Update On The Return of The Official Genesis Forum

The webmaster of the official Genesis site had a hidden version of the soon to be available, newly revamped Forum up today for Moderators to test out for "bugs." It looks and works great! I'm guessing it will be on-line again any time now. The webmaster is also putting the Phil Collins official site's Forum on the same dedicated server, so that should be back soon as well. As stated here previously, please note that due to the fast pace by which the Forums have moved and been implemented on the new server, that all old content from the previous Forum is basically gone. You will need to create (or recreate) your username and password when it's officially back open for business.

Virtual Phil Collins Featured On Trailer For New Video Game

On the downloadable trailer for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, which is released on PSP on October 31st, you will see a virtual Phil Collins performing "In The Air Tonight" in concert. In the '80s, Collins became almost synonymous with the television series Miami Vice, in which Collins' music became an integral part of the soundtrack (as well as an appearance as "Phil The Shill" in an episode). You can read about Phil's personal thoughts about his new digital self here.

Peter Gabriel Unveils The Filter For Download Enthusiasts

According to an article in today's Telegraph, Peter Gabriel is announcing the launch of The Filter. The Filter is designed to study the music stored on a computer and suggest other albums and artists based on the owner's tastes. The software is available to download free from the Internet, and it lets people click on a single track in their music library and create a play list of similar songs for a PC or iPod. Gabriel, who owns a share of The Filter's parent company, believes the software is the most intelligent of its kind. "I think we are drowning in information and choices and you really need good filtering to help you get the stuff you really want," said the ex-Genesis vocalist. The Filter is available at www.TheFilter.com and while it is only available for Apple MACs right now, a Windows version is already in the works.

Today on NewKerala.com, Peter Gabriel comments that Genesis rehearsals are going well (despite his lack of involvement).

News About The Official Genesis Site

For those of you who miss the Forum section on the official Genesis site, I have some news. The webmaster of the official site is hopeful that Genesis' management will approve his suggestion that the site be moved to a dedicated Invision server.  The official Phil Collins site will then move there also.  The Forums will be back on-line shortly.  The bad news is that all postings on the old Forum (as well as User Names apparently) will be lost and everyone will need to start from scratch. More news on this when I get it. In other news, expect a revamping of the official Genesis site soon!

The article states that a spokesman for Genesis said specific details of the forthcoming tour and "long term plans," including possible NEW material, would be announced in the next few weeks.

For those who missed it, this site has been completely transformed. The old "look" of the site is dead and buried (with the exception of the screen shot you can see on the laptop of the Genesis loving bikini babe above!). Some of the features are not quite ready to go "live," but if something you recall from the old site is missing, not to fear, it will be back soon... Along with a number of new items for your viewing pleasure! There are many new updates coming soon, so be sure to check back often! New additions will be added to the news section of this site. So much to do... So little time!

Nick Davis Provides Updates On The Forthcoming Genesis Remastered Back Catalog

Nick Davis provided an update on the 5.1 Genesis back catalog reissues. Nick stated, "I still think there is a very good chance that the albums will come out on a regular DVD-V format and a hi-res (high resolution) format in the same package. This is what I am hoping for. As far as I know, they will be released in 'eras' with Trick of The Tail through to Abacab being the first releases." Nick says that it is looking very much like DVD-V on one disc and SACD hybrid (5.1 and the two stereo versions) on the other. (Webmaster's note: The two stereo versions refers to the stereo CD and stereo SACD layers - there is not a plan to include the original stereo mix at this time despite what you might be reading elsewhere).
