Profuna Ocean (NL) / Profuna Ocean - Biography
« on: January 06, 2016, 02:00:09 PM »
A short Bio on Profuna Ocean, taken from the band´s website:

Profuna Ocean is an alternative progrock band from the Netherlands, founded in 2008. With their sequences of thought out compositions, vivacious melodies and powerful rock sounds their music seems to be constantly working toward some kind of musical trip and introduces the listener to the world of Profuna Ocean.
In 2009 the band released their first album Watching The Closing Sky, which received international attention with airplay in the radio show of Sander Guis on 3FM (Dutch radio) and the radio show of Rick Wakeman (Yes) in England. In the next period the band worked on their live performance with a number of shows on many different stages and shared the stage with bands like Focus, Knight Area and Racoon. In 2013 Profuna Ocean won the award for “best progressive rock band of The Netherlands” (Dutch Exposure Project) with their song Waiting For The Fall.
Meanwhile, the band was working on their second studio album, refining and redefining their own unique sound. The period of writing, arranging and recording the album In Vacuum was an intense period of development where they found themselves and took their music to a whole new level.
On the one hand, it still has progressive influences from bands like Porcupine Tree and The Pineapple Thief. On the other hand, this album is especially about the power and intensity of their music, inspired by bands like Anathema. Driven by the idea that music is always at its most powerful when it comes straight from the heart, with In Vacuum the band is truly blossoming into something extraordinary and very special.
From the start of the recordings, the band used a high standard for the album. To finish the results at the right level, they teamed up with the Swedish producer Jens Bogren for mastering the album. The second studio album of Profuna Ocean, called In Vacuum, shows who they really are!

Plackband (NL) / Plackband - Biography
« on: January 06, 2016, 07:58:33 AM »
I found a short Plackband biography on Prog Archives:

Halfway the Seventies the Dutch progrock formation Plackband was founded with this line-up:

Kees Bik (vocals, Mellotron)
Ronald Brautigam (guitar and vocals)
Michel van Wassem (keyboards and vocals)
Albert de Keijzer (bass and Moog-pedals)
Tom van der Meulen (drums and percussion)

The Plackband were local heroes, but gradually they became more and more known and the Plackband even appeared on the national Dutch radio. Unfortunately musical disputes lead to the demise in 1982. Until then they never got the opportunity to record an album, only a single entitled "Seventy Warriors/Some Party" (from 1978, nowadays a collectors item).

In 2000 the Plackband reunited and released in the original line-up the live-CD "The Lost Tapes", including all their best songs. Two years later the Plackband released the album "After The Battle" and a single entitled "Remember Forever", including the new title track and the two songs from the single "Seventy Warriors".
The sound of the Plackband is a tribute to mid-Genesis, very warm, melodic and with strong vocal harmonies, lush keyboards and powerful guitarwork. In 2004 singer Kees Bik was replaced by Karel Messemaker, who knew Ronald and Michel from the Dutch formation "November", the successor of the Plackband.

In 2009 the Plackband were reincarnated as PBII featuring original members Tom van der Meulen, Ronald Brautigam, and Michel Van Wassem with a debut CD release in 2010.

The London concert of the PHAEDRA FAREWELL TOUR 2014 on 23rd May at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire was the second concert in a row of a long multi-week tour after starting in Paris.
This DVD once again reflects the typical and especially warm welcome of our British TD fans during a Tangerine Dream concert in London - as Edgar often named as "TD's home."
It was the last time for the band performing as a five man/woman band - Iris and Linda still were present.

After that tour TD started the so-called QUANTUM YEARS with three concerts in Australia as a four man/woman band with the new member Ulrich Schnauss.

Enjoy this special concert as a very good mixture of classic and earlier TD tracks, at the same time this DVD is a wonderful memory of one of the last concerts with the mastermind of TD Edgar Froese.
