Peter Hammill And Gary Lucas Team Up For Other World

(Prog) Van der Graaf Generator frontman Peter Hammill and former Captain Beefheart's Magic Band guitarist Gary Lucas are gearing up for the launch of a collaborative album entitled Other World, which they describe as "warped folk music."

The 14-track record will appear on February 3 via Esoteric Recordings and comes 40 years after the pair first met. Hammill explains how they started work in 2012: "We didn't exactly have a grand plan about what we were about to attempt. He told me he had pieces which might be worth working on, and I'd prepared some looped pieces. We probably thought we'd have done well if we managed to get an EP out of the session."

But he continues: "From the first note it became clear we were on exactly the same wavelength, and after a couple of days we knew we had the makings of an album. We've ended up with something quite strange but strangely powerful." Read more and watch the trailer.
