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

Presented by Mr Jerry Ewing, the editor and founder of PROG magazine and the host of the annual Progressive Music Awards.

The magazine just reached 100 editions, so we thought it’s high time we asked Jerry to give us a golden hour of his top Kscope tracks, his memories of hearing them for the first time, their post-rock and psychedelic qualities, how they fit into the Universe that he’s created at Prog - and that time we were dancing to Danny Cavanagh’s twelve inchers…

Kscope Podcast Ninety-Two – Anathema's Daniel Cavanagh Solo Album

Monochrome is the beautiful solo album from Daniel Cavanagh, a songwriter and frontman in the multi award-winning avant-garde band Anathema. We hear from Daniel during Anathema’s world tour, talking about the advantages and disadvantages of making an LP outside the warm comforts of the traditional group dynamic.

Plus breathtaking music from Nordic Giants – who have made a film about the simple things we can all do to save humanity and (in the spirit of the project) provided themselves with their own soundtrack PLUS a return (of sorts) of chart-topping Liverpudlians Mansun.

Kscope Podcast Ninety – Tangerine Dream and White Moth Black Butterfly Special

In this episode - some big announcements with some big names.

TANGERINE DREAM, the group that invented kosmiche, have a new LP coming out on Kscope. Edgar Froese has, sadly, joined the cosmic jokers in the sky, but he left instructions behind for his bandmates: we hear from Thorsten Quaeschning and Ulrich Schnauss on the creation of the new album and the political & societal conditions that helped formed the music of TD and their contemporaries.

DANIEL TOMPKINS, the singer of one of the UK’s biggest Progressive metal bands (Kscope’s TesseracT) invites presenter Billy Reeves to Mansfield in the coal-mining heartland of Nottinghamshire to talk about the disciplines of a professional singer and his new album as WHITE MOTH BLACK BUTTERFLY.

ANATHEMA are in the middle of a world tour but took time out to pick up their PROGRESSIVE MUSIC AWARDS ALBUM OF THE YEAR in London recently. To celebrate, there’s a new video for "Can’t Let Go" – and a video for guitarist/songwriter DANIEL CAVANAGH’s new solo track "The Exorcist" from his forthcoming LP Monochrome, we’ll hear snippets from both plus a snippet of LUNATIC SOUL’s new album, the talented creation by MARIUSZ DUDA , the bassist of one of Europe’s most influential groups RIVERSIDE.
