Seconds Out

seconds out

I just realized that the title of Genesis’ Seconds Out is probably an insult directed at Peter Gabriel.

It’s the live album from the tour for A Trick of the Tail, the album following Gabriel’s abrupt departure from the band.

“Seconds out” is what a referee says to a boxer’s coach, cut man, etc. to GTFO of the ring before the next round starts.

A subtle jab comparing Gabriel (and maybe Steve Hackett, who left while the album was being mixed) to a boxer’s “seconds”?
