This book is a labour of
love from the Peter Hammill & VdGG Study Group.
Who are we? People who appreciate VdGG, fans... but the kind who likes
taking the initiative! The Study Group is a gathering of People.
People who share the same interest in the works of Van der Graaf Generator,
and therefore strive to actively promote their interests, even beyond
the strictly musical ones. This “Study Group” kind of
association might seem strange or even a little snobbish, but it simply
sets itself apart from the typical “Fan Club” thanks to
its cultural and at the same time productive
attitude. It proposes to look for meanings and take actions, not just
receiving idly whatever is given. Its goal is to bring together all
the enthusiast – who frequently happen to be “hermits”,
oblivious of each other’s existence and often even oblivious
of the upcoming musical events – and to investigate and share
specific aspects of VdGG’s works, such as the history of their
exhibitions or the translation of the lyrics of their songs. It also
aims to generate opportunities for the musicians
to perform, in a way that is satisfactory to both the audience and
the artists themselves.
