>Bands like the Mars Volta, Tool, and Radiohead - these bands are the future of progressive music.
>Bands like the Flower Kings and Transatlantic? The DEATH of progressive music. These are the bands that reinforce every prejudice people have about progressive rock: old-fashioned, pompous, pretentious, hung-up on sci-fi concepts - that for me is rubbish. But there's a new wave of bands that for me are being influenced just as much by hip-hop as they are King Crimson or Godspeed You Black Emperor and bands like us as well, I hope.
>For me, Transatlantic and the Flower Kings - and I have heard these bands, unfortunately - they're following the blueprint from 1972 so closely; it's completely pointless and redundant. They're never going to better the originals, anyway - why bother? Whatever's going around should be part of their musical vocabulary.
>I don't particularly dig generic music, whether it's hardcore metal or hip-hop, even down to the prog bands you mentioned. They're following a formula way too closely. For me,being progressive is about taking the word at face value: it a band is going to try to be progressive, they shouldn't be looking at the past - they should be looking at everything that's going on around them now, from hip-hop to trip-hop to death metal to trance. The word 'progressive' is about the FUTURE."
