On April 5th, the classic rock station commemorated Cozy Powell's passing by playing Emerson, Lake and Powell's Touch and Go, while also dedicating it to Keith Emerson.

Was watching college baseball (Mississippi State at Auburn) on ESPN today, and the organist was playing Genesis' That's All between innings. The announcer misidentified it as being a Phil Collins song, and all I could think was, "Brother, you don't know the half of it."

Not really a public place, but was watching the Astroboy cartoon (1980 version) with the kids, and Mysterious Forest by AIN SOPH started playing in key parts of the episode. I have a youtube video here with proof:


Around 1:30 mark the intro for the title track plays for a bit, also around 3:00 mark it starts playing some parts of Natural Selection on the same album. Then at 21:42 plays another part of the title track, and badly damaged. Wild huh? Well, i guess to be fair they both came out in 1980, but still a surprise.

The title track:

"21st Century Schizoid Man" was playing on the speakers in a marketplace I went to this week. I was probably grinning like an idiot because I recognized it.

The New York Mets organist is a prog, early hard rock, etc. fan  During pregame preparations--you know, an hour or so before a game, I've heard him play (on different occasions--I go to a lot of games) at least parts or shorter arrangements of ELP's "Karn Evil 9", Yes' "Starship Trooper", Jethro Tull's "Nothing Is Easy", Deep Purple's "Woman from Tokyo", Uriah Heep's "Gypsy", Iron Butterfly's "My Mirage" and others.

Well I found something that was unexpected. Not the place (the Internet and it was a Pink Floyd song...) But, as I was looking for odd things Floydian I found a cover that was... gulp, genuine 24 carat disco cover of Welcome To The Machine. Can't find it now but... that was unexpected. It was a bit like a road smash. Appalling but one can't help but not stare (hear) in fascinated horror.

Recently saw a remix of Queen's Flash Gordon theme ("Flash! ouahaaaahhh...") for a TV ad of the video game "Clash Royale" TV.

Easily one of the most disturbing ad I've ever seen...
Do you have it in your country too?

Ok, I'm literally freaking out right now. Watching the show Mozart in the Jungle, which is a comedy about musicians in the New York Film Harmonic. And two of them are looking through he Oboist (and also antagonist's) record collection. She just said "I also have an extensive collection of prog rock".

Episode 4 Series 1 Goodnight Sweetheart. Uni dance hall, ultra banal music plays. Background poster - Deep Purple - Battle Rages On logo: Come Hell or High Water tour. Very apt for a time travel comedy...

I heard ELP's Karn Evil 9 - 1st Impression - Part 2 playing on the muzak at the local grocery store today. I have heard a few things there over the years but this beats them all.  Clap

It was the real deal. I guess it technically wasn't Muzak but a similar type service that plays mostly 70s and up pop and rock. I have heard things like Invisible Touch played before. Today it seemed to be more oriented to 70s era rock.

This morning I saw an episode of Arthur that featured the experimental music ensemble, the Bang On A Can All-Stars, who had turned everyone in Elwood City into avant-prog fans, except for Binky of course!
