggest thing to happen to ‘Prog’ in a decade. And I have to admit, […]

I Know What You Want: Dance Music

I Know What You Want: Dance music. We decide to tackle a thorny subject. After unexpectedly great initial sales, fans decide realize complain mightily. Nice beat. I Give it an 85. But is it really ‘Prog’? Talking Heads. Kraftwerk.

Roger CortonAfter some pretty great initial results, the sales of Progress plummeted like the proverbial stone. Expected?

I Know What You Want (Snippet)

JCHExpected. Or rather, I think the fact that the initial sales were good was the unexpected part.

RCPart of it was, I think, the fact that some of us were expecting a (hate to bring up a sort spot) a tour.

JCHI get it.

RCAnd I think another issue, which we’ve decided to handle

JCHFULL FRONTAL. NOW DON’T SUGAR COAT IT, SON!
