    Definitely not "70's prog" in any way, but falling under the "progressive/experimental rock" umbrella is Dureforsog. Hard to describe what they sound like, but try to imagine Wire, Faust, Faith No More and a pop band were part of a weird gene splicing experiment. Kinda.

    I like their album Engine Machine.

    Very good call, Richard, regarding Causa Sui (the only group I know from the names mentioned). Their Live in Copenhagen set is excellent.

    Mads Vinding,Group - Danish Design is a real good Jazz Rock Prog album

    but for my $$ nothing beats the first 3 Secret Oyster albums
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    LOL! I think I've seen this LP listed in one of those "50 worst album covers" features. L-R: a gangster, a Chippendale's dancer, a college professor, and a porn star. Seated: a tennis pro.

    You're right, though, it is good music.

    R.I.P. Kim

    With a wider perspective, Palle Mikkelborg have done some nice crossover stuff, bordering prog...

    The CD is on Paisley Press, which is definitely a pirate label.

    Klaus Schønning has been very productive over the years (25 solo albums), but I'm not sure he is internationally known. He is generally a bit too 'New Age'y for me.
    The album mentioned above has recently been re-recorded: https://www.schonning.dk/News/2018/9/18/Lydglimt+II+

    SUME (from Greenland actually) - three albums in the 70's (the third is also in full on YT) and one in the 90's (also on YU).

    Malik Høegh (12-string acoustic guitar, electric guitar, vocals),
    Per Berthelsen (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, vocals),
    Hans Fleischer (drums, 1972-77),
    Erik Hammeken (guitar, bass, 1972-77),
    Emil Larsen (bass, vocals),
    Sakio Nielsen (organ),
    Karl Sivertsen (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, vocals),
    Nikolaj Steenstrup (Mellotron, percussion)



    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    ^ A buddy of mine kept their second album, the one with the eskimo title. He didn't really enjoy it too much, but thought it fanciful to possess such a piece of 'curiosa'; the sales sticker on the record (secondhand, obviously) said "Jazz-rock from Faroe islands", I recall.

    But yes, they were from Greenland.

    That first Sume album is apparently the biggest-selling Greenlandic album ever. I’ve seen them billed as “prog” and “psych,” but neither is strictly accurate, mainly because they’re a band that defies easy categorization. I hear elements of both of the above, plus folk-rock (quite a lot), some rootsy rock (à la the Band), touches of jazz and some good old indigenous influences, the thing that really makes them special. It’s that last tendency that pushes this over into “something really special” territory. It may not be any one genre all the way, but it emerges simply sounding like Sume, and that’s really all it needs to be. I really like this album!

    A new discovery I’ve never even heard of before: Møn Rock from 1979. Some nice guitar playing on this!

    I suspect that it remains largely unknown vecause Vernon Joynson and (to a lesser extent) DE Asbjornsen usually stopped their books circa 76/77

    Too bad I don't read Danish, for it looks like an interesting article

    Ho Chi Minh was a Viet communist that lead to modern Vietnam (can't say it's worse off if it had remained French or became US), while Pol Pot was a Khmer Rouge and the latter's terror reign in Cambodia was ended by the heirs pf Ho Chi Minh (the city of Hanoï not yet renamed as such, if memory serves).

    I somehow always thought him to be a Lebanese ping-pong player.

    I believe Zeuhlmate's point was that whereas some leftist rockers kept their Ho Chi Minh-banners high as a token to "liberation-aspects" of the global Marxist-Leninist movement during the 70s, others eventually did indeed fall down on the Maoist (i.e. anti-Soviet) side of things, by which their affiliation tipped over the side - as with Savage Rose's grotesque support for Albania's dictator Enver Hoxha - a man who'd proceed to have dozens of his own citizens executed for merely listening to "western decadent popular music" on the radio as late as the early 80s. And the Maoist movement was -significant- in Scandinavia, with substantial support for (Mao's apostle) Pol Pot among (especially) Norwegian and Danish radical academics/students etc. who'd later become influential in society and in many cases still are.

    Interesting post, though somewhat dangerous as it flirts with the anti-politics policy of the site, but I started it .

    western-central Europe was no different as some communists were rooting for Mao, others for Stalin, etc....

    What I personally meant is that it is the same Vietcongs that "liberated" the country in 72 that invaded its "supposedly frendly, because both were maoists" neighbour Cambodia in 75 on humanitarian grounds, to stop the genocide. Just for that, the Vietnamese junta (or whatever it was) gained much respectability in many places across the planet. Therefore chanting Ho Chi Minh in 79 was somewhat +/- more acceptable than Matching Mole's Little Red Record artwork in 73
