ARCHIVE - 50 years ago Phil Collins began rehearsals with Genesis, 29 August 1970 - PODCAST & RICORDI

Unforgettable stories and memories, through audio, video, documents and much more.

By D.B.

English English Italiano Italiano

In late August 1970 Genesis began rehearsing with their new drummer: Phil Collins. Here is the story of those summer days. 

Listen to the Podcast (in Italian) - CLICK HERE.

As we have seen, on August 8, 1970 a phone call extended the life of the Genesis, who, after the farewell of Anthony Phillips, already seemed close to the end. READ THE SPECIAL OF HORIZONS RADIO ON THOSE SUMMER DAYS.

"Hello Phil? I'm Peter Gabriel. That of Genesis. The place is yours, if you want it ».

In the previous days Phil Collins has supported an "audition" with Genesis, after replying to their announcement.  

From genesisfan.net

The band was very close to breaking up, as Anthony Phillips left his fellow adventurers and they also decided to replace John Mayhew, the current drummer. 

A few days after the call, Genesis and Phil Collins meet in Tony Stratton-Smith's office at Charisma in Soho. Phil recounts in his autobiography:

"The meeting is fine. I especially like the part where I find out that Genesis have a weekly wage of ten pounds, because it doubles the level of income I'm used to."

 But there is also bad news: Tony, Mike and Peter plan to take a two week vacation. Collins hoped to get started right away and not just out of enthusiasm. He needs money.

And so, as he always reveals in his autobiography, Phil starts painting as a painter for two weeks.

No, I haven't died of Phil Collins yet. Back cover - CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO PURCHASE THE BOOK.

On August 24, Peter, Mike and Tony return from vacation. Rehearsals can begin and therefore Phil's new employment, although the band has yet to honor some dates in the old lineup, such as the legendary Marquee Club.

From genesis-movement.org

Since they all live in the parts of Surrey and Collins in the west suburbs of London, Mike invites him to stay at his home in Farnham. Phil tells:

"It's another great house, albeit with a very warm and easy-going atmosphere. I happily take my leave of London and move to Mike (...) I like to live at Mike's parents' house. At breakfast there are hard-boiled eggs and there is always something that cooks on cheap cooking ".

The evidence for the new Genesis lineup takes place in Maltings, for an agricultural complex in Farnham, in fact. Again the autobiography of Phil:

"The rest of my life begins with the first rehearsals of the new Genesis formation in September 1970, in the environment covered with pigeon guano of Maltings, an old agricultural complex in Farnham. We assemble the equipment and start playing with what I would describe a confused enthusiasm: various friends of Peter, Tony and Mike come to visit us from the private school, I discover new exotic foods such as Marmite and tahina, and often everything is wrapped in the sweet smell of the grass ".

In addition to the various friends of the Charterhouse, who come to see them, hit Phil is lwith constant presence of Richard MacPhail. Remember Phil:

"He had been the lead singer of Anon, one of the pre-Genesis bands at the Charterhouse. He's the road manager and sound engineer, as well as a heavy joint smoker. Perhaps he has no other choice, as he sleeps in Maltings, sharing his bunk with the pigeons and their guano, and supervising the instruments. He is the one who introduces me to the pleasure of listening to smoking headphones. "Déjà Vu" by Crosby, Stills & Nash has just come out and Richard brings the record, prepares a gigantic joint and urges me and Mike to immerse ourselves in the majestic sonic harmonies of Carry On. It's not quite like kicking open the doors of perception, but at least I knock on it gently. "

Maltings is a very comfortable old barn here the new Genesis are comfortable playing, improvising. And here they prepare future concerts with the new lineup. The atmosphere is apparently relaxed, though in its own autobiography, The Living Years, Mike Rutherford underlines the differences between them:

"We and Phil didn't live on the same planet. He always had the carefree kid-next-door attitude: let's go to the bar for a drink, tell a joke, smoke a cigarette or a joint. Life is good. And I think that. one of the reasons why Pete liked him was that Phil didn't have our background, he didn't come from a narrow and limited world like us. Pete was less rigid than me and Tony, much more prone to emotions and feelings; much more curious towards the world in general. "

E Phil reveals that:

"In any case, the customs learned at school are hard to die, and the social hierarchy is soon evident. No wonder: I am the last."

