    Prog in 2029...

    What will artists considered "prog" in 2029 sound like? Will there still be bands that go out of their way to sound like something from 1974?

    Well if they are doing it 45 years after the fact, no reason to think they won't be doing it 55 years after the fact.

    I'm sure Neo-Prog will still be going strong.

    Boxsets will be even more rewarding and interesting than today. Especially Ed Jobson's.

    That's because they'll feature his music for the 2024 commercials for the re-launch of Quisp, Quake, and Quangeroos.

    There are classical orchestras who go out of their way to sound like something from 1700, and jazz bands who go out of their way to sound like something from 1919 or 1925, so yes.

    Atheists will have destroyed all prog. Guitars and vinyl records will be illegal, and listening to Rap Music made on laptop computers via a streaming service for at least nine hours a day will be mandated by the Feminazi enforcers of the SJW Dictatorship.

    I was a Quisp kid - never got on with the Quake types.

    2029 prog will be less about adapting older forms of music than adapting ancient instruments. People will start playing guitars again - the lutes of the 20th century.

    Quisp is still available, but no sign of a Quake re-launch. But perhaps by 2029. If I recall they tasted the same? Just different shapes?

    FYI, Quisp is a former Trotskyite (as were most denizens of Planet Q) but is now a Democratic Socialist as far as I can make out. Quaker Oats is kleptocratic shameless American capitalist organization that co-opted the people’s cereal for crass earthly profit.

    We all like prog and identify prog by certain attributes of the music, however difficult it is to name those attributes. If the music veers off so much that it no longer has those attributes, it is no longer prog. It is something else. A new genre.

    It's kinda like starting with some yellow paint. You can change the color by adding other pigments, but if you change it too drastically, say by adding too much blue to make it green, it is no longer yellow. It is a something else. A new color.

    So by definition, that which we will call prog in 2029 (or 2059) will have the required attributes and sound reminiscent of that which we call prog today. Otherwise, it's not prog.

    2029 will be the 40th anniversary of the Crimson "definitive edition" cds...they should remaster them.
