Prog Primer: Intro To IQ (Featuring Todd Evans), Progstock preview

Have you ever wanted to get into a band, but you feel intimidated by their discographies? Prog Primer was created to help you, the listener, get a sense of where to start.

On the third episode of Prog Primer, I talk to Todd Evans about his favorite band ever, British progressive rock band IQ. With 40 years of history, several lineups, and 13 studio albums, IQ is one of the most respected bands in the genre. Todd talks us through each album, gives us some of his favorite songs, talks about lineup changes and helps us neophytes know where to start with this amazing band.

Below is an IQ playlist that spans their entire career, with a song per studio album, curated by Todd Evans.

Also, as we mentioned, ProgStock’s Virtual Series resumes on October 3rd, as well as October 17. And don’t miss the incredible lineup at the Virtual Progstock Festival 2020. To buy tickets and read about the bands, visit their website at
