Peter Gabriel, Nona Hendrix: City Hall, Newcastle
Phil Sutcliffe, Sounds, 24 September 1977
PETER GABRIEL used to the the guy behind the make-up, behind the monster-mask, behind the smokescreen; an original performer, a one-man spectacular. I admired but didn't enjoy too much. Now he has changed and so radically you wouldn't recognise him. Or perhaps the point is that you would recognise him — a good-looking guy after all, not a lot less lovely than Frampton in fact, if he cared to play it up.
