British MPs reveal favourite albums in today's Guardian Unlimited...in which they're outed as a pretty righteous crop of politicos. Despite attempts like that sorry list of top conservative rock songs, true rock does not observe party lines. I couldn't help noticing, though, that the sickos who namechecked Tarkus and Atom Heart Mother were on the Labour side of the fence. Comrades in prog, unite.

I doubt a survey of Canadian MPs would produce such an interesting list, although I'm sure the Bloc MPs would do themselves proud.

Atom Heart Mother...Now there's an album you can listen to over and over! I don't think even Pink Floyd can stomach some of their older material.

I actually like Tarkus, lol. It's one of the few ELP albums that I can still stomach. I used to be a huge fan of theirs in my teenage years, but now I can hardly listen to any of their stuff without tasting bile.
