Phil Collins

It's been almost forty years since Peter Gabriel quit Genesis and while the chances of him and the rest of the band reuniting anytime soon are pretty slim, there is reason to rejoice for a different kind of upcoming Genesis reunion. Gabirel's team confirmed today that the band's prog-rock era lineup (Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Tony Banks, Steve Hackett and Mike Rutherford) would begin work on a feature length BBC documentary Genesis: Together and Apart. No official air date has been confirmed.

The documentary will outline the band's history, it's evolution of sound, and the band's radio-friendly commercial success in the Eighties following Gabriel's departure from the band.

No official word on if any of this will lead to any touring, long awaited by fans, but this is the closest thing to a reunion that's been seen from the band in many years, so who knows what might happen.

Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of Pittsburgh's finest music writers joins me (Cindy Howes) on the Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Scott Tady of The Beaver County Times.

In case you missed it here's what he played (with commentary by Scott).

Girls Names, “Pittura Infamante” - A slinky bass and drum beat and Johnny Marr-ish guitar groove yields to some shoegazer groovy-ness with a nice, icy keyboard on this single from a sophomore album released last week by the Belfast, Northern Ireland post-punks. They’re serious fellows; hence a song named for a style of Italian Renaissance era art meant to defame scoundrels, criminals and political cheats.

Big Scary, “Phil Collins” - You should’ve seen the look on Cindy’s face when I told her I wanted to play “Phil Collins.” Don’t worry: That’s just the song title by this Australian indie-pop, male-female duo who have toured with Florence + the Machine and Gotye. The vocals are chill, but you can’t get too relaxed with those waves of reverb-drenched guitar that keep crashing into the melody.
