|Passengers waving goodbye before departing on Concorde's first public flight in 1975.|

Here's your entryway, the most listenable song on Peter Hammill's Nadir's Big Chance, which bridges the gap between artsy fartsy prog rock and what would become sneering punk in another year or so. This is a concept album from Van Der Graaf Generator's songwriter and singer about a disillusioned and neurotic teen named Nadir. There were plenty of Nadirs out there, but they would wind up responding to the instant angst of punk.
