A Trick of the Tail is the seventh studio album by British rock band Genesis and the first to feature drummer Phil Collins as full-time lead vocalist following the departure of original vocalist Peter Gabriel. It was released in February 1976. After Peter Gabriel left Genesis, the remaining members held auditions for a permanent lead singer, although some members (most notably Banks) considered continuing as an instrumental act, as most songs were written without knowledge as to how they would be sung. Initially, Phil Collins did not wish to take over for Gabriel, opting instead to teach the potential lead singers the songs. One of the 400 auditioners, Mick Stickland, came close to being chosen, but the band and Mick decided in the end against working together. According to the band members, the backing tracks for A Trick of the Tail had already been recorded and were in a key in which Mick was not comfortable singing. When the auditions failed to produce a suitable vocalist, Collins reluctantly went in the studio to sing “Squonk” and the band decided that Collins should be the new vocalist.

The album was recorded at Relight Studios and mixed at Trident Studios in October/November 1975. It also marked the first album that the band would co-produce with David Hentschel. They would work with Hentschel for the next four years.

For the first time in their career, Genesis filmed promotional videos for their songs. Three videos were filmed. Banks’ “A Trick of the Tail” was the first, which featured the band playing to the track together around a piano. A miniature Phil Collins can be seen hopping around on a piano and a guitar (Collins later revealed that this video was the most embarrassing of his career). The second video was for the song “Ripples,” which was a performance clip. The third was for “Robbery, Assault and Battery” which depicted Collins as a bank robber who shoots an elderly man (played by Mike Rutherford) after holding him up and is then pursued by cops (played by Banks, Hackett and Rutherford), shooting Banks in the process.

A Trick of the Tail reached No.3 in the UK, remaining on the charts for 39 weeks, and No.31 in the US. Additionally, the album was certified Gold in the US by theRIAA in March 1990. Also according to Tony Banks in the essay that comes with Platinum Collection, the album doubled the band’s previous albums sales. This success was also financially crucial for Genesis who were $400,000 in debt by the time Peter Gabriel left.

More inspiration for the Lego brief 

Maentis
 
is a collective of artists from Paris specialised in graphic design, illustration and street art.
Their main sources of inspiration are anthropology, environment but also imaginary and fantasy world.
The first project of Maentis, 99 Steps of Progress, is a serie of illustrations parodying the famous “March of Progress” (that drawing synthesizing 25 million years of human evolution). Surprising, funny or sarcastic, the artworks will be created on various supports (such as t-shirts, posters, canvas, stencils…) and one new illustration will be unveiled everyday during… 99 days !
Check out their work on maentis.com and rendez-vous tomorrow for the next step !
