I bought tickets for most of those 2011 shows after Arena finished.  I brought a not an insignificant amount of cash with and left with a pile of about a dozen tickets.  I need to get tickets for Credo, IOEarth, the festival & JPM next time.

By the way, who is Jan Paul Menel - facebook believes that he should be a friend.

It's Paul Menel, Rob - Jan is the month ;)

He was the singer with IQ for a bit after Pete Nicholls left in the later eighties. Made two or three albums with them - he has a more poppy approach than Pete.

Oops - well, I'm new at this.  I will get a ticket.  And, for sure, I'll like his singing much more than Pete Nicholls.

I wonder what happened to Gazpacho.

He was the singer with IQ for a bit after Pete Nicholls left in the later eighties. Made two or three albums with them - he has a more poppy approach than Pete.

Those two IQ albums (Nomzamo and Are You Sitting Comfortably) are the only two I like and have. Yes, much poppier but far more tuneful to my ear.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: Robert on November 17, 2010, 11:09:02 AM
I am with Jim on this - Nomzamo is the only IQ album I have. Just don't look at their hair on the inside cover.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: A James on November 17, 2010, 11:26:10 AM
I threw their hair away the moment I got the album home.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: Uncle Bulgaria on November 17, 2010, 11:29:20 AM
Nomzamo was the album I first discovered IQ with, and while I prefer later 'proggier' IQ, I still have a soft spot for the album.

If there is even half a chance that PLM will sing No Love Lost I will be there.

I always found Are You Sitting Comfortably went too far (for me) down the poppier route. It is my least favourite IQ album .


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: Ash on November 17, 2010, 08:00:55 PM
I only owned Nomzamo and Are you sitting comfortably?

Dame LOVES those two albums so he will probably go to this show. 


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: Simon on November 17, 2010, 11:18:07 PM
Along with Once Around The world by It Bites, Are You Sitting Comfortably was THE album that Freefall was listening to back when were were taking our first steps as prog musicians.

I remember all of us just melting at the really cool 'When will dreamtime come?' chord progression in the middle of Drive On.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: Uncle Bulgaria on November 18, 2010, 12:59:42 PM
Hurrah - finally got my Defence of the Realm tickets along with Tinyfish 2011 and Pallas.

Probably going to the Paul Menel one as well, just have to play Mme Cholet Nomzamo to discover if she will be accompanying me.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: Ash on November 18, 2010, 01:15:59 PM
Dame wants a Paul Menel ticket.  Thought he would.  He then played me his new single.  Jury is out on that one.  It wasn't unpleasant but couldn't decide if it sounded dated or not.  Certainly sounded like good IQ.  Certainly wasn't prog rock.  Or rock. 


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.

Post by: Twang on November 24, 2010, 05:12:29 PM
Now, I'm thinking......what's on my wish list for 2011 that I haven't got booked yet. Well. Crippled Black Pheonix is one, Haken want a show too, Hookah the Fuzz are amazing. Porcupine Tree/Blackfield, yes I'm dreaming. Rush dreaming again, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks, Ant & Chester Thompson. Phil's retired even my dreams have a spark of realism. Fish and the Marillion boys do perform well, anything they want to. David Gilmour,Roger Waters and a warm up for DT to break in a new drummer. I can dream, yes I can dream. Oh and Tinyfish to perform a full electric Tinyfish version of ELO's Concerto for a Rainy Day. ;D


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: A James on November 24, 2010, 05:15:47 PM
Blackfield may not be an outlandish thought...

Crippled Black Phoenix would be excellent.

I'd go for Crippled Black Phoenix.  Very good band indeed.

Post by: queens park pete on November 24, 2010, 07:57:09 PM
I notice Tinyfish will take the stage before a nation celebrating "the Wedding of Mass Distraction." Any chance of a royalty themed gig at the Peel? I won't say which band member ought to play the lovely Kate, or who has the ears for the Father -in- law.

Any chance of Big Big Train? Quidam (obviously not)?


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: RobH on November 24, 2010, 08:33:09 PM
I asked Twang about Quidamn a couple of years ago.  When I saw them Quidam in Holland a couple of years ago, I suggested the Peel to Bartek.  I'd LOVE to see this band in the UK - hell, I'd travel to Holland again to see them.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: queens park pete on November 24, 2010, 08:52:41 PM
Highlight of Summersend a couple of years back. They look to have an excellent DVD out but I haven't managed to find it on any non-Polish websites. They did a big tour in Poland this year, but I suspect anything other than a festival performance in UK would be financially disastrous, so I suspect it will be a trip to Holland for me too!



Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: RobH on November 24, 2010, 09:47:03 PM
I got mine from JustFromKicks - Germany is closer than Poland.  It is a very good DVD, recorded about a week after I saw them in Holland.

Maybe the Peel could offer a double bill for William's stag do. RPWL followed by a trip to the Blue Bar, over the road for a kebab and back to a dodgy B+B if still able to walk. Obviously Harry would not be allowed in in Nazi Regalia with a German band headlining :'(

Cool - would definitely come to a "script" show - the fates have conspired against me seeing it thus far.

Also Mme Cholet listened to Nomzamo and is coming to Paul Menel with me  - we'll pick up tickets when we come to the DotR gig on Friday week.

JUST ADDED! After what can only be described as a stunning set in November,THE TANGENT will return to The Peel on Sunday 22nd May. No support band as the band will play a full 2 hour set to include brand new material. Doors 6.30pm. This is a Sunday as the band will be returning from a European Festival. Early doors to allow people to get home at a sensible time, it is a school day on Monday after all.

We're both coming to see Paul Menel (I think I'll keep John Mitchell a surprise - it'll be funnier that way)

I'm also coming to the Script show on Feb 12th - I have given Mme Cholet until Monday to decide if she is also coming, as I want to get ticket(s) booked.

Post by: Twang on February 15, 2011, 05:47:36 PM
Hi all, ;D

It's been an exauhsting week that started in Jan and still hasn't finished, although I slept for a whole 9 hours last night. Which was nice, Anyway......www.houseofprogression.com has had it's facelift. Go and check it out, enjoy and join the mailing list. cheers. ;D I promise the only junk you'll get is from me about the gigs.

There is links to every bands sites simply by clicking on the name,oh lots of cool stuff.  ;D

A HUGE thanks to Mr Lee Elvey for doing a grand job, inbetween me going can we do this,this,this & oh this.

Hopefully see some of you for Mick Pointer's Script show this Sat.

Oh and over the next few months you'll notice a MAHUSIVE change in The Peel as the long awaited overhaul begins, whilst keeping open. It will look very different as we rebrand the venue. Don't panic the Live room will be pretty much unchanged, the middle bar and exterior will be the ....'Oh my God, that's so different'. Bit by bit you'll notice it.



Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: Trace on February 15, 2011, 05:58:15 PM
So now, after finally getting to the Peel for the first time for Pallas, I won't recognise the place next time I get there.
Wonderful.

Seriously, Best of luck. Gradually altering a functioning venue always seems to make it's own problems.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: Twang on February 15, 2011, 06:10:55 PM
Trace, lol I see your point, but from outside it looks tired, so we all want it to look fresher. We've got to take the venue a step fruther. (which means more soul selling lol!) I want to get bigger bands in genres other than Prog as well as Prog, so it means it's gotta look the part. We'll have a proper green room for artists downstairs which accsess to the stage.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: Simon on February 15, 2011, 07:23:39 PM
That's brilliant news sir. I'm glad that the place (and you) are moving up in the world.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: Trace on February 15, 2011, 11:03:25 PM
No offence meant Twang. I do indeed see your point.
It's just that i have been involved (luckily not too involved) in reworking venues that try to keep working, and it can be an absolute nightmare. However, the option of closing the place for 2 weeks is generally a no-no, so for a while there is quite a bit of inconvenience and the feeling that the gigs are being played in a building site.
Best of luck to you, and I look forward to a new venue (actually it was a new venue to me and it looked good, but it was dark, etc...)

It gives me the greatest pleasure to announce that MAIDEN UNITED have been confirmed for Wacken Fest, Europe's best and biggest Metal Fest. But you can see them first at The Peel Sat 9th May for only £7.00 advance!! In all their pure glory too!

OK it's not purely Prog but Piece of Mind is known as Iron Maiden's Prog album. When Damian Wilson and the boys do it it's like Led Zep do I.M. they've taken the Metal out and put the Melody back in. The album is a masterpiece!

I'm very chuffed to announce that IO EARTH's Sprcial guests will be THE WILD ARCHIVE http://www.facebook.com/TheWildArchive

They used to called Narration who played with The Pineapple Thief at H.O.P. Jem & John M love them after I forced my I-Pod upon them during a very drunken Friday evening in London. (Hic)

After getting what can only be described as an amazing sticksman the band still retain thier incredible songwriting skills & one of the best voices!!! They played a tester gig with the new line up end of Jan. The result was Jaw Dropping!!

