Wow, Hasse and Musical Companion play live on YouTube - great stuff - I'm loving the new album!

If you're reading this, Jim Harrel, try booking them for CalProg 2011 grin

It's a great album, isn't it Dave? I've played it loads and love it. One of my favourites out of the solo material the band members have produced.
I rate it up there with Roine's albums Hydrophonia and The Flower King, Tomas's Sonic Boulevard and An Ordinary Night In My Ordinary Life and Karmakanic's Wheel Of Life.
All superb albums and future classics, imo of course. wink

Been playing Future Past again this past couple of days.
Really, imo it's a contender for one of the best albums of last year.
I really hope, on the next TFK album, Hasse gets a chance to bring some more of his songs to the table. He's written some excellent ones before - Magic Pie is one of my favourite TFK songs full stop - and, on the basis of the material he's put out on Future Past, he's capable of holding his own with anyone. wink

This is also true Dave. I have both their albums and love the two of them. I hope there will be a third. I know they were working on one last year. I've heard no more about it though... sad

Good to see prog well represented in old fashioned magazines again. Wouldn't it be wonderful if the powers that be started making posters available again too, like in the old days,when you could go in shops like Woolies and browse the posters on display?
It would be great to see full size colour posters of bands like TFK, Porcupine Tree, IQ, Pendragon and the rest. smiley

Played Eggs & Dogs by Tomas Bodin last night. Still impressed with this, probably my third favourite Bodin album. Good stuff! wink

Trying to find a cheaper option than is available on Amazon.co.uk.

The reviews on progarchives.com are very encouraging. A new singer too. Norwegian prog rules, ok?!
