it’s time i injected a little octane in my JamThat’s why I end up with a . am choosing Porcupine Tree The song that would give the weekend a raucous start.
Besides being one’s best drummer prog rock band ever (Gavin Fucking Harrison!) Porcupine Tree is arguably the band that made steven wilson famous. before he went alone, and then went on to make some of them best pop Music of 2010. And Some Of saddest music of any decade.
got the man class, but Porcupine Tree was the most energetic and spontaneous in his music. OK, maybe I remember it that way because I first heard it as a kid – as a freshman just in high school – and I’ve been jamming it ever since.
wilson music Calmed my love for the open road and longest drives. not just because the songs are long – Like all good prog rock – but because I used Porcupine Trees and Steven Wilson concerts as an excuse to go on a solo road trip. All of Texas, Arizona and New Mexico are bound for California. How many miles did I walk to listen to this music? I’ve lost count, but it was worth it every time. Hearing these songs make me feel like I’m on the road again.
And this track, ‘Arrival Somewhere But Not Here’ is originally from Porcupine Tree’s album deadwing (2005.) it version There is a live recording in Chicago’s Park West which was first recorded as a . was issued in concert dvdand, later, a . in two discs Track name compilation. I like to think that because the song is so good, the whole album revolves around it.
Repeat this song over and over and let its layers seep into you. Around 03:46 the cymbals count for guitar distortion at 04:16, and at 06:22, there is a sound of Tool and Radiohead colliding inside the gravity of a black hole. It all leads to Gavin Harrison’s drumming at 07:09, which hits you over the head for more than a minute straight. Meanwhile, a synthesizer floats overhead. God, I love this song – even if it’s about dying in a car accident.
