If you haven't heard the Nili Brosh version of Alien Hip Hop, you're missing out on one of Virgil's most amazing performances. He re-wrote parts of it to include an uncanny time bender, which is also featured in this rough sound check video of his latest touring trio

Why did Virgil change band? He had a really combo.
OTV Serious Young Insects imo proves to be way ahead of it's
time with unequaled production value. That LP ruined me...
everything I listen to first compares to that record!
I call it the 'Physical Graffiti' of prog music.

André has been a member of his band for a few years, and he's played with Braguinha on a number of occasions as well over the past 3-4 years.
I think it's great to give such a variety of talents the possibility to shine in this challenging musical setting.

AND, I totally agree, Serious Young Insects is the best ever.

Used Virgil's madness for an old dog video.

^ Dog Boots was never a On The Virg track. It's a Planet X track (from 'Universe') :)
