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.

Doubt it. Amazes me that such wonderful psychedelic pop music was made in an environment that, by many accounts, was reportedly quite stuffy.

Working night & day, I tried to stay awake... (Turrican), Saturday, 25 February 2017 01:22 (one month ago) Permalink

I think things had loosened up a bit by then. Norman Smith had witnessed the erosion of some of the more uptight practices during his time with the Beatles, and surely recognized that Pink Floyd would not have exactly thrived with strict schedules and lab coats and such.

Norman Smith legendarily didn't "get" Floyd's music at all.

I've been doing a lot of Floyd and Barrett reading lately and it seems like it's not quite as simple as that. He seems to have been an enthusiastic participant at least on the first record but had his own pov that was perhaps not entirely floydian

Cognition (Remix) (Jon not Jon), Saturday, 25 February 2017 19:35 (one month ago) Permalink

He worked for days on the ending to "Bike." He wanted to out-do the Beatles as he was biter for them sacking him. It wasn't until Saucerful of Secrets that he and the Floyd started drifting apart. he said of the title track, "Personally, I think it's rubbish, but go ahead and do it if you want."

Mr. Snrub, Saturday, 25 February 2017 21:08 (one month ago) Permalink

I thought he stopped working with The Beatles because he'd been promoted?

Working night & day, I tried to stay awake... (Turrican), Sunday, 26 February 2017 00:22 (one month ago) Permalink

Wikipedia sez he was promoted by EMI from engineer to producer.

It also says,

During the sessions for the song "Remember a Day", drummer Nick Mason became agitated that he could not come up with the right drum part for the song. Smith, however, knew what he wanted with the drums, so he played the part himself.[6]

In the Beatles recording sessions book, the description was "during one particularly miserable session, Norman suddenly decided to quit the Beatles sessions. The four were all "hey Norman, it's not you mate, you all right?" but he was very "ah I love you lads, but I'm done, had enough now, been in this room too many years" at which point they all decided it needed redecorating at some point...

"The original recording was made at the Thomson studio in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire in November, 1966, before the Floyd signed to EMI."

'Hey You' just came up on shuffle play and it reminded me that Gilmour was actually quite a nifty fretless bass player... oh, what could have been if he'd taken the instrument up full-time, he could have given Mick Karn a run for his money.

Years back I did some work with Guy Pr@tt and I asked him 'so, is it *really* true that Gilmour played the good bass stuff on the records?' he just laughed and looked at me like I was crazy for even asking.

MaresNest, Saturday, 25 March 2017 10:17 (yesterday) Permalink

I would include Piper and Pompeii "Echoes" among "the good bass stuff," and always thought it was a shame that Waters never really kept at it -- he was on the verge of developing a unique voice on the instrument.

I think his playing was pretty good up until about 1970/71. Never really noticed it thereafter.

Bill Teeters (Tom D.), Saturday, 25 March 2017 12:01 (yesterday) Permalink

The way you see him hacking away at the Money bassline on an acoustic guitar on the making of DSOTM documentary suggests to me that he's got no feel whatsoever for the instrument.

He did the bulk of the good singing on the records too. The rest of the good singing, of course, being done by Rick Wright.
