This is by Vander's Alien Trio, which was a regular working group in the 1980s. Consisting of Michel Gaillier (formerly of Magma, and then a well-known jazz pianist in France) on piano, Alby Cullaz on double bass and Vander on drums, the group...

While this is listed as a 'solo' release by Magma's founder, this is, for all intents & purposes, the fourth Magma album, having been released between M.D.K. and Kohntarkhoz. Stripped down to the barest essentials of electric and acoustic pianos (all p...

After recording The Quiet Zone/The Pleasure Dome, VDG added cellist Charles Dickie and hit the road for another year, playing a bunch of loud, wild concerts and generally getting rave reviews. On January 16, 1978, the quintet (Charles, Peter, Graham, Guy, Nic) + special guest David Jackson played a concert at the Marquee Club, which was professionally recorded and later released as the double lp set, Vital. It's a pretty loud, wild, sloppy and good listen. One listen to this will tell you why....

Great to see VDGG firing on all cylinders and hitting the mark so hard and well!

"The brand new studio album by the legendary Van Der Graaf Generator. The stunning new album is the band’s 12th studio record by the band and is their first since...

This collection includes all the extant BBC recordings by the great VDGG, from their earliest days until the very end of their initial run. You're a VDGG fan and you don't have this? Buy it - it's really as simple as that. Some of these recordings are - imo - the definitive versions of these songs!

"Van Der Graaf Generator; musical pioneers, boundary pushers and visionaries, born in the creative maelstrom of late 1960s Britain, seemingly laid to rest in 1977 and re-born with new vitality in 2005...

The third studio release since VDGG came back from their 30 year slumber. This one is quite different, as it is a selection of experiments and improvisations. As Peter says, "Most of the music on "ALT” was made while we weren't really looking, or...

Peter Hammill, Hugh Banton and Guy Evans continue to evade the well known 'reunion curse' as they continue to plow their own field of creative and crazy rock music. God bless 'em all!

"Van der Graaf Generator release their 13th studio album ‘Do Not Disturb’, which is their third album since their reinvention as a three-piece group ten years ago.
The band adopted an old school approach of fully rehearsing the pieces before a record button was hit. Then, in an intensive week, all the backing t

For me, this is where it really begins to fall into place. The evil sounds start; so much so that bassist Nic Potter leaves in the middle of making the album due to the bad vibes he was getting. Not a problem, as Hugh Banton picks up the slack! This...

Few bands of the late 60s and 70s inspired such a devoted following as Van Der Graaf Generator. Fans found theirs some of the most rewarding and challenging music of the era. "The times were intense, and we were an intense, even scary band," admitted...

So, the story with this is that supposedly, this 2 CD version is a limited edition version and when they are sold out of this version, it will revert to a single disc version that will only include disc one. If this is really true, it seems crazy to...

The amazing, incredible fourth and final mk1 VDGG album from 1971. The question here is who is screaming harder? Banton's Hammond? Hammill's vocals? Jaxon's electronically modified saxes? Guy's off kilter but solid drums?

This was their last...

After a 3 year lay-off, Van der Graaf Generator came back with the original four members (Peter Hammill, Hugh Banton, David Jackson and Guy Evans) but with a bit of a change in sound. Still Life was the second of the three albums that the mk. II band would release.
Lots of rare photos, liner notes and project supervision by Mark Powell, and package design by Phil Smee. The bonus track is a live version of Gog from May 10th, 1975.

5{ring of 1976, this was the third and last of the mk. II Van der Graaf Generator albums. It is a long record - over 50' - and it's good to have it on CD now, so that I don't have to listen to the very thin grooves of my old vinyl pressing!...

Before C.V. jump-started Magma back into life, one of his main activities during the late 1980s and early 1990s was his trio with Philippe Dardell-double bass and Emmanuel Borghi-piano. When I saw them in the 90s, I thought it would be the only time...

Latest release from the mastermind of Magma is pretty much what long-time followers of Vander would expect from a solo album homage to his life-long idol, John Coltrane. There are aspects very reminiscent of Offering, where Christian plays piano and...
