Do you remember the old publication called Gabbleratchet (the official publication written by fans)? What this word means?

It is the name of one of the parts of Supper's Ready on Genesis' Foxtrot album.
I think the whole title is: "Apocalypse in 9/8 co-starring the glorious talents of Gabble Ratchet"
Fabulous. By the way, one of our loonies has that as his name here. Hello John if you're watching!

And wasn't it the name of Peter's first journal (in the 80ties, or did he already have it before?), where he tried to keep up contacts with his fans?
I still have one somewhere, only where, anyhow, I will check.
I remember, others also had one or more, wasn't it you, Jeremy?
A serious collector would love them!

Aehm, sorry, Danitaly, you mentioned it already, but to my knowledge, it was authorised by Pete!
The fans could attend, of course.

I know that fanzine. I won a copy in an old Tina's competition. :-]

I was in his fan club back then. I'm not sure if I have anything other than the live recording of Solsbury Hill on one of those 7" 'floppy" records. Back then in the late 70s we were known as 'Friends of Peter Gabriel" but it disappeared.
Mr. McPhail kindly explained the meaning of the word to some of us in Orvieto last year: i must say that the Wiki page is exceptionally accurate.
