1 June 2010: Declan Burke, t, Inquisitor Betrayer, Yes

This week we'll begin with selections from Inquisitor Betrayer's upcoming releases: Beowulf & Gilgamesh

  We'll also feature cuts from Progrockrecords artists Declan Burke and "t"

Dec Burke is a UK based vocalist/guitarist who has performed recorded, written with Darwin’s Radio, and Frost*, toured and supported Spock’s Beard and Dream Theater.
Destroy All Monsters is his first solo effort following his departure from Darwin’s Radio.
Written recorded and produced by Dec at his own studio, the album is high energy, but, has some very melodic softer tones. The album contains performances by Nathan King (Frost* / Level 42) and Carl Westholm (Carptree / Jupiter Society).

German multi-instrumentalist, singer, producer and control freak “t” is back with his 3rd album. After fronting german progrock masterminds “scythe” and 2 highly acclaimed solo albums, he took four years to write, perform, mix, produce and co-master “anti-matter poetry”, a 68 minute concept album. t, again, played all the instruments and sang all parts here.
t has always been a musician. his parents had him classically educated as a piano player as well as a singer from early childhood on, but as the girls seemed to fancy guitar players more, his main interest shifted there at a stage in his not-quite-so-early-childhood. Today he admits to the fact of being a strictly average musician with many instruments. From early band efforts on, t has also always been interested in sound issues and thus kept on learning how to arrange, record, mix, and produce. Although all of his solo albums feature him as the sole instrumentalist and singer, “Anti-Matter Poetry” is his first effort to also do all the sound work by himself. Only the final mastering was transferred to frequency wizard Jürgen Lusky - with t assisting, of course.
In his daytime job, t teaches teaching to teachers and teaches himself. However, he still does not suffer from any mental disfunction grave enough to be diagnosed, apart from having a phd in classics. He is married to the renowned artist and writer Katia Tangian and father of a daughter.

 This week's classic album is Yes Close to the Edge. The band's fifth album it was released in September, 1972.
