Porcupine Tree - Up The Downstair 1993

UpUp the Downstair is the second studio album by British progressive rock band Porcupine Tree, first released in May 1993. It was originally intended to be a double album set including the song "Voyage 34", which was instead released as a single in 1992, and other material that ended up on the Staircase Infinities EP (1994).

Melody Maker

They've embarked upon a mission impossible: to create a truly Nineties progressive rock soundscape, utilising modern technology but avoiding prog pomposity. And they've managed it with room to spare. It's a strange and wonderful brew, taking in Orb ambience, FSoL dub, Metallica steel and all points in between.

Ambient space dubs, technological cut-ups and Gregorian chants texture the sound, but the fire at the heart of the noise comes from good old guitar. Be warned, there are solos here, but they're played with a force and a purity that defies indulgence.


"Up The Downstair" is an LP that hides many surprises for the attentive listener. After a few spins you realise that even the sounds mixed into the background and he vocal interventions from old "drug" records all play a part in this warm, soothing lysergic tapestry that contains sparse, but matching lyrics.
When I wrote an article on Porcupine Tree last year (published in Crohinga Well 2) I predicted that this act would become a "third way" in New British Psychedelia (the first and second being the psychedelic rock of Bevis Frond and the spacey festival sounds of Ozric Tentacles, of course). This record only confirms my statement. "Up The Downstair" is a record to get incredibly stoned to (and you will...)!


Steven John Wilson (born 3 November 1967) is an English musician, most closely associated with the progressive rock genre. Currently a solo artist, he became known as the founder, lead guitarist, singer and songwriter of the band Porcupine Tree, as well as being a member of several other bands.

Wilson is a self-taught composer, producer, audio engineer, guitar and keyboard player, and plays other instruments as needed, including bass guitar, autoharp, hammered dulcimer and flute. Despite being mainly associated with prog music, his influences and work have encompassed diverse genres such as psychedelia, pop, extreme metal, electronic and jazz, among others, shifting his musical direction through his albums

His concerts incorporate quadraphonic sound and elaborate visuals. He has also worked with artists such as Opeth, King Crimson, Pendulum, Jethro Tull, XTC, Yes, Marillion, Tears for Fears, Roxy Music and Anathema.


No-Man are an English art Rock duo, formed in 1987 as No Man Is an Island (Except the Isle of Man) by singer Tim Bowness and multi-instrumentalist Steven Wilson. The band has so far produced six studio albums and a number of singles/outtakes collections (most notably, 2006's career retrospective, All the Blue Changes).

The band was once lauded as "conceivably the most important English group since The Smiths" by Melody Maker music newspaper, and a 2017 article of Drowned in Sound described them as "probably the most underrated band of the last 25 years".

Originally creating a sample-based proto-trip hop/ambient/electropop-styled music, No-Man has pursued a more organic, diverse and band-oriented sound in subsequent years. Drawing from a diverse mix of singer-songwriter, post rock, minimalist, progressive rock, jazz and contemporary ambient sources for inspiration, No-Man's musical style is distinctive yet difficult to categorise.

The Sound : Jeopardy 1980

Jeopardy is the debut studio album by English post-punk band the Sound, released on 1 November 1980 by record label Korova.

Jeopardy was released in November 1980. It was lauded by critics upon its release, but fared poorly commercially, failing to chart in the UK and with the band's fanbase failing to expand further than a cult following.

With the plaintive intro of the rhythm section, a spidery guitar, and incidental synth wobbles (which all sounds surprisingly Neu!-like), "I Can't Escape Myself" begins the album unassumingly enough until reaching the terse, one-line chorus that echoes the title of the song; suddenly, from out of the blue, all the instruments make a quick, violent, collective stab and retreat back into the following verse as singer Adrian Borland catches his breath.

The reverb placed on his voice is heightened at just the right moments to exacerbate the song's claustrophobic slant. The ecstatic onward rush of "Heartland" forms the back end of a dynamic one-two opening punch, with a charging rhythm and blaring keyboards leading the way.

Sound belonged in the same league as the bands they were compared to and not somewhere in the bushes. Hardly coattail jockeying, the Sound were developing and growing alongside them. If you're thinking this sounds like someone's telling you that you need Jeopardy just as much as you need Kilimanjaro or Unknown Pleasures or Crocodiles, you're right again. [Renascent's 2002 reissue offers a fine remastering job and the four-song Live Instinct EP as a bonus.]

