Back to The Lamb...
*Caution! Podcast contains excessive use of the word "dick". I mean, it's a bit too much to be honest. You should definitely avoid it if that offends you.*Rat infested and excrement covered, and that's just Gary and Simon, the recording of the Lamb was labourious but resulted in a masterpiece. This second half notably features the only lyrics on the album not written by Peter Gabriel. Funnily enough they are the only ones that make sense. Released on 18th November 1974, the album reached number 10 in the UK, number 14 in the band's second home of Italy and, surprisingly, number 15 in Canada.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. Does the story reach a satisfying conclusion? Is it a fitting end to Peter Gabriel's time with the band? 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.You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.Read more »
