  • Andrew Halley

  • Basil Francis

    Despite being TPA’s youngest member, Basil is ironically more fond of the old stuff and has a hankering for reissues and boxsets...

  • Dave Cookson


  • Geoff Ford

    After 43 years in engineering in Derbyshire I left, in 2016, to pursue my interest in writing and photography full time. My other passion is music and it has been a privilege to be able to interview the stars of the industry, many of whom have been heroes of mine for many years...


  • Graham Thomas

    Walking, gardening, real ale, live music. Music is the best.


  • James R. Turner


  • Jez Rowden

    A founding member of The Progressive Aspect (set up in 2013), Jez is the editor of TPA's Review sections. He has been writing reviews since 2006, initially for DPRP, and continues to wax lyrical (ish) about albums and concerts here at TPA.

  • Roger Trenwith
