NEKTAR - Don’t remember the future

When Roye Albrighton died in 2016 after a long illness, the future of nectar was uncertain. The surviving hull formation had with drummer Ron Howden only one founding member left in their ranks. But Howden was in bad health. Then there was bassist Tom Fry, in the band since 2014. And of course keyboarder Klaus Henatsch, who had been working with Albrighton since 2007. But would that be enough for a new edition of the band? Now she presents her latest studio work "Megalomania".

A lot has happened since four young Englishmen founded the psychedelically colored prog/rock formation Nektar in Hamburg in 1969. May the musicians and Mick Brockett, who is responsible for their spectacular light effects, never made the big commercial breakthrough - nobody in the scene denies that this formation released some extraordinary records in the seventies, among them "A Tab In The Ocean", "...Sounds Like This" and "Remeber The Future".

Forty years ago, an album called "Selling England By The Pound" was released, which is seen by many Genesis and progressive rock fans as the culmination of a development at the end of which the pioneers, who started as a school band, became the kings of symphonic prog in the seventies. But the process that led to the creation of the milestone was quite problematic, sometimes even torturous. eclipsed tells the story of an album that was to shape an entire genre - and emphasized the origin of the musicians like no other.

Richard Wright died surprisingly at the age of 65 - after a short fight against cancer. Many call him the soul of Pink Floyd, and his musicality and almost unearthly keyboard playing gave the group its unique sound. In the following we pay tribute once again to the musical merits of this exceptional artist.
