The Humps were formed with the goal of reviving Camel’s timeless compositions, aiming at both younger and older crowds.
The Band plays a changing set which consists mainly on Camel classics like "Lady Fantasy”, “The Snow Goose”, “Supertwister”, “Never Let Go”, “Ice”, “Lies”, "Nimrodel" and the list goes on...
While playing a 2 hours set it’s almost impossible to leave a Camel fan unsatisfied.

Elaine Samuels and Kindred Spirit - Phoenix Rising
Re-released May 3rd

We are very proud to add British progressive folk-rock band  Kindred Spirit to our roster of artists. The band re-release their magnificent album Phoenix Rising on May 3rd.

The album features the powerful, varied and perceptive song-writing and lead vocals of Elaine Samuels, plus expansive arrangements, featuring lead instrumentalists Gavin Jones (violin, recently replaced by the brilliant Martin Ash) and Catherine Dimmock (flute). Other features of the band include the solid rhythm section of Mike Hislop (bass) and the legendary Les Binks (ex Judas Priest, drums).

This is superb, emotive and sometimes mystical music in the grand tradition of FAIRPORT CONVENTION, JETHRO TULL, RENAISSANCE, CURVED AIR, MOSTLY AUTUMN and SOLSTICE amongst many others.

Elaine Samuels is a singer / songwriter who has been performing professionally since 1993.  The band were formed in the late 90s and give Elaine's songs the big, progressive arrangements they deserve.  That said, the album still offers plenty of variation from the glorious, Renaissance-style "The Phoenix" to the heavy rock of "Feed the Fire", "Let the Music Set You Free" which recalls early Solstice and the near pop of "Life is a Circus". This is as good a progressive folk album as you will hear.

The band headlined the first "Four Play Prog Festival" in April 2016

To hear clips and buy both albums go to   www.kindredspiritband.co.uk

Also available - Metamorphosis (2009)

Forthcoming releases / Comedy of Errors - Spirit. Available now
« Last post by Nineteen73 Promotions on April 25, 2016, 04:35:48 PM »
Nineteen-73 are very proud to add Scottish symphonic rock masters Comedy of Errors to our growing roster of artists.

Creating music that draws from a wide range of influences from classical to rock, the band pack a lot into their songs aiming to take the listener on a thought-provoking and powerful musical journey.

After a long absence from the scene, Comedy of Errors re-formed in 2010 and have been busy increasing their profile, gigging in the UK and Europe including rapturously-received appearances at the Summers End and Cambridge Rock Festivals.  The band will play their most prestigious gig yet on May 8 2016, with an appearance at the legendary Rosfest festival in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

The band have also released 3 albums, their first album effectively being Disobey (2011) followed by Fanfare and Fantasy (2013) and now Spirit.

Spirit is the band's most musically ambitious album so far, representing a major step forward in the band's development dealing with themes of grief, loss and ultimately, hope. The cornerstone of the album is a 45 minute unbroken piece taking the form of an emotional journey at once personal and universal, despairing and uplifting. Using many choral and orchestral textures, plus elements of Prog Metal, the album evokes the grand tradition of Yes, Renaissance and even Dream Theater.

Based near Glasgow, Scotland, Comedy of Errors are Joe Cairney (Vocals), John Fitzgerald (Bass), Bruce Levick (Drums), Jim Johnston (Keyboards), Sam McCulloch (Guitar) and Mark Spalding (Guitar).

Listen to clips and buy all 3 albums from: www.comedyoferrors.org

Tigermoth Records is pleased to announce the  release of the follow up to the acclaimed 2014 “Sanctuary” album by multi-instrumentalist and producer Robert Reed (Magenta / Kompendium / Kiama / Chimpan A).

“Sanctuary II” is produced, mixed and engineered by Reed, who also plays most of the instruments himself, although for this new album he is joined by legendary drummer Simon Phillips (Toto / Mike Oldfield/The Who) while the original “Tubular Bells” production team of Tom Newman and Simon Heyworth have once again made important contributions to the sound of the album.

Robert comments about the spirit behind the two Sanctuary albums:

“There's a well known interview with Mike Oldfield in which he said that he was so disappointed that nobody had carried the torch forward that he had lit with 'Tubular Bells' - creating long form music; completely hand- played with real instruments; music that relied on emotion and melody; music you could lose yourself in. What I am trying to do with the “Sanctuary ”albums is to carry that ideal forward.”

Robert also discusses the participation of legendary drummer Simon Phillips on "Sanctuary II":

“I wanted to do something different on this new album. I had played all the instruments on the first, so this time I decided to use real drums. There was one person at the top of my wish list, and it was  Simon Phillips. I grew up listening to Simon's playing on Mike Oldfield’s “Crises” album, and went to see him play with Mike at Wembley. I could never had thought, then, that one day he would play on my own album. I feel amazingly lucky. His trademark sound is perfect for the album. It really has taken 'Sanctuary II' to another level."

The album will be released as a 3 disc set. CD1 will contain the new album while CD2 includes unreleased tracks, remixes and Tom Newman's alternative mixes. The third disc will be  a DVD containing the 5.1 mix of the album and various promotional videos.

The album can be pre-ordered from www.robreedofficial.co.uk
A vinyl version will also be available from www.planegroovy.com

The album will be preceded by the release of a digital EP “Marimba” on April 18th taken from "Sanctuary II". The EP will contain 4 tracks and will be available from the Robert Reed band camp site.

Forthcoming releases / Kiama - The Sign of IV. Available Now

Kiama - The Sign of IV.  Available Now!

Tigermoth Records proudly presents the release of Sign of IV, the debut album from Kiama which features Rob Reed (Magenta / Kompendium), Andy Edwards (IQ, Robert Plant, Frost), Luke Machin (Maschine, the Tangent) and Dylan Thompson (The Reasoning, Shadow of the Sun)

We have drawn from a pool of music and references that came from the early 70s and from bands that were largely considered to be "rock" but to us made some of the great "Prog epics" of the era: Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" and "Kashmir", Rainbow's "Stargazer" and  Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody". These became our template.

We felt that there was no point in making music that sounded like our previous bands.  We wanted to do something different. One factor that we loved from these great 1970s albums was that the bands were not afraid to mix styles.  A Queen or a Led Zeppelin album might follow rock with jazz, folk with blues.  We were not afraid to do the same thing, so each track has a very different feel.

Sign of IV - recorded at Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios -  presents the very best in Progressive music.  Each track is a mini-masterpiece, with organic and spacious arrangements.  Full of melody, intricate nuance and delightful mood changes, it really is an album worth remembering.
