The dressing well part doesn't work, trust me. I dress well and the girls aren't throwing themselves at me.

I have too much dignity to pretend to be Mormon!

Porcupine Tree started out in the late eighties as a fictitious joke band, the creation of Steven Wilson, an Englishman from Hemel Hempstead outside London. He came up with this fake seventies prog rock band, "the legendary Porcupine Tree", and decided to record and distribute some material to give this fake band an air of authenticity.

As it happened, some people in the music underground actually thought what he was doing was fairly interesting, and he recorded more. Initially it was really experimental, avantgarde stuff, but Steven Wilson's songwriting developed quickly and after recording the first album, Up The Downstair (from 1993) on his own, he turned Porcupine Tree into a proper band to play live. The band quickly became a proper band, rather than just Steven Wilson with backing musicians, and SW doesn't always get his own way (for example, the song Christenings from his side project Blackfield was originally meant to be on PT's Deadwing album, but the rest of the band over-ruled him).

OK, so, one of the three more PT songs I'm sending is Waiting (Phase One). It's from 1996's Signify album, and is probably the most conventional song there. I think it sounds really great, and Ali thinks some of the guitarwork is especially Edge-like. I can't say I disagree with her.

Most religions send missionaries to Africa to save the 'heathens' (my sister actually went to Africa on a mission before she became a Mormon), the Mormons send their missionaries everywhere else to convert the Christians. They have all kinds of tricks too. Like they have commercials offering free Bibles or videos about Jesus. And these innocent people are like "Oh, free stuff!" and they call... but no, they don't send it in the mail, they have missionaries hand deliver your free gift, and then they try to convert you. And once they know where you live they won't leave you alone.
