Supper's Ready (22:48)

Cover of Seconds Out

From Seconds Out and 42 other releases

i.Lover’s Leap

In which two lovers are lost in each other’s eyes, and found again transformed in the bodies of another male and female

ii. The Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man

The lovers come across a town dominated by two characters; one a benevolent farmer and the other the head of a highly disciplined scientific religion. The latter likes to be known as “The Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man” and claims to contain a secret new ingredient capable of fighting fire. This is a falsehood, an untruth, a whopper and a taradiddle, or to put it in clearer terms; a lie.

iii. Ikhnaton and Its-a-con and their band of merry men

Who the lovers see clad in greys and purples, awaiting to be summoned out of the ground. At the G.E.S.M’s command they put forth from the bowels of the earth, to attack all those without an up-to-date “Eternal Life Licence”, which were obtainable at the head office of the G.E.S.M.’s religion.

iv. How Dare I Be So Beautiful?

In which our intrepid heroes invesitigate the aftermath of the battle and discover a solitary figure, obsessed by his own image. They witness an unusual transmutation, and are pulled into their own reflections in the water.

v Willow Farm

Climbing out of the pool, they are once again in a different existence. They’re right in the middle of a myriad of bright colours, filled with all manner of objects, plants, animals and humans. Life flows freely and everything is mindlessly busy. At random, a whistle blows and every single thing is instantly changed into another.

vi Apocalypse in 9/8 (Co-starring the delicious talents of wild geese)

Walking across the sitting-room, I turn the television off
Sitting beside you, I look into your eyes
As the sound of motor cars fades in the night time
I swear I saw your face change, it didn't seem quite right

    And it's from Foxtrot, of course, but the tags on that album are messed up.

    The Steve Hackett / Mikael Åkerfeldt reworking is *almost* as pant-wettingly awesome as the original - one for Opeth fans :) look it up if you haven't already

    O got to tell ya'all about the first time I saw Genesis, a few of my friends and I went to some little hole in the wall club to see Lou reed & Velvet Underground with Nico and the warm-up band was Genesis complete with Gabriel and the neon pyramid on his head! We were burning the weed all night long for $5.00 and that was the admission price too, GOD the 70's were the best!!!!!!!!!nuff said,I could go on all night about this set................

    Also, watching a video of this live made me realize what an amazing frontman Peter Gabriel was.
