Peter Gabriel 2
Peter's second solo album. Produced by Robert Fripp in the late spring of 1978. The record features Bruce Springsteen's keyboard player Roy Bittan: "He plays exactly what I would if I could play the piano as well as he could" (PG). Tony Levin and Larry Fast were carried over from the first album, and Jerry Marotta joined the band on Drums.
"The artwork was done again with Hypnosis but with Peter Kristoffersen. We did this in New York and again it was cold and snowy and Storm had had the idea of the nails tearing away at the paper of the image."
"We recorded the second album in Holland and Robert Fripp, who I was working with at the time, was very keen to try really speeding up my recording process as many people have been since and failed
"On the second album we started to get to know each other a lot more as musicians and Tony Levin, Larry Fast and Robert Fripp were the only people from the first album that were sort of carried over into the second album."
"There was less people in the studio and we started in this sort of isolated environment of the Dutch studio to interact in a different way, and I think some of the band chemistry began to form."
"Tony Levin also introduced me to Jerry Marotta who played a big part in the early records as did Larry Fast too with all the textures he was providing, with his synthesizers, so I think that touring band started really evolving and getting it's own style."
"The tour for this record was one in which we were all dressed in sort of road workers fluorescents. This was, I think, in the early days of punk and we used to do a sort of punk version of Whiter Shade of Pale, which is probably safely eroded in the mists of time, and a version of Me and My Teddy Bear which I think was the first song that I performed as a kid and was one of the few songs that I could remember the words to."
