Richard Cook, New Musical Express, 11 August 1984

A SCHOLAR comes out of his cell. Peter Hammill's art has been obsessively documented by records but less so by performance. This solo show looked over a dozen years of Hammill the experimenter, the tragedian, the prophet, the Pavlovian scientist, the doom-browed jester, the singer of songs.

Total word count of piece: 236
