Peter Gabriel has asked that this response be published when he found out that his track 'Sledgehammer' has been used on the Rush Limbaugh show:
'Peter was appalled to learn that his music was linked to Rush Limbaugh's extraordinary attack on Sandra Fluke. It is obvious from anyone that knows Peter's work that he would never approve such a use. He has asked his representatives to make sure his music is withdrawn and especially from these unfair aggressive and ignorant comments. '

Peter Gabriel's song 'Lovetown' was first released in February 1993 on the soundtrack to the film 'Philadelphia' and was included on the film's soundtrack album. The video for the track was inspired by the art work of Yayoi Kusama, who Peter collaborated with on the video. He had also worked with Yayoi Kusama in 1992 when Yayoi Kusama was one of 11 artists who created images for Peter's 'Art From Us' project. Lovetown was not included on the 'Us' album but was released as a single in 1994. The video was released as part of a compilation of Peter's videos entitled 'Play' in 2004. Yayoi Kusama also worked with Peter on the "EvE" CD-ROM, released in 1996.
Yayoi Kusama has an exhibition forthcoming at The Tate which runs from the 9 February -- 5 June 2012. For more information follow the link below.
