I love Frank Zappa. My BIG FOUR influences are Miles Davis, John Coltrane, John McLaughlin and Frank Zappa. The most important prog bands for me were Yes and King Crimson. I like to use complex rhythmic structures as a basis for composition (straight from McLaughlin and Zappa) and 15/16 is interesting as it can sound like 5/8 or 5/16 or even 3/4 and the beginning of this track really pushes that concept.

Special mention to Tom Clarke-Hill on double bass. His music CV is nuts, played with everyone from Dolly Parton and Frank Sinatra to George Shearing and Art Farmer. He is also a voice actor and did the voice for Tony the Tiger (who ate Frosties!!!) and he's in Fantastic Beasts too!

There was some video of Jem and myself recording drums for The Dividing Line up at Kidderminster College...

I think the Dividing Line is my favourite Frost track, it does everything all in one track...
Friends Of Frost* / 'So'Far' New album by Andy Edwards
February 26, 2017, 09:57:31 AM
Hello Frosties

I have new album out on bandcamp entitled 'So Far'

The album is basically one track that is half an hour long with some outtakes and other stuff added. I would describe it as progressive free jazzfusion with ambient elecronica dub tendencies. A lot of it is in 15/16 so any fans of this time signature will be really happy.

My bandcamp stuff is basically stuff from my vaults and music that has very little commercial potential. This album is in the latter category.

Currently, in the real world, I'm playing for the folk rock band Quill. Quill have been going for 40 years and have a fantastic following. I replaced Bev Bevan in the band so yet more Frost/ELO connections! We will be playing Cropready festival this year. We have a bunch of gigs elsewhere too.

I have been working on the music for a play (This album came out of the sessions for that). It's called 'The Dancing Club' and we hope to be getting funding to tour it.

I have also been doing some informal gigs with Robert Plant which has been awesome. Great to jam with him again!

On another note, I met up with Dec Burke last week, his new album 'Book of Secrets' is really fantastic with some great playing and monster choruses...what a singer! Anyone going to see him tonight?

All the best

Hi everyone.

Here is a 55 minute interview I did for The Progmeister on a show called 'The Lost Art'
Lots of stuff about KIAMA but also lots of talk about Frost.
Great to hear John Mitchell, ELO, KIAMA and Frost all on the same show too...can you spot all the links?

All the best

Hi Frosties

We have recently released a new promo by my band KIAMA. It features a song called 'Tears' which features a pretty insane guitar solo by Luke

We will be releasing a promo of a new song next week too.

All the best

Thanks for all the positive comments, if you pop over to the facebook page you can keep in touch with us there and if you join the club you are going to get far more than just the album, you get access to a special members section which features exclusive content.
The full version of 'Cold Black Heart' is up there at the moment.

Here is some stuff about KIAMA in case your interested.

Luke plays guitar for The Tangent and has a great band called Maschine; if you are Frost fans (and you all are!) then check em out. He is also IMO the best guitarist on the UK Prog scene at the moment.
Dylan was in The Reasoning never really sung in that band. When Rob and I put the band together we wanted a front man and Dylan really fits the bill as you will see when the video footage starts coming out.

The album was recorded at Real World and we recorded it all at the same time, face to face without the use of clicks. It was written over about a year and we have been mixing for about a year, it's been a huge project and we made a enough for a double album.
The material ranges from out and out rockers to a few ten minute epics with influences from Zep, Pink Floyd, Jeff Buckley, Radiohead as well as the usual Prog influences

And just for reference, we actually have two Welshmen in the band!!!

Thanks for listening and purchasing. I have put some video explaining the album and hope to cover every track on there. I have been going into some of the guitar solo approaches too.
Thanks again!
