The new issue of Prog dons its sunglasses, grabs a beer and prepares for a summer season of progtastic dazzlement, kicking off with the High Voltage Festival – and it’s guest edited by Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson!
Big Big Train
It’s a real melting pot this week, with top-notch reissues from Detective, Triumph, Thor and Big Big Train; the comeback album from Stone Temple Pilots; a power-packed curiosity from White Trash UK; and a heap of weirdness from Fen, Ufomammut, Parade and Ougenweide!
This week, we traverse the globe to give y’all a bit of everything: a portion of Pink Floyd-style prog, a slice of late-60s psychedelic rock’n’roll, a band who’re labelling themselves ‘the new Dream Theater’, a forgotten release from the NWOBHM era… plus an amusing offering from possibly the craziest tribute band of all time.
They don’t come much more British than Bournemouth prog rockers Big Big Train. Now nearly 20 years old, they’re about to release their sixth album. And the title track – all 23 minutes of it – is the newest Track Of The Day. Click here for previous Tracks Of The Day.
