Genesis και Pink Floyd δεν έχουν ιδιαίτερα κοινά στοιχεία από μουσική άποψη, μοιράζονται όμως μια κοινή ιστορία: οι άνθρωποι που δημιούργησαν τις δυο μπάντες και υπήρξαν στο ξεκίνημα οι “ηγέτες” τους …έφυγαν νωρίς για να ακολουθήσουν σόλο καριέρα. Η περίπτωση Syd Barrett είναι γνωστή, λιγότερος κόσμος γνωρίζει όμως τον Anthony Philips, κιθαρίστα – συνθέτη-ιδρυτή των Genesis, που μετά τα δυο πρώτα άλμπουμ [From Genesis To Revelation, Trespass] τους εγκατέλειψε λόγω αυξανόμενης δυσανεξίας στις συνθήκες των τουρνέ – κυρίως λόγω αγοραφοβίας. Ακούμε την εισαγωγή και το φινάλε της ηλεκτρονικής σουίτας του, “Iceflight” από το άλμπουμ του Private Parts & Pieces VII: Slow Waves, Soft Stars [1987]

Genesis and Pink Floyd do not have particularly common musical elements, but share a common story: the people who created the two bands and there were at the beginning their “leaders”… left early, going solo. The case of Syd Barrett is known, but less people know about Anthony Philips, the guitarist-composer-founder of Genesis, who left the band after the first two albums [From Genesis To Revelation, Trespass] due to an increasing intolerance to tour conditions – mainly due to agoraphobia. We listen to the intro and the finale of his electronic suite “Iceflight”, from his album Private Parts & Pieces VII: Slow Waves, Soft Stars [1987]

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
