Sam and Felix are art thieves. Sam has just stolen a picture from a museum in Italy, but told Felix that it was lost in a boat accident. He wants copies made to sell while he will sell the original and get paid both ways. To find an artist, they pick the young, beautiful, naive Anna. When Anna has doubts, Sam strings her along and then marries her and go to Sicily on their honeymoon. Anna finds out that Sam is a thief and is very disappointed. Felix finds out that Sam has the original and is out to get it. The police are also waiting along with the buyer that Sam has for the painting.
Welcome to the latest mix of progressive music that makes up the contents for the new Prog magazine cover disc. We kick off with a couple of tracks taken from the much-anticipated new albums from Mostky Autumn and Blackfield, and "Tomorrow Dies" and "Family Man" most certainly do not disappoint. Then we have a trio of great new acts making their Prog debuts: Koyo, Serpentyne and Kaprekar's Constant - all with different and unique sounds, and all of whom you'll be reading more about in future issues of Prog. Beatrix Players, Grice and The Mighty Handful have all appeared on our CD before, and we welcome them back with open arms, before we close with the heavy psych vibe of Jerusalem and the eclectic approach of the aptly-named Intrigue. A great selection of diverse sounds from this wonderful progressive universe that we are lucky enough to write about.
The laserpunk duo Rainbowlicker, consisting of Johan (ex-Beastmilk) and Peps (ex-Creepy Crawlie), has for quite some time aroused attention with their live performances, but until now the worrisome twosome hasn't been successfully persuaded to enter the studio.
Peps and Johan's music draws inspiration from the fury of punk rock and riot grrrl subculture and drowns them in electronic pulsating waves of sound. The eclectic electric group has been difficult to pin down, and their music has shaken the walls of art galleries as well as rat-infested Russian squats.
