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.

tylerw, Thursday, 28 July 2011 20:54 (ten years ago) link

[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.

Like most people who were teenage boys at some point the Wall was huge for me when I was 12 or whatever. Now I think it’s completely overrated nonsense but a few moments, Esp where gilmours melodic sense kicks in enough, stand out.

i reckon between the age of 12 - 13 i listened to The Wall at least 500 times. 40 years later i have still not got over that listening overdose and find it unbearable, with the exception of 'Run Like Hell'.

Current personal ranking:

Relics / A Nice Pair
side 2, tracks 1 - 3 Atom Heart Mother
Ummagumma live sides
Meddle
Obscured By Clouds
Wish You Were Here
More

going from animals to the wall is an all-time dramatic drop in quality

ufo, Sunday, 6 June 2021 00:39 (one month ago) link

I named my daughter after a Syd Barrett song so my allegiance is obvious.

Post Barrett pre Dark Side there are some amazing highs and some failed experiments but plenty of killer stuff. I posted my Pink Floyd radio show appearance here already right? The only time I’ve been invited into the Lot (and was able to see it through).

dan selzer, Sunday, 6 June 2021 02:06 (one month ago) link

I have some mixed feelings about Rick beato. Mostly I think he represents everything I hate about music. And then occasionally he says something smart and interesting and has an open mind about things. But mostly I hate watch. He thinks Sting is the greatest songwriter of all time.

― dan selzer, Saturday, 5 June 2021 02:51 (yesterday) link

Beato is weird. Sometimes he'll have this amazingly insightful explanation of how a particular good song works or why a guitar solo rules or something, but then his instagram is just full of all of this utter crap where it's like "I really like to use a g flat minor phrygolidian over a d-sharp flat 5 flat 9 sharp 13 chord" -- and then he hits some kind of extremely awful synth pad sound and noodles over it, and I just don't get how someone can have such seemingly good taste and such bad taste at the same time.

longtime caller, first time listener (man alive), Sunday, 6 June 2021 02:46 (one month ago) link

It's curious that, although The Wall is a big step down from Animals, and a very different sonic experience, on closer inspection they share many building blocks - like the guitar solos in "Dogs" and "Another Brick II" could be swapped out, they're even in the same key. The acoustic songs are like "Pigs on the Wing", ten times over. Formerly good ideas are squeezed into this overblown DRAMATIC context.
Bob Ezrin used up all his bag of tricks by the time of Berlin, he must be in love with turgidity. I'll assign him a special portion of blame to share with Waters.
A record I've heard recently that could have been a signpost for where they could have gone is by future Gilmour collaborator Anthony Moore/More: World Service from 1981. His lyrics for late Floyd are a little try-hard, but you can see why he was picked for the role - the album's a blend between Animals, Wire's 154 and John Cale's Honi Soit.

Halfway there but for you, Sunday, 6 June 2021 04:44 (one month ago) link

I’m a huge Anthony Moore fan and his “pop” rock albums World Service, Flying Doesn’t Help and the recently rereleased Out ate fantastic slices of post Cale/Eno art rock with some Barrett influence too. Not to mention that Slapp Happy totally RULES.

dan selzer, Sunday, 6 June 2021 05:02 (one month ago) link

Fauna Sukkot (Deflatormouse), Sunday, 6 June 2021 05:38 (one month ago) link

i love 'Pieces from the Cloudland Ballroom' and some of his other things, but haven't really listened to Anthony Moore's pop music. I remember liking his collab with ARP for the FRKWYS series 10 or so years ago; that was the last thing i heard.

Fauna Sukkot (Deflatormouse), Sunday, 6 June 2021 05:43 (one month ago) link

I do feel like the adults in the room need to calm things down a bit and remind everyone that PINK FLOYD RULES

"Flying Doesn't Help" is a great album. Also sounds like a Pink Floyd song/album title.

pplains, Sunday, 6 June 2021 17:03 (one month ago) link

I just don't get how someone can have such seemingly good taste and such bad taste at the same time.

I think it's that, as a producer and working musician, he tries his best to keep an open mind, because he never quite knows what he'll be asked to work on and also recognizes that even though something might not be his thing, he still wants to know how to make them sound the best they can, or why they are popular, or what trends are they chasing, etc. There are things I've seen him complain about, but rarely harshly.

But certainly taste and talent and knowledge can be totally divergent. My guitar teacher (who similarly tries to keep his own preferences in check) and I have talked about Larry Carlton, who is as good as it gets on guitar, and has played so many great guitar parts, but whose solo albums are generally pretty unexceptional.

__I named my daughter after a Syd Barrett song_

Opal.

Yes I changed the spelling. I wasn’t going to name her after the car. It’s also my wife’s birth stone.

dan selzer, Sunday, 6 June 2021 17:25 (one month ago) link

Thought so!

One of my favorite songs of his also. I remember reading somewhere that the lost track "Living Alone" evolved into "Opel", or is another name for the same song, but now I can't find the source (Gilmour?)

Anyone?

Fauna Sukkot (Deflatormouse), Sunday, 6 June 2021 17:33 (one month ago) link

"she was a millionaire", not "living alone" sorry. there is chatter about this on web forums but i don't remember where the idea came from.

The organ intro to the "no title" 1967 insteumenteal (aka "sunshine") = the intro to opel. the idea that it's a composite of older songs with maybe some added material makes sense.

Fauna Sukkot (Deflatormouse), Sunday, 6 June 2021 18:01 (one month ago) link

Probably more a question for the Yeeshkul! forum or the like

Fauna Sukkot (Deflatormouse), Sunday, 6 June 2021 18:03 (one month ago) link

Yeah Yeeshkul! had the answer, it's in David Parker's book

3 instrumental takes of Syd's She Was A Millionaire were recorded during the Piper sessions. It never got to the overdub stage. Melody Maker announced that it was being considered as a possible follow up to Emily. According to Andrew King and Peter Jenner it was one of Syd's best efforts, was in waltz time, and started with "she was a millionaire, they didn't have time to care.." Syd, Rick, Dave and Jerry Shirley recorded a rehearsal of this track during the 1970 Barrett LP sessions. David Parker heard the tape and has said that the "I'm trying...to find you" section of Opel was originally the chorus to Millionaire

A recent Yeeshkul thread:

I struggled where to put this- Reddit, or here, and decided the quality of responses was more important than the quantity.

I do insane XMAS lights (60,000 RGB pixels, synchronized to music, radio broadcast, interactive show...every HOA's worst nightmare). The reason I built the insane XMAS light show was not for XMAS music, of course, but so I could host an "underground album party" and say "well, I already had the lights, so..."

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/pink-floyd-wish-you-here-tour-bootleg-remastered-sound-1193122/

Gave a listen yesterday afternoon -- it's quite good and the performance certainly is solid throughout. Does remind me though why I don't really live for this music anymore like I did when I was in my late teens, just because ultimately there are no surprises from the band at this point. The then-unreleased songs that form the first half of the set, a great moment in context no question, but in context. Waters then turning this very well oiled machine (har har) into his own psychodrama supporting musicians, sheesh. I'll stick with the early years in the run up to Dark Side, where they don't quite know yet what they can do and trying to figure it out on multiple fronts.
