Alloy: Episode 25

“Pythagoras with the looking glass…” (playlist)

“… reflects the full moon.” This lyric fragment is from Genesis' opus and prog-rock classic, "Supper's Ready," the featured "long track" from this week's show. If you have never heard this tune, or want to revisit it, you can listen to it in its entirety (for free), here...and, if you are REALLY into it (like me!), check out the live version. It is a perfect time capsule of a band finding its stride musically and theatrically. Plenty of other artists, new and old, as well as other genre-bending tunes were also part of today's melting pot of music. If you missed the “live” show, you can always catch the all-music, 24/7 station. Thanks for listening!
