Description

Genesis released their first single 50 years ago! 50 years! So to celebrate Simon made his friend Gary listen to all the Genesis albums in order and then review them in the local pub, commonly known as The Revelation Station. What will Gary think? Will they stay friends? Is the beer here any good? The answer to these questions will probably be revealed.

And so it ends…not with a bang. But a podcast…

Okay so I lied, we’ve got one more episode to spoil you with. 2 years ago we started this podcast with a listen to From Genesis To Revelations. 24 months and 31 episodes later we come to an end.

In this very special episode, find out what it’s meant to us to produce this show. We answer listener questions and discuss the future & past. Which songs are our least and most favourite? Why did Gary agree to get involved when he didn’t really know Genesis or listen to podcasts? Which band would Simon like to cover next? What’s Gary’s dog called? What’s Simon's favourite colour?

Find out the answers to these and many more questions today. And if you’re some sort of masochist, you could watch an unedited version of the conversation on the You Tubes right here.

To everyone who has listened to the show to this point, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We will be back soon with more fun and music.

It's the end, but the moment has been prepared for...
01:40:14

In the space year 2000, Genesis were a spent force. With the relative disappointment of the Calling All Stations tour 2 years behind them, there seemed to be only re-issues and greatest hits packages in the future. Enter Archive #2, a three disc collection of B’sides and live tracks culled from the period 1976-1992 (ignoring the Ray Wilson years completely), presented as a follow up to the Gabriel-era Archive of 2 years before.

There are some real gems included on this compilation, from unreleased Hackett-era live tracks to 1980’s B’sides, there is something for all fans and it brings together rare tracks in one place for the first time. I mean…really there’s not much else I can say about it. You should listen to the podcast.

BUT! Gary has been lost forever, seemingly into Hell, and Simon is trying to move on with his life. Enter a mysterious professor and his newest invention. Can Simon continue the podcast alone? Will he find a willing victim…er…co-host, to help him spread the word? Or will he bring about the end of all things in an insane attempt to rescue his friend…er…acquaintance.

You choose not to see it...
01:45:46

In 1996 after a whopping 25 years with the band, Phil Collins decided to call it quits and leave. And that was the end of Genesis…

Not really! Undeterred, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford pressed on. They wrote an albums worth of material at The Farm in January 1996 and in the meantime began a lenghty audition process. Many popular names were thrown into the ring such as Fish, Francis Dunnery and Mick Strickland. Finally, in a tense, X-Factor-like finish, the field was narrowed to two. Dave Longdon and Ray Wilson. And if you don’t know already who won the gig well…this will be a lovely surprise for you.

Sadly, this incarnation of the band was not to last. A cancelled North American tour and poor record sales meant that Tony and Mike elected not to carry on, and in 1998, after just one album Genesis was no more. Until the 2007 reunion tour that is! But that’s a whole other story.

Back in the present day, Gary has roped Simon into a shopping trip. But something isn’t right, and their refusal to accept the events of the last episode may have dire consequences. It may be the end of Genesis but it might also be the end of the world! Find out the secret history of Dave the zombie, meet our local Conservative candidate, gasp at the poor accents on display, scream at the unworldy beings dragged from another world, and I’m not talking about Gary OR Simon!

Who lives? Who dies? Who tells your story? Find out in this super-sized episode, all about the 15th and final Genesis album.

Another chance hello, another goodbye.
01:33:29

Invisible Touch was 5 years before, so the casual observer would be forgiven for thinking that Genesis were no more. But in October/November 1991 they unleashed the 70-minute epic We Can’t Dance, their first album geared to the increasingly popular CD format. Featuring a chart busting 6 singles, the album went on to be thier 5th UK number 1 and sold 4 million copies in the USA alone, it also led to a highly succesful world tour which took in the sunny climes of Texas, Paris, Belin and Wolverhampton,

Phil was responsible for a lot of the lyrics on the album, which is why it is very much in the vein of his 1989 album “But Seriously…” covering such topics as domestic violence, televangelism, the plight of the Kurdish people and drink driving, it sets a much more serious tone for the most part (Jesus He Knows Me not included obvs). It was written at the Farm studio and came from jam sessions, as the last 2 albums had been. Sadly (or not depending on if you think Phil ruiend Genesis), it was the end for Phil, who departed in 1996 to focus on his solo career.

