Porcupine Tree

Porcupine Tree

Biography

English group originally formed in the late '80s as a faux late '60s Progressive Rock band, only to actually turn into the real thing. Steven Wilson is the man behind the music (as well as most of the instruments). A bombastic throwback to records by Yes and Marillion, with a pinch of spaced Brit rock (a la the Verve or Radiohead). Intelligent to be sure (with no trace of Tolkien or Roger Dean landscapes), Porcupine Tree bring a new level of music geekdom. Between 1987 and 2010, the band released no less than 10 records, with 2009's The Incident, a concept album about catastrophes, named Album of the Year by several magazines, Eclipse and Classic Rock among them.
