I would love to hear some Blackfield and Porcupine Tree on Sirius.

I'd also like to get lesser known bands like Salem Hill on the radio for everyone to hear. (shamless plug, www.salemhill.com).

Why is that a shameless plug?

The JDP Progrevolution is underway.

Sirius will take notice. Make no mistake about it.

To get a single prog station would be special. Of course there are a multitude of prog sub-genres, but that's fine with me. I tend towards the symphonic prog, but I'm OK with just about all prog. But I would want a mix of newer artists along with the old groups that helped get it started. Prog never really went away, it's just underground now and internet radio is doing a great job of getting the new stuff out to the fans. Let's hear some lesser known groups like Salem Hill, Glass Hammer, Mostly Autumn, Cryptic Vision, Magenta, along with some better known groups like Spock's Beard, Porcupine Tree, Flower Kings, Dream Theater, Marilliion, and the classic proggers like Yes, ELP, Pink Floyd, Rush, Triumvirat. Give me a mix like that, keep it fresh, and I'll never change the channel.

Since becomming a sirius sub I have listened to lots of music I never would have. After reading through this thread you folks have got me interested in learning more about this "progrock" of which you speak...I do recognize some of the bands you list....dreamtheater, genesis, tool, pinkfloyd etc. What I am having trouble with is the definition. I realize in our society sometimes in order to comprehend things we all feel the need to "pigeonhole" things...I guess I'm asking what makes a band progressive? Would queensryche be a prog band? Does the length of a song make it proggresive...like jam band...the grateful dead? Maybe you could define progressive for us layfolk? Thanks...

Gald you asked... Prog is very complex form of music and it's a very diverse genre. Most prog songs tend to be long because of the complexity of the songs. Prog can have some "Jam" elements in it, but it's not a must. It doesn't get much radio play through traditional means because of the length of songs and entire albums can evolve from a single theme. I like the quote on here of "the thinking man's music," I've also heard it called "art rock." I prefer newer "Progressive Metal." (Bands like Porcupine Tree, Isis, and Tool, but I listen to some older prog rock too...ie Pink Floyd.)

www.progarchives.com
www.porcupinetree.com

Don't down load MP3s to get a feel for a prog band...go to band websites and get a feel for what a band it about. If you like the content on their website, go buy their CDs it's the only way to really get a feel for prog.

As mentioned, prog rock is "a very diverse genre", which makes it difficult to label. I think that is part of the image problem prog rock has as our society, as also mentioned, needs to "pigeonhole" things. Prog can be influenced by so many other forms of music that any label is often in the eye, or ear as it were, of the beholder.

The internet is currently where prog rock lives and there are a number of resources to explore. Search on "prog rock" or "progressive rock" in any search engine and you'll get hits to start exploring. In addition to the links already mentioned, some others are...

www.progrock.com
www.progradio.net
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progressive_rock (gives a fairly decent overview)

An internet radio site that I enjoy is www.progpositivity.com

As River_King mentioned, check out www.progarchives.com . It has the best definition of what progressive rock is I've ever seen ( http://www.progarchives.com/Progressive-rock.asp ).

In fact, I'm using that defintion in a speech I'm writing for my speech class, the speech is titled A History and Definition of Progressive Rock (working title, maybe something a bit more goofy or add a sub-title like "Or how I learned to love the atomic soundwave").

I'll post the speech on the net once I finish writing it. Hopefully I'll get an A too.


Also, the Salem Hill shameless plug (www.salemhill.com) is a bit of a joke as I know the band fairly well. Carl Groves is my "International Popstar", it's a bit of an inside joke. Story is that I used to be one of their youngest fans and went to several of their shows (oh yeah, 20 now, had to about about 12 when I first saw them). My dad would hang out with them afterwards so he got fairly close. In fact, Carl sang a beautiful song he wrote (I believe) at my dad's wedding.

So, if we get a prog station I will call every day and ask for some Salem Hill.

Cool story. One correction. it's WHEN we get a prog station, not if.
