Given that recording of  IQ's albums tend to progress at glacial speed I wouldn't expect anything before late 2014 at the earliest Wink.

LOL

Here's hoping anyway.

I'm looking forward to hearing how Edwards and Holmes sound like now, they were the real highlight of Frequency for me.

Strike that, I just saw that Paul Cook is back behind the drums! What!?!? I didn't know that.
Anyway that's what wiki says: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IQ_(band)

Yep, the Cookie monster rejoined late in 2009, and they are almost back to where they started from (Mark Ridout and Carmine Brudenell notwithstanding). One day I reckon Martin Orford will have a change of heart (or run out of money - not everyone downloads everything they own illegally, it must be said!) and maybe the classic line up will play on stage together again some time - even if only as a one-off Christmas Gig...Well, we'll see... Smile

The classic line up Will once again pay major divit ends, but for now I think it's a great line up. Too bad there is no more Jowitt, but it's neat to have the original bass player back in Tom Esau. Awesome!!!

Oh and I should say that I don't mind that IQ move at Glacial speed as some of you have said here. IQ difinately have have a formula that is working. Boy. Ever since the EVER album
IQ have really been the best band in Neo Prog history. Hands down.
I say, ' let them be snails in the studio!!' keep in mind, FREQUENCY was an incredible album and that will be hard to top, so IQ may have to change things up a bit sound wise to keep us all intersted once again.

:)

^ Indeed, the curent line-up is superb, Neil Durant being an excellent keyboard player and an IQ fan himself for more than 25 years. He actually ran the very first on-line mailing list for IQ, 'It All Posts Here' in the early 90's before the Internet really took off and the IQ website started, and of course played with two other very fine bands in Sphere³ and Grey Lady Down.

Very very freakin cool. Didn't know that. Neil Durant is an artist I'm a little unfamiliar with. Anyway, very nice to know.
Thank you.

That Sphere3 album is a real gem ( and still not on PA for some reason). I saw them play live about 10-12 years ago at a festival that included Martin Orford's solo band and The Flower Kings were headlining. Someone might remind me where it was as I've forgottenLOL

It was on a Saturday evening, the fourth of August 2001, the day before my 46th birthday, at the three-day Whitchurch Music Festival, which ran from Friday to Sunday, and also included more wonderful bands, such as Landmarq, Primitive Instinct, Grey Lady Down & World Turtle. Approve
Regarding the absence of Sphere³ from progarchives, I'll deal with that little matter later on today... Wink

woowoo, yeah, color me excited, IQ always does great stuff.

Sadly, I don't see the classic line up reuniting for anything, there were some pretty harsh words between the Orford and Holmes/Nichols camp.  I don't see those three working together again.
I don't have an unnatural obsession with Disney Princesses, I have a five year old daughter and coping mechanisms.

You're probably right Tom, but time is a great healer, and there were some very difficult times for all of them just prior to Peter Nicholls' departure, which I think were put into perspective were when their dear friend Ledge passed away a few years later. Never say never, eh? Strange things happen on this planet of ours... LOL

'will sound like IQ' (Pete Nicholls)

phew that's a reliefSmile

the annual Xmas gig in London is later than normal (21st rather than around the second wekk in Dec that is normal). That may well be better for me. Its a long time since I saw IQ live. Would be just after Andy Edwards replaced Cookie probably 2006 I guess.

Gotta love that dam horses mouth!!!

^^^ thank you Yami!!! Everything sounds like its in full propulsion.

As Dream Theater, Fates Warning and even Queensryche (minus Tate) have all released very decent albums, I really can't imagine my Neo Prog Heros letting me down at all. I have full confidence that IQ will release the best album of 2014 if it does come out then? We shall see. Boy....progressive music is in great shape in general. This year has been so great (2013) and I think 2014 will be the same. Prog on!

^ wow. You can't really ask for much more than that. I am honestly thinking about flying to the U.K to watch the show.

Man. So the box set includes a ticket to the show or is it a commemorative stub?
Boy. This boxset really works out if you live in the UK. Lol
