Good tune and I'd really like to see these guys live but I'm not in a hurry to buy their albums. Have I mentioned they sound like a cross between Ozric and Camel to my ears? Do they jam live or do they play the tunes exactly like on the albums?
No disrespect to them at all of course, they make the effort to do albums and get up there on stage and follow their dream; I seriously doubt they make much of a profit from their endeavours either, their style appeals to a very particular niche audience.

Yes, Pete Mush wrote on facebook some time ago that this tune they`re recording is going to be a part of the tribute. Nice tune, but nothing spectacular to my ears.
They came to play four gigs in Poland last year (still makes me wonder who made this happen). I went to Cracow to see their performance that was in the studio of Radio Cracow for approximately 80 people. Too bad the place sucked, it was hard to breathe and there were only seats, no standing places. Average age was about 40 so people didn`t want to stand up...
Anyway, they played the exact tunes, no improvisation, no jams, pretty much no difference from studio recordings. You can hear that on their live albums, I think they`ve released two of them so far.

it is quite possible to sound very similar to the ozrics whilst still completely missing the point - whilst i wouldn't say quantum fantay have completely missed the point i would say the sonic depth of eds work is much greater (might only be able to notice on super-close listening but it's vital)
- no no this isn't an attempt to copy the Ozrics -> Why Try, Naughty ?! But we do hope to use or elaborate upon some of the ideas they have given to us in our own way. www.reverbnation.com/thesonicsoupjamband (MK Jam-Band Chart #2 since Summer 2011)
