Dutch indie label SI Music were among the few providers of sophisticated rock in the 1990's. Or at least of the few relatively well known at the time. From their first release in 1990 until they closed their doors in 1996 they released many gems, in particular in the style most tend to refer to as Neo-Progressive rock.

Below is a list of all their known releases. Links to artist and album pages in the Progarchives database have been added when applicable, same goes for links to Spotify.

...oh, incidentally, would it have been possible to have these label threads somewhere else than in news from prog suppliers admins?
As there will be more such threads, and many of them will concern defunct labels. Like this one.

Olav - I just came to this from the link in your signature, as I thought I would have a look against SI as I used to often be in contact with Willebrord (who I recently 'spoke' to through LastFM) and I think I was sent virtually everything from Simply 6 through to the end. The Winter album may have been short, but is stunning with 'Toybox' being a classic.

But, why is there no link for Blyndsyde? How come they're not in PA? I still have their earlier tape plus the CD, and would have thought that they would have been in the neo-prog box. Certainly they were part of that scene, being often featured in the Scottish fanzine 'Blindsight' (which was my way into the prog underground at the time). They're not marked as being excluded per se, or have they been since you put this up?

BTW, you also list WMMS - who hold the record for sending me the most CDs in one go - more than 30! I was stunned when I got a parcel from Germany with those. It came as no surprise to me that they later went under.

Blyndsyde - currently facing rejection in the heavy prog team for being non-prog I believe. And I suspect you'd have to subject the neo team to water torture before they would accept the band. Have a go if you feel like it :-)

That's a pity. I'm playing the album now for the first time in years, and feel that there is a certain neo-prog naivety to it all - but possibly I hear that as it brings back thoughts of the wonderful underground scene we had in the UK back then.

Oh well, more labels to cater for anyhow. I don't remember if I have managed to check all the WMMS bands, but there are still tons and tons and tons of prog labels yet to make such lists as this one for and to check their releases against the database. Luna Negra and Rock Symphony to mention just two of the plentiful I have yet to take a look at...

Oh, and if you can provide samples for Lives and Times and Van Otterdyke the remaining blanks on this one can be checked...

I don't have any Van Otterdyke, and just the one L&T album, but I need to drop Richard a line thanking him for the new Karda Estra album that arrived yesterday so I'll ask him what is available - sure he'll happily oblige. So will let you know how I get on with that.

And what about Cyclops? Virtually everything that Malcolm released was prog and was a starting point for many bands such as Credo, Vulgar Unicorn, Mostly Autumn, PO90 etc

Yup, Cyclops is another one I need to go through as well. As I said, there are tons of prog labels out there, past and present ;-)

Hey, I was thinking too about Van Otterdyke the last few days, finding out that it hasn't been added to the database. I have the lp "The Sirens" and there's definitely prog on it. I'd say it's crossover prog.
There was some good SI music: the Coda cd's, stuff by Clive Nolan, Cliffhanger, Geoff Mann, Peter Gee, Collage...

SI was a hugely important label for the prog scene in the early Nineties, releasing some wonderful material.
