Pomp Rock

OK. I admit it. I was alive and into rock music during the glory days of pomp rock, but I missed the whole thing. I was a loser into mainstream rock, pop music, and NWOBHM at the time.

Is there any encyclopedia of pomp rock that I could purchase or any web site out there that covers the entire genre - including the truly obscure and self-released stuff? I'm just insanely curious. I always liked the pompier stuff that made its way into the mainstream, and lately I've been buying up some of the bigger name reissued stuff. I'm familiar with the stutterzine site and heart of the rock, but I'm looking for some kind of exhaustive, everything you'd ever want to know about every damn pomp rock band in history.

Is Stephen, the unashamed king of all pomp and hater of all modern AOR, still reading this board or has he moved on to more pristine and pompier pastures?

Where, oh where, do pomp freaks hang out on the net? Or have they all died from suffocation resulting from their synthetic shirts getting tangled up into their monster afros?

If you are a pomp fan but not a pomp master please respond with a list of every pomp band you know anyway. I'll incorporate your list into mine. Thanks.
