February 22 ·. We'll be playing another acoustic set this evening at PLAYLIST: The Arches. We're currently putting together an album, which is a collection of short, slightly quirky, rock tracks with wonky harmony and bonkers lyrics. And we'd like to see how everyone reacts to these. We'll slip in some of the more angular, frantic stuff from the earlier records if people's faces look encouraging.
Setlist A Formal Horse. Morning Jigsaw Sexbooth To The Beach (And Not Back) Fleeting Silkworm I Lean Unison 2 The King Dim Rosensage. And now for a double setlist with The Gift. First playing songs of their latest album Land of Shadows and after a short break playing a big chunk of their first and epic album Awake and Dreaming. This is where the crowd got united. That was easy to see. And I can say for myself that I was even most impressed with the second part, the mid ship of the epic Awake and Dreaming album. I am sure there will be great albums to be enjoyed next year. PS: Listen to the DPRP Radio British Prog LIVE special!
A Formal Horse: Morning Jigsaw. A Formal Horse are a dapper, sharp-suited bunch; why, even their equine mascot sports a top hat and tails, standing haughtily on its hind legs like a character out of TV’s Hector’s House. Morning Jigsaw, the Southampton quartet’s second EP, combines nervy, twitching rhythms – think XTC playing Voivod’s back catalogue – with pure-as-the-driven female vocals. The result is oddly intoxicating. The fourth album from Norway’s Magic Pie is indebted heavily to classic Styx, right down to the hyperbolic Dennis DeYoung-like vocals and clunking James ‘JY’ Young-style guitar tones. This, of course, is no bad thing. The ridiculously ambitious 27-minute title track is the highlight, comin’ atcha like The Grand Illusion with extra steak, kidney and gravy.
A Formal Horse is a new progressive rock quartet based in Southampton. Although the band's sound is difficult to pinpoint, their dense instrumental passages are reminiscent of King Crimson and Mahavishnu Orchestra, whilst Francesca Lewis' lead vocals evoke the whimsical surrealism of the 1970s Canterbury scene. However, A Formal Horse go beyond simply regurgitating the music of their predecessors.
