On 20 January 1973 the Italian part of the Foxtrot Tour of the Genesis (second date on the 22nd in Rome - LOOK). Here are notes and images of that evening.

The first very famous photo of the third landing on the Genesis peninsula, after two of the previous year, is this one, at the Cral Club of the'Linate airport in Milan, in a press conference together with the Lindisfarne, who have just arrived in Italy. Here she is:

A historic moment, this, for the Genesis, inaugurated on September 28 of the previous year in Dublin, the beginning of an era of masks and disguises, even if not completely shared by the other members of the band.

Even in Supper's Ready the famous costumes have not yet appeared. Peter will insert them in a month in the English part of the tour. In Italy, at the end of  Apocalypse in 9/8 looks like this:

Genesis: 50 years ago the first success abroad starts from Belgium, January 15, 1972 - AUDIO, VIDEO & MEMORIES

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

Select Language

English English Italiano Italiano

In January 1972, the Genesis begin to "colonize" countries across the Channel. Here are the first steps of an international success.

They have already performed abroad, in Belgium, in March and August, here is the recording of the first concert, on 7 March 1971:

And they also recorded mini-concerts at the Belgian TV. On August 7, 1971 the Nursery cryme Tour it started right in Belgium, in Brussels, and on December 17th they did the first concert in France, at the Gibus Club in Paris. Here is the poster:

But the Genesis still hasn't set foot firmly outside the UK.

Il January 15, 1972 at the Petite Salle of Arlon, in Belgium, instead begins a mini tour, destined to expand and to bring them also to Italy, in April and then in the summer.

Here is theconcert audio the day after, at the Charleroi Festival:

Here a reflection by Phil Collins on this tour, taken from No, I'm not dead yet: Autobiography:

"Just a year and a half ago I was a boy from Hounslow who lived at the end of the subway. And now this more or less international worship. It doesn't matter that in England we almost always play in pubs, or on beer boxes, or both.

Yes, back in the real world we still go to play with a bus hired by a shady company in Kensington. The quality of the bus decides our punctuality at the concert. We often have breakdowns on the street. Even several times. During the trip to Aberystwyth University we break down three times in the first leg, arrive too late to play, and again we walk twice on the way back. "

Others artwork di bootleg with the recording of the Charleroi concert:


From January 22 another minitour, also in Belgium. It starts from the Athenee Royal Du Woluwe St Pierre in Brussels, the day after the Genesis still perform at the Palais des Beaux Arts in Charleroi. On the 24th morning in the Belgian TV studios in Brussels, to then finish the same evening at 
Trocadero of Liege.

They will also return to Belgian TV on March 20Here is the recording:

Success is about to come and Belgium is the first nation to understand the musical proposal of Genesis. Even in Italy the number of fans is growing exponentially. And the tour in the peninsula will prove it. But that's another story.

Genesis: 50 years ago the first concert at the Reading Festival, 26 June 1971 - AUDIO, VIDEO & MEMORIES

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

Select Language

English English Italiano Italiano

On June 26, 1971, Genesis took the stage of the Reading Festival for the first time.

Here is the poster taken from the site of Reading Museum:

It is the first ever Reading Festival, held near the Thames in Richfield Avenue between Friday 25 June and Sunday 27 June 1971. Among the artists in addition to Genesis, Lindisfarne and Wishbone Ash.

The Reading Festival originated from an annual Jazz and Blues festival organized by the National Jazz Federation and the Marquee Club of London in 1961.

The first Reading Festival took place in 1971 when promoter Harold Pendleton staged the event as part of the celebrations for the 850th anniversary of the founding of Reading Abbey.

To learn more:

Since 1980 the festival has achieved an international reputation, including the biggest names in rock music.

The late 80s and early 90s saw changes in the contemporary music scene with new indie and cross-over dance sounds.

Nearly 90.000 music fans flock to Reading every August Bank Holiday, making the city an internationally recognized name on the music scene.

It has become an important part of Reading life and in late 2004 the Reading Museum organized a large retrospective exhibition called 'Music, Mud and Mayhem', which chronicles the festival's 30-year history.

Genesis have attended the Reading Festival several times. Here are the recordings.

During the Nursery Cryme Tour on 11 August 1972:

On August 26, 1973:

On August 26, 1979, Phil Collins joined Peter Gabriel at the Reading Festival and performs with him The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway:

Biko:

White Shadow:

No Self Control:

Mother of Violence:

And here are Steve Hackett's holdings:

The songs performed by Steve Hackett in Reading in 1981 are contained in the album "Premonitions - The Charisma Recordings 1975-1983".

