Spock’s Beard

All posts tagged Spock’s Beard

I’m doing another of my band family tree explorations on Prog-Watch this week and my subject is the classic US band Spock’s Beard! We’ll hear from the band proper, and many of the major members, past and present! Join me to hear all the great stuff that I shake out of the Spock’s Beard Family Tree!

 

845: Shaking the Family Tree of Spock’s Beard

 

As a warm-up (or bone-chill) for Samhain or Halloween, this week’s Prog-Watch is all about nightmares and the macabre! With songs concerning things spooky or supernatural from Alice Cooper, Atomic Rooster, King Crimson, Uriah Heep, Kansas, Rush, Anthony Phillips, Spock’s Beard, Pink Floyd, Steven Wilson, and Jethro Tull! Join me…if you dare!

843: Welcome to My Nightmare

 

This week’s Prog-Watch is a BIG themed special! Hear great BIG classics from Peter Gabriel, Ritual, Electric Light Orchestra, Matt Stevens, Yes, Spock’s Beard, Genesis, Damanek, Stackridge, Tears For Fears, Simon Collins, Tinyfish, Robert Plant, Fish, and Rush! All in 90 minutes!

807: Big Tony’s Big BIG Special

 

This week on Prog-Watch my special guest is Nick D’Virgilio, who is perhaps best known as a drummer
and vocalist for Spock’s Beard
and Big Big Train! Nick
and I chat about his illustrious career,
and along the way I’ll be spinning lots of great music from Spock’s Beard
and various side projects in which Nick has participated (including Rewiring Genesis, Deckchair Poets,
and Zorbonauts)! We will also hear a number of tunes from his solo career, including a couple from his wonderful new album ‘Invisible’!

727: In Conversation with Nick D’Virgilio

This week’s Prog-Watch is a Variety program with a Guest DJ Feature! I’ll be spinning tracks from Robyn Ferguson, Tarmak, Ubi Maior, Airbag, Silas and Saski, Nick D’Virgilio, Steve Thorne, and Haken! Our Guest DJ, Mr. Tony Zappa (no relation to Frank, he informs me) has chosen songs from Yes, Spock’s Beard, King Crimson, and Jon And Vangelis, and I’ll be mixing those in and reading Tony’s commentary!
