ARGENT’s Ardent Pop-Prog on Geek EmaNation Podcast!
Friday, May 1
GE gets woefully obscure in a 2-hour celebration of the mostly forgotten ’70s pop-prog pioneers ARGENT. From the ashes of Brit baroque-pop sensations The ZOMBIES came an ambitious band bent on breaking musical barriers led by keyboard wizard ROD ARGENT (and including his cousin JIM RODFORD on bass). Mostly known for 1 smash hit (1972s “Hold Your Head Up”) and 1 cult classic (1973s “God Gave Rock And Roll To You”), their first 5 LPs informed the young musical palate of your host The Rock’N’Roll Nurse, and he obsessively presents highlights from those records for your aural pleasure. Prog-Lite forever, fellow music geeks!
