The Strawberry Bricks Guide to Progressive Rock, 3rd Edition
• Reviews of 510+ albums from 1967 – 1982
• 572 pages
• Fully edited, proofread and fact-checked

ASHEVILLE, NC, USA, March 25, 2020 / — Back in print for 2020! The definitive record guide to the progressive era of rock music, Strawberry Bricks presents a comprehensive discography with reviews of 500+ albums, with band histories, musical synopses, key tracks and critical commentary, all presented in the historical context of a timeline. Beginning in 1967 and continuing through 1982, a generation of musicians took rock music in directions unforeseen as they charted what would become known as progressive rock. From art rock to krautrock, from England to Germany to Italy and all across Europe, Strawberry Bricks offers a candid reappraisal of rock’s most cerebral genre. Also for this edition, Matt Howarth has revisited his original artwork from the first edition of the book.

Says Charles, “The newly written Prologue offers a historical perspective of the pretext to the progressive era, beginning post-WWII, while the Epilogue offers a current perspective on progressive rock since the early 80's. I've also spent a good deal of time fact-checking every detail in the book, including song titles and artist names. Further, this edition has been professionally edited and peer reviewed, all to make this as exacting and rewarding a book as the music it covers. Strawberry Bricks is another narrative on the classic era of progressive rock, one with hopefully a novel and candid outlook on the genre, its albums and the men that made it one of the most interesting chapters in rock's history.”

With 212 more reviews, 210 more pages, completely fact-checked and professionally edited, and with a full index, the third edition is a substantial upgrade to owners of the first edition of the book. For owners of the second edition, Matt Howarth once again revisits his original artwork for Strawberry Bricks. Enjoy the music!

Praise for Strawberry Bricks:

“In Strawberry Bricks Charles Snider gives us a history of progressive rock from 1967 to 1982 through his astute, colourful and insightful entries on a personal selection of over 500 albums – and not always the obvious choices. He acts as an informed and trustworthy guide leading the reader on a fascinating journey through the genre.” – Mike Barnes, A New Day Yesterday: UK Progressive Rock & The 1970s

“Snider’s research is impeccable, his writing style enjoyable and it’s hard to fault the inclusion of any of the hundreds of albums he covers.” – Kev Rowland, The Progressive Underground

“Most impressive! I can see it’s phenomenally well researched. Well done.” – Hugh Banton, Van der Graaf Generator

Comments on previous editions of Strawberry Bricks:

“Only one major book on progressive rock that matters has been published this year, and it's this one: The Strawberry Bricks Guide to Progressive Rock (Revised and Expanded Edition) by Charles Snider. This is a work of great passion and expertise by a true aficionado and historian of the form. It's an exhaustive, comprehensive and engaging overview of the genre. It also offers 500+ reviews of important albums from the "golden era" of this music from 1967 to 1982. This is a valuable addition to the library of every enthusiast of progressive music.” – Anil Prasad, Innerviews

“Charles Snider has an encyclopedic knowledge of progressive rock, and has accrued one of the world’s most formidable record collections. No one is better equipped to write the definitive discography of this rich genre of music.” – Jonathan Schang, District 97

About the Author:
Charles Snider has been collecting records since the early 1970s, amassing one of the most complete archives of progressive rock. “One of my earliest memories of vinyl was The Beatles' 'Paperback Writer' b/w 'Rain.' Musically, my love for British music and everything thereafter starts with The Beatles. My daughters are even named after Beatles’ songs!” Snider's self-professed passion for the music “archaeology” continued over the decades, branching out to many other genres of music. “In the early 90s, Kevin Eden and I curated the WMO label, with the cooperation and support of Wire. The CD was a new format, and we released a lot of hard to find records, as well as unreleased archival material and two very good tribute discs.” Upon moving to Chicago in 2000, he began writing the first edition of The Strawberry Bricks Guide to Progressive Rock. “I've always loved record guides. Certainly, Ira Robbin’s Trouser Press was the prototype, but growing up in the 70s with magazines like Circus, Creem and of course Rolling Stone, I've always enjoyed the passion writers convey about music.” While not listening to prog rock in his man-cave, Snider can be found blogging about personal technology or cheering on the Chicago Blackhawks.

The 3rd Edition of “The Strawberry Bricks Guide to Progressive Rock” will be released on March 27th, 2020. Available directly from, and from (including UK, JP and the EU). Published by via Kindle Direct Publishing, an Amazon company.

From Hell

ASHEVILLE, NC, USA, March 25, 2020 / — Metal horror band FROM HELL returns in 2020 with a new album called RATS & RAVENS. Staying true to the vision that each release is a concept album, Aleister Sinn (the live persona of George Anderson, creator/writer of FROM HELL), releases an album both dark and sinister.

Mid 13th Century…somewhere in eastern Europe
“A father disturbs an evil in the east. A witch comes to steal his son and the children of the village to make them her own. She sacrifices them and reanimates the dead with the blessings from the god of vermin. With rats, she brings them back to life and calls them Lilium.”

RATS & RAVENS will be available worldwide on May 22 in stores and online!

