Genesis bassist/guitarist Mike Rutherford’s debut solo album is about to be reissued.

Released in 1980, Smallcreep’s Day, will be available on CD on March 25.

Rutherford recorded it during a time that Genesis wasn’t very active. During the same time period, keyboard player, Tony Banks also recorded his first solo album. This all happened just before Genesis released Duke, which contained songs like “Misunderstanding,” “Turn It On Again,” and “Behind The Lines.”

The album is notable for not appearing on any streaming sites and although it will be released on CD, it’s unlikely to appear on Spotify any time soon.


  • Mike Rutherford is co-founder of Genesis.
  • Phil Collins, has stated that the current tour will be Genesis’ final tour.
