Last but not least: some of the best prog you can hear this month
Grant Moon rounds up some of the other records passing under Prog’s portcullis
And the award for The Most Fun Band Name In This Issue Of Prog goes to Sheffield three-piece AWOOGA. They’ve toured Europe with Amplifier and Knifeworld, but their debut EP Alpha (Rockosmos) is probably heavier than anything either of those bands has shown us. Tam Ali’s post-grunge vocals and James Borrowdale’s way-downtuned guitar hold sway on their doomy, sludgy metal, which has a whiff of Tool and even Kings X about it. Thief and straightahead catchy Where The Others Go are well worth checking out.
