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.

Never realized the early recordings with "Lucy Leave" were done at the same Decca studio where the Beatles did their audition tape early 1962.

It's part of PF lore that Rick Wright quotes a fragment of the vocal melody of See Emily Play right on the fade out of Shine On... I can kinda hear it but it has always sounded like a bit of a stretch to me, has anyone seen/read a confirmation that this was intentional?

It occurs at 12'12" and it's the 'Emily Tries, but misunderstands' bit, in case you don't already know.

MaresNest, Friday, 3 August 2018 18:33 (three months ago) Permalink

Boy, I don't hear it. Between the saxophone and the guitar arpeggios that seem to be in both channels (?), all I'm hearing are keyboard chords in the middle.

timellison, Friday, 3 August 2018 19:03 (three months ago) Permalink

It's a fragment, right as it starts to fade -

MaresNest, Friday, 3 August 2018 19:13 (three months ago) Permalink

Apologies, I should have clarified that it takes place during Parts 6-9, not 1-5.

MaresNest, Friday, 3 August 2018 19:14 (three months ago) Permalink

not only was it intentional, in some live versions they quote "arnold layne" at the end.

Arch Bacon (rushomancy), Friday, 3 August 2018 23:28 (three months ago) Permalink

i'm less convinced that the nod to the "doctor who" theme in the studio "one of these days" was originally intentional. obviously the '87-onward versions contain an intentional nod to it, and i've heard bootlegs from as early as '73 that explicitly reference the theme, but for me at least the jury's still out on the "meddle" version.

Arch Bacon (rushomancy), Friday, 3 August 2018 23:32 (three months ago) Permalink

yeah in fact I never noticed the similarity until Delicate Sound of Thunder came out

akm, Saturday, 4 August 2018 01:03 (three months ago) Permalink

First time paying attention to that one and it seems pretty intentional like the “see emily plays” vocal line. Nice hommage to Syd there.

I was thinking the other day how so much more appealing Pink Floyd were when they had a bit of mystery about 'em and nobody knew much about the internal politics etc. and no one band member was drawing attention to themselves. Success fucked that all up.

Back from the days when nobody knew who Roger Waters was... he was just another guy in an excellent space-rock band. The ego had yet to inflate, and the arsehole in him had yet to become apparent.

Le Baton Rose (Turrican), Wednesday, 8 August 2018 21:24 (three months ago) Permalink

Their music post-Syd and pre-DSOTM can be so pleasant and unassuming.

timellison, Wednesday, 8 August 2018 21:26 (three months ago) Permalink

xp as i get older, i get less irritated with band "villains" (waters, robbie robertson etc) — they just seem like maybe the most hard-working, ambitious members of a group who accidentally turn into jerks.

tylerw, Wednesday, 8 August 2018 21:28 (three months ago) Permalink

It's more that I like how "low key" the band members generally kept themselves '69-'72, it gave the Floyd a bit of mystery and put the music at the forefront. While getting to know the band as "personalities" doesn't prevent 'Shine on You Crazy Diamond', 'Dogs' or 'Comfortably Numb' from ruling, I wish they'd tried to keep a little mystery a la Kraftwerk or their earlier selves.

Le Baton Rose (Turrican), Wednesday, 8 August 2018 21:40 (three months ago) Permalink

like Syd did?

akm, Wednesday, 8 August 2018 22:40 (three months ago) Permalink

Interesting though how they managed to stay so anonymous slap bang in the middle of the "rock god" era. I imagine even at the height of Dark Side Of The Moon, Waters could walk down the street relatively unrecognised. Whereas Bowie would be mobbed even though Ziggy Stardust sold a lot less

yeah in some sense bowie and floyd were polar opposites, after syd they were sort of swallowed up in the vast emptiness of space. was there any band better equipped to play stadiums?

Arch Bacon (rushomancy), Thursday, 9 August 2018 00:19 (three months ago) Permalink

two weeks pass...

Fascinating bit in the Kopp book about the soundtrack to The Committee. After describing the obvious Floyd pieces in the soundtrack, there's this:

The film's soundtrack does contain a mysterious anomaly. The first thirty-second snippet of music used is played backward in the film. It features a most unusual mix of sounds: drums sound like Indian tabla, guitars sound like sitars (or electric sitars), and the keyboard sounds seem to be coming from an early modular synthesizer. It's worth noting that none of these instruments had made an appearance on a Pink Floyd recording previously...

The provenance of this piece of music is hinted at in Julian Palacios's book Syd Barrett & Pink Floyd: Dark Globe. As Palacios points out, when producer Max Steuer contracted with Pink Floyd to provide the film's soundtrack, Syd Barrett was still in the group. And more than two months before Pink Floyd began their session for the film soundtrack, Syd Barrett reported for duty. Apparently, Barrett showed up at Sound Techniques studio on the appointed day, January 30, 1968, without a guitar or band. As Steuer had booked session time in advance, phone calls were made, and an ad hoc band was assembled. That group may have included Steve Peregrin Took (later of T. Rex (sic)) and Brian "Blinky" Davidson, Davy O'List's band mate in the Nice. Though Palacios does not suggest that the single track they recorded was actually used in the film, he asserts that Barrett insisted the twenty-minute recording be played backward once it was completed.

Anyway, here is that plus a couple of the tracks recorded later with Gilmour. I quite like them, very garage!

The box is home made, using black illustration board with laminated prints that will remind you which box you keep your Pink Floyd cassettes in. This box should not be considered professionally made, but you can see how much easier it will be to find your stash of Pink Floyd cassettes, and besides, it's all about the music, and these 31 Pink Floyd cassettes will kick your ass with or without a conveniently decorated box!
