Half Notes: Memories Of Machines – Warm Winter (2011)
Wilson is on here as well as Peter Hammill (Van der Graf Generator), and Robert Fripp supplies the rich electronic backwash on “Lost and Found in the Digital World” but none of this is enough to give the album those truly memorable moments.

Peter Hammill, defending, said: “He was in the store to get some shopping, and bought £18 worth of goods. “He has no idea why he took £3 worth of items when he had enough money to pay for them.” Chairman of the bench, Tony Brown, said: “This was a ...

What is the Progressive Rock of the 21st century? Which groups or solo artists do it? by bluesbends Q: When I was younger there were some great bands playing what we called "Progressive Rock" (or Prog Rock). Bands like King Crimson, Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull and Gentle Giant played an intelligent kind of rock, breaking boundaries and making music to listen to - not just something to move your feet to. My question: What is today's Prog Rock? I know that some of the groups in the list above (or at least band members) still perform today - but Prog Rock created by young groups, and was a breakthrough - so don't tell me "listen to Peter Hammill" - I do, but he's not new, and I'm looking for new stuff - what's happening today. A few years ago I thought the answer was Grunge, but I guess it's just that I like grunge (prog rock wasn't too heavy on the guitar). What do you think? Which music moves the mind, not the feet? Please state not only genre - but also leading groups in it. Phew.. this was long. Hope I didn't bore you. Waiting anxiously for your answers.

A: Progressive is still around. Look at bands such as Opeth, Mastodon, Dream Theater and Ihsahn for example.

Progressive rock 'battle of the bands', part 2 (for prog veterans)? by Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man Q: If you answered the first one, then you'd know the details already. Counting my own votes, the winners are: Modern rock - Spock's Beard Canterbury scene - Hatfield and the North Eclectic prog - Peter Hammill Fusion - Al Di Meola Krautrock - Ash Ra Temple Neo-progressive - IQ Prog folk - Gryphon Space rock - Eloy Rock progressivo Italiano - Le Orme Symphonic progressive - Renaissance And...the next round: Modern progressive: Porcupine Tree vs. Dream Theater Canterbury scene: The Soft Machine vs. Caravan Eclectic prog: King Crimson vs. Van der Graaf Generator Jazz fusion: Traffic vs. Mahavishnu Orchestra Krautrock: Can vs. Amon Duul II Neo-progressive: Marillion vs. Arena Prog folk: Jethro Tull vs. The Strawbs Space rock: Gong vs. Pink Floyd Rock progressivo Italiano: Premiata Forneria Marconi vs. Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso Symphonic progressive: Yes vs. Genesis

A: Aw, I missed the first one :( Oh well, my answers would have been pretty similar to the winners anyway, except for Focus over Renaissance. Lots of these could go either way, but right now... Dream Theater Caravan King Crimson Mahavishnu Orchestra Can Marillion Jethro Tull Pink Floyd PFM Yes

Is World Record the most underrated album in Van der Graaf Generator's oeuvre, or what? by Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man Q: Of course, there isn't a single VDGG album that I wouldn't give a perfect rating (besides maybe The Quiet Zone/The Pleasure Dome, but...that was by Van der Graaf, not Van der Graaf Generator. There's a slight difference), but World Record, more-so than all their others, besides maybe the Aerosol Grey Machine, seems to get a lot of flack. I think "Meurglys III" is one of the best epics Peter Hammill's ever written, and "Wondering" could've easily been a gratifying hit single. What do you think? BQ: Favorite VDGG album? BQ2: Favorite pH solo album? BQ3: Favorite VDGG song? BQ4: Favorite pH solo song?

A: I agree somewhat, I think I rank it a bit higher than Aerosol... yeah it is no masterpiece but it's a solid album, definitely underrated. Meurglys III is a good and non-traditional epic, I like the sort of "dub" part at the end. BQ: Godbluff BQ2: The Future Now BQ3: House With No Door BQ4: This is really much harder... I'll just go with Breakthrough from "Sitting Targets" (1981) right now as it came to mind, he has a lot of great work.

