Listening to Areknames! Pretty damn good.
I apologize if these have already been mentioned, but I would contribute the following:
Egg - The Polite Force
Ambrosia - s/t
PFM - Photos of Ghosts
Gentle Giant - In a Glass House
Great band! PFM! I have that one, and The Island album. As for Gentle Giant, the only album I don't have ironically, no joke, is The Missing Piece
I really need to get some PFM.
I only own Octopus from Gentle Giant and it's pretty nice off- the wall prog rock, though their overall sound is a bit too clinical for me. I'll have to look into their other albums.
Clinical and lacking in real emotion to me.
My favorite GG album is Acquiring the Taste. Wreck is an awesome song
I highly reccomend Captain Beyond (their first album is amazing), Steamhammer is also quite great, and of course Armaggeddon, Keith Relf's hard rock prog band. They kick ass.
This is great!
To it, I add a more accessible intro album:
Eskaton: 4 visions
The Moon Is Down.....
Yea, I've been meaning to check it out for a while now. Zeuhl ftw.
Shub-Niggurath's Les Morts Vont Vinte is an impressive zeuhl album. I don't find SN as engaging as Magma, but they're more complex and definitely interesting.
Al Di Meola. Try him out Mathias.
I'm currently addicted to KoenjiHyakkei's Hundred Sights of Koenji. Very energetic, freaky and awesome stuff. A must for zeuhl enthusiasts.
been rocking out to "yeti" by amon duul II recently
If you like him, check out John McLaughlin.
Friday Night in San Fransico with Paco Delucia as well!
Anekdoten is fucking awesome. Reminds me of Gentle Giant
A band that sounded a lot like Gentle Giant, was the Band Echolyn.
Not really classic (late 80's, early 90's) and probably belongs in the fusion thread, but I just bought Gamalon - Aerial View, cheap off ebay and I'm just crazy about that band. They have the rock edge iced with fusion, some sweet mellow stuff too, but far from cliche.
Incase anyones interested
