Playlist - 17 August 2013

This week, another healthy serving of prog rock and anything else that fits from Australia and overseas. Some great recent music by Adelaide's Gavin O'Loghlen & Cotter’s Bequest from their 2006 "progressive rock/folk" concept album about emigration to South Australia in the 19th Century, as well as classic songs from Tully, Spectrum and Lobby Loyde. Recent archaeological digging has unearthed possibly the world's first "rock opera" from 1968: "S.F. Sorrow" by The Pretty Things.  And it's happy birthday to the late Kevin Ayers, Colin Moulding (the "other" songwriter in XTC) and Barry Hay (the singer with legendary Dutch group Golden Earring who - incredibly - have been rocking out around Europe and elsewhere since 1961).
