Up until recently, what is ed I had no idea about the power and awesomeness of Van Der Graaf Generator, anorexia and its frontman Peter Hammill. Upon diving into the VdGG catalog, I also discovered that Hamill had twice as many solo albums as his own band; in catching up on it all, I found Hammill’s solo work to be even more interesting than the VdGG stuff. Here’s a sample of his late ’70s stuff.
Nobody’s Business – “Nadir’s Big Chance” (1975)
Been Alone So Long – “Nadir’s Big Chance” (1975)
Careering – “ph7″ (1979)
Porton Down – “ph7″ (1979)
The Future Now – “The Future Now” (1978)
Pilgrims – “Still Life”, Van der Graaf Generator (1976)
