The only band I've ever found that I like more than PT are Pink Floyd. Other favs include Bowie, Radiohead, Faithless, and NIN.
Give me a shout if these are some of your favs too so I can add you on here. I'm looking for as much inspiration as I can get right now for my own psychedelicy, proggy songwriting!
A couple of days ago that idiot Wilson answered a question about future Porcupine Tree plans with these words: "You'd be waiting for a long time [for a live performance]. That band [Porcupine Tree] doesn't exist anymore." What an idiot. Anyway, his solo albums sell too good, otherwise he would have released another Tree album in the last 7 years since "The Incident"...
If you listen to Porcupine Tree, you can hear how cool and sick ideas he has. Especially with the production. (c) Mikael Åkerfeldt. btw I really want Opeth cover "Arriving somewhere but not here". Make it!
I would never rule out a reunion Porcupine Tree album. But something like that would be 5 years out. SW is enjoying a freedom to express himself without the restrictions of the "sound" of a particular band.
