"With the number 88, Dusk enters his 28th year of honored activity", recalls Mario Giammetti.
"The centerpiece of the April issue (68 pages in letterpress, with a sixteenth in color) is of course Tony Banks' new album "Five", analyzed by the musician and critic Francesco Gazzara ". On the side, the long exclusive interview given by Tony to Giammetti himself.
"It is also reviewed well in advance the third set of Anthony Phillips dedicated to the "Private Parts And Pieces" series, which will be in stores on April 27. This beautiful clamshell box - recalls Giammetti - contains not only the volumes 9-10-11 of the series, but also a completely unreleased fourth cd, sought after by the archivist Jonathan Dann who is also the author of the very detailed booklet (where the cover of Dusk n. 72 also peeps) ".
"Among the new releases, a double date with Steve Hackett, protagonist (the dvd / blu-ray "Wuthering Nights" and the cd / dvd "It's Never The Same Twice", this in cohabitation with the Hungarians Djabe), but also the new albums by Dale Newman (historical handyman of The Farm studies), "Everything Is Recorded" (with guest Peter Gabriel) and Orphaned Land (with the omnipresent Steve) ".
Rich the live sectionsays Giammetti: "our collaborators, unleashed everywhere, tell us about the cruise prog 'Cruise To The Edge' with Hackett, of which Luca Benporath also reviews the Montreal concert of 11 February of his 'Genesis Revisited, Solo Gems & GTR 2018 tour de force'. Marcelo Olguin instead tells the concert of Phil Collins in Montevideo, Uruguay, of March 17, and Paolo Scattarreggia not only that of Mike & The Mechanics of Ft Lauderdale the day before (March 16), but also a previous appearance by Collins at the Little Dreams Foundation gala. "
"The playful part is ensured by Enrico Geretto's imaginary interview with Peter Gabriel, and by Giampaolo Palazzo's journey in Genesis places. The latter initiative is structured in two sections, the second is curated by Albert Gouder, who visited some of the most spectacular places in Surrey where the legend Genesis took shape ".
"Finally, the readers' address book, where we also talk about the 40 years of the Genesis concert in Zurich in 1978 ".
"All seasoned by dozens and dozens of photos, unpublished and otherwise", concludes Mario Giammetti.
