  1. Peter Hammill performed with the k group in the early 80s, following VdGG's second split, writing more songbased, punchy new-wave rock. Originally set up as a touring band for Peter Hammill's solo work, Hammill brought material to the studio, where the band gave fresh and energetic backing to Hammill's philosophical lyrics.
  2. Peter Hammill & The K Group Live At Rockpalast - Hamburg (DVD-V + CD) (Mig-Music) Forty years after the events, the sheets of spit and howls shot towards Prog as "Pompous Music" seem to have been replaced by a calmer, more peaceful, money-driven attitude.
  3. The Margin is a brilliant document of Hammill's early-mid 's 'Beat Group' on active live duty. This expanded version includes an extra disc of material.
  4. In contrast to VDGG HAMMILL did not regard the K-GROUP as a band in the literal sense. 1 was the boss; it was 'my' band. But our human and musical interaction was unimpeachable." Thanks to the K-GROUP, PETER HAMMILL succeeded in giving more hardship and directness to his music than it had been the case at his usual solo performances.
