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.

Whoever did these trance remixes does know jack-shit about Pink Floyd. Floyd is perfect. There's no need to tamper with it. I really feel sorry for everybody who bought any of these CDs. I'm sure there are plenty of legit bands to invest you money into. Do any of you REALLY listen to these so called "remixes"?? Or have you bought these just because it's (remotely) related to Floyd. Here's another question to the people who bought the trance remixes: Do you have all the legit Floyd on CD? If any of you don't, well then complete your REAL floyd collections first. Ficticious Sports, Music From the Body, Wet Dream, Obscured By Clouds, Profiles, More: all of these are 1000000 time better than any of the trance remixes and they are REAL floyd products. How about the Solo Barrett?

Evan Rachel Wood is twenty-three years old, in fine health, as radiant as her pallor will allow, and newly coiffed like Veronica Lake... The song playing at her funeral will be Pink Floyd's "Shine On You Crazy Diamond."

There is an apparent correlation between the track Echoes and the Stargate sequence in that they are both 23 minutes long, and changes in the music seem to follow changes in the images. This has led some Pink Floyd fans to suggest that the coincidence is deliberate and that Pink Floyd composed the Echoes as an alternative soundtrack to the Stargate sequence of 2001. This is very unlikely fucking cool.

Tony falls asleep in front of his home theatre and wakes up as Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon approaches its end. The closing track "Eclipse" is heard when he wakes. Later in the episode, when he is under the shower, he can be heard singing fragments from "Another Brick in the Wall part two" also by Pink Floyd.

may have hit a wall here. not sure how much this rules:
Below is a list of terms and their definitions that are used in the Pink Floyd fan fiction community.
Monstercock: A nickname for Roger "The Eye" Waters' large package.
Glass eye: Roger "The Cock" Waters' glass eye.
Crustless pie: Nick Mason's lovahlovah
Cockfetti: Green and white confetti from Roger Waters' Dark Side of the Moon 2006-2007 tours.
Gil-mo'ass: Nickname of David Gilmour in reference to his rather round ass.
Skullsecks: The act of making love to Roger's empty eye socket. See glass eye.
Fat Bastard: Nickname/fandom term for David Gilmour from the ages of 30 to 61, though more specifically circa 1976 to 2000, when he then officially entered Old Fart territory.
Horseface: Nickname for Roger Waters' extreme bone structure.

it's funny what kicked this wild ride off was seeing how Waters was pissed off about a Pink Floyd wallet being sold

Roger Waters Not Too Pleased

News of the collection website, its wares and prices became an issue of discussion on the NPF Forum on Friday 23rd July where it was questioned whether or not the website was legitimate. That same day, Roger Waters posted note 1 below on his Facebook page and then NPF alerted fans via Twitter and Facebook that the collection was fake. However, Pink Floyd management have just confirmed to me that the collection is official and Roger also posted a follow up note 2 on his Facebook expressing his opinion about the collection. Roger does not seem too enthusiastic about the collection!

Read the notes Roger posted below and feel free to discuss this topic on the forum on the Pink Floyd Platinum Collection thread.

Roger Waters Note 1 - 23rd July 2011 - Link

I have just been made aware of a site called Pink Floyd, Limited edition, Platinum Collection, I have checked it out.

I just want you to know, that none of this crap has anything to do with me. I don't know who is responsible but I shall find out and let you know. What a load of junk! The only good news is that apparently the ludicrous 'Dark Side of The Moon Bowl' has been withdrawn due to the outcry of shocked Pink Floyd fans.

Notwithstanding my disgust, I have to admit I had to chuckle at the irony of the 'Pink Floyd London Wallet'.....'Don't send lire, God don't want small potatoes'

Love Roger

Roger Waters Note 2 - 23rd July 2011 - Link

I promised to let you know when I found out who was responsible for ¨The Platinum Collection¨.

It was David and Nick.

Yes, I was somewhat surprised too.

It's a funny old world and no mistake.

I don't like Pink Floyd the music at all, and to my pleasant surprised neither did the guy running this place! It was playing some nice techno mixed with rap music as I would have picked myself. Weed was good, prices fair, nice place to hang out, and not far of a walk from the middle of town.

There is a Pink Floyd cover band (called Interstellar Overdrive) playing an outdoor show in town on my birthday (Aug 27th).
The fact that they are named after a Syd jam ALMOST makes me want to go. Are they just gonna play Piper at the Gates of Dawn? On the other hand...I hate tribute acts.
I'm not the biggest Floyd head in the world, either. But if I got some guarantee that they'd only play songs off the albums up to and including Meddle, I'd be more tempted.
Has anyone here SEEN Interstellar Overdrive?

Coinciding with reissues of Pink Floyd's 14 studio albums, a box set, and two expanded editions of The Dark Side Of The Moon is a week-long tribute to the band on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon starting Monday. Several bands will be appearing on the show to perform some of Pink Floyd's greatest hits. Perhaps the most notable performance will be Tuesday night when Roger Waters joins Foo Fighters to play "In The Flesh" from The Wall.

