I seem to be going back in time for my music. Today I would like to feature English Prog Rock band Curved Air.
On Wednesday my friend sent me an email to say they are playing a Prog Rock festival in England next August.
So thanks to good old You Tube I have been playing Curved Air videos. I was surprised that I recognised one of their tracks and I found a few more that are great.
Some one in one of the comments under the videos said that Prog music is unfinished Rock music. I think it's not a bad attempt at describing the music genre but I would say it's more than that. Prog Rock is art and takes you somewhere else!
I love the hairstyles, psychedelic backdrops, 'Orange' speakers/amplifiers and the enigmatic and beautiful female lead singer.
She reminds me of the lead singer of Jefferson Airplane. Remember 'White Rabbit'? Perhaps she was the person who inspired Kate Bush?
Anyone seen Curved Air? I would imagine Rachel or Yorkshire Pudding will have?
I am really thinking of going to see them next year. Hawkwind are also playing who I have never seen but I have seen Hawklords and people say to me: "If you have seen Hawklords you have seen Hawkwind".
Enjoy the video.
England must be the capital of the world for Prog Rock? America, Canada and Germany and several other countries have also produced some great bands down the years. I still have Saga, April Wine and Styx on my Prog/Heavy Rock to see bucket list. What about ye? Ye? I have lived too long in Ireland and picked up some of the twang!
