Genesis – The Artist
Genesis were an English rock band formed at Charterhouse School, Godalming, Surrey, in 1967. The most successful and longest-lasting line-up consisted of keyboardist Tony Banks, bassist/guitarist Mike Rutherford and drummer/singer Phil Collins. Significant former members were original lead singer Peter Gabriel, and guitarists Anthony Phillips and Steve Hackett. The band moved from folk music to progressive rock in the 1970s, before moving towards pop at the end of the decade. They have made worldwide sales of between 100 million and 150 million records.
Mama- The Song
“Mama” is a song by the English rock band Genesis, released as the first single in 1983 from their self-titled album. It is recognisable for its harsh drum machine introduction composed by Mike Rutherford, which leads into minimalist synthesizer lines in a minor tonality and finally Phil Collins’ reverb-laden voice. It remains the band’s most successful single in the UK, peaking at No. 4 on the UK Singles Chart. The song’s theme involves a young man’s longing for a particular sex worker. On the DVD The Genesis Songbook, the band and producer Hugh Padgham revealed that the inspiration for Collins’ laugh came from rap music pioneer Grandmaster Flash’s song “The Message”.
Mama – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the word ‘Mama’ as depicted on the records picture sleeve. Mama is slang for mother. A mother is the female parent of a child. A woman may be considered a mother by virtue of having given birth, by raising a child who may or may not be her biological offspring, or by supplying her ovum for fertilisation in the case of gestational surrogacy.
