Dukes Of The Orient - Dukes Of The Orient

Actually 'Asia Featuring John Payne' ;) . The anticipation ... a new album will be released in August. Autobuy 8) .

Cool. Is there anywhere I can find more info about this? Who's playing on the new album and what is it called?


Now listening to Pattern-Seeking Animals' "Prehensile Tales". I think this is excellent.
I wonder what this means for the future of Spock's Beard.

I always liked the Spock's Beard songs that were written by John Boegehold and there were many. Now that he has a band of his own, it's very unlikely that he will contribute to future SB songs.

*Will Ted and Dave stay at SB or focus more on PSA? Dave has a long history with Spock's and he seems to be a very loyal fellow, but Ted's talents are clearly underused in Spock's...
By the way, is the new drummer officially the new drummer? Or still a temporary replacement?

In my opinion Spock's Beard without John Boegehold needs a Neal Morse. ;D


::) Wow, I'm clearly overthinking things here.

Thank you so much! I noted it in my calendar.
Good to see Frank Klepacki being part of the line-up. As you might (or might not) know, I'm a fan of the guy, because of his fantastic soundtrack work on several of my favourite video games.

The new track 'Monitors' is promising 8).

I listened to it and will listen to it again! I was not really blown away, but that's no immediate problem for me.

np: Psychotic Waltz - The God-Shaped Void

What do you think of the album Teunis? :)

Asia - Alpha

Another favourite band of mine. Beautiful melodies and I have always loved John Wetton's vocals 8).

I also really like the first two Asia albums with John Wetton (the third a bit less), but the Asia reunion albums left me cold... I really preferred the John Payne albums for as far as I've heard them.

Today I was listening to:
Neal Morse - "Testimony"

and now:
John Holden - "Rise And Fall" (Bandcamp)

Yeah, it does ring a bell that his name was mentioned (many times) before ;).

It was on my 'to check out' list. Gave it a listening or 3, but it's not really what I like. A bit too heavy and not melodious enough to keep it on that list ;).

The debut album is still my favourite with 'Alpha' as second. 'Astra' has some beautiful songs (e.g. 'Rock And Roll Dream' and 'After The War'), but is less interesting. Have to agree: I own all the albums, also the 'after reunion' albums, but hardly play them and find the 'John Payne' album more interesting.

I really must check this out.

Over the past few days I have been listening to the Phideaux catalogue.

Lots of great songs and a sound that I really like.

Before that I was listening to IQ as well

Subterranea, Road of Bones and Resistance

Haha past week this thread's been dominated by Teunis again! ;D
Good to see you keeping it alive. :P


I Am The Manic Whale - "Things Unseen"
What a fantastic album! Wow! Anyone know this band? The epic Celebrity is really nice.
They remind me a bit of A.C.T. It's very musical-ish.

Anyone tried this one already?
It's sooooo good!
