Kansas (FAQ) [01 Mar 2009|11:33am]

msblackeyeliner
I have recently come across a unique opportunity to interview a member of the band Kansas! He is currently their drumming apprentice and travels the country with them. He sets up for concerts, plays during the shows and hangs out with them all the time! AND we at mossip are going to take questions from the fans to pass along to him!

If you would like to ask a question or want more information please go HERE!

Point Of No Return Playlist - 05.10.06, Show #51!!

Welcome to the PONR broadcast on DLBN!!

Well, last week's show was "The Perfect Storm" of Internet radio.
The show was rockin', the crowd was diggin' it….then WHOOSH~~ the
mighty Comcast took it all away by cutting off 2/3rds into my show!!
Not to fear my fellow "non-fleevers"....I have finished the show
from the "Point Of No Return" --pun intended. I spiced the live show
with a pre-recorded last third….and even EXTENDED it to about 4
hours!

You'll hear the EPIC live version of "Lamb "Lies Down On Broadway"
by Kevin Gilbert & Giraffe...you'll hear new Polish Prog band
sensation, Sandstone...you'll hear your humble and loveable host
curse the ever-living gods of TCP/IP as their wrath infringes on the
show's "We're Not In Kansas Anymore" segment.

Oh...and I also blew out my Playlist, so each tune will be an Easter
Egg of sorts!
ALMOST FORGOT....don't forget to mark your calendars...Weds May 24th
marks the One Year Anniversary of PONR!!! I'll be joined by Cozywife
on the mic for special segments, roll calls, guests and lots of fun!

Be there - or be....Un-PROG!! ..uh...yeah...

Download or Stream the show! You'll love it!!

Point Of No Return Playlist - 04.26.06, Show #49

Welcome to the PONR broadcast on DLBN!!

Nothing like a great chat crowd – a HUGE chat crowd to make the show
a rousing success! I’ll say it again..I have the best audience in
the known world! The crowd was unruly, uncouth, raucous and ready
to rock. They did not leave unsatisfied!

I played the entire SONG FOR AMERICA album, which elated the die-
hard KANSAS fans and converted those who were new to the release.
Gang, it’s an awesome show, Get the ARCHIVE TO FIND OUT! The link is

During “We’re Not In Kansas Anymore” – Amazing new music from SAGA
and TOOL!! We kept it real with Kevin Gilbert and a debut from
Teddy Geiger. Robin Trower’s “Bridge Of Sighs” was a PERFECT request
from Laurel tonight!

Robby Leaves Kansas [29 Mar 2006|07:19am]

I guess as the years roll on, this was bound to happen. Best wishes for all parties concerned.

-------------------------------------------

Wait Until Tomorrow - Steve Walsh's Newsletter

March 27th 2006

Kansas has had some good years and some not so good years. Projects
that should've sold lots, and some that shouldn't have. But one thing is for
sure. We are deeper than the 3 albums we consistenly draw from. We have
gone through a big change here. And in my mind it has been one of the
most difficult things we've ever had to do. We have parted ways with
our original violinist/singer, Robby. I'd like to say it was pleasant, and
friendly. But I was in such turmoil at the time, I didn't really know
who was my friend, and who wasn't. I really don't want to publish the
details. I just want everyone to know that this change-this metamorphosis will
make us stronger and better because we will survive
it. We care about our legacy and our music, our friends, and yes, it's
the way we make a living, and we don't want that to go away either. So,
please come and see us. We're gonna be fucking great.... Steve Walsh

Hey Wheatheads!

I found this great article about our boys!

Opinions and Theories

Kansas.  Underrated Prog Rock?
By Wilton Said…
   I've been listening to a lot of Kansas lately, especially the
2CD/1DVD box set "Sail On".  It got me thinking that I don't see
Kansas' name crop up that often as one of the great major prog rock
artists.  Usually it's Yes, Genesis, ELP, and sometimes Jethro Tull,
but not Kansas.  While they had some Pop hits throughout their career
such as "Play the Game Tonight", "Hold On" and "Dust in the Wind",
they also had quite a bit of complex prog rock material.  To me, songs
such as "Journey from Mariabronn", "Song for America", "The Devils
Game", "Pinnacle", "Miracles Out of Nowhere", "Paradox", and the wacky
"Magnum Opus" all rival anything done by the groups mentioned earlier.
Musically, I find it amazing that a band with at times 5 melodic
instruments (Bass, Guitar, 2xKeys, Violin) could have such intricate
counterpoint arrangements that work.  For me this is best heard on a
song such as "Paradox", especially the instrumental section.
Kansas were also able to give that huge wall of symphonic sound.
Take a listen to the intros of "Lamplight Symphony", "Incomudro",or
"Magnum Opus" and that wall of sound hits you square in the face.  For
me, it rivals what Yes has with their song "Awaken" (the section after
"Shall we now bid farewell farewell").
If odd time signatures are your thing, Kansas also had plenty of
this.  Listening to any of the songs mentioned above should confirm
that they knew their rhythms and how to play them.
As far as individual musicianship is concerned, they might not have
been the prodigy players as Wakeman, Emerson, Howe or Bruford, but
they could still hold their own.  Richard Williams' guitar solo in "On
the Otherside" and "Angels Have Fallen" are as soulful as David
Gilmore.  Kerry Livgren's Key solos in "Magnum Opus" are fantastic.
Drummer Phil Ehart manipulates through the time changes and mood
changes of "The Pinnacle" with ease.  Vocalist Steve Walsh has a clear
distinctive sound that's able to cut through with lyrical clarity.
Bassist Dave Hope is able to play both, the driving solid bottom end,
and the melodic delicate lines which best suit the song.  Lastly, we
have Robby Steinhardt whose violin lines and solos helped make Kansas
unique in the world of rock.  (Much like the way Ian Andersons flute
make Jethro Tull unique).
So there you have it.  My take and opinion of one of the most
under-rated Prog rock bands.  I asked around for other opinions, and
here are some of the answers I got...
Wilton Said... is a singer, songwriter, performer, and editor.
http://www.wiltonsaid.com

