MAN And Related Mayhem on Geek EmaNation Podcast!

ManThe ’60s-’70s Welsh R&B/Prog/Boogie/Jam collective known as MAN had a particular connection with San Francisco, being arguably the UK’s answer to MOBY GRAPE.  It got a scandalous start when the track “Erotica” from MAN’s first LP was banned by the BBC, and then went in many varied and unpredictable directions, even spinning off another fine Prog-Rock act The NEUTRONS.  Hear plenty of early MAN tracks plus peripheral work by front-man DEKE LEONARD on this GE episode.  Grove with the Wales/SF connection, fellow music geeks!

Gentle GiantSure prog-rock gets a bad rap in a post-punk era where simplicity and directness trump musical virtuosity, but it’s still fun to look back at a time when pretentiousness was not only tolerated but rewarded!  Here the prog heavies (YES, GENESIS, KING CRIMSON, STYX) along with some you might have missed (VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR, GENTLE GIANT, PROCOL HARUM).  No teenage lobotomies this show, fellow music geeks!
