Cross - new CD and keyboardist
Latest News - Music News
Written by RogorMortis

Cross, who for a couple of years have been working as a trio together with Grand Stand's keyboardist Olov Andersson as special guest on the two latest albums felt that it would be a good thing to work with a permanent keyboard player, someone who could also had the potential to co-write a couple of songs together with the bands head composer and founder, Hansi Cross. And after some contemplation the choice was to invite...Göran Johnsson. Yes, the very same guy that now is Galleon's new drummer.

Hansi, who also contributed to the above mentioned Spektrum album, had noticed that Göran was a "not too bad" keyboard player as well and after have heard some of Göran's own compositions he was stricken by two things. The first was "Wow! Some of these songs are really good!" and the second was "Hmmm...it sounds a bit like my composition and yet not. Interesting!" So, Hansi talked to his band mates Tomas and Lollo about Göran and they also felt that it was a good idea to ask Göran to join Cross. So they did and he immediately and happily accepted.

So, the same thing that happened within Galleon is now also a fact regarding Cross. The new album is recorded with a large portion of enthusiasm and energy and somewhat sounds as a mix of Gaze, Secrets and Playgrounds but also with a new feel to it.

Due out in March

"What is primary to me is that they are all great musicians. Everyone has to be a good improviser. It's not enough to transcribe the tunes themselves. You have to be able to take them to another place... These guys can get there." - Jan Hammer

"...they grab the bar the original Mahavishnu set during its 1971-'74 peak
and raise it a notch. There's a truly amazing level of musicianship at play
here, balancing focus, intensity and freedom..." - The Boston Phoenix
"...an exciting document of inspiration and exploration. .." - Rolling Stone

Porcupine Tree - CD title

From a Porcupine Tree forum the following was posted

"It's called "Fear of a Blank Planet." SW is putting the finish touches on the album this week in Belgium for the album, set for release on April 24, according to a press release I just received via email. It also says that the lyrical content of the song cycle on the album is a "21st century cocktail of MTV, sex, prescription drugs, video games, the internet, terminal boredom, and subsequent escape. The title track, propelled by nervous, jittery energy, sums up many of the album's themes: 'Xbox is a go to me. Finger on the switch/my mother is a bitch/my father gave up ever trying to talk to me.' " ("The press release was from Shore Fire, the PR agency in the US that is handling both PT and Blackfield publicity. They're a pretty big PR firm with clients such as Norah Jones, Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, etc., so that's good news for the band.")

The album title is obviously a riff on Public Enemy's "Fear of a Black Planet."


Roadrunner Records and Atlantic USA have officially announced the release of the new Porcupine Tree album "Fear of a Blank Planet" in mid April. The album features six (mostly lengthy) tracks, and is the band’s most ambitious and cohesive work to date. Much of it was debuted last year on tour to a rapturous response from fans.

Matching Mole

"Robert Wyatt formed Matching Mole in 1972, shortly after he left Soft Machine and just before launching his solo career. Matching Mole bore some similarities to his later work with Soft Machine. In fact, Wyatt came up with the name 'Matching Mole' as a subtle pun on the French translation of 'Soft Machine' - 'machine molle'.

'On The Radio' is a compilation of rare BBC recordings, including 3 John Peel studio sessions and a live concert. The band includes Dave Sinclair (ex Caravan), Phil Miller (Hatfield & The North and National Health), Bill MacCormick and Dave MacRae

This special 'digi-pack' format features an original cover photograph by Robert Wyatt, who also compiled the running order. The accompanying 12 page CD booklet features extensive liner notes by Matching Mole bassist, Bill MacCormick, plus rare period photo's and comprehensive recording details"

Also, an interesting looking collaboration between ex-Soft Machine members and Ruins drummer, Yoshida Tatsuya :

"Legendary Soft Machine veterans Elton Dean and Hugh Hopper joined forces in 2003 with wildly creative keyboardist/composer Hoppy Kamiyama and master drummer, Yoshida Tatsuya to create Soft Mountain. Their debut recording is now released here for the first time.

Elton Dean & Hugh Hopper are well known amongst jazz rock fans. In addition to forming half of the 'classic' Soft Machine line-up (with Robert Wyatt & Mike Ratledge) they have also worked with Brotherhood of Breath, Keith Tippett & Long John Baldry's Bluesology (Dean) and Stomu Yamashta, Kevin Ayers & Isotope (Hopper).

This limited edition digi-pack features a liner note from Hugh Hopper."  - release date 30/1/07
