Gilmour was quite emotional, unusually for him, and I've warmed to Nick Mason over the years but the rest of them: Storm Thorgesen, Aubrey Powell, Gerald Scarfe *shiver*

Don't read the book I name-checked upthread if you want to have any good feelings left.

You know? Wish I could build a time machine and go back to those old Floyd days where you could see them play their guts out to a blazed audience for no money.

This goes for pretty much every 60s&70s band.

Watched this. Didn't tell me anything I didn't already know tbh including that R. Waters is a monumnetally self-important ass.

Man, you should have hoired him in the 70s! He's modesty personified by comparison, now!

BTW, the latest Marc Maron & Tom Scharpling show has some of the most hilarious PF commentary ever.

Glad to hear it. Not paying money for it though.

oh my god! I just realized that if you play Pink Floyd's Obscured by Clouds at the same time as you watch Barbet Schroeder's The Valley, it syncs up perfectly!

Since the Floyd I had was a few of the original CDs and I found it at a pretty good price on ebay I got the recent Discovery box set with everything remastered. It's been a good five weeks listening. I never had a copy of Atom Heart Mother as I remember hearing it once and thought it was pretty bad. It's not fantastic, but it definitely has been the big surprise of the box set so far(and I still haven't opened The Wall or the later Cds).

It is interesting to look back at Floyd and they kind of really modeled up what became those classic records over a few years and then really nailed it, as there are moments on Atom Heart Mother and the soundtracks that really builds up to the Dark Side and Wish You We're Here.

I think when Rick Wright kind of froze up and quit really being a big part of the music, while they continued to make music and obviously popular, they lost quite a bit of their sound. His relaxed and melodic and droning keys are so much of what makes the Meddle-Dark Side-Wish You We're Here band and the one that made the soundtracks work. It's really the 'body' of their sound and years on into listening to the band, I'm not so sure not the key piece.

They obviously made some good music once Gilmour and Waters got into their thirty year knife fight from Animals on, but really it's not quite the same.

Don't forget Wright's harmony vocals (and leads) as well. Very missed in the later albums.

dan selzer, Thursday, 28 June 2012 11:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

Listening this morning to live recordings from the Animals tour and the assault on the audience through those vitriolic songs is amazing. A little faster, a little more distortion, the spitting attack of the singing (not to mention the real spit - just starting that Montreal show); it all combines to let the listener feel the frustration and anger and misanthropy. I'm in love.

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 28 June 2012 16:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, Richard Wright was the one that gave Pink Floyd's sound it's grace both with the keys and his voice.

I've recently decided Die Antwoord are pretty brilliant, after watching their latest video, Baby's on Fire, because I thought maybe it was an Eno cover. It's not, but the video is many different kinds of entertaining.

For sale: House where Pink Floyd formed being sold for first time in decades

The north London home where Syd Barrett, Roger Waters and Nick Mason formed Pink Floyd has come up for sale for the first time since they lodged there in the Sixties.

The three-storey house, which has barely been altered since then, is being auctioned on September 20 with a guide price of £1.2 million and needs total refurbishment.

It was at the property — in Stanhope Gardens, Highgate — that the young musicians developed the psychedelic sound and look that was to propel them to superstardom.

The Victorian home was owned until his death this year by their influential former college tutor and landlord Mike Leonard, who was also briefly a member of the band that evolved into Pink Floyd.

Rock experts said the house played a crucial role in the formation of the group that went on to record huge selling concept albums such as Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here and the rock opera The Wall.

Mark Blake, author of Pigs Might Fly: The Inside Story Of Pink Floyd, said: “It was a very good environment for young student musicians to be living. It gave somewhere for them to live and somewhere to rehearse with a sympathetic landlord who did not mind about them making a noise. This is where Pink Floyd started to come together.”

Mason, who became the group’s drummer, and bass guitar player Waters are believed to have moved into the downstairs self-contained flat in September 1963, while early lead singer Barrett arrived about a year later. Barrett was put in charge of catering — with a budget of 20p a day. Keyboard player Richard Wright also lodged at the house.

The dusty interiors still retain much evidence of the avant-garde musical influences that Mr Leonard — a lecturer at Hornsey College of Art — introduced to the rhythm and blues band then known as The Tea Set.

Instruments such as bongo drums, tambourines and a huge homemade xylophone lie scattered around as well as the spotlights, prisms and crystals that were an influence.

In the attic there is a rare Binson Echorec 2 echo unit. The Binson was used by Barrett and later by David Gilmore to develop the Floyd sound. Leonard’s workshop, where he designed and built the complex “lysergenic” lighting systems that contributed to Pink Floyd’s image and featured in a Tomorrow’s World BBC broadcast from the house in 1968, has also survived.

In a recent interview Mason said that the bonnet of his Aston Martin is buried in the overgrown garden.

Chris Coleman Smith, of Savills Auctions, which is handling the sale at the Millennium Hotel in Mayfair, said the sale was a rare opportunity to buy an unmodernised family house in Highgate. He added: “Who knows, we might get some Pink Floyd fan flying in to buy it.”

i'll take the binson off their hands.

I hope the house is in better condition than the stuff inside it. Here's the aforementioned xylophone:
