Memories on this night

"A terrible gig was at The Marquee when we had a showcase and my amp went wrong. The twelve string used to feed back and we had got to the quiet bit in Stagnation and it was just a complete funnel of sound going on so they whipped out the lead to the amp and I was playing the main guitar: twelve string so Pete (Gabriel) was left trying to hear me and I wasn't sure what had happened so I turned UP rather than DOWN so when they plugged it in again there was this terrible roar, so I remember that!."

Anthony Phillips of Genesis, Genesis Revelations.