Post by: RobH on March 15, 2011, 05:07:20 PM
Credo - I'm looking forward to seeing them again.  I think that there's another show the following week that tempted me as well.  There's the Mainden United thing which I'm going to more out of curiousity than expectation.

Pineapple Thief played at HoP last year supported by Narration.  I wasn't at all convinced by Narration then - a sort of Pineapple-y Thief band - and I don't find PT very interesting.  I'm happy to give them another go.

I'm looking forward to IOEarth.  Hopefully they can put on a good show.

Jolly Roger and the Bricklayers eh?  I'm sure it'll be great - and it better because I'm seeing it in Manchester. 

I saw the show when I was at uni (it cost £14 from memory).  A lot of the time they were playing behind the Wall - or they were saidf to be playing behind the wall.  Personally I reckon they switched on a recording and then all buggered off down to the pub leaving David Gilmour to play a couple of solos.

I thought that IOEarth played a great set - the best that I've seen them.  I guess it takes a while to sort out the live show, but they seemed much more at ease. 

The Wild Archive played well considering that they've only been around a few weeks.

THIS FRIDAY AT THE PEEL.

MARCH 25th HOUSE OF PROGRESSION PRESENTS HAKEN & TO-MERA

HAKEN are going to be massive, with Festivals booked up for both Europe and the U.S.they will play alongside Dream Theatre in the States this July.Their debut album Aquarius has not only had major media praise but was featured as many journalists album of the year. Joining them on this Double Bill,the symphonic Progressive Metal of the epic To-Mera. This show is a must for Prog Metal & Metal fans alike!

This is a very personal show for us. When Classic Rock presents Prog magazine appoached me to introduce to them young and exciting bands,I screamed about Haken.

I've watched them since their first steps, rehearsing in the Peel studios and quickly started to support them. I watched them grow from strength to strength knowing that this band could take on the heavyweights from both Europe & the U.S.

It's Ironic that it was a U.S. label that signed them after seeing the C.R.P.P article.

Come and find out what all the fuss is about! Tickets are only £7.00 advance and you'll be seeing a young band who are about to explode and they're from the U.K.!! Doors 7.30pm both bands performing full sets!

They're good, but not really that good. I think that it would help if one of them lost that hat and the rock-god attitude.
I bought (and do listen to) Aquarius but that's as far as I'd go. I'd like hear a second album and then see them again live.

Do the two bands share the same bassist?

Hi everyone,

I know I've been a bit quiet for a while. That is simply because I've been very busy. As you know we're rebranding the venue. Work has progressed on the outside well and now it's time to sort out the inside. It begins next week. This requires builders which will be fun. Talking of fun after they've done that, the real fun begins. There will be comfortable seating which will be lit, there will be art on the wall and ceiling which will be hand painted by an artists who has not only featured in Vogue Milan magazine but his work shifts for stupid amounts in Paris, New York & Milan.
There will be 2 to 3 major works from the entrance to the middle bar. Gone will be the pool table & game machines and in goes a DJ booth. On certain nights (not Prog) the venue will have various bands and the mid bar will have a DJ spinning similar music which enables us to have Rock, Indie, Pop Rock and cool yoof stuff whilst they do the live thang next door. The idea is to get people in other than gig goers. The Prog gigs will be Prog gigs lol.

I'm sorting out shows at the moment which is taking up a huge amount of time. Download & Sonisphere Fest warm ups are on the cards so if everything gets sorted we'll get massive bands warming up. I'm also working on a possible Teenage Cancer Trust show and that will mean someone HUGE. I'm keeping all my fingers crossed on that one.

It's going to take the Peel to the next level. Saturday is MAIDEN UNITED so hopefully see some of you here then.

I'm severely tempted to pop down for Matt and Credo (even if admittedly I'm not much of a fan of the latter yet). Probably just wishful thinking, as finances and time for uni work get in the way...

I need my fix of The Peel SOON! It's been too long!

Thanks for the thought, Bert, but it looks like it'll be cheaper for me to do the usual and go straight down on t'train. I don't think I'm brave enough to go for the Megabus option, and it's not even that much cheaper than the rails.

Just got to have a think about the finances now and see if it's actually do-able.

I hope everybody at the Peel enjoys Maiden United - Mr Wilson was really on form last weekend.

For those going to Credo in a fortnight's time, I think you'll enjoy it.
They were excellent last night at Maltby. The new material sounded good, although big fellow up front (i don't know his name and I don't have an album to hand to check) seemed a bit uncertain of the lyrics on one new tune.
Alan Reed was support, and I almost missed him after getting back late from my meeting about 60 miles away. I only saw 2 songs, which were pretty good, even if it was just himself on acoustic guiitar plus a mate on bass / keyboards (and the Pendragon drummer in a box). He seemed visibly relieved to get the gig done successfully, and encored with everybody's favourite (!) Peter Gabriel song 'Biko'.
The Wesley Centre is an really nice little venue, so the gig made my trip north worthwhile.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: A James on April 10, 2011, 05:35:56 PM
Sounds great - and if Alan keeps on with Biko maybe he can help to sort the South African problem...in much the same way as Wilf's crusade to sort the Italian language problem  ;D

I'm sorely tempted to go see Credo again at The Peel. They were so good on Saturday. Jim, Tim and Mike are a great combination on bass, guitar and keyboards and coupled with Mark's delivery of the vocals and Martin's drumming it's an excellent combo.

Real pie stalls - I might have to consider attending.
The last proper pie stall I saw was at Shrewsbury Folk Festival a couple of years ago. Most of the music was too folky (funnily enough) but the pies were superb.

Post by: Pedro on April 14, 2011, 11:00:40 PM
Well I'm not sure if these count as "real" pies but, since I was starving and in the mood for a bit of dietry misbehaviour I can honestly say that the pie, chips and gravy I had there was certainly scrummy.

The same can also be said for the hot pork roll and the huge "real sausage" hot dog I had.  :)

I think they attempted to, but either couldn't find one or everywhere was shut.

Oh yes, the famous curry quest of Xmas 08... There's nowhere that's open after the gig ends, that's one thing we definitely established.

We should get that all out of the way before the gig, then. Bit like we did with Nandos at The Luminaire. Except with curry. And at the Peel. So nothing like Nandos at The Luminaire, then...

Just confirmed THE DAVID CROSS BAND Wednesday 6th July. A Wednesday? I hear you cry, well yes as it's a warm up for Europe and they have to catch a plane.

David Cross member of King Crimson (1972-74) also featuring Craig Blundell (Frost*, Defence of the Realm) & a host of top musicians.

THE TANGENT this Sunday, if you are coming to this show remember it's Doors at 6.30pm. Show will finish at 9.30pm so loads of time to get home before Monday morning hits.

It's been a brilliant week, we have 7 days of live music this week Mon,Tue & Wed were all sold out shows.

Last call on Pendragon Sat 28th May. I am closing pre sales on this tonight, so if you haven't got a ticket yet bell me before 7.30pm. Saturday is going to be sold out. We will leave 10 places for the door. We still have tickets for Sunday 29th and they've gone really well. It's Bank Holiday Monday the next day so at least we'll have one day to recover. ;D

Grrr - the David Cross one sounds really good, but I think if I book any more midweek shows at the moment Mme Cholet will want a divorce. Especially as I am out most of the Bank Holiday weekend at the South Bank for the Stewart Lee weekend.

Hi all,

Just a quickie to update you on the House. Well after Threshold July 1st,we'll be taking a break but only a short one. The reason for this is fests & holidays. I never have holidays but everyone else seems to and with the on going economic melt down it is wise to heed this time of year.

Things are not quiet as I am beginning to sort out the Autumn/Winter shows. So far I think we've had quite an amazing year.

SATURDAY 16th JULY Ebony Tower will do a show at The Peel. They are appearing at the Cambridge Rock Fest in August but they will do a full set at The Peel only £6 advance. E.T. are local to us. I'm hoping my mates ONLY UNTIL will play a 45min set. More news when I get it.

Total Rock have moved studios again. This time it's in the darkest of East London which sadly means there is no way I can get there and back to The Peel to sort out the shows before going off to Camden to actually earn some food money. So the PENDRAGON show last Friday was my last. All good things and all that.

OK we were taking a break for Hols & Fests but these came through.



SATURDAY 16th JULY EBONY TOWER, ONLY UNTIL + AN ACOUSTIC DUO FROM THE UNI & MATES OF E.T.

FRIDAY 5th AUGUST TALANAS,SPIRES, F.G.H. (BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR FEST WARM UP)

For fans of M.D.B., ANATHEMA, OPETH.

