First of all, thank you for Power of Prog! Great site and community. Also, thanks for the warm welcome and kind words on our site ;) I got lost in the CSS- codes there a minute, hehe, but I eventually came across, and I think it turned out quite nicely.
Keep up the good work with the site and the progressive community in general. You deserve great praise for keeping the spirit of progressive music alive in an age of piracy and theft. Prog on, mate =)
Hi Nick... I'm glad to see people are still releasing CD's - I am still buying them and probably will until I die or go deaf. My own experience has taught me that I dont have the nads to deal with the physical product world and I will therefore limit my audience to those who are willing to deal with that. If they like the music, they can buy it that way, if they must have the CD, they dont have to like it. Its not a mean spirited thing, its a personal choice. Pirates typically dont want to put the energy into pirating an electronic only album. Its too much work for something that isnt considered "released". I actually lose sleep over the idea that someone is taking my intellectual property. Its like I have bugs crawling on me, or someone is snooping through my stuff while I'm asleep or away. - its wierd, its stalker-ish, and it bothers me. Sorry. What A blow to the artistic community....
If the quality of music shows you listen to matter, then check out my shows on House of Prog every Tuesday when I spin some of the best new vinyl. Yes vinyl! Because music should flow not be compressed.
Attention Bands... Do you have a vinyl release and want to be featured and played on my shows?
