    Posted: September 24 2010 at 12:51


I think it is fair to say that this magazine has been a major source of debates in the prog rock scene since the first issue hit the street. An issue that also included an interview with our [email protected] and ProgArchives. Debates about Classic Rock Presents Prog regularly also pops up in our forum. Most of the issues raised are well worth debating and I have tried to cover all of them in my questions to the magazine.

I raised them to Jerry Ewing, the editor of †Classic Rock Presents Prog. I am very grateful to him for his answers and I hope they answers some of the questions raised by the readers of ProgArchives.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First of all, I want to state my honest opinion that your magazine is one of the best things happening to the scene since 1980. I also remember and I have some copies of some sporadic prog rock specials from Classic Rock magazine from the last ten years or so. Was these specials the forerunners and the motivation your mother magazine needed to start up Present Prog ? Please give us the history behind your magazine.

Thank you for your kind words. The genesis (for want of a better word) of Prog probably goes back a bit before that. I devised and launched Classic Rock magazine back in 1998 for Dennis Publishing, who at the time also owned Metal Hammer. Back then there was a fair bit of prog featured in the magazine. Anyway, I was then offered a job editing Maxim magazineís website and was keen to move into digital publishing so accepted and spent an enjoyable six years or so writing dirty jokes and looking at pictures of scantily clad women.

In the interim period Dennis sold both Classic Rock and Metal Hammer to Future Publishing, and I had remained contributing to both as a freelancer. When I eventually left Dennis Publishing to go freelance I continued working for both Hammer and Classic Rock. Then, when I attended the Classic Rock Awards in 2008 Ė the magazineís 10th Anniversary - I got to thinking about maybe starting a new magazine and the more I thought about it, I kept coming back to prog rock.

Although I enjoy most forms of music, thereís always been something about prog. I used to run a prog fanzine when I was at school in the early 80s Ė Court Jester Ė so it just seemed to make sense. The more I devised the new concept and spoke to other writers Iíve worked with over the years, people like Phil Wilding, Malcolm Dome, Alexander Milas, the project seemed to have legs. It made sense to approach Future Publishing about the idea, not least because I knew the Publisher of Metal Hammer and Classic Rock well. And I thought the idea would bolster the companyís music portfolio. So I had lunch with him, pitched the idea, he liked it and then took the idea to the Future board of directors. They agreed, and I got the phone call telling me to get in and get a new magazine out.

I think it is fair to say that your magazine is a massive success due to the fact you are releasing # 11 today. Are you satisfied or even surprised with how this magazine has been received and what is you main market, demographic wise ?

Well the first issue sold incredibly well. Given the cover price and the fact we were in the middle of a recession I think it took everyone here at Future Publishing by pleasant surprise. Since then itís settled down and continues to sell well, between 22-25,000 copies worldwide every issue. Obviously it caters for the progressive rock audience who didnít have anything on that kind of scale, although of course there are other excellent publications like Progressions and websites such as yours and Progressive Ears who do an excellent job of keeping the prog flag flying.

Let me first state that the following questions does not necessary represent the views of ProgArchives or myself. But I think it is a good idea to bring these grumblings to the surface and let you answer them.

No problem. We know prog fans love to have a grumble about most things, ha ha. Fire away.

Let's start with the cover price. Your magazine is one of the most expensive magazines, if not the most expensive magazine, in the newsagents. Why this 50 % added on price compared to Classic Rock magazine and other magazines ?

The price, Iím afraid was pre-set by Future Publishing.

I know itís a bone of contention with some readers/fans. Believe me, when we got told, as we were preparing the first issue, it came as a shock to everyone on the magazine, and not in a particularly good way either. I remember going to the pub with the publisher that evening feeling pretty dejected. We felt, given the then financial climate, we were pretty much dead in the water before weíd even started. I basically had to make a decision there and then Ė walk away or continue. I decided if there was nothing we could do about the price, then it was up to us to try and make the magazine the very best value for money we could.

