Yesterday’s Mary song was from Robert Fripp so i thought I’d carry him over to the Two for Tuesday. And like yesterday I included two versions of the same song, today I’m doing the same.

A lot of prog rock fans think Mr Fripp is not very nice to his fans but I can’t agree with that. A long time ago I went to see Mr Fripp give a lecture on his music and electronics. I wanted to get a good seat so I showed up at the venue early. There were three of us sitting by the main door. One guy was playing Fripp’s cd Exposure out loud and we were all listening. The front door opened and out walked Robert Fripp with his guitar. He knelt down and starting playing along with the recording. Needless to say, the three of us were speechless. After the song ended, he got up and went back through the door. Of course we were all excited about what happened. I think at that point it was sealed that Robert Fripp was my musical god.

Granted this was only one interaction with him, and maybe he can be rude to his fans, it’s just a part of him that I have never experienced.

Two songs that are on Exposure also appear on two Peter Gabriel cds. I’ve included the Gabriel version of Exposure as well as the Fripp and Gabriel versions of Here Comes the Flood. Enjoy!

Because Mary Monday this week had two songs, I thought this week’s two for Tuesday should be a two + two Tuesday. So you get four songs from Dethklok. And just having the songs doesn’t do them justice, here they are in their full bloody glory:

This week’s two for Tuesday is from Porcupine Tree. They tend to fall into the psych/prog rock category but the last several years they’ve opted for a harder sound, I guess you could call it progressive metal. Enjoy!

This week’s two for Tuesday is from Ministry. Ministry started out as an electronic pop band but as time went on they acquired a more industrial, harder sound. Listen to Stigmata in comparison to Everyday is Halloween.

And just for fun, enjoy this clip of Monty Python’s Ministry of Silly Walks.

This week’s Two for Tuesday is from Concrete Blonde. I read that they are going on tour this year – I had no idea they were back together. Guess I’ll need to be on the lookout for new music from them.