But forget all that nonsense, what you really need to know is that something is amiss at The Revelation Station pub, something that Simon and Gary need to sort out before business goes down the pan. What’s the prob Bob? How will they solve it? Just how many tracks will Simon and Gary agree on this time? Is Gary really a heartless, emotionless shell of a man?

A hundred crazy voices call my name
01:27:17

In an alternative reality, Genesis split up in 1985. Their biggest hit, Mama, defined the memory of them for 12 years until they reformed in 2007 with Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett to tour “The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway” in a cross-promotion with the big budget Hollywood movie.
If only…
Luckily for us, Genesis didn’t split in 1985, despite the BBC announcing it. No, instead they reformed back at The Farm and recorded what is both their most successful album and their least popular, depending on who you ask. Released in June 1986, it saw the group finally achieving the pop success that they had been craving since their formation all those years ago (18) at Charterhouse. Bolstered by 5 top 5 US singles, it remained in the charts for a staggering 85 weeks and has achieved sales of 6 million so far to date. That, as they say, is a spicy meatball.
The album features some very diverse topics, from protest songs to break up songs to songs about drugs and double-glazing (I guess, I didn’t really pay much attention). It divided fans and critics, with some deriding the electronic instrumentation and pop sensibilities, and others thinking that maybe some people should just chill out and enjoy it for what it is, I mean it’s only music there’s no need to get so uptight. Amiright?

In this episode Simon hopes to get home, but Gary has other plans. He’s got one last errand to run before they can finally head back to the pub. Does Gary like the slow songs? Which song does Simon admit to not liking? Will they ever get back home? Can you spot the error Simon makes in the album overview segment (he corrects himself later, it’s ok)?

Find out everything you’ve ever needed to know about Invisible Touch and be amazed by the surprise special guests, in this episode! Oh, and before I forget - go here for some decent Genesis artwork.

Not this confused again...
01:39:25

Is it called “Shapes”? Is it called “Mama”? No, it’s called “Genesis” and it was released on October 3rd 1983, a mere 10 years after “Selling England By The Pound” if you can believe it!
The album marked a distinct change in sound for the band, which many fans loved (and equally as many hated) but despite that it proved to be a huge success, selling over 4 million copies to hit no.1 in the UK and no.9 in the USA. But it was the single “Mama” that proved to really break the album, with the single reaching no.4 in the UK to be their most successful single to date.
Written and recorded at The Farm, it was the first to be entirely created from jam sessions, hence the collective title for the album “Genesis”. It was an attempt to get back to the pop sound that had been the original intention of those Carthusians all those years before…actually only 15 years before. Crikey! They certainly worked hard didn’t they? 12 albums in 15 years? WHAT HAPPENED PETER?

But in the 21st Century, fresh off the massive success of their live set at Wembley, Gary and Simon are attempting to raise the profile of the pub. Gary has some sort of scheme going on which involves a well-known BBC TV show. What do the boys think of the album? How many different vegetables can Gary name? Does anyone want to buy a Llama? And, perhaps most importantly, is “Illegal Alien” racist?

Find out the answers to all of these questions and so, so much more in this all new episode.

The sounds that echoed all around me
01:32:47

Simon and Gary try their hands at something a bit different.

This is a commentary track for the 3 Sides Live Blu Ray, it isn't a normal episode and won't make sense if you just listen to it as you normally would.

Your side. My side. The truth.
00:43:14

1982 was a quiet year for the boys in the band. Not. Although there was no studio album released, they put out the 3x3 EP and embarked on an extensive tour culminating in a reunion in Milton Keynes. Phil released an album which built on the success of Face Value. Mike released an album which is largely best forgotten. Tony recorded an album which wasn’t released until 1983.

