Disappointing The Nuance Girl Scout Hammer-Von, I am,  just posting a video.  But this is all I can muster today.

Gabriel, wash your hair dude.

    Stealing this, both the music and the bleggalweariness app.

    29:29=WooHoo!

    Who knew Peter Gabriel was so crush-worthy?!?!

  3. Roaming BG says:

    Gabriel, wash your hair dude.

    Pshaw! I loved his hair and sideburns!!

  4. Roaming BG says:

    Let me clarify (not that this is of interest to you)…

    Peter Gabriel has always been crush-worthy from a deep, talented, poetic, creative place. But, I never knew he was crush-worthy from the shallowest of shallow places!! lol

    And to think they thought they had to change their music so that they could attract more than just stoned guys to come and watch them play…

  5. Roaming BG says:

    Phil looked exactly the same. BTW, I think yesterday was Phil’s birthday.

  6. Peter Gabriel has always been crush-worthy

    LOOK AT THOSE TEETH!! Jeez, the Brits have always been known for lousy dental care, but Peter Gabriel is Total Snaggletooth!

    Plus, he’s a dress-wearing furry. Makes Laura’s fetishes look positively NORMAL.

  7. And to think they thought they had to change their music so that they could attract more than just stoned guys to come and watch them play…

    LOL!

    My gawd… so young! They’re mere babies. Of course, I was even more of a baby back then.

  8. They were babies, Jennifer. They recorded their first album before they were out of Charterhouse, so a couple of them weren’t even 18 yet. That video was recorded after their third album (second, if you discount the first one as I do because it was not very well realized, and mainly a product of the producer who wanted them to be a bubblegum pop band) and they would have been about 21 in that video. Philbot was 20.

    None of them have ever had a real job.

    I love how Steve Hackett sits down to make his guitar squawk and creates a hellish racket. And Tony Banks with his twelve string.

    Of course, if BG continues with the Gabriel-crushing, I will merely go back to talking about how terrible Scratch My Back is.

  9. LOL, back in those days, Peter Gabriel had to wear an old man mask for the end of The Musical Box.

    These days, Not so much.

    Heh.

  10. Roaming BG says:

    My gawd… so young!

    I know!! I HAD to show The Skimmer my new crush, and he said, “God, aging sucks.” Which is pretty much his answer to most things these days when it’s not, “They’re F-ing idiot sociopaths” when discussing Republicans.

  11. Brando says:

    LOOK AT THOSE TEETH!! Jeez, the Brits have always been known for lousy dental care, but Peter Gabriel is Total Snaggletooth!

    Yeah, when he was playing the flute, I figured he probably had a bad case of locomotive breath.

  12. Roaming BG says:

    I love all your background knowledge, ZRM! What year was this music?

  13. Roaming BG says:

    And Tony Banks with his twelve string.

    Von would never play one of those. Too many strings.

  14. IT’S NOT BACKGROUND.

    It is VITAL KNOWLEDGE. If you want to UNDERSTAND.

    Now get offa my lawn, I’ve got this Musical Box to play…

  15. Roaming BG says:

    LOOK AT THOSE TEETH!!

    …he probably had a bad case of locomotive breath.

    Boy, boys, boys!! Stop ruining my fantasy!!

  16. Roaming BG says:

    What year was that, ZRM? I want to know how young I was so I can picture all of us in the world together at the same time—and have the right perspective.

    It’s a game I play!

  17. Roaming BG says:

    It is VITAL KNOWLEDGE. If you want to UNDERSTAND.

    Totally.

  18. Roaming BG says:

    Ok, I figured it out on my own! I was 7-ish. Too much Munsters and Brady Bunch then to know where the really cool things were going on!

  19. It’s a game I play!

    Oh, I’ve had quite enough of games lately.

  20. Roaming BG says:

    Are you upset, ZRM? I’m getting weird vibes.

  21. No more than usual, BG, and it’s nothing you did…THIS time.

  22. …The Skimmer my new crush, and he said, “God, aging sucks.”

    The convertible is not too far off in the future, then.

  23. Brando says:

    I apologize for cocking up an otherwise tender Genesis moment with a bad pun. Please return to your regularly scheduled swooning.

    I can’t get over how young Mike Rutherford looks. Tony Banks and Phil Collins just look like younger versions of themselves, and to a certain extent Gabriel does too. Rutherford looks like he isn’t old enough to drive. And then there’s Hackett, who looks like he plays guitar while living in a van down by the river.

  24. Don’t worry, Brando, the way things are going, the Rush moments are not too far away.

  25. Brando it always kills me how unorthodox their stage arrangement was. Seems that when they were woodshedding for the first REAL album (Trespass), they set up facing each other so they could see and hear each other. They never really thought about how to set up for a live show, and have the speakers face the audience…

    And then Hackett joined, and he had that chair thing. Rutherford was the opposite side of the drummer, and Gabriel had a kick drum, as well as a box of masks and paraphernalia, like he was a prop comic or something.

    What a bunch of freaks.

  26. Iz ok when I like the song.
    I like the song.
    You are safe.

    But I don’t like my new name too much….
    **cracks knuckles***

  27. You are SUCH a Girl Scout, Von…

  28. and he said, “God, aging sucks.”

    That sounds like Grizzled.

    Too much Munsters and Brady Bunch then to know where the really cool things were going on!

    Exactly, and I was still probably watching Sonny and Cher.

  29. Ok, I figured it out on my own!

    LOL. Because the video TITLE includes the year.

    It’s like you didn’t even watch the viddy.

    Like Von; who would recognize if she had watched it that it is several songs.

    Sigh.

  30. Roaming BG says:

    Ha-ha. Didn’t even notice. Obviously.

    Sooooo, let me get this straight. I DIDN’T watch the video because I didn’t notice the type on-screen before it started? Didn’t my huge new shallow crush on Peter Gabriel give you the idea that I DID watch it?

  31. Didn’t my huge new shallow crush on Peter Gabriel give you the idea that I DID watch it?

    I figured you were persisting in being wrong with regard to the LAST time I was ripping on Peter Gabriel.

  32. herr doktor bimler says:

    They were babies, Jennifer.

    Insert “Nursery Cryme” reference here.

  33. You mean hdb knows of music OTHER than BOC and obscure Australian bands?

  34. Roaming BG says:

    I figured you were persisting in being wrong

    Never confuse my persistence in being wrong with me actually being wrong. lol

  35. Jennifer says:

    I didn’t watch all 29 minutes. I didn’t realize there was going to be a quiz!

  36. Jennifer is banned. So banned.

  37. Nick says:

    What was that thing Gabriel did at the end with the mic stand? Was that supposed to be some sort of Townsend “smash the bloody thing” moment? It was hilarious.

  38. perhaps he was miming killing a Giant Hogweed?

    Dunno. He was a deeply weird young man.

  39. Nick watched all 29 minutes.

  40. Nick says:

    Except for the part where the camera was jumping back and forth between Banks and Collins like the cameraman was bored and was just kinda waving the equipment back and forth. Or maybe that was supposed to be cinematic flair. Probably high. Bloody hippie. That nearly gave me a seizure so I stopped watching for a bit.

  41. fish says:

    Insert “Nursery Cryme” reference here.

    I have just the detective.

  42. I see everything has gone downhill.

    Tallyho!
    ~

  43. Wow. A WHOLE lotta fucking with Von in these here comments.
    I DID watch the damn video.
    I DID
    Would everyone (BG, Z, EVERYONE) stop picking on me please!?

  44. Sorry Von. All meant in affection. Hands off now.

    downhill is apparently the only direction I go anymore thunder. i will attempt to be more entertaining and less vile.
