There's that magazine named prog.might have a decent article or two. I'm sure there are books though.

I was introduced to this guy yesterday. He comes under the "prog" label apparently. He also appears to be really famous. He has the amazing guitarist Guthrie Govan playing on some of music. Check out this lovely video

Soft Machine's Bundles album featuring the late, great Allan Holdsworth on guitar.


This is probably more jazz rock / fusion than typical prog.

Yes, the prog people love him. He's worked Marillion quite a lot, Fish too. He recently remixed Marillion's proggy concept album Brave (1994). He also does a few of these 5:1 Mixes that the prog audiophiles love.

His mix of the first King Crimson album is excellent apart from the fact that he chops about 3 minutes off of "Moonchild" for no discernible reason. Maybe it was to please @Shaney? as to make the song and the album shorter?

Relatively new to Slapp Happy and absolutely loving them. Got the comp Acnalbasac Noom last year. So many winning tunes.

Blue Eyed William, Casablanca Moon, The Drum, Charlie 'n Charlie...not to mention Blegvald's sublime and joyous Karen which would cheer up a stone.

Krause's voice is extremely distinctive. Joyous is the word for the happy slappers.

Picked up a solo Peter Blegveld there cheap the other day... Must slapp it on the laptop. He's a bleeding charmer.

Been lucky to see Chris Cutler with Yumi Hara doing the Canterbury songbook a few times... Last time with Henry Cow's Tim Hodgkinson too. Hara gives it a good fist, but it's really all about Cutler behind the kit. Cutler is a very pointy character. Told me I was "up a tree" in relation to my views on cinema these days. Will go through you for fun, but ultimately a good egg.

Never actually listened properly to Van Der Graaf or Hamill.

Anyone for Richard Pinhas or his old band Heldon? Saw him with Tatsuya Yoshida rip it apart there some time ago. Barnstorming. Heldon are getting the reissue treatment too.

with this thread resurfacing, coincidentally came across what seem like a couple of decent books online over the weekend after reading about one of them in the liner notes of a reissue of 70s welsh folk rockers Bran's first LP. fucking pricey though.
