I've written them off as a pop-prog band in the past, and I still believe that they were excellent up until Duke in 1980, but I just picked up The Video Show on DVD and I must say that I'm impressed with their obvious love for visuals. 'Land Of Confusion', especially freaks me out.

However, nothing beats The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway in terms of weird rock operas (it's one of my favorites, after Quadrophenia). They really are a great band, and before they fell into the drudgery of 80s pop (say, that reminds me of another band.......), they were really excellent. And Phil Collins, the so-called nicest guy in rock, is a pretty decent drummer, too.

That would be awesome!!!!

Gabriel's Genesis was much more creative, not just a bunch of bubble gum songs that play nice on US radio.

Would be really nice to see Gabriel / banks / Rutherford / Hackett / Collins line up! Especially after Collins said that he'd probably just sit behind the drum kit! I may not like him very much- but he IS a kick ass drummer!!!

1st December 2005

In the light of current speculation about their activities, the members of the Genesis have issued the following statement through Tony Smith Personal Management:

"There are no decisions by Genesis to perform anywhere whatsoever at this time. This situation will not alter in the next twelve months."

Have you ever heard A Trick Of The Tail and Wind & Wuthering? Those are the two post-Gabriel Genesis albums before they went pop. Give them a try!

Of course I have those, as well as "And Then There Were Three".

They're pretty good, but I think they "progressively" got worse with each album. It was cool to hear Bruford on Seconds Out, though.

By then it was Radio Pop...
Duke
3 Sides
Abacab
Genesis

And then it became Radio Poop!

A Trick Of The Tail is one of my favourite albums. I love Ripples, a beautiful song.

I just discovered that they used to rehearse in a studio not far from me back in the 70's -80's Ironically called The Farmyard, *Note not The Farm where they record in Surrey, but a large studio complex in Buckinghamshire.

I found some great old shots on the net a few days ago when looking for a local studio.
