WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Watch are an early-Genesis tribute band who also record their own material. Billed as The Blue Show - the Foxtrot album - they start with acoustic-based songs and build the tension as they add more powerful numbers. Exactly the way Genesis themselves used to do it around 1970/71. These guys really knew their subject, with singer Simone Rossetti sounding exactly like Peter Gabriel. As they moved into the powerful numbers such as Time Table and Can Utility and the Coastliners, you could feel the atmosphere build. By the time we got Musical Box and In the Cage, the band were feeding off a rapturous reception. Guitarist Giorgio Gabriel (his real name!) managed a beautiful rendition of Steve Hackett's classical solo piece Horizons, made all the more captivating by playing it on 12-string.
