Progressive Biography

Do me a favour: don't read the details below, but skip through to the Unsigned Bands section in the forums

I was born, and raised. Right now, I try to raise my own children.

At, I was part of the admin team for about 4.5 years, with a gap of half a year somewhere in the middle. I set up the Unsigned Bands forum, and worked with the genre teams on various things. That all had to give way to my own business (now 2.5 businesses) and a cover band (my 3rd by now).

I still appreciate prog as advertised on this site though, and every once in a while I hop onto the forums again, or post a review. This is a place where I made musical friend around the world, and as long as it exists, it will have place in my musical heart.

Favourite prog albums of all time, in no particular order, and with the restriction of one per band:

  • Corvus Stone - II

  • Hectic Watermelon - The Great American Road Trip

  • Gong - Shamal

  • Genesis - Selling England by the Pound

  • Embryo - Opal

  • Marillion - Clutching at Straws

  • Savatage - Streets (A rock opera)

  • Pavlov's Dog - Pampered Menial

  • Rush - Moving Pictures

  • Nuit Cline la Villa mon Rve - Juillet 1977

  • Edensong - The Fruit Fallen

  • Sonar - Celluloid

  • The Tea Club - General Winter's Secret Museum

Those interested in prog, music in general, photography and traveling should have a look at my weblog on these topics some time:
