One of the small changes to Vinyl Connection this year was the cleaning up of the Album Index. (It’s a link at the top of the page.)
When I scrolled down the nigh on 100 albums that have been featured I could not help noticing, obsessive alphabetiser that I am, that there are a couple of gaps; three letters have not appeared in the VC index.
‘Shame!’ you cry, and rightly so.
So let us address this immediately.
Below you will find a poll (if I’ve done it correctly this time. If not, come back tomorrow and it’ll be fixed. Promise.).
To guide your voting, I’ve dashed off a quick descriptor for each of the artists.
ISOTOPE – tightly composed, brilliantly played British progressive rock-jazz-fusion.
INCREDIBLE STRING BAND – strange, beautiful, whimsical, unique English folk rock.
ICECREAM HANDS – Australian power pop with a strong melodic bent.
QUIET SUN – one wonderful album only from this oft overlooked British progressive band.
QUATRO, SUZI – the diminutive bass-playing leather-clad glam rocker.
URIAH HEEP – it’ll be one of the Roger Dean covers for sure. Or maybe the third album.
UNIVERS ZERO – unsettling, complex yet elegant dark progressive music from Belgium.
UB 40 – the classic debut would be VC’s choice.
UK – minor yet well liked prog band.
Vote early, vote often, vote for as many of these I, Q, and U artists as you like and we’ll see what comes forth.
Do vote, even if you are an occasional visitor to Vinyl Connection.
