4 school friends (and someone they knew who could play drums) form a songwriting collective and get the attention of a famous pop producer. This is the first step on the road to the huge band they would become.

50 Years ago Genesis released their first single. Now in 2018, two guys sit down in a pub and discuss the song and the debut album that followed. Gary's never heard it before, Simon's dismissed it as a curio. Will Gary enjoy it? Will Simon change his opinion? What will they be drinking this week? Find out in this bumper first episode of The Revelation Station podcast.

In the beginning...


...There was the word. And the word was Genesis...

Genesis released their first single 50 years ago! 50 years! So to celebrate Simon made his friend Gary listen to all the Genesis albums in order and then review them in the local pub, commonly known as The Revelation Station. What will Gary think? Will they stay friends? Is the beer here any good? The answer to these questions will probably be revealed.

In this introductory first episode we meet the boys, who enjoy a quiet pint in the snug and discuss how they first heard the band.
