    So I heard a progressive rock band on the radio today. If that doesn't sound unbelievable enough, it's NOT in Schizoids top 60!

    Band is called Traffic, and the name sounded very familiar, but I checked on the list and it's not there! They are very, very jazzy, which is the only thing I can really say about their sound since I had such limited time to listen to them. Anyway, here's the TWO songs I heard.

    Glad

    i love Traffic, but its too iffy for me to call them prog, more rock with some jazz thrown in (but not enough to call them jazz rock or fusion)

    Jim Capaldi is amazing



    and yes, I also own John Barleycorn Must Die on LP :D

    Traffic is more of a Pioneer IMO than an actual Prog. group as in yes they are Prog. but not as much as some other bands were during that time also, Traffic is amazing

    You mind if I use this idea to start a Psych Rock thread? (just hope their won't be more imitators like the Community Setlists :mad:)

    The only genre list I could do like that would be like... post-hardcore or maybe power metal. I think I'm the most versed in those.

    Yeah I know to much about Psych Rock (other than Prog. of course :D) so it fits me the best

    I could do a Progressive Metal thread if there weren't already a general Progressive thread, since that's where I'm most versed.

    That is the problem I don't want to see a billion knock-off threads if I make one :mad:

    Still I question should I do a Psych thread or not?

    After all Psych did help pioneer Prog. ;)

    I know a lot more about Progressive Metal than a lot of my peers, so this could work to my advantage. =P

    The thing is we already have a request thread for it (JukeBoxHero made it) so if you want to request the genre please post in that thread :)

    If you want to request a band make sure their is not a thread on it already and then post your thread

    lol, i could already see any prog metal thread's first 30 (stupid) posts:

    "Tool!"
    "Dream Theatre!"
    "Opeth!"
    then a bunch of random:
    "slipknot"
    "korn"
    "linkin park"
    "fall of troy"
    etc.

    ive talked to JBH about it before and we were thinking of making new threads that would be seperate between prog rock and prog metal, and to keep the confusion of the title of the old one swept under the rug

    If he wants to help, at least.

    I'm touched. <3

    Anyways, just looking at schiz's first two posts to get a good idea of a setup, and I think I may use that.

    Schiz, all you really have to do is change the thread's title and take out the Progressive Metal, then I can take it from there. XP