"A forceful slab of progressive extremity"
...METAL HAMMER MAGAZINE

"Truly fascinating, in a modern way"
CLASSIC ROCK PRESENTS PROG MAGAZINE

"A Mechagodzilla of homepride filth"
TERRORIZER MAGAZINE

"Every so often, a band comes along that have the ability to reaffirm one’s faith in extreme metal... absolutely blistering progressive extremity... This is clearly one of the best-written and tightly executed releases the UK has produced in a very long time: thinking man’s metal for the new millennium. Essential."
ZERO TOLERANCE MAGAZINE (tom blackwell)

"this is  awesome ...officially "much better than interlock" (copyright D. Lawson 2010) it's the splendid talanas! Sharp, brutal and box fresh, Talanas are one of the most exciting new UK bands I've heard in ages..."
DOM LAWSON

"EP is stunning. Talanas is born. Self defining, original monstrous slabs of songs perfectly married with technicality. A genuinely exciting listen. Let me know when your next gig is so I can come along and punch folk in the pit. Pray Speed the Fever."
JASON MENDONÇA (Akercocke)

"I'm enjoying it immensely. It showcases great musicianship across the board and is engaging and memorable. Now, when's the album coming?"
MARTIN CURTIS-POWELL (ex-My Dying Bride /Aanathema / Cradle of Filth)

"Talanas offer brutality with brains. If you demand art to be inspired, intelligent and intense; then you need to seek out "reason & abstract" immediately."
HAMISH GLENCROSS (My Dying Bride)

"Been listening to the EP and absorbing it and i think its fantastic, i can tell there's a gargantuan amount of work gone into it ...i'm seriously impressed with what you've done."
RUSS RUSSELL (producer)

"...Spacious, powerful production and bewitchingly labyrinthine song structures ...seething with considered technicality whilst taking great care to maintain the balance in dynamics... An assured, professional and characterful debut that points to potential greatness in the not-too-distant future."
METALTEAMUK (frank allain)

"If you love progressive death metal in the vain of Akercocke and Opeth, you might well be in luck with this promising first release from the London-based five-piece."
THE QUIETUS (jenn selby)

"...this is an EP that left me salivating and wanting more! ...this blend is as intoxicating as intriguing. This EP is again proving that London is doing quite well in the music and Metal community."
METAL RULES (danny draper)

"Another interesting UK metal band who are actually striking off in directions that others aren't. Thank christ for that."
A MODEL OF CONTROL (adam williams)


Combining all the furiosity of extreme metal with atmospheric soundscapes influenced by the darker leanings of the 80s & 90s mainstream, talanas have made their stamp with a CD that has now been distributed across 3 continents, presenting a prog-based take on modern metal whilst maintaining a definitive sense of approachability.

Featuring ex members of interlock (Anticulture Records), The Debut Album 'The Waspkeeper'OUT NOW through Eulogy Media.

'Picking a favourite moment from my listening experience of Spiral Of Ascension is such a hard call, because it feels like a musical journey from start to finish and to enjoy it fully you must immerse yourself in the full 65 minutes of power!' 9/10 - Zorro, Sonic Shocks.

Yes they were supposed to play, we got the date then they had to cancel. I had a good chat with Criag when he came to You Me at 6 show with John Mitchell. They are hoping to get it sorted for either late this year or start of next.

It's interesting stuff, and I think the visual element would be a good move for somewhere like The Peel. NAO would be good with them, maybe Engineers too? And The Resonance Association, The Fierce And The Dead, possibly From Great Height as well... Maybe teaming them up with a band who you're more sure of would be a good way to test this particular body of water.

Hey Twang thanks for booking Nico  ;D Hope you're gonna love them! Will have to come along and support them but I'm working that day grrrr - what time slot did you think for them?

Would really appreciate anyone else available coming along to listen to some good old rock music, they're a great bunch of guys  ;)

I suggested that Twang tries to get Larry Miller in.  The Peel would be great for Larry and I'm sure that he'd get a crowd.

I'm not saying Larry is mercenary, but he does like his money if you're thinking of booking him.

Well 11th August both PIG IRON & NICO'S ALCHEMY do a warm up for Bull Dog & Bloodstock Fests.

Pig Iron are doing an acoustic set then a full electric. So, I'm guessing Nico will be on about 8ish. Only 6 quid on the door. Pure Classic Rock.

Mr. B. doesn't realty understand washing up. None of his food ever had contact with a plate or cutlery - he generally gets it 'on the hoof', so to speak.

It's just as well - getting Huw to wash up is bad enough...

Should be a great show, Dec's music was completely new to me at TBRS launch but I really enjoyed it.
I've just checked that I was leaving on holiday on the Sunday rather than the Saturday, so I will be able to see this gig.

Hi all,

Yes no problems about getting tickets for Dec/Matt show.

Friday we have TALANAS,SPIRES,FROM GREAT HEIGHT. Although this may be a bit too heavy for some. This is a warm up for Bloodstock Fest. (For fans of Opeth, My Dying Bride,Katatonia.) Spires are getting a HUGE amount of press at the mo. There is a great deal of Buzz about these guys. I just hope the buzz brings real living breathing people to the show, rather than just a media buzz that is easily done when they don't actually need to do anything but release worthy hot air all the time.

Yes - I discovered that and decided that I can't do both.  But the actual night is 29thOct because I just checked the MR website.  They are both playing 12Bar in Swindon on the previous night.

But returning to MR - I can't be in two places at once, but more importantly neither can Andy Smith.  We will see.

Well I shan't be seeing them. Mme Cholet and I are off for a romantic dinner after the afternoon session on Saturday then straight back to Whitemead for a bottle of fizzy wine (as she's driving and cant have any for dinner) and Match of the Day.

Never mind the Prog Cabin, sounds more like the Snog Cabin!

Here you go, this essay should answer things, they'll be a test later. ;D


THE ARISTOCRATS featuring

 Guthrie Govan, Bryan Beller & Marco Minnemann

 Featuring three of the most accomplished virtuosos in the world in the genre of rock-fusion instrumental music, The Aristocrats was formed shortly after January, 2011 after rock guitar sensation Guthrie Govan (Asia, Erotic Cakes, Dizzee Rascal), drum phenom Marco Minnemann (Adrian Belew, Necrophagist, UKZ), and bassist extraordinaire Bryan Beller (Steve Vai, Dethklok, Mike Keanelly) got together to do an impromptu Bass Bash event during NAMM. The three musicians hit it off so well in terms of musical interplay and chemistry that they immediately said after the show that they need to do this again. That talk evolved into making a debut album and the new fledgling supergroup went into the studio in Chicago in late-April to record the album which will be released in the summer of 2011.

 The music of The Aristocrats can be viewed as a melting pot of virtuosic guitar instrumental music reminiscent of "G3" artists like Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, etc.; the legendary 70's jazz-rock fusion music of seminal bands like the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Return To Forever, and Weather Report; the complex progressive rock of Frank Zappa, King Crimson, The Dixie Dregs, and UK; and the rock improvisational spirit of Cream, the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Jeff Beck. Alternately raw, sophisticated, intense, intricate, soulful, eclectic, lyrical and supremely musical, The Aristocrats sets a new standard for excellence in adventurous rock-fusion music that retains the energy of rock while exploring the outer limits of fusion that encompasses jazz, progressive, metal, blues, and even modern electronica-techno with a stunningly cohesive ensemble sound.

 See it and hear it all from this incredible new band that takes the power trio concept to a whole new level. If you are musically eclectic and have always wondered what it'd be like if a band of virtuoso musicians can fuse disparate musical styles and genres into one wholly integrated sound and style, The Aristocrats is the band you've been waiting for. The music of The Aristocrats is also where complex musical compositions and tonal soundscapes meet challenging improvisations and creative spontaneity. The Aristocrats is about taking rock-fusion into a new realm of uncharted musical territories. Come see and hear music that is simply unprecedented...

So,Andy Tillison (Tangent) has stepped in and will do a mini set. Andy was doing a couple of songs with Concrete Lake anyway. What a STAR!! It makes this night nice & unique.

Doors 7.30pm Andy 8.15pm  Quantum Sphere 8.30-9.15pm Concrete Lake 9.30 - 10.15pm

The above is a rough guide and guess work, please feel free to beat me should this change.

Post by: James_H on October 14, 2011, 12:00:13 AM
Well, that was a great night. First we had Andy Tillison's solo set- by his own admission completely unrehearsed!

We got "A Tale of Two Souls" followed by a cover of a Howard Jones song (yeah really), and then a very interesting spacey/ ambient thing which Andy said was a Tangerine Dream rip-off. "Phaedra 2" or something? Really cool anyway.

Then it was Quantum Sphere. Hmm. As with a few Summer's End bands, not really for me- but seemed to be good at what they did. If this helps anyone imagine them, they played a medley of Meshuggah songs at the end, and they sounded exactly the same as their own stuff.

The problem for me was just that it was 45 minutes of solid metal riffing, no variety at all, no light and shade, just RAAHHHHHH.

By contrast, Concrete Lake know exactly when to switch things up. By turns loud, quiet, heavy riffing, funky grooves- no one section ever outstays its welcome. They have riffs which are just as heavy as Quantum Sphere's, but the quieter bits in-between make them all the more effective.

The set was largely the same as Summers End, although a couple of their own songs were swapped out for firstly their cover of PT's "Open Car" and then a Guthrie Govern track, which was good fun but so different to the rest of the set as to be slightly out of place.

