A new book on Van der Graaf Generator is to be released next month. Van der Graaf Generator On Track, by US writer Dan Coffey and published by Sonicbond Publishing will be out on November 30 (December 30 in the US). The book explores every album and every song from the band.
The publishers state: “This book will explore what these musicians, and legions of dedicated fans, found so inspiring over the years: all of the VdGG albums, including Pawn Hearts and Godbluff as well as several solo Hammill albums crucial to the VdGG story, are discussed in these pages, including a handful of essential live recordings, experiments, and collaborations. Nothing like this analysis of the band has been published before, and this book will prove an invaluable guide for navigating the Van der Graaf Generator sonic labyrinth.”