Also on tap: The Shins come by Monday to play "Breathe" from Dark Side, MGMT will be there Wednesday to contribute "Lucifer Sam" from The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, country singer Dierks Bentley will sing "Wish You Were Here" on Thursday, and Pearl Jam closes out the week Friday with a planned performance of "Mother" from The Wall. Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason will also be hand Monday for an interview segment, and Waters will talk with Fallon on Tuesday.

here's what the dude remastering the albums said about AMLor (acronyms rule)
SDE: Will A Momentary Lapse of Reason be remixed for an Immersion box set? David Gilmour has mentioned before his interest in “mixing the 80s out of it”

AJ: Interesting point. A Momentary Lapse of Reason is an odd one out inasmuch as it’s the only album that was trying to be ‘of the time’, which now means it sounds dated, rather than timeless. We have started this process a while ago, doing new drums with Nick with a much more “Pink Floyd classic” approach. If & when we’ll pick it up I don’t know.

SDE: (reponse to above): Very interesting…. one assumes that if there was to be an Immersion Edition of A Momentary Lapse of Reason then this process would probably be completed. Is it just the drums that have been redone so far?

AJ: Yes and yes. It was our intention to remove some of the 80′s synths and get more Rick hammond on it. Obviously not possible for him to do it now, but we started the process of pulling some of his playing from gigs of those songs. Just a lot of editing/syncing to do on that, but it should work

the only time i got to see floyd the sky was overcast all day, threatening a storm that would ruin the show at chicago's outdoor soldier field. thankfully no rain fell on the way there or during the first set. after a ten-minute break the wind effects that begin "one of these days" started up . . . and it started to rain. it rained all through "one of these days," not a downpour or anything, but enough to match the storminess of the song. then once the song finished it stopped raining immediately. and that was it for the rest of the night. it was like god was floyd's roadie. that's how much this band rules

Came so close to buying about six of these reissues today. Might still pick 'em up on Friday; Best Buy 3 blocks from my job has the single discs for $9.99 and the doubles for $19.99. Looking at Ummagumma, Meddle, Dark Side, Wish and Animals - considering The Wall but will probably pass.

don't know! i actually have very few floyd albums on CD. vinyl/dubbed cassettes mostly.
but here's a review from amazon
Pink Floyd , is a hard band to EQ. Turn up the highs and lose the lows. It also works the other way around. So having to turn UP your stereo up to massive sound levels of volume just to hear more detail , rarely works [SEE : Steve Hoffman].
JAMES GUTHRIE and Co. , have found a perfect balance between the two.
ANIMALS , has always been remastered way too quiet. Even those Japanese versions left you wanting just a bit.
Animals , was very well recorded to begin with. It just needed a TAD more volume to put it over the edge.
So this 2011 remaster has a little more volume and everything sounds just amazing.
If you liked the sound of the remastered BEATLES' volume and sound , you will just love this. Also , if you loved the volume / cleanliness and clearness of , ECHOS : The Best Of Pink Floyd [e.g. SHEEP] you will also love this version. OR , if you loved Peter Gabriel's 2010 remasters you will just love this regular CD. If you are expecting , LED ZEPPELIN : MotherShip , kind of volume you will be disappointed. As I have written before ; this CD has the perfect balance between too quiet and too loud.
I can also apply this review too the other regular CDs called , The Dark Side of the Moon , Wish You Were Here and Meddle [all a little louder]. Each at a different volume , the sound volume increase suited for each particular CD. Some more volume , more clarity for each different instrument and all wonderful!!!
A Momentary Lapse Of Reason , sounds a little better than the 2005 version which also had some re-mixing done by , Guthrie.
SO , this is not just another rip off and is well worth your money.

tylerw, Wednesday, 28 September 2011 16:47 (six years ago) Permalink

Haha, wtf.

What's so special about a Pink Floyd 8-track? Well the answer is simple: There's a guitar solo performed by British prog-rocker Snowy White that is only on the 8-track release of the album! On the usual release of the album/cd/tape, "Pigs on the Wing Part 1" starts the album, then you have POTW part 2 at the end of the album. However, on the 8-track, both parts are bridged together with this special guitar solo. Because of the endless tape loop on the 8-track cartridge, a bridge was needed so that Pt. 2 could be segued straight after Pt. 1, creating a continuous version of the album. Snowy toured with the band a lot in those days as a second guitarist. Gilmour declined doing the solo and offered it to White. This tape has taken on mythic proportions among both 8-track collectors and fans of Pink Floyd.

Alright that song is pretty gooood. Why does nobody ever mention 'more' when talking about Pink Floyd? It sounds like it predates the ambitions they were going for in Meedle. It's interesting to hear their sound evolving from More into a definite musical entity responsible for one of the best album runs in rock history: meedle>dsotm>animals>wish you were here>the wall. But then again, few bands can RULE as hard as PF.

I don't know if I agree its the best run. More like diminishing returns. dsotm is better than wish you were here which is better than animals which is better than the wall which is barely tolerable!

More has several essential PF classics, but also a lot of soundtracky noodling that gets skipped. For the good stuff though, it's always been one of my faves. The two hard rockers (Nile and Ibiza) and the ballads/psyche-folk stuff, Cirrus Minor, Crying Song, Green is the Colour, Cymbaline are all totally essential.

