I obviously have the usual suspects like PT, DT, PRR, Spock's Beard, and Transatlantic.
I think the usual suspects are probably sufficient, although adding other artists such as Riverside would be ok, too.

I'd also add Anathema, who while aren't traditional prog, are close enough to the genre.

IQ might belong in the second wave more, but their 1998 album Subterranea was very good and probably could work with the third wave.

You've also got newer bands like Airbag and The Third Ending, who are decent enough even if they aren't breaking any new ground musically.

That's off the top of my head at the moment - I'm sure I'm forgetting quite a bit.

Pink Floyd

Kansas
Queen

Then you've got your second teir, so to speak, who didn't gain the commercial success of the first list, but still are relatively known:

Focus
Gentle Giant
Strawbs
Tangerine Dream
etc.

And then for really obscure stuff, ask HardyHarHar.
Camel too. There's got to be some Camel.

Also, who's going to include Anglagard? Chronologically, they fall under my list, but sonically, they really belong with the first wave. They have to appear somewhere. Hybris is a masterpiece of an album.

I forgot about Nektar as well. Some good stuff there.

Riverside and The Third Ending are both there. You have no idea how pissed I am that last year, I missed a concert featuring The Third Ending and Template because I didn't know about it until about when The Third Ending would have been taking the stage. They need to get their arses up to the mainland from Tassie again soon.

I hope somebody does the second wave, to cover bands like IQ, Marillion, Pallas, Pendragon, etc. Not much of an IQ fan myself.

Anathema I'm thinking about, though they aren't there yet.

I know I'll have to cut some PT epics. I have five PT songs on the list, of which the SHORTEST is Arriving Somewhere But Not Here.

I'm making a CD with a lot of those artists and gathering Youtube links for them. If there are any Youtube videos that have to be included tell me.

I can't wait to freak people out Dunedin Sound-wise by linking them to an awesome video of The Dead C that's on YouTube. I'll save that one until I've sucked people in ...

OK folks, I have a lecture tomorrow at the comparatively early hour of midday, so since it's 2:30am here, I should get some sleep. Have a good one and keep the thread progressing.



Edit: Just checked post stats before leaving. Holy shit, people!

I have Set Controls by Pink Floyd as one of my videos. What should the other Pink Floyd one be?

Perhaps something off of Meddle, as most everyone else will know the other stuff?

The sad part is that it probably won't change that much by the time you wake up.

That's a good idea. I think I'm going to use One of These Days from Pompeii. Thanks.
