I think "Roots of prog" was a great addition, even Deep Purple makes more sense now. If it should contain those psychedelic bands, which didn't "envolve" (or "degenerate" ) to prog, please at NIRVANA as a proto prog band!

To make a rhyme, you could also add BONZO DOG DOO DAH BAND!

I guess Nirvana could fit under the proto prog genre, as they did do the earliest concept album in 'The Story Of Simon Simopath', but to me it's pure pop psychedelia- it's great stuff, but I hear little progressive in it. I had 'Local Anaesthetic' a few years ago, which was an attempt to go prog, but I found it to be dire, and one of the poorer Vertigo albums.

Good summary Salmacis. As you say, "Local Anaesthetic" was probably their closest to prog, but it was dull and uninspired.

I fist discovered the band on the Island sampler "You can all join in", which included the track "Rainbow chaser". I was blown away by the song which, at the time, was so wonderfully original.

Nirvana UK can have a home in the Roots of Prog section.
