Prog Legends Van Der Graaf Generator Release Live Album


. (Prog) Prog legends Van Der Graaf Generator have released a live album, Merlin Atmos, via Esoteric Antenna. Peter Hammill, Hugh Banton and Guy Evans were captured live on their 2013 European tour, performing their epic A Plague of Lighthouse Keepers in full for the first time in decades - along with Hammill's Flight as the centerpieces of the band's live set.

Hammill says: "Flight had been in the repertoire since the last North American Tour. Lighthouse Keepers had only ever been played live once before, as far as we remember, back in the seventies.

"It was a pretty major commitment to say we'd be doing it before we'd actually rehearsed together. We were also doing it as a trio, whereas the original version was as a quartet with David Jackson. It took quite a bit of work to make it stageworthy!" Read more here.
