New Single – Warm Space II

Warm Space II

Warm Space II, the companion piece / sequel to, er, Warm Space I is out now. This is an epic 9+ minute song in a traditional prog rock style, but with a modern edge. Lots of guitar on this one plus some super cool synths and what-not. Be sure to …

Blinded by Time – Coming Soon

I finished the remaster of our third album ‘Blinded by Time‘ yesterday. I must say, I was very surprised by this one; more so than the previous two. I need to gather my thoughts and write some notes about it. Apart from a few cheesy synth sounds, this is a …

Spock’s Beard – Come on Down, the Price is Right!

Spock's Beard - Live at Sea (2014)

What’s this? Another live album from Spock’s Beard? Yes indeed, but this time featuring erstwhile leader Neal Morse on a couple of tracks.

However, I am mentioning this album for another reason altogether! Well, two reasons:

  1. It’s on Bandcamp, which means I don’t need to put up with poor quality MP3s from the likes of Amazon / Google | iTunes etc
  2. It’s being sold for a sensible price: $7.00

This is a great deal. Some bands seen to think they can get away with charging more than the cost of the actual CD! Ridiculous.

So, kudos to the Beard. I pre-ordered my copy and am pleased to say it is excellent. I will likely review it when I can.
