It's all prog rock, all the time! Giant art rock nerds Jeremy Parish, James Eldred, and Elliot Long gather together to hash out the art of progressive rock. From its roots in the ’60s to the best modern interpretations of the form, the only rule here is that each episode fills at least one full side of an LP and contains plenty of pretentious solos.
 
The Ugly American Werewolf in London is a weekly podcast about classic rock, hard rock, progressive rock and heavy metal.

Over the last 2 years live music has been absent from our lives and it's been hard. With COVID restrictions lifting, bands are getting back out on the road and we're as psyched as anyone for that. The Wolf held his Sting tickets for over 2 years before finally being able to see him at the London Palladium where he delivered a classic performance. A…
 
Most Americans only know Simple Minds by one song from one movie - Don't Your Forget About Me from The Breakfast Club. But in the UK, Europe and most of the English speaking world, Simple Minds are icons of a generation and writers of dozens of hits.

The original plan here was for Elliot and James to each talk about one album that skirts the line between being prog and not prog, but they both love Supertramp so much that they decided to save the other album for another day. Breakfast In America is a fantastic record! Supertramp are a great band! These are facts that seem to be lost to the annal…

It's safe to say that without keyboards, progressive rock doesn't exist. And while there have been many different types of keyboards, pianos, and synths that have contributed to the prog rock sound, in this episode we cover the three biggest ones: the Hammond organ, the Mellotron, and early Moogs. Sorry ARP fans, maybe next time.…
 
When Roger Waters left Pink Floyd, he assumed that would be the end of the band. However, David Gilmour had other ideas. Teaming up with Nick Mason, The Wall producer Bob Ezrin, once exiled member Rick Wright and a cast of talented musicians, Gilmour revived Pink Floyd with A Momentary Lapse of reason. Derided by critics and Waters, who thwarted th…
 
In 1972, Deep Purple wanted to come off the road and settle into an atmosphere that would allow them to stretch out creatively and better capture their live sound. They headed to Lake Geneva, Switzerland to take residence in a casino right after Frank Zappa played one more gig there. The rest is rock n roll lore captured in the all time classic Smo…
 
Special guest Dr. Sparkle of Chrontendo fame joins us today to discuss artists who either only released one album, or only one album of any regard. While the past few episodes have featured albums that maybe not all of us were keen on, this episode features three stone-cold prog classics: Affinity's self-titled record, First Base by Babe Ruth, and …

Iron Maiden are the greatest heavy metal band on the planet. But in 1992 the wheels were coming off a bit. 1990's No Prayer for the Dying missed the mark as they switched out guitarist Adrian Smith for Jannick Gers.

This is a backer request from "Itsumi Mario," who wanted us to go in-depth on the bonkers 2001 debut by the Mars Volta, De-Loused in the Comatorium. Despite definitely not being in the wheelhouse of neither Jeremy nor Elliot, we find a lot to talk about with this one; the Mars Volta are a lot of things, but "boring" certainly isn't one of them. I'm…

Guns N Roses became the biggest, most dangerous band in the world thanks to raw guitar power & raunchy lyrics.

But once the world heard Welcome to the Jungle, Sweet Child O …
 
Neil Young is a man of conviction who isn't afraid to take on governments & corporations. But he has that platform because of all the amazing music he's made over the decades.