Even if it is not only to "contrast" with the three, because with them there is another guitarist, Mick Barnard. We have seen that after the farewell of Anthony Phillips and then with the arrival of Phil, the Genesis have continued as a quartet, without guitarist, with Tony playing all the guitar parts on an electric piano Hohner filtered with a fuzz box. Then they found Mick, but he is not the right person and the search for a guitarist continues.

One time, scrolling the Melody Maker, find the announcement of Steve Hackett.  

But that's another story.

ARCHIVE - 50 years ago Phil Collins joined Genesis, 8 August 1970 - AUDIO, VIDEO & MEMORIES

Unforgettable stories and memories, through audio, video, documents and much more.

English English Italiano Italiano

On August 8, 1970, a phone call extends the life of the Genesis, who, after the farewell of Anthony Phillips, seem already close to the end. Here is the story of those summer days. 

From genesisfan.net

By DB

The phone rings at 453 on Hanworth Road, Hounslow neighborhood, the western suburb of London. A voice says, "Hello Phil? I'm Peter Gabriel. That of Genesis. The place is yours, if you want it ».

It is August 8, 1970. In the previous days, Phil Collins had an "audition" with Genesis. The band was very close to breaking up and is still in a very unstable equilibrium. The creative symmetry is gone, since Anthony Phillips left his fellow adventurers. Previously, Genesis had two pairs of writers, Mike Rutherford and Ant on one side, Tony Banks and Peter Gabriel on the other. But above all they were friends. Now one of them leaves.

From genesismuseum.com

Because on July 18th at Sussex Hall in Haywards Heath, Anthony Phillips took the stage for the last concert with the group he is the founder of. Watch and listen to the memories of that date in the SPECIAL OF HORIZONS RADIO. 

The stage phobia turned out to be much more than just fear, it's terror. Ant is very thin and appears destroyed, but the band does not have the time to notice what is happening in the soul of his friend. It is a time when things seem to move. They just registered Trespass (will be released in the fall) and I'm on tour in England.

The music that Ant loves so much is becoming the cause of unhappiness. Rutherford is the first to know his intentions. Just before a previous concert, they went away and the revelation arrived like a cold shower. Rutherford knows that his friend is afraid of the stage, but there was no time to deepen the speech and Phillips has no longer mentioned his phobia.

Genesis played in front of 18 people on July 25th at Haywards Heath. The journey home Mike and Peter do it in Gabriel's new car, one Hillman Imp. Together they take the situation into consideration. Anthony seems irreplaceable, the Genesis appear as indivisible, the urge to quit is about to take over.

Yet during that trip something different matures, the idea of ​​being able to do it even without a friend. Must go on.

And so the Genesis take advantage of it to operate a small revolution. With Anthony the umpteenth drummer is also released from the band: John Mayhew.

That's why the three left are grappling with the hearings, that summer of 1970. It is urgent to find a new drummer, but you are also looking for a guitarist, obviously, even if at the moment the parts of Phillips are entrusted to the piano Hohner and fuzzbox by Tony, with Rutherford on guitar and pedal bass. In the post-Ant the Genesis are in fact making several dates in quartet, also important, like this one, at Marquee Club from London:

From genesis-movement.org

The atmosphere is therefore very tense. At stake is survival and it may not be easy to find someone up to expectations.

To the announcement on Melody Maker Phil Collins replies among others.

Phil has just been to Abbey Road to record With gas in the song All Things Must Pass by George Harrison, even if in the credits there is not his name and in the recording his percussions are not noticed at all. LISTEN:

And his current group, Flaming Youth, falters. The album Ark 2 did not give the expected sales results. Collins desperately needs to work.

He buys all the music magazines every Thursday, and the announcement "Tony Stratton-Smith is looking for twelve-string guitarist and drummer sensitive to acoustic music" attracts his attention. Phil doesn't know much the Genesis, but often sees them in the commercials of the concerts in the newspapers. A good sign - he thinks - means that they make many.

instead Collins has already known Strat since the days of the gods Freehold, a band in which he played for a short time. THE Freehold they lived in a hotel on Russell Square in Bloomsbury. That hotel is also where Phil first met Tony Stratton-Smith. They become friends, they like each other, according to him. So he thinks he can have a fast track, a good word, to get into Genesis, without going through the auditions. Track Stratton-Smith al Marquee Club. It offers you a drink and talks to him about the announcement. 

