Phont 328-1101 TORONTO In the dimness of an unlit stage a immobile figure peers out at its audience as if standing in judgment. The only perceptible highlight of the figure is a fluorescent green band outlining the un- seen scrutinizing eyes. A ominous mode from an organ floods the concert hall to complete the spectral aura. Suddenly white lights flash and the singer Peter whips his floor-length cloak to mark the start of an- other concert by Genesis. The introductory flourish is typical of the five-man British rock band's mixing heavy electronic music with grotesque theatrics. The lat- ter is exclusively the province of lead vocalist who goes through the entire per- formance garbed in bizarre makeup and cos- tumes. The dress-up while relatively new to the contem- porary music is not unique. With the acceptance in the last few years of such personalities as Alice bi-sexual David weird facial makeup and uncanny dress on male heavy-rockers is on the upswing. Take for example. During a recent concert at Massey Hall Gabriel went through no fewer than five changes of bee-lining for the stage wings during extended instrumental to appear minutes later in a get-up more fantas- tic thdn the last.

Despite the careful planning involved in such a Gen- esis leaves itself open to criti- cal questioning about its in- spirations and motives. Gen- it has been adopted the dress-up gim- mickry only after performers such as Cooper and Bowie had shocked audiences with it.. And as to the stage sensational stage production can be used at times to com- pensate for less-sensational music. The group is serious about defending itself against such comments. Gabriel's cos- tumes are not presented merely to draw shock reac- as do other his garb is always relevant to characters in the and provides a visual accom- paniment to the songs. To the theatrics are necessary to the group's product only in that they help convey a mood to a live au- dience. The band's records have been selling well for years in Britain on quality of sound alone.
