Greetings from Cornwall UK!

https://athousandyearsoflight.bandcamp.com/releases

Thousand Years of Light (TYOL) are an English band formed in 2015 by Simon Trundle, Nick Perry, Tim Chapple and former guitarist John Weathered Warner.

TYOL’s early 2015 sessions were unashamedly reflective of Hawkwind, using space rock, prog and elements of psychedelia. After John’s departure in February 2017, TYOL began to rework their material with current guitarist Si Spring.

Si has inspired TYOL to develop a powerful, retro, prog rock sound with the use of increasingly atmospheric and dramatic arrangements, richer melodies and dynamically combining grinding, powerful guitars with long, drifting lead breaks. Passages of truly astounding prog offers the platform to the strong, haunting voice of Perry to deliver his epic and sometimes grandiose lyrics that are in no way eclipsed by the band’s bizarre stage names including Baron Von T, Mirrorhead, Didier Pulsar and Pan Zooot.

Thousand Years of Light remain contemporary despite their influences and perhaps could best be described as, 21st century prog!

I listened to this as soon as you posted & gave it the old 'Thumbs Up' !
Only one thing I wasn't keen on was the vocals. Nice lengthy intro & then, uhoh the droning male vocal.
I appreciate that you may be miffed by the unasked for critique; It's just that the musicianship is so good; It doesn't need to be ruined by the vocals. Your sound is crying out for some, well think Gilli Smyth, RIP & you're there.
A little suprisiing you don't sing in Cornish either. It is a Big Sound & would be great to catch you at a festival sometime. Thank You.

Not miffed at all! - thanks for listening and taking the time to comment.

A definite nod to Here & Now in there as well. Gets my approval.

I know the vocal style can be a "Marmite" scenario, maybe not going to work for everyone - We've had it compared to John Lydon meets Scott Walker :), which is inevitably going to polarise opinion a little.
The track was recorded live in a rehearsal room, and Zooot the drummer is also the vocalist - quite a tall order!
It was recorded live on a small ZOOM R8 recorder, using the internal microphones - recording like this can always be a hit or miss affair, as it's all about where to place the recorder.
The band is a real mix of influences - Old Prog / Kraut Rock / Space Rock / Punk / Post Punk / Psychedelia - the list goes on - I personally cut my teeth as a punk musician back in '76, so I hope some of the punk attitude has survived. Zooot will love the Here and Now comparison, as the band was a huge influence on him.

Here's some live stuff taken from the PA mixing desk, this was recorded by Brendan of Cornish Underground.
https://youtu.be/K38L3fdLbvE

Musically I think we've moved up a gear from this, as Si (Mirrorhead) has since joined us on lead guitar - he's great at arrangement and has brought lots of ideas to put in the mix.
He even looks more like a Rock Star than the rest of us...

to you, none

To me girlfriend in New York

I'm sure I would have caught her checking him out, sounds like she's dreaming of a facelift cause "she really ain't that young" :)

Please forgive lightbulbs and Sue if they are offensive

She said her huge boobies remain intact and I think putting here in your thread caused me to break down and check in on her. I am so grateful. Success.
