The interview from 1976 on page 52 briefly states that Mike and Peter had worked together on demos after The Lamb, which I've never heard about before. Is this true and did any of them ever come to light?

On a less pleasant note, I couldn't help but notice Tony's snide little comment about Steve later in the same interview. The man may be a compositional genius but...ugh. angry It's a wonder that Steve even stuck around for Wind & Wuthering. I certainly wouldn't tolerate a bandmate speaking that way about me in the press.

When Peter recorded his first demos for his post-Genesis solo songs, it was Mike, Phil, Ant, and John Goodsall from Brand X recording with him. Mike was on bass, Ant on keyboards, John Goodsall on guitar and Phil on drums. There's a bootleg with seven of these songs. Mostly you hear just Peter singing and playing piano himself though. In my ears Peter's voice on these recordings resembles very much his singing style from Selling England. Peter stated he felt recording with his (then former) Genesis band mates was a dead end street, he dumped all the songs except for one and started the quest for new musicians; the result was his partnership with Robert Fripp. The one song he kept was Here Comes The Flood.

Ant talked about this in some interview too, he said these recording sessions were a strange experience with him being the keyboardist and four Genesis members playing in this unusual constellation.

I've read about the post-Genesis recordings which Ant and Phil participated in.

However, I've also read the "Before The Flood" demos, which includes early versions of HCtF and Excuse Me, were recorded some point after that initial session, and doesn't feature any of the folks from Genesis.

Thanks for the information.

When asked if he thought the band were technically proficient, his response was "There are a lot of people who can play instruments better... Phil is a very good drummer, I would not deny that, but there are better guitarists than Steve when it comes to speed and technique."

A totally inappropriate way to speak publicly about someone who was an active member of the band at the time.
