You definitely going? I looked at the line up and thought "maaaaaaaaaybe". Also assumed the Echos and Dust guys weren't interested. May go then.

Almost certainly, now the lineup has improved.

It will rule, but you might run into Porklift so weigh up that risk.

It's a lot more poppy and less mathy, I was disappointed.

Read the OP. Is there a summary of why this isn't just called Prog?

Prog has much more to it than just odd time signatures

Oh. Ohhhhhh. How does a typical math rock song compare to Fracture then? There's surely more to the genre than playing merely in odd metres?

yes

did you try listening to some of the tracks in the thread? the difference is pretty self-evident if you just hear it

Math is also (generally) way less indulgent than prog. Shorter songs, fewer parts, more punky.

Yeah I listened to the first few songs in the OP and they sound basically like stripped down King Crimson where Fripp and Belew are trading lines in varying metres. The drumming is pretty basic. Again, not really hearing much as complex as say, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum would have done. And Fracture is far more complex than the song's I listened to in the OP and that's early 1970s prog.

Oh and math solos are vanishingly rare. Math is undoubtedly derivative of prog but I think the influence of punk, reduction of ego and economic factors that meant bands couldn't tour with 30 backup musicians and afford every guitarist a rack of studio grade effects sets it apart.
