Kscope post-progressive sounds

Hello! Welcome to the Kscope Podcast.

Gavin Harrison, Porcupine Tree’s drummer, has taken time out from working with King Crimson to record a contemporary jazz album, based on his love of brass arranging; using as its source material his favourite Porcupine Tree songs, melodies and leitmotifs.

The result is astonishing; a kind of heavy rock Lalo Schifrin, and Gavin explains the influences behind the project in an exclusive interview here.

Plus you'll hear some of the pieces on ‘Cheating the Polygraph’.

Continuing the Steven Wilson theme you’ll hear a track from the new North Atlantic Oscillation ‘Glare’ EP, a Wilson remix of ‘Wires’ (released to  coincide with the band’s mini-tour, and talking of concerts… two tracks from Kscope concert –movie albums from Katatonia & Nosound.

Hand. Cannot. Erase.’ Is the much-anticipated 4th solo album from one of rock music’s most interesting characters, Steven Wilson.

You’ll hear four tracks from the LP and an in-depth interview with the man himself, on his style, why it would be “melodramatic” to split up his much-loved band Porcupine Tree, and how this is his most “conceptual” album to date.

This is a man who sells out the Royal Albert Hall; this is an album that the UK national newspaper the Guardian gave 5 stars. This record demands your attention. It's out now.

Also, we’ll hear from Anders Nystrom of Swedish rock giants Katatonia, recorded at the London Union Chapel aftershow, a gorgeous concert which is now coming out as a concert film on Blu-Ray, Vinyl and CD/DVD-d.
