Tiger Moth Tales
at Local Authority, Eldon Street, Sheffield, S1 4JU
The Spirit of Progressive Rock are pleased to announce that on 5th of November we will play host to Magenta supported by Tiger Moth Tales.
Magenta are a Welsh progressive rock band formed in 1999 by Robert Reed. Whilst writing Magenta’s debut release, “Revolutions” Reed states “Current prog bands are always scared and shy about admitting the influences of the great prog bands of the 70’s, but I wanted to celebrate those influences”
Since then they have released many more studio albums including 2004 release,Seven, which was voted into Classic Rock Presents Prog’s top 50 albums of all time.
In April 2015, Rob Reed and Christina Booth collaborated with Big Big Train’s David Longdon and Nick D’Virgilio, Steven Wilson band’s Nick Beggs and Steve Hackett (ex Genesis) on a new version of Hackett’s 1979 instrumental track “Spectral Mornings”, with new lyrics written by David Longdon, in support of the Parkinson’s Society UK.
Alongside Magenta, Robert Reed has released three Sanctuary albums, and Kompendium.
Magenta are currently working on an orchestral album which will be released late 2022.
Christina Booth: lead vocals.
Rob Reed: keyboards, backing vocals.
Chris Fry: lead electric guitars, backing vocals.
Dan Nelson: bass.
‘Jiffy’ Griffiths: drums.
Tiger Moth Tales is the brain child of Nottinghamshire based musician and writer Peter Jones.
Apart from his own projects, Jones has been the keyboard player with prog legends Camel since 2016, as well as joining the Francis Dunnery band on the last two It Bites show tours. He has worked in various bands, including Red Bazar, and most recently Cyan.