I keep an eye on the time
I catch it standing still

In my hour of need.(3x)

Try to find my place
Sometimes I get so near
I journey aimless days
But always end up here

In my hour of need.(3x)

Deep in the country
The factories hide

Where they make the missiles
That run our lives

Who the hell makes those missiles?(3x)
When they know what they can do?

They've got the money
They've got the know-how
It's all above our heads;
It's coming down now

Missiles cause damage
And make an eerie sound
Missiles leave carnage
Where there once was a town

Who the hell makes them?
Who the hell makes them?
Who the hell makes those missiles?
When they know what they can do?

Brand X : Unorthodox Behaviour 1976

Brand X is a jazz Rock band, originally active between 1975–1980 and 1992–1999. Noted members included John Goodsall (guitar), Percy Jones (bass), Robin Lumley (keyboards), Kenwood Dennard (drums) and Phil Collins - Genesis - (drums). Goodsall and Jones were the sole constant members throughout the band's existence. In 2016, Goodsall, Jones and Dennard reunited with new musicians Chris Clark on keyboards and Scott Weinberger on percussion.
Unorthodox Behaviour is the first album by British jazz fusion group Brand X. It peaked at 191 on the Billboard 200 in 1976, the same year it was released.

This album combines jazz fusion with progressive rock, influenced by their drummer Phil Collins of Genesis. It shows extensive use of improvisation in the extended pieces, which is common in both genres of music. The melody is mainly supported by guitar and bass, most notably on the opening track. Collins' drum work is very fast and shows a difference in his style from his main band. Tracks like "Nuclear Burn" and "Smacks of Euphoric Hysteria" are often cited as a showcase for his drum work.

Phil Collins' seemingly endless well of energy afforded him two careers: one as the drummer/vocalist in Genesis, and a second as a prolific session musician. It was in this second scenario that Collins hooked up with Percy Jones, John Goodsall, and Robin Lumley during sessions for Brian Eno, Eddie Howell, and Jack Lancaster.

The quartet soon formed Brand X, a fusion jazz band that matched the prodigious rhythms of Collins and fretless bassist Jones with the atmospheric melodies of Goodsall and Lumley.

Unorthodox Behaviour sets the stage for what would follow: music that plies the same sonic territory as Weather Report, Mahavishnu Orchestra, and the like, punctuated by the distinctive styles of individual members.

Killing Joke - Killing Joke 1980

Killing Joke are an English rock band formed in October 1978 in Notting Hill, London, England. The original line-up included Jaz Coleman (vocals, keyboards), Paul Ferguson (drums), Geordie Walker (guitars) and Youth (bass).
Their first album, Killing Joke, was released in 1980. After the release of Revelations in 1982, bassist Youth was replaced by Paul Raven. The band achieved mainstream success in 1985 with both the album Night Time and the single "Love Like Blood".
A key influence on industrial rock, their early music was described by critics Stephen Thomas Erlewine and John Dougan as "quasi-metal [...] dancing to a tune of doom and gloom", which gradually evolved over the years, incorporating elements of electronic music, synthpop and gothic rock, though always emphasising Coleman's "savagely strident vocals". Killing Joke have influenced many later bands and artists, such as Metallica, Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden. Coleman and Walker have been the only constant members of the band, the current line-up features all four original members.

Killing Joke is the debut studio album by English rock band Killing Joke. It was released in August 1980 by
The album's lyrics were written by frontman and vocalist Jaz Coleman, and expressed his opinions on issues such as politics, death, hypocrisy, human nature, pollution and exile.

The artwork was based on a photograph by Don McCullin of young rioters trying to escape from clouds of CS gas released by the British Army in Derry, Northern Ireland, on 8 July 1971 during the Troubles.[5] The original picture was taken a few months before the day now known as Bloody Sunday that took place in the same town in early 1972.


The atmosphere's strange
Out on the town.
Music for pleasure
It's not music no more.
Music to dance to
Music to move.
This is music to march to
To war dance!

The war dance
A war dance

Look at graffiti
Scrawled on the wall.
You know the reason
Outside the door.
You have something
Nasty in your mind,
Crawling to get out
To war dance!

