I have to say that they deeply suck!

Violet District rules! Not RPWL!

Couples of Violet District members left to form a band named RPWL; I've heard Trying to kiss the sun and it is UNlistenable. IT sounds too much bland alternative rock.  This is the right example of band that could kill prog rock, as alternative rock killed hard rock.

I've listened to both bands and although I liked Violet District, I found RPWL to be enjoyable. I really don't find myself listening to either one a lot though.

BTW- nothing will kill Prog. There are too many of us sharing this wonderful stuff with others. My 15 yr old son loves Gentle Giant, Spock's Beard, IQ, Happy the Man, and Porcupine Tree. My 18yr old son likes Tool, A Perfect Circle, Opeth, Dream Theater, and Pink Floyd. Yes, I've corrupted them. I'm proud of it too. Neither of them listens to the radio very much. They prefer to choose what they listen to.

shake your head as the world just nods away...

At this young age, you have to show them other stuff than hip-hop and alterno. If not, they will be influenced by other young people. The young does not have the reflex to seek other music. If the young's choice is rap & alterno, then it starts bad for him!

At least, if young people don't choose prog, classsical or jazz, at least they should choose something positive & sane!

In Norway a few years ago we had a minister of culture that said we should brainwash children with classical music from at least kindergarten age,that way,when they grew up,they would have been taught how to appreciate good music and therefore would. My view of politicians is like Alvy Singer's in "Annie Hall", a notch underneath child molester,but here's at least one politician I can respect!
