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.

missing "biding my time" from "relics"

and yeah seabirds is gone forever, the tapes were destroyed, all that's there is the diegetic recording in the film

i really wish somebody would record it with the arrangement used in the film (there's one cover but it's a slow ballad arrangement)

Abigail, Wife of Preserved Fish (rushomancy), Sunday, 4 August 2019 01:07 (three months ago) link

The “seabirds” on this list is from the Early Years box set (1969) — apparently it’s an alternate version of Quicksilver from More, so I can happily dump it. Thanks for the tip-off about Biding My Time. I’ve plonked it on the end, which seems to fit Floyd’s penchant for slightly sore-thumb album closers.

Una Palooka Dronka (hardcore dilettante), Sunday, 4 August 2019 01:29 (three months ago) link

Piper is kind of sui generis. Such a huge soft spot for that record but I have a hard time evaluating it within the context of their catalogue; it was a different band.

yeah it really has so little to do with what they became, it's probably best compared to like SF Sorrow or Os Mutantes

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Sunday, 4 August 2019 01:41 (three months ago) link

I've got to say disagree with the idea that Piper had little to do with what they became. I think its influence lingered at least up until, but not including, DSOTM.

How to Book Michael Fish (Tom D.), Sunday, 4 August 2019 01:54 (three months ago) link

Part of it? Maybe more "Interstellar Overdrive" than "The Gnome" or "Bike," although I think their pastoralism has roots in Syd too (say, "The Scarecrow").

timellison, Sunday, 4 August 2019 03:13 (three months ago) link

The direct influence certainly lingered - they were doing "Interstellar Overdrive" in concert through the end of 1970 and "Set the Controls" (a Syd-era composition) through '73 - but the shadow stuck around for the rest of their career. Which is maybe a lot of the issue a lot of people have with Syd's relationship with the band; he deserves to be known as more than a shadow.

Abigail, Wife of Preserved Fish (rushomancy), Sunday, 4 August 2019 14:12 (three months ago) link

Wish You Were Here is all about Syd, after all. I never got the sense that Floyd Mk. II wanted him to be forgotten, the blame lies elsewhere.

pomenitul, Sunday, 4 August 2019 14:15 (three months ago) link

It's not at all about him being forgotten, it's about how he's remembered... which is as a Poor Tragic Loony rather than for his actual songs. As opposed to, say, someone like Brian Wilson, who is certainly well known as a Poor Tragic Loony, but not to the extent that his songs are.

Abigail, Wife of Preserved Fish (rushomancy), Sunday, 4 August 2019 14:26 (three months ago) link

For the band members themselves, witnessing Syd's progressive loss of self from up close must have been a traumatizing experience so I get why they decided to underscore that facet of the Madcap in their lyrics ('And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes…'). I haven't watched or read any interviews with them wherein they reminisce about Syd, though…

pomenitul, Sunday, 4 August 2019 14:33 (three months ago) link

And maybe I'm reading too much (and too charitably) into this, but I've always felt like the closing quip 'There is no dark side of the moon, really. Matter of fact, it's all dark' is a potentially sensitive take on the overarching theme of mental illness (lunacy having both a figurative and etymological meaning throughout), i.e. the demarcation between madness and non-madness, Syd-led Floyd and Syd-less Floyd, etc., isn't as watertight as it appears.

pomenitul, Sunday, 4 August 2019 14:51 (three months ago) link

It's much more than about just playing "Interstellar Overdrive" or even "Astronomy Domine" (the first space rock song!) occasionally. Vocals and harmonies (Barrett/Wright) and Syd's unorthodox chord sequences and guitar playing are very influential on the Syd-less band.

I haven't watched or read any interviews with them wherein they reminisce about Syd, though…

Sometimes it seems like they talk about little else! But that could be just because that's the part of their history I find most interesting so seek out.

How to Book Michael Fish (Tom D.), Sunday, 4 August 2019 15:18 (three months ago) link

Good to know! I forgot to mention that I haven't looked up any interviews with them, period. A rabbit hole awaits…

pomenitul, Sunday, 4 August 2019 15:21 (three months ago) link

(Btw, I agree with you re: vocals, harmonies, chord sequences, guitar playing, etc.).

pomenitul, Sunday, 4 August 2019 15:23 (three months ago) link

i mean, it's not the band's fault that their post-syd stuff was so much more famous than syd's actual stuff. well i mean it is the band's "fault" in that they were the ones who went on to make classic and mega-selling records that have had far more impact on the public psyche than syd's stuff has, and i know there are a lot of syd fans who sort of resent them for that, but i think that's a little unfair to the band, who really went out of their way to do right by syd. i also think that sort of fan resentment gives short shrift to how difficult it is to care about a mentally ill person.

Abigail, Wife of Preserved Fish (rushomancy), Sunday, 4 August 2019 16:55 (three months ago) link

I've seen Wright looking really quite haunted when recalling Syd in documentaries, esp when re-telling the story where they began just blipping over picking him up to take him to gigs.

MaresNest, Sunday, 4 August 2019 17:16 (three months ago) link

Speaking of Wright, a great analysis from Samuel Andreyev!

from whatever i've read it seemed like gilmour in particular seemed to really go out of his way to facilitate syd's solo career as much as anyone could at that point

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 7 August 2019 20:07 (three months ago) link

Yes, I think Gilmour really made the effort - the others seem to have been variously freaked out by the whole experience - but then he was playing and singing Syd's songs and (I think) lived across the street from him.

(many xposts) Missing the 1966 version of “Interstellar Overdrive” and “Nick’s Boogie”

Mr. Snrub, Wednesday, 7 August 2019 20:23 (three months ago) link

I guess each of those could take up a side and be album 1 of a double. I’ve never even heard them! Which does not rule.

Una Palooka Dronka (hardcore dilettante), Wednesday, 7 August 2019 22:36 (three months ago) link

it's nice of andreyev to do, but i don't think i could stand listening to anyone talk about 'see saw' for 45 minutes. i think i'll check out his video on bartok's fourth string quartet instead.

the public eating of beans (Sparkle Motion), Thursday, 29 August 2019 15:49 (two months ago) link

I saw that 1987 tour — I was 15, maybe 16 — and it was like going to a Laser Floyd show or to see a cover band. I don't even remember what the album (Lapse) sounded like, and have never heard Division Bell or Endless River, never mind the live albums.

shared unit of analysis (unperson), Thursday, 29 August 2019 16:23 (two months ago) link

the finalized track listing of that box is awfully disappointing. No Big Spliff, no Carerra Panamerica (which i'd heard wasn't making it because Gilmour doesn't like it, but still), no Peace At Last (which I hear got pulled at the last minute). All of that would maybe be ok if they didn't want $500 for this. I don't see it selling well, and it'll just make the vaguely curious resort to piracy.

akm, Thursday, 29 August 2019 16:57 (two months ago) link

and by that I mean: I will definitely download the MLOR remix. I'm sure that's vastly improved (I don't dislike that album as much as others do). The rest doesn't hold a huge amount of interest to me.
