Great! I suggest you put them under the same sub-genre: RIO/Avant Prog.

Hm.. come to think of it, they're not extremely proggy, I mean they have odd instrumentation and soundscapes once in a while, but they're very new wave to me.  They're about as prog as Bowie.

Heh, I really think they should both be added, having a considerable amount of prog material, but that's to be discussed.

hm... listened to Hiter Was A Vegetarian and i honestly dont see where the prog is. It was pretty cool how they used the spacey organs to mimic songs like In A Gadda Da Vida.

Ha ha that moment when I heard mockery of In a gadda da vida, I jumped off my chair laughing to tears!

Do not expect any conventional prog sounds, they are avantgarde, not really classifiable...

They are prog, RIO/Avant Prog I'd say.
