In 1974 the band Genesis released what many people consider to be the pinnacle of their musical works. This piece is called “The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway”. And it stands to this day as one of the finest examples of progressive concept music written in the last hundred years.
What is not commonly known is that within the gatefold of the original vinyl double album cover is the original “Lamb” story written by then Genesis vocalist Peter Gabriel. This is the story of the trials and tribulations of our hero Rael as told by ……. an ostrich.
Fast forward Forty Three years. The Lamb story is given a spoken word life by The PM Show via the creative and multi-talented Jason Dennington. Also recruited for this project are Jonathan Kruk as the voice of Rael and Rachel Flowers as the voice of Lily White Lillith.
Starting on Thursday November 30th The PM Show will present four special edition shows featuring each side of The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. Each segment of the music will be proceeded by the spoken word story for the segment of music it describes.
It’s the radio event of 2017. You don’t want to miss it. So don’t be late!!
The PM Show airs on Progzilla Radio in the UK at 6pm (GMT) on Thursday and 3am (GMT) the following Tuesday at http://www.progzilla.com/listen
