Progressive Biography

Hmm, I never know what to put in this kind of thing. Talking about myself is harder than talking about general relativity in a made up language/system of numbers. I suppose I could do what some others have done and list some bands/albums I particularly enjoy, that kind of stuff.

I'm particularly a fan of Zeuhl, RIO/Avant, Canterbury Scene, Krautrock and Prog Electronic (primarily the Berlin School side of things), but I like at least bits of everything.

Here's an A-Z list of prog bands, one per letter (usually), with a favorite album by each band:

Ash Ra Tempel - Ash Ra Tempel
Banco del Mutuo Soccorso - Darwin!
Cardiacs - A Little Man and a House and the Whole World Window / Can - Tago Mago/Monster movie (sorry, couldn't choose between those two bands or Can albums)
Dom - Edge of Time
Etron fou Leloublan - Les 3 Fous...
Faust - Faust IV
Guru Guru - UFO
Henry Cow - Unrest / Hatfield and the North - s/t
Imahoritsuneoyoshidatatsuya - Dots (not a big selection of bands in my collection who start with I)
Jan Dukes de Grey - Mice and Rats in the Loft
King Crimson - Discipline / Kraftwerk - Kraftwerk 1
Lüger - s/t
miRthkon - Vehicle (yes, they've uprooted Magma)
Neu! - Neu! / National Health - Of Queues and Cures
Organisation - Tone Float
Picchio dal Pozzo - s/t
Q - no prog artists starting with Q in my collection.
Rush - Hemispheres
Schulze, Klaus - Cyborg
Talking Heads - Remain in Light
Univers Zéro - s/t
Volapük - Slang!
Weidorje - s/t
Xing Sa - Creation de l'univers
Yatha Sidhra - A Meditation Mass
Zappa, Frank - You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore, Vol. 2 / Zamla Mammaz Manna - Familjesprickor
