We announce the winner of the vinyl Topographic Drama competition and review the new Virgil and Steve Howe album, Nexus. It’s a lovely collection. There’s also time for a 2 pence about ARW headlining a festival in June 2018!
- The pieces on the album were piano demos – how have they been finished off?
- Does the album work as a whole?
- Is it limited by being an instrumental record?
Listen to the episode then let us know what you think!

I was pleased to hear you liked Nexus as well. When I first listened and really liked it, I was afraid I was too soft to criticize, but now we agree this is just good music!
Seems Steve has some energy to write, and so does Geoff (witness Skyscraper Souls)and, of course the ever prolific Billy is always working. I hope they collaborate on a new album for our favorite band.
This is not the place to discuss it, but any patrons need to read the new Patreon terms which basically mean we cheapskate backers will be charged another third in order for the site to receive another 15% max. I have emailed Kevin and suggested alternatives which might work for existing patrons (ie annual single pledges), but this move by Patreon is only likely to discourage new patrons.
As Kevin has informed me, following numerous complaints, Patreon have now decided not to make these changes to their fee structure. We wait to see what changes they decide upon.
