Bruce Soord: "I heard The Alan Parsons Project and my life changed"

The great and good of progressive music give us a glimpse into their prog worlds – this month, the Pineapple Thief's Bruce Soord is up...

Where’s home?

Yeovil, Somerset, near Glastonbury and the Jurassic Coast. I grew up here. It’s lovely.

Your earliest prog memory?

I was a spotty 12-year-old at a mate’s house, and his mum put on The Alan Parsons Project’s Tales Of Mystery And Imagination. I can clearly remember the needle going down on their expensive record player. At the time I was into Howard Jones and Madonna, but the moment I heard that, my life changed and I wanted to be a musician.
