BTW Dean.  I stand corrected and my memory did  not serve me well. It seems it is indeed "stop the  pigeon". I remember in my head "catch the pigeon" being sung so well though. I was so sure I didn't even check. So...never be  sure I guess.Confused

I STILL hear catch the pigeon being sung in my head now. But it actually makes no sense when i  think of it. You'd want to  stop a messenger pigeon.

Thank you very much Sir Dean!!
Match of the day could belong on the ABACAB album!! Wow. Demo sessions? Sheesh they wanted to go commercial with that one.

Sheeesh.....they could have left the stuff in the vault, so nice to have most of it on the archive set. Clearly not album material and no none of the songs would have made ABACABSleepy Not good enough. Great to have the material anyway the OP's question....the song is about friggin PigeonsThumbs Up

The real problem I have with the E.P. (and my CD copy) is the cover - It has a picture taken from Maine Road - the ex-home of the filthy Manchester City - team of the (currently about to be sent down for filthy paedophilia) loathesome Stuart Hall......
See coincidences are just everywhere if you look for them.....Wink
Play me my song.....Here it comes again.......

Yes,  but  it is extra effort. stopping is sufficient. (So  why  the  nets?)Confused

All that is explained in the lyric (Nab him, Jab him, Tab him, Grab him). Unless of course that is a metaphor for the suppression of the free exchange of ideas perpetrated by an oppressive... Nah, it's about stopping a pigeon. LOL

Ah, you see nabbing and grabbing are surely the same as catching. That just proves my point.

Hey man. You like ABACAB? What's your feeling on that one?
Over many years exploring the world of Dark-Gothic Progressive Rock/Metal has been an unbelievably great experience. Colour me Goth all over! I'm hooked.

^ Love it and the way Genesis evolved. No prog band quite like them.Maybe it was my age growing up with the band and lets face it the 80's was in retrospect and incredible but odd decade. ABACAB was bold and yes more commercial, so whatSmile

I really like the EP,  Nice to have three more songs with Hackett after Wind And Wuthering.

Oooooooh gotta love those tubes! My guess is that he may feel its about post apocalyptic birds trying to take over the planet. I could be wrong. :)
