Supper’s ready: here’s the main course… Uncut’s latest Ultimate Music Guide is an ambitious survey of the entire, brilliant career of Genesis – from prog shapeshifters to stadium gods. We’ve delved deep into the archives of NME and Melody Maker, finding interviews with the band that have languished unseen since the 1970s and ‘80s. “If our present success continues, we’ll be in the situation where we can realize most of our ambitions in music,” Peter Gabriel tells Melody Maker in 1973. “I hope what we do will be completely new.”
Alongside all these revelations, we’ve written in-depth new reviews of every single Genesis album, from their 1969 debut right up until 1997’s Calling All Stations. We’ve also investigated the significant solo careers: not just of Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins, but of Steve Hackett, Anthony Phillips, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks, too. It’s a tricky tale, but an endlessly rewarding one – Genesis: The Ultimate Music Guide.