The war dance
A war dance

We walk 'round the pitch.
Honesty is sick.
Try to be honest
Look what you get.
The food runs short,
And then the money talks.
One way out-
Your premonition is correct!

The war dance
A war dance

Only a hint of religion
Uncensors to its false depravity
The sound of breaking glass
This is a reflection

Can : Ege Bamyasi 1972

Ege Bamyasi is the fourth studio album by German krautrock band Can which was originally released as an LP in 1972 by United Artists. The album contains the single "Spoon", which charted in the Top 10 in Germany, largely because of its use as the theme of a German TV thriller mini-series called "Das Messer" (The Knife).

The cover artwork, in addition to being a pun on the band's name (as it depicts a can labeled "CAN"), reflects several of the band members' continued interest in traditional music; "Ege Bamyas?" means "Aegean Okra" in Turkish.

With the commercial success of their hit single "Spoon" (which reached #6 on the German charts and sold 300,000 copies), Can was able to hire a large ex-cinema which they used as a part-working, part-living

Ege Bamyasi was recorded by Czukay in the Inner Space studio at Weilerswist, a town near Cologne. It

was originally released in 1972 by United Artists. In September 2004, the album, along with the majority of Can's discography, was remastered and released as a hybrid SACD. The re-release includes a booklet with commentary on the album by David Stubbs, as well as previously unreleased photos of the band.

The success of the song "Spoon" and sales from this album inspired Can to throw a free concert in an attempt to reach a wider audience. The Can Free Concert was filmed by Martin Schafer, Robbie Muller and Egon Mann for director Peter Przygodda at the Cologne Sporthalle on 3 February 1972 and is included on the Can DVD.
Ege Bamyasi has received considerable critical acclaim since its release. Pitchfork Media featured the record at #19 on its "Top 100 Albums of the 1970s"

All the song now
The hiding measure, you won’t get them
And when you’re down you’re down all bound
The crazy town, all way down

If you last long the warning hound
The warning down, you’re all, yeah
The fregging down, they soothe my neck
The fregging town, it’s all down
This walking all around
This walking all through town
Won’t you laugh?

It’s Monday while I write
And better ever laugh alright
Do no lie just all life
Better ever laugh alright that
What time, just my life
Is ever hanging out of the day
A better life, it’s all I like
It’s better walking all around

Ever back, it’s all, it’s all alive
Ever back, it’s all, it’s all alive

Hey you

And at Christmas, riding on her pony
Or she is stepping on the pigman's head
A beautiful blows, I stay at the corner
She is living in and out of tune

It' s A Beautiful Day 1969

It's a Beautiful Day is an American band formed in San Francisco, California, in 1967, featuring vocalist Pattie Santos along with violinist David LaFlamme and his wife, Linda LaFlamme, on keyboards.

David LaFlamme, who as a youth had formerly once performed as a soloist with the Utah Symphony Orchestra, had previously been in the group Orkustra playing five-string violin. The other members of It's a Beautiful Day in its early years were Hal Wagenet (guitar), Mitchell Holman (bass) and Val Fuentes (drums).
 Although they were one of the earliest and most important San Francisco bands to emerge from 1967's social phenomenon Summer of Love, the band never quite achieved the success of contemporaries such as Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and Santana,

The band's signature song "White Bird" was inspired by the experiences David and Linda LaFlamme had while living in Seattle.

The band's debut album, It's a Beautiful Day, was produced by David LaFlamme in Los Angeles, California, and released by Columbia Records in 1969. It features tracks such as "White Bird", "Hot Summer Day", and "Time Is". The album reached number 47 in the U.S. charts and number 58 in the UK. The theme from the song "Bombay Calling" was later used, at a slower tempo, by Deep Purple as the intro to "Child in Time" on its Deep Purple in Rock album.

The vocals and violin playing of David LaFlamme plus Santos's singing attracted FM radio play attention, and nationally, "White Bird" bubbled under Billboard's Hot 100 chart, peaking at number 118.

The band was almost invited to play at Woodstock. When Michael Lang was negotiating with Bill Graham to get the Grateful Dead to appear, Graham insisted Lang put one of two acts that he managed on the bill. Lang then listened to a tape of both It's a Beautiful Day and the other band and liked them so much that he couldn't decide so he flipped a coin and It's a Beautiful Day lost. The band that won was Santana, who became stars overnight.

