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.

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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7c0EDM-Yu9o

Didn't realize it until now but it's by far my favorite Pink Floyd record. I've been going through everything I have from them, and as much as I admire their work, a lot of those same records can leave me a bit cold. Not this one. I'm more partial to the Barrett era, but even this one stands out.

birdistheword, Wednesday, 4 August 2021 01:12 (two months ago) link

I slowed down the middle bit recently to see what it sounded like at normal(ish) speed, it was very pretty

Yes, I did that on my old wobbly reel to reel, many years ago.

Mark G, Wednesday, 4 August 2021 10:33 (two months ago) link

Was that Norman Smith's idea to record that break that way? He engineered Rubber Soul where George Martin did the same trick for "In My Life" (what they joked was a poor man's harpsichord) so I wonder if he pitched the idea to Pink Floyd.

birdistheword, Wednesday, 4 August 2021 14:37 (two months ago) link

"A Saucerful of Secrets" and the Wright and Waters tracks on Ummagumma feature a lot of varispeeded voices and instruments; I know those came later, but I suspect Wright had encountered tape manipulation in his music studies.

Halfway there but for you, Wednesday, 4 August 2021 14:40 (two months ago) link

Plus the Chipmunks, etc.

Halfway there but for you, Wednesday, 4 August 2021 14:40 (two months ago) link

The Chipmunks never get credit for their influence. Why aren't they in the Rock 'n' Roll HOF dammit???

If anyone is curious - https://www.fromsmash.com/Ekghy69mPK-bt

Maresn3st, Wednesday, 4 August 2021 15:53 (two months ago) link

The Chipmunks have never been a thing in the UK tbh, Pinky and Perky on the other hand...

Pinky and Perky spoke and sang in high-pitched voices, created by re-playing original voice recordings at twice the original recorded speed; the vocals were sung by Mike Sammes[1] while the backing track was played at half normal speed (Sammes did the same job for Ken Dodd's Diddymen, as Ross Bagdasarian did for the original Chipmunks in the early 1960s)—hence the expression "Pinky and Perky speed", when an LP record is played at 45 rpm or 78 rpm instead of the correct 33⅓ rpm. Pinky and Perky would often sing cover versions of popular songs, but also had their own theme song, "We Belong Together".

... and, of course, the Goons, "Ying Tong Song", No. 3 in the charts in 1956, folks!

Soundtracked by an ecojazz mixtape (Tom D.), Wednesday, 4 August 2021 16:56 (two months ago) link

iirc wright credited john wood (the in-house engineer at sound techniques) with speeding up the piano interlude in a totp interview.

Deflatormouse, Wednesday, 4 August 2021 17:37 (two months ago) link

Pinky and Perky would often sing cover versions of popular songs, but also had their own theme song, "We Belong Together".

Now I'm imagining Pat Benatar's "We Belong" sung in ultra-high chipmunky voices and...I kinda want to hear it.

xp thanks Deflatormouse

Listening to Piper, the mono mix FWIW - I've never put it on more than once at a time, so this is the first time I've played it again and gone back through it (rewinding through tracks, repeating tracks, etc.) It really is an incredible psychedelic fantasia to get immersed in. So dense and so much happening, their later work seems so airy and orderly in comparison. Also as much as I love "See Emily Play," it's kind of a rare instance of concentrated brilliance - even at this stage Pink Floyd albums were truly albums. There are standouts on Piper, but even the highlights don't really work as singles. Not a knock on Barrett, just the nature of the music.

birdistheword, Wednesday, 4 August 2021 17:41 (two months ago) link

Found it

Although it sounds a bit gimmicky, hardly any special effects were used. Take that 'Hawaiian' bit at the end of each verse, that was just Syd using a bottleneck through echo. The part that sounds speeded up, John Woods, the engineer, just upped the whole thing about an octave.

Deflatormouse, Wednesday, 4 August 2021 17:49 (two months ago) link

There's a quote from Wood in one of the books (I can't remember which) to the effect of, 'the record is quite gimmicky, that's what happens when you have two engineers working on the same record'

'Flaming' was a single in France and maybe some other places, and i think it "works" to a degree, it doesn't really have a chorus or anything, it's more of a mood piece than 'Emily' but it might be the most similar in terms of the allegedly "gimmicky" production.

I haven't listened to it in a while, but the densities on PatGoD are more clustered together than they seem to be at first. Lucifer Sam seems to have the most overdubs. The sections with a lot of things happening all at once create the illusion that the whole record is denser than it probably is.

"Fantasia" is otm though. It's way more intense than the singles, there's more 'sturm und drang'

Deflatormouse, Wednesday, 4 August 2021 18:10 (two months ago) link

Mono mix is a must imo. If you're listening to the stereo mix you're doing it wrong.

They had a couple of hits, and I have two of their singles - one is songs from Mary Poppins which is suitably silly, and one which is from ChittyChittyBangBang and is .. well, "Hushabye Mountain" is sadder than "Caroline No", I tell you!

I was at a neighbor's house last night for a drink, and he asked if there was anything I wanted to hear. I said nah, go ahead and put whatever you want on. He said, you sure? I know you're a music guy. And I said, nah, surprise me. And he put on "Have a Cigar" and said he'd really been getting into Pink Floyd lately. I guess that surprised me.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 6 September 2021 13:25 (one month ago) link

That's actually a good pick. I was on a Pink Floyd kick earlier this summer (and posted about it here!) and despite my strong preference for The Piper at the Gates of Dawn era, I did appreciate the Waters-era more. Besides the Pompeii film, Dark Side and Wish You Were Here were the ones that I really enjoyed without reservation.
