It's a movement of painting (and photography) that can be found in a certain "cosmic" aesthetic of the 60s and which finds a field of exploration in many experimental filmmakers (Jordan Belson, Kubrick) or in Terrence Malick's work (The Tree of Life).
The fascinating thing about sciences and scientists is ... they can be wrong, as they always have to deal with what's going on during a specific time / moment. And there's a difference between an assumption and evidence. We have learned a lot about this virus during the last 18 months. Measures taken are political decisions, which are hopefully based on scientific evidence. How effective some measures are can always be discussed, but it's pretty obvious that gathering in rooms does not help fight a pandemic. And this brings any health system down.
It's also quite obvious that the UK government is not the best example for a good crisis management.
Having said that, and coming back to topic with that, I am pretty shocked that the UK government will allow 60,000 people in a stadium for the EURO finale. The virus and its delta-variant now keeps spreading among younger people in the UK. My hope for Genesis shows this fall in the UK is pretty much gone.
Hi Christian. Yes, that’s a pity : they will be forced to postpone again the UK tour. For the american leg of the tour, there’s actually no specific problems.
awful cover. But let's wait for the music, that's more important anyway
After the horrible cover of Wolflight and The Night Siren - At the Edge of the light was quite beautiful - I am much more excited by this cover which refers to lyric abstraction.
I love it but it's simply too old, poorly produced, even by the standards of that time, particularly considering what bands like Yes were doing. Poorly arranged, some dodgy lyrics and the musicianship simply isn't there.
I doubt anybody listening to this album today for the first time could get into it. Still, when stripped down to the core: chords, harmony and melodies the songs are very good. The talent was obviously there, the originality undeniable and the overall atmosphere is pure magic.
The 2008 remaster and new mixes imrpoves the LP : It's almost another album and the balance between the different instruments finally does the musicians justice.
I don't envy you if you're coming from abroad, the hurdles the locals are likely to have to jump through are bad enough, you could end up getting stuck abroad if your country suddenly puts a block on travel.
Also you've got the political silliness between countries in Europe, and the game of one-upmanship going on between Scotland and England, which means Scottish requirements are likely to be more restrictive than elsewhere in the UK. I'd leave it late to book anything.
If the govt cop-out again on a decision about entry requirements to gigs, your entry is at the whim of the venue, who may not have a system in place to accept your paperwork, or require you to show an nhs app which you won't have. I envisage a lot of ticketholders are going to be left watching it on youtube.
If the Wembley euro requirements are the template, it would put me off bothering going to far away gigs, there's far too much to go wrong. At least you can get a beer though without having to look over 40 or produce a passport, like in the land of the free.
It needs to be put back to summer 2022 imo, there's too much uncertainty at this point in time to go ahead. Can't see the Genesis machine getting into gear with all this cross border uncertainty.
There were some figures out recently that 45.2% of the hospital deaths with the delta variant in a certain period, had had one or two jabs already, which if the trend continues puts us back to square one.
Thanks for your message.
I'm not that pessimistic.
The main problem for foreigners remains the 10-day quarantine on the spot...
I’m also fully vaccinated. I don't think that should be a problem on this side. I will also be at the Glasgow concert (Friday, October 8). Maybe we could meet there before?
I'm especially worried about the quarantine measures still in place for foreigners. I hope they will lift the restrictions, otherwise it will be difficult for me to come.
So, I’m waiting to see if I can get my plane tickets.
See you soon,
Yes, that's true....
It's such a boring song.
HOMH : ... no comment. I hate this song...
There will be no new album. Peter had a lots of new songs in attics, but he shows no interest in making an album. That's a pity...
Indeed. These shows didn’t happening this autumn. It could be very difficult to travel in UK until next year...
I don't think Peter would like to record another LP. He seems to not achieve (lyrics...) some song that he written so long ago. So an LP ? What a joke. Once again, Peter needs a new team and an agressive producer like Bob Ezrin if he wants to finish one of his different project.
I just read an interesting article:
There is not likely any 'big concerts' before 2022...
If the tour takes place, it will probably be in the spring of 2022 (not before). If not, we will be satisfied with professionally filmed rehearsals.
It's better than nothing!
It's quite an amazing album. A great accomplishment. Steve achieves something amazing with this album: not only does his classical guitar technique continue to improve, but the sound produced is breathtakingly accurate.
No indoor show for a while. April, yes... but in 2022.
In my opinion: no arena show before 2022... 😔
Following the last devloppement of the covid in England, I'm not sure that the tour can take place in April?
Does anyone know why Calling All Stations has been removed from spotify ?
That’s a strange decision...
