The Giant Hogweed Orchestra – ST (2002)

In case you’re wondering, neither the band’s name nor their music bear any relation to Genesis. This all-instrumental Finnish quintet produces highly guitar-dominated material that has the fluidity of Pink Floyd, the intensity of Porcupine Tree and the obsessive rhythmics of Ozric Tentacles. The band, who uses no synthesizer whatsoever, consists of two electric guitarists (Antti Aalto and Mika Muinonen), a bassist (Turo Sinkkonen), a drummer (Jaako Kakko) and a flute player (Jyri Traskelin). Some of them contribute acoustic guitar and piano whereas additional guests supply bits of mellotron and trumpet on their only album to date.
