Guy Evans & Peter Hammill ‎'The Union Chapel Concert'

£11.99

Guy Evans was invited to do whatever he wanted for a concert at Union Chapel. He decided to do a duet performance with Peter Hammill. And in the process the two of them invited a number of their favorite musicians to join them.

The onstage result that evening of Nov. 3, 1996 was a round robin of solos, duets and ensembles with musicians coming and going. Suddenly at the climax of the evening the audience realized that the ensemble in front of their eyes just happened to be Van der Graaf Generator performing together for the first time in nearly 20 years!

But they did so in a typically sideways manner which had more to do with the (radical) logic of the moment than with fitting into any genre or raking in the lucre in some sad pastiche of their younger selves. Thankfully the evening was preserved on this official bootleg.
