英PROG誌、 Readers' Poll 2018の結果(BBT関連)


英PROG誌の2018年、Readers' Pollの結果が雑誌で発表されたようで、SNSを通じて結果が少しずつわかってきました。で、BBT関連の話題を取り上げたいと思います。まず、2018年の英PROG誌、Band of the YearにBig Big Trainが選ばれました\(^o^)/。オメデトーございます.゚+.(・∀・)゚+.。これは、2017年のCADOGAN HALLのライブアルバムがリリースされたこともありますが、Night of the Progに初めて出演しすばらしい演奏を見せたことが大きいと思います。
