It is very funny isn't it? Also when Jools asks Peter when his next album will be, especially as he has just brought one out. I think these are two things that Peter must be frequently confronted with!

. . .poor Peter :-]
(This reminds me of an old song "Always asking Questions" by Howard Jones. . .)
About the "Jools Holland Show", that is mentioned by the Soil - there are some good performances by Peter from this show:
- one show - I think this show with the interview above - featuring songs:
- "Growing Up", "In Your Eyes" (and 1 or 2 other songs)
- and Duddy : the version You get to hear on Your "PLAY-The Videos"-DVD of "Washing of the Water" is from a performance from "Later with Jools Holland" 2003.
Forgot to mention - also 2 tracks from "Ov" - performed in 2000 - "Father, Son" and "Downside Up" (both tracks on the "Still Growing Up-DVD").

Thank you Cimber(is that a soft C or a hard C?), I look out for these recommendations from you and other Lunatics. It is amazing what is hiding out there. I find it really difficult to just watch one or two tracks on these DVDs, they are so addictive. I am already a 'Still Growing Up' addict! I think White Ashes especially on there is one I am always playing. Oh yes and the POV 'No Self Control'.if only there were a DVD of that tour. Yet another thread that is on the go. I wonder if that holds the record for oldest thread?

. . .Duddy - read the "C" as "K".
About "White Ashes" :
I was standing there in the audience in May 2004, when Peter announced to play this song - actually an instrumental track from "OvO", but this time "with lyrics". . . .the band began to play. . .I was listening. . .then Peter started singing. . .Melanie in the back :
"White, white ashes - the building crashes down". . .
I was THRILLED - really - when Peter lifted up his voice at the end of the song. . .I once described this song somewhere else as "mind-blowing and hypnotizing" at the same time - fantastic track !

Wow, how great to have heard Peter sing this! It is an eerie and other worldly song so I must agree with your description. He has such a gift for getting emotions and atmosphere across, n'est ce pas? I like the way you type OvO like the cartoon artwork, two eyes with the frown in the middle.

Thanks Soil. . .I've never seen that video!
Thanks Cimber. . .I'll have to check out those PG performances on you tube. . .don't think I've ever seen those either!
And, btw, after all of this time. . .I've always thought it was a soft "C"! :-] I've learned something new today!
Duddy. . .I've learned much about PG since I've been a member here. . .and still learning!
Cimber1 June 2009 at 11:21pmPosts: 2570 (0 today)Status: offline
the story of. . . . . ."OvO". . . . . . . . . .
I like ALL live interpretations of the "OvO"-album :
"The Tower That Ate People"
(4 times Gabriel with a complete different sound !)
An image of the cartoon "OvO" - showing the main character "OvO" can be found in my "2007 tour-photos".

Cimber, yeah I know that there were also PG performances from Jools Holland's show. I simply posted the interview only because I only wanted to talk about that particular interview cause it's quite funny. (Even though it seems as if he knew all the questions before) And I wanted the people, who hadn't seen it before, to watch it, too.
MAK for example hadn't seen it yet.
The Jools Holland version of 'Washing of the Water' actually was the first version I got to hear of the song. Because it was the only version on youtube, before I bought the album. But I must say, that I like the Jools Holland version better than the original album version. I don't know, maybe it's cause I heard it first, or because it has much more soul and his vocals are better on it. That of course is only MY opinion.
No soft 'C'? I'm surprised now! Didn't think so.
Cimber7 June 2009 at 1:25pmPosts: 2570 (0 today)Status: offline
Actually a soft "C" sounds funny to me . . .
The "Jools Holland-version" ( = the "PLAY"-DVD-version) of "Washing of the Water" is the best version, You`re absolutely right.
On this version we also have the blonde singer Sam Brown from England doing backing vocals (Sam Brown - "Stop!" - her top-ten-hit in Germany and top-five-hit in the UK in 198. She also sang backing-vocals on the Pink-Floyd-album "Pulse", I think.
The "PG-Jools Holland"-performances so far:
1. "Father, Son"
2. "Downside Up" (feat. Liz Fraser and Paul Buchanan)
3. "Washing Of The Water" (feat. Sam Brown)
4. "Growing Up"

