Thank God for computers and the Internet -- you know, those things we
slaves to Bill Gates curse all the time? Without all that comprehensive
information that I remembered to turn to only at the last minute, you,
the knowledgeable reader, would have most likely been distracted from
the immense praise I'm going to pile on this brilliant band Porcupine
Tree and their honkin' new album, Deadwing, by the silly little detail
that they are not, as I've been telling everyone, this great new
British group with an ass-kickin' debut. Maybe I carried that thought
because I had never heard or read word one about them. Nor had any of
my tuned-in music buddies. How could anyone this good be completely
unknown unless they're new?
Turns out Porcupine Tree has been releasing albums since 1989 …
NINETEEN-EIGHTY-NINE!! 13 albums, 10 EPs, 13 limited editions, 13
promotionals and they’re included on 11 compilations.
