Tribute To Legendary 10cc Alumnus Kevin Godley
This special edition of Listening Through A Glass Onyon will be aired on Sunday, October 4, 2009 at 12:00 pm EST (USA) / 5:00 pm (UK) and can be accessed here. The program will showcase music from various points in Godley's career - from Hotlegs to 10cc to Godley and Creme to his most recent celebrated collaboration with former 10cc partner Graham Gouldman, under the guise GG06.
Kevin Godley, former half of the pioneering duo Godley and Creme, has directed and produced some of the most successful music videos in rock and roll for such artists as Duran Duran, U2, Peter Gabriel, Herbie Hancock, Rod Stewart, Keane and The Police to name just a few. The six new GG06 tracks are graced with his tremendous voice - Kevin is arguably one of the great vocalists in music today. "I always figured Kevin had the best voice in the band," complements Graham Gouldman, "ironic that he never sang lead on a 10cc single… Even I managed that. Now justice has been done. Kevin's voice and razor sharp lyrics take us places we haven't visited before… Always a good place to start!"
Godley and Gouldman's recent collaboration GG06 has been receiving rave reviews worldwide. "Now with Gouldman being a legendary songwriter in the sixties, this was likely to be a melodic treat." says Stuart Hamilton of Zeitgeist. "And it is. Despite the years, he and Godley seem to bring out the best in each other, with Godley adding a bit of an edge and Gouldman smoothing the rougher edges away. But it's a much bleaker world they inhabit nowadays with tales of workplace ennui, rape, lost youth and bullying. Not a cheery place. But, despite the passing of time, Godley and Gouldman haven't forgotten how to write a hook, and it's to their credit that you still feel drawn to the material, regardless of the subject matter." The new GG06 tracks are currently only available for download from the duo's website: www.gg06.co.uk
