    Niacin

    Just getting in to this amazing band who somehow donít seem to have as much presence in Prog circles as their music would suggest . Does anyone have recommendations from the catalogue . The debut seems to be a must have . Maybe they are not fusion or Prog but a bit of both. From what I Ďve heard a fabulous band .

    Only six albums (and one live), so I'd get 'em all! My favorite is Organik. It's already been over a decade since the last one, Krush. I guess it's up to John Novello if they ever do another.

    Were they not talking about a new album and tour a few years back? Maybe Covid stopped it, or maybe I'm just mis-remembering.

    ^^ Not to mention Billy Sheehan is a busy, much in demand bassist.

    I have 3 of their cds. Very energetic progressive music. I pull one out every once in a while and still enjoy them. Very talented trio.

    John said they would be recording another album and touring some years ago. I really hope so. Iíve never seen the band live.

    I traded with Billy Sheehan some bootlegs from Niacin that he didn't have. He send me a signed dvd from Vai's show at the Astoria as a gift.And he put me on the guest list for their show in Belgium.Had a nice talk with him afterwards (most people wanted to see Vai , ha ha).I also send the boots to John Novello , but they never arrived.I can only hope they record some new music , or release a more recent live dvd...

    I like the frenetic Time Crunch and Organik. The earlier ones are a bit more tame, don't really grab me. Got to see them at The Bottom Line in NYC in 2002.
