Genesis – Keep It Dark (12″)

Keeping the momentum going…. (and the video was shot in Amsterdam!!)

From 1981 and one of my favourite tracks by Genesis, that synth bass lead rocks big time (and those drum loops). The main message being Government that keep secrets they shouldn’t to subdue public fear (Kept In The Dark) Weird time signatures keep it in the Prog Rock genre. The b-side is more like their normal stuff, a jazzy/prog instrumental. Abacab is here in it’s album version – the song that got me into the band.

  1. Genesis..awesome, Thanks a lot

  2. Agree, between this album and a couple other albums about 3 or 4 tracks got me hooked on to this band. (BTW) saves me sending this over. “Abacab” was played on the airwaves a lot Down Under!!

  3. Excellent EP. I’m a huge fan so i’m pretty biased.
