And put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique
And a swinging hot spot"

'War Pigs' - now there's a song.

Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds...

Never been more apposite.

While on the topic, Ray Davies has always resonated with me from The Kinks "20th Century Man" - Not essentially Classic Rock, but you wouldn't have Classic Rock w/o the Kinks IMHO.

"I was born in a welfare state
Ruled by bureaucracy
Controlled by civil servants
And people dressed in grey
Got no privacy, got no liberty
Cos the twentieth century people
Took it all away from me."

Also a little softer than Black Sabbath's "War Pigs"!

I saw Genesis on the Foxtrot & Selling England tours & for me those remain as my highlight albums - the climax of Suppers Ready never failing to raise the hairs on my neck as I recall a satanic flying Gabriel (there's a bit of comedy in that track too of course). Selling England is the album I have re-purchased the most times over the intervening years out of several thousand. 

The last time I watched Genesis was at Knebworth on the 'Then There Were 3' tour and I almost wished I hadn't (although, growing up just a few miles away, I was able to see Zeppelin, Floyd, Genesis, The Stones, Santana, Skynyrd & many more of the 'greats' over the years). 

Some time after I watched Tom Petty in 2008, pleased that I had at last seen him I was looking through my old Knebworth '78 programme & realised that he had been on that bill all along. All I remember is Genesis (& Devo Shocked) & another inebriated guy slipping down into the tented cess pit whilst we were all ejecting excess liquids balanced on extremely wet/slimy scaffold boards. He went right under !!!).

Good descriptions. 'All in a Mouses Night' is a bit naff!

'We Can't Dance' has its moments & is an improvement on 'Invisible Touch'.

Their last studio album, 'Calling All Stations' is a big disappointment & they sound like they
are going through the motions. Singer Ray Wilson has a good voice but alters the band's character noticeably.
I saw them on the tour for this album & they were excellent, but they just seemed to fade away
afterwards.