And they released their third live album “Three Sides Live”, featuring live recordings from the Duke and Abacab tours for the most part. The international release was an unusual hybrid of live tracks and studio tracks, including the unreleased in the US 3x3 EP. The UK version was an unusual hybrid of live track and...some more live tracks.

Back in London, Gary and Simon have made it to Wembley for their live gig. Will they get in? What happens when Gary decides to crowdsurf? Who has the weirdest rider request and will the boys learn a new fact about fireworks? Find out the answers to all these questions and more in this exciting episode.

My hopes are as the leaves upon the water...
00:30:24

In May 1982 Genesis released their second EP, 3x3, onto an unsuspecting world. Made up of leftovers from the Abacab sessions it proved to be a modest hit in the UK charts, just like their first EP.
Lead track “Paperlate“ managed to be an homage to both 70’s and 80’s Genesis whilst the other two tracks were also on the EP.

But meanwhile, with the future of the Pub assured, Gary and Simon continue their London adventure with a nice relaxing trip on a bus to their next appointment. It seems Simon has meticulously planned the journey BUT what will happen when things go awry? Get ready for rush hour…

The buck stops here, and it's not the one you're looking for...
01:18:15

Down on The Farm, something is afoot! It’s Genesis and they’re working on their 11th studio album “Abacab”, named after a random sequence of musical bits and pieces. Recorded in May and June, before being released on 18th September 1981, Abacab marks a huge change of sound for the band. No longer truly “prog”, and featuring predominantly tracks jammed in the studio, the album utterly divided fans and even led to the band being boo-ed on tour.
Undoubtedly influenced by the runaway success of Phils’ “Face Value”, it also in a way saw the band returning to their roots, with shorter, poppier tracks and outside musicians used for the first time since their debut. It sets out the blueprint that Genesis will pursue for the rest of their Phill Collins era, and ultimately lead to their most successful phase.

Back in the future, Gary and Simon have arrived in London and have a very important date to keep. It’s a race across the city with the fate of the podcast at stake! Will they make it? Which track is Gary’s favourite? Will Simon surprise Gary with a shocking revelation? Do they (ahem) like it or not? Will the pub be saved? All these questions will be answered.

Apr 12, 2019
This is the time you've waited for...
01:42:06

1979 was not a great year for Phil Collins. However, the breakdown of his marriage lead to a huge burst of creativity and ultimately brought us his classic first solo album “Face Value”. Similarly, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford recorded and released their first solo efforts.
This podcast is not, however, about those albums. Instead we have a listen to the tenth studio album, and the second recorded by the most famous and successful line up. Duke was released on 24th March 1980 and was their very first number 1 album in the UK!
The album saw a return to longer songs following And Then There Were Three’s dalliance with shorter tracks. It also contains what could be considered the first proper Genesis “Pop” song, which went on to become the 7th biggest single of 1980 in Canada!

In this bumper edition of The Revelation Station, the boys get embroiled in a mystery on their way to an important date and decide to while away the time by turning an ear to Gary’s first experience of Genesis’ music. Does it hold up after so long? Is it a royal success or a big pile of dookie? Can Simon accurately predict which songs Gary will hate? Just whodunnit? The answers to all these questions will be revealed…

Featuring guest stars:
Tea Lady: Kay MrsGary
Hercule Poirot: Richmond Leishi

Stand up to the blow that fate has struck upon you...
01:32:24

Released on 31st March 1978, Genesis’ ninth studio album featured a streamlined sound and line up. Steve Hackett had departed the group in mid 1977, dissatisfied with the band dynamic, leaving the core trio of Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford that would exist for a good 15 years and go on to huge international success.

It all starts here folks. Hated by some, loved by others the album featured their biggest hit to date in Follow You, Follow Me, a sign of things to come. Also notable for the inclusion of shorter songs, in an attempt to cram in more ideas. This is only one of three albums they ever released that has no long songs.

Returning back from winter break with an appropriately themed album, Gary and Simon find themselves caught between a rock and a dart place as they try to bring more business to the pub. Despite this they find time to discuss the merits of …And Then There Were Three… and spend an inordinate amount of time singing in this episode.