«No, no, no, my boy, - Strat replies - they are demanding types. You have to call them back. You have to go audition. "

Also to be strong, Phil invites his friend Ronnie Caryl, also looking for an escape from the Flaming Youth and aspiring to the role that was Ant. The appointment is at the home of Peter's parents in Chobham, Surrey, the following week. A middle-aged lady opens the door. It's Ms. Gabriel.
«Come in, come in. - he says - You are a little early. Take a swim while you wait. "

Even the swimming pool! - Phil thinks - Things in his life are just getting better. If only he had thought of bringing his bathing suit. However he decides to take a dip. Over the past two years he has learned to seize any opportunity. Who knows - he wonders - if they'll ever offer him a dip in a private heated pool again. She takes off her jeans and is left with only her briefs, then dives. It is a first class luxury that he is not at all used to.

While splashing around in the pool, Phil hears the rehearsals of his two rival drummers. The standard is acceptable and by listening to them he understands who he has to contend with for the place. But meanwhile, continue enjoying the pool, to calm your nerves. Then it's his turn. Peter arrives, holding the unedited anchor in his hand Trespass.

It makes him feel three pieces: Stagnation, Looking for Someone, The Knife. But when he sits on drums, Collins has already memorized the part that they are using in the auditions and shows a security that affects everyone. And at the end of the test, he is sure he did well.

He is also the last drummer of the day and therefore, between a chat and another, he tries to understand how his audition went. But in vain. All that can receive is a classic "we'll let you know".

He hardly thinks about it when the phone rings 8 on Hanworth Road on August 453th. Phil made it. Later he will discover that Peter has quickly realized that he is the right type for Genesis, Mike is less convinced. Tony confident, but reserved.

He tries to be indifferent, but inside he makes leaps of joy. He finally found a group. Ronnie instead does not pass the "exam". For the new guitarist the research continues.

But that's another story.

READ WHY

ARCHIVE - Peter Gabriel, on May 19, 1986 the album "So" was released

Peter Gabriel - I know

Birthday of So, the album which, released on May 19, 1986, gave Peter Gabriel total worldwide success, not yet arrived with the first four discs.

Here are 10 elements that recount Peter's turning point.


English English Italiano Italiano

by Eugenio Delmale

1. After four albums in which all the cymbals were often banned, Red Rain, which opens So, begins with a surprising reintroduction of unused "metals". A significant break with the past, perhaps to show that the author is a new Peter Gabriel. The first sound of the song, in fact, is that of charleston and the dishes of Stewart Copeland to the Police, one of the many illustrious collaborators of this album.

2. Hard to believe, but Sledgehammer it was included in the album only at the last moment and it was born almost by chance, from an idea that ran in Peter's head, but that had not yet been developed, even if the recordings of the album were almost completed. The rhythm section was born first, created by the new drummer Manu Katché and Tony Levin on bass, then Daniel Lanois' guitar (another novelty, above all as a producer), and finally the wind section of the Memphis Horns. The title derives from the building-type metaphors used by Gabriel and Lanois in the recording room. The single comes fourth in the UK and first in the USA, undermining its own Invisible Touch of the Genesis. And the video of the song is record-breaking. Read the Horizons Radio article HERE.

3. Report Mario Giammetti (in Peter Gabriel. Not one of us, Ed. Sign), that the characteristic bass sound of Tony Levin in Don't Give Up, derives from the use of his daughter's diapers, to obtain that muffled tone. The female voice had to be initially that of Dolly Parton, American country star, who does not accept. So Gabriel turns to Kate Bush, remaining very satisfied. Although, writes Gabriel in the album's liner notes, the roots remain "gospel / country (...) in Richard Tee's fantastic way of playing the piano. "This hymn to overcoming obstacles has helped many people." Gabriel said that a well-known rock star and a comic actor both confessed that the song convinced them to give up suicide. "(Daryl Easlea, Without borders. Life and music of Peter Gabriel, Ed. Arcana)

4. Unusually the text of That Voice Again it is written together with David Rhodes, who, with Gabriel and Lanois, is the third main author of the album. A solution that the Canadian producer had to resort to, given that Peter did not decide to complete the lyrics of the song. It is possible that Gabriel could not go on for the theme of the song, which refers to his conjugal crisis of the moment with Jill. After 10 years ("not to create connections with Genesis", he told the Italian magazine Hello 2001), the 12-string guitar played by Lanois returns to the music of the singer. As rarely happens, the song begins with the refrain.

