		Progressive Music Publications Listing
		======================================

When contacting any of the publications listed here it is probably a
good idea to enclose an IRC (International Reply Coupon) or two to
assure that it is easy for them to respond with subscription info and
maybe sample issues. It is probably fair to enclose a return address
label too, if it is not hard for you to do so. It is a good idea to
make it as simple as possible for them to respond to you. Prices and
addresses listed may be inaccurate or out of date. No guarantee of
accuracy is implied and we hope that those who are in contact with
the publications listed here will help keep this as up to date as
possible. Please mail your revisions to Phil.Kime@ed.ac.uk.

To prevent any misunderstandings we advise you to confirm
subscription fees or costs before mailing any payment to any place
listed here. Addresses and prices are subject to unexpected changes
and it is highly likely that some of these publications no longer
exist. If you are in recent contact with any of the publications
listed here please inform the FAQ maintainer.

	   =================================================
	   European Paper Sizes (As Shown In `Format' Field)
	   =================================================

Common paper sizes employed in Europe and Japan. Many of the listings
use this format because the basic list was done in France. In some
cases the entry may be approximated with publications from the US or
other areas not using the European paper standard sizes.

A3 = 11.7" x 16.5"      (roughly equivalent to US standard 11"x17")
A4 = 8.3"x 11.7"        (roughly equivalent to US 8"x11" standard)
A5 = 5.8" x 8.3"
B4 = 10.1" x 14.3"
B5 = 7.2 = x 10.1"
B6 = 5.1" x 7.2"

		      ===========================
		      Non-Periodical Publications
		      ===========================

This section covers a few books or any other single publications
concerning progressive music. Also listed are a few well known
publications on some "core" figures. Lists of magazines, fanzines,
newsletters etc. follow.

::Title::
  "Uncle Joe's Guide to Progressive Rock"
::Comments::
  A somewhat one dimensional, but fairly informative guide to the
  histories of Pink Floyd, Yes, Genesis, The Moody Blues and ELP.
  Not very well written.

	       ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

::Title::
  "La Discographie du Rock Francais"
::Comments::
  La Discographie du Rock Francais is a very good survey of all
  progressive music in our country. In spite of the title, 95% of the
  survey is indeed progressive (including Jazz rock, Zeuhl and some
  free rock). Musea mention they will soon issue a new edition, more
  complete. The previous one is very good and in both in French and
  English. The authors are Francis Grosse and Bernard Gueffier.

	       ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

::Title::
  "Il Retorno del Pop Italiano"
::Comments::
  Despite the title, a good guide to Italian progressive rock.
  Written in Italian.

	       ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

::Title::
  "Brian Eno: His Music and the Vertical Colour of Sound"
::Author::
  Eric Tamm
::Publisher::
  Faber and Faber
::Year::
  1989
::ISBN::
  0-571-12958-7
::Comments::
  Very informative including discographies. Some people find Tamm's
  style annoying. About $13 in the US and 15 in the UK.

	       ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

::Title::
  "Robert Fripp: From King Crimson to Guitar Craft"
::Author::
  Eric Tamm
::Publisher::
  Faber and Faber
::Year::
  1990
::ISBN::
  0-571-12912-9
::Comments::
  Much better Tamm effort with interesting descriptions of his
  experiences on a guitar craft course from the days when Fripp still
  used to teach them. Good history of Crimson. Recommended although
  still rather poorly written. About $13 in the US and 15 in the UK.

	       ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

::Title::
  "Wrong Movements: A Robert Wyatt History"
::Author::
  Michael King
::Publisher::
  SAF Publishing
::Year::
  1994
::ISBN::
  0-946719-101-1
::Comments::
  A very good book concerning a great man. The book is largely a list
  of just about every live appearance the man has made and with whom.
  The list of "whos" is astounding. Some nice quotes and historical
  material. Highly recommended.  14.95 in the UK. No idea about the
  US.

	       ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

::Title::
  "File Under Popular: Theoretical and Critical Writings on Music"
::Author::
  Chris Cutler
::Publisher::
  November Books (UK)/Autonomedia (US)
::Year::
  1985 (reprinted 1991 and 1993)
::ISBN::
  0-936756-34-9 (pbk)
::Comments::
  Chris Cutler's perspective on the meaning of the word
  "progressive". Concentrates on what he perceives to be central
  radical musicians of our time. This is mainly involved with The
  Residents, Sun Ra and Henry Cow.