The other night I noticed an interesting irony of Pink Floyd: their formative work seems to resonate most with me the older I get, while their "mature" work I haven't wanted to hear since middle school. That is, older me finds much to love in Piper->Dark Side, increasingly less from WYWH->The Wall. MLOR I consider its own thing. Division Bell I've only heard in the context of that nicely sequenced two-disc best of.

what doesn't rule is the latest 'rolling stone' cover feature on 'dark side.' what a bummer! only interview questions i'm interested in hearing waters, mason, and gilmour answer at this point are 1) why do you think your band rules so much? 2) which of your albums is your favorite? and 3) how awesome was it to play those songs on stage, higher than fuck, night after night?

It would rule if Gilmour answered only in musical notes, or just by reference to songs (e.g. "uhhhh, the last couple of minutes of "Fearless")

If it was your T-shirt, at what point did you ‘realise the error of your ways’?

John Lydon: “I’ve no idea where I got it from, it being green, which was an oddity . . . not my colour. It might have been something I nicked off a stall.”

Are there any exceptions in Pink Floyd’s back catalogue?

JL: Listen, you’d have to be daft as a brush to say you didn’t like Pink Floyd. They’ve done great stuff. They’ve done rubbish too. Dark Side of the Moon I love. But I go right back to when they were with Syd Barrett. But I grew up with all kinds of music.

Saucerful of Secrets?

JL: What I didn’t like about them was the pretentiousness. There was an aura of ‘Oh, we’re so great there’s no room for anybody else.’ But you know, I’ve met members of the band and I get on alright with them because they’re not like that at all. There was kind of a misreading and a misrepresentation in the press and they’re not holier than thou. In fact they are just like thee and thou. [laughs]

They may be like thee John, but I’m just trying to figure out in what way Roger Waters is like me and I’m hitting a blank.

JL: All I know is that his wife was one of my younger brothers’ art school teachers. At Tollington Park School, Finsbury Park. Dave Gilmour I’ve met a few times and I just think he’s an alright bloke. Two years ago when they came to LA, they asked me would I come on and do a bit of Dark Side Of The Moon with them and the idea thrilled me no end. Well no, it would have been very, very neat but it stunk a little in my head of 'What am I doing here?' I came so close to doing it . . . it felt like I was trying to set myself up as some kind of pretentious person. I’m very wary of the jam session end of things. I just don’t want to do it. But I wanted to do it. But just not when 20,000 people were there. I’d have gone to a studio and played around with it there. But not for the bigger picture. Privately. I’d love to go into the studio and do something with the album with them.

What bugs me about the RS cover story -- which I quickly read today, so maybe I need to re-read -- is how the writer regurgitates the idea that the post-Syd/pre-DSotM albums are deeply flawed. He even disses Ummagumma. But that's my favorite period!

QuantumNoise, Monday, 3 October 2011 00:45 (six years ago) Permalink

Considering the albums from this period were also reissued, it would be nice to read a new feature story that tears apart the popular history of Floyd by delving into said period, at least give it credence its own on right, rather than dismissing it as nothing more than transitional.

About five or six years ago, Mojo did run a long feature story about PF from 1969 to 1972 and was subsequently expanded into a separate stand-alone "all Pink Floyd" issue. It's worth tracking down.

Listened to Obscured By Clouds yesterday, having not heard it in a long while--there are some great atmospheric pieces on that one, especially the first track, which could have been a lot longer. One thing I like about the pre-dark side albums is that they tend to be a little scrappier, willing to try things that might not work, and production-wise, rougher around the edges. In short they sound like a band just playing some tunes, no big deal.

Also Obscured by Clouds has PF at it's most fun-lovin' and freewheelin':

That's exactly why I love MORE and OBSCURED BY CLOUDS so much, but really anything from around that time showed a band that was willing to try new things, particularly live. Then DSOTM came out and all that came after, with increasing levels of complexity and studio dependence until all that was interesting and spontaneous was basically squeezed out of the works.

Try to track down any of the live shows from early 1973. PF was opening with "Obscured By Clouds/When You're In" and extending it out to 10+ minutes. Especially recommended is March 13, 1973 at Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto which takes it out to 15min.

Yeah. That boot has a big part in my upcoming Pink Floyd bootleg/recontextualization, in which I visit an alternate universe where Pink Floyd was a highly regarded but obscure psychedelic folk rock band from the late 60s. It will compile music from both official releases and bootlegs, it will have hand printed letterpress covers, and it will be called either "Another Pink World" or "Everything's Gone Pink". Dead serious about this. Still debating to do it as a simple comp or actually blend tracks together and add additional pastoral sound effects. It will rule.

The Red Queen Theme from those sessions kind of blew my mind, not because it's the greatest thing ever, but like, I thought I had heard most of their songs, you know?

Right, I hae searched but I have not found. So, here is a tale:

My wife's mother was looking in an antiquey market at some Laurel and Hardy memorabilia, where she got on chatting to a bloke who was also looking. "You into this sort of stuff" he askes. "Well, it's more for my husband, he's a big fan. I like them, but I'm more into the modern stuff. Guns and Roses, Pink Floyd, that sort of thing" she replies. At which point the bloke looks a bit puzzled. "Pink Floyd? Um, that's us lot!" he clarifies. For it is Dave Gilmore.
"Ah, I didn't recognise you, sorry!"
"Well, I look a bit different from the old photos thesedays" he smiles.
"Ah, well, then again so do I" she says.

