Enigmatic Prog Rocker Nearly Reveals His Secrets on Podcast!
Neik, founder and keyboard wizard of the NY-based free-form prog rock quartet C.i.E. (Cueing in Excelsias) remains a purposely hidden entity on the outer fringes of music. He's defined by the very bands that inspired his journery - Beefheart, Gong, Hawkwind, King Crimson, Yes, et al.
I don't know... I found the guy quite rude, to be honest. Dusty was trying to connect with him, like he does with everyone, but the guy kept throwing wrenches- changing the topic, asking questions himself, and most annoying of all, correcting Dusty about the pronunciation of his name. Guess he thought he was being "avant garde" or something, but it came across badly. It made me not want to give his music a good listen, and I guess he would be fine with that. Well, I wish him well in his little world.
