saw The Watch tonight

Milan, Italy's Genesis tribute band not only does a great job evoking the classic Gabriel era performances, but also write original songs in the style of early Genesis, and do it seemlessly and brilliantly. I bought one of their original CDs called The Vacuum. Can't wait to hear it.

It's sometimes scary how much their singer sounds like Peter Gabriel, but it's pretty awsome, too. I never saw Genesis, or solo Gabriel, and these guys performed tonight what I imagine the sound of a Foxtrot era Genesis show would have been. They said they are planning to come back next year and play Selling England By The Pound - I look forward to it.