Are there any rock lyricists whose lyrics you can read as if they were poetry? by Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man Q: I'd say Peter Hammill is probably the best example of this. In addition to arguably being rock's best vocalist, he's also indefinitely its best lyricist. At least to me he is. Also, explain your answers, and give a few examples, if you would be so kind. BQ: Worst rock lyricists? BQ2: Will you people ever stop using the word 'pretentious'? BQ3: I like Fish. He's a good lyricist, too. I actually met somebody a few months ago that knows who Fish is...she's 18. Impressive, if I say so myself. Has this ever happened to you (that is, you met somebody that knows an obscure rock musician that you love)?

A: ..aside from the obvious Jim Morrison, Bob Dylan, The Beatles (and even David Bowie, to an extent), I think that Jefferson Airplane and The Kinks and XTC have poetic lyrics. Jefferson Airplane: "Gone swirling tears came she went today; Down Fallen years go by, No place in learning how to cry; I went astray; Understanding is a virtue, hard to come by You can teach me how to love If you'll only try; So please! Don't give up so soon. " The Kinks: "Arm in arm we sang our patriotic songs of love and sentiment. Tears of joy to hide the sorrow, New tomorrows till we meet again, With a new world to build we'll say auf weidersein. What did they do for us? What did it prove to us? As we stand beside the silent grave The unknown soldier can't be saved." XTC: "I am the audience There's no doubt, no consequence I could make the morning papers If I use my capers Let's be the Audience I might lose my patience Polite applause excepted To the ones selected, as the audience..." and I'm not doing them for Morrison, Dylan, Beatles, or Bowie, 'cause..well, I'm sure you know some examples of their lyricism..even if some of it is arguably overrated. (*waits to be shot*) Anyway, I say Jefferson Airplane because while they kind of revolve around love songs, they write them better than lots of others do. Er, The Kinks because they have such great, sad, somewhat dark lyrics, and on the same hand they manage the brighter more mainstream ones. XTC because..I think lots of their stuff is genius. And..I'm not sure. They speak to me? I think this is the problem with choosing the best songwriter; you might lean towards people you relate to more than people with great skill. Or I might, anyway. This is, of course, all my *opinion*, so before anyone kills me..yeah. BA: To me, Kiss. um, I'm not quite sure who in the band writes their lyrics. BA2: Regarding music, I don't..I just don't see HOW it can be pretentious. I mean, it's a person's manifestation of their creativity, right? But..maybe I'm slow. :/. BA3:Cool. :D. And..um..there's this one guy who knows and loves the New York Dolls, but as he's the one who introduced them to me..I don't think it counts. That, and they're not..super duper obscure. Oh! And my English teacher knows who the Whores of Babylon are. That was cool.

What Are You're Favorite Songs Referring to SUMMER !!? by ~Elizabeth~ Q: C'mong Folks - There are a TON fo these :)) Please IGNORE the Rest of my "Compulsive Drivel" LOL :)) ..,and Go Straight to Answers !! --------------- 2 of my Favorites are - 1. "We Bring the Summer With Us" - by Horslips 2. "Summer Song in the Autumn" by Peter Hammill LYRICS to "Summer Song" -- Summer song in the autumn, for you didn't catch the colour of the falling leaves. So many words have been spoken which you didn't understand and so couldn't believe. And the song that you're humming is yesterday's tune - someone who you love is leaving you. You walked in sunshine by the sea with gulls crying overhead but now the skies are cloudy, and the love you had is dead. And the water recedes from the farthest dunes - someone who you loved is leaving you. You remember the happiness you had as you laughed along in the sun but now your eyes are coming dull, there's a numbness on your tongue.... . . You look out at the water which is calling you over the wind, then you throw aside your handbag and slowly walk right in. And tomorrow you'll be in yesterday's news: someone who you loved has left you. . . Awesome !! Remember - They DO NOT Have to have the World SUMMER in the Title :) . . Thanks for the Link, "Silver *" :) ...and whay are people Crashing-Down on "kasia27monkey" ?? What did she do to you - Her answers are Fine !! . . "Summertime" is so Blissful !! I also love Joplin's verstion :) Also - did Mongo Jerry do a song about the Summertime ?? . . Hey, thanks for the Links, Guys :) .