"They played two shows at the Hammersmith Odeon on June 10th and 11th.

Collins greets the audience by saying: 'Good evening London ...

And tonight we took three pieces from the story ... and we rather casually renamed it 'Lamb Stew'. 

For "White Mountain" Rutherford says: 'And back in the days when the tinkling of beer mugs was heard during the acoustic tunes, we were playing songs from the Trespass album. Acoustic songs from the Trespass album. So tonight we should play one called 'White Mountain'.

Steve Hackett introduces his song "Entangled" by saying: 'It's a waltz, a slow three-beat so take your partners'.

Before "Los Endos" Collins announces that they have recorded the show for an album. 'I suppose, since you are all there, you will buy it.'

The encore is the medley of "It" and "Watcher Of The Skies". The latter is instrumental and has never been sung by Collins live. "

30 years of Dusk Genesis Magazine: interview with the Founder and Director Mario Giammetti

Dusk, the first and historic Italian Genesis Magazine, has turned 30. The Founder and Director Mario Giammetti tells them to Horizons Genesis.

Select Language

English English Italiano Italiano

30 years of Dusk.

On March 16, 1991, the number zero of a glorious fanzine (later transformed into a glossy magazine) was closed in the virtual editorial office of Dusk which, unique in the world, still stands today in printed form.

To celebrate this incredible anniversary, in addition to the special issue reserved only for the associates they are working on, the creator and director Mario Giammetti and his working group asked the members of Genesis to share the joy with them.

Watch the videos here.

Mario Giammetti tells Horizons Genesis about 30 years of Dusk.

- When and why did you have the idea of ​​a publication dedicated to Genesis?

In 1990 I went to see Anthony Phillips, whom no one in Italy that I know of had ever interviewed. We talked for over an hour but Ciao 2001, which I was collaborating on at the time, only gave me three or four pages, for a result of two pages. What about the rest, I wondered? A pen pal of mine at the time told me: why don't you print the full interview and sell it to fans? This seemed impractical to me, but it reminded me that, perhaps, there were several people interested in having more news about the world of Genesis. At the time only Ciao 2001 and Rockstar talked about it, but obviously only on the occasion of new albums. Also at that time there were fanzines dedicated to artists, in my opinion, much less important than Genesis, so I decided to try, just for fun: already having a book ("Genesis Story", Gammalibri 1988) and three years of articles on Hello, I jumped across the fence out of curiosity by making a photocopied number zero which I sent in exchange for a postage stamp.

- Besides Dusk, what other names did you consider?

None, actually. When I thought about the name, I told myself it had to be short and immediate. Dusk lent himself to all of this. Furthermore, its translation also hid a hidden meaning: twilight, sunset. Which went along with my idea of ​​always being objective, without ever being blinded by the fan vision. Coming to admit, if necessary, even the twilight of an adventure. Which, however, never happened. At least, not entirely.

- What were the difficulties of this enterprise and what continue to be?

Manpower, if we can say so. Although with the essential help of fantastic collaborators, the practical and economic management (even if for a couple of years on this last point I have received substantial help from Stefano Tucciarelli) continues to weigh exclusively on my shoulders. This is certainly positive on the one hand, because I don't have to ask anyone's permission on the choices I'm going to make, but it gets really heavy when it comes to completing a number. I am referring to the realization, always very complicated, but also to the purely physical aspect: bringing the envelopes and packages to the post offices is frighteningly tiring. On postal disservices, then, it is better to spread a merciful veil.

- What has been the greatest satisfaction of these 30 years?

From a personal point of view, obviously knowing, albeit at various levels, my favorite musicians. Then the fact that, albeit rarely, sometimes I got things with Dusk that I had been denied as a journalist (more often, to be honest, the opposite has happened, but there is). But the greatest joy is having the number in hand, fresh off the press. It has been happening for 30 years and it is always an emotion, even if at times it turns into disappointment due to some unexpected printing error or a typographical work that is not exactly flawless.

- What was the hardest interview you've been chasing the longest?

Phil Collins. After a brief face-to-face meeting in Perugia in 1996, I had to wait eight years before finally being able to do a proper interview with him at the Filaforum in Assago in 2004. Experience then replicated in 2010 and, by telephone, in 2016.

- Who is the most interviewed Genesis member and why?

Certainly Steve Hackett, for two reasons: first, he is by far the most active of all. Second, he is also incredibly helpful and, moreover, very reliable and quite accurate in his memories.

- We don't think so, but did you miss someone from the Genesis galaxy to interview?

