NEW MUSIC: ‘going thru changes’ by Joey Maxwell

Joey Maxwell has just dropped his debut single ‘going thru changes’ and it is probably best described as absolutely pure bliss. Joey leads us on a path of believing this is a minimalistic production, then a saxophone comes out of nowhere and it’s an alt-pop bop which boasts infectious, uplifting synths that wouldn’t sound too …

This is a very special opportunity to experience Pink Floyd’s celebrated and significant early body of work played live including songs from albums ‘The Piper At The Gates of Dawn’ and ‘A Saucerful Of Secrets’, through to ‘Obscured By Clouds’. The band have been very highly praised by fans and the media alike for the quality and uniqueness of each performance – the Saucers clearly have a wonderful time performing together, and that comes across clearly in the music.

2019 Prog Magazine annual awards last night – Nick Mason & Tony Smith honoured

Prog Magazine (https://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/Prog-Print-Back-Issues/), honour newcomers and established acts alike, along with other key individuals. There were two key, Floyd-related awards given out last night – the first of these was Industry VIP, that was presented to Tony Smith. With a roster of top acts (including Genesis, and the various individuals/offshoot projects) he has also been Nick Mason’s manager for some time, and Nick’s Saucerful Of Secrets are under his wing too. Talking of Nick, it was last night that he received his trophy as Prog God. This had been previously announced that he was due to be given the award at this year’s ceremony, so all due preparation had been made. At the time the news broke, almost a month ago, Nick said: I’m all in favour of recognition for drummers – particularly when it’s me – so I’m really delighted to be recognised as Prog God. It’s hard to believe that it was over 50 years ago that the music we know as prog rock was born, and it’s still being celebrated, played and developed in the 21st century. Long may it continue! As part of the Prog God announcement last night, a video was shown collecting highlights of his career to date, and included some of the recently shot live footage of the Saucers at London’s Roundhouse (which looked great!). Nick did joke about hoping that he’d be winning Best Newcomer as well as Lifetime Achievement on the same evening! The picture here is Nick during his acceptance speech, with comedian and host for the evening Al Murray (left) and Rory Bremner, which was posted on the Prog social media channels. The live stream they had running will hopefully be available to view on demand in due course; pictorial coverage and the full list of winners from the Progressive Music Awards 2019 will be printed in their special souvenir issue, which goes on sale from October 25 and will also be available to purchase, worldwide, online (https://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/Prog-Print-Back-Issues/).
