NICK BARRETT FRONTMAN FOR BRITISH PROG ROCK GROUP ‘PENDRAGON’ CHATS ABOUT LATEST RELEASE ‘NORTH STAR’

ON INTERVIEWING THE LEGENDS WITH RAY SHASHO!

 

Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of Interviewing the Legends I’m your host Ray Shasho.

Pendragon are an English neo-progressive rock band established in 1978 in Stroud, Glouce-ster-sher, England, as Zeus Pendragon by guitarist and vocalist Nick Barrett. The word Zeus was dropped before the band started recording, as the members decided it was too long to look good on a T-shirt. There were a few personnel changes in the early days, but since 1986 the lineup has remained relatively stable (with only the drummer changing several times since then). The band were active in the progressive rock revival spearheaded by the likes of Marillion, Pallas, Solstice and Twelfth Night in the early 1980s and often appeared as support acts to Marillion and other major prog bands, both on tours and at the Marquee venue which hosted many regular prog evenings.

In September 2019 the band released a 40th Anniversary boxed set containing five compact discs. The first three represent a complete live concert recording made in London during 2018. The remaining two discs are re-mixed and remastered versions of the albums The World and Men Who Climb Mountains. In February 2020, a new album called Love Over Fear was released. Most recently this year an EP entitled North Star was released.
