From the Crossdressing Conference we have one of the great early progressive rock bands.

From England

PROCOL HARUM



From the Neo Conference we have... a Neo group LOLLOL

From England

IQ!!!!!



Vegas oddmakers have installed Procol Harum as a 10 vote favorite. Can IQ pull  the upset, will the Neo weenies show in force or will the anti-Neo forces band together to stamp IQ out. We shall see!

The first vote is for IQ.

Another vote for Procol Harum - a band that, almost 50 years after it first started, can still wow fans when on stage. I remember getting goosebumps when they played "A Salty Dog" at Wolf Trap three years ago, when opening for Jethro Tull. And Gary Brooker still has one of the best voices in the business!

IQ are probably my favourite band after Camel.

i really like Procol Harum, but they do not compare to IQ.

I don't have anything by either, I know PH reasonably well & listened to an IQ album last night to see (again) if I was missing something. I've come to the conclusion I shouldn't be voting on these bands. Can both lose?

Procol Harum are pioneers of Prog and predecessors of Symphonic



IQ is just a nice band of followers (Of course IMHO).

Mi vote goes for the Harums

This is a no-brainer for me.  IQ all the way.

^ I think 'a nice band of followers' is a bit unfair ("Harvest of Souls" aside).  Mike Holmes was fusing modern electronic looping into symphonic sounding music earlier than anyone that I can think of.

Procol Harum without a second thought.

It depends on the album Ian. If I were only to hear Subterranea the vote would be for PH without a second thought. It applies the other way around too. If I was not familiar with Shine On Brightly IQ would be the easy choice.

Procol Harum by a large big enourmous bit.  They still manage to sound quite modern after all this time.  An I'm sure that bands like Elbow are heavily influenced by them.  Listened to them with the BBC Orchestra last week and they were tremendous.

Procol  Harum like The Moody Blues have a few songs that I like but not an entire album. IQ on the other hand has many that I enjoy. IQ is my pick.
