Peter Hammill - pH7 (1979)

Peter Hammill - pH7 

  The music and voice of Peter Hammill is I suppose either a hate of love scenario for most music lovers.  I think his music is like good aged scotch and either you apprecite itnor not!

  pH7  was Peter's 7th solo album released in 1979 and is one of his lesser referenced albums yet underneath is a fantastic exploration worthy of promotion.  

   Like all Hammill works the lyrics are heavy and dark with forboding melodies with vocals that border on the angst.  Instrumentally the music is top notch with the assistance on pH7 by VDDG member David Jackson and Graham Smith (the same line up as found on The Future Now).
