I don't know them, but I've heard of them.

...it made me think of CHiPs.

actually, i never heard such a funny & lively prog band! they make me think a bit about thinking plague, but infinitely more funny and less dark. they almost have a big band style and cabaret dancing atmosphere combined with latino arrangements. they make good beach boys imitations!

This is not another comment from someone who never heard 'em or don't like 'em. I have their 2nd(?) cd-release 'Buck Fever' and I think it's pretty good. Lots of great playing, very well recorded and with a healthy dose of humor. Prog? Maybe not in the traditional sense, but still more interesting than another Genesis-clone (and to avoid misunderstandings: I like old Genesis as well).

If Mr. Bungle is here than Estradasphere belongs here.

Firstly, have you yet made any comments not either praising ELP or criticising people who aren't ELP (which is quite a few)?

Secondly, do you know anything about Estradasphere? Or do you mean a year at the most on top of the several years (I admit, I don't know exactly, but I think they've done three or four albums and a DVD) that they've already played for?

You don't really have a leg to stand on, when complaining about people criticising ELP, if you're going to insult the vast majority of other bands left right and centre. Or is this all an elaborate joke created by somebody to expose how ludicrous the stereotypical ELP fan is? I hope so, but if not, then you're living a cliché and for your own sake I hope you can leave it.

 

On topic, I love Estradasphere. Have you heard any bootlegs? If not, check out http://www.archive.org/audio/etreelisting-browse.php?collect ion=etree&cat=Estradasphere&PHPSESSID=0ef8f0e8e7538e ca6da24a33baa75217 for a healthy few. I definitely recommend the Jazz Club one. Also, I'd call them prog but I can see a lot of people disagreeing. Either way they're a very interesting listen.

 

edit: when I say "I hope you can leave it" I wasn't alluding to suicide at all; I meant to stop acting in a clichéd manner (had to clear that one up!).

Picked up Palace of Mirrors.  This isn't Prog, plain and simple.  It's SOUNDTRACK music and would fit very well into a number of films, but has no place in Prog Archives.

karny's a legend that some would like to forget.  I was a long-time lurker before joining and remember some of his antics.

To uselessly answer greenback's old question:  I know Estradasphere -- excellent band.  I'm very happy to have discovered it thanks to the archives a couple of years ago.

Palace of Mirrors isn't their only album. And P of M IS a movie soundtrack.

They previously released 1999's "It's Understood", 2001's "Buck Fever", 2004's "Quadropus", and a number of live albums and eps.

Estradasphere have a change-on-a-dime kitchen sink format, going from death metal to world music to big-band to 8-bit video game score to jazz to hiphop to electronica to country to folk to classical to miscellaneous format, sometimes in the course of ONE song!.

Their first albums were released on Trevor Dunn's Web of Mimicry label, and much like Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, moved over to The End Records.

Mimicry is Spruance's label; they're on the End Records now.
 
Listen to Songs like Hunger Strike and Meteorite Showers before you decide they're not "Prog enough."  I'm highly awaiting their new CD, but I'm still gonna miss Whooley and Murray. :(

I'm disappointed - neither of these players are avant-garde!

Well I don't know about this band, but this guy definitely doesn't belong here. Good thing he's not.
