Peter Hammill Patience Limited 180gram Heavyweight Vinyl LP

Overview:
MADFISH RE-ISSUE 1983 ALBUM 'PATIENCE' BY PROLIFIC UK-BASED PROG VISIONARY PETER HAMMILL ON VINYL

The follow up release to Peter Hammillís 80s solo work 'Enter K', Madfish re-issue 'Patience', recorded with the K Group following his split from the Van der Graaf Generator art rock band. Originally released in 1983, the record reached #15 in the UK Indie album charts.

Hammill was known for covering dark motifs with his lyrics, which, along with his 34 solo studio albums and progressive work with the popular Van der Graaf Generator band, this led to him receiving the first ever Visionary Award in the Prog Awards 2012, and to collecting the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016 alongside Van Der Graaf Generator bandmates.

A founding member and primary song-writer for Van der Graaf Generator, Hammillís vocals have been a distinctive part of the Prog genre from 1967 to the Post-Prog output of the 2000s

Peter Hammill performed with the K group in the early 80s, following Van der Graafís second split, writing more songbased, punchy new-wave rock. Originally set up as a touring band for Peter Hammillís solo work, Hammill brought material to the studio, where the band gave fresh and energetic backing to Hammillís philosophical lyrics.

Hammill writes describes the band as ďnot exactly a Beat Group but probably the closest ensemble I've ever been in which would come under that category... And the K group really was something else.Ē