Peter Gabriel has not yet accepted an exclusive interview. I met him several times and personally asked him questions at press conferences or round table (chats for a limited number of reporters, usually eight), but my endless requests for a face-to-face or telephone call to his assistants have not yet been successful. For the rest, I would say that I have really intercepted everyone, at least those alive. Including the most inaccessible of all: John Silver.

- What do the Genesis think of Dusk?

They are certainly all grateful for the work we do, aware that this kind of publications are used to keep the flame burning and feeding. There is of course the problem of the language, so they cannot read what I write even if, to tell the truth, I don't think that, at least the big ones, would care that much. Tony Banks, for example, has repeatedly stated that he does not read reviews or books about the band and that he was forced to do so in the case of Mike Rutherford's biography (only to regret it bitterly!). Steve Hackett, on the other hand, is very attentive and interested and, if I send him the translation of an article, surely he reads it.

- Have they ever asked you (even some Genesis members) to translate Dusk's articles into other languages?

For some years there has been a photocopied English version of Dusk, at least of most of the articles included in each issue. But then I stopped: it wasn't worth it because foreign subscribers have always been a small minority. On the other hand, there are countless times that someone has told me “if it were in English, I would not lose a Dusk issue”. They are the ones who liked my book very much "Genesis 1967 To 1975: The Peter Gabriel Years”, Published last year by London-based Kingmaker.

- Since Dusk is the only paper publication in the world on Genesis, what feedback do you have from abroad?

Let's go back to the language; those who do not speak Italian concentrate on the impact of the photos and on the contents and it is not uncommon for some foreign friends to write to me asking for more information on something they have picked up but obviously cannot fully understand. But there are a handful of enthusiasts who follow us with absolute fidelity even without understanding a single sentence: they just need to look at how the newspaper is structured to understand that it is always worth it.

- You do not always agree with the choices of Genesis (see for example the last reunion) or with the quality and necessity of certain reprints. And don't censor yourself. Do you think this editorial line will change over time?

Absolutely not. When there has been criticism, we have always done so, without any hesitation, in accordance with the editorial of number zero. We can obviously disagree, but certainly no one can accuse us of bias. From time to time someone calls me the number one fan of Genesis, thinking of paying me a compliment, but for me it is not at all: that you adore the band is obvious, but I consider myself a journalist first and only rebound a fan. For this I use, for the albums that I review on Dusk, the same critical approach that I used with Hello, Rockstar, Jam and that I still use for Classic Rock: total sincerity, without discounts to anyone.

- What is the hardest criticism and the most beautiful praise from the readers?

Some readers in the past have called us a sort of Steve Hackett's fanclub, because we talk about him more and more than others. But how could it be otherwise, given that it publishes three times what all the others put together? Some other readers believe that too much space is given to Anthony Phillips (forgetting that he was the founder and for a short time even the leader of the band). Finally, many hate Ray Wilson and not even cordially. I once met a former subscriber at a concert who, after introducing himself, candidly confided to me that he had stopped following us because he couldn't stand the idea of ​​seeing Ray on the pages of Dusk! But Ray was a member of Genesis, for which he sang on a record and tour. As such, it has exactly the same rights as the other members even if, obviously, it does not hold the same artistic palmares.

Among the praise, first of all the constancy; many readers are almost in disbelief at such perseverance and see Dusk as a family friend who visits them at home every four months. Intellectual honesty and the attitude to always write without filters, something not so frequent in the world of the so-called fanclubs (a category in which Dusk, moreover, does not fall), where one is often subjected to artists, is also very appreciated: pride that has never happened and that if any mistake has been made, and has happened, it was, if anything, out of affection, certainly not out of opportunism.

- Do you also foresee a more consistent development on the web for the next few years or do you remain faithful to the value of the paper?

I recognize the importance of the web, but it's not for me. When Dusk ceases to print, it will only remain a good memory, at best the minimal website as it is today.

Thanks to Mario Giammetti, happy birthday and good luck for the next, many, years of Dusk.

On March 7, 1971, the Genesis went on stage abroad for the first time, at La Ferme V, Woluwe St Lambert, Belgium. LISTEN:

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.»

«Philippe Grombeer (future artistic director of the major Belgian theaters) is a member of the" Club of the Eagles ", and has rented, on behalf of the municipal administration, a farm in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert (a suburb of Brussels)"STOP V". The space is not large, the interior is old, but what does it matter! "  -  CONTINUE ON GENESIS PLACES

«Some privileged people saw them in all intimacy and shared everything with them. And with good reason: Belgium was the first foreign country in which the Genesis set foot. " - CONTINUE ON NOSTALGIE
