Is it Frost* tracks only?

Not officially, no  ;)

Actually, it's an errr, interesting collection thus far.

So, any way, please please PLEASE vote or otherwise I'll be forced to make it up and award the prizes to myself  :D  :D

Xmas as in Xmas...

X as in... 10

Yes, vote NOW for your top 3 prog songs of ALL time. We'll take the votes and by the wonders of EXCEL spreadsheetery produce a run down of the top 10 greatest prog song evah.


Not only that, but, a lucky voter will win tickets to Celebr8.2 (where I believe some band called Frost* are playing) and as a runner-up prize, why not have a voucher worth £25 to spend on your heart's desire at The Merch Desk.

Vote and may all your progmasses come true.

Mike is right, and a couple of of people have reported an issue, but I'm kinda stuck with it now.

Send me a PM and all will be fine  :D  :D In fact, anyone can send me a PM if they'd rather not vote online

Announcements / Dead Nobodies #15.1 - Genesis Revisited II
« on: November 08, 2012, 04:00:58 PM »
Ahoy there !!

This month we’re taking a look at the new Steve Hackett album, Genesis Revisited II. It’s attracted lots and lots of attention and is worth a serious look. In the quest, I’m joined by James “Gigging Forever” Hendry who had the good fortune, or just blind luck, to get an invite to the launch party for the album. So, we get all the gossip from the event, plus our considered, fair and entirely balanced views on the album. Errrmm….

But that’s not all… in a shorter show than usual (production problems, should you ask…) we’ve also covered a few of the traditional bases for which Dead Nobodies is renowned the world over. This month we have new music from Threshold, Neil Morse, Steve Wilson, Saga, Rival Sons, Galahad plus of course a wealth of the Genesis Revisited Stuff, plus some oldies but goodies in the shape of Amplifier, Roger Waters and the Jupiter Society.

Download details from here

But wait ! Even THAT’S not all !! As we’re now formally on the glide path to Xmas, may I draw your attention to the Dead Nobodies XmasX poll – a proven, scientifically accurate way of discovering the 10 greatest prog rock tracks of all time. Without any doubt, this is definitive; and I will accept no argument otherwise  All you need to do is submit your vote for your fave Top 3 tracks OF ALL TIME and not only will you be part of probably the greatest experiment in polling history but you could well win one of three, sorry two,  massive prizes on offer to 2 lucky voters namely:-

1st Prize – A weekend ticket to Celebr8.2
2nd Prize – £25 voucher to spend on your heart’s desire at The Merch Desk

Get voting now at and the tell your friends to vote !! Once all the votes are in, we’ll build a show to be broadcast sometime between Xmas and New Year. It’ll be fun… we may even do it LIVE !!!

OK, that’s it for now. As there was so much stuff left over from this show, we may do another one in a couple of weeks.

Till then



Ashes – Threshold
Fema Camp – Killing Joke
Weathering Sky – Neal Morse
Keep On Swinging – Rival Sons
Love Bites (So Do I) – Halestorm
Luminol- Steven Wilson
Till The Well Runs Dry – Saga
Rescue & Resurrection – Jupiter Society

Thanks for your words Sir  :D

Ooh!! from the legend that is Bert......buying Purple aged 6 or 7  :lol:

All true. Going to play some stuff from the Re-Machined Machine Head Classic Rock special I've just got
Does that just make it Purple's Head?

It's actually quite good, outstanding in places. There is a version of Highway Star on there by Steve Vai, Glenn Hughes and Chad Smith which is the only cover I've ever heard that approaches the energy of the Made in Japan version - it's simply staggering. And that's taking into account that the OTHER version is by Chickenfoot, which by all accounts is pretty much above standard  :D