The reception was also just as good as at SE, albeit from a crowd of no more than 30- a bit of a shame but no matter, I think we'll be seeing a lot  more of these guys in the future.

Threshold have Kingcrow supporting them for some of the other shows on the tour. I was quite excited until I read the details and saw that they weren't with Threshold for the UK show. They were really good supporting Redemption and their latest album, Phlegethon, is really good in a Pain Of Salvation, Heavier Porky Tree kinda way. I told Huw about them at SE as a potential for Fused.

Not actually a HOP show (obviously) but Dodgy last night were excellent.  I only really knew their hits but Dame is/was a big fan.  Before their success they were the resident band of a Kingston place and you can tell when a band is used to doing this size venue.  They were full of banter and jokes and seemed to be really enjoying themselves.  They performed most of their new album which is to be released at some point, then they had a 15 min break and returned to do 5 or 6 oldies including the two I knew.  I think the newer stuff sounded better if perhaps not as bouncy.  The hi-light of the evening for me was their impression of Oasis.  It was so incredibly funny.  Fishermans Pie was the 'song'.  Apparently they won't be releasing it  ;D

They are playing some place called Barries on Tuesday week, I would recommend it as a very fun show. I cannot guarantee they will sing 'Fishermans Pie' again though.

I won't be there, pity, because I'd like to see David Cross.
However, I've just seen that Knifeworld are playing in Bristol on Friday evening, which interests me. Never been to the Croft venue, and parking is likely to be troublesome, so more investigation required.

Which is the nearest station to The Peel, and which is the central London station for getting to it ?

I have a friend coming along tonight and need to let them know...

Thanks.

Post by: Simon on November 11, 2011, 10:38:35 AM
Norbiton is just a shade closer than Kingston but we are talking a matter of probably a few hundred yards difference.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: Uncle Bulgaria on November 11, 2011, 11:28:46 AM
Norbiton is much close than Kingston. You can get a train from Waterloo. I think (but you'd have to check) that the eventual destination of trains to Norbiton/Kingston is Strawberry Hill.

Trains run back to London until fairly late, but of course the tube stops about twentyu minutes after midnight.

If you want to get anywhere that is on the Victoria line, or just get on the tube network early, trains stop at Vauxhall station which is also a tube station.

A really good evening's entertainment.  In the end there was pretty good crowd - about 100, I'd guess - which is a lot more than were around at 7:30.  A speaker was blown up which added to the fun.,

I am still trying to finish Peru...

It was a great gig, excellent sets from both bands, and a very receptive audience which grew to a decent size.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: RobH on November 12, 2011, 05:54:11 PM
Yes - I enjoyed it.  David hated the David Cross band - really slated them.  I thought that they were really very good, and the way that they contructed the set allowed everyone to have their moment in the spotlight.  It was a pity that Leon wasn't there.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: A James on November 12, 2011, 07:36:46 PM
Yes, I think Leon would have really enjoyed it. I liked the original material from the DCB and will be getting the album when it comes out.

Hi everyone,

News!! You may have heard I'm no longer working at The Peel, well, that's not strictly and entirely true. It is with HUGE relief that I am no longer full time. I am now solely House of Progression.

The whole story would take too much time and is very boring. It should be said that working for the Peel for 15 years started to take a massive toll on both my physical & mental health.

So just to let you all know that I'm back and will see you at Magenta. Unless of course they get me to DJ the Blue Bar.

If any of you need any info on tickets or, anything regarding House of Progression please email twangshow@hotmail.com from now on!!

Agreed. I saw how hard your worked down there sir and how much it took out of you (Shadow Gallery anyone?)

Really glad to see you concentrating only on the HoP. If there's anything we can do to help, you're in more trouble than I thought.  ;)

Post by: RobH on November 20, 2011, 12:37:15 AM
After I was there for a while, I realised that something was missing - posters.  There is not a single poster advertising upcoming gigs in the main room or in the bar room.  There are a few in the entrance hall where you can't read them because you'll be in the way.  If people don't know who is coming up, they can't buy tickets.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: Ash on November 20, 2011, 08:37:08 AM
I noticed that.  Had to glance at a flyer on the bar.

It will be interesting to see how many people turn up for Panic Room in two weeks.  I haven't seen the band do much promotion, and the Peel isn't doing any.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: Bert on November 20, 2011, 01:25:27 PM
So, something happened at The Peel last night that I'd not seen before. Twang cleared the bar before doors and we all had to queue up outside. George did the tickets from a table positioned in front of the doors to the bar, rather than his cage (it's probably nicer for him tbh  ;D). Once inside, the double doors through to the bar from the performed area where opened up, so that yu could walk though to the other bar, without going out and in again, if that makes sense.

It was quite good, although there was a LOT of chatter from the bar which was especially noticeable in Magenta's quieter passages.

It's not a compliant, I was just curious as to why really.

The sound last night was easily the best I've heard at The Peel. I guess Magenta aren't the loudest on stage band in the wold, but the instrument balance was almost perfect, the keyboards and especially Chris Fry's guitar were beautifully blended. There was quite a lot of use of, at a guess, a Taurus pedal emulator to underpin some passages and when this kicked in it was very well mixed in, both powerful, clear and well balanced.

I wasn't at the front but certainly Chritina was using in ear monitors, and I guess if they were all using them, that might have hoped, not having to compete with loads of on stage volume.

Whoever the sound guy was did a brilliant job and if I was a band playing there I'd want him. I know it's not easy in a small place like that, but it was outstanding IMHO. A masterclass in live sound mixing, even, if I may be so bold.

They did that for the Touchstone / Tinyfish gig last December, if I remember correctly. A good indication of a gig selling well, I'd hope.  :)

I'm glad you noticed  ;D. We open the room up when we've sold 100+ tickets. I want people to be comfortable. Also there was a football crowd in so it was decided to do the door a the front to control things. Great gig!!

By the looks of things they have just spent at least the last few hundred years crawling inside Panda's ears whispering[1] "You see that bamboo, that's proper tasty that is. Meat, naaaa, don't bother with meat you don't really like it". And so on.

Hence their current plight.

Twelfth Night were very good tonight.  Mark Spencer did even more than usual as he was on vocal duty.

It was rammed in the Peel tonight.  I couldn't get into the main room until half time.  It was full of cameras and mixing desks.

I'll be able to see what I missed when the DVD comes out.

I spoke to Clive Nolan and it looks like there'll be another fun raised next year.  He has booked the theatre for the DVD shoot in Poland next year.  I'd like to go out for that.

It was good to see Claire & Bo & Catherine & Purdey.

Post by: A James on January 15, 2012, 12:51:17 AM
Glad we didn't pop along if it was that full - would not have suited the mood we were put in at all.  Glad it was packed for the band, though.

I agree with James. A packed Peel is great for the band (especially if they're filming it), but it's not an ideal environment for the audience. Glad the gig was a good one, though.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: AmazingWilf on January 15, 2012, 07:45:09 AM
Mark Spencer has a very decent voice....or at least, he had in 1985 ;)


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: RobH on January 15, 2012, 09:19:58 AM
It was difficult to say how busy it really was.  I suspect that there was space, but we couldn't get to it because the raised bit at the back was being used as some sort of control desk for the live recording plus a camera on a stand.  Inside there were two further cameras on tables/platforms, each with on operator stood on the table/platform.  I'd guess that between all this equipment, about 25 people couldn't get in.

Of course, normally we would have been there more than 5 minutes before it started.

I have no problem with the place being rammed - BUT it is not fair to charge people if there is no hope of them seeing anything.

They had an auction and a raffle.  I didn't win anything which might be just as well as I'm not sure how I would have dealt with winning a curry night out with the band.

I had a lovely evening, but that was mostly down to the people I saw in the audience.  If I hadn't known the material beforehand, I certainly wouldn't have learned anything new last night.  What is good for the band isn't necessarily good for the audience, as Mouse said, but it seems that only the bands likely to generate big audiences are getting booked.  Don't like to moan about the Peel as obviously I love it, but I also live in hope of the refit extending to the 'facilities' !

I wish the aircon had been turned on earlier. It was seriously uncomfortable in there, and playing sweaty sardines is not my idea of fun. I'd just got to the point where it was completely unbearable and told Simon M (who came with me last night) that I needed to go somewhere cooler, at which point the aircon went on.

But the music was very enjoyable.

We went to the Mehrish for a quick curry beforehand, as Simon's a veggie. I thought I'd try the vegetable biryani, and was most entertained to find a couple of bits of a most unusual and unexpected vegetable in it. I had never before realised that sheep were a vegetable.

It is a Saturday next February, I expect to co-incide with half term so that Sian can attend.  I'm going to do my best to get along to it.  Clive said that he needed to have it all recorded this autumn, and that he'd spent a month doing the first 90 seconds.  He told us that he spends most time on the start getting a really big sound that grips the listener, but this one needs to be more subtle.  So there will be a 90 second intro followed by the big overture.

