Avant-Prog, RIO | Cuneiform Records #Rune 407

Thinking Plague has been releasing impossible to categorize albums to a devoted fan-base for over 30 years. In This Life, originally released in 1989, was the group's 3rd album. It is probably their most popular release. It comes back into print for the first time in years in a newly remastered version overseen by the band and making its first-ever appearance on Cuneiform. Thinking Plague is a United States avant-garde progressive rock group founded in 1982 by guitarist/composer, Mike Johnson, and bass guitarist/drummer, Bob Drake. Based in Denver, Colorado, the band has been active off and on since 1982, taking on a number of musicians over the years. They have made six studio albums between 1984 and 2012, and released one live album recorded at NEARfest in 2000. Their music is a mix of rock, folk, jazz and 20th-century classical music. In spite of Johnson's dislike of the term, the band has often been categorized as a "RIO" band.

OCTOBER EQUUS is definitely one of Spain's most pleasant in the world of prog and avant-garde rock nowadays. Formed in 2003, its well-catalyzed mixture of KING CRIMSON-inspired vibe and PRESENT-inspired ballsy RIO recreates the oppressive moods and sinister atmospheres of avant-garde prof's primal sources with amazing vitality and freshness, not unlike other contemporary acts such as DR. NERVE and HAPPY FAMILY, to mention just a couple of examples…

This band's debut may well have been one of the most amazing and radical records to be released during the punk era (or any era for that matter), recorded under the most extreme conditions in the years before punk rock was a reality (1973-1974). Prague's Plastic People of the Universe, and the band they later became, Pulnoc, remain one of rock & roll's great stories of triumph and how great music can be produced and survive even in the most hostile of environments…

Not the most conventional of avant-prog acts, Italians NichelOdeon have been a collective, a rather large one incorporating dozens more musicians/singers from all over the globe, since their formation in 1997. Following in the footsteps of their prog forefathers PFM, Goblin et al, their music incorporates a chamber rock element, if not an operatic one in the case of their project leader/composer, 7-octave singer Claudio Milano…