I have never seen this video too,thanks The Soil!
Yes,it is a funny video,Peter is very ironic,but my impression is that we see that there are 2 different worlds: the Artistic world of Peter in one side; and the world of TV,commercial,sometimes presumotuous on the other side.
Peter is fantastic,because he is himself,he answer with intelligence and irony,bravo!
In my opinion his past with Genesis was Art,unique and fantastic,yet today we are fashinated by that period,otherwise would not exist "The Musical Box-tribute band".(and many others in the world!)
I have seen The Musical Box in Italy and it was a succes!!People was crazy,enthusiastic and I saw someone cry. . . .
. . . . . . !!
p.s. Cimber,I think it was a sweet "C" :-]now it is clear,thanks!
Cimber11 June 2009 at 10:51pmPosts: 2570 (0 today)Status: offline
. . .sounding interesting there with the "Musical Box" - I had 2 times the chance to see them with 2 different shows ("The Lamb" and the 1973-one) - yeah and somehow missed both. I think it would have opened up my mind.
At least I got my own imagination and feelings :-]

It was a good experience to see the Musical Box (I have seen "Selling England B.The.P. - Show" and "Foxtrot Show- Black Show"),Cimber,they are very very good,but they are performers.
I want to tell you that there is not the magic and charisma,the fashinating that had just Peter,only him . . .nobody else in the world!!!
Gabriel's Art,his charisma,his magic can not be re-done,so the show of Musical Box are very nice,beautiful,but there is "an absence". . . .
There is not "something special and beautiful" that you can have only watching the movies of that time. . .
(I don't want to forget all the others members of Genesis,of course
I think that just listening to the Music you can always dream,no matter if you ( and me,and much people) have not seen the original Shows,the Music has a great power!
DolceVita15 June 2009 at 3:06pmPosts: 2321 (0 today)Status: offline
Oppsssss I'm sorry. :-]
The Black Show was for "Selling E.B. The Pound" Show,american tour of 1974.
The Soil15 June 2009 at 9:05pmPosts: 1894 (0 today)Status: offline
That was Sam Brown on backing vocals? Huh, I already wondered who it was, as I never watched the actual performance only listened to the audio. Thanks for the info.
Dolce Vita, you're welcome. I just love the way he smiled right after Jools showed him the old stuff. And I also find his jokes hilarious. 'It's like eating a lot, eventually something will come out.' LOL. Whenever I watch an interview with him there's so much to laugh. He's such a funny guy.
As for the Musical Box. Unfortunately I've never had a chance to see them when they were touring the Gabriel era stuff. They are now touring the Collins era stuff, aren't they?? I'm not very interested in the Collins era. Does any of you know if they'll ever tour the Lamb again??
DolceVita16 June 2009 at 1:39pmPosts: 2321 (0 today)Status: offline
Hi The Soil and thank you!
I know that The Musical Box will not do more tour of The Lamb,unfortunately.,but for more informations there is their official Website,ok?
I am not interested to Collins-era too :-],so I don't know what they are doing now,but I back to say that they are good performers and stop.
Peter Gabriel is in another Planet,another dimension. . . !!!

No more tours by the Musical Box ?. . .hmm.
A "visualized" Genesis-sound was always in my dreams and imaginations. Ever since I got access to the net and to the clips on youtube there`s a lot to discover.
I heard there is a lot of visual material also on the "Box-set" on DVD`s - would be interesting to watch these.
The Soil26 June 2009 at 3:14amPosts: 1894 (0 today)Status: offline
Yeah, I heard there is SOME visual material on the box set. But the only thing I really know of is that it has all the slides from the Lamb-slideshow on the DVD. But what else? I don't own the box set so I really don't know and I couldn't seem to find an answer on the internet either. Does it have any concert footage of the Lamb shows? As everyone I'd love to see some decent videos footage of the Lamb. So I wondered. But I'm not gonna buy the box set it it ONLY has the slides.
It really is unfortunate that the Musical Box will never tour the Lamb again. So I'm never gonna see any live performances of any of the songs. (except for the low quality footage on youtube) But well, you can't always get what you want.
