NigelBetteridge (as Peter Gabriel/Phil Collins) has many years of experience singingthe early Genesis songs. This coupled with the theatrical costumes and masksthat Gabriel used (including “The Flower”, “Bat Wings”, “Magog”, “CrestedBritannia” and more) makes for a truly dramatic performance;
Howard Boder(as Tony Banks) our classically trained keyboards maestro, has gone to a lot oftrouble to re-create the early ‘Genesis/Banks’ keyboard sounds. Generous to afault, Howard tells you how to get these vintage sounds on YouTube (now withover 99,000 hits);
Bob Arnold (asSteve Hackett) with his Les Paul Gold Top as his main instrument is a hard-coredevotee of Steve Hackett’s work (including both electric and acousticrepertoires) – marvelling at his jaw-dropping rendition of the Firth of Fifthsolo is one of many highlights!
Kirk Watson (asMike Rutherford) not only has a multi-instrumentalist role (‘Rickenbacker’double neck-bass/12-string, bass guitar, bass pedals, 12 string acousticguitar), but sings backing vocals too – his contribution is, quite simply,awesome!
Russ Wilson (asPhil Collins) is our phenomenal drummer. A professional drummer performing with(amongst others) the Ultimate Elton and The Rocket Band, Curfew, and Fragile.He provides the band with a powerhouse of percussion!”

It was released on 19 October, 1984.Bruce Watson remembers the time verywell, amid the nationwide strife back in the UK, fully in the grip of theMiners Strike: “We started work onSteeltown back in June 1984 at Abba’s studio. We worked alongside Steve inStudio One as Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber worked on ‘Chess’ next door inStudio Two. Stockholm felt like the most expensive place on earth – it’s as if we were on a different planet to howthings were back home – my Dad was a miner, so what we did was knuckle down tohard work for six weeks”.
Regardedby many as a classic, the multi-million selling Steeltown went straight to the Number 1 slot in the album charts.