	       ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

::Title::
  KRAUTROCKSAMPLER: One Head's Guide to the Great Kosmiche Musik-1968
  Onwards
::Author::
  Julian Cope
::Publisher::
  Head Heritage
::Year::
  1995
::ISBN::
  0-9526719-1-3
::Comments::
  Despite its many flaws, this first edition (yes, a second one is in
  the works) works because of Cope's obvious love for the music.
  There are several inexcusable omissions (hopefully to be corrected
  in the coming edition) and the overall organization leaves
  something to be desired. This is, however, a great place for the
  uninnitiated to start, and will be of interest to the mid-level
  Krautrock fan.  Krautrock fans of great experience will probably
  find nothing of value here.

  One issue I saw had an interview with Wyatt and part 2 of one with
  Richard Sinclair (Caravan, Camel, Hatfield & the north) and they
  seem to cover a lot of the Canterbury UK scene. The next issue
  covered more obscure stuff I mostly wasn't too familiar with. Each
  issue comes with a 7" EP. Subscription >is $24 for 4 issues, but
  you have to send an International Money order which costs a few
  more bucks. But I can find them occasionally at Tower Records or
  another local store. It's published by the guitar player from Bevis
  Frond.

Art Rock magazine is also the host of Si-Wan records, which recently
has reissued many Italian and Spanish prog rarities on CD and LP.
These include Tarantula, Los Canarios, Crack, Bloque, Picchio Dal
Pozzo, Alphataurus, Celeste, and many many more.  Art Rock magazine
has covered italian progressive rock scene in detail through 4
issues. All articles are written in Korean.

I have just received a copy of issue 7 of Art Rock and am very
impressed. Unfortunately, I don't read Korean but this is a really
amazing magazine. The issue I have is huge (200+ pages), with
hundreds of photos of album sleeves (most in full colour). This issue
is a `British Rock Special' with histories and discographies of Yes,
ELP, Gentle Giant, Van der Graaf Generator etc. There's also hundreds
of reviews, rare concert photos, an article on Roger Dean's art with
loads of full colour pictures, articles on famous British labels
(Harvest etc.). It even has sections on progressive Jazz anf
Classical. All in all, quite the best prog magazine I've seen ...
such a shame you don't get this sort of thing over here. Highly
recommended, especially if you speak Korean ... actually, it's almost
learning it just to read this!

  The format is beautiful, lots of money must go into the production
  of each issue. The problem for most people in the US would be that
  it's in Dutch, I don't know if they publish in English.  Luckily I
  can speak Dutch at an average level and worked my way through a few
  of the MANY new release reviews they run. Bands featured this month
  include For Absent Friends, Shadowland, Lives @ Times, Legend,
  Magnum, and All About Eve amongst many others. There was also live
  reviews of Pallas, Everon, Red Jasper, and Egdon Heath. If you're
  interested, I also have several addresses of mail order catalogs in
  England.

  Will send a free trial issue for SAE/IRC. ProgNetik Magazine mostly
  contains reviews of new progressive and symphonic rock releases
  worldwide. Also; competitions, essays and in most issues there is a
  'special' feature on one band, often including interviews etc. For
  example, issue #3 contains a Jadis Special with the story of the
  band, a discussion of their music and a medium length interview
  with Jadis leader Gary Chandler. And so on.. Being a Scandinavian
  magazine, ProgNetik has a *slight* emphasis on the Scandinavian
  prog-scene.

  About the publication: PROGRESSION is an 80-120 page, quarterly
  magazine devoted to news, reviews, interviews and features
  involving progressive rock artists new and old, in the United
  States and overseas. We cover the so called "mainstream"
  progressive acts such as IQ, Yes, ELP, Jethro Tull Marillion, etc.
  We include occasional features and reviews on more "serious" prog
  artists such as Univers Zero and Richard Pinhas.  And we strive to
  highlight emerging talent in the progressive realm: Echolyn,
  Prometheus, Ozric Tentacles, Episode, Cairo, Djam Karet, Ancient
  Vision, Anglagard, Witsend, Kalaban, plus many, many others. A
  typical edition of the magazine includes exclusive, in-depth
  interviews with progressive rock artists (past issues have featured
  the likes of Keith Emerson, Greg Lake, Jordan Rudess, Mastermind,
  nglagrd, Bill Bruford, Marillion's Mark Kelly, Nik Turner's
  hawkwind, etc.), plus dozens ofconcert and album reviews, tour
  intineraries and information on new album and video release.

  70's & 80's, and continues to expose folks to new & interesting
