Supper's Ready by davidraphael Supper's Ready by davidraphael
My interpretation of the epic song Supper's Ready by Genesis from their album Foxtrot.

There are 30 to 40 song references hidden within the image.

Particularly like Winston putting the British flag through the mangle , very poignant.
I have had a love affair with Suppers' ready ever since I first heard it more years ago than I care to remember.
The song has inspired me also and  I have one finished piece and one work in progress which I will return to now as you have inspired me - thank you.

That's really impressive. I applaud you for making so many references to that 23-minute piece of awesomeness.

I can identify almost all the references, tell me, are there songs from the Phil Collins era there? I think I see dancing on a volcano. And I think I see Congo too, but that's from the ray wilson era.

This is really great. You did everything in it? Because I think I see some of Paul Whitehead's artwork in it.
