Look out for early Horslips too, they are more Irish folk Rock with a hint of Prog.

Hehehe. Just put a couple ('Tain' and 'Invasions') in my second 'shopping basket' for the day! Seems to be right up my alley. Thanks.

Woot, another fan and they have reformed check them out that facebook thingy

Unfortunate cup of tea is one of my fave album titles of all time, but The Tain is an awesome LP.

I just can't come at that celtic/folk stuff.

Fair enough. Like yourself I don't listen to any lyrics (as you mentioned in another thread (I thought that I was the only person that never knew a word)) - so its something to do with the structure, timing, key, intertwining of themes or whatever, that appeals. The flipside of my coin is that I can't connect with blues based music, or jazz and their derivatives. Anyway its just a matter of personal preference - but its still curious how the brain can 'like' something and not something else that isn't too dissimilar.

Batty and Progladyte, you have got some serious taste going on there, kudos to you both.

Be Bop Deluxe barely made a ripple this side of the globe, mores the pity, as the great Kiwi bassist, Charlie Tumahai was a key member of Melbourne band, HEALING FORCE. All their albums are worth seeking out, but I recommend the LIVE IN THE AIR AGE set and DRASTIC PLASTIC.

Nice heads up for Phil Collins there, with the BRAND X albums being amongst the best of the era.

Aechmea, let us know what you get, you know we are interested. There are some great reissues coming out on Lemon, Cherry Red and the Esoteric imprints. Are you going for new stuff, or revisiting past loves?

Rock on Progsters.

GRACIOUS! - I had completely forgotten that album. Wow!

...... And VGG, well those guys were just bonkers, in the best way. I still cannot listen to GOD BLUFF completely sober- scares the 'oomscow' out of me still.

JJ , I suspect there is no one like you on the Otway Coast, keep up the good work.
