Heya, Carmichael!

Happy the Man is a sure bet.....

You don't get that they were widely ridiculed, or you don't get their name? I think I first heard of them on a Southern California prog radio show...or maybe in Trouser Press at the time. I've always assumed the allusion to Gabriel (i.e., Peter) was deliberate.
Avatar Tue. 10/24/17 1:56pm Tony Coulter:

Don't get why their name seemed so ridiculous to people. I guess the image of the angel Gabriel in bondage was considered risible.

Barclay James Harvest were accused of sounding like a "poor man's Moody Blues." In response, John Lees wrote a tune, "Poor Man's Moody Blues." So there.

Everybody wanted to sound like Genesis, etc., including a bunch of Italian bands, and then everybody wanted to sound like those Italian bands.

I sense that Genesis wanted to sound, roughly, like Anglo church music. Hence Beyond an Empty Dream (Songs for a Modern Church), including Charterhouse Chorale Society's lovely anthem, Take This Heart. The boys attended Charterhouse.

styx means gag worthy, in some obscure language.

glenn, i've tried to like genesis. i have most of their albums. (well, not beyond abacab - if i need to say that!)
...and i do like them, but -just. i'm never compelled to put on some genesis, with the one exception (strangely?) of an instrumental track from the post-Gabriel wind & wuthering.
Avatar Tue. 10/24/17 2:24pm Tony Coulter:

Brimstone was unusual because they sound like early Yes.
Avatar    Tue. 10/24/17 2:25pm Nick S.:

More like Yes without the religious Howe guitar lines!

@ fish: lots of Hackett writing on that side, especially 'Blood On The Rooftops'
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/24/17 2:31pm coelacanth∅:

was Hacket the more prominent earlier writer, besides Gabriel?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/24/17 2:33pm Carmichael:

This sounds a LOT like early Yes.

Been really enjoying this show! (this type of stuff would not be my cuppa joe back when it came out, more hippie dippie stuff, but fun to hear now).

Used to spin Selling England by the Pound once or twice daily. Haven't listened much at all in recent years, though I do enjoy the old bootlegs.

Liked that Archangel, started off like holy minimalism.
Avatar Tue. 10/24/17 2:37pm Tony Coulter:

The guy behind Archangel was Calvin Hampton, who wrote some very interesting experimental music. He's on this record, for example: www.discogs.com...
Avatar    Tue. 10/24/17 2:40pm V Priceless:

@ fish - I think, generally speaking, Hackett's departure from Genesis had a greater impact on their musicality than Gabriel's, in all due respect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/24/17 2:42pm coelacanth∅:

they did dive into a sea of slugslime after that, didn't they.
  Tue. 10/24/17 2:44pm Dean:

Agreed, @VP. Gabriel's was a loss of, pardon the pun, charisma that Collins couldn't replace, much as he tried. Alas, the only time I saw them live was the first post-Gabriel tour, one upside of which was Bruford. Buddy of mine saw the '75 show at the Shrine in LA, i.e., he attended, but slept through most of it.
Avatar Tue. 10/24/17 2:45pm glenn:

slugslime. fish for the win.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/24/17 2:46pm coelacanth∅:

...and - as i remember -a trick of the tail is right along the lines of lamb lies down on broadway.
wind and wuthering is different than all of them, maybe. (or do i just think that because i heard that one first, oblivious to the 7 albums prior?)
  Tue. 10/24/17 2:47pm Dean:

They also did that EP featuring the song "Pigeons," which begins, "Who put fifty tons of shit on the Foreign Office roof?"

I hear TOTT as a fairly radical deviation from LLDOB. WAW is of a piece with TOTT to my ears. YMMV.
Avatar Tue. 10/24/17 2:49pm glenn:

at least they didn't blame the canada geese.
Avatar    Tue. 10/24/17 2:50pm V Priceless:

@ Dean: pun pardoned, but Second's Out tour w/BB? Nice! Gabriel's voice is missed, that's for sure - he had that certain rough earthiness that Phil couldn't replicate.

Yes, 'slugslime' ftw!

Hackett continues to create some inspired music...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/24/17 2:51pm coelacanth∅:

hmm, okay. i figured i'd give all those records another spin sometime if i live another 10 years. maybe i'll make it sooner.
YMMV??

  Tue. 10/24/17 2:54pm Dean:

Your mileage may vary, @coelacanth∅. I hear what I hear due, particularly in the case of Genesis, to expectations at the time.

July 9, 1978, Washington Post, an article about colored vinyl noting that Gabriel Bondage's second album sold at least 30K copies, due in part to its three editions: one red, one white, one blue vinyl.
