Peter Gabriel 3
One of Q Magazine's top 100 Greatest British Albums Produced by Steve Lillywhite, this album of May 1980 features Jerry Marotta and Phil Collins drumming, the guitar of Robert Fripp, David Rhodes, Paul Weller and XTC's Dave Gregory, with vocals from Peter and Kate Bush. The album produced the 1980 hit single "Games Without Frontiers", and the anthemic "Biko".
"Album 3 we did the sleeve with Storm again, Hypnosis and he introduced me to these things called, kerismographs? I think, but there was a photographer called Les Krims, who discovered that if you take a Polaroid and you squash it you can get the colours to run, and we used to go after them with different objects and sort of burnt matches and coins and fingers and all sorts of things and it was, it was a lot of fun 'cause you had to get the timing right, but you got some wonderful effects out of the distortions."
"The third album was the first time I had a chance to work with Kate Bush who was singing on Games Without Frontiers, and I heard Wuthering Heights that I really like I thought she had an extraordinary wonderful voice and was doing great thing as a writer and, you know, obviously went on to work with her again in the future on Don't Give Up."
"with Biko, which became a very important song for me, I'd not written an overtly political song before and later on, you know, I think it lead me towards some of the human rights stuff, which I'm still very much involved with today, so it was as much a thing that helped shape me as the other way round."
