Stick Men, Prog Noir
Their recent album Prog Noir (SMN1611) gives us an excellent opportunity to hear the band in full stride, with complex and startling instrumental togetherness, compositions-songs of a very high caliber, and a vocal-instrumental iconoclasm that goes past Crimson heights to a new feeling of being AHEAD.
It's a monument in the new prog developments and a solid gasser to hear.
Do not miss this!
Oh, and MoonJune Records, which is closely associated with this band and recording, has put together Fool of Music, a major 2.5 hour anthology of Markus Reuter music over the years. It's a free download. Go to www.markus-reuter-moonjune.bandcamp.com to get it. Very cool stuff!