5. In Your Eyes sees the participation of various choristers including Jim Kerr of Simple Minds and above all the Senegalese singer Youssou N'Dour, who sings in the language here Wolof. It is probably a declaration of love for Rosanna Arquette, the American actress known on the evening of the concert Six of the best (read and listen to the Horizons Radio special). In crisis with Jill for years, Peter had a strange relationship with her. It is certainly the first direct love song composed by Gabriel in his solo career. And to say that it was initially titled Sagrada Familia and was inspired by the Cathedral of Barcelona and its creator, Antoni Gaudi.

6. Various overdubbed Peter voices contribute to the touching beauty of Mercy Street. Among these, a particularly low one was recorded at seven in the morning, to obtain a natural gloom. The percussion is by the Brazilian Djalma Correa, recorded by Gabriel in Rio de Janeiro. The wonderful bass work is by Larry Klein. Although officially inspired by the almost homonymous work of the American poet Anne Sexton, Mario Giammetti (in Peter Gabriel. Not one of us, Ed. Sign) reports an episode, told by Gabriel himself, which may have influenced the text: a makeshift landing, just of the flight to Brazil, taken to meet Correa.

7. A first version of Big Time, with the title Success had been recorded in the days of Security. Third single of the album, it reached the eighth place in the chart in the United States, where they appreciated the funky atmosphere of the song and its philosophy, so close to the American dream, even if declined with irony. Fundamental in the passage is the drumstick bass guitar, played by Tony Levin, who presses the strings, and by Jerry Marotta, who strikes them, obtaining that characteristic sound of the rhythmic part, combined with the Stewart Copeland drums.

8. Originally recorded for melt, then candidate to join Security, We Do What We're Told (Milgram's 37) it's different from the other tracks on the record, since it comes from musically remote times for Peter. Played on tour since 1980, in fact, it was an old acquaintance of the fans of the first hour. "He's there to show his new audience that if Gabriel wanted it it could still be disturbing and disturbing." (Daryl Easlea, Without borders. Life and music of Peter Gabriel, Ed. Arcana). The text is famously based on an experiment that scientifically demonstrated the Nazi "banality of evil", a theme also used by Genesis in the passage Just A Job To Do (Album genesis).

9. The vinyl ends with Milgram, but not the cassette and CD versions, closed by This Is The Picture (Excellent Birds) - and, in remastering, from In Your Eyes -, variations dictated by Gabriel's obsession with the sequence of the songs and the good mix of tails and attacks of the same. To insert This Is The Picture it was a singular choice, given that, composed with Laurie Anderson, was already part of the American artist's album two years earlier Mister Heartbreak, in a different version and with the title Excellent Birds. Gabriel wanted it fearing that he did not have enough material, other oddities, since he had already complete and unpublished songs such as Don't Break This Rhythm o curtains, which instead will become the B side of the singles Sledgehammer e Big Time.

10. Finally the cover and the title So. Surprisingly, the album comes with an outwardly normal packaging, with a beautiful portrait of Peter made by Trevor Key and none of the formal oddities present in the previous ones. Furthermore, for the first time Peter decides to use a title. Magazine Rolling Stone asked him why. "The new album has a universal title, - Gabriel replies -, so people won't risk buying the same record twice. I'm very happy I did, because it's in line with the small style change; I wanted the album were elementary, alive, natural ". (Cit. In Daryl Easlea, Without borders. Life and music of Peter Gabriel, Ed. Arcana). The video of Sledgehammer, the subject of another, contributed to the great success of the album Horizons Radio article - READ IT HERE. that's how Stephen R. Johnson and Peter Gabriel realized this and the following.

ARCHIVE - Genesis: the first concert with singer Phil Collins, March 26, 1976

Unforgettable stories and memories, through audio, video, documents and much more.

By D.B.

Select Language

English English Italiano Italiano

Genesis' first concert with Phil Collins singer took place at the London Arena in London Ontario, Canada on March 26, 1976. 

