I had no idea he was pulling this one out of the archives. Most of the audience must have had no idea what was going on.


They were actually very receptive to it, far more than they were to Mull Of Kintyre, which may of them didn't seem to remember.

Last night there were changes - Jet and the obscure Temporary Secretary, which was much better than I remembered. After he fluffed the intro of Maybe I'm Amazed on Monday, last night's version was absolutely scorching. Another highlight was My Valentine which was dedicated to his current wife Nancy.

Phil's bassist, Leland Sklar, made a couple of responses about this news item as follows:

It was NOTHING! Give him a fucking break. I know. I was there.

and...

There was no real problem. Period!

Hi folks

A couple of the replies on here seem to be referencing Phil's funny intro, but in case you missed it, there's a moment half way through the song when Nic abandons play due to an issue with the keyboard. Phil's response is the funny moment!

George Shelby, Phil's saxophone player on the Not Yet Dead tour, would later explain on Facebook: The keyboard was messed up. The tech called up the wrong patch. Half the keyboard was in the wrong key. Not Nic's fault. He handled it extremely well.

Regards
The Captain.

I don't know about that - Tony has written a lot of what he calls "terminal songs", and "Fading Lights" seems to be on a pretty similar theme. I'm thinking of songs like "Undertow", "Cul-de-Sac", "Me and Sarah Jane", "Something Never", "The Final Curtain", and a significant part of A Curious Feeling.

I would agree, to me Fading Lights sounds very Banks, to the point that I cannot imagine either of the other two penning those lyrics.

Tony usually pens some quirky lyrics. However, listening to the lyrics for Fading Lights, it makes you wonder if he was going through something at the time because the lyrics are so far removed from anything else Tony has written, IMO.

Fairytale Of New York - Pogues

Happy Xmas (War Is Over) - John Lennon
Merry Xmas Everybody - Slade

I heard Joni Mitchell's River yesterday, which is set at Christmastime.


I watched John Lennon's 75th birthday celebration on television last night, and they played Happy Xmas (War Is Over). Yoko was in the audience, in the first few rows, and she was noticeably moved by everyone's love of her late hubbie's music. So many wonderful moments throughout the concert. If you get a chance to see it, please do. John's murder affected me deeply for many years, and still does. I found myself shedding a few tears last night as well.

‘5’ is a brand new orchestral album from Tony Banks and will be released on 2 February 2018 through BMG Records.

A Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee as a member of Genesis (2010), ‘5’ is Banks’ tenth album outside of the band and his third orchestral album following the releases of ‘Seven: A Suite for Orchestra’ (2004) and ‘Six Pieces for Orchestra’ (2012).

‘5’ is a collection of five compositions written by Tony Banks and was produced by long-time collaborator Nick Davis. Nick Ingman, renowned orchestrator and conductor, agreed to be involved in the project immediately after hearing the demos played to him personally by Banks. Ingman has worked with a plethora of artists and musicians from David Bowie and Oasis to the London Symphony Orchestra and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

The recording was built up over various sessions, the first in London’s Angel Studios where solos and percussion were recorded before a transfer to Prague for a week where concentrated sets of three sessions a day with the orchestra and choir. Recording section by section is a more rock/pop method and seen as unorthodox for an orchestral album, but this method allowed Banks, who also played all of the piano parts*, to use his vast musical experience and give himself greater creative control.

The impetus for ‘5’ was a commission for the 70th Cheltenham Music Festival in 2014, for which Banks composed the original version of what now appears as the opening track, ‘Prelude to a Million Years’. Then it was entitled ‘Arpegg’ and received its world première on Saturday 5 July 2014 with Maxime Tortelier conducting the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.

Following some consideration, Banks and Davis worked on four further pieces to join ‘Arpegg’ and form this new album. Feeling incomplete as an album of four compositions, Banks pulled inspiration from an earlier piece composed during his Genesis days and named it ‘Renaissance’ which completed the album.

1. Prelude to a Million Years
2. Reveille
3. Ebb & Flow
4. Autumn Sonata
5. Renaissance
