Ok, this isn’t really too much of a surprise, but I still had high hopes. UKZ are a new prog supergroup. With Trey Gunn on Warr guitar. But, hmmm. I think the most enthusiasm I can summon up is, “neat bass fill on the warr, oh cool, there’s a violin.” and Louisa’s comment “is this German?” probably sums it up. Shame. Guess I was hoping the band would be pretty kick ass, provide me with lots of Warr ideas, and generally be good. But, looks like they won’t be a patch on Crimson or Porcupine Tree. Shame.
Disappointment of 2009: Number 1 – UKZ
