“The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them. To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.” ― Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Smallcreep’s Day is the 1st solo album by Genesis bassist and guitarist Mike Rutherford. It was released in 1980 ~
The title suite is based on the dark, surrealist novel of the same name by Peter Currell Brown, adapted by Mike to have a happy ending ツ
This will go down as one of the most underrated albums in history.
Smallcreep had worked for over forty years in the factory. Till
one day, tired of drilling holes in the same piece of steel and
amazed at his fellow workers’ lack of interest as to what they
were making, he decided to find out for himself.
The plant was so large that he roamed for days glimpsing other
worlds that were completely different to his; and not one
knew of another’s existence. At last he came to the end of the
line and there before him lay the gleaming new machine.
Satisfied by this sight and with the knowledge that in all the
places he had been nothing was really changed Smallcreep

“If you prevent men from seizing and wielding power over you by force, you do not solve the problem of human freedom. You merely make it necessary for others to acquire power over you by some other means.” — Peter Currell Brown

I consider SD a masterpiece album! just astounding. Always a pleasure to listen. It’s one of my all-time favorites..with so many textures and emotions. A great trip from beginning to end. Noel McCalla’s vocals are EXCELLENT, btw. Mike’s writing is brilliant, and Anthony Phillip’s keyboard playing is spectacular. And of course, Simon Phillips is no slouch on the drums..laying down a solid groove feel as always. Alongside Morris Pert’s interesting percussion textures. ~