Listen to the podcast (in Italian) - CLICK HERE

With Peter Gabriel's farewell to Genesis, Phil Collins became the frontman of the band, which released "A Trick of the Tail" on February 2, 1976 - READ THE ARTICLE OF HORIZONS RADIO.

The LP comes in third place in the rankings of the United Kingdom, such as "Selling England by the Pound ”and becomes their greatest success. Which reassures them. After all, the expectations for the future of the group were very low. But then people heard the record and the quartet's prices went up.

The tour will start on March 26th.

But of course we have to solve the problem of who will play the drums in concert. And Phil doesn't want to abandon his instrument. Collins recounts in his autobiography:

"Bill Bruford, already with Yes, is a good friend who introduced me to a lot of jazz drummers. He comes to one of the tests of the Brand X (we're writingI sell "Unorthodox Behavior") and asks:

"How are you with Genesis? Have you found a singer? '
"Not exactly. I sang on the album, and they want
try to make me sing. But to do it we need toto find a drummer. "
"Well, why don't you ask me?"
«I think you would say no. A little too similar to Yes for you, no? "
"Instead I would."
And here Genesis have a new drummer. "

So Phil has no more excuses. Everyone adapts and gets used to the new set-up and new training.
set-up and new training.

"We don't great ceremonies: it just happens. I don't remember nemless than having rehearsed, or an announcement ", Phil remembers.

Bill Bruford fits in immediately, moreover, it is one of the largest of its kind prog and not only. 

"I'm not particularnervous about the idea of ​​singing, nor about the fact to do it in front of an audience - racconta Phil Phil says -.
to do it in front of an audience - Phil says -. I was already used to it with Oliver !, in his time. But sing with just a microfono between me and the audience, instead of a row of dishes: this is the problem to overcome. If one does not it is worn for bat hats and for flying to in mid-air, what do you do when you don't sing? "

Remember Mike Rutherford in his autobiography:

"We had deliberately chosen Canada because they had less memory of the concerts with Pete there than in Europe. Pete had been such a strong figure that we couldn't imagine how Phil could replace him. "

There are also other practical problems.

For example: how to dress. The suit from
worker was ideal when he was only the drummer. And to wear masks and costumes "Peter Gabriel" is not mentioned. 

"I can put on my coppola and kingdingote for Robbery, Assault and Battery, but this is it the most I am willing to do ", says Phil.

Then the worker suit is chosen. And then there is another concern. Peter Gabriel was very good at entertaining the public with his stories while Mike, Tony and Steve agreecompartment. What can Phil tell?

Then the time comes.

At the London Arena the hall lights dim.

"I spend most of the concert hiding behind the microphone stand: I am a XNUMX-year-old being as thin as a drumstick.
And I don't even touch the microphone. Removing it from the support would be a gesture too ... as a singer.
But I get to the end of the concert bringing only small dents to my fragile awareness of frontman.
",
recalls Phil.

"People were on his side from day one - Mike says -. On stage, Phil has always been a very visual drummer - never flashy but very spectacular.

I will never forget Phil in his T-shirt, his long beard and his trembling hand. And then don't have Pete there ... A strange moment for everyone.
But after playing the first two songs, I realized that it would be all right.

And so it was. Phil's lecture helped us. It lightened the atmosphere. Pete was mysterious on stage, Phil was always the boy next door ", recalls Mike.

There are 2.200 fans at the London Arena on Bathurst Street for Collins' debut as frontman. Genesis expected no more than a hundred people and instead here is the proof that the band's popularity is not decreasing.

Nthere is no public recording of this concert, although it appears that a copy is owned by a collector. Here are those of two successive dates:

The most of setlist of that March 26 is taken from A Trick Of The Tail.

For the 40th anniversary of that historic date for Genesis and rock all, the site Genesisfan has reported...

The memories of those who were in the Canadian arena.

"The band members seemed very nervous - says one of them, Brad Ashton-Haiste -. But after a couple of tracks, everyone had huge smiles. Maybe they thought, 'Phil will work' ".

Another fan, Jim Fisk, took photographs of the concert, which he later sold to the press.

"Phil and Bill's duets are incredible. Speed, technical and musical excellence", remember Fisk.

And say that when the Canadian date had gone on presale Genesis did not yet have a singer.

