Although, well known Australian Progressive Rock group Unitopia have decided to call it a day, the musical spirit still lives on in the
newly formed United Progressive Fraternity. A phoenix from the ashes, UPF are a tour de force with ex-Unitopia members Matt Williams
on guitar, Dave Hopgood on drums, Tim Irrgang on percussion and the ever magical voice of Mark ‘Truey’ Trueack, whose vision this juggernaut is.
Added to this, Mark has managed to corral some progressive rock heavyweights in the form of keyboard player, guitarist, vocalist and song-writer,
friend Guy Manning (Manning, The Tangent) Daniel Mash will play bass guitar on several tracks and will be a part of the touring party,joining Daniel
is sax-keyboardist Marek Arnold,, wind player Ian Ritchie (renowned for his work with Roger Waters).will guest on “Fall in love with the World” as
will Jon Barrett who plays bass on the same song.
On 31 March 2014, UPF formally announced their existence with the video release of “The Water”, from the debut album ‘Fall in Love with the
World’ (due for release in November 2014) and which includes a collaboration with ex- Yes front man Jon Anderson and input from former Genesis
guitarist, Steve Hackett.Steve Unruh will also appear as a special guest on the album, playing the violin and flute.
The context of the songs is largely unchanged from the Unitopia days; thought provoking and meaningful lyrics with an emphasis on the human condition,
the state of the environment and how we as the human race arrived at where we are today. All sung with feeling and passion – a hallmark of all that
is best in progressive music, but the music itself has taken on an edgier, grittier sound than that of Unitopia, which makes it quite
“The Water” opens and ends with the sound of thunder and rain which leads into exquisitely middle- eastern flavours interspersing with a punchy
orchestral chorus and featuring the unmistakable dulcet tones of Jon Anderson. The song progresses into a dramatic sequence with some heavy guitar
riffs supplied by Matt.
The production is flawless, Mark’s voice is as impressive as ever, and the talent that these musicians combined possess is clearly apparent. “The
Water” is a reminder of how we can take this precious fluid for granted; how it is getting harder to get (especially in Australia, where droughts
are more frequent and prolonged with bushfires more violent and deadly with each passing summer) and yet, we still treat it with thoughtlessness
instead of conservation.
“Water’ brings the message home loud and strong!
The band will be touring the UK and Europe in the autumn and have already secured a place at the prestigious Summers End Festival as the Special Guest
slot on Saturday night.
