Progressive Rock? Maybe. You might hear an epic song or 2, and an occasional Mellotron, but you won't hear any self-indulgent solos or songs about dragons or faeries. King Crimson, Roxy Music, Brian Eno, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, XTC, Flaming Lips...
Why this name?
It has a strange link to Jack Benny...
Do you play live?
Not really. Mark plays with his worship band in church, does that count?
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I hope it wakes it up. It certainly gives music fans access to information and music they otherwise would have never heard. Like anything with great power, it can be used for good, or it can be used for bad.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
We've been around since 1983. We've eenjoyed a very small cult following ever since.
Progressive Rock (ELP, Yes, Jethro Tull, Genesis, Kin Crimson, Pink Floyd) is our biggest single influence, but really good pop music, (Beatles) some of the more creative Christian bands (Daniel Amos, Delirious), Punk, New Wave and synth-pop (XTC, the Suburbs, Pere Ubu, Gary Numan, Ultravox) had an impact on us when the Progosaurs were wallowing in the tar pits. Pre-hairband metal had it's place (UFO, Led Zeppelin, Rush, Alice Cooper). And Ralph had us going too (Yello, Residents, Snakefinger)
