CalProg on Saturday (tomorrow) www.calprog.com It's going to be a great day of American and German progressive rock music.

I'm actually going to finally get to meet and spend some time with Nov, our resident Phantom band member, and the man who introduced me to The Flower Kings, Spock's Beard, Karmakanic, The Tangent, and much more, for which I'm forever grateful wink

The Lineup will be -

Sylvan - From 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. http://www.calprog.com/Sounds/SylvanAudioSample.mp3

DINNER BREAK from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. - Nov, my wife and I will head to The Firehouse Grill for some grub and brew.

There will be tables upon tables loaded with progressive rock CDs for sale, represented by independent retailers, as well as Syn-Phonic Records and ProgRock Records

I have been looking forward to this day for months, and now it's finally here!

I see Australian Pink Floyd is coming to within 50 miles of me in November. But why do they have to be playing on a Wednesday night? angry They're going to play the entire "The Wall" gig just as Floyd performed it, plus various Floyd tunes after the set. Wish I could go. I did get to see The Wall performed by Floyd, and it was fantastic!

News Release -
Chas Cole for CMP Entertainment in association with CAA presents, for the first time in over 25 Years, Pink Floyd`s legendary rock opera THE WALL live in concert and in its entirety performed by The Australian Pink Floyd Show.. This is the World Premiere of an amazing new stage production including animation, lasers & inflatables PLUS a very special `greatest hits` encore.
.
To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the release of Pink Floyd's seminal 1979 classic rock opera, THE WALL , the live phenomenon that is, The Australian Pink Floyd Show, will tour North American venues this fall, with their jaw-dropping World Premiere of Pink Floyd`s legendary, rock opera, The Wall .. This will be a brand-new performance of the complete album in its majestic entirety.. Every amazing musical piece will be played note-for-note!
.
The work has not been performed live on this scale for over 25 years, not since Pink Floyd toured it themselves. But now it is back, in all its glory, performed by the band that the London Daily Mail says, "do Floyd better than Floyd do themselves."
..
The meticulous attention to detail of the musicianship - every facet of Floyd's The Wall will be reproduced note for note, sound for sound by the fastidiously talented musicians - is what ultimately has kept the fans coming back for more.. Floyd's frontman, David Gilmour, has given the show his own glowing endorsement ("They really are very, very good indeed").. Plus, every night the show will conclude with a special Pink Floyd `Greatest Hits` encore.

A short note or two on the Musical Box gig last night.

Firstly it was great to meet up with Demo Man again and to finally meet Nikki, John and Alibrat. Would have liked a bit more time to chat with them before and after the gig but the band came on around 8pm.

Set list was as follows:

Dance on a Volcano
Squonk
Robbery, Assault and Battery
Entangled
Los Endos
Lamb Lies down on Broadway
Fly on the Windscreen/Broadway Melody of 74
Carpet Crawlers
It/Watcher of the Skies (abridged)
Suppers Ready
Cinema Show
I Know what I like
Firth of Fifth
White Mountain

Instrumentally this band were amazing and just confirmed just how bad things got (IMHO) after Duke and the band's journey towards pop rock. Highlights were Los Endos, Cinema Show, White Mountain and Squonk. Suppers Ready was wonderful instrumentally but the lead vocalist or the guys on the mixing board missed the big intro to one or two parts.

Now onto the vocalist. Personally, I never heard the previous singer who did the PG material. The new guy is a wonderful drummer but on many of the songs I did not hear any resemblance to Phil - while on others he did appear to sound like him. I love Carpet Crawlers but it did not work for me vocally and neither did Robbery, Assault........ Cinema Show was slightly better vocally and the whole song was saved by the superb musicianship.

The talking between the songs saw a bit of nervousness with the guys. The lead singer lost the place a few times but I put that down to nerves and they will get better as they play more venues.

In summary, wonderful musicianship with the keyboard player on fire, bass work was also excellent and the Hackett tones were there although not as good as Steve (how could it). For me, the vocals were the weak point. The guy does have a decent voice but if you are going to be a tribute band then surely you have to sound like the person and particularly when it costs a fair bit for a ticket too. A touch picky perhaps but I know that in general each of us had some criticism to make.

Again, great to meet up with forumees which very nice indeed. Let' s meet earlier next time and have a bit more chat.

Saw Aimee Mann in Glasgow last night and Glen Campbell a couple of weeks ago - superb shows, totally different styles!

Next gig will hopefully be Uriah Heep next month.
