A history of the band Van der Graaf Generator 1967 to 1978.
Van der Graaf Generator are one of the most unique and important groups to emerge from the British ‘underground’ of the late 60s. Throughout the 70s, they created a body of work like no other which in turns excited, overwhelmed, electrified, bedazzled, frustrated, and moved fans and critics alike. With their records and extreme live performances, they earned an intense international cult following creating music which was considered brilliant by some and difficult by others, but which over the years has continued to exert a widespread, powerful influence.
Now back together again, Van der Graaf continue to be a source of interest for fans, musicians, and the critics who have universally lauded their reformation. Sold out concerts and a new album which has garnered unanimous acclaim give light to the fact that interest in this most original group is running at an all time high.
Finally, for the first time ever, the insider’s story is presented. With up-to-date commentary from all past and present members of the band, input from over sixty others (including celebrity admirers, associates, former employees, friends, and family members), Van der Graaf Generator – The Book delves into the joyous, humorous, bizarre, and somtimes difficult inner-workings of a genius rock group.