Ma on March 26 Collins proved to be true frontman. And those present attended a "historic" event.

Stories and Memories:

«We crossed the Channel, taking a ferry from Dover to Ostend from Dover to Ostend », said Richard Macphail in My book of Genesis.

“It was the middle of winter and there was hardly anyone else on board. (...)
It was still just the seven of us on the road together, which when you look at the armies of crew that bands employ nowadays seems ludicrously small.

It was a four-hourcrossing and we were bored stiffbecause there
there was nothing to do. I found this box with life vests in it,,
and so we all got our vests on and posed for what has now become a famous picture of Genesis, all of us with our hair down past our shoulders, Mike drinking from a small bottle of Mateus Rosé
because that's what we drank in those days, that or Liebfraumilch.

(...) Nowadays when you go abroad you have satellite navigation that tells you precisely where to go and mobile phones or with maps on them, but I really had no idea where we were heading in Belgium. I didn't even have a fold-out map.

(...) The place, a club called Ferme V, packed to the roof, but the fans knew every note. It was unbelievable. While in England it was a very slow build-up, in Belgium it happened very suddenly, like a minor explosion as far as we were concerned.

Another thing I remember is that we stayed in a three-star hotel, very comfy, and that Peter shared a room with me because he couldn't bear to share with Tony ever again, not after his experiences at the cottage.»

Past to Present Show RICHARD SINCLAIR in Rome, WITH -Notturno Concertante - The Coastliners -

Richard Sinclair

Famous English bassist, guitarist and singer, in the 70s he founded historic Canterbury area groups such as Caravan and Hatfield And The North, played in the legendary Camel by Andy Latimer and Peter Bardens, played in Robert Wyatt's masterpiece Rock Bottom and in numerous parallel projects between jazz-rock, progressive and acoustic music. The success of Caravan's third album In the Land of Gray and Pink was such that this album has never gone out of production since 1971, when it was released on the market.

The start of what will later be called "The Canterbury Scene" sees a XNUMX-year-old Richard found, with his brothers Hugh and Brian Hopper, the first Canterbury band, the seminal and influential The Wilde Flowers, born from a rib of Daevid Allen Trio. This band was joined by Robert Wyatt, Pye Hastings, Kevin Ayers, Richard Coughlan, David Sinclair and Graham Flight, among others.

From this first nucleus all the main Canterbury groups such as Soft Machine, Caravan and Gong have arisen, but above all, more than 35 years of wonderful original and eccentric music have sprung, with a stimulating and often melancholy timbre, full of inventiveness, a combination of jazz, folk music, classical music, Anglican sacred hymns, rock and psychedelia.

The original albums, starting with Richard's first album with Caravan, which dates back to 1968, have all been reissued and put back on the market. In 2005, with the release of the highly anticipated Hatfield and the North collection entitled Hatwise Choice, the Richard Sinclair Band has certainly evolved, including new instrumentalists such as percussionist Pip Pyle (recently deceased) and keyboardist Alex Maguire.

I NIGHT CONCERTANT

The Notturno Concertante is a group that has seven CDs to its credit, recently released the new album entitled "Let them say". Among the numerous collaborations of the group, the publication of the song "Nocturne" as part of the Double Exposure compilation, edited by Steven Wilson. Former Genesis guitarist Anthony Phillips participated in this compilation, among others.

The group has also soundtracked various radio stories by the writer Giovanna Iorio for Radio 3 Rai.

In addition, the Notturno Concertante has collaborated with Tony Pagliuca (keyboard player of the Orme), with the Bolognese poet Stefano Benni, with the winner of the Campiello prize Andrea Tarabbia and with the actresses Lina SastriPamela VilloresiDaniela Poggi e Barbara Alberti.

The historical members of the Notturno Concertante are Lucio Lazzaruolo guitars and keyboards and the guitarist Raffaele Villanova.

Il Notturno Concertante wrote and performed the music for several films including "The Last Goal" (directed by Federico Di Cicilia) and for the documentary "With my eyes" by the director Giorgio Rights (2013).

He has also composed the music for the series “The clinic of animals” (by Tania Pedroni, Canale 5, 2002), Terra e fede (Rai 2, 2002). The group recently performed several concerts with the Scottish singer Ray Wilson (Eg genesis).
