Alt - CD Edition - Van Der Graaf Generator

Alt - CD Edition
THE NEW PROJECT FROM VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR

AN ALTERNATIVE ALBUM REFLECTING ANOTHER SIDE OF ONE OF PROGRESSIVE ROCK’S MOST ENDURING AND CREATIVE ARTISTS


Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the latest release on their front-line label, ESOTERIC ANTENNA, dedicated to new releases by both new acts and established artists. ‘ALT’ is a new studio project by the legendary VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR and follows on from the release of "A GROUNDING IN NUMBERS” in 2011.   "ALT” is no ordinary Van Der Graaf Generator album (if the term "ordinary” could ever be applied to this visionary group). PETER HAMMILL explains; "Instrumental Improvs & Experiments - Most of the music on "ALT” was made while we weren't really looking, or perhaps only while the left side of our collective brain was engaged. The album is a mixture of improvisations recorded at sound checks and in the studio and more considered sonic creations which often verge on Musique Concrete. The fourteen pieces here offer a fascinating glimpse into an alternative Van der Graaf Generator sound world. Perhaps the closest comparison would be with the second CD of "Present", but even the link with those recordings is tenuous. Even by Van der Graaf Generator standards, this stuff's at the wacky end of the scale!”   This instrumental album is another side of Van Der Graaf Generator, a truly unique listening experience.

Press:-

"Alt is, according to Hammill, a collection of instrumental improvisations recorded "while we weren't really looking or while the left side of our collective brain was engaged".

These pieces have a good deal of merit, even if they're lacking any sort context or concept  - the crashing percussion of tracks like Midnite Or So, buffeted by jazzy runs of electric keyboard, are reminiscent of the wilder experimentalism of Faust." (7/10*)

A Curious Feeling (CD ONLY)
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS THE SINGLE CD VERSION OF 'A CURIOUS FEELING' THE DVD PACKAGE IS NOW SOLD OUT.

Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of 30th Anniversary editions of the album “A Curious Feeling” by Genesis founder member and keyboard player Tony Banks on Monday October 19th 2009. This classic album, inspired by the novel “Flowers for Algernon” by Daniel Keyes, was first released in October 1979 by Charisma Records. Recorded at Polar Studios in Stockholm, whilst Genesis were on a brief hiatus following the “And Then There Were Three” tour, this majestic work featured contributions from drummer Chester Thompson (a member of GENESIS for concert appearances) and vocalist Kim Beacon. Stylistically the album is equal to anything Banks composed for Genesis and includes the evocative instrumental “The Waters of Lethe” and the song “For a While” (released as a single in 1979 and issued as a Download single via iTunes on October 19th) among its highlights. Significantly, this new edition of “A Curious Feeling” has been remixed from the original master tapes by Nick Davis (who also remixed the entire Genesis catalogue in 2007) and Tony Banks, resulting in a more dynamic sounding album. In addition, a new 5.1 Surround Sound mix was prepared which was included on a Limited 2 Disc Deluxe Edition of “A Curious Feeling”, along with the rare promotional videos of “For a While” and “The Waters of Lethe” made in 1979, this is now unavailable. A top thirty hit album upon its release, these editions of “A Curious Feeling” are the definitive statements on this classic album.