1) Is anyone going to see Pallas (and Matt) in February that might also be driving back to anywhere near North London?

2) Is anyone going to Mr So & So in February  - same question applies.

Mme Cholet is coming down for Mr So & So, but I imagine that if we're getting the train home we'd be leaving pretty early.

The details which Twang did not tell me last night are now also not being told on Facebook.

Oh, as I see you've already posted. Doh! This promises to be an excellent festival event.

I think it's bout time Twang's gigs broke out of the Peel- there've been a couple of gigs there recently where it hasn't been much fun.

Twang said he was trying to negotiate to have it finish at proper gig closing time.

But still- since the whole thing kicks off at 2pm I reckon there'll be plenty of time for everyone to get a full length slot AND nobody will have to bribe food establishments to stay open late for us afterwards.

Now featuring TINYFISH, DEC BURKE, THE TANGENT + 2 ACTS TBA ;D

It's called HOUSE OF PROGRESSIONS'S CELEBRATION FEST.
 
The fest is all about celebrating the bands who re launched Prog in the 80's & the bands that take it further today!

I wanted a Prog fest that did not compromise. No fillers all Killers.

Limited Early bird tickets will be on sale at The Peel's PALLAS show.
(£50.00 weekend early birds) Cash only on the Pallas show)

On line tickets on sale 27th FEB. Details very soon.

I am working on the curfew but please all understand I can't put these bands on at The Peel. Frost* taught me that with certain artists I have to think of the comfort of the most important people on the planet, you the audience!

Doors will be at 2.00pm. So if I Lose the curfew battle we'll still have over 7 hours or so of pure brilliant music!!

Oh the Hippodrome is a venue.... Bands that have played there Kasabian, The Specials, The Strokes, Enter Shikari did the album launch to 1,400 people You me at Six massive Reading Leeds Fest warm ups, loads of U.S. Ska & punk bands.

Kingston is changing and going more for performance based entertainment rather than the clubbing.

Sounds awesome mate. There's nothing wrong with a curfew in and of itself, as others have said it allows more time for social stuff, last trains, etc.
The key will be making it start on time without the rock'n'roll delays. I've seen a few encores get nixed by curfews, if this doesn't happen (and no-one truss to say 60 minutes is a"full set" then it will be fine.
Looking forward to hearing more details. Can't get to the Pallas gig.

That's why it's 4 bands per day. Any more and it'll be a nightmare. I will have a stage manager too.

Although this is not set in stone yet I many have an acoustic stage timed whilst changeovers are taking place on the main stage.

Thea, I spent 2 years going out with an IQ roadie in the 80's, I regularly traveled to Holland and Germany to see them in the 90's, and I still see them whenever I can.

I don't think that they play often enough for people to get bored with them.

I just can't stand the singer's voice, and in truth, I don't think that they are that special.  As for the Tangent, I've tried my hardest to like them, but to me it;s the musical equivalent of watching paint dry.  It'll be a shame to miss Sean Filkins.  No final decision yet, but I really don;t think I'll be along to the Saturday.

It's going to be interesting...

I think the whole nostalgia thing worked to their advantage - allowing the new lineup to build up plenty of classic material live. The other option might have been to go straight to working on new material and run the risk of losing old fans because the lineup isn't prepared to play what they want to hear. From the sounds of it, there *is* new material being worked on, it's just not being played live yet - I can wait!  8)

Filkie should terrific - he was great singing with Lee Abraham, and I suspect that the band he'll have for this will comprise many of the same people (they worked with him on War & Peace...).

I'm intending to be there for both days. Hopefully there won't be an over-18s only policy, because it would be nice if we could all be there. Yvette was a big IQ fan, back in the day, and she hasn't seen them since 1985 or something. Also, she's never seen Tinyfish.

So did I. Outstanding in places. Since then they've got rid of 3/5ths of the band of course.

What new IQ lineup ? It's now almost the old lineup...
Vox, guitar and drums are the same, Tim's back on bass and Neil does keyboards. And they're all really good and lovely.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: A James on January 30, 2012, 03:07:36 PM
Bass had been the same for ages, before going back to the original. The only real change has been with keyboards. I don't think they have had a very good reason to drag out the nostalgia-fest.

Still a step up from Twelfth Night, though.

Excellent - we have to be in town for Tim Minchin in the evening on the Sunday, but we're well up for coming back for this weekend, and I am glad we won't have to miss Tinyfish (might even see a little of Magenta).

You can only imagine what it takes to organise a fest like this. The stories I can tell you (later) you just wouldn't believe.
 
I have become an expert on having the urine extracted out of me just to get a later time for the Saturday.The bands and line ups have been carefully worked out and I have to take into account many, many things. The security alone is a  massive expense but required by law.

Bloody scary I can tell you. This'll even make me or, break me.

The venue was chosen because it looks & feels amazing, the facilities are incredible. Full wheelchair access lifts for them disabled toilets on each level if needed. Toilets are clean and look nice. The venue is central with easy reach of all good food retailers.

Yes there are a few compromises I have to make but it's the same all round for venues of this size. It does not compromise the artists or the audience, which is what I care about most of all.

House of Progression's intent is to grow, I will be looking into taking certain shows to Central London.

There are however, certain terms I will NOT back down on. 1st of many is I will NOT!!!!!!! Work with any venue who takes a percentage of Merch sales. If they want that I want the artists to take a percentage of the venue's bar take.

If they say no then I take the show somewhere else.

Progressive Rock is for the most important people on the planet the general public!! The artists & the people must NOT  get ripped by bigger companies jumping on a popular bandwagoon!!

I feel very, very passionate about this. The festival is a Celebration but at the same time it sends out a  message.

I'm putting these shows on regardless. I will get the best possible deal for the artists & audience.


On another note entirely. Flying Colours album is so, so, so , so GOOD!!!!

Note 2 The Peel Aristocrats & Godsticks show is nearly sold out!!! YAY! So do get tickets if you want to go. ;D

I'm also working on an April show which hopefully will work out. ;D

OK don't know how I'm going to work this but I just got a ticket for The Aristocrats, I just can't miss it.

Train after work to the gig then maybe Bull and Bush and go straight to work in the morning... unless I can get the 8th off or even a half day... or a doc's appointment maybe...

Yeah...Twang reports that it would cost thousands (literally) to get a license for that venue which would cover under-18s, so it's totally understandable that he can't do it.

As far as The Peel is concerned they do allow 16+ with I.D. It used to allow younger at the landlords discretion. Unfortunately when the new license came through it stated 16+. The Hippodrome can allow 14+ but as already stated at a cost in Security which would kill me,and they'd close all bars downstairs which is a right pain.

Thing is us lot are a pretty civilised lot, brought up to respect other people. Some of the younger ones now are just plain
animals who care for nothing but themselves. That's why it's all a bit Draconian. They've brought it on themselves though.

Notice I said some and not all. I feel so sorry for the kids they are missing out on so, so much. All because of a bunch of (place relevant expletive here)

Annoyingly, 2pm for the doors opening[1] is on the cusp of 'do I drive home or find a place to stay the night'. Money-wise petrol vs B&B are similar and I would be back out onto the road not long after waking up on Sunday morning.
I think that whether the other half wants to come for Tinyfish or whether she is put off the Sunday by the fact that it's not just Tinyfish will be the crucial factor. There's no way she would come for the Saturday.

Yes but not yet. I don't know how much they will be (honest) but I'm sure Twang won't want to rip anyone off. The weekend tickets go on sale Monday.

Tickets officially go on sale on Monday. I'll have early bird tickets at Pallas show on Saturday. Pallas were always playing but we did not fully announce because we didn't want to harm the current tour. It was agreed by all to announce it today as Pallas tour starts.

I am releasing Weekend tickets first , then after an initial period to see sales I will look at Day tickets. This was always the intention.

Obviously I have committed myself to this and have to make it work.Otherwise I'll be on the streets. ;D (Note to self, shouldn't laugh Twang)

Leamington Spa gig with Pendragon sounds like it's the closest announced so far. Think there are supposed to be more gigs later in the year though.

I'm sure it will be really good.  I'm off to the fasr west (of Bristol).

And it was the far west of Bristol all right.

But it wasn't too difficult to get to...

I'm glad those that went had a good rime at the Peel.

My nice gentleman friend missed half the gig due to the soccer shenanigans - I had far too much giddy  ;D

Things change...  I've been the Peel 3 times this year, with two more planned.  It does feel like the beginning of the end for the place.

I think the main problem on Sat was the lack of staff.  Somebody wanted to buy tickets for Twelfth Night but they were told they couldn't as they only had 2 bar staff so couldn't sell tickets.

Not to mention the white and lighting is horrid.

Let me know why you think beginning of the end for the place. I ask because I have been  thinking that since I've left certain things have changed. People can't get tickets as easily as before. I seriously want to know everyone's thoughts.

I feel the pain. It had nothing to do with me. It does indeed come across as clinical. It will work with Twelfth Night as the idea is to have full on projections which will be ideal.

