Soft Machine & Fairport Convention
Lack of action in this forum eh?

OK here`s 2 bands i`ve been listening to a lot lately

If you`ve not heard them before Soft Machine remind me of a kind of more folky Pink Floyd with wierd bits.

Fairport Convention range from having a beach boys style west coast sound on their early albums that became more like traditional English folk as they progressed.

If you want to check them out you could check these songs out...

Soft Machine....

Save Yourself
Moon in June

We Did It Again
Joy of a Toy

Fairport Convention

Tale In A Hard Time
Time Will Show The Wiser
I Don't Know Where I Stand
Meet On the Ledge

Si Tu Dois Partir

Facelift, I don't know im checking the samples, they definitly share the jazz influence of flyd but their not as spacy. Their a little more raw, less polished. I know thats more your thing, but so far and I can't find anything I get into.

Fairport Convention on the other hand, has a ****ty name, but this is pretty good folk, flavorings of other styles, but there is certainly that english, greensleves feel about it. I enjoy this and might actually get some, ill need to dig a little deeper before I give them my money.

Oh and welcome back man, this forum could use a little activity.