Anyway, when she told us this story, my wife looked very puzzled, and said that she'd never been told that story before! So, it must have been some years ago..

Guys (particularly tyler), what would you consider the essential bootlegs for someone ready to dive into those murky waters? I've followed your fairly typical Floyd arc (at least as far as people my age seem to do) - loved the shit out of them ages 14-17, then decided they were bloated shit from about 18-22, rediscovered how awesome they were for a couple years and OD'ed, then ignored them in favor of other music for the past decade. Now I think I'm ready to delve into the bootlegs.

jon /via/ chi 2.0, Tuesday, 4 October 2011 15:28 (six years ago) Permalink

I'd go for The BBC Archives for the post-Syd/pre-Dark Side era, and Animal Instincts (the Oakland show) for latter day angry and falling apart Floyd. I'm slightly irrational about the Oakland show; it was the first Floyd boot I ever found, a three lp set called A Great Set. Awesome cover, though not safe for work.

EZ Snappin, Tuesday, 4 October 2011 15:51 (six years ago) Permalink

not even that much of an expert on floyd bootlegs - i'd say just dive in. yeah, those bbc live shows are amazing (that's basically what I linked to above). seek out some of the pre-dark side dark side shows, where they're trying out arrangements of that material. i have a manchester 74 show that i like for the early versions of animals tracks, but that might be made redundant by the live wembley stuff being put out officially. for syd era, what syd wants has some wonderful tracks, but there are others covering that period too.

Three Different Ones to start with...

Brain Damage Podcast: http://braindamage.libsyn.com/
Mostly bootlegs, rare tracks, and ephemera. He's been posting a lot of Waters' recent live Wall shows, but if you dig backwards there's lots of good stuff. I've been using his show as a bootleg preview. The "Floyd's Worst Moments" show is a fun one - battles with power outages, rainstorms, and Waters' psychodrama.

Harvested: http://www.harvested.org/
Bootleg group that releases definitive (complete show, speed-corrected, and mastered) versions oF the more well-known bootlegs out there. There's no audio downloads from the site, but if you search "Harvested" + their HRV release number you're bound to find it on a torrent, slsk, etc. site.

Yeeshkul: http://www.yeeshkul.com/

The BBC shows are the first ones to look for. I've seen them under different names, but Meddled (1971-09-30) is probably the best. The Massed Gadgets of Auximenies (1969-04-14), Animal Instincts (1977-05-03), and Interstellar Fillmore (1970-04-29) would be the next ones.

Other faves: Who Was Trained Not To Spit On The Fan?, Interstellar Zappadrive (Zappa guests on guitar for a 20 minute "Interstellar Overdrive")

Listening to MEDDLED right now and it's pretty damn good. Hard to pick a favorite between those two. I really love the stripped-down "Atom Heart Mother" with just the band minus the bells and whistles from the Paris Theatre show (same year). But really, why choose? Love both equally.

As for prog-ness of The Floyd, for all the tricks and effects, none of it ever felt like i was showing off, y'know? Gilmour is a pretty understated player, at least in terms of the notes being played. Sure, he loved to put the sound right into outer space, but all of the notes belonged exactly where they were. No unnecessary scales.

Stopped yesterday and picked up a fuck-ton of these. Piper, Meddle, Atom Heart Mother, DSOM, The Wall, Wish You Were Here and Animals. Just started listening to The Wall here at work and it sounds incredible. The remaster has cleared up a lot of the song-to-song volume change problems from previous CD issues, so far as I can tell. And there's so much going on in the background of these songs that I've never really paid attention to before.

Since I haven't listened to them since their original releases, is there any reason for me to give Momentary Lapse and Division Bell another chance? I remember liking "Learning to Fly" and "Dogs of War" at the time, but the rest of them have completely left my memory.

'the wall' is amazing. never got the haters

I think Alex in NYC said it best, that it was a great album, but the desire to ever sit through listening to it in its entirety ever again is gone. Side Three with all those war songs…

But you know, maybe, if it indeed sounds so much better, I'd be inclined to give it another shot. Now that I think about it, one of the biggest complaints I had about The Wall was that you couldn't hear shit. Imagine listening to "Nobody's Home" on that double-cassette version they sold at Camelot Music, and you get the gist of what I'm saying.

Just remembered how the end of "Hey You" ends the same way sorta as "Dogs" ("We Fall, fall, fall, fall, fall…. Dragged down by the stone, stone, stone, stone, stone, stone, stone…..")

Haha, OK, after the guitar solo in "Hey You," you can hear (Waters? Gilmour?) totally muff it at the end of one of those giant slides up the bass neck.

xp PP, it really does sound tremendously better. I've got headphones on in my office, so that certainly helps, but compared to the previous CD issue of this album, it's like the difference between an Edison cylinder and FLAC.

The thing about the Wall, and I'm generally one of the haters but am more and more willing to concede that there are great moments of music in there...it that there's something so childishly pretentious in it's angst and bombast. Stuff that sounded so intense and menacing to me as a kid sounds like bad musical theater to me, like the worst aspects of Tommy blown up. I found it funny while watching the Jimmy Fallon week, hearing Foo Fighters do In The Flesh, how awesome I thought it sounded, being played by a real live rock and roll band with real rock energy, and not the 1979 studio gloss.