I want to put projections for all shows but it means me buying all the kit. It's just me doing this so, I have to find the cash to live and get things sorted.

I just wished they'd left the stage black & put the lighting effects & laser back. You are not alone in this I've bumped into loads of other bands I worked well with when I worked there and they all say the same. In fact a few bands don't want to play there, which I find sad.

There is a whole story but it's not my place to discuss it on here.

I have been approached about shows at The Borderline, bands are asking me to sort the shows, also last night at It Bites was a real eyeopener. Bush Hall is a gorgeous venue and the staff were very friendly and encouraging about the possibilities of doing shows there.

It is vital that you let me know your thoughts. The House of Progression is all about putting on top shows that have the public gig experience in mind!!!

It's my living now after what happened last year. I need to know your thoughts so I can put anything right. I've sacrificed so much to do this, I'm not stopping now!!

I agree with other comments after it not feeling the same since the paint job.

From my view as a photographer the lighting at the Peel was always a challenge, now it is awful. On Saturday I saw several people using flash, something I would never do as the bands must find it distracting.





Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: RobH on May 21, 2012, 04:17:19 PM
I agree with comments about the decor and ticket purchasing.  Ticket purchasing is the worst - from being difficult, it's got down to impossible at times.  I can't understand this - surely the best time to sell tickets is when people are there.

Of course, to buy tickets, you have to know what shows are on.  The last time I was at the Peel, I saw no posters.  There is no one who works as hard as Twang, but the venue seems to be doing everything to make his job as difficult as possible.

I heard bad things about the changing rooms.  This could be a one-off.

Then there is the sound.  Remember when David Cross band nearly didn't play because the speakers didn't work.

Finally, there does seem to be a big step down in the number of bands playing there.  I have missed a few this year, but not that many.  I have to say for those events that do happen, the crowd is much bigger.

I was thinking about the number of shows that the CRS are putting on in Rotherham.  Surely London can support the same sort of number of gigs.  I think that the CRS failed because they put on the wrong bands and on the wrong nights.

Post by: The Naughty Sorceress on May 21, 2012, 04:52:50 PM
I don't really mind about the way the venue looks - it's not what I'd choose, but it's not unbearable. A bit more light on stage might be nice.

Totally agree about tickets though - I'd love to be able to buy tickets online, would make life a LOT easier!

Yes - I was thinking about the Lexington rather than the Luminaire.  The Luminaire got about the same number of people but, because it was much smaller, it seemed to be full. 

Although I completely understand it, it does seem that a band needs to be able to get a much bigger crowd to be invited to play the Peel.  Time was when a crowd of 30 would be enough; now it's closer to 100.  The reasons are obvious.  But, the number of gigs has gone down.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: A James on May 21, 2012, 07:52:25 PM
I agree about the decor, but am more concerned about the lack of a light show on stage.

I don't even bother trying to buy tickets in advance any more - most times the bar staff just look blank.  And if I don't have a ticket it is much easier for something else to come along which gets in the way...

The thing is with selling tickets at the venue is that you are selling to people who are likely to want to come.  They will make a commitment at that moment.  Once you let them walk out of the door, there is a good chance that they won't be bothered enough to book the tickets online, even if they know where to book the tickets.

Post by: Simon on May 22, 2012, 10:00:56 AM
If I may step up and stand beside Twang for a moment. I think the poor bugger is fighting a police action on two fronts at the moment. Twang doesn't own the venue and has little say in what they do with the place and the feeling I get is that the rug has more or less been pulled out from under him as they try to cater for a younger audience. In addition, he's working all the hours that creation has sent him on promoting Celebr8. As most promoters will tell you, mounting something new like this can be a real challenge but both Twang and Geoff Banks (the festival's co-promoter) have lent their full weight to the endevour in the hope of both moving the House Of Progression to the next level and hey, allowing people to spend an enjoyable evening/day/weekend in the company of like minded individuals, with a glass of something cold in their hands whilst listeing to some briliant bands.

I think everyone here recognises that Twang, the CRS and the Summers End organisation are the big players in the UK prog world and without them, we wouldn't have seen half the acts that are around today with anywhere near the ease and frequency that we have. I cetainly admit that the Peel doesn't have the same atmosphere since the changes but it's still a regular London prog venue and those are few and far between these days.

More power to you Twang.  :)

Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: Twang on May 24, 2012, 01:45:52 PM
From August shows all Peel House of Progression shows will work like this. Online sales through Merch Desk. Please not that there will have to be a small booking fee. We are forced to do this it's is nothing to do with merchdesk.com it's the online transaction firms that do this. It will be kept to a minimum and won't be stupid.

I will also have physical tickets to sell at shows for all the gigs booked. I'm doing all this off my own back & not through the Peel. So the first gig on this will be KNIFEWORLD,FIERCE & THE DEAD AUG 11th. I'm stupidly busy with the TN & Celebr8 to do it sooner. If you've already got Knifeworld/Fierce tickets don't worry you're sorted.

I will be doing shows at The Borderline, Scala & other places as well as The Peel. These shows will be sold via the venue's online ticket payments. That is standard.  More news on that when I get it.

That's stage one. Stage two will require dressing the stage, one thing at a time though.

Hope that sorts the immediate problem.

cheers xxxxx

Coming slightly late to this I agree with much of what has been said, especially the difficulty in buying tickets. However, the most recent time I phoned, not only was the phone answered (!), but the e-ticket bought and emailed the same evening. So from this sample of one, it has got better.

Central London is good - I like that most venues stop around 10pm, which gives me a chance of getting home at about 12:30.  As I found out in Saturday, getting home from London takes ages (I live just outside Reading).  Fortunately Reading has a train service that runs late so it is possible to get home.

The Peel is about an hour - so finishing there at 11:00 means home for 12:30.

As for the football well, it's the only date Haken can do. They came to me to arrange it all. We wanted the Saturday as it was free on the web page, they were waiting for contracts to get sorted. So, we went for the Sunday which was the only window.

It seems these days there are always something going on. If you look at it that way you'd never get anything done.

Fantastic we should have a blast. Nearfest is Sold Out so I'm praying all the promo I've done works. It would be a very sad to think that a UK band can play a U.S. sold out festival and not ram a UK venue. Especially when we get the full U.S. set & more.

Ok Here we go. I think we all need to think of House of Progression as a known name where you can see great Progressive Music. No longer just attached to The Peel. It started the ride but it's now a Journey.

Celebr8 Fest was a test to see if I could get out of my comfort zone, OK the sensible thing would have been to just move the venue and not take on a monumental task. I have never been that sensible, it's not fun enough.

Every one doubted Celebr8 would work, the venue, Banquet records (who put on Lost Prophets, Enter Shikari, You Me at 6 an all the other fodder kids love these days. There was even doubt from many on here. But with the tireless Celebr8 team of Geoff, Nellie, Bob, Vit P, Simon G & a host of others who, if I listed the World would end before you read it all, I knew I was in good company!

Well it shut up the doubters & Jon Tolley from Banquet, the boss in fact, told me Geoff and I had earned a huge amount of respect from the Kingston music Cool crew. Nothing like that had ever been attempted in Kingston let alone pull it off. Kingston was a buzz with speculation of what was occurring.

This was THANKS to the hordes of fans with different T-Shirts & accents from all over the UK, Europe, U.S., Japan and central Scunthorpe. Kingston definitely had a better class of people last weekend!  ;D

It's funny that I'm being asked to work on certain projects. I was in London on Thursday to sort the business end of he Frost* Bites show. I was in the Crobar afterwards & Jerry Ewing who has supported me above and beyond said to me that now a lot of people are taking me very seriously.

Thre was a media criticism that the line up bar IQ was too Peel based bands. Hang on a mo there umm Celebr8?? That was kind of the point, to 'Celebrate' bands that have become family!! If I had all the bands I wanted the fest would have lasted a month. Complain about your meal breaks then. ;D ;D

Oh and guys if there was no House of Progression the bands would not have played Kingston town. Look at how far many of he bands have come. And the MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE OF ALL!!!! YOU the fans, the people who come to the shows. The secret ingredient of course is the fact that 'we love the music'!

There are and will be shows at The Peel. But it was where H.O.P. was born. Like a child there comes a time when it has to fly the nest, and return at some points with dirty laundry and to have a major party. ;D

The Hippodrome wants us back, The Borderline wants us back, hopefully the Scala will as well.

I had a meeting on Thursday with the Unicorn in Camden, it's like the Peel was before they umm  you know. IPA is £2.80 a pint, they have a pay bands structure so entry to the public is FREE!! :o :o :o Cheaper beer, hundreds of regular transport links & Prog will sponsor all shows.

So check www.houseofprogression.com for all updates. Check it after 6pm today as I have more exciting up dates.

I have work to do!!

All the very, very best,

Sir Jonathan Twangage

I was sitting in the office getting frustrated that one of my colleagues is not ding something that (a) he is supposed to do, (b) I can't do, and (c) I need to happen for a customer.  I was contemplating suggesting the company should run customer awareness courses.

