Kscope The monthly Kscope Podcast is presented by Billy Reeves. A new edition of the podcast will be available each month.

In which your host Billy Reeves is joined by Kavus Torabi from Gong – an in-depth chat about how he was invited by Daevid Allen to take over the orbit of Planet Gong, what it’s like to join one of your favourite bands and, having already had a bit of previous joining a favourite band (Cardiacs) who he’d join next, in the past, given a time machine. PLUS an attempt on coming up with a name to describe the great new crop of southern England based whimsical noisy prog-psyche groups and how they are sympatico with the Canterbury scene.

AND..

Some Iamthemorning news, a spin of the new single from Daniel Tompkins of TesseracT, and tracks from new releases on vinyl from North Atlantic Oscillation and an alumni of both Porcupine Tree and Japan, the one and only Richard Barbieri.

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.
