But this German band will continue to make music with a new vocalist - Dieter Reusch.


Speaking of Philip Griffiths, I wonder, what your opinion about Poor Genetic Material is, Marygold. Got some of their albums, and like them quite a bit, especially the "Seasons" - albums.

Ah, I was wondering if someone was going to mention PGM after the part about Philip Griffiths leaving Alias Eye. wink

The only PGM album I've got is Island Noises, but it has some pretty cool stuff on it -- the opener "Roarers" is very cool. Griffiths' voice reminds me of Michael Sadler from Saga, which is a compliment as far as I'm concerned.

I've wondered if I should delve deeper into their back catalog.

Yes, you should. I have mentioned the "Seasons" albums. Them are:

Spring Tidings
Summerland
Leap Into Fall
and
Winter`s Edge.

Very beautiful and harmonic music.

Hey, nice to see us mentioned here.
And by the way: Phil Griffiths has left Alias Eye, but he does continue with Poor Genetic Material. He is in fact just recording vocals for our new album, which will also feature his father Martin Griffiths (who some of you might know as the singer of seventies prog band Beggars Opera).

As well as the current band members (6) the tour will feature Nad Sylvan (from the Agents of Mercy) on lead vocals for some of the songs. The expected length of the set will be 2 hrs + and will comprise of numbers taken from the 2CD set, as well as songs played in his current set such as Firth of Fifth and Watcher of the Skies.

This heartwarming video means so much more now that Peter's Dad passed away last Friday. He was 100 years old.

Billy Sherwood, who was a member of Yes in the 90's, is the guy behind two albums released this year which may well be of interest to some of you.

The first is called The Prog Collective. These are the tracks (and some of the musicians involved):

The Prog Collective

1. The Laws of Nature (Jerry Goodman, John Wetton, Tony Levin)
2. Over Again (Geoff Downes, Richard Page)
3. The Technical Divide (Alan Parson, Chris Squire, Gary Green)
4. Social Circles (Annie Haslam, Peter Banks)
5. Buried Beneath (Billy Sherwood, Larry Fast, Steve Hillage)
6. Following the Signs (John Wesley, Tony Kaye)
7. Check Point Karma (Colin Moulding, Rick Wakeman)

The second is The Fusion Syndicate. Again, the track listing:

The Fusion Syndicate

1. Random Acts Of Science (Rick Wakeman, Jerry Goodman, Nik Turner, Jimmy Haslip)
2. Stone Cold Infusion (Steve Stevens, Jordan Rudess, Mel Collins, Colin Edwin, Billy Cobham)
3. Molecular Breakdown (Jay Beckenstein, Billy Sheehan, Gavin Harrison, David Sancious)
4. Particle Accelerations (Larry Coryell, Derek Sherinian, Eric Marienthal, Chester Thompson)
5. At The Edge Of The Middle (Steve Morse, Jim Beard, Randy Brecker, Percy Jones)
6. Atom Smashing (John Etheridge, Tony Kaye, Chad Wackerman)
7. In The Spirit Of… (Steve Hillage, Scott Kinsey, Theo Travis, Justin Chancellor, Asaf Sirkis)

At present, both albums can be listened to in full at Progstreaming.
