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.

I was talking about dead heads digging Can but I don’t know anymore

brimstead, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 22:03 (four months ago) link

Moka asked: I got two friends who are all about Pink Floyd ruling, and I can’t seem to get them to listen to Can. What would you think would be the best connection point to get them into them. Future Days perhaps?

How about "Millionenspiel"?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMoxgb4TTFk

It's from 1969 so it pre-dates PF's "One of These Days"; but they seem to share a vibe.

Second pick would be the album "Monster Movie."

ernestp, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 22:04 (four months ago) link

True, but this here is the PINK FLOYD (RULES) thread.

xp

pomenitul, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 22:04 (four months ago) link

(xp) It depends what era of Floyd they are interested in but, even then, I don't know why you assume Pink Floyd fans would like "Monster Movie".

Is Lou Reed a Good Singer? (Tom D.), Tuesday, 19 May 2020 22:16 (four months ago) link

If you're more of a pre-DSOTM Floyd fan I can't imagine you'd have too many problems adjusting to Can.

Is Lou Reed a Good Singer? (Tom D.), Tuesday, 19 May 2020 22:18 (four months ago) link

here's how to get pink floyd fans into can

tell them "listen to can, they rule"

since pink floyd also RULES obviously they should be interested

if they aren't for some reason that's fine, just make fun of them until they either go away or start pretending to like can

of course there is also the (great) piece can did on the old grey whistle test in '74 called "untitled (for pink floyd)", looks like the sendspace i threw up of it a little while back is still good

https://www.sendspace.com/file/qh3qo1

Kate (rushomancy), Tuesday, 19 May 2020 22:26 (four months ago) link

My dad loves Floyd's post-Syd, pre-DSOTM material, was into Ash Ra Tempel and Amon Düül at the time, and his favourite King Crimson album is Islands, yet he still finds Can too busy and weird, even on Future Days. That he discovered them almost thirty years later is likely part of the problem.

pomenitul, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 22:27 (four months ago) link

Fair enough though, Amon Duul II and Ash Ra Tempel fit more neatly with that era of Floyd.

Is Lou Reed a Good Singer? (Tom D.), Tuesday, 19 May 2020 22:35 (four months ago) link

CAN propose to take you on an adventure, to bear witness to the whole wild ride, slipperiness and all. it's immediate and exhilarating but might cause you to feel apprehensive or disoriented.

pink floyd have already come back from their adventures and propose to tell you about it in exaggerated if highly enjoyable detail. the achievements are towering but we're dealing with a more-or-less formalized storytelling, not wild and magical incantations.

it's maybe a bit like the difference between rabelais and racine.

budo jeru, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 23:23 (four months ago) link

I don't think Pink Floyd's music is ever as tightly wound as Racine's alexandrins, but in terms of sheer clarity I agree that the two intersect. The difference is that post-Syd, pre-The Wall Pink Floyd view optimization as a means of approximating a modest experience of transcendence, whereas there's a claustrophobic logic to Racine's plays that doesn't really point towards anything other than its own aesthetic and theological fatalism.

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 20 May 2020 00:43 (four months ago) link

lol, could you even imagine what a CAN concept album would be about?

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Wednesday, 20 May 2020 03:54 (four months ago) link

A can of vegetables?

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 20 May 2020 04:55 (four months ago) link

mushrooms, to be exact, with heads

they use quantum physics to summon Mother Sky from the future days and bring the rain during the vernal equinox

sleeve, Wednesday, 20 May 2020 05:09 (four months ago) link

It turns out that perhaps PF and Can's literal point of nearest confluence is that time when they each had a hit disco single.

Noel Emits, Wednesday, 20 May 2020 08:03 (four months ago) link

lol sleeve

xp i wasn't expecting such a complex analysis of racine (or floyd), though i think you're spot on. my comparison was only meant to evoke a sort of classicist conceptual space vs. a more sprawling, piecemeal artistry that embraces dead-ends and absurdity

I'm finally reading Nick Mason's book Inside Out. Nick rules, even if there is roughly zero insight into anything.

― EZ Snappin, Friday, January 10, 2014 2:46 PM (six years ago) bookmarkflaglink

FYI - this is free right now if you have a Kindle and Amazon Prime

it's kind of fascinating, EZ is totally right, like his memory is very good and it's definitely shedding a lot of light of how the band fell together and the early days (just started) but he's WEIRDLY removed from it, like if this were written by just some rock journo (removing the first person) it would seem right, like this happened and this happened and this happened

he barely really touches on Syd or anyone else as a person -- the only thing is he has more than a few bitchy asides about Rick Wright being a cheapskate haha. Make a few comments about Roger's temper but yeah very odd tone, like he wasn't that connected to what's going on.

One thing that is very funny is that the era's premier psychedelic band were extremely extremely square upper middle class school boys.

definitely a good read just to learn a whole lot of detail about the saga

I didn't know Joe Boyd was involved in the early days and that their management company was also behind T-Rex, etc

it really is. i didn't intend to watch all of that, when i started. it's nothing too unexpected - it's just very nice to watch them all nail it, and to see him play that part at the end with gilmour where they echo (har har) each other's parts
