Description/Reviews
Drawing our influence from the great Prog Rock masters of the 1970’s, Mimes On Rollercoasters™ music delivers something for everyone.  Tagged as Classic Style Prog Rock, Rock it! boasts catchy melodies, intriguing lyrics, and rich vocal harmonies.  You will be hard pressed to find a similar comparable album.  Mimes On Rollercoasters™ music truly is unique.  And for that, we make no apologies!
Although not specifically billed as a concept album, one may argue that many elements of Rock it! would seem to suggest such intent.  Perhaps that’s due to our past concept album history.  Rock it! - centered around the plight of the middle-class, middle-aged American, holds the futuristic hope that one day humans will venture beyond the “home turf” and explore new worlds.  But at the same time Rock it! remains well grounded in the reality of life on planet Earth.

The Unforgiven was inspired by unforgivable situations that people face, starting with the title track based on an old classic western movie from the late 40s, where a retired sheriff avenges the death of his younger brother at the hands of cattle rustlers in a town called “Tombstone”. The other tracks deal with unrequited love, time and space travel, dominance, suicide, the loss of a child, selfish Pride and ending with an act of the Gods to parish the city of Pompeii

Description/Reviews
Informed by sun kissed psychedelia and inspired by the more Jazz Fusion influenced Prog Rock bands of the 1970s, Monarch are a throwback to the heady days of the post-psychedelic era where the blurring of boundaries was common and cornucopia of musical styles were up for grabs. Hailing from the fertile Southern California Psych scene, Monarch connect the dots between classic California rock, sweeping Prog Rock soundscapes, languid pastoral Psychedelic jams, explosive Jazz Rock fusion and the vivid, expansiveness of early 1990s British Shoegaze.

Description/Reviews
What hasn't changed for Assignment is their exploration of melodic and progressive power metal. Yet this is not overly complex stuff. The usual suspects occur with tempo and time signature changes, and particular instruments offering representative solo parts. The band's goal is not to confuse you or leave you perplexed, but to demonstrate some creativity and entertain. The glue that holds everything together is Assignment's inherent commitment to melody and groove which allows the arrangements to be both intriguing and accessible.

Line-up
Crispin Case-Leng - everything

Description/Reviews
Now readying his first full length album in A View From Another Dimension, it charts his progression as a songwriter and musical explorer. Another collection of vastly differing songs, from the salsa brass of Titled (think Muse’s Knights of Cydonia) to the mellow Pink Floyd references of Demons Gold Buys Angels Blood and I can’t Save Myself. There is an element of Syd Barrett in the slightly scrappy production, it’s all pieced together with a wild-eyed passion. But that is where the album’s true character lies, a scrapbook of melodies, influences and musical ideologies. (Phil Weller at manchesterrocks.webs.com)
