The Flower Kings
Big Big Train
All you bog roll collectors show your faces....
Are they a band / artist you like?
Definitely yes. I still remember the moment, when I first heard Sultans Of Swing back in 1978. The band were performing a show at the famous German "Rockpalast" TV-show and I was blown away. The guitar riff of Sultans Of Swing kept ringing in my ears for days. I have been a fan of the band since this very moment.
Rank Their Albums:
01. Making Movies
03. Dire Streits
04. Brothers In Arms
05. Love Over Gold
06. On Every Street
Live Show Experiences:
Saw them live on their OES-Tour in Frankfurt. Quite a relaxed gig. I thought, that everyone in the audience should have had a martini in hand.

The Flower Kings and Pendragon are definitely spinning around the core of my favourites very closely....
I am not an expert, when it comes to judge his solo work, as I only had his first three albums plus Genesis Revisited II. Maybe that is why my verdict on the new album is not as harsh as foxfeeder`s and Sredni`s. The album got some great tunes and arrangements and is definitely much more accessible, than some of his older stuff. I listened to the album several times now, and the more I listen to it, the more I like it.
Rael also sounds similar to the second syllable of Peter`s family name.
I have started watching The Marvelous Mrs Maisel on amazon prime. It is a serial created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, who also created Gilmore Girls. Though the plot is completely different, you find quite a few parallels to GG. The music, the endless talking of the protagonists at top speed, etc. If you liked Gilmore Girls, you will probably like MMM as well, if you didn't, well, I don't know. The story kicks off in the fifties of the last century and describes the life of a young woman, who starts a career as a stand-up comedian out of nothing supported by Lenny Bruce (declaring a truce).
Great actors on there, especially Tony Shalhoub (Monk) and Marin Hinkle (Two And A Half Men).
Check it out....
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon Prime. Takes place in 1958. The set and wardrobe are perfect for the time period. The storyline is about a Jewish wife who takes a shot at stand up comedy. Fabulous! Recommended.
Yes, very nice. My daughter is at home right now and we have returned to Gilmore Girls for a change. I also watch Black Sails, when I get the chance..
Merry Christmas Playlist on amazon prime.
The points system is still there...
Happily married, two kids and one dog.
