Van Der Graaf Generator

Profile:
Formed in the UK in 1967 by Peter Hammill, Chris Judge Smith and Nick Pearne (now deceased). After a period of activity during the 1970s, the band broke up (although not for the first time) in 1978, seemingly for good.

The "classic" line-up of Hammill, Guy Evans, Hugh Banton and David Jackson, reformed the band again in 2004 and released the studio album Present. Since September 2006 Van Der Graaf Generator has worked as a trio, without David Jackson.

beautifully and cleverly written by the previous author. but what does punk rock have to do with it. it is a man and a group of the highest flight in prog-rock. I have a collection of all albums. well, maybe some are not. unfortunately some on cD. well, it's fate. what to do. but it's so personal. to all lovers of the prog-rok to the obligatory acquaintance. at least with some.

One of the greatest bands ever. Peter Hammill may be the greatest lyricist and vocalist in rock history. What he lacks in natural singing talent, he makes up for in confidence, bravado and emotion. So much emotion. It's beautiful and terrifying, usually within the same song. A truly unique group.

Very very influential band to the punk movement, which it predated for at least a decade, thanks to its nihillistic lyrics and their sometimes avant-garde and dissonant jamming, not to menyion the high esteem it was regarded by Johnny Lydon of the Sex Pistols, among other mavericks of the punk scene...
