Learning Some Discipline.

Up close and personal with the Spider.

This is my friend, Ms. Spiny Orb Weaver. She has been telling me to post some Progrocking stuff for weeks now. She calls to me at all hours of the day and night, "When will there be the Progrock?" "Can I have some Progrock now?"

Now, OK? Now you can have your precious Progrock. Jesus. Enough already.

This here is some swirling, drony, psychedelic shit. There are a few contemporary acts involved in this mix, but I thought most of them dovetailed nicely with the pure, vintage proggy goodness that makes up the remainder. I tried to keep the bonged-out hippy jamming to a minimum, leaving it only to a few hardened profesionals to take it to that outer limit. The rest is butter-smooth beauty.

For delicious Progrock, first you take 2 cups of jazz and 1/2 a cup of classical music, throw it in the bowl with 1 1/2 cups of rock 'n' roll. Hit it with a hand mixer for a minute until it becomes creamy. It is important to add Acid at this stage, and hash oil to taste, otherwise you run the risk of "jazz fusion," and no one wants that. Pour into two greased loaf pans and bake at 218 degrees Celsius, for two hours. Until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Ready for Progrock!

This recipe makes two loaves, enough for everyone!

You should just burn me a copy of every comp you do. Just like old times except all digital and shit.

Would save me the download effort.

That and we work together and shit and stuff and things and whatever.

See, this blog cuts out the middleman, the "cd" of the "custom cd comp", as it were. Hot, fresh tracks at the click of a button. Isn't technology wonderful?

Don't be so lazy!
