Anyway, ahem!...forgive me father for I have sinned...this is my first confession in the church of TFK for some time...my head has been turned by all those Polish types... grin



No need to apologise, dear boy, 'those Polish types', along with 'those Swedish types' are helping not only to keep prog alive, but, indeed,are helping it to flourish.
Time we Brits had some new bands coming up to challenge them, to be honest. rolleyes

...and if you must confess, then confess in the Church Of Your Heart. That's the most apt way for a flowerhead, don't you think? cheesy

Talking of whom......

Ed Unitsky has just completed the Artwork for Tomas Bodin - "Cinematograaf"
Tomas Bodin is releasing his sixth solo album "Cinematograaf", since 1996. He is known primarily as the extraordinarily gifted keyboardist and composer for The Flower Kings. Tomas' first album was "An Ordinary Night In My Ordinary Life". The well received album was produced by Roine Stolt and released on Roine's label "Foxtrot Music". In 2002, Tomas created his second album, "Pinup Guru". He had wanted to create an Emerson, Lake, and Palmer quality for the album by keeping a trio format of keys, drums and bass throughout the album. A year later, "Sonic Boulevard" saw daylight, a semi-ambient/progressive album. It has afro-influences and one theme working as an id fix. His next album, "The Swedish Family", a Vintage Prog album was released. The music was in the tradtion of Swedish folk rock.

Two years later Tomas decided to release a "real" record. A bigger production with vocals, lyrics, a concept Rock Opera. The concept included 3 albums "I Am", "You Are", "He She It", was born. "I Am" was Tomas looking at himself in a sort of biographical way. "You Are", Tomas looking at You (the lyrics explain this further),"He She It", a story about love from different angles.

"Cinematograaf" is Tomas' sixth album a richly textured album with dynamic moods of power and softness. Its unique blend of instrumentals with classical and traditional styling along with stategic sound effects interlace to create a magical mix that will lead you to belief you are truly engaged at the "Cinematograaf". Track titles include "An Ocean In Between", "Spanish Ballerina in Love", and "Six, Six, Six".
A classically trained pianist, Tomas has also worked with "The Royal National Theather of Drama (Dramaten)", "Riksteatern", "Upsala Stadsteater" and has had a few acting roles in movies. Please visit Tomas' MySpace page.

Well, I never knew Tomas had done any acting in films. I presume they were Swedish films.
(Not that kind of Swedish film, for heaven's sake!) rolleyes
I wonder how he'd cope in the James Bond role.

ah swedish films!...now we're talking!...oh it's a salami grin

...anyway...ahem...

...sat here at my keyboard on a friday night after a long week at work and (more immediately) a bottle of Ernest & Julio's finest coursing through my bloodstream, I would just like to take this opportunity to say...

Right now, nothing would make me happier than the experience of a Flower Kings concert!

I suppose the ideal package would be a weekend of prog, with one band each day for three hours each.
Saturday would be Flower Kings day, with music from their whole catalogue dusted off and played, and guest appearances from old members, just to keep the crowd on their toes.
Sunday would be the five-man reunion Genesis gig, with music from Trespass onwards played, and, again, guest appearances from old band members.

Tickets would cost no more than 15 for the best seats, programmes would be 5 and souvenirs would abound, including exclusive T-shirts and specially recorded cds of new music, for gig goers only.

Now that might be something I'd be interested in going to see. Especially if the two gigs took place in Liverpool, for a change. wink

Glad to hear it Fraser wink

You could always pop over to Norway on Friday 3rd October:

THE FLOWER KINGS

03 Oct 2008, 19:00
TMV kaia 17, 7014 Trondheim., Trondheim, 7014
Cost : tba

THE FLOWERKINGS + support tba ZONE @ BLST , www.blaest.no www.zone-home.net.


Alternatively we'll have to wait until next Spring, I reckon.

Carl - next time they're over, you've really got to come and meet us all so that we can all experience the majesty of a TFK concert together wink

I wonder if TFK are available for weddings, and other functions? laugh

Yes, yes, I know, but imagine if they were.
What a way to celebrate something, by having your favourite band performing for you, right there in the room or hall.
Now that would be worth the money - unlike most weddings! cheesy

Managed to sneak in a Flower Kings related album today: Karmakanic - Entering The Spectra.
Hard to choose my favourite on it, but it's probably the title track, Entering The Spectra, with One Whole Half not far behind.
