A re-issue of the classic 1979 album from Robert Fripp, as diverse a work as you might ever hope to find. With outstanding contributions from Daryl Hall, Terre Roche, Peter Gabriel, Tony Levin and many, many more.

An EP from the new lineup of Evil Beaver, with Gene Trautman (Queens of the Stone Age) replacing Laura Ann Beaver as Evie Evil’s partner in music. Raw pounding music produced by veteran Mike Terry (Foo Fighters).
Political statements, ecological stands, social commentary and a very commercial pop sound from a three-piece band. No, it’s not Green Day! You might find this terrific trio a bit more reminiscent of England’s Muse. An exceptional album!

I would highly recommend this CD – it’s good old rock and roll, nicely flavored with many stylish rhythms and influences of guitarist Tom Guerra.
Some serious fusion and progressive influences from some guys rooted in heavy metal. Think of a blend of King Crimson and Metallica with hints of Pink Floyd and I think you’ll have a good idea of this instrumental music.
The sixth release by Triggering Myth (Rick Eddy on keyboards and guitar and Tim Drumheller on keyboards) finds them joining forces with the fantastic violin work of Akihisa Tsuboy of Japan’s progressive fusion group, KBB.
