there's a factory down the street from me that's been abandoned for well on 20 years now. people used to go there and get stoned, spray paint the place. the crowning piece is about 30 feet up the outside wall, in white, where some fan wrote in a narcotized stupor: PINK FLYOD.

eight years pass...

i've been listening to a 1974 bootleg that smokes, w/ early versions of animals tracks + "crazy diamond" + full dark side + echoes! awesome. they sound kinda more raw/rocking here. not like the stooges or anything, but ...
Seems weird that the Floyd haven't put out a rad career-spanning live set or something.

[fuck this guy and his question mark]
Pink Floyd Rules?
I've actually felt better about Pink Floyd. After listening to a lot of their songs on radio, I've developed a liking to them. I still some of their songs are crap, but "comfertabally numb" "another brick in the wall, pt 1, 2, and 3", "Money", "Hey You" and other songs are very good. They're pretty good, let them pass.

My brother hates Pink Floyd, but a lot of my friends like them. Some user (Bart247) suggested once I listen to the Dark Side Of The Moon. All I've heard is Money, but that's a good song. I will put these guys on my "Master's Of Rock" series, and expect to see more episodes in the future.

I'd thought I'd post this up to tell you my changed opinions on Pink Floyd. Although they might not be the best band ever, they're one of the best. I have The Wall album already, but maybe I'll look forward to listening to them more.

music - it's all about the lyrics

Ben Lincowank (Noodle Vague), Sunday, 28 August 2016 10:15 (four weeks ago) Permalink

he has written an awful lot of horrible lyrics, yes

jez coorbes (wins), Sunday, 28 August 2016 10:17 (four weeks ago) Permalink

And an awful lot of great ones as well.

Obviously the music is important as well and I'd be the first to admit that a lot of what I love about Floyd comes from Gilmour's voice and guitar, but as far as what makes Floyd great overall the scales are heavily tipped in Waters' favour

heaven parker (anagram), Sunday, 28 August 2016 10:21 (four weeks ago) Permalink

i like a lot of Floyd, like a lot of Waters' contributions, don't give a shit about any sense of that band having an auteur and think most of their lyrics are disposable

but this whole spat started with the assertion that preferring to watch a concert featuring a beautiful guitarist rather than a dude who wrote some lyrics would be "seriously crazy"

Ben Lincowank (Noodle Vague), Sunday, 28 August 2016 10:23 (four weeks ago) Permalink

like i'm not "lyrics never matter" but if you privilege their deep meaningfulness over how music sounds then go and read a book or something

Ben Lincowank (Noodle Vague), Sunday, 28 August 2016 10:24 (four weeks ago) Permalink

Waters was absolutely Floyd's auteur, it is well documented that none of the others contributed squat post DSotM

The point I was making is that it's better to watch lyrics sung by the dude who wrote them rather than the bloke who didn't

heaven parker (anagram), Sunday, 28 August 2016 10:25 (four weeks ago) Permalink

anyway I think I'll take your advice and go read a book

heaven parker (anagram), Sunday, 28 August 2016 10:27 (four weeks ago) Permalink

maybe think about any exceptions in the history of music to "i'd rather listen to the lyricist sing"

Ben Lincowank (Noodle Vague), Sunday, 28 August 2016 10:28 (four weeks ago) Permalink

No-one cares about Cole Porters singing voice.

while i get all the waters hate here, particularly when he keeps saying stupid shit in public, i also think it's kind of ridiculous. ooooh, he's not really a very good musician or singer! boy that's a stinging indictment when it comes to rock music.

gilmour has a nice guitar tone and all but you go to see him in concert and he'll play the song he wrote based on parisian mass transit jingles. he's also more likely to dig up something like "childhood's end", mind, so that's in his favor, but he's pleasant to the point of being dull.

"I'd rather hear Floyd songs sung by the person who wrote them"

gilmore wrote plenty of good floyd songs

akm, Sunday, 28 August 2016 19:04 (four weeks ago) Permalink

I'd rather hear pre-DSOTM anyway.
Glad to have a pile of the live stuff from the early years.

Really good to hear that Paradiso '69 set Celestial Instruments which I'd been missing up to last night.
Thought I'd picked up about one of every gig that went out in a torrent war a couple of years back. But somehopw hadn't got that.
Does sound fantastic though, presumably soundboard though vocal-less apart from the bit of Astronomy Domine that bled into the drum mic.
the Copenhagen '67 set sounds like something people should be exposed to if they're remotely into distorto guitar rock stuff. Seems much more aggressive than I think one would immediately think of Barrett era Floyd sounding.

does anyone have that box set with a zillion gajillion discs (CDs, DVDs, Blu-Rays) of stuff from the syd barrett era? it's like $600, so i can't afford it, but it looks rather incredible.

have to admit that the only floyd albums i unreservedly adore are the two with contributions from barrett. so i guess i'm "that guy" on every floyd thread.

Richard Wright gets left out of Floyd fighting every time alas.

Elvis Telecom, Monday, 29 August 2016 06:13 (four weeks ago) Permalink

Box set also comes out as 6 individual sets some time next year. Not sure when. & hoping price is reasonable. People have said the full box is a bit steep compared to say King Crimson's ones with comprehensive coverage of particular eras.
Also it is feared that the 7th set which is exclusive to the full box won't have great sound. That's the one with Syd Bbc sessions.

Stevolende, Monday, 29 August 2016 07:18 (four weeks ago) Permalink

Was Richard Wright Pink Floyd's second best song-writer (after Syd)?

even if we're sticking to his best-loved work, come on, "fearless" (gilmour/waters) vs. "summer '68" (wright)?

Flamenco Drop (VegemiteGrrl), Tuesday, 30 August 2016 04:35 (four weeks ago) Permalink

i love rick, but he strikes me less as a harrison-style "dark horse" and more as a carl wilson type. "long promised road" and "feel flows" are both really good songs, but by no means would i call carl one of the pre-eminent songwriting talents of that band, and with those two solo albums of his the bad far outweighs the good in his catalog.

and even the good.. the scarcity of his songwriting contributions for the band does a little to mask his fairly limited range as a songwriter. he wrote about drinking and one-night stands and had an inexplicably fondness for that "ADRINKADRINK" kind of riff, all awkward chords and unappealing quiet-loud contrasts. when he wasn't doing that, or his damn "turkish delite" riff, he would do songs like "stay", which i like, it's fine soft rock, but you know, it's no "motel blues". hell, it's not even mark eric.

rick also had, for most of his life, the problem that he didn't feel comfortable singing lead live. given that he was in a band with roger waters this is clearly a psychological and not a musical issue, but a lot of floyd's songs took flight in concert. as leaden as waters' pastoral folk stuff like "grantchester meadows" could sound on record, when they went on kqed and waters and gilmour dueted on it the song was much improved. same thing with gilmour's "fat old sun" - just fantastic in concert.

a confederacy of lampreys (rushomancy), Tuesday, 30 August 2016 11:42 (four weeks ago) Permalink

or his damn "turkish delite" riff

>:[

He seemed to lack self confidence in his musical abilities, and it seems like his bandmates didn't do much to discourage from that viewpoint.
