In The Beginning


Genesis "In The Cage"

My newfound appreciation for prog rock continues to the most obvious next step, Genesis' The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway. Never being a fan of Peter Gabriel nor Phil Collins, I was surprised how much I enjoyed the two of them together. This is Genesis before Collins and that douche from Mike & the Mechanics took the band over and started recorded pop drivel like "Invisible Touch" and "I Can't Dance". I'll let Phil Collins have "Sussudio" though. That is a good song.

Anyway, early Genesis was weird in a fabulous way. Watching this video from Youtube alone got me up to speed as to what they were like. Not everyone's cup of tea, but art rock at it's finest for sure. And I've never seen a cool looking Peter Gabriel before, yet here he is!

i agree completely - early genesis was extremely cool band. as an old punk rocker i think that 1980s phil collins and maybe also foreigner and that guy from the eagles (what's his name) were the evil "anti-punks" but i don't know - there must be some misunderstanding there must be some mistake - never mind.

anyway - by the way you are a LIAR. you used to dig peter gabriel - singing shock the monkey as you played with star wars action figures - of course you were like five at the time so maybe you forgot!!