A: 'Boys of Summer' ~ Don Henley 'Here Comes the Sun' ~ The Beatles 'Summertime' ~ Billie Holiday {George Gershwin} 'Summertime' ~ Renee Olstead http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=nE-fFDxKbPw 'Summer in the City' ~ The Lovin' Spoonful 'In the Summertime' ~ Mungo Jerry 'Summer Breeze' ~ Type O Negative {cover} 'Summertime Blues' ~ Eddie Cochran 'Albatross' ~ Fleetwood Mac {reminds me of the ocean} And, for me, the album that always makes me think of Summer :~ Fleetwood Mac ~ "Rumours"

Roxy Music fans...what do you think of these guys...'Random Hold' ? by Smiley Q: Random Hold were a cool UK band that existed in the late 70's-early 80's. They sort of had one foot stuck in 70s progressive rock, and the other foot in the late 70s new wave thing I guess... The prog connection here is of course bassist 'Bill MacCormick', who had played with the Canterbury style prog band 'Quiet Sun', as well as with 'Phil Manzanera's '801' of Roxy Music fame. Bills solid bass lines really give this band a great sound. Van der Graff Generator' frontman Peter Hammill produced their first album, 'The View From Here' in 1980. The vocalist name is Random Hold, and at times he reminds me of slightly more masculine Brian Eno, Lol... I thought I'd share this band with you guys, and figured fans of Roxy Music might enjoy them, as the influence is apparent. What are thoughts...do you like them? Etceteraville: http://www.imeem.com/people/iWsurYO/music/PjhaK6J6/random_hold_etceteraville/ What Happened: http://www.imeem.com/people/iWsurYO/music/G1j9Xm_F/random_hold_what_happened/ Montgomery Clift: http://www.imeem.com/people/iWsurYO/music/QEnKXUVt/random_hold_montgomery_clift/ Central Reservation: http://www.imeem.com/people/iWsurYO/music/MucoaCwe/random_hold_central_reservation/ Meat: http://www.imeem.com/people/iWsurYO/music/UckPKx-f/random_hold_meat/ The Ballad: http://www.imeem.com/people/iWsurYO/music/DxN1WAAr/random_hold_the_ballad/ Avalanche: http://www.imeem.com/people/iWsurYO/music/N3S6B2ky/random_hold_avalanche/ Hey SKY...glad you liked them. I was thinking of mentioning David Rhodes, David Ferguson, and Pete Phipps...but I'm not writing a bio...Lol...not quite anyways :) David V - Thanks! As you know, one of the best things about this section is being able to share music with one another...and I've always loved doing that! :)

A: Hey Smiley, Cool band! The tunes and production are right in pocket with the era. I've got this thing for wanting to know about bands' histories and stuff so I had to go read up on them. Their story is really quite interesting. You know, the early years, how they got signed, recording 'Etceteraville' in Ringo's Startling Studios (which was built in the same room where Lennon wrote Imagine), the "Gabriel" connection and how well R.H. was treated by Peter while touring with him and finally their breakup and demise. I also find it amusing that you left out the name "David Rhodes" within the text of your question. (: Perty cool stuff. edit: WHAT....no bio? pffffft! - rolls eyes, throws computer down flight of stairs, calls Bono - LOL.....(:

Progressive rock 'battle of the bands', part 3 (for prog veterans)? by Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man Q: Winners of the previous rounds: (including my votes) Modern rock - Dream Theater Canterbury scene - Caravan Eclectic prog - King Crimson Jazz fusion - Mahavishnu Orchestra Krautrock - Can Neo-progressive - Marillion Prog folk - Jethro Tull Space rock - Pink Floyd Rock progressivo Italiano - Premiata Forneria Marconi Symphonic prog - Genesis Alright, then, let's compare the winners, now. Modern progressive: Spock's Beard vs. Dream Theater Canterbury scene - Hatfield and the North vs. Caravan Eclectic prog: Peter Hammill vs. King Crimson Fusion: Al De Meola vs. Mahavishnu Orchestra Krautrock - Ash Ra Temple vs. Can Neo-progressive: Marillion vs. IQ Prog-folk: Gryphon vs. Jethro Tull Space rock: Eloy vs. Pink Floyd Rock progressivo Italiano - Le Orme vs. Premiata Forneria Marconi Symphonic progressive - Renaissance vs. Genesis Waldo Waldo Waldo: Perhaps you didn't notice, but this is the third part....