We knew thereíd be a lot of griping about the price, and in the end some people would refuse to buy it on that point alone. Thatís fine. But we just hoped that those that did buy felt we were giving them something that approached value for money. It seems the majority do, although we still read comments to the contrary on some forums. Thereís one guy who seems to exist to sl*g us off on various prog forums, although he seems to buy most issues. Nowadays we find that level of abuse quite amusing, not least as most of the staff can predict whatís coming when he starts. But everyone has a right to express what they think, and we feel itís not right for us to become embroiled in debating these issues on the forums. Even if sometimes the criticism seems harsh, given the amount of time and effort everyone puts into creating the magazine, itís best we let the readers have their say in whatever manner they wish.

But back to the price issue Ė I personally had hoped the company would lower the cover price when they increased the frequency Ė we now come out every six weeks. There had been talk of that here, but at the end of the day you have to remember that Future Publishing is a PLC answerable to their shareholders, and theyíre in the job of publishing magazines to make money. We who create the magazines do it out of passion for the subject matter. But Future seem to have used Prog as a blueprint for other new launches Ė Comic Book Heroes and the forthcoming AOR magazine. Theyíre all the same price so it looks like itís something weíre stuck with.

As I said, we didnít set the price of our magazine, we agree itís costly and we try and make sure you get value for money. Something like The Word is about £5.80 I think, and I think Prog offers far more than that title. At the end of the day itís the price of what? Two pints? Iíd forego that for the coverage of prog we offer. I know not everyone will agree, and they have every right to feel like that of they so wish. Iím afraid itís an issue I have no control over.

Then we have the claims that your magazine is too centered on the big names and the smaller, some will say more interesting acts are being pushed in the background or even ignored. Does the likes of the Zeuhl and the lesser commercial genres within the prog rock family have a future in your magazine and what is your answer to the ďsell outĒ claims ?

Well we have to make sure the magazine sells. So itís always going to feature a major artist on the front cover. And in order to establish itself on the news stands it has to have a certain element of mass appeal. But these days I think weíre starting to look further afield. To us, progressive music is a broad church and we just havenít got round to broaching some areas of the genre. Nothingís being ignored though. It took us 11 issues to get round to putting Yes on the cover! Slowly but surely weíll get round to covering everything. Even Zeuhl.

Let's continue with some picked up objects from my radar screen. There are claims that Present Prog is too focused on British bands and is less accommodating towards other geographic scenes. Any comments ?

Well we are a British magazine. We did have the Prog Around The World feature but we ended up having huge problems getting usable photos for many of the bands. That feature will be reworked into a more usable format when we revamp the magazine in the coming months. But all four bands in the Threshold section of the latest issue are from abroad. As are the four in the issue weíre working on now. We are actively seeking out new young talent from around the world.

When you read this, I am picking up issue 11 in my local newsagent. The prog fans in Australia are looking forward to be able to buy issue 10 sometimes next week. I believe the same also goes for USA too. The distribution of your magazine is an issue, in other words. Is this a situation we have to live with or is there moves to speed up the distribution ?

The bulk of overseas copies are shipped out, not airfreighted. Thatís part of why it takes so long. That side of the business uses other parties, as do things like subscriptions, so theyíre areas where we perhaps donít always have the kind of control over that weíd like.

If the overseas buyers of your magazine switched over to subscription, would that mean they would get it faster ? Please advice your overseas buyers what to do.


Iíd have thought they would get it a lot quicker, yes. They can do so here: http://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/music/classic-rock-presents-prog-magazine-subscription/. But then again, as I said in my previous answer, some of these areas of the business use third parties. We recently changed subscription house and experienced all manner of teething troubles. Then you find that whilst some areas of whatever section of the business youíre looking at show a tenfold increase in performance, others, such as customer service might be sadly lacking.

Iíve been working in magazine publishing for over 20 years and these kind of problems have been ongoing. Like a lot of the post we get sent failing to arrive. Music magazines have been experiencing problems with the postal services for years, but there seems very little you can do about it.

For bands and artists among us who also want to be featured in Present Prog, to where do they send you their albums and what do they include in the package ? Do you review every prog rock relevant albums coming your way or are you pretty selective ?

We try and review everything we get sent. The amount of new progressive related releases is impressive and pleasing. The usual package will be a CD and a press release/biography. Sometimes a covering letter. Thatís pretty much adequate. Sometimes the American bands (not mentioning any names) will go way too overboard with what they send in. But at the end of the day itís great to be receiving all this music. It shows how healthy and vibrant the scene is.


