How is it that artists like Iggy and The Stooges and Saxon can keep rocking and putting younger acts to shame after decades? Lots of bands burn out long before then, but the ones that last sure know how to make classic music.Elsewhere we have quite a prog-inspired list this week. The Pinapple Thief are back with a pretty accessible entry (for a prog track, anyway) and we're introducing Humanfly who are streaming their new album in its entirety down at the bottom. Humanfly are part of the exciting Leeds music scene, which is a pocket of England which goes completely underrated in mainstream press - look out for it.Let us know what you like in the comments, and if you have tips of your own be sure to share them - they might make it into a future list.
Iggy And The Stooges "Burn"
The Stooges were punk before punk was even invented, and this song proves they're still flying the garage rock flag with pride and integrity.
These fellas have released 20 albums, so they know what proper metal is all about. Notice at 1m 45s how the guitarist literally kicks dust in the face of lesser bands.
The Pineapple Theif "Build A World"
Catchy prog-rock from an EP of the same name, due on March 25.
Bring Me The Horizon "Antivist"
They might have parted ways with guitarist Jona Weinhofen, but the band will be back in force on their fourth album "Sempiternal" on April 2.
Humanfly "Awesome Science"
Leeds in England has one of the coolest underground rock scenes in the western world, and Humanfly are on the frontline with their label Brew Records. Try their entire new prog-infused album here.