Very nice Wilton, I agree 100 per cent!!!!!   Masque, Song, and the
debut are amazing and listen weekly still!!!!   The live album is
really good as well, I love all the albums, some feel they r way to
poppy or whatever to be considered in the prog realm, I disagree
respectfully with that, Kansas was pretty complex stuff for the time
and what was popular, essential stuff, the remasters r wonderful!!!!!
Paul
Pauc - member of the "Progressive Music Society" Yahoo Group.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/progressivemusicsociety

Underrated, perhaps.   Certainly undeserving of some of the negative
comments thrown their way.  Kansas were amazingly talented musicians
and composers and they left us with 3 completely solid complex works,
at least 2 more that were mostly amazing works, and lots of fond
concert memories.   The recent archival release and subsequent
reformation of Proto-Kaw suggests that their progressive roots were
well established before they took the name Kansas.
For my money, Masque is about as good a prog album as you will find
anywhere.   It also has that uniquely "in your face" heaviness
associated with midwestern US rock that I find incredibly appealing.
Other examples would include Kopperfield, Bullangus, Easter Island,
and Ethos.
Their run from the debut up to at least Point of Know Return should
firmly establish that they do belong in the upper echelon of prog.
And we can forgive a "Dust in the Wind" when we can opt instead for
Song for America or Mysteries and Mayhem/The Pinnacle.
We should also take notice of some bands that were influenced by
Kansas and their contributions to the prog world.   Although more
strongly influenced by Gentle Giant, and to a lesser degree King
Crimson, Kansas certainly had a hand in the formation of the Texas
band Prism, who would be later known as Hands - which is certainly one
of the undiscovered masterpieces of American progressive rock.
Shooting Star has some modest success in their early days when they
were the next best thing to Kansas.
Bob
Bob - member of the "Progressive Music Society" Yahoo Group.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/progressivemusicsociety

I would certainly consider Kansas prog, at least in the first Steve
Walsh era.  Prog infused with a slab of old fashioned corn-belt
boogie.  As someone actively involved in trying to play original prog
in the late 70s, Kansas was a source of inspiration along with
Starcastle, Ethos and Fireballet.  The fact that they were on a major
label, and punched through to commercial success kept the carrot of
hope dangled in front of me, and many a wannabe progger like me.  And
even the more overtly commercial hit tunes always had something to
say.  Oh for commercial rock of this caliber today...
Steven
Steven - member of the "Progressive Music Society" Yahoo Group.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/progressivemusicsociety

This has come up in other groups, Said, and it is a very good point.
  Kansas certainly were an excellent band.  I loved their work, but it
was Steve Hackett's first solo album that featured Kansas folks on it
that made me take note of them as a progressive force.  And they
certainly were!
  I can't help but if it was the fact that they had top twenty hits
that accounted for them being ignored by the prog community.  In some
ways, the prog community seems to frown upon the very success they so
desperately struggle for!  The fact is there are some artists that
have achieved success but are not considered 'prog' by the prog
community.  For instance, U2.  Certainly not every bit of music they
ever did would be considered prog, but I can't help but feel that had
'Unforgettable Fire' been released by a major prog band, it would have
been hailed as a work of high accomplishment.  Yet their success seems
to work against them, and to mention them with the higher powers in
prog would be tantamount to sacrilege.
    There are many great new prog bands appearing on the scene these
days.  One of them is Porcupine Tree.  Now, it may be that they are on
the verge of some very successful days ahead of them.  Will we hear
the tire dold refrain of 'they sold out' about them if they do?
The fact is, Kansas were a great band, and deserved all the success
they had, and more!  The fact that they achieved a certain amount of
success should not stand against them as an established prog band.
There's almost a level of hypocrisy in the whole thing; we work hard
to develop success for our
favourite bands, but when they actually achieve that success, we turn
from them.  The truth is, the prog community suffers from a very false
ideal; we seem to feel that the unsuccessful, struggling artist makes
better music than the one who can devote all of their time on their
craft.  For myself, nothing could make me happier than to see the
artists Canprog supports rolling in wealth.  Certainly they deserve
to.  If talent alone were the prime consideration, artists like Steve
Cochrane and Wilton Said... would be among the elite aritsts in the
world.  But they're not, so we have these treasures all to ourselves.
  For now, anyway.  We can only hope the world wakes up to the
incredible music they can make.

