LED ZEPPELIN - The last flight of the Zeppelin: the history of "Physical Graffiti" in the

mid-seventies Led Zeppelin had reached its second artistic zenith and documented this in a unique way with "Physical Graffiti", the band's only double album. Until today it is Robert Plant's favourite record with the group, probably also because the formation before and after has never been more expressive and multi-faceted. Released on February 24, 1975, "Physical Graffiti" was the first record in rock history to achieve platinum status through pre-orders alone.

Band in change - PALLAS present themselves fresher than ever after long musical wanderings

When the Scottish neoprog band Pallas was launched in 1980, nobody suspected that four years later they would create a work for eternity with their debut "The Sentinel". With Marillion and IQ she belonged to the spearhead of this genre. Their concerts were and are a truly pompous pleasure for the senses. But their winning streak was short-lived. When the singer Euan Lowson left the band in 1986, it was over at first. Not until 1999 did Pallas reappear, with Alan Reed on the mic and Colin Fraser on the drums. Three studio albums followed, which from a commercial point of view couldn't reach the beginning, but are considered absolute insider tips of the genre. In 2010 Reed went his own way again, and Paul Mackie joined them. Pallas recorded two records with him, most recently "wearewhoweare". 2015 the band consists of the three original members Ronnie Brown (keyboards), Niall Mathewson (guitar) and Graeme Murray (bass) as well as Fraser and Mackie.

After a good start in 1984, the Neoproggers from beautiful Aberdeen took a longer break with "The Sentinel" in the nineties. But in the new millenium the Scots could gain momentum again and presented three studio works. In 2010 they had to take a bitter blow with the departure of their lead singer Alan Reed, who was replaced by Paul Mackie.
