Big Big Train's Greg Spawton gives us a glimpse into his prog world

Big Big Train bassist Greg Spawton on Peter Hammill, prog and guilty pleasures...

Where’s home?

I’ve lived in Bournemouth for 25 years but I was brought up in Sutton Coldfield in the Midlands, and that will always feel like my proper hometown.

Earliest prog memory?

In 1977 my brother came home with Genesis’ Selling England By The Pound. He’d play it extremely loud in the house. I was 12 and the minute I heard it it hit home as something unusual and beautiful, I’ve never forgotten that.
