OMG! Another VdGG fan in Cali? I remember going to see Peter Hammill at the Troubadour in the late 70s and wondering what the crowd would look like, since outside of a few friends I knew of no one who even knew who he was. For years I had a license plate, PawnHrt. And then there's Kate Bush...Hi all,
Goodness, a wishlist. Some bands I would love to hear in surround, in no particular order:
1. Van Der Graaf Generator, especially "Pawn Hearts" and "Godbluff."
2. Dead Can Dance
4. Joy Division
3. Peter Gabriel
5. The Cure
6. Frank Zappa
7. David Sylvian
8. Kate Bush
Oh, right-- I own "Up," though I don't think it's Gabriel's strongest outing. I recall reading (around the time that the Genesis stuff was being released) that he wanted to release all his stuff in 5.1, and I recall reading that they did make a 5.1 of "So," so I figure that one is ready to be released. But he must be a very busy man, ha, ha, ha.There's a pretty decent Peter Gabriel hits DVD that has a nice surround mix. Peter Gabriel, Play - The Videos. Also his album Up was released on mch SACD.

Would love to hear some Kate Bush (I nearly put something else) at some point... Steven Wilson has said he'd like to work on some of the catalogue so you never know? The Cure would be great too...
I'm in the North Bay! I ended up seeing Hammill live a few times in the '90s, when I lived in Europe. It was remarkable how he seemed to give himself completely to his music and the audience. I wouldn't have been able to see him in the '70s though, I was still waddling around in diapers then.OMG! Another VdGG fan in Cali?
