As the name implies, the show, “Prog-Scure: Obscure Bands on the Prog-Rock Scene (Past & Present),” focuses on artists that either time has forgotten or current artists who still remain shamefully undiscovered or ignored by the masses. Additionally, Zap may also play lesser-known tracks—”B” sides, rarities, bonus songs—from popular bands on the Prog-Rock scene, or Prog-Rock music released by artists not even normally associated with the genre itself.
Each show Woody & Suzi Harris will take you on a whirlwind tour of progressive rock from the hidden gems that you have yet to discover to the greatest prog of all time. You will hear the newest prog as well as some of your favorite classics. Along the way, you will get the behind the scenes stories, meet the artists involved, and take a sonic journey into themed sections of music. Past themes have included: Technology in Prog, History shows(an ongoing exploration of the cornerstones of progressive evolution), Archaeology, Prog Folk, The Backward Masking show, Moogs Ahoy, A Tribute to Eddie Jobson, Tangential Drift, and many many more. Please come and join the revolution.
Underdog Prog is committed to playing the b-sides, under played and under rated artists and songs. As an avid album listener I know the best song on the album is often not the single. You have to listen to the whole record to get to that deep cut…
You will hear many local Portland bands, unsigned progressive bands as well as classic progressive music I was raised with. The likes of Gentle Giant, Yes, King Crimson, King’s X, Rush and Zappa.
