TOPIC: Genesis
#204839
Genesis 1 Month, 2 Weeks ago  
Someone sent me a Genesis book; not bad but riddled with mistakes. I suppose this is how history evolves. Example; the writer describes at length Denmark Street, where Regent Sound Studio was based, and the recording of the album From Genesis To Revelation there. Great atmosphere and description BUT - the album was not recorded there but in the newly opened second Regent Sound studio off Charing Cross road, miles away.

Likewise the description of how Tony Stratton Smith got involved. I had, at his request, produced a group of his called The Koobas for him. He was a friend - a football journalist on the Daily Sketch. He used the office of B&C Records in our building - 37 Soho Square. When I decided I couldn't look after the young band any longer I asked him to manage them. It took a lot of persuading - public school kids didn't make pop music back then.

I remember every detail of the several lunches we had. I told him I felt he was honest and honourable and I didn't want these teenagers ripped off. Eventually he agreed to go and see them and sign them up.

A totally different story in the book.

God knows how the future history will record it with social media carrying even more fake news!

Genesis are on my favourite bands. Would you be writing a book JK about the band from the beginning to the present ?

No GM I was only involved in discovering them, naming them, producing them and starting them off. As with many things I get bored after kick starting something. All the money making stuff bores me to tears! That's why I handed them over to TSS.

Still interesting that a bubblegum singer discovered a band that took prog to the next level and the Phil Collins solo era in the 80's dominated the charts - even the 90's Genesis is fun to listen to.

We all watched and remember this iconic episode and scene from Miami Vice. It very popular TV show Wyot, each episode was like the last but with different music and guest stars.
