Thank you to Roine Stolt for talking today with Progarchy.com on the Progarchy Podcast.
The Flower Kings return next month with Waiting for Miracles, a magnificent album that we have had a chance to listen to and that we highly recommend to all prog lovers.

Listen above to the Progarchy Podcast interview with Richard Henshall of Haken.
Henshall takes us track-by-track through his forthcoming solo album The Cocoon.

*Correction: Haken L-1VE was actually released in 2018. I mistakenly assumed that because it came before Vector (2018) that it was released in 2017. In fact, they were both released in the same year.
A bluesy, atmospheric piece that the band improvised live on the air during the Apollo 11 mission deserves to be more than a footnote of musical history.
Over the decades, “Moonhead” has remained one of the most overlooked entries in the band’s canon, despite its historic status. Pink Floyd was commissioned by the BBC to perform instrumental music live on the air as the Apollo 11 crew’s video and audio signals came streaming in across the emptiness of space, beating the Soviets at the race that had been spurred on by John F. Kennedy’s rousing moonshot speech in 1962.
Pink Floyd was uniquely qualified for the task.
