    Bonus: A Winters Tale

    Bonus: A Winters Tale

    Merry Christmas listeners!

    In this festive episode we travel back to Christmas Eve 2019 for an untold story of The Revelation Station. As the snow falls, two weary travellers chance upon a mysterious house in the middle of nowhere, where they are forced to spend the night. Unlike any other Christmas tale, ghostly goings-on ensue in a story that is most definitely NOT ripped off from anything else you might have seen or read. No music review in this one dear listener, this is a bit of fun to keep you amused (hopefully).

    We’ll be back with more reviews in the new year. Thank you for all your support in 2020. If you would like more stories to listen to, we have a special deal for you. Until December 28th 2020 you can get a free sample of Amazon’s Audilble catalogue. Simply click this link and you can choose a free episode of one of Audible’s biggest 2020 titles for free. Even better than that, if you take a free trial Amazon will donate money to the podcast. What do you have to lose? I highly recommend the Alan Partridge podcast.

    Episode 2.9: Peter Gabriel (Scratch)

    Episode 2.9: Peter Gabriel (Scratch)

    Greetings Stationeers! Welcome to our final review podcast of 2020!

    In this episode we will be having a listen to Peter Gabriel’s second solo album, released on 3rd June 1978. This marked a radical change of sound for Peter, who embraced the ethos of Punk and New Wave. He roped in prog rock legend Robert Fripp to produce the album and it was completed in record (geddit) time. This album sees Peter moving away from the proggy sounds of his previous release and closer to the global influences of albums to come. It also formed the first of a loose trilogy of Robert Fripp albums, along with Exposure, released in 1979 and Daryl Halls’ Sacred Songs, released in 1980.

    But what do the boys from the Station think of it? Did Gary enjoy the final track on the album? Which song is Simon’s favourite? Did Robert Fripp do a good job of the production? Why did Peter play a punk cover of “A Whiter Shade of Pale” on his 1978 tour? Just exactly what does “Frippertronics” entail? FInd out the answers to these questions and more by clicking play.

    NEXT EPISODE: We will return with more reviews in the New Year.

    I hope you enjoyed Robert Fripp’s solo album…I mean Peter Gabriel’s second album. As a special thank you for listening here’s an offer.

    Episode 2.8: Please Don't Touch

    Episode 2.8: Please Don't Touch

    From one guitarist to another, in this week’s episode we are listening to the second album from Steve Hackett.

    Please Don’t Touch (how many times have I heard that before?) was released in April 1978 on the Charisma label. It followed a period of time spent recording in America, and features some well known voices from across the pond. Without the restrictions placed on him by a band setting, Steve fully flexed his creative muscles to produce an album that is unlike his debut. Gone are the Genesis influences, with only Chester Thompson on drums, and in are the Rock sounds of Steve Walsh (of Kansas fame). It’s an eclectic mix, but does it work as an album?

    That, dear listener, is the question facing our intrepid duo this week. Does the album suffer from sophomore slump? Whose vocal performance does Gary describe as “a tour de force”? Which song does Simon skip? You can find the answers to all these questions, and more, by clicking play and having a listen.

    NEXT EPISODE: Peter Gabriel - 2 (or Scratch if you prefer)

    I hope you enjoyed that trip into the mind of Steve Hackett, as a special thank you for listening here’s an offer.