RATS & RAVENS features Aleister Sinn on vocals and guitar, Wes Anderson on drums, Stephen Paul Goodwin on bass and Steve Smyth on lead guitar. As the band rehearsed the songs with Sinn, the richness of what Wes, Steve, and Stephen brought to the material from their varied backgrounds of musical experience added a depth to each song that was later realized in the final recordings.

FROM HELL recorded the album with Greg Wilkinson (High on Fire, Necrot, Autopsy) at Earhammer Studio in Oakland, CA. Sinn says, “When we returned from tour in Russia 2017, we recorded two new songs with Greg and we really liked working with Greg and what we heard. He records bands in a more natural way than many metal engineers and producers and doesn’t rely on sound replacement, but captures great tones to start with and the final mixes of our album came out very natural sounding, heavy and produced, but not over-produced. I personally am pleased.”

Mastering was handled by Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More, Annhilator, Cynic) at MaorAppelbaum Mastering in Los Angeles.

George Anderson (aka Aleister Sinn) has played guitar and vocals for the SF Bay area bands Down Factor and Grandma, a tribute to King Diamond. Wes Anderson has played drums for Les Claypool, Idiot Flesh, Blind Illusion, Young Lions (Noah of Neurosis), SOSA, and Kehoe Nation. Steve Smyth has played guitar for Testament, Nevermore, Dragonlord, Forbidden, Vicious Rumors and One Machine. Stephen Paul Goodwin on bass has played for Vicious Rumors, Diablo Dukes, Journey Unauthorized and has played or recorded with Brad Gillis, Mick Mestec, Eric Peterson, Will Carroll, Phil Bennett, Sticks Hooper, Eric Barnett and Salar Nader.

RATS & RAVENS is the follow up to the first FROM HELL album Ascent From Hell, which is as heavy as it is epic. The album tells a horror story about a corpse that wakes up in Hell only to find he must go back to earth, recover his soul that still lives inside another body and drag it back to Hell. Ascent From Hell featured metal icons Paul Bostaph, Steve Smyth, and Damien Sisson.

Daryl Mosley (photo credit Patty Lindley)

Awarded songwriter and former member of The Farm Hands releases debut single as solo artist. Album coming in May.

I am aware of the mistakes I made in the early years of touring and just how much I thought I knew that was wrong. This is my salute to youth and ignorance and hopefully growing older AND wiser.”

— Daryl Mosley

PLEASANT VIEW, TN, UNITED STATES, March 24, 2020 / — Award-winning hitmaker Daryl Mosley is excited to be releasing his debut single, “A Few Years Ago.” The heartfelt track will serve as Mosley’s lead release from the upcoming solo project, The Secret Of Life, which is available May 22. Released via Pinecastle Records, every song on the long-awaited album was either written or co-written by Mosley. Fans can get a first taste of the project by downloading and streaming “A Few Years Ago” HERE.

Mosley takes fans inside his process of writing the song with this video clip. As the sole writer of “A Few Years Ago,” Daryl takes listeners on a journey which he jokes is his mid-life crisis. The song is a reflection about all of his career and looking back on triumphs and tribulations. Given its full-circle message, the cut serves as the perfect way to kick off The Secret of Life. Music enthusiasts were treated to a first-listen premiere via Bluegrass Today last week.

Known for his prolific storytelling ability, Mosley has quickly captured the hearts of music fans. In addition to penning tracks by artists like Lynn Anderson, Bobby Osborne, Josh Williams, the Booth Brothers and Carolina Blue, the singer has also seen great success performing as a member of the celebrated Bluegrass band New Tradition. This success led him to form The Farm Hands in 2010, where they went on to become one of the most awarded bands in the genre, taking home countless awards.

HIP Video Promo presents: Seattle MC Maribased1 premieres dazzling new "Mystery Girl" music video on Last Day Deaf

Maribased1 – Mystery Girl

Maribased1 – Mariotto 2

Just press play and get lost in this exceptionally, ear-melting hip-hop gem….

SEATTLE, WA, USA, March 24, 2020 / — Check out "Mystery Girl" by Maribased1 on Last Day Deaf

About Maribased1

A lot of rappers love to talk about how they came up all on their own. What they're less excited to spit bars about is that they happened to be a part of a hugely hyped scene, a crew with a platinum artist or two, or were a record exec's 3rd cousin. Inner-city Seattle's Maribased1 is a true lone wolf, running it in a city that isn't exactly known for hip-hop – yet. But if he keeps hustling at the level of "Mystery Girl," pretty soon every other MC north of Oakland is going to be claiming they were kicking it in Rainier Beach way back in the day. His videos for "Bouncin" and "Score’n" racked up solid plays on BET Jams and MTV On-Demand, huge for an independent artist. The BJ&J Entertainment artist packed them in on a tour with controversial LA MC Blueface, while his videos have already blown past a million views. You heard what he said: he's score’n.

