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.

MaresNest, Friday, 1 September 2017 23:28 (two months ago) Permalink

moka - well, since my day job is data analysis i did a breakdown of songs by relative ranking, and the top five were:

wish you were here (101.5)
dsotm (101.4)
animals (95.25)
atom heart mother (87.4)
meddle (83 1/3)

piper ranked seventh, below obscured by clouds

obviously my methodology is flawed, since it gives equal weight to "seamus" and "echoes", but it's still interesting data.

what do i actually listen to? usually the less popular stuff. i basically never listen to dsotm or the wall, except in weird cover versions. i listen to "animals" a fair bit. i also listen to "more" a lot because it's some of the least demanding music imaginable. i listen to "piper" but only in mono. i listen to lots of bootlegs too. especially the bbc stuff, but also lots of shitty audience tapes, particularly from 1970-1971 (pretty much any performance from those years puts the live half of "ummagumma" to shame). i'll wax rhapsodic about the version of "main theme from more" played on jan 18, 1970 in croydon, even though the sound quality is unlistenably poor, or insist to you that the version of "the journey" played in plumpton is a much better performance than the better-known concertgebouw version.

i put together a comp cd of some of my favorite floyd cuts in, i don't know, 2013 sometime. tracklist:

a pillow of winds
pigs on the wing (8-track)
crying song
see emily play
the narrow way part 3 (bbc)
wot's... uh the deal
crumbling land
sheep
lucifer sam
point me at the sky
fearless
the embryo (bbc 1970)
rain in the country
comfortably numb (gilmour's demo)
morning glory (from "alan's psychedelic breakfast")

...which represents what i listen to decently enough.

It Would Be So Nice
Take Up Thy Stethoscope and Walk
Ibiza Bar
Chapter 24
Point Me at the Sky
See Emily Play
Jugband Blues
Arnold Layne
Candy and a Current Bun
Corporal Clegg
The Nile Song
Green Is the Colour

- Side 2
The Grand Vizier's Garden Party, Part 1: Entrance
Astronomy Domine (Ummagumma live version)
Let There Be More Light
Embryo
Sysyphus, Part 3
Grantchester Meadow
Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun
A Saucerful of Secrets
The Grand Vizier's Garden Party, Part 3: Exit

That's is genuinely very interesting.

dance cum rituals (Moka), Saturday, 2 September 2017 22:39 (two months ago) Permalink

Correction to my Floyd tape above:

What I assumed was "Sysyphus, Part 3" when I wrote out the track list way back when (because the vinyl didn't show track separations between the 4 parts), turned out in the CD era to be the first 3 minutes of Part 4: quiet keyboard and birdsong which leads handily into "Grantchester Meadow."

Also, the "Grand Vizier: Entrance" excerpt is only the flute part.

(Because you're all going to fire up Audacity and recreate this mix. Don't forget to tighten up the gap between "Corporal Clegg" and "The Nile Song"--1 second at most!)

Hideous Lump, Saturday, 2 September 2017 23:18 (two months ago) Permalink

Made a Spotify playlist of this - it hangs together way better than you'd think! Shows the continuity between Syd-era Floyd and the next few albums. Nice one, HL.

pre-Opel I used to have a Syd Barrett bootleg that used the Robyn Hitchcock cartoon of Vegetable Man as a cover. I'd give anything to have it back if only for nostalgic reasons.

It also had Singing a Song in the Morning on it.

akm, Monday, 11 September 2017 21:45 (two months ago) Permalink

that take RULES!

one of my favorite paragraphs in rushomancy's great list was:

After a minute of a riff played through a distant radio - a sound effect which is beyond "working" or "not working" and is simply now just a part of our nature - the lyrics open with a series of comparisons which grow gradually more incongrous and off-kilter. Heaven and hell - we can understand these things. Blue skies from... pain? Did you mean rain? Was that a typo? Did I trade hot ashes for trees? The emotional resonance of the words is clear, but the order... are hot ashes heaven? Are trees hell?

'Choppy' would be an understatement, especially in terms of characterization of main dude. Absolutely beautiful footage, though; Schroeder and his cinematographer knew what they were doing. (Similarly with La Vallee).

PF 1969-71 still feels slept on by a lot of people, if it's true, it's a real shame.

MaresNest, Saturday, 14 October 2017 18:30 (one month ago) Permalink

Might not be slept on if Pink Floyd themselves had anything good to say about it - though I suppose "Meddle" is in there, they seem to approve of that.

Tom's Tits Experiment (Tom D.), Saturday, 14 October 2017 18:37 (one month ago) Permalink

Well, it's their patchiest era, so it's not surprising that that particular era is slept on. Although I suspect "slept on" isn't correct term... millions of people at this stage have probably heard those albums - it just so happens many don't like 'em.

more Allegro-like (Turrican), Saturday, 14 October 2017 19:17 (one month ago) Permalink

tbf I suppose "The Wall" isn't patchy, it's consistently shite.

Tom's Tits Experiment (Tom D.), Saturday, 14 October 2017 19:29 (one month ago) Permalink

They hated the way Atom Heart Mother turned out, and Ummagumma feels less like an album from the time and, well, an archival release from right now -- if that had all surfaced as part of the box and had never been heard before, I wouldn't've been surprised at all. The box really does a great job in not only reclaiming the era more thoroughly but conveying why they had such an intense following not only out of the gate but after what in any other situation would have been a crippling switch-out of lead creative figures. I was consistently intrigued by the size of the crowds, festival settings or otherwise.

Ned Raggett, Saturday, 14 October 2017 22:46 (one month ago) Permalink

tbf I suppose "The Wall" isn't patchy, it's consistently shite.

― Tom's Tits Experiment (Tom D.)

i kind of assumed that until listening to the whole thing through again... it really isn't! it's got good stuff on it and awful stuff on it. bob ezrin's production also makes it a lot more listener-friendly than "atom heart mother" is.

i won't say '69, but '70-'71 they were consistent, and consistently great, as a live band - if i only could judge by the studio albums i'm not sure '70-'71 floyd would be my favorite era.

bob lefse (rushomancy), Sunday, 15 October 2017 00:04 (one month ago) Permalink

They were pretty good in '69, the problem I have with '71 is that "Echoes" is so outrageously overrated by everyone - esp. the band, that story they tell about about Rick Wright playing the opening notes thru the Binson like it was the Holy Grail...

Tom's Tits Experiment (Tom D.), Sunday, 15 October 2017 00:28 (one month ago) Permalink

Meddle works precisely because it isn't all "Echoes" -- you have to have that first half as is. And we do, thankfully. I love how all over the place it goes, and at its breeziest it's not far at all from Obscured by Clouds. Thinking on which: seeing how the songs actually work in both the Schroeder films -- strictly diagetic, as songs on radios, tape players, etc that the characters have to hand or are listening to -- I really enjoy taking them all now less as 'Floyd' songs and more as them creating their own weird little riffs or reinterpretations of sounds and styles around them. I forget which song on Obscured it is, but there's a cut that's essentially their take on Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky," and made me realize that if they just ever wanted to be some sort of easy good time boogie band they always had it in them. (See also, getting back to Meddle, "Seamus.")
