With Phil Collins more or less retired and Peter Gabriel more likely to join UKIP than reform Genesis is seem the only way a long term Genesis fan is going to get to hear their favourite songs is at home, in the car or if you happen upon any of the tribute acts like The Musical Box, Trespass, Turn It On Again or Regenesis, that is until Steve Hackett decided to throw his hat into the ring. Having dusted off his old recordings and given them a twentieth century buff up on Watcher of the Skies: Genesis Revisited in 1996 and more recently on Genesis Revisited II (2012) he then decided to take this classic material onto the road, which proved a massive success and resulted in not only the Genesis Revisited: Live At Hammersmith boxset but an extended tour which is packing venues all over the world and looks set to continue well into next year...
Shmade 's Appay

Brain May This week we 'ave been mostly listening to Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel’s Birmingham - Live With Orchestra & Choir, the reason being it’s a live recording (on CD and DVD) of both The Human Menagerie and The Psychomodo played in their entirety with, yup you’ve guessed it, an Orchestra & Choir, and it's bloody great. Never let anyone tell you that Roxy Music were the only good thing to come out of glam rock, just check this '84 performance of 'Judy Teen' from London's Camden Palace
Brown In The Pink

Arthur Brown The rather splendid but utterly bonkers Arthur Brown returns this month with a new album (his first in 10 years), entitled Zim Zam Zim the album finds the god of hellfire in remarkably fine voice - especially given that he has been entitled to apply for a bus pass for a good many years now (he’s 73 fact fans) and not only are his old vocal chords in fine fettle he has also appears to have rediscovered his muse with a whole host of willfully wayward clanking tunes (see the album review here) and check out the video for 'Unknown' here...
Busy Boy

Jonathan Boulet An interesting new Aussie artists popped up on our radar recently, Jonathan Boulet is ostensibly a folk-rocker who wrote, recorded, produced and played almost every instrument on his debut self-titled album but also finds time to be a member of Sydney indie rockers Parades (playing drums), hardcore outfit Snakeface (playing bass) and, as if that wasn’t enough, is also a member of Top People. We just love the video for this taster from his upcoming album Gubba featuring the duffest motorbike gang ever.
