Conflux Cornucopia Cerebellum Cocktail Hour Episode #042:  Prognosis: Prog Rock

May 26, 11pm


the show starts with carry-over from Skeevy Side Show….Anarchy UK by the Sex Pistols. Even though Punk is about polar opposite of Progressive Rock, I love both genres….so it remains.

After carefully studying the symptoms, it seemed to me that a heavy dose of Prog Rock was needed.
