Rob Reed’s Kiama release Slime video

Kiama

Rob Reed’s prog supergroup Kiama have released their video for Slime, taken from their 2016 album Sign Of IV. Watch it above.

Magenta mastermind Reed started the band along with Luke Machin from Maschine, former Frost* man Andy Edwards and ex The Reasoning member Dylan Thompson.

The Slime promo was recorded along with the material they’d previously promoted, but it had remained unreleased until now.

Reed says: “Great to play with such a lineup in Kiama. Here’s a video we did that we didn’t put out. Slime is an epic – I love the ending.

“The few live shows we did had such power. Fingers crossed there’s more to come from the band at some point.”

Speaking of Sign Of IV last year, Reed said: “Me and Andy sat down three years ago and said, ‘What are we going to do with this project?’ It was all about the songs.

“Instead of going for Yes, Genesis and ELP, we wanted Deep Purple, Rainbow, Queen and Gary Moore – bands that dabbled in prog and did longer songs. You can have as much widdle and be as clever as you want, but it’s the song that matters.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
