Progressive Biography

I was born on september 26th 1973.

Some might say the only thing i can do is talk about myself. So, i won't.
The only thing you really need to know is that my concern in music is as much important as breathing and takes a major part in my life.

I was first introduced to progressive rock while i listened to "Foxtrot" on my first pick up. It was my first seventies Genesis experience (i got introduced to them through "Invisible Touch", my curiosity did the rest), so i didn't know what to expect. To be completely immerged by the music, i was lying on the ground, next to my speakers. And then... "Watcher of the Skies"... Mellotron all the way. I was hooked. For life.

About 4000 cds, but progressive music is just a part of it, though big.
Lately i became a totally japanese papersleeve maniac, so it's a big hole in my budget.
But anyway, i would like to say that quantity doesn't matter...

My favourite progressive bands/artists are (but it's difficult and subject to change) :

Gentle Giant
King Crimson
National Health
Soft Machine
Van Der Graaf Generator
Weather Report
Frank Zappa

My favourite progressive albums include (but it's even more difficult and subject to change) :

"Crisis in Clay" by 5 uu's
"Discipline" by King Crimson
"Disco Volante" by Mr.Bungle
"Epilog" by Anglagard
"Godbluff" by Van Der Graaf Generator
"Köhntarkösz" by Magma
"The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" by Genesis
"Leg End" by Henry Cow
"Picchio dal Pozzo" by Picchio dal Pozzo
"Ys" by Il Balletto di Bronzo