Another thing that has always occurred to me, which I've never said in public, is how much better the avant garde of post-punk was at the same thing. When I think about 78/79 in music and I think about things like Unknown Pleasures, Chairs MIssing, Fear of Music...they all express the same dark alienation, but they're young and raw artists, not a bunch of seasoned out of touch studio musicians. There's certain chord progressions, like in Day of the Lords by Joy Division, which always makes me thing of the foreboding "intense" stuff on the wall, but it sounds so much more real. The playing effects me more. The lyrics are better.

I think the Wall could've used a lot of editing, a lot less Roger Waters and a lot more punk rock. Maybe if instead of performing it as a ROCK OPERA© Waters should put together a small rock band and tour it in clubs. It'd be more fitting than an entire arena crossing their arms in faux-fascist salute while not actually getting the message...like I did in 1987 at both the Radio KAOS tour and the Momentary Lapse of Reason tour (yes, I saw both, and I was 12 years old.

See, in 78/79, I was a 9 year old kid stationed with my family on an Army base in Germany, and I just didn't have any exposure to the punk and postpunk that was happening at the time. The most cutting-edge music I heard on a regular basis was when New Wave bands made their way onto "American Top 40." I never heard Joy Division until I was in college! But I heard Floyd all the time, so the album has a lot of personal meaning for me.

They could - and should! - do a massive Barrett Era boxset. The first two albums combined with the singles (A + B-sides), Vegetable Man, Scream Thy Last Scream, an abundance of live material, demo's, etc. Although I very much want a Meddle and an Animals boxset too, at least give us this. That would rule, even more then they already do.

Soundtrack box sounds good too. More, Obscured and everything in between (Zabriskie (including sessions), the Committee, the 1969 moon landing session, etc.)

In fact, I just want all of these songs, somehow, somewhere: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_unreleased_Pink_Floyd_songs

Sebastian (Royal Mermaid Mover), Saturday, 8 October 2011 14:48 (six years ago) Permalink

Problem is, if the current "immersion" sets are anything to go by, the emphasis on future boxes will be 5.1 surround yadda yadda rather than previously-unreleased stuff. For instance, out of the 10-12 discs that make up the combined DSOTM and WYWH immersion sets, there are a total of TWO songs from the unreleased "Household Objects" project.

Tarfumes The Escape Goat, Saturday, 8 October 2011 15:24 (six years ago) Permalink

Yeah, my fear exactly.

I was very excited when I heard about the project, but up til now it has been very disappointing.

I hope that every album at least gets a release with bonus-disc, as that will more focus on live material and unreleased tracks/versions than an uber audio surround super mix experience.

There is a Meddle song in there, a Wish one, etc. It also lays focus on the beauty of Gilmour's voice, so often obscured in the past by Waters gnarl. Overall the album is pleasantly boring - just as Gilmour's latest solo release -, while the last song is a true Pink Floyd classic.

Yes. The entire box can (could) be found online. Lossless, even.

The Household Objects song is a bit daft. No substance at all. The Richard Wright and Roger Waters demos are very beautiful. The early mix of DSOTM is interesting to listen too once, but the final version of the album is better in many, many ways. The Travel Sequence and Morality Sequence tracks are already known from many bootlegs. And rule!

Really interesting to hear that. Sounded good as a one-off, the violin fits nicely with the barroom vibe.

Janet Snakehole (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 17 November 2011 07:00 (six years ago) Permalink

The album's title Meddle is a play on words; a medal, and to interfere.[15] Storm Thorgerson originally suggested a close-up shot of a baboon's anus for the album cover photograph. He was over-ruled by the band, who informed him via an inter-continental telephone call while on tour in Japan that they would rather have "an ear underwater".[18] The cover image was photographed by Bob Dowling. The image represents an ear, underwater, collecting waves of sound (represented by ripples in the water).[15] Thorgerson has expressed dissatisfaction with the cover, claiming it to be his least favourite Pink Floyd album sleeve: "I think Meddle is a much better album than its cover".[19] Aubrey Powell (Thorgerson's colleague) shares his sentiments—"Meddle was a mess. I hated that cover. I don't think we did them justice with that at all; it's half-hearted."[20] The gatefold contains a group photograph of the band (Floyd's last until 1987's A Momentary Lapse of Reason).

- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meddle#Packaging

I have to say I agree. The only reason I tolerate the cover and have grown to even like it is because Meddle is by far my favorite Pink Floyd album. I wonder if it would have reached a more canonical status amongst second rate fans if it had a cover as iconic as 'dark side', 'animals' 'wish you were here' and even 'division bell' or 'atom heart mother'.

Moka, Thursday, 17 November 2011 08:05 (six years ago) Permalink

OMG

London's Daily Express is reporting that Pink Floyd will reunite to play the closing ceremonies of the London Olympics next summer.

An "insider" told the paper that "It's long been made clear it would take something very special to get Pink Floyd back together again and it doesn't get any bigger than the Olympics.

'Like Sir Paul, they have been a major part of the nation's culture over the past 40 years and it will be very fitting that they're involved when London is on show to the world. It's hoped everything can be confirmed in the coming weeks."

