Bands from my younger days that you typically don’t hear a lot about these days 
 and then suddenly 
.

Nektar

Reformed Nektar launch Kickstarter for new studio album. – without Roy? It won’t be a ‘Tab In The Ocean’ 😊

Mark-Almond

Remember that UMG fire in 2008 – turn out MarkAlmond’s back catalogue was destroyed in it. – I know – so did a lot of other artists (including another favorite Colosseum), but Mark-Almond were special to me, so I’m taking it personally.

The Enid

A new album – with Robert John Godfrey at the helm 
 surprising – given that he was diagnosed with Alzheimers three years ago and handed over the control of the band to others 
 still – need to visit this when available and give it a listen.

As a long time fan of Nice, I am surprised that this one got away from me at the time, but is now available through Burning Shed.

Remastered 3CD set featuring the one and only Refugee album from 1974.

Formed in 1973 by Lee Jackson and Brian Davison – both former members of The Nice – alongside future Yes keyboard virtuoso Patrick Moraz, Refugee quickly established itself as a Progressive powerhouse.

Featuring the studio album and two complete concert recordings, this 2019 edition of Refugee provides a dazzling document of the brilliant but short-lived group.

Pre-order for 30th August release.

Then again … maybe not!

Not to be confused with Public Service Broadcasting – a truly excellent band if you have never tried them out …

No, I’m talking about Burning Shed out of Norwich, England. They seem to have grown to be the definitive source of Progressive Music, providing easy access to new and fresh materials as well as lots of back catalogue.

Today’s Newsletter reveals a back catalogue that includes

  • Tony Banks
  • Steve Hillage
  • Soft Machine
  • Hawklords
  • Bill Bruford
  • King Crimson
  • Marillion
  • Strawbs

… to name but a few. In my world there’s not much more that you need.

đŸŽ¶ Reading the @joejenett post on Bowie my mind drifted and a question formed.

What was the first album by Bowie that you heard that made you sit up, wake up and go explore the back catalogue.

Or were you in from that very first album ‘David Bowie’?

Not sure how many people receive the InsideOutMusic Newsletter, but this fresh in today ….