What do they think of the album? Is it a bullseye or a double one? Which of the two single releases do they prefer? Which one of the pair clearly misses Steve but refuses to admit it? And what cover version should you definitely definitely avoid at all costs? The answers to all this and more can be found right here in a bumper length episode of The Revelation Station podcast.

No business like show business.
00:48:33

For their second (geddit?) release of 1977, Genesis unleashed their second (geddit) live album, Seconds Out. Recorded mostly at the Palais de Sport in Paris between 11th and 14th June 1977 (with The Cinema Show recorded at the same venue on 23rd June 1976), this double live set is widely regarded as one of “the best live albums ever, by Genesis fans at least, and was released to critical acclaim.

The album would be released in October 1977, by which time Steve Hackett had already departed the group for solo pastures, and in fact the remaining trio would have recorded their next release, more of that next time. Another chapter of the book of Genesis closed and a new era would begin in 1978.

Right here, right now, Gary and Simon discuss the album in a most appropriate setting. Do they agree with the fan consensus about the album’s greatness? Does Gary learn to love Suppers Ready? What do they think of Phil covering Peter? All this and more can be found in this episode.

Are you enjoying the podcast? Do you love that scamp Gary? Annoyed by Simon constantly getting things wrong? Write to us and tell us at our email address revelationstationpodcast@gmail.com.

Super slicks and has-beens
00:36:21

1977 was an important year for Genesis. They had released their first two albums with Phil Collins the year before and were rapidly becoming one of the biggest live acts on the planet.

No new album was released this year, but instead an EP of unused tracks from the Wind & Wuthering sessions was released on 20th May, and the double live album Seconds Out would emerge in October. Sadly, Steve Hackett wouldn’t see out the year as guitarist with the band, leaving this EP of three songs as his parting shot.

In the right now, Gary and Simon muse over the merits of the EP whilst completing a favour for a friend. What do they think of the songs herein? Is it a worthy final tribute to Steve? Should any of these been on Wind & Wuthering? Or should 50 tonnes of it be dumped on the Foreign Office Roof? Find out the answers to all these questions and more in this special episode.

The grime on the Tyne is mine, all mine, all mine.
01:07:02

In 1976 Phil Collins is the singer in Genesis and they release their brand new album, A Trick of the…hang on, wait a minute! They released another album in 1976? Does Peter Gabriel know about this?

So….released as an early Christmas present, their second album of 1976 arrived on December 17th. Their 8th overall, it firmly cemented Phil Collins as the lead singer and featured classics that would become staples of the live set for many years to come.

However, as was not happy in the Genesis camp, and Steve Hackett was counting out time before he left, frustrated that his songwriting efforts were being side-lined *cough* AllInAMouse’sNight *cough*, he made the decision to leave the band in mid-1977.

In this episode! Gary and Simon find themselves in a salty situation, but use the time to discuss the second chapter in the “Phil Ruins Genesis” story (Spoiler: Phil doesn’t ruin Genesis, don’t be ridiculous). Do they enjoy the album? Which song makes it into Simon’s “Top 500” tracks list? How exactly does one eat a juicy raw rat? All these answers and more can be found in this episode!

Midweek Hackett Madness!
00:22:07

On October 1st 2018, Steve Hackett began his Genesis Revisited with Band and Orchestra tour in Nottingham.

Here are the thoughts of two fools who went to see that show. Recorded live, respectively, on a Tram; in a branch of Starbucks and in Simon's car. The sound quality is variable in places and topics of discussion include: Coffee, Trams, Vodka and what Steve might get up to on his visit to Nottingham.

NOTE: May contain some swears!

You lucky things! A new episode to follow on Friday! Woo-hoo!

Unexpected item in the bagging area
00:15:09

Greetings! Due to real life the next episode has been delayed, so in the meantime please enjoy this minisode. It features a conversation cut from the A Trick Of The Tail episode and some outtakes. The music used is called "Prodigy", I found it on the internet in about 2005 so I have no idea who it's by. If it's by you, or you know who it is by, drop me an email and I'll give a credit.

