Ok, you've all obviously got every one of VDGG's brilliant albums?....yes?.... so here's their peel sessions for the BBC.
Apart from a couple of psych tinged tracks from a 1968 'Top Gear' session, there's plenty of sublimely dark prog on offer here.....all without a single electric guitar to be heard.It's also genuinely progressive music, rather than the 'regressive' rock of Yes and ELP,who looked back to classical music rather than try to move to the future. This is what I hope the young Lydon heard in this fantastic group.
