Professor Tip Top biography
PROFESSOR TIP TOP from Bergen, Norway, is a group playing fine progressive music with a retro sound and lysergic touch, which serves a very psychedelic aura. The songs are partly melodic with vocals, while adding longer instrumental parts of guitar, analogue sequencers, vintage synths and keyboards in between. Inspiration and influences are the 60'/70's versions of Gong, Yes, Pink Floyd, and the Canterbury scene. The band started in 2011, but the members are veterans with a musical background starting in the early 70's.

The lyrics are written by singer Svein Magnar Hansen. As an atheist, he finds the spiritual music in the band a good place to describe a world without divine entities, not without humour and silliness. The music is written by Sam Fossbakk, guitarist and passionate synth nerd, where bassist Stein Høgseth and drummer David Sundby are providing an excellent rhythmic foundation. Mastered at Abbey Road Studios 'Exobiology' is the group's third album. Although the former albums were well reviewed, this third album has developed the band's own identity in a more psychedelic manner.

4 stars Norwegian band PROFESSOR TIP TOP, despite being rather less than visible in the media, is a venture that has been ongoing for quite a few years. They have three studio albums to their name so far, and "Exobiology" is the most recent of those. This production first appeared back in 2014, but was reissued on CD in 2016 by the Norwegian label Apollon Records.

If you fancy and think you might enjoy a band that explores psychedelic progressive rock in a few different varieties, with subtle cosmic flavoring as the recurring trait on an album that in style ranges from folk-oriented escapades through Pink Floydian landscapes and more synth- and keyboards-driven pieces closer to the likes of Tangerine Dream, then this CD by the curiously named band Professor Tip Top is one that should be worth investigating!
