Treasures from the Attic No 8: When Genesis were just the warm-up act for Lindisfarne

October 10, 1972 and folk/poppers Lindisfarne were huge, playing sell out theatres and festivals.

Here, at Manchester's Free Trade Hall,  they were supported by singer songwriter Rab Noakes ... and the opening act was a bunch of strange guys called Genesis.

It was the month Peter Gabriel & Co released fourth album Foxtrot and, much to the bemusement of Fog On The Tyne fans, Gabriel wore a fox’s head.

The only reason for such a mismatched bill was that they were all then on the Charisma record label. 

Wonder whatever happened to Genesis....
