“Looking at it from a musicologist’s point of view, genre anomalies can be fascinating. Most music genres have their rules and parameters by which a standard band operates. In the world of progressive rock, or prog rock, or simply ‘prog’ if you know your stuff; expansiveness is a virtue. Your average prog album is 60 minutes and 4 tracks, or so the cliche goes. What ATTT is all about this week is the anomaly – the ‘short’ prog song, and for our intents and purposes all of this week’s tracks are under 5 minutes long. No suite sections, no interludes, absolutely no radio edits!

Of course if it’s a progressive rock episode, we have to be joined by 2 of the biggest prog nerds we know – Certified Prog Wizard and leader of SoCal prog titans Lobate Scarp Adam Sears is back; as well as Prog Sorcerer-In-Training Fernando Perdomo. To devotees of the genre, we hope we did you proud, although the inevitable nitpicking will surely commence immediately. *eyeroll* The picks are outstanding and the conversation is as hilarious and nerdy as you’d expect. Enjoy!

Fernando has just released his first all-prog album Out To Sea, and is a featured performer at next year’s upcoming Cruise To The Edge. Find out more at https://www.fernandoperdomo.com . Adam’s band Lobate Scarp has new music coming out soon.”