A: Dream Theater Caravan King Crimson Al De Meola Can Marillion Gryphon Eloy Premiata Forneria Marconi Genesis

Progressive rock 'battle of the bands', if you will (for prog veterans)? by Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man Q: I tried this in the past, but nobody seemed to read the description and just scolded me for choosing lesser known artists. Let's hope that isn't the case this time. Anyway, as with most other battle of the bands type contests, there will be three rounds. The first one will contain more obscure bands, and the second one will have the classics. Then, the winner of each comparison (in the first one) will be paired with the winners from the second one, and we'll find out what prog bands the members of R&P like the most. Completely pointless, I know, but fun to answer if you know the bands. Maybe this was the wrong time to do it, but oh well. The first 10: Modern progressive: Spock's Beard vs. Transatlantic Canterbury scene: Hatfield and the North vs. Robert Wyatt Eclectic prog: Yezda Urfa vs. Peter Hammill solo Jazz fusion: Al Di Meola vs. Jean-Luc Ponty Krautrock: Ash Ra Temple vs. Popol Vuh Neo-progressive: Pendragon vs. IQ Prog folk: Los Jaivas vs. Gryphon Space rock: Eloy vs. Nektar Rock Progressivo Italiano: Le Orme vs. Museo Rosenbach Symphonic progressive: Focus vs. Renaissance Again, only for prog VETERANS.

A: Modern progressive: Spock's Beard Canterbury scene: Hatfield and the North Eclectic prog: Yezda Urfa Jazz fusion: Al Di Meola Krautrock: Popol Vuh Neo-progressive: Pendragon Prog folk: Gryphon Space rock: Nektar Rock Progressivo Italiano: Museo Rosenbach (it's all about 'Zarathustra') Symphonic progressive: Renaissance

A: Porcupine Tree is the modern day Floyd imo. **Not sure if i'm answering your question correctly, but I feel they are the best prog rock to come along in a while.

MOJO magazine's 'The roots of Punk' (Top 50 songs)? by The Man Whose Head Expanded Q: In MOJO magazine last month, they compiled a list of the top 50 most inspirational tracks from 1970-1976 which led the way for the Punk revolution. 1970 MC5 - Looking at you Gong - National Anthem Edgar Broughton Band - Out Demons Out The Stooges - T.V.

It's the only music magazine I read on a regular basis, I always seem to find some new great band I never knew existed from each issue. Do you read any music magazines at all? If so, which? BQ2: Favourite song from the above list? BQ3: Favourite Punk band? Just noticed that there's only 49 songs on this list, I forgot to add Jocko Homo by Devo from 1975.

A: It's pretty cool ! I'm actually surprised to see a corporate magazine come up with a damn good list. *cough* Rolling Stone *cough*. I don't know every band from that list though - Edgar Broughton Band , Electric Eel , Debris ,for example. But geez , they've included krautrock in there so it gets my respect. I mean , Heldon? I've never seen Heldon in any lists whatsoever until now. I'd add the VU but I see they've got Lou in there so... possibly The Who too. BA : Nah they don't have it here. I sometimes pop in on NME's website to check out their lists but that's about it. BA2 : Amon Duul II - Archangels Thunderbird BA3 : The old clichè... the Sex Pistols. I think I love The Buzzcocks as much as them too.

