    To Prog or Not To Prog?

    A friend of mine turned me on to a young band called The Last Archer (http://www.myspace.com/thelastarcher), saying "I hear you like prog, you should check these guys out." Sure enough, all the signs were there: technical musicianship, screwing with timing, stops in odd places, and the like. Their song "The View" has some fabulous stuff in it. However, the myspace page had no mention of a story in the lyrics of their CD. Does a band need to have a story to be prog? Or is that just a misconception of mine?

    Definitely the latter. Of course, some of the greatest prog bands use this. Magma, of course, being the primary one.

    welllll

    prog bands do not neccessarily have to have a story.. as long as their stuff sounds good and they can build a legitimate fan base, it counts.
