Released: Jan 1975
Label: Virgin Catalogue
Canterbury scene guitarist and member of prog weirdo band Gong (he left shortly after this), Steve Hillage released this first solo album in 1975. With his high-register voice, precise playing and super-saturated sound, Fish Rising often sounds like Geddy Lee fronting Mahavishnu Orchestra. With larger pieces made up of short songlets, jazz touches (think Soft Machine), frequent space-outs and heavily treated guitars, not to mention a strange "fish" theme throughout, Fish Rising is one of those prog records that came straight out of left field and was missed by almost everyone.