Got anything you want to share with us? Stories or opinions on upcoming albums, or how you got into the band in the first place? Love us? Hate us? All feedback is welcome, just send it to revelationstationpodcast@gmail.com or leave a comment below.

Enter the drummer.
01:15:16

In 1975 Peter Gabriel quit Genesis just as they were about to hit the big time! Or, pay off some debts at least. He retired to his vegetable patch and, eventually, on to a successful solo career. But his involvement in the Genesis story was over for the most part. Which leaves the group without a singer...

Enter Phil, reluctantly at first, but with increasing confidence he takes on the mantle of front man and wins over literally everybody ever (note: maybe not everybody). After sifting through hundreds of demo tapes, the band finally settle on Phil and get down to recording their breakthrough album, A Trick Of The Tail. Released on 13th February 1976 to critical and commercial success, the album and subsequent tour raised the band's profile in the USA which ultimately led to the sell out tours of later years.

Back in the present day, Simon is taking Gary to get his casts removed and they decide to fill the hours waiting with a discussion about this seminal album. Do the boys take to Phil as lead vocalist? Is everything the band do from now on rubbish? What is the connection to Russ Abbot? Which classic does Gary hate this time? All this, and maybe more, is answered in this episode, featuring a surprise appearance from a popular comedian.

Aug 24, 2018
The History Makers
01:02:32

In 1998, barely a year after the band released their last studio album, the classic 5 man line up reunited to compile 4CDs of largely unreleased tracks. Covering the years 1967-1975 (although the tracks are placed in roughly reverse order) this gem contains the only official live recording of the whole of The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway (bar "IT" due to a lazy tape op), and demos of the band from before they were even tied to a record deal.

Returning to the pub a broken man, literally, Gary does his best to find some joy within these tracks. Will he agree that Supper's Ready is a masterpiece? Will Simon be able to convince him it's worth the purchase? Will either of them get beaten up by the barman? Find out the answer to all these questions and more in this special episode.

Got anything you want to share with us? Stories about upcoming albums? How you got into Genesis in the first place? Even feedback about the episodes, anything is welcome. Send it to revelationstationpodcast@gmail.com.

Look out for the next episode coming soon, in which we turn our attention back to the regular releases with A Trick Of The Tail.

Extra! Extra! Unknown band scores documentary!
00:21:47

In 1970 the BBC commissioned a documentary on the artist Michael Jackson, no not that one, and asked everyone's favourite, teenage, unknown, prog band to come up with the music. Lost until 2007, where they were part of that years 1970-1975 box set, these 4 tracks are an interesting look at a developing sound.

SO! What does Gary think to having his holiday interrupted by Simon to talk about the history of these 4 tracks? Will he tell him to beat it? Does he think the tracks are bad, enough to make him scream? Or does he like the way they make him feel? Will Simon be able to live with himself everytime he looks at the man in the mirror? Errrm...some sort of pun involving Earth Song. You get the picture.

This is the second of two minisodes, look out for a full length episode coming soon. In the meantime you can send us feedback to revelationstationpodcast@gmail.com

Good morning Rael, so sorry you had to wait...
01:23:49

In this engorged episode, Simon and Gary finish up their discussion of the Lamb. They chat about what might have happened if Peter had stayed in the group, and almost, almost, come to blows (again) about the classic nature of the whole thing.

Will the boys find a way out of the weird place they are in and back to the pub in time for last orders? Find out in this episode.

It lies with me, cries the Queen of maybe...
01:03:16

Released on 13th October 1973, just days after Simon’s first birthday, Selling England By The Pound is the 5th Album by Genesis. It becomes their best seller to date, reaching number 3 in the UK charts on the back of hit single “I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)”. Betty Swanwick delivers a decent cover, Steve delivers several guitar riffs and Peter just can’t seem to locate his country.

In this episode Gary decides he can multi-task and drags Simon around the local supermarket to discuss the album in an appropriate setting. In a quest for table jellies they encounter west-end hoodlums, the spirit of Britain and love in the 1970’s. What do they think of the album? Will Tess finally co-operate? Find out in this episode.
