Mostly Autumn

Postby massos » Sun Sep 29, 2002 1:03 am

Hi,

Anyone at Yestalk a "Mostly Autumn" fan? I'm tempted to try them out but haven't heard anything; I've read some good reviews though.

Which album should I go for. I sort of like the idea of going for the L.O.T.R. tribute since it's a familiar prog theme done well by several prog bands in the past.

Seb,

BIG Mostly Autumn fan here <img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>. Think Gilmour-driven Floyd meets All About Eve meets celtic folk rock.

The best (IMO) of their albums so far is 'The Last Bright Light'. The LOTR album was a kind of filler, okay but their weakest.

They are about to release a double CD anthology called 'Catch The Spirit'. This replaces a single CD anthology released earlier this year (milking the fans?...who knows!)

www.mostly-autumn.com has the latest on Catch The Spirit, coming very soon (like to sell at their extensive UK tour!)

Very melodic, at times intimate, at times grandiose. Check em out!

Hey any New Yorkers intrested in checking out Mostly Autumn, the band will be opening for Nektar at The Town Hall 120 w43 street, New York City, Friday evening, should be a great show. Roye Albrighton and Mick Brocket are back, Remember the Future.

Relayer,

Although a big Mostly Autumn fan, I've yet to see them live (although this will be rectified at the end of this month!)

Did you go to this show? How was it? Would be interested to hear.

Sorry, I didn't get down to the city Friday, so I didn't catch the show, I've only heard one or two things from Mostly Autumn, but I have no idea what the names of the songs were, interesting sound though.

Ed,

I love this album (The Last Bright Light). The tracks quite often take you by surprise, starting off with Irish Folk and finishing in full Progressive Pomp. There aren't any weak tracks, though if you like your prog pure then I imagine some of the more folk oriented tracks may not interest. Mother Nature is an absolute prog fest.

The Pink Floyd comparisons, both in the Male vocals and Guitar work, are spot on. There is also an early Genesis sound (Trespass) but I would also liken them to Barclay James Harvest. Though having said that they are original in their own right.

*phew* glad you like it - always geta bit worried that a recommendation goes down like a lead balloon!

Seb, I know you've met Simon before. Do you live in the same area? (cos they're playing Southampton Brook on the 30th)

Actually Simon, I reckon you'd like this band - I've heard you singing the praises of Capercaille before.

Well I must admit I've never actually heard them . . . it would be good to go see them and meet up but unfortunatley the 30th is definitely a "no on" for me. the Brook is a good little venue though, I've seen Fragile there a couple of times.

Simon.

<hr height=1 noshade id=quote></font id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote>Hi Ed, Sorry for the delay in replying but I have been trying, to no avail, to juggle work to make this gig, but I'm in Denmark.

I have bought the previous album, which in some ways I prefer. It' s more spontaneous, and the final track, Gap is too wide, is one of the best tracks I have ever heard. It's not as progressive and more Irish folkish, but awesome none the less.

Simon, Dr Yes, and myself are going to see IQ in London in December; maybe you could make that?

Their first album (For All We Shared) is even folkier than the second, but contains some good proggy stuff too!

Got the wrong end of the stick about Southampton. <i>I</i> won't be there (they're in Bristol the next night <img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>). Was just pointing it out!

Saw MA at last 2 nights ago at The Fleece in Bristol, and was blown away! Been into their music for a year, and have heard of their live reputation, but my expectations were completely surpassed.
Played a strong 2 hour set, and totally won over the crowd of around 150 (most of who I think had heard little or nothing of their music). Some of the songs they played (which are really worth checking out) were Winter Mountain, Heroes Never Die, The Last Climb, Shrinking Violet, Never The Rainbow, Out of the Inn, and Mother Nature (the kick-ass encore!)
Then got to meet the band after the show - got stuff signed etc. They're a really nice bunch of people to talk to.
Seeing them again in Bath tomorrow!!!

Finally got Mostly Autumn's album The Last Bright Light from amazon.com a few days ago. Great stuff I absolutely love it. Thanks Ed1909 for letting me know about this group. I'll recommend it to all my friends. I'll order another MA album in the next batch from amazon. Any other band I should know of that combines the british folk/accoustic style with the excellent musicanship of prog rock? I need more pleasant surprises like this!

Try the CD "One For The Crow" by Flamborough Head. Actually a Dutch band - not quite a folky as MA; think Camel meets Renaissance.

available from www.gft-cyclops.co.uk

Mostly Who - what - where? <img src=pix/icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>

And yet another band emerges to threaten my rapidly diminishing slush fund for personal recreation - damn you, damn you all to hell.

Ed,

Looks like "The Last Bright Light" in the best in for MA. THough I suppose it will be a while before I can afford it.

Just saw them for the third time on their current tour last night <img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

"The Last Bright Light" is a marvellous album, but I'd recommend the just released 2CD Anthology, "Catch The Spirit". Available here:

Third time eh? You must be pretty impressed.

Will take the recommendation and have a look at the link.

They've just added streaming mp3s to their home page, so they can be investigated before shelling out that hard earned cash!
