Welcome to Progressiverock.com. Work has begun on extending the current timeline and I'm busy adding to the discography, rounding out the "classic" era and beyond. Thanks for visiting! Have a suggestion? Let me know!
Nice clip of Finnish band Wigwam at Liisankadun studio recorded for Pop-Liisa, TV1 25.11.1976. Tracks are "Eddie And The Boys | Simple Human Kindness | Colossus | A Better Hold (And A Little View) | Grass For Blades". Presenter Vesa-Matti Loiri gives opening words, introduces the band in between the songs, and recites 'Syyslaulu' ('Tombstone Valentine' in Finnish)."

"Some big news: I will be joining drummer/vocalist Simon Collins (son of legendary Genesis drummer/vocalist Phil Collins) as co-drummer/keyboardist on a world tour promoting the release of his new band Sound of Contact 's debut album, "Dimensionaut". Also in the band are guitarist John Wesley (Fish, Porcupine Tree), keyboardist Dave Kerzner and bassist Matt Dorsey.

Reporting from ultimateclassicrock (the Hawkwind footage was restored as well!):
"The Atomic Sunrise festival was held in March 1970 at the legendary Roundhouse club in England and featured a number of the underground rock scene’s most shining lights. The event featured David Bowie, Hawkwind, and Genesis, among others. All these acts were in their infancy, and that’s what makes the event so interesting. Fortunately, the festival was captured on film and now, after over 40 years, the film has been unearthed.
