Back in the day, when Mike used to visit the studio for AmericanPrög Shows, we would shout into a Blue Snowball USB microphone positioned somewhere between us.


When we had finished we would occasionally record Not The AmericanPrög Shows.


This is one such show. Remastered to make it sound as best it could. It’s not the greatest sounding progressive rock podcast you’ll ever hear, but it sure as heck is better than it was.


This episode sees us playing some Epics, from such luminaries as It Bites, Yes, The Flower Kings and Marillion. So at least the MAMTABs is kept to a minimum.

Proving that prog isn’t just for dinosaurs!

I’m delighted to announce that the podcast for edition 397 of Live From Progzilla Towers is now available.

In this edition we heard the following music:

  • Steve Howe – Pennants
  • Change – Proxima B
  • Return To Forever – Duel Of The Jester And The Tyrant
  • Gerard Smith – The Storm
  • Astral Bazaar – Behind The Narrow Door
  • Hatfield And The North – The Yes No Interlude
  • Mumford & Sons – Lover Of The Light
  • Mobius – Rain Another Day
  • Pale Mannequin – Lunatic Pandora
  • Lord Helmet – Moth
  • Slift – Lions, Tigers And Bears
  • The Vintage Caravan – Clarity
  • Spock’s Beard – Harm’s Way
  • Materialeyes – Jerusalem Armageddon
  • King Crimson – Neal And Jack And Me
  • Nova Cascade – Rectify
  • Zombi – Turning Points
  • Caligula’s Horse – Autumn
