The first book to offer an in-depth exploration of Peter Hammill’s solo discography, Peter Hammill On Track reveals the sonic intensity and emotional turmoil that lie at the heart of PH's work.
Beginning with 1971’s Fool’s Mate and continuing all the way to 2021’s In Translation, Hammill has carved out a lengthy solo career consisting of some 35 albums, plus many live albums and collaborations. The range of styles in evidence on these albums is remarkable, from baroque progressive rock to snotty proto-punk, angular new wave, delicate ballads, electronic experiments and a full-length opera.
