    Would you please be so kind to answer some questions for Dutch progmagazine iO Pages? Email will do fine.

  6. Seriously great work. I just picked up my Classic Rock PROG Mag and was delighted to see you listed on Prognosis 2.2. Really proud that Australia is once again producing some great prog music. As soon as I get paid, I’ll be sure to buy. From what I heard, its up there in my top 5 for 2011. Good luck with your future success, as I am sure it will come.

  7. Hello Ben,

    In the interview you did with Dutch prog mag iO Pages you stated that Syd Barrett’s “Opel” screams for a full band arrangement. Maybe it’s nice to know that German band RPWL did such an arrangement:

    It’s on their album “Stock” (2003).

    I hope you like the fact that we’re promoting your nice album in our Dutch CD library (see link).

  10. Hello,
