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.

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.

Can anyone advise, what is the best recording/boot from that funny period in early 1970 when they were playing Main Theme From More, Violent Sequence, Heart Beat, Pig Meat, Sisyphus and so on. Thanks!

MaresNest, Monday, 20 April 2015 09:22 (4 months ago) Permalink

there are no good boots from that period. the recordings that exist are lo-fi and difficult to listen to. the go-to one is birmingham feb 11 1970, which contains all of the tracks you mention, runs at a wonky speed, and lacks anything remotely resembling treble. if you want something of even worse quality you can check out croydon jan 18 1970, which has a better version of "main theme" and an extremely strange version of "the embryo", but it is a tough listen.

rushomancy, Monday, 20 April 2015 10:45 (4 months ago) Permalink

Thanks! I had feared that might be the case, I think I read somewhere that the Harvested guys did a remastering job on the Birmingham recording, I will track it down.

MaresNest, Monday, 20 April 2015 11:07 (4 months ago) Permalink

1970-01-18 Fairfield Halls, Croydon is a decent one too. Long description here:

Elvis Telecom, Tuesday, 21 April 2015 01:58 (4 months ago) Permalink

Doh! Adding to what rushomancy said, apparently Croydon was the first time "The Embryo" was played.

Elvis Telecom, Tuesday, 21 April 2015 02:01 (4 months ago) Permalink

Concertgebouw '69 is amazing.

Iago Galdston, Tuesday, 21 April 2015 02:15 (4 months ago) Permalink

technically floyd did embryo for a bbc session in '68, but that was the "works" version... croydon was its revival as part of the regular set for the next two years (and you can tell it's the first time because they hadn't really worked out a standard structure for it yet- the opening riff shows up somewhere in the middle- which they had by feb 11).

rushomancy, Tuesday, 21 April 2015 11:54 (4 months ago) Permalink

those who are into strange versions of "the embryo", incidentally, should check out the bizarre ernst-merck halle 1970 version with the lengthy "corrosion"/pict rant intro, as well as some of the last versions- the final recorded performance from nov 20 1971 reaches up to a good half hour, but i prefer the hunter college take from earlier in the month, which touches on some of the same themes but is slightly less padded (only 20 mins).

rushomancy, Tuesday, 21 April 2015 11:56 (4 months ago) Permalink

So great! My first PF boot too, the version of Biding My Time is hilarious, for the last two years I've been trying to persuade EMI/Warner to put it on the fabled Early Years Box Set

Mark G, Tuesday, 21 April 2015 13:41 (4 months ago) Permalink

It is fabled because it's been talked about since before EMI got fucked. I know somebody who is part of the team, but I can't say much unfortunately :(

MaresNest, Tuesday, 21 April 2015 14:08 (4 months ago) Permalink

I've concluded it doesn't matter much if it ever comes out or not. The Immersion Editions that did show up pretty conclusively show that they don't really have crap sitting around in their archives that you can't hear in pristine quality on bootleg.

rushomancy, Tuesday, 21 April 2015 23:06 (4 months ago) Permalink

If there is such stuff lying around I would buy it on an official release but not a bootleg, so it does matter if it comes out.

anthony braxton diamond geezer (anagram), Wednesday, 22 April 2015 07:37 (4 months ago) Permalink

We need a official Pink Floyd Bootleg Series of Ruling more than any more Immersion sets. Probably make more money too.

Absolutely dire. Sounds like an outtake from About Face.

There's also a "making of" featurette going around in which Gilmour says the main riff was inspired by a jingle he heard at a French railway station. Maybe keep that to yourself, eh David?

anthony braxton diamond geezer (anagram), Wednesday, 22 July 2015 10:06 (1 month ago) Permalink

I think all the old guys from prog bands (or even people like brian wilson) need one young, advant garde, funky/grungy rocker to turn an old, sterile sound into something with teeth.

I expected worse from a new solo Gilmour song. The keyboard theme makes a nice groove. It just isn't enough to bring this song out of retirement

The Once-ler, Wednesday, 22 July 2015 13:08 (1 month ago) Permalink


The problem here is that this merely features Brian and the indie band sounds millenial as opposed to 60's, 70's or 90's

I can't expect to find any good, young, artsy, funky/grungy skronkers these days

The Once-ler, Wednesday, 22 July 2015 13:43 (1 month ago) Permalink

Any frenchman will recognise the riff as the national railways jingle (SNCF):

The Once-ler, Wednesday, 22 July 2015 13:58 (1 month ago) Permalink

I didn't mind a lot of 'On An Island', there was a charm about that kinda somnambulant, hushed dadrock. But this new thing is all pastel colours, suit jackets with shoulder pads and bassists with colourful ethnic waistcoats, hope the rest of the record isn't a hopeless pile of junk.

MaresNest, Wednesday, 22 July 2015 14:58 (1 month ago) Permalink

I'd be really happy if he took more notes from Manzanera and went all early 80s Roxy Music.

dan selzer, Wednesday, 22 July 2015 16:32 (1 month ago) Permalink

that'd be good.
feel like gilmour is the kind of guy who should just be locked in a studio for a day w/ his guitars/amps -- what he'd come up with that way would probably be better than this blando stuff.

I think all the old guys from prog bands (or even people like brian wilson) need one young, advant garde, funky/grungy rocker to turn an old, sterile sound into something with teeth.

A remixer du jour might be more beneficial in this case. Hey, quite a few Balearic heads loved The Endless River.

Not sure but this article mentions a full recitation of Metallic Spheres at Cafe Mambo (at sunset but sans Gilmour, sadly) and further explores the Floyd/Balearic link.

That was definitely good to read again
I listened to Metallic Spheres the other night. It's just as unmemorable as anything DG has produced in years. On An Island is still about as good as solo Dave gets, I think.

Heya, I need some help from the hivemind identifying a ROIO, I seem to have mislaid it and am a little sketchy on the specifics.

It's from London and I'm quite certain it is one of the Empire Pool dates from '74, what would make it easier to identify however is the taper can be heard for quite a while at the start, he's being quizzed about his gear and, iirc, has a cheerful northern accent. Can anybody help?

MaresNest, Monday, 17 August 2015 20:07 (1 week ago) Permalink

This is from an interview with David Gilmour in latest Mojo. File under: people who seem to have figured out how to live

"Inside the cosy, busy and slightly messy kitchen, his son Joe lolls in a corner chair, playing dextrous arpeggios on an acoustic guitar as Gilmour's author and lyricist wife Polly Samson appears through an adjoining door, smiling and puffing on a roll-up. The couple have lived here for 21 years and together they seem to have settled into an arrangement that benefits both their creative and family lives. "Polly and I sort of have different priority working times," Gilmour says. "She sometimes is writing a book, and I sort of take a back seat. When the kids are at school, I can go in the studio and work. But I've got to be done and wrap up whatever I'm doing so I can make them supper."
