30 years of Dusk

On March 16, 1991, issue zero of a glorious fanzine (later transformed into a glossy magazine) was closed in the virtual editorial office of Dusk, which, unique in the world, still stands today in printed form.

To celebrate this incredible anniversary, in addition to the special issue reserved only for associates we are working on, we asked some friends to share the joy with us.

We will upload their greetings on this page.


Genesis – 1967 to 1975: The Peter Gabriel Years

        by Mario Giammetti due to be published on 8 May 2020

Kingmaker Publishing, launched last year by Prog magazine journalist Nick Shilton and Big Big Train founder Greg Spawton, is delighted to announce the publication of its first book. Genesis – 1967 to 1975: The Peter Gabriel Years by Mario Giammetti will be published on 8 May 2020.

Genesis – 1967 to 1975: The Peter Gabriel Years is the definitive biography of the early years of one of the world’s greatest progressive rock bands. It contains numerous exclusive interviews with band members and with all of the important personalities who were part of the story of Genesis between 1967 and 1975.

The book also features a number of photographs which have never been published previously, plus interviews carried out with individual members of Genesis during listen throughs of each of the band’s first five albums.

Greg Spawton comments: “I have been a huge Genesis fan since my youth and have read every book in existence about the band. However, Mario’s book contains a wealth of details about the Peter Gabriel era of Genesis that were previously unknown to me. I felt these insights needed sharing with the Genesis fan base and therefore was very keen for Mario’s book to be Kingmaker’s debut publication.”

Mario Giammetti is an Italian music journalist with over 30 years’ experience. He has written for numerous Italian music magazines (including Classic Rock, Rockstar and Jam). In 1991 he founded Dusk (www.dusk.it) the only printed magazine in the world dedicated to Genesis. He has written 14 books related to the world of Genesis.

  Genesis. Gli anni Prog 1969-1975 di Mario Giammetti
New book by Italian writer Mario Giammetti dealing with the progressive era of Genesis (1969 - 1975). The studio albums of that period (from From Genesis To Revelation to The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway) are critically analysed with the fundamental input of all band members, interviewed by Giammetti himself and British journalist Mike Kaufmann. Mario, in particular, listened to of all the albums together with some of the protagonists: Tony Banks (who also wrote the interesting foreward), Steve Hackett and Anthony Phillips all kindly dedicated their time to comment, minute by minute, the music, something which makes this volume really different. Although the book (240 colour pages with a lavish layout) is written in Italian, it is still worthy for Genesis fans worldwide, thanks to loads of rare and unseen before photos, as well as ticket stubs and other memorabilia. Plus, it features an updated and accurate list of all the gigs of the Genesis tours, compiled with the help of American collector George German.
