As the subject of this week's In Focus, presenter Dave Hewitt has chosen the ptogressive rock band High Tide. Formed in 1969, the line-up was Tony Hill (guitar and vocals), Simon House (violin and keyboards), Peter Pavli (bass guitar) and Roger Hadden (drums).

The first album, Sea Shanties, was released in October 1969 and produced by Denny Gerard from the duo Warm Sounds. The band had played on his solo album Sinister Morning and he returned the favour by producing their first album.

Popular music magazine Melody Maker gave the new album a bad review, but the underground press was more supportive and Liberty Records was encouraged enough to release a second album, High Tide, which came out a year later. It contained only three tracks and was perhaps not as well regarded as its predecessor.

A third album was being recorded in 1970 when drummer Roger Hadden had a mental breakdown and was hospitalised. The band broke up and the album was never finished.

There were various attempts to put the band back together in later years, and albums of rehersal recordings were released, but High Tide's career was effectively over.

Dave Hewitt will mull over the band's history and play some music from those two albums in High Tide - In Focus on Phoenix Radio at 8pm on Saturday.

Once again, Saturday evening is when Phoenix Radio turns to its dark side. DJ Cruel Britannia presents Fadeout - an hour of the best in goth, darkwave, industrial and alternative. It's a good introduction for those listeners just getting to grips with the genre and an unashamed wallow in favourite tracks for the more dedicated.

So pull on your leather and join Cruel Britannia on Fadeout every Saturday at 7pm, as usual on Phoenix Radio.

Paul Baker will foray into the world of Prog Rock on Sunday. As usual on Soundscapes, Paul will review the latest releases, talk about and to the major artists in the genre, and perhaps even get out one of his infamous 'long tracks'.

To find out what's happening on the Prog scene, be sure to tune in to Phoenix Radio from 3pm every Sunday for Soundscapes with Paul Baker.

Wednesday night favourite Ian has a wide range of musical tastes. From post-rock to post-metal, post-punk to post-hardcore. That's why he hosts (POST) - a weekly look at everything that no-one else plays.

So whether you like Cult of Luna, Isis, Pelican, Mono, Sigur Ros, This Will Destroy You, Porcupine Tree or a host of other 'cult' bands, listen in to Ian's favourites on (POST), this and every Wednesday at 7pm on your favourite station - Phoenix Radio.