Paul McCartney is rumored to be playing the event's opening ceremony.

Roger Waters left the group in 1985 after twenty years together and, even though the band carried on, fans still consider the classic lineup the "real" Floyd. They returned to the stage in 2005 for Live 8 but have not played together as a unit since. The surviving members are Waters, David Gilmore and Nick Mason.

tylerw, Wednesday, 4 January 2012 17:20 (five years ago) Permalink

OMG!!!!

Rocker David Gilmour has squashed reports suggesting the living members of Pink Floyd will reunite for a London Olympics spectacular.

The guitar great has been quick to respond to a London Evening Standard story, which linked the band to the summer (2012) sports extravaganza, insisting there's nothing to the report.

A representative for the rocker says, "David Gilmour can confirm that there is no truth in recent media speculation about Pink Floyd reuniting to perform for the 2012 London Olympics."

If true, the show would have marked the band's first official performance together since Live 8 in 2005.

Gilmour and former bandmates Nick Mason and Roger Waters teamed up for a brief reunion at Waters' "The Wall" concert in London last year (May 11) - but all parties declared the get together was a one-off.

Roger Taylor and Brian May have also been linked to an Olympics-launching spectacular, as has Sir Paul McCartney. At present, no big names have been confirmed for concerts to launch the Games but dance music duo Underworld have been appointed the event's musical directors.

Astoria is a grand houseboat, adapted as a recording studio by its owner, Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour. It is moored on the River Thames near Hampton Court. Gilmour purchased the boat in 1986, because he "spent half of [his] life in recording studios with no windows, no light, but on the boat there are many windows, with beautiful scenery on the outside".

I keep checking out those recent remasters (take 3) of the Pink Floyd and would really love to have those live tracks, but it looks like they split the show up onto like 3 cds.

It always seems weird to me that there really isn't a single classic period Pink Floyd live album other than Ummagumma, which is really before the really big albums. They had to be recording some of it.

I think Waters is probably to blame for this, he always said he wanted the live show to be an experience for those who were there and that a recording wouldn't do justice to it. I know he nixed the release of the Wall live video footage and I wouldn't be surprised if he always vetoed live albums as well (other than the ones now coming out)

Google "Animal Instincts" for the definitive copy.

The Oakland show rules not only for its sound quality but also for Gilmour's guitar heroics on SOYCD (Parts 6-9) and the final appearance of "Careful With That Axe Eugene", played as an encore.

Also, no spitting or sulking, as with the final (Montreal) show.

Ok, really wanna hear that.

Naive Teen Idol, Friday, 3 February 2012 12:53 (five years ago) Permalink

OK, you lot would know:

I recently bought a Pink Floyd box set by accident on ebay (put a stupidly low bid on it, won it, found out is was a genuine UK edition not a Chinese knock-off, anyway close bracket back to the question)

Surprised by how much of this I like. Obviously avoiding "Wall", "Moon", "Wish" and the last two. (not played "Cut" as yet)

The only PF album I remember 'contemporaneously' was "Animals" which became a fixture on the 6th form stereo when I couldn't get it removed in favour of "Oh Bondage Up Yours" and the like..

The lines about Mary Whitehouse seem to have changed dramatically. From the positively hateful "you fucked up old hag" to "house proud town mouse" (which does rhyme at least). Seeing as how the next line talks about 'love hidden' or something, the 'newer' line works better.

So, when did that change?

Mark G, Friday, 10 February 2012 10:16 (five years ago) Permalink

The original version contains both lines. Maybe yours has been edited?

ban this sick stunt (anagram), Friday, 10 February 2012 10:26 (five years ago) Permalink

This is it, see:

The last half of "Sheep" I like a lot.

I've not heard "Shine on you crazy di" a million times, maybe five, but I could happily never hear it again.

jammed out to Momentary Lapse last week, hit that Avalon groove, second side pretty underrated I think.

This seems a brave opinion -- and one I kinda agree with. I hadn't listened to this record in a long, long time until this week - but even if the tracks don't particularly distinguish themselves as songs, (Ezrin's?) atmospherics remain pretty impressive. As a 15 year-old, I enjoyed them. But even now, I find tracks like "Yet Another Movie" pretty appealing -- the orchestral synth washes, the pulsing sequencers, the droney way Gilmour's voice is double tracked and harmonized. Not a lot of stuff sounds like this.

Naive Teen Idol, Wednesday, 22 February 2012 05:18 (five years ago) Permalink

Doh! I never made the Avalon connection with AMLOR... It's so obvious even Manzanera has a co-write.

One of the versions of the "Learning To Fly" single had something called a (DYOL) mix of "Terminal Frost" that had no guitars on it, just the piano + backing track. (DYOL = Do Your Own Lead) Quite nice piece of ambience.

Cosey Fanni Tutti talks about how much Pink Floyd rules

Pink Floyd - Set the Controls for the Heart of The Sun
I saw Pink Floyd quite a few times in the late ‘60s, one of which was at an open air festival. They played this and the notes drifted across the field and I felt consumed by the sound. I wanted to be able to generate that feeling myself, to feel it again and to be able for others to have that overwhelmingly wonderful feeling. It was more about my awakening of the physical power of sound than the track itself, so I guess this track represents another pivotal epiphany moment.

tylerw, Friday, 24 February 2012 16:55 (five years ago) Permalink

The first time I tried Pandora, my seed song was "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun" (which rules) and settled back for the stream of deep hypnotic bliss to follow. The next song Pandora played was the Captain & Tenille's "Love Will Keep Us Together."

