SUPERTRAMP - 40 years "Crime Of The Century"

Actually they were already dead. Even dead as a doornail. After two albums that sold as well as soap-flavoured chocolate and, according to guitarist/singer Roger Hodgson, didn't sound much better, the chapter Supertramp seemed to be over in 1971 - because everything really went wrong. The band, which at that time consisted of Kevin Currie, Frank Farrell, Dave Winthrop, Rick Davies and Hodgson, fell apart after a disastrous Scandinavian tour.

UNIVERS ZÉRO - Forty years in the opposition

For prog fans who appreciate music with unusual instrumentation, Univers Zéro is very popular.

Time for a look back at a group that belongs to the Kammerprog or the Prog subgenre Rock In Opposition (RIO), but in later years also struck more minimalist notes.
