GET WITH THE TIMES

Prog - - News -

I find my­self fum­ing at an inane com­ment I have just read in your oth­er­wise ex­cel­lent and es­sen­tial magazine, of which I’ve been a reader since is­sue one. In this month’s Prog on Your Shout [in The Outer Lim­its, Prog 79] a so-called reader has the au­dac­ity to claim that there has been noth­ing prog since 1973. How can any­one who reads the magazine make such a pre­pos­ter­ous claim? Your magazine has cov­ered lots of mod­ern prog bands, from the 80s on­wards, even the old guard of prog re­leased some ex­cel­lent, ca­reer-defin­ing al­bums af­ter 1973. I sug­gest that this Mr Bum­bridge get off his bum and check out many of the new and won­der­ful mod­ern prog bands that are out there and give them the sup­port that a new band will des­per­ately seek. Apolo­gies for the rant but peo­ple like him make me so fu­ri­ous. Other than that, keep up the ex­cel­lent work.
