Playlist - 14 March 2015

This week, another diverse serving of prog rock and anything else that fits from Australia and overseas, featuring music from Perth bands Lacrymae, Over Unity and The Lammas Tide, the now disbanded Adelaide band Unitopia and that band's nominal successor, the ponderously named United Progressive Fraternity. And between 8pm and 9pm, more than a little inspiration from - and with - the late author Terry Pratchett; and after 10pm, the late Daevid Allen (Gong)

The fine print:
The whole of life is just like watching a film. Only it’s as though you always get in ten minutes after the big picture has started, and no-one will tell you the plot, so you have to work it out all yourself from the clues.
- Terry Pratchett

It’s still magic even if you know how it’s done
