Ampledeed: New prog/Canterbury group.
(This is actually a band that I am in :)) However, we have been told before that double-G influences are evident.

Agree - track 2 'Words And Miracles' blew me away with Gary Green and the great GG arrangement. Great album, but not GG styling overall.

Gilbert did some other GG-influenced stuff as well.

Primus have a noticeable modern twist on GG's silly nature

Not a direct influence, but I think it's pretty visible.

The occasional Spock's Beard track and even the band Haken can show some strong GG influences in their arrangements.

If this translates as "I never liked Gentle Giant much,  but I love echolyn despite the huge influence GG has had upon them," I would definitely agree.

I know all these bands you mention with exception of :Stereokimono and Half Past Four.

None of these bands sound like Gentle Giant (unless by Gentle Giant you SIMPLY mean it sounds complex.)


Well... okay, I seem to recall Octohpera-Bons Amigos DOES, but a bettewr choice from Brazil would be the already mentioned (2 lps ) by T. Baldio.


From Canada there was only one band sounding like GG : the Quebec band,  Etcetera with their sole self-titled lp.
