8. Foxtrot: Genesis

Sorry John don’t want to give you a punk rock heart attack! But this is a very important album to the development of my mind. The early Genesis albums opened up lot’s of possibilities with song writing. Even though they are down as progressive rock I see them as lot more than that. They were edgy they pushed the boundaries possibilities of music. After all, the hoards of smelly Afghan and Airforce trench coat wearing Trogs are only the same as todays outcasts ‘the Goths’! When all around were growing their Barnets to record lengths, Gabriel shaved his head down the middle for fuck sake, the polar opposite of the fine mohawk you sport my friend.
Progs Not Dead!