Over to the CDs. How do you choose the bands and the tracks for each CD ?

Standard practice on all covermounted CDs on all our magazines is that bands buy onto them. Although we do reserve the right to say no if we feel a band isnít right for the magazine.

Besides of your Facebook profile, you do not have any cyberworld presence. Any plans to get a proper homepage ?


I donít know to be honest. Weíre pretty happy with the Facebook and Twitter set up because we like the direct interaction with our readers. Iím not sure how much more weíd benefit from further Internet presence now that Facebook has become such a big phenomenon. And, as Iíve previously said, websites such as yours and Progressive Ears do such a good job already. Why put ourselves in direct competition with you guys on the Net?

What is the plans for your magazine for the near future ? Are you keeping the current release schedule or are you planning to change it ?

Well, like I said, we now come out every six weeks. Iíd assume we wonít change from that. And we have a new Art Editor starting on Monday. So there will be a revamp of the magazine in terms of design and new features over the next few months.

I am aware that you do not have a magic crystal ball in your office. But what do you think the long term future will bring for both your magazine and the prog rock scene ?

Well prog is very much a self-sustaining genre. It needed to be to survive the fallow years in the 90s. Itís currently in rude health and has sustained that since the magazine has been going. Please donít think Iím assuming credit for that Ė the genre was burgeoning before we launched. But Iíd like to think weíve helped raise the profile. †And a festival like High Voltage which generated a lot of mainstream press interest in both the genre and the magazine. As I told the Guardian when they interviewed me in the summer, prog wonít ever be the next big thing. Nor does it need to be. That wouldnít be beneficial. But itís always been there and I believe thatís the way it will remain. With the idiotic preconceptions that used to exist in the UK music press dying off, then more and more young people are going to want to explore an intriguing and challenging genre and to create thoughtful music. Itíll be very interesting to see where else they take progressive music forms.

Finally, is there anything you want to add to this interview ?

Thank you for your support and for the opportunity to help spread the word. Prog on.


Thank you to Jerry Ewing for answering my questions


I wish everyone in

Classic Rock Presents Prog†

all the best††

Superb interview Torodd, congratulations. Thanks to Jerry too for being so candid in his answers.  The comments re the price are particularly interesting. I can't help but feel that a reduction would bring a disproportionate rise in circulation though.
 
One side effect of the prog specials which I have perceived is that Classic rock magazine has lost its appeal for me. It seems that all the best stuff is being held back for the prog magazine. CR and Metal Hammer seem to have become more and more one and the same.

Thanks for that.  Great interview.

I have said in the past that the cover price was one of the reasons that I don't get every issue and I am glad that question was asked.

Great interview, and the price is a bit hefty, so I've only bought one issue so far, but I'll probably buy more in the future. Just not every one. Also, I just figured the price was so high because it was an imported magazine. XD

Interesting Clap Though I've never actually opened the magazine. I hunted for it when the first one came out, but ended up leaving it in the store when I saw the price. Sad to hear it's still the same way, but perhaps some day in the future I can skip eating for a week and buy it once.

Funny. Over at Prog Ears one of the main criticisms aimed at the magazine is that they are far too much UK oriented and with too much of a focus on old bands and not enough for contemporary acts.

Personally I think they manage the balance quite nicely, and don't think they could do much more for up and coming acts without seriously affecting circulation. The big names have always and will always sell, after all.

Great Interview answering a lot of contentious issues very well.
 
Personally I love the mag as its pure PROG without other music infecting it overall and I cant see why the price tag is such a problem when you get a glossy mag chock full of prog and a great sampler CD!. I will never miss an issue and sub to my newsagent in Australia. I learn about new bands and old and love to sit down of an evening and read it. Those who complain are NOT worth listening to - the mag is excellent and I hope it continues forever.

              I agree they are too UK oriented, and also too geared towards
     the pop side of the spectrum. Case in point : In their recent "Critics
     Choice" poll of the best albums of 2010, they voted ASIA's Omega
      as the 7th best of the year ! A lot of these bands such as Panic Room,
      Touchstone, and The Reasoning, are very visible because they are
      out there touring, so it makes sense that they would get a lot of 
       coverage. I still love the mag though, and think it's great that they
       try to get exposure for new bands.

