The following statement has been issued by Peter Hammill.

 

Van Der Graaf Generator - Future

After a period of consideration and some exploratory rehearsal sessions over the summer, Hugh Banton, Guy Evans & Peter Hammill are now looking forward with excitement to the next phase in the VdGG reunion.

They expect to be doing shows in the first half of 2007 and will also be recording new material in this period with a view to releasing an album later in the year.

Van der Graaf Generator is now a trio consisting of the three surviving members of the original 1968 formation. David Jackson has not been a member of the group since November 2005.

Voiceprint have issued the following release:

 

Yes Related Audio Visual Release On The Way
[25/09/2006]

Stand by Yes fans for news on a forthcoming Yes related release featuring a performance making its debut on DVD. Voiceprint have secretly been in negotiations with the artists concerned and are now putting the final touches to the proposed release and running order. It will mark the first time that this release has been made available officially in the DVD format.

Keep checking the Voiceprint website for more updates but we hope to have this DVD ready for release before Christmas...!    

 

Rumours amongst fans think either its a Conspiracy DVD or a possbile recording from Union tour from 1991. We'll just have to wait and see.

Picchio Dal Pozzo remaster
Latest News - Music News
Tuesday, 26 September 2006
Picchio Dal Pozzo's album Abbiamo Tutti I Suoi Problemi has been remastered by Bod Drake and has been released by ReR. The sound is much warmer, detailed and full than the existing CD. and according to sources without the needless limiting.

AFAIK, the band was formed by Aldo de Scalzi (keys & vocals) and Roberto Romani (tenor sax & flute) in 1973, and their debut-album was released some two years later. It's a little gem really, with stuffed-up dadaesque renditions of impulses from the Canterbury scene (Wyatt & Hatfield), some vaguely Krautish traces, snippets of The Mothers of Invention, and that unmistakably mediterranian take on passion, whimsical romance and the power of thought. Charming and very beautiful.

The recordings released in 2001 by Cuneiform, "Camere, Zimmer, Rooms", were done live-in-the-studio after a period of political transition. At this point, the band performed at leftist rallies, conventions and even psychiatric institutions. The played on the same bill as Area, whose voice maestro Demetrio Stratos introduced them to L'Orchestra, a musical cooperative instigated by Stormy Six, to whom they got to be closely acquainted.

"Abbiamo Tutti..." was issued on the L'Orchestra label, andis one of the best "rock" albums ever made on Italian ground. Like SSix's "Macchina Maccheronica" and some of Roberto Colombo's and Opus Avantra's work, this record offers a rare example of truly through-composed progressive rock form Italy - as opposed to 90% of the otherwise "merely" arranged material coming from the big names of the time. Influences? Zappa, Nucleus, Henry Cow and Gentle Giant,  yet the album maintains some standards which is uncompareable to anything - mainly on the part of it's extreme melodic richness.
