About The Lamb movie, he actually didn't mention that as far as I know. In an interview for argentinian TV he said he wouldn't be interested in doing a whole tour with Genesis but he would join maybe for doing something for a film or something like that, I can't remember the exact words. At least what I understood when watching the interview was that he would like to do one song or a couple of songs with the band for a particular project like for a movie, like he did with the Wall-E song, cos he was talking about that a few minutes earlier. I don't know why everybody started talking about The Lamb movie and got so exited about that, maybe I was the one who got it wrong but I don't think that's what he meant at all. I think the interview is on youtube, maybe we should listen to it again.

Oops sorry, now I see the link was posted in one of the last posts. It isn't very clear what he meant, but he didn't mention the lamb.

I got something to add. I missed the sound of the Yamaha CP-70 piano on Up. I wish he would use it again for the songs of the new album. Then again, he was never one to go backwards. But that piano had a really big part in making his songs sound so very unusual.

It's not that the songs on Up DON'T sound unusual. It's just that I started to love the CP-70 sound because of him and now I miss it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Anyone agree?

. . .Fairlight, Yamaha CP-70 piano whatever - they were somehow replaced by string-arrangements on Peter`s last releases ("Ovo", "Up", "Long Walk Home") - yeah, of course this sound you mention is missing.
Cimber29 May 2009 at 12:26amPosts: 2570 (0 today)Status: offline
. . .but I also LIKE Peter`s string-arrangements.
Just think of "Signal To Noise" - the end-section !
- "Running To The Rain" (from "Long Walk Home")
. . .I LOVE this one !

Yeah he said that Up was completely written on the guitar (or something like that) as opposed to his earlier works. You can really hear that difference.
The Fairlight? Wasn't it really just a sampling-computer? So did it have any unique special sound of its own? I don't know. (Anyone who knows don't hesitate to tell me) But the CP70 definately had.
And yeah, of cause I don't think that Up is a bad album. And the string arrangements you mentioned are really nice.
But well, he was always one to go straight forward, always renewing his sound. Always different. So I don't know if he'll ever use those old instruments again. But that's his decision. I'm very curious of what is still to come. His always reinventing himself keeps him from getting boring. Other musicians make albums that sound the same for years and years. So well, PG we're still looking forward to the release of I/O!

yes, then a POV dvd or a box set including it. followed by encore CDs from the north american tour (sorry my fellow lunatics, but i think we are next in line), and finally I/O.

Anything from Peter would be wonderful but I love the list Mozo. Have I got time to save up to see him in North America do you think? That would combine two wishes.
I wonder if there would ever be a farewell concert, wouldn't it just peter out? Sorry! I remember some years ago his saying he didn't want to be touring endlessly, he wanted to do other things. Well he certainly does other things . . .

He has probably nearly finished "Scratch My Back".
I think someone mentioned it is due out in the spring.
Yes PG is a busy chap!