I am too.

Got around to listening to all the extra stuff on The Wall immersion and... they're interesting. The sound quality is of course better than the various Under Construction versions out there and I hadn't yet heard some of the band demos. Liking one of the early "Another Brick In The Wall" demos that's almost like a Pete Townshend acoustic number with this tremendous VCS3 sound in the front. Plus it's always interesting to hear Gilmour sing Waters' lines on "Comfortably Numb"

From last year, but an interesting follow-up on the "mixing the 80s out of AMLOR" w/PF sound engineer Andy Jackson

SDE: Will A Momentary Lapse of Reason be remixed for an Immersion box set? David Gilmour has mentioned before his interest in “mixing the 80s out of it”

AJ: Interesting point. A Momentary Lapse of Reason is an odd one out inasmuch as it’s the only album that was trying to be ‘of the time’, which now means it sounds dated, rather than timeless. We have started this process a while ago, doing new drums with Nick with a much more “Pink Floyd classic” approach. If & when we’ll pick it up I don’t know.

SDE: (reponse to above): Very interesting…. one assumes that if there was to be an Immersion Edition of A Momentary Lapse of Reason then this process would probably be completed. Is it just the drums that have been redone so far?

AJ: Yes and yes. It was our intention to remove some of the 80′s synths and get more Rick hammond on it. Obviously not possible for him to do it now, but we started the process of pulling some of his playing from gigs of those songs. Just a lot of editing/syncing to do on that, but it should work

I'd never really paid attention to the tribute bands, but I have to admire Interstellar Factory from Italy. It's cool that they're only playing 1968-1972 Floyd, but it's GREAT that they covered "Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast," complete with tea break.

The Pink Floyd Channel launches on SiriusXM

Our friends in the US have another treat in store - well, those who have access to Sirius XM Radio, that is. In the extensive Roger Waters interview last night with Jim Ladd, Roger revealed that "The Pink Floyd Channel" will launch on their subscription service. It will feature "vintage concerts, special interviews and the entire Pink Floyd catalogue".

It is due to launch on May 25th, which is the start of the US Memorial Day weekend (May 28th is a public holiday). It goes live at midday ET on the 25th, and will run through to Monday, May 28th on channel 27. The channel will also be available Friday, June 29th through to Monday, July 9th on Sirius channel 142 and XM channel 43. Additionally, "The Pink Floyd Channel" will be available as a 24/7 channel online on channel 802 and through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smartphones and mobile devices beginning Friday, June 29th for an extended period.

The channel will not just feature Pink Floyd's music, but also solo albums by Pink Floyd members Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Richard Wright, Nick Mason and Syd Barrett, "live concerts, rarities, demo versions of classic Pink Floyd songs and studio outtakes". Listeners will also hear an in-depth interview conducted by Jim Ladd with Roger Waters, as well as with David Gilmour and fellow Pink Floyd member Nick Mason.

"The Pink Floyd Channel" will be curated and hosted by SiriusXM host Jim Ladd, the legendary free-form DJ who has been conducting interviews with Pink Floyd since 1979. Ladd was also part of Roger Waters' album Radio KAOS and subsequent tour. Ladd hosts his own, eponymous weekday show on Deep Tracks, channel 27.

"I can't think of a better home for the Pink Floyd catalogue, and all the solo stuff, than SiriusXM," said Roger Waters. "How cool for all our fans and what a great way to introduce the work to new generations of listeners."

fukn Floyd man

of all the bands that I enjoy listening to, there's just something about Floyd where 'being in the mood' is irrelevant because as soon as you hear it you're instantly in full receiving mode. Every song has a favorite part, and the whole thing, Dark Side, just lifts you out of yourself. (And no I didn't smoke a damn thing lol). 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.

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.

earlnash, Thursday, 28 June 2012 03:04 (five years ago) Permalink

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 (five 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 (five 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.

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.”

A friend of mine was a huge Syd Barrett freak in the 60s, and was overjoyed when he saw that The Pink Floyd was coming to his hometown (Ann Arbor). Said overjoyment turned to disappointment as soon as the band hit the stage. "Who's that guy?! That's not Syd!"

A Dutch female announcer, to be precise. There are many different versions from this show out there, but the one recorded in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam has the best quality me thinks, because it was a professional radio broadcast.

The group first referred to themselves as the Pink Floyd Sound in late 1965. Barrett created the name on the spur of the moment when he discovered that another band, also called the Tea Set, were to perform at one of their gigs.[20] The name is derived from the given names of two blues musicians whose Piedmont blues records Barrett had in his collection, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council.[21]

Found out this week that HMV in town has a campaign on the 2011 remasters where single discs are €9.99 and doubles are €14.99. So have subsequently wondered about a few things, which of the lps are essential for one, I'm thinking everything 67-72 though I have the 2007 3cd box of Piper already.
Also what the story was on EMI dumping (or was it selling off?) the Floyd back catalogue which I heard about somewhere else and I wasn't sure how it effected the Discovery series, or if the idea had been dropped.

