Aural Moon unlistenable

This is the kind of press you've just got to love reading... NOT!
Code:
From: x77777x@gmail.com Subject: [PMS] Aural Moon unlistenable Date: August 1, 2008 11:23:32 PM EDT To: progressivemusicsociety@yahoogroups.com Reply-To: progressivemusicsociety@yahoogroups.com Seems that Aural Moon has decided (more so than usual) to play mostly unlistenable noise instead of legitimate progressive rock. Since I spend more time muting them and waiting for something decent than actual listening, they are a waste of effort. Is there an internet station that devotes itself to serious and legitimate prog, and leaves the musical detritus out of the mix? I know I'm gonna get flamed by Aural Moon fans, but that's ok.

I have to join this group - and a get a definition of legitimate progressive rock as that dickhead will have serious problems doing so without comprising his own attack

Re: Aural Moon unlistenable

I thought I knew these cats, but I looked on the page and it's someone else.

Small potatoes, and a confusing website to boot. Looks like another who thinks the world starts and stops with the same 5 or 6 bands and their offshoots.

I get feedback (mostly good) all the time - how interesting that someone chooses to write this.

The only thing worthwhile from that post is the word detritus. Never seen it used before, I like it.

ok, that's the 15 minutes of fame they got from me, and certaily no flaming. Onto the next thing...

Where are you looking?

It's a troll and very likely our old nemesis Cedric (Rick_Wakeman) trying to rouse the rabble. Look at the email address. Clearly a disposable gmail account. This is one of the reasons my SMTP server blacklists gmail, hotmail, and other such email services.

You need to read more case law then!

Here's another word to augment your vocabulary: perfidy. Applicable to this PMS posting.

Re: Aural Moon unlistenable

Sun Ra, GYBE, are few examples of the reason this thread is here. Noise is not music and to waste airtime on the Long efforts of these types of "artists" drives fans away. This is not a new position from me. Hey guess what, Sometimes it is unlistenable.
Now I need a thread about how great the Moon is, That I could write a book about. Im greatly dissapointed when a 20 min. noise piece comes up. Its because the Moon has so many jewels not playing then

Mailotron - on an unrelated note (while I have your attention). Do you know or know of Jaak Geebelen? He's from Belgium and I have him as a friend on my space. His photos of bands are exquisite.

I know him! Met him at a Marillion gig. He shoots with, essentially, a Canon EOS Rebel.

That name means nothing to me , perhaps his band's name will do ?

Re: Aural Moon unlistenable

I did a search on the mail x77777x@gmail.com and I found just one result on some technical page with the user name Homer Simpson. The text there did not fit any possible ex French member

Basically I agree with Sharc, but "progressive rock" has never been defined officially, there are on the different wikis the different definitions, being one not alike the other.

I support Jim's politic to have a wide range of what is prog, leaving space for New Age, Jazz, "Noise" etc..This opens the horizont to all AM listeners, so that we can qualify personally the tunes from "Must Have" to "unlistenable".

Due to many new additions, which are within this wide range and they got played by SAM and requested more frequently (we want to hear new things), in the last time we sometimes have one 30 min "noise" tune after the other (please understand this as my personal and private ranking) and not one Genesis followed by a PF and then by Supertramp.

So, I personally give a sh*t on that post. I think we know what we have here on the Moon: The classics and really new stuff, which we like or not. And we have here the ppl online to discuss the music in shout, which is the salt in the soup!!
