STEVE THORNE provoziert bewusst mit wissenschaftskritischen Verschwörungstheorien

The Englishman Steve Thorne is a headstrong, non-conformist spirit, but also a strange contemporary. Strongly rooted in the progressive, he combines different styles like folk and indie with it without blinkers, but lets the holy (puristic) Prog-Gral pass by. With his latest album "Levelled - Emotional Creatures: Part 3" he follows up his debut "Emotional Creatures: Part One" (2005) and "Part Two: Emotional Creatures" (2007). Musically, it's definitely an exciting new work - but in terms of content he addresses highly controversial, even strange topics, criticizes science as an authoritarian religious community, considers the moon landing a "fake" and discusses long outdated theories such as the one that the earth is flat ("level") and does not revolve around the sun ...

eclipsed: Stylistically you move on "levelled" from Indie and Folk à la R.E.M. to Prog in the tradition of Pink Floyd and Genesis. A desired mix?