Also last year when the Discovery series began there was talk of a psychedelic era Immersion box, presumably covering the 1st 2lps, the surrounding singles, various demoes and outtakes and live material. When it was being talked about last year I think it was projected for around this time this year, if not earlier. I haven't heard any thing new about it and wondered if the series was still ongoing. Anybody know?

not many ilxors agree w/me but i infinitely prefer the Waters era to the Barrett era so for me the essential run is Dark Side through to The Wall.

XP - Stevolende, the back catalogue is in limbo at the moment, Universal don't get to keep PF as part of their big EMI buyout, so it depends what happens to EMI over the next year or so. PF's licensing deal ends in about 18 months anyway so the archive could go anywhere.
The was and Early Years box set in planning, from Saucerful to Ummagumma iirc (or maybe including AHM) with maybe some live material (that Syd-era club gig that's been making the rounds recently and Amsterdam '69) but it has been shelved for the moment.

oh dear, early morning typing, duh

music of the squares (MaresNest), Sunday, 11 November 2012 11:38 (five years ago) Permalink

From Saucerful to Ummagumma? I thought it was going to cover the Piper era and earlier, talk mentioned several 65 & 66 demoes from what I've seen.

So, I was just wondering where that left the Discovery material, if what was going on sale at the moment was being sold off prior to deletion. just to clear warehouses etc.
Well I picked up a couple of titles and may pick up Atom Heart Mother & Ummagumma yet. No sign of either Saucer or Obscured By Clouds though.

Stevolende, Sunday, 11 November 2012 11:42 (five years ago) Permalink

I don't think the Discovery series will dry up anytime soon, it's a slow moving process.

There was a bunch of early demos in Mason's archive so I'm told, I don't know if they were part of the plan or if Piper was to be included in the early set given that it has been fairly well represented. I was lobbying for the inclusion of the mono Saucerful as the Stereo mix is all over the place.

music of the squares (MaresNest), Sunday, 11 November 2012 11:49 (five years ago) Permalink

There was also talk of a sympathetically remixed Obscured by Clouds, I didn't think it sounded *that* bad.

I had Atom Heart Mother on CD back then, never thought it'd end up by my favourite.

Never bothered with More and Obscured By Clouds back then, due to wrongly thinking the non-remastered CDs would be a waste of money.

I'm alright with "Piper" up to "Obscured", and "Animals", the rest I view with trepidation...

http://www.brain-damage.co.uk/latest/nick-mason-helps-save-london-music-store.html

Nick Mason has stepped in to help save Foote's, the historic London music shop where he bought his first ever drum kit. Nick, along with the store's sales director, Rob Wilson, are buying the business (which will now re-open in a new location at 41 Store Street, Bloomsbury, London) from the family who has owned it since the '30s.

"I was very disappointed when I heard that Foote's was going to close because it is one of my great memories of being a young, budding drummer was going to the original shop and buying my very first kit for £7.50," he told ITV news. "The thing about a drum shop is that it's the place where information gets passed around. You hear about new things; if you need a drum lesson, the best place to go is probably a drum shop and ask them for advice. There's a drum culture that is centered on drum shops."

A slight disappointment for budding drummers who think they'll be buying from Nick himself: "I think I will try not to be too hands on. I doubt I'll be much help really…I don't think I'm going to be behind the counter on a regular basis."

calstars, Saturday, 26 January 2013 03:00 (four years ago) Permalink

It's funny, but there hasn't been a lot of genuine unreleased or alternate material that has surfaced, some of it was trickling out slowly on the box sets. I could be wrong, but I'm guessing that there wasn't a lot of surplus music made.

If you haven't heard them, the most salient is the Zabriskie Point sessions material that was never used or released.

i was listening to Piper on headphones recently and the super wide stereo mixing leaves decent chunks of some tracks completely silent on one side, it is most distracting, I wonder if Piper and Saucerful were both mixed Mono first/Stereo later like the Beatles.

MaresNest, Tuesday, 29 January 2013 16:11 (four years ago) Permalink

Pretty sure Piper was; the mono mix sounds more carefully considered (and fucking tremendous -- it enhanced my appreciation of this record like no other alternate mix of anything, ever).

Tarfumes The Escape Goat, Tuesday, 29 January 2013 16:19 (four years ago) Permalink

^^^me too. I mean the Beatles and Village Green mono mixes are amazing but I already loved those records. The Piper mono mix takes a record I never quite loved and brings it finally to life.

re: odds and sods discs, I used to have an 'import' version of Relics that appended the Syd-era singles tracks. Wish I hadn;t sold that.

LOVE "Fearless." I had a roommate who was a massive fan of post-DSOTM Floyd, but ignored everything prior. When I played him "Fearless," not only did he hate what he assumed was a twee indie band, but assumed I was lying/joking when I told him it was Floyd. It took him about 7-8 listens to finally admit it *might* be Floyd.

I was digging into 'momentary lapse' and 'division bell' kinda rece, trying to see if there were overlooked treasures the likes of which soto might rep for, but they're almost unbearable. I had ok memories of the former but the two consensus salvagables from that one ('learning to fly' and 'turning away') are weak. The latter in partic sounds more like that crappy Styx gulf war anthem than the Floyd.
