    Mollie:

    you are, of course, correct about #63.

    I am relying on my memory and you might be able to understand how I got things mixed-up here:

    The Deacon was thinking it was MAN ,not Manfred MANN.

    Specifically, I thought it was the Man lp, "Be good To Yourself at Least Once a Day" because this one fabulously opens up into a MAP of Wales.

    Aye.

    It takes a real Prog Masterman to admit that - on occasion - he can be in error.

    And it takes a real Prog Masterman to admit that - quite often - you can be in error...

    There is a potential connection though.
    Mad Edgar in Lear :" A line possibly from a lost ballad concerning Roland, famous as related to Charlemagne, and as hero of Le Chanson de Roland".

    Anyways, I am at fault here since this thread is about concept ALBUMS - which is to say the entire lp has to have a unifying concept, not a single track. The majority of Aerie Faerie Nonsense lp has to do with Fand (Irish mythology)which has nothing to do with the Childe Roland track. So...my error.


    As to this band, Ttus Andronicus" The Deacon has never heard it but did wiki it and it was labelled "indie rock band" (and elsewhere "gruff punk")

    There are about a dozen fanzine type sites that refer to them as "progressive punk" or a reference to their follow-up second album being a "prog rock opera" - that coupled with the Civil War concept in "The Monitor" led me to provide that answer but based on the interviews that I've read with founder Patrick Stickles not even he knows how to categorize the band and from what I've read so far the general consensus seems to be that they flirt with being "prog" when they feel that they can use that to push album sales.

    https://www.esquire.com/entertainmen...rick-stickles/

    I have to admit that it's debatable - "progressive punk" is a term that plays pretty fast and loose with both the prog and punk genres but "The Monitor" is generally considered to be a "progressive punk concept album loosely based upon the American Civil War" - although it takes a full 7 minutes before punk gives way to what arguably might be called "progressive punk" in this example -

    If it had been the "Spanish Civil War" it would have been easier - "Pasiones" by Cos...

    Man, you truely relish giving that knife yet another twist on every occasion.

    You should learn to let it go. Sheesh! Cut us some slack.

    You know what I meant.

    Yes, Pohjola was a Finn. I have some 10 of his solo lps and the book Finnish Jazz (which I got free from the Finn Culture Society
    - or summert loikes).

    It slipped my mind. Maybe I should have said Scandinavian meatball. But then you would have beamed some wisdom to the effect of Finland is not part of Scandinavia...wotever.


    I appreciate you're about the only one responding to my thread here, but this constant sniping is something one does not engage in when in the presence of a TRUE PROGMASTERMAN.



    As to RanestRane - I take your word for it. All I know is that its (supposedly - I have to be careful with you!) neoprog (which I abhor) cos two members of Marillion are involved.

    The band Im thinking of is ABIOGENESI. (which I would NOT call Neo, but rather retro.)

    I didn't think that anyone would get the joke - - it's a play on the series of American films "Francis the Talking Mule" -

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_the_Talking_Mule

    It's actually "Frances the Mute" for those who might be unaware but I still prefer my version -

    Kayak - Merlin, Bard of the unseen (2003) should fit your intention better. Merlin (1981) had only the A-side as a concept on the legend of Merlin. In 2003 they re-recorded those five songs, and added a bunch more all on the same theme of Merlin.

    Being a progmasterman (or progmasterwoman)



    is all about striking an attitude, but not so far as towards hubris.

    Afterall we do walk a different stratus than the hoi polloi.
