Boomkat Product Review:
The second of this week’s re-issues from ex-Van Der Graaf Generator frontman Peter Hammill, ‘Fireships’ takes us into more electronic territory, breaching on the styles David Sylvian perfected so well in the late 80s/early 90s. The album was originally released in 1992 and has been difficult to obtain ever since, so this re-issue seems entirely appropriate. The music still bears some relevance today, especially seeing as Sylvian has enjoyed a rebirth of popularity recently, it would only make sense that people could look further into the electronic prog pile and pull out a Peter Hammill album. Recommended.
