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.

Sorry about that first link. It's the song "In My First Future". Sounds like a Meddle outtake.

Apparently I saw them (Floyd not SMB) twice on the Momentary Lapse Of Reason tour. August 5th or 6th 1988 at Wembley Stadium, which is a perfectly fine memory, stood right down the front. But I also have a ticket stub for one of the Docklands Arena dates the following July. Not sure I'd have remembered that otherwise. No support acts AFAIR.

Noel Emits, Monday, 18 May 2020 15:14 (two weeks ago) link

Whereas I distinctly remember the opening act for Bowie at Wembley the year before. Fucking Big Country. Not that Bowie was much better on that tour. Yes I know BC are inexplicably loved around here.

ooh the Collectors. About to put them on a weird mix I'm making.

Nico and John Cale in 71. I can only wonder what any of those conversations entailed.

iirc that was cale's first solo gig! a tape of his set survives. whoever taped it didn't tape floyd.

yes, I think Heron is playing on a few songs here!

1971 Rolling Stone interview with Cale (& Nico) discussing the above show (barely any Pink Floyd content):

and yes Heron plays with him.

Mind you, it might have been a good idea for Mike Heron to learn the songs first.

Is Lou Reed a Good Singer? (Tom D.), Monday, 18 May 2020 21:22 (two weeks ago) link

Yeah sounds like they maybe had a 15-minute rehearsal beforehand. Pretty cool though! Interesting that Cale already had a few Paris 1919 tunes at this point.

If you think that's their best music. I don't think Can and Pink Floyd are all that similar, and they grow further apart as they go on.

Is Lou Reed a Good Singer? (Tom D.), Tuesday, 19 May 2020 09:55 (two weeks ago) link

Pink Floyd rules but I have never gotten hooked by the Can. I like "Vitamin C" a lot but otherwise I have found their music too slippery for me, more watery whereas the Floyd is more airy. I still give the Can a lotta time to try to get it to click given how many people here & in my life elsewhere rate them so highly.

Joey Corona (Euler), Tuesday, 19 May 2020 10:12 (two weeks ago) link

Yeah I don't see much similarity between PF and Can for the most part. Not that you can't like both, but the Can that is most like Floyd probably isn't the most essential Can or like the best Floyd. Maybe stuff like All Gates Open, Animal Waves, Come Sta La Luna could vaguely be cross over points (?) but better to take the bands on their own terms.

Noel Emits, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 10:45 (two weeks ago) link

Floyd for Can heads = A Saucerful Of Secrets, One Of These Days, Echoes, Sheep.

Noel Emits, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 10:50 (two weeks ago) link

It's not that I think Pink Floyd and Can sound alike, its just something about a certain type of epic late 60s into the 70s thing, where there's equal parts song and expansion, noise and groove, it's like, maybe the things I think that make them different are worth comparing at times as they show the flaws of the other? I dunno.

dan selzer, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 13:57 (two weeks ago) link

Groove is not a property I associate with Pink Floyd tbh.

Is Lou Reed a Good Singer? (Tom D.), Tuesday, 19 May 2020 14:02 (two weeks ago) link

you gotta get down with it

prob easier to convert deadheads

brimstead, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 16:19 (two weeks ago) link

Nick Mason is very appropriate for Pink Floyd as he doesn’t play too complex. It gives the Wright/Gilmour textures room to breathe. But I’d love to imagine what they would have achieved with a drummer like Jaki.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Tuesday, 19 May 2020 16:20 (two weeks ago) link

Xpost the Dead's drumming is maybe the worst part of the band outside of "Good Lovin'"

Two drummer lineups are so hard to pull off

But either way I kinda see Pink Floyd as the opposite of the Dead in many ways

it’s not like deadheads are gonna be all “oh man this would be good if the drumming actually sucked”... but yeah what a bonkers comparison

brimstead, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 19:42 (two weeks ago) link

it’s not like deadheads are gonna be all “oh man this would be good if the drumming actually sucked”... but yeah what a bonkers comparison

― brimstead

as a floydhead-converted-to-deadhead the difference to me is that floyd's improvisation was usually more constrained than the dead ever were. even a song like "interstellar overdrive", on the face of it a totally freeform instrumental, was really a matter of finding out a number of things that worked and doing them. the dead on the other hand were so absorbed in the moment and, honestly, in their own heads that a lot more things were possible for them

Kate (rushomancy), Tuesday, 19 May 2020 21:08 (two weeks ago) link

Yep, there's an economy of means to Pink Floyd's playing that really shines in an improvisational setting, whereas I just get impatient with at least 50% of the Dead's jams, even the legendary ones. And I like aimless noodling.

pomenitul, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 21:14 (two weeks ago) link

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."

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

pomenitul, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 22:04 (two weeks 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 (two weeks 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 (two weeks 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 (two weeks 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 (two weeks 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 (two weeks 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 (two weeks 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.

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 (two weeks 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 (two weeks 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
