Hey! I'm seeing double here!
In a rat-infested, excrement covered house in Wales, Genesis reconvene, for the last time, following the Selling England Tour. Despite Peter leaving the group during recording (only to return), and through a lot of emotional twists and turns the band come together to deliver a bona-fide classic of the prog rock genre with The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway. Finally released in November 1974 it marked the end of the Peter Gabriel era, and went on to become one of the most popular prog rock concept albums. It made it to number 10 in the UK album charts but failed to produce a hit single.
In this episode Simon and Gary find themselves trapped in a weird landscape so they take the opportunity to discuss the tumultuous recording of the album and manage to get to the Chamber of 32 Doors, although Simon somehow manages to end up wet again. What do they think of this first half? Why don't the hundreds of people in the chamber just work together to escape? Why is brother John such a dick? All this, and more is discussed.