Although they are not one of the better-known San Francisco bands to have emerged from the ballroom circuit of the late '60s and early '70s, It's a Beautiful Day were no less memorable for their unique progressive rock style that contrasted well with the Bay Area psychedelic scene. Led by David LaFlamme (flute/violin/vocals) and his wife, Linda LaFlamme (keyboards), the six-piece unit on this album vacillates between light and ethereal pieces such as the lead-off cut, "White Bird," to the heavier, prog rock-influenced "Bombay Calling"

It's a Beautiful Day remains as a timepiece and evidence of how sophisticated rock & roll had become in the fertile environs of the San Francisco music scene.

Αν κάποια μέρα ξεχαστείς απ' τ'όνειρό σου
και νιώσεις μόνη σου στου χρόνου τη σιγή
αν ένα βράδυ το φεγγάρι το δικό σου
πέσει στη θάλασσα λιωμένο απ' την αυγή ,

Αν τ' όνομά μου ξεθωριάσει απ' το μυαλό σου
και γίνει μόνο μια σκιά που σε ποθεί
αν στης καρδιάς σου τον παλμό πέσει ομίχλη
και σταματήσει να χτυπά για μια στιγμή

   " Τότε προσπάθησε τους ήχους μου ν' αγγίξεις
     ώσπου τραγούδι να σου στείλουν τα δικά μας τα φιλιά
     ξεφύλλισε ερειπωμένες αναμνήσεις
     ασπρόμαυρες φωτογραφίες που θυμίζουν τα παλιά "

Αν η βροχή , ψυχής λουλούδι δεν ποτίσει
κι οι ρίζες μείνουν διψασμένες για βροχή
αν κάποιες νύχτες διαλύσουνε οι μύθοι
κι η αγάπη φέρει μια αλλόκοτη οργή

   " Τότε προσπάθησε τους ήχους μου ν' αγγίξεις
     ώσπου τραγούδι να σου στείλει η δική μας αγκαλιά
     ξεφύλλισε ερειπωμένες αναμνήσεις
     ασπρόμαυρες φωτογραφίες που θυμίζουν τα παλιά "

Nitzer Ebb - Showtime 1990

Nitzer Ebb produced hard-hitting electronic music with the Teutonic bent and abrasive edge of early industrial music, plus the vocal chanting and beat-heavy flavor of the late-'80s alternative and Balearic dance scene. Formed in Chelmsford, Essex, in 1982 by vocalist Douglas McCarthy, drummer Bon Harris, and keyboard player David Gooday, the group began experimenting with synthesizers and drum pads, fusing the

bandmembers' affinity for dark goth and punk rock with the emerging technology.

After the release of That Total Age, Nitzer Ebb toured Europe with Depeche Mode, and the latter band's pop sensibilities appeared to inspire them. By the time of their second album,

The following year's Ebbhead further consolidated their position with alternative audiences, with at least two well-known singles, "I Give to You" and "Godhead." As a whole, though, the album showed Nitzer Ebb a bit confused as to where industrial music was going. Nitzer Ebb virtually disappeared from active music-making for the next four years,

Having arguably perfected their original formula on Belief -- as well as reaching its limitations -- Douglas McCarthy and Bon Harris started to experiment in a variety of different directions on Showtime, resulting in their best album.

Showtime is the third album of the British EBM group Nitzer Ebb. It featured two successful singles, "Lightning Man" and "Fun to be Had," the latter of which was later remixed by George Clinton. "Getting Closer" was also released as a single.

Showtime doesn't waste a note (it's not even 40 minutes long) and aims for full attack on all fronts. It doesn't hurt that the album is bookended by two of the band's best-ever singles. "Getting Closer" captures an atmosphere of impending, imminent doom better than just about anything outside of prime Killing Joke, while the heavy synth distortion makes the track rock, all without using guitars.

The off-kilter cabaret influence crops up throughout the album, with worthy examples including "Nobody Knows," a slow bluesy crawl, while "One Man's Burden" in particular is a highlight of Harris' expanding musical reach, with subtle rhythm shifts and orchestrations showing how soft can work for impact just as well as loud.
