Iona put out a couple of excellent albums like 'Book of Kells', sort of prog-rock version of Clannad.

ICON was John Wetton and Geoff Downes doing a more straightforward approach than the arena-rock of Asia.





A Prog Masterman would simply know these things.

No. A progmasterman does not study SHIT.

I do not care for your tone of flippant dismissal of a member of a SELECT CIRCLE.

a PROGMASTERMAN is CORRECT to be blissfully unawares of shoite loike this IONA and ICON.
It is my badge of honour to be unawares of such detritus.

Qango was Carl Palmer and John Wetton (again) playing some hard-rocking versions of their previous bands works. Formed after an abortive attempt to reform Asia in the early 90's.

Quidam, Polish prog, style Camel/Renaissance.

Bring it on, Missy.

I cheated and checked progarchives. Never heard of any of them! I was thinking of XYZ, the band Chris Squire former with Alan White and Jimmy Page. I rather suspect that wasn't prog though.
