You choose not to see it...

In 1996 after a whopping 25 years with the band, Phil Collins decided to call it quits and leave. And that was the end of Genesis…

Not really! Undeterred, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford pressed on. They wrote an albums worth of material at The Farm in January 1996 and in the meantime began a lenghty audition process. Many popular names were thrown into the ring such as Fish, Francis Dunnery and Mick Strickland. Finally, in a tense, X-Factor-like finish, the field was narrowed to two. Dave Longdon and Ray Wilson. And if you don’t know already who won the gig well…this will be a lovely surprise for you.

Sadly, this incarnation of the band was not to last. A cancelled North American tour and poor record sales meant that Tony and Mike elected not to carry on, and in 1998, after just one album Genesis was no more. Until the 2007 reunion tour that is! But that’s a whole other story.

Back in the present day, Gary has roped Simon into a shopping trip. But something isn’t right, and their refusal to accept the events of the last episode may have dire consequences. It may be the end of Genesis but it might also be the end of the world! Find out the secret history of Dave the zombie, meet our local Conservative candidate, gasp at the poor accents on display, scream at the unworldy beings dragged from another world, and I’m not talking about Gary OR Simon!

Who lives? Who dies? Who tells your story? Find out in this super-sized episode, all about the 15th and final Genesis album.
