About The Music : May 2019

About The Music : May 2019 for sale at Basically Sound


Our next About The Music event is to be held on Thursday 16th May and this time we are featuring an artist who has been a key part of the rock & world music scenes for many years.

Peter Gabriel was one of the founder members of Genesis way back in the late 60's whilst he was still attending Charterhouse School. But, in 1975, he decided he would leave the band just as they were achieving significant commercial success.

Then, after four eponymously titled solo releases, 1986 saw the release of his fifth album So and, alongside critical acclaim, Gabriel achieved commercial success of his own with the album going "platinum" in five countries including the UK & US.

The album features collaborations with the likes of Kate Bush, Youssou N'Dour and Laurie Anderson amongst many others. The album's songs are described as essentially "pop tunes" that take on subject matters such as social discontent, sexual relationships, unemployment, materialism and commercialism.

The evening will feature the album So in its entirety whilst we will also be playing tracks from Peter Gabriel's equally impressive catalogue.

As always, places are strictly limited to ensure that everyone has a seat. If you would like to attend, we would gratefully appreciate it if you could either click on the "Book My Place" box below or call us on 01362-820800 to reserve your place. **

And light refreshments will be provided.

We look forward to seeing you... should be good.

** Please note that, with limited spaces available and our wish to allow each & every one of our customers a chance to attend these events, we will give priority to those wishing to attend who did not come along to our last About The Music event.
