It's all prog rock, all the time! Giant art rock nerds Jeremy Parish, James Eldred, and Elliot Long gather together to hash out the art of progressive rock. From its roots in the ’60s to the best modern interpretations of the form, the only rule here is that each episode fills at least one full side of an LP and contains plenty of pretentious solos.

We're going prog-adjacent again to talk about one of our favorite bands, the German electronic music pioneers Tangerine Dream! Elliot and I think that everyone should listen to Tangerine Dream, but with literally hundreds of albums, it can be a bit daunting to get into them. So we thought it would be best to share some recommendations for those who…
 
Last month, we covered Pink Floyd, who are probably the most successful progressive rock act of all-time. This month we are discussing two bands who are decidedly not some of the biggest acts the genre had to offer; Mythos and Ekseption. But while you've probably never heard of these European obscurities, both Elliot and James think that both bands…
 
Pink Floyd started as a psychedelic rock group, and were one of the most important bands of London's underground scene. But after Syd Barrett left the group, the band struggled to find their identity before eventually solidifying themselves as one of the greatest rock bands of all-time. The albums they recorded during this period might not all be g…
 
Before Vangelis was known the world over for his scores to films like Blade Runner and Chariots of Fire, he was a member of Aphrodite's Child. The group started out as a rather by-the-numbers psychedelic rock act, but the band went full prog for their final record, a sprawling concept album about the literal end of the world called 666. Elliot and …
 
The plan was to cover Manfred Mann's Earth Band in the same episode as Supertramp, but we talked so much about Supertramp that we couldn't fit Manfred in. And it turns out that we had even more to say about Manfred Mann (the man), Manfred Mann (the band) and Manfred Mann's (the man) Earth Band, so it was a good thing that we dedicated a whole episo…
 
Elliot and James are joined today by very special guest Tom Brislin! Having toured with the likes of Meat Loaf, Yes, Camel and Renaissance, Tom is now the keyboardist for the legendary prog rock band Kansas! Tom shares stories about his times with these bands, life on the road as a working musician, and what it's been like being a newer member of o…
 
The original plan here was for Elliot and James to each talk about one album that skirts the line between being prog and not prog, but they both love Supertramp so much that they decided to save the other album for another day. Breakfast In America is a fantastic record! Supertramp are a great band! These are facts that seem to be lost to the annal…
 
It's safe to say that without keyboards, progressive rock doesn't exist. And while there have been many different types of keyboards, pianos, and synths that have contributed to the prog rock sound, in this episode we cover the three biggest ones: the Hammond organ, the Mellotron, and early Moogs. Sorry ARP fans, maybe next time.…
 
Special guest Dr. Sparkle of Chrontendo fame joins us today to discuss artists who either only released one album, or only one album of any regard. While the past few episodes have featured albums that maybe not all of us were keen on, this episode features three stone-cold prog classics: Affinity's self-titled record, First Base by Babe Ruth, and …
 
Jon Anderson parted ways with Yes sometime in the early 2000s, but the band has continued without him in the years since, with three LPs and one EP - but should they have? Elliot and James go album by album and parse out which Jon Anderson-less Yes releases are worth your time, and which ones are most certainly not.…
 
This is a backer request from "Itsumi Mario," who wanted us to go in-depth on the bonkers 2001 debut by the Mars Volta, De-Loused in the Comatorium. Despite definitely not being in the wheelhouse of neither Jeremy nor Elliot, we find a lot to talk about with this one; the Mars Volta are a lot of things, but "boring" certainly isn't one of them. I'm…
