Welcome to The Waiting Room - the Genesis web-fanzine featuring all the news, reviews, interviews and more concerning Genesis and related projects - first, a word from the creators of TWR...
WORDS FROM THE EDITING SUITE….
Hello and welcome to this, the latest edition of your favourite online Genesis magazine!
Peter Gabriel continues to tease us by releasing tracks from the long overdue I/O album as download only "singles". So far two tracks have been released: Panopticom and The Court. Not being a fan of downloads, I have to admit that I haven't given either of these as much attention as I perhaps should have, but have to say that the former did not impress me at all. Come on Peter! 21 years is way too long to wait for an album which was ostensibly ready in 1999. Just release the thing and put us out of our misery! The European/UK tour has been well publicised and fans are awaiting the announcement of US shows to follow. TWR will be in attendance at one of the upcoming gigs and we shall let you have our thoughts on the show in a future edition.
Esoteric Records' reissue campaign for Anthony Phillips' back catalogue finally reached the underrated Wildlife album which was released on 25th January and the new edition is, as usual crammed with extra material and another highly informative essay from Ant's archivist; Jonathan Dann.
Mike & The Mechanics will be on tour in the UK by the time this edition goes online. No indications of any new material from the band but the shows will no doubt be as excellent as usual.
Steve Hackett is currently taking time out to write and record for a new album. A handful of shows have already been announced in various territories and no doubt the band will kick into touring overdrive once the album is ready and of course, TWR hopes to have the lowdown on the new album once it is ready.
Ray Wilson continues to be a busy boy with another incessant round of touring in Europe.
That's all the news for this edition, enjoy the rest of the mag!