About "Mystery Girl"

Maribased1 coined his style "The Northern Flow," because no current catch-alls or buzzwords did his echo-drenched, laid back tracks justice. Try not to look surprised when some young-uns start repping it a year from now. Throughout "Mystery Girl," he kicks his signature zen-like flow atop a piano-and-synth bounce, with bars upon bars full of unexpected phrasings and subtle switch-ups. After "Score’n" and "Bouncin," he takes a break from the braggadocio to tell a seldom-told, uplifting tale of a strong, resilient, independent woman. His awe of her, and his vocal energy, grow with each verse as he rattles off her struggles and triumphs. The track caps off with the loopy groove of a trademark Maribased1 rock guitar lead, leaving us as blown away by this Queen as the man himself.

About the video

Director Rob Fitzgerald set up a dual narrative for "Mystery Girl," a before-and-after Cinderella story that paints a striking picture of the life she left behind, and the one she's since built for herself. Most of the clip is set in her baller high-rise apartment, overlooking downtown Seattle. In these scenes, all Mystery Girl's got to do to let you know who's on top is be herself, lounging with a glass of wine in hand, against the night sky. But when her mind wanders, she relives the not-so-good old days. Now in the harsh light of day, she's arguing with a boyfriend – played by Mista Benjamin, Seattle hip-hop staple and head of BJ&J Entertainment – who's clearly beneath her, staring into the mirror asking herself some hard questions, and finally walking out for good. It's history she's never going to repeat. Maribased1 ends his own screen time, and the video, with a nice visual callback to a classic about another mysterious woman, by the name of Billie Jean.

KSI to Release New Single, “Poppin” Featuring Lil Pump, Smokepurpp on March 27th

Track now available for pre-order

LOS ANGELES, CA, US, March 23, 2020 / — Fresh off the smash success of his first two singles, “Down Like That” and “Wake Up Call” (which have collectively amassed over 200 million streams globally), KSI is back with his third single, “Poppin” featuring Lil Pump and Smokepurpp. The song is set to release across all streaming platforms via RBC/BMG on March 27th.

The British-born entertainer quickly evolved from YouTube sensation (with over 30 million subscribers), to boxing champion (who defeated Logan Paul in a highly-buzzed-about Staples Center match in 2019), to a bonafide, respected artist. In fact, his 2019 debut single, “Down Like That” featuring Rick Ross and Lil Baby, hit #1 on the iTunes chart and peaked at #10 on the UK singles chart, a rare and impressive feat for an emerging artist.

KSI’s latest single “Poppin”, which is now available for pre-order, is set to release in conjunction with a new music video. KSI is also scheduled to perform at high-caliber music festivals around the world, including Reading and Leeds, Parklife, Longitude, Glastonbury, and Weekender Jersey.

Pre-order “Poppin” now:


Olajide William ‘JJ’ Olatunji, known publicly as KSI, is one of YouTube’s biggest stars, a chart-topping music artist, an actor, and a professional boxer with a combined social media reach of over 40 MILLION. KSI’s 2 YouTube channels have amassed over 30 Million subscribers and over 6 BILLION views on YouTube alone. He also possesses the third most-followed music channel in the UK behind Ed Sheeran and One Direction. Variety named KSI as the top influencer amongst US Teens, outranking household names like Taylor Swift, Johnny Depp, and crushing traditional TV/film and music stars. KSI has been featured in Forbes, Billboard, Esquire, The Hollywood Reporter, E! News, ESPN, Mirror, The Sun, and many more. KSI competed in his first white-collar boxing match in February 2018 against fellow YouTube influencer Joe Weller. KSI won the bout and was awarded the YouTube Boxing Championship Belt. On YouTube, the fight drew over 1.6 million live viewers, 21 million views within a day, and over 25 million over the next several days, making it the biggest white-collar boxing fight in history.

Coming March 27 as Song Two in WD-HAN’s 2020 Spring Quartet, Shiver continues to lay the foundation for building inner strength.

WD-HAN have captured the ‘fun’ of rock n’ roll, combined it with a passion for the blues and the result is a song that the reader should play very loudly, and multiple times over.”

— Marnie Burt

TAMPA BAY, FL, UNITED STATES, March 23, 2020 / — Coming March 27 as Song Two in WD-HAN’s 2020 Spring Quartet, "Shiver" continues to lay the foundation for building inner strength.

In this challenging month, when the world is balanced between intimacy and distance, "Shiver" brings you another lesson in the book of people: Some people scratch fingernails on the blackboard of your soul. WD-HAN takes a haunting, spooky look at those who defy all understanding, and shrugs them off as irrelevant. Those who would weaken you mean nothing.

This amazing song takes all the sting out of betrayal, bringing you relief and new life. It uses specific musical techniques to accomplish this, not the least of which is Cal Henry’s guitar interlude from about 2:30 to 2:50. Those twenty seconds are worth the price of admission all by themself.

Timely and timeless, "Shiver" relieves the tensions others try to lay on you, allowing you to face whatever comes.

"With the high-octane ingenuity WD-HAN pours into their tracks, they’re far from a dusty revival band. Their sound is tensile, dynamic, and they are more than efficacious when it comes to sharing that infectious Jim Jones-style furore through their records." – Amelia Vandergast, A&R Factory Blog
