Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Okay: Pink Floyd went from being an eccentric painter's band, to an architectural student drop-out's band, to a male model's band. The only thing wrong w/ 'Dark Side' is over-exposure - a victim of its' own - perhaps a little misunderstood? - greatness.

Rabbit is right. The only thing wrong with Dark Side is overexposure. It was played to death.

Avatar Fri. 7/3/15 1:49pm pim:

the issue with anything by pink floyd's second phase was self exposing its own ideas, becoming perhaps memorable, however unbearable after the very first listens. ummagumma was a great album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/3/15 1:49pm Mike East:

Dark Side was an important record in my musical upbringing. Its in the category with a lot of other great music that I don't NEED to listen to ever again cuz its all stored in my brain. However, I don't mind hearing it, when I do, and I do like hearing songs like that in a new context such as on this program.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/3/15 1:50pm Goyim in the AM:

The biggest problem with Pink Floyd and other prog bands is folks not wanting to associate with non-discerning Pink Floyd and Prog fans. The Floyd at their worst is garbage (to say nothing of the worst of Yes, Genesis, King Crimson) and the best has always been transcendent genius. But how can you be a, say, Yes fan if that means liking Drama or Union, even if you adore (as I do) Close to the Edge?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/3/15 1:54pm Goyim in the AM:

I dig what I dig and make no secret of it -- but I live in Europe, where DUDES are FANS (especially prog fans), and saying you a lot of King Crimson an awful lot can get you trapped in some boring monologues.

The worst of King Crimson is one song per album (except Red), with the ratio getting worse after THRAAK.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/3/15 1:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

King Crimson garbage? Some maybe not their best - but they never had an MTV phase. 'The Wall' is great, but somewhat lugubrious & over-blown (& even more over-exposed) - but even this feeds back into its' theme. 'Dark Side' - in itself - I don't find much reason to critique. 'Exposes themselves' is close to the point... Citing 'Ummagumma' makes the point there is more to it than Syd & Post-Syd Floyd - there's between Syd & Pre-DarkSide Floyd too. Blixa Bargeld makes the point that Floyd has been been critical in bringing the masses up to speed w/ the Avant Guarde, & should get cred for it.

Syd was @ the top-level Creative Geniuses - but Waters being an architectural student had a good side: amazingly well-constructed albums.
Crimson making videos & using Belew's Pop aptitudes doesn't qualify as an 'MTV period' in the Genesis (or even Yes - who @ least weren't to bad @ it) sense.
Well said UM re 'Prog Continuum'; I'm still getting used to the idea that people categorize Styx &/or Kansas as 'Prog'! Conclusion: Good & poop, innovators & formulaics like any other Genre...

Since Prog emphasizes / values Musicianship & Neal Big Heavy Concepts - over Songwriting &/or the short simple adrenaline ruch, &/or more 'direct' sentiments - then in these directions will the Genres strengths & weaknesses tend to lie.
I maintain however that the Ramones are Art Rock too: Pop Art of the highest & most brilliant & in fact well-informed & aware order - to rank w/ Mickey Mouse & the Tomato Soup can. Highly & specifically designed...

Yeah, Rev, I'm not sure I agree -- at least in the music that I love that is called prog, that's not always the case. There's often insanely whistlable melodies and heavily rocking riffs, and sometimes the parts are played with wild imperfection. I do agree that what you're describing is what is generically meant by prog -- so maybe that's the difference between me, a dude who likes a lot of prog stuff, and a prog fan, who needs the musicianship and big concepts to feel on board.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/3/15 2:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Well - it's like saying Punk is boring because it's just three chords & barking vocals, or Classical is just people playing scales quickly & precisely. The key word is 'tends'. Once you have a Genre that can be @ all defined as a Form - then there are the possibilities of being 'Formulaic' - &/or of being Creative - &/or Relevant (however we define those!) - w/in that Form. & there are things that do not fall easily into one Genre &/or Form...

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/3/15 2:41pm Goyim in the AM:

Seems to me that if the folks who lead you to the definition of the genre are all better than the folks who follow that definition clearly, you may have goofed on the definition (i.e. what made good prog bands progressive in the upper case and lower case senses is not the formal stuff you posted that I originally objected to, even if that is what followers of the genre tend to see best).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/3/15 2:42pm Uncle Michael:

People that stake their life on this or that form, so to speak...tend to look kind of mockable to me.

Or, analogy: Since Jazz was a blend of schooled European & soulful Blues - it's always a question of how that works: "That Jazz player is technically great - but he can't play no Blues, man"...

In fact if there's ANY band that was the common ancestor of all that was Prog, it was The Nice.
There maybe no style or genre of rock that gets more manngled and misrepresented than Prog when people try to talk about or classsify it. Or imitate it. One absolutely essential key to Prog is that was originally music made by English musicians who had come up in the pop scene in England, who loved catchy, danceable American pop songs and had schooled themselves in those styles hoping to make a living at it. After exploring the freedoms (and excesses) of psychedelic music, they went back to a more focussed or disciplined approach to song writing. Sorry, but Chris Squire's passing has got me a bit worked up about all this stuff again...

@UM: On the other hand (& there's always two):
I used to define myself as an Eclectic against the Purists : I reasoned that all the Greatest had broad tastes & big ears (Wynton Marsalis: 'A Musician hears something good - whatever it is - & just wants to play it!')
- but the socio-cultural conditions got so bad - I came to appreaciate the Purists who are totally focused & dedicated to one Type of music. They know what their own tastes are, they are knowledgeable - & they preserve it. It's hard to have Eclectic tastes & dig the best of every Genre if those Genres don't survive!...

sure, I can appreciate genre purists, but man, they can be frustrating to talk to.

Pet Sounds IS Prog. Brian was turned on by what he heard coming from London, as they had been turned on by him.

I'm not a musician, so playing just one thing isn't a consideration. Listening to just one thing isn't an option...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/3/15 3:01pm Uncle Michael:

I'm grateful you all spent time listening to the show today. Thank you all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/3/15 3:03pm Mike East:

thanks for making it enjoyable, UM. Nice to have a slow friday that I can actually pay closer attention to what you do. Thanks for the interesting comments, all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/3/15 3:04pm Uncle Michael:

Love this Hudson tune! In fact, I put it on my premium last year! Been enjoying the show, just not in front of the computer for most of it. Have a good weekend and enjoy Chicago next week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/3/15 3:13pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks Evan...when that show didn't bring you out of the weeds, I figured you were out and about for the holiday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/3/15 3:14pm Mike East:

I don't know why I've always dug the Swingle Singers, it makes no sense.