My mind then drifted back to Lord Twang of Kingston and Celebr8, and it re-enforced my though that Twang understands and empathises with his customers - by that, I mean the fans and bands.

Come the end of the year, Twang gets my vote for every appropriate category.

I think we can all agree that we are so very lucky indeed to have someone like Twang actively promoting and supporting all kinds of music below the commercial radar, purely for the love of doing it and ever taking risks to take it to the next level.

Twang’s post pleases me immensely. There are few people out there willing to put so much time and effort into creating debut events of this nature and when you find people who can walk the walk as well as talk the talk, we as lovers of the music should get behind them and show our support by being there in person (as has been the case with Celebr8 and indeed SE over the years)

John and his team have tapped into a growing trend in the Prog world which is moving away from individual shows and focusing much more upon day and weekend events.

In a lot of ways, London does have an advantage over other areas simply down to transport links an amenities but it’s not impossible to do it elsewhere as the many CRS and Summers End shows have proven. That said, I still believe that the day of the individual or dual headline show is not yet over. Twang has a real chance of getting his foot in the door to convince the big players that there is a genuine market for progressive rock in the UK which thus far, has gone largely untapped.

The trick its to draw out the undecideds who lurk about at home and convince them that there is good reason to step outside their doors and discover a hidden world of incredible music and talent.

Everything has its day in the sun and like The Peel, I think HOP is transforming itself into something very different. I say more power to you John; we’re all behind you.   8)

""There was some chatter in the Twitter-sphere about the comparison between HoP and LiveNation," said the AP journalist. "I'm wondering your reaction. And, what do you say to the cynics who say you have to be making bands pay and charging massive service fees to run Prog gigs in this country?"

Twang, sitting behind a desk in the cabin, picked up the microphone and delivered his message nearly 100 metres away to the press tent.

"Honestly, they're just f**king w**kers," Twang said. "I cannot be dealing with people like that. [Laughs, from the press tent - ed.] It justifies their own bone-idleness because they can't ever imagine applying themselves to anything in their lives. And it's easy for them to sit under a pseudo-name on Twitter and write that sort of s**t rather than get off their arses in their own life and apply themselves, and work hard at something and achieve something. And that's ultimately it."

The translator readied to deliver the message in 7/8, but before she could, Twang picked up the microphone and sent the final message to the cynics: "C**ts!"

I know nothing of this comparison between H.O.P. and Live Nation. I have ranted like this about Guilfest. Live Nation do Download and I know Andy Copping who runs it. I have the ultimate respect for Andy. He has worked so hard to get where he is now.

I have and do rant about how the 'cynics' sit on their pizza packed backsides, in front of a computer slagging off everything we try and do. Jerry Ewing gets the same thing. They are so full of apathetic venom, not surprising as on a computer they feel they are kings of the castle. We don't hear their mothers screaming upstairs because their dinner is ready and they've just had their 45th Birthday.

I have lost it at Guilfest when many, many bands I know have to pay over £1,500 to play a 30 min set in an unsigned tent in the bottom end (look I'm being restrained with my language) of a field. They then have to sell those tickets to get the money back. When you think that every unsigned band has to do this so it pays for the headliners & most of the festival.

The quote sounds about right but it is very important to put it all in the right context.

Probably one of the reason's I've been named the Ray Winstone of Prog.

I wouldn't mind going but it will depend on my finances after coming back from World Superbikes at Silverstone the week before. If I was going to go I'd by train but change at Reading rather that take my usual route which involves getting the tube from Paddington to Waterloo and then train from there to KUT

They're called Breasts Vivian, everybody's got them.

As discussed on here previously and confirmed by Nellie, all advance tickets for the Peel H.O.P. Shows will be going through The Merch Desk. It has been frustrating to get many messages by people who couldn't get tickets. It became quite obvious to do this to ensure the quality of service everyone has been used to.

Because of people's difficulty in obtaining tickets I have decided to keep the door price of tomorrows KNIFEWORLD / FIERCE AND THE DEAD show the same as advanced.

There, that was a patient and calm post. Considering I have been seething about the whole sorry situation.

I would like to thank Nellie for the quick & efficient transition!!

Post by: Twang on August 21, 2012, 03:01:10 PM
I know that posting on here is preaching to the converted, but as you know I sometimes need to rant & ranting on here at least I know most will understand.

THIS IS REALITY!!

 SOLSTICE/IO EARTH Camden Underword, London

Assumption, it is said, is the mother of all fuck ups. In this day and age, it simply isn't enough to book a gig, tell people about it on your website or Facebook page and assume they’ll turn up. As evinced by the paltry showing in Camden’s Underworld tonight, unless you get out there and promote the hell out of the thing, they won’t. A good case in point is the show by a young UK prog act the next night, a Sunday night that also plays host to the Euro 2012 final. It’s this band’s first trek into central London too, and yet some serious hard graft meant the venue was impressively crowded. Valuable lessons to be learnt here methinks.

IO Earth’s troubles don't just end with the 150 or so people milling around in acres of space. Lead singer Claire Malin has been taken ill and can’t make the gig. Still, after some humble apologies the remaining five instrumental members make a fair fist of entertaining the crowd with a rearranged set that sadly only includes the title track from this year’s impressive Moments. It’s not all doom however – an impromptu jam built around chords shouted out by the audience injects a nice moment of levity into what really could have gone horribly wrong for the band.

It’s been nearly 30 years since this writer last saw Solstice on stage, back at London’s Marquee club in the heyday of the 80s prog revival. Steven Wilson was a fan back then and he’s here tonight to check on the band’s progress. The beards and woolly hats may have gone and the band’s more relaxed approach to conducting their business has been replaced with something a touch more contemporary, but there remains something charmingly naïve about Solstice.
That said, Andy Glass, the sole survivor from that era (who doesn't seem to have aged a day), is a formidable guitarist, and there are times when he cuts loose tonight that simply take your breath away. Opening pair Morning Light and Peace take the audience right back to those heady Marquee days, singer Emma Brown a fitting talent to tread where the likes of Sandy Leigh and Shelley Platt had gone convincingly before. Still, given that she’s been at the mic for Solstice since 1996 perhaps her accomplished performance shouldn’t be that surprising. Beside her, violinist Jenny Newman is  as dextrous on the neck of her instrument as Glass is on his guitar, shining on the traditional Lads Of Lois and Jenny’s Chickens. Best of all is the interplay between Glass and keyboard player Steve McDaniel on new song Keepers, which suggests, that, when it arrives, the band’s follow up to 2010’s Spirit should be an absolute corker.

Jerry Ewing

Jerry is actually being very generous about the numbers, I was there, I counted 82 people on a Saturday night. The Sunday show referred to was the Haken Borderline show. The Northern Line was out as well.

And this is so true of not just these bands, it happens 9/10. And not just bands, the apathy is rife in the audience as well.  I don't believe there is a Live Prog scene in the UK,I think people like individual bands. People say they love the music & wax lyrical on social network sights but when it actually comes to doing anything about it, it's another story.

The reason for my outburst is pure and utter frustration whilst working on a certain Peel show. (In fact a lot of the shows full stop.)

I have sent an email to both management & record label kicking butt!!! I don't care if they take it badly, I seem to be the only one working on these shows. The conversation that stated, Oh we are hitting myspace, & Facebook.

I can't wait to hear back, particularly my comment............Really? Why not just become a plumber instead the good you are doing for the music.

So, in a way X-Factor can't be blamed at all. The very artists, management & so called damn record companies are doing a fantastic job killing the 'Scene' or, the Smoke and Mirrors of what people think is a scene.

APATHY IS NOT AN OPTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The Battle continues..........................................................For now.

Thanks for reading, understanding and helping in some manner in keeping my sanity together.....................Just.

Post by: Trace on August 21, 2012, 04:10:36 PM
Unfortunately it has often been so.
I'm sure we all have horror stories, but my favourite is an under-publicised Grey Lady Down gig in Swindon. They were vaguely popular at the time, but there were only about 8 people in a big room. I really enjoyed the gig, but felt sorry for both the band and landlord. At the time there was no prog press, no internet, and only local papers. And the Swindon audience were (and often still are) notoriously difficult to prise away from their sofas.

Kepp going Twang, and I shall endeavour to get to at least one HOP show before Christmas.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: Simon on August 22, 2012, 09:42:27 AM
You make a lot of sense Twang. I couldn't agree more.

I think for a band to draw a crowd, you have to capture people’s imagination and enthusiasm and in order to do that, the band in question needs to possess something that the other bands do not. Raw talent is just not enough. The world is full of talented people who never find a niche. You have to get involved with the scene at a personal level.

The other thing is finding that element which gives you a unique or at least uncommon point of interest. It’s a bloody hard thing to do and in most cases you either stumble upon it by sheer luck, or you meticulously craft it through a process of trial and error.