Very interesting interview Torodd. Thumbs Up

I enjoy the magazine and buy most copies but I do share the general views of it being expensive. I think it could be a mistake to make the magazine too regular as while I think many wont mind shelling out 8 quid every couple of months, if it ever became monthly then sales may fall.
 
Hope it keeps going after the current resurgence in prog has passed.

Just a note on the CD with the latest issue. The track list on the cover is in the wrong order. The Pallas track comes first, then 1-6 are actually 2-7. When i firts heard it I though Pallas had really changed their style!Shocked

Hi,
 
Quote
...
Well prog is very much a self-sustaining genre. It needed to be to survive the fallow years in the 90s. Itís currently in rude health and has sustained that since the magazine has been going. Please donít think Iím assuming credit for that Ė the genre was burgeoning before we launched. But Iíd like to think weíve helped raise the profile.
...
 
I disagree.
 
And we can easily mention Djam Karet, as one of the finest examples, and one that embodies the spirit of "progressive" a lot more than the majority of the bands listed in the magazine, and the "majors" that help sell the magazine.
 
No time, was ever the "fallow years" ... anywhere ... the real issue was that we were only listening to one thing, or the things that we had heard before, and we did not have good enough ears to know about, and check out the new things that were coming around ... we might as well say that Ozric Tentacles didn't matter and that Porcupine Tree ... ohh it's just some kid playing with tapes ... and we are failing to see that we had filters in our heads, and some of us did not have a clue as to why we were listening to that stuff in the first place ... we just liked it!
 
There is new music, all the time, any time, in every time, anywhere all over the world ... it might not be called "progressive" because that term has killed more music than it is trying to help ... and it is scary to hear you say that ... you, of all people should know better, but it is hard for me to feel that you do when you say that! And there are only two groups that ignore those musicians ... they are the record companies -- they are in it to make money after all so why show you a JoeNobodySchmoe ... and then the press -- which as you say, you have to sell magazines, and the down side of that is ... not discussing what does NOT sell, or no one knows, because that would not give anyone buying the magazine an excuse to buy it!  ... but it also tells me that you don't have the ability, or the knowledge, or the desire, or the spunk, to write about something new and different ... you have to "sell" with the old stuff!
  
Sorry, not trying to be rude, but just making a call for a wider point of view of what "music" is ... and we might as well chuck "progressive" because it ain't digital kind of thing ... it's really scary ... there is a lot of my history and my time that has been major and important to me. And there are bands and works in all the decades that matter ... but you kept waiting for the same 5 behemoths to come back from the dead!
 
How can anyone, an artist, a writer, a musician, come up and become the next Stravinsky, the next Picasso, the next Hemingway, when ... you are more concerned with the old stuff? ... you can't! In the end, you either have gutz, or your periodical will die. Let's see how many times you can publish The Oyster, or The Pearl, and discuss it, and find out that no one cares anymore! And prog anything will be dead because ... not for me! and I'm only one ...  and I might as well tell you this story, about Ernest Hemingway talking to my father about a translation, when my dad said ... what about the publishers? ... and he said out loud ... "F___'em"! ... and the older I get, the more I realize that the son of a gun was right ... and it is even sadder to simply hear someone ... yet again ... defend their periodical as "journalism" ... it's like a message in a bottle, arrived 30 years too late and the subject is long dead! ... Cry ... write your poem, now, if you dare!

The magaziner has made an impact on the genre as now thousands will know the term and understand it. A mag like this can lead to the next addict of VDGG, Rush, DT, Porcupine Tree or Yes. That cant be a bad thing! i got into prog moe seriously when I bought a prog mag many years ago. I was amazed that the bands I liked were all lumped into one category - that was a fulfilling revelation to me.

Funny how everytime a magaizine, website, whatever comes along which talks about the music I and many of my peers want to hear about, people immediately want to change it. There are plenty of places for new music to be talked about and heard. If you don't like the style of tha magazine as it is (Moshkito) don't buy it. Please do not though try to change it, spoling it for those for whom it is fine just as it is.
