Esoteric Antenna presented “Quiet Life”, Fish on Friday’s stunning fourth album. FoF’s line up has been stable since their second album “Airborne” featuring UK’s Bass virtuoso Nick Beggs, Californian guitarist Marty Townsend, Belgian Keyboard player-guitarist-vocalist and producer Frank Van Bogaert, keyboard player William Beckers and drummer Marcus Weymaere. The band has had an ever growing following since their 2010 debut album, delivering Prog with a poppy edge, of a quality rarely found these days.
It’s the combination of top notch song writing and awesome musicianship that make FoF stand out of the crowd. They even attracted Alan Parsons attention, who invited them to work with him at Abbey Road studio’s. Alan produced one song on which he is also guest starring as backing vocalist. Among other guest stars are Theo Travis (Soft machine, Steven Wilson), John Mitchell (Arena, Kino, Lonely robot) and Lula Beggs , Nick Beggs’ daughter. Lula, who was chosen best independant female vocalist 2016 in the UK, just shines in two beautiful duets with Frank, the title track Quiet Life and Sweet Love. The album features 10 beautifully crafted Proggy songs of the highest production quality.