In the case of Tinyfish on stage, I've always believed it is down to the musical chemistry generated by the people in the band and the shared sense of humour. You can see it here on the forum that contrary to outside perception, most Prog fans possess a fully developed and highly active sense of humour. Sure there is power and emotion in the music but there is also a lot to smile about and share. That sharing is what we always try to accomplish in the band because we've always seen ourselves as fans of the genre who just happen to play in Tinyfish as well.

It’s not hard work if you love what you do.

You'll see us in the audience at other bands gigs because we like the music and we've become friends with a large number of people who also make the effort to attend the shows. When you see Rob and I wandering around at Summers End this year for example, we’ll be there because it’s fantastic just to listen to great bands and hang out with like minded people.

Over and above the music we make, probably the thing that I'm most proud of being a part is the creation of The Fishtank because it's more now than just a place to promote Tinyfish. It's a place where people who are genuinely into their music can come together to support the genre, each other and most importantly, do silly things. Never underestimate the power of silly.

If you look at playing prog as purely a means to further your ambitions, you're probably going to fail. If you are playing prog because you just love making the music, I think you'll have a better chance than most.

For an example of an individual who obviously loves what he does, I give you Matt Stevens. He throws himself totally into the music that interests him and in doing so, he and his band are beginning to make big waves on the scene. I like going to see him because he has something different to give and he always looks as if he's getting into it. In short, he's worth going out of an evening to pay money and witness on stage.

We actively encourage other bands to promote their shows here because we want to contribute to the genre in any way we can and in that spirit, I really do consider everyone who posts here a friend of mine and a co-worker in prog who’s opinion I value and trust.

Except for JamesA of course.  ;D

Of course they'll ignore the masses.  The first thing is to work out the headliners and then back fill.  Some of the suggestions, although good, would be financially not viable.  So, I would expect a lot of British bands with possibly one or two from the near continent - France or Germany maybe.

What bands have people been suggesting that you all find so dull, then? I'm just going to put all my trust in his Lord Twangship and wait for him to deliver unto us.  :)  I'm not suggesting Unto Us, by the way, but not because I think poorly of them, which I don't, but because that's not what I meant and I didn't want any tosser picking up on it and using it against me.  :P  *deep breath*

Anyway, as UB said, hanging out with the Fishtank always makes for a good time, so as long as all you tossers turn up, a splendid time is guaranteed for all.  :)

That's only because I didn't notice that they were there 3 times, for example Panic Room were there at least 5 times but I noticed so edited it so there wasn't repetition

There are a lot of good bands on that list, but you almost have to get bands who want to play for you. Personally, I'd like to see Ars Nova, but like many of the foreign bands on the list, they'd be a non-starter. And Twang's experience of US prog bands doesn't seem to have been too good recently.

It'll all come down to money in the end. 

That and who has drawn a really good crowd at the Peel.  Which is why I would suggest any two of Frost*, Pendragon, Threshold & Arena.  Below that it could really be anyone... Panic Room, Maschine, Haken...

I've seen Pendragon headlining festivals.

This whole band selection is a difficult thing and I would not want it to be my responsibility - I was really not that bothered when I could not get to Cambridge this year because the lineup was less than inspiring, although there were a handful of excellent bands on.

Mike Keneally Band & Special guests Godsticks.

http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/user/?region=gb_london&query=detail&event=528568

Long acclaimed as one of the world's most creative and intense guitar and keyboard players, Mike Keneally's talents as a vocalist, songwriter, arranger, producer and multi- instrumentalist are nearly unequalled in rock music.

Keneally has released 20 albums of his original music since 1992, and has built a body of work of remarkable inventiveness and originality.

Keneally played in Frank Zappa's last touring band, performing as a vocalist, guitarist and keyboardist. He's appeared on many Zappa albums, is currently a touring member of Dethklok (as a guitarist) and the Joe Satriani Band (as a keyboardist), and has also recorded or performed with Robert Fripp, Wayne Kramer,Kevin Gilbert, Steve Vai, The Loud Family, Henry Kaiser, Michael Manring, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Andy
Prieboy, Mullmuzzler, The Persuasions and many others.

The current Mike Keneally Band – a quintet which includes drummer Joe Travers (Zappa Plays Zappa), bassist Bryan Beller (Steve Vai, Dethklok), and guitarist Rick Musallam (Ben Taylor, Byrd York)

Hear Mike's music online anytime at www.radiokeneally.com

GODSTICKS

Since hitting the music scene in 2009, Godsticks have caused a bit of a stir. Self-styled
purveyors of progressive rock/pop. With major supports with 'The Pineapple Thief', The Aristocrats under their belts the long awaited new album is due very soon. The rhythm section are also in Prog legends Magenta all joined musical genius Darran Charles!

Phew see, I may have been quiet on here but now you know why.

Oh by the way, I'm getting the team back together as we prepare to announce CELEBR8 FEST 2013! NEWS VERY SOON.

All the very best,

Jon xxxxx

I'd like to see Enochian Theory, but I'm supposed to be supporting one of our local promoters. She's been mad enough to book Uli Jon Roth to play at the Furnace club in Swindon. I'd like to see UJR, he's doing a mixed Scorpions/Hendrix set I believe, but I'd also like the promoter to at least break even (her track record isn't great on making money from gigs).

And I can tell you that it's FREE ENTRY!!!

The Green room for artists is no longer a work in progress. It now has a BIG comfy sofa, comfy chairs, a fridge, a micro wave, a tele and DVD player. The tele can only play DVD'S but they have DVD's as well. Someone did put a couple of naughty ones in for *hits an giggles. It's really rather spiffing. ;D

It was a good evening. Alan Reed was in excellent form and played a blinder. Oddly enough it was the first time I've heard Sanctuary since I saw Pallas perform it at the Hammy Odeon in the 80s. His performance at the Peel and the material from his new album prove that he is a genuinely talented git. Top marks to a guy who has something special to offer any audience he encounters.

I just wish the soundman had been up to the highly complex task of being able to mix two vocals, a guitar and a keyboard.  ::)

Galahad hold a real place in my heart. They may not be the most celebrated prog band in the world considering they are one of the few bands that have held it together and produced albums over the years through thick and thin but they really give it everything when they perform. I always try to check them out when they play in my neck of the woods. I have such a lot of time for the guys in the band and it was a set which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Post by: Mouse on September 17, 2012, 11:20:38 PM
I had a great time. Unfortunately, having recently had that horrible cold, then spending all day travelling on three hours of sleep, then standing in the sauna that was the Peel's main room meant I had to have a little break outside during Alan Reed's set. But I finally got to see him live! I missed him at Mattfest and Celebr8, so was starting to get annoyed with the constant near-misses. I'm so glad I caught most of his set there, though. The man really can sing and he handles his guitars very well indeed. I had a good, long chat with him afterwards with Robert and he's a lovely chap as well. My reputation from here precedes me, though - he knew who Mouse was and now he knows who I am.  :D  I came away with both of his CDs and can't wait to give them a spin.

Galahad weren't for me, I'm afraid. Another band who I respect for being very good at what they do, but were too much like a sledgehammer on my ears. So, I spent the rest of the evening chatting with Twitch, Bo, Bert, Nellie, Paul, Helen (Purrdey and Ash during the break between bands), the afforementioned Alan and Robert, and one Clive Nolan. I asked him about 'next steps' I could take for my music work and was pleased to find that he suggested what I've actually been doing for the last three years.  ;D  He's a nice guy, too! Everyone in prog is so nice...

The Galahad bass player looked exactly like Hudson, Kryten's replacement from Red Dwarf III. Scary.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: RobH on September 18, 2012, 06:15:58 AM
I agree about Galahad - which was why I wasn't there. 

I thought Galahad's new bass player was Mark Spencer.  At least, that what Alan and Mark said at the Magenta gig the week before.


Title: Re: HOUSE OF PROGRESSION SHOWS.
Post by: Trace on September 18, 2012, 06:30:06 AM
I enjoyed Galahad at Winter's End, but not enough to travel 90 odd miles.
They are a good album band though.
On a slightly different subject, I shall hopefully have a different car soon. This should make a Peel trip easier, now just to pick one tp attend.

There aren't many to choose from at the Peel, and two of those are on a Friday evening.

Sat 13Oct - Jadis
Fri 2Nov - IOEarth & The Tangent (which clashes with TF&TD)
Fri 7Dec - Maiden United

I have tickets for the last two.

I also realise that I'm off work next week.  There is a small chance that I might get up to the Unicorn on Tuesday - this is the day that I'm flying back in from Germany.

Certainly a mixed bag, I guess the same could be said for most years. 2013 looks like being another year of transition, as we will probably be trying to buy a house. Oh for a consolidated year, we may have to wait a while for that. There is the Marillion Convention, Rush tour, Celebr8.2 and I hope Summers End, but I am not confident that I will see people nearly as much as I'd like next year.

You can always pay via PayPal on your phone.
I've looked into taking cards at gigs but it works out quite expensive and because I don't go out "live" very often, the cost isn't justified.
You can get mobile card readers but they're for iphone and androids and I have a flippin' BlackBerry.