Welcome to the PONR broadcast on DLBN!!

We rang in the month of March with a bang! We had an earthquake
here in the Bay Area today, and are expecting a flood tomorrow!
Guess we're not in Kansas anymore – although the conditions are
quite like Kansas! Awesome chat crowd and requests tonight. Heck,
we even heard from Erik Cartman!

During "We're Not In Kansas Anymore", I played a long double-shot
set of Coprofago - an amazing Chilean Prog/Fusion/Death Metal band
with a surprising sound! I think I surprised the crowd with rare
music by Mother Gong and the beautiful sounds of The Wishing Tree.

There were lots of great requests sent this week, so I played as
many as I could. Keep `em comin and I'll play `em during NIKA.

Kansas, Dregs, Proto-Kaw - Prog Radio Show [26 Feb 2006|11:19am]

scozart

The Point Of No Return, with Steve Cozart  ---  Wednesdays 8PM - 11PM Pacific time

Amazing compositions, beautiful violin, dynamic rhythm section, hard-edged guitar and soaring vocals might begin to describe the band Kansas. Since their first album in 1974 to present day, Kansas has produced some of the most original and memorable “prog” music in the genre. You’ll hear sweeping epics, classical opuses, a touch of bluegrass, jazz influences and some hard-driving guitar work during each show. Of course, you’ll hear the famous “Carry On (My Wayward Son)”, “Dust In The Wind” and the namesake for this show, “Point Of Know Return”- but be prepared to experience much more than you’d expect. You’ll get live performances, alternate recordings, unreleased tracks and of course, a ton of music from Kansas-related artists and bands like The Dixie Dregs, Proto-Kaw, Kerry Livgren, Seventh Key, Steve Walsh, Explorer’s Club, Trent Gardner, Magellan, AD, Zappa and many more. You’ll also get hear the “We’re Not In Kansas Anymore” portion of the show, when Steve plays a wildcard set that has nothing at all to do with Kansas. Send in those requests, folks! How will your senses take all this in? Tune in and find out!

About Steve:
As a child growing up in the 70’s, Steve Cozart was witness to the incredible musical styles on the airwaves at the time. The diverse musical forms of British, Pop, Folk, Acid, Blues, Contemporary and early Heavy Metal bands were dominating the charts. Steve was drawn toward the more textured, complex and technically-oriented music, appreciating the skill, flow and imagination it demonstrated. In the mid-seventies, bands like Styx, Rush, Jethro Tull, David Bowie, The Moody Blues and Pink Floyd had his attention, but when he first heard “Lonely Wind” by Kansas, he had to hear more. He’s been a fan ever since, and has this to say about being a DJ on DLBN. “When I was a kid, I would put my speakers up in my window and play records for the kids in the neighborhood. I’d hold contests and take requests to really involve my audience. My show became so popular that it became a regular gig, even attracting some of my friends’ parents to come listen. I love to share the music that I am so passionate about, so broadcasting on the DLBN will be as rewarding for me as I hope it is for my listeners.”

Point Of No Return Playlist - 02.22.06, Show #40

Welcome to the PONR broadcast on the DLBN!!

Big Show #40 was a great time! I have upgraded my studio with new mics, mixer and board so the sound was crisper, according to those who were present. Speaking of those in chat…the room was a buzzin’ with “FOOD PORN”. Apparently that’s the term for describing ones culinary skills, menu and dishes in great detail in the room…while the rest of us drool. Thanks DaveP!

During “We’re Not In Kansas Anymore”, I played a long double-shot set of Karmakanic and the beautiful sounds of Locanda delle Fate, from Italy. If you haven’t heard this great music, be sure to download the archive. It will be up for only this week. There were a ton of requests sent this week, so I played as many as I could. Keep ‘em comin!

SHOW #40 A Milestone!

I'm not sure if icons are allowed to be posted here,but since I whipped up a few,I figured I'd try posting them here for other Kansas fans.There's only three of them,but they're going under the cut anyway.:3 One simply being lyrics while the other is the band itself.

Sample:


No One is me and you...Collapse )

It's amazing how few Kansas pictures you can find.And amazing how unactive this community is...Oh well.Just thought I'd share said icons with you all.