Who's Your "lesser-known" Great Vocalist - and Did Anyone Know About This Guy? by ~Elizabeth~ Q: . My favorite rock vocalist will always be Burton Cummings of The Guess Who But, is anyone familiar with this "lesser-know" vocalist? "Hammill's voice Many consider Hammill's dramatic voice to be the most distinctive element of his music. As a former Jesuit chorister, his delivery is invariably middle class English (rather than Americanised), and ranges in tone from peacefully celestial to screaming rants (which are nevertheless highly controlled). Singing in registers from baritone to high falsetto, he growls, croons, shrieks and shouts in ways that have drawn comparison with the guitar playing of Jimi Hendrix." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Hammill#Hammill.27s_voice -------------- Who's Your Favorite "lesser-known" Vocalist ?? , . I miss Robert Palmer, too, Silver * My favorite albums by him are still his Classic - "Sneakin' Sally Through The Alley" an amazing debut; and "Pressure Drop" . I just received a "depressing" email. Apparently, I don't act feminine enough to pass as female - Despite the earlier advice I liked about "Get up an Fight" - I've tossin' in the towel - Maybe I've been avoiding that I may be the Real problem, not my Husband. sorry but I have to put this to a Vote. . Oh, shoot!! Please disregard the above comment - It was meant for m Other Q under ther Marriage section. This is embarrassing - but I am NOT putting this Q to a Vote - so scratch that,. God -I'm an idiot LOL ,

A: I'm not sure about 'lesser-known', but for 'greatly-overlooked' :~ The late and much missed Robert Palmer :)

Another Guitar (Model) to Identify? by No Freedom whilst Tyranny Reigns Q: : In this picture of Peter Hammill from 1977 - it looks like he has a Gretsch in the window-sill, but I am unable to identify the Model - (I DO know that it is NOT a Les Paul Black Beauty). Sorry that the Guitar is "sideways" - but does anyone think they know the Model? http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/9a/Peter_Hammill_Over.jpg Thank you :-) :

A: Seems it's this Guild. http://www.vandergraafgenerator.co.uk/pawnhearts/ph_guitar_p2.jpg (& this time i did my own research) :) This was a simple Google search, man since it was tough to see from a side view.

Greatest progressive rock song lyricists? by Deadpool Q: 1. Peter Gabriel 2. Roger Waters 3. Ian Anderson 4. Peter Sinfield 5. Fish 6. Jon Anderson 7. Peter Hammill 8. Tony Banks 9. Greg Lake 10. Neil Peart Who else?

A: 1:Robert Plant 2:Ian Gillan 3:Geezer Butler

Genesis fans: Do you think Genesis would be as recognized today if they'd broken up when Steve Hackett left? by Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man Q: BQ: Dancing with the Moonlit Knight or Supper's Ready? BQ2: Selling England by the Pound or the Lamb Lies Down On Broadway? BQ3: Who do you think is a better lyricist? Peter Hammill or Peter Gabriel?

A: . Of course not !! Though the band finally "broke-even," financially, with the sales on "Trick" -- they would not see massive success until my least favorite album, "Abacab" -- and "Invisible Touch" is probably what put them in the Hall of Fame. I DO like all of their albums, but the Classics, will always be (to me), the "Hackett-period" Hey, you know what I was thinkin' ?? How come no one ever mentions what a technically brilliant Bass Player, Mike Rutherford was ?? ...and even his switch to Guitar, was quite competent(??) - dontcha think ? .

Peter Gabriel or Peter Hammill? by 42 Q: Make your selection. Sure, Snowball, why not. :)

A: Hammill, I think. Especially "Patience"

Do you think Peter Hammill is the most introspective lyricist in rock history? by Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man Q: 4th cousin, actually.

A: Goddamn these philistines. Anyway, I would say there is a very good chance he is. He is certainly one of my favorite lyricists ever. Another candidate is Kevin Gilbert, who I think you might like. He was influenced by Gabriel and Hammill to a large degree I think. His albums "Thud" and "The Shaming of the True" are a couple of my favorite lyrical albums of all time, great musically too.

Is it just me, or does Fish sound more like Robert Wyatt than Peter Gabriel or Peter Hammill? by Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man Q: BQ: Favorite Marillion song? BQ2: Favorite Robert Wyatt album? BQ3: Peter Hammill or Peter Gabriel (as a songwriter)?

A: I've never gotten that, however yeah he is too high pitched and Scottish to "sound like" either Gabriel or Hammill, but I can hear influences from both of them no doubt. BQ: Heart of Lothian BQ2: Rock Bottom. As far as albums he's ever been on, "Third" - Soft Machine BQ3: That is near impossible for me to answer. They both do different things better than the other. Gabriel has more consistently resonant emotionality to his music but Hammill is better with describing things with amazing detail and cutting wit. It depends on my mood, I'll go with Gabriel right now.
