Yesterday we received a promo album for the band Sonic Universe, and it mentioned Mike Portnoy as part of Porcupine Tree, did I miss that collaboration or the press release is way off?



I get your question is more egregious, but I just laugh at how some people write.  It's as if the words don't actually have a real meaning .  "Diverse talents such as Mike Portnoy and AJ Pero".  "Diverse" means "very different", and "showing a great deal of variety".   There's a LOT of overlap with Portnoy and Pero.  Maybe "Pero" and "ALLEN" are diverse, maybe a different word than "diverse".   And is Adrenaline Mob really "mighty"?   That sounds, well, mutherfuckin' pyschosane to me.

The press release is wrong. MP's never had anything to do with PT.

It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

Who is Joe Payne? Also, I hear bass guitar, but there’s no bassist onstage.

Who is Joe Payne?

Joe Payne, from That Joe Payne.

Quote
Progressive-music vocalist, That Joe Payne, is recognised for his involvement with a variety of projects, from solo releases to collaborations with artists such as The Enid, John Holden, Zio, and Taï Phong.

Based in Northampton, England, and remembered by audiences for boasting an impressive five-octave range and flamboyant showmanship, his voice has featured on no less than sixteen album releases since his career began in 2011.

Personal achievements include being voted Best Male Vocalist two years running by the readers of Prog Magazine, and three Progressive Music Award nominations for his work with The Enid.

As a solo artist, Joe has regularly supported other known artists throughout the prog-scene, including Franck Carducci and Ms Amy Birks, having also performed at the 2019 Marillion Weekend in The Netherlands.

That's That Joe Payne.

many years ago there was a rumor that MP might join with SW and MA for what became Storm Corrosion but i don't think they ever actually recorded together

They didn't, and if memory serves that was a concept that was largely promoted by MP, not SW or MA.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I was planning on picking this up because of Corey Glover and later found out Mike Orlando is on it.  I think AI wrote that press release.
