there is nothing better than good music (ok that might be a slight exaggeration, but you know what I mean)

I need to get to sleep too; I have a long day of working in my garden tomorrow. Just incase you guys didn’t notice I REALLY like this band, kind of dorky but I’m very excited about diving into more of their stuff (I haven’t had a new band to obsess over for a while)
I'm really glad! I didn't think I'd actually successfully convert anyone to any of my bands - in fact, I wasn't sure if things would even go well enough to merit a second round of my Modern Prog series.

PT has a very diverse, extensive catalogue, and hopefully you'll enjoy it. The earliest stuff (On The Sunday Of Life) is very bizarre and experimental, made by Wilson in his bedroom, and I don't listen to it much. He assembled a band for the later albums, though Up The Downstair was originally recorded by Wilson solo and then re-recorded with the full band for a later re-issue.

There will be some waiting in your inbox in the morning.

Good music rules my life.

And yes, I am quite happy to introduce you or anyone else to prog! I'm kind of new to it myself, I only got my first Porcupine Tree CD in June 2005, but I think I'm getting there.

A combination of both, actually! I have quite the memory (interested in Pi to 353 decimal places? No, I don't know why I memorised it; boredom perhaps), and when I am keen on something, I am keen on it. Plus, like I said, good music rules my life - I can't get enough of it.

And weren't you going to bed?

LMAO!

Interested in PI to two decimal places? That's about as much as I remember

Thanks for the parting gifts!
