This math teacher of mine, while bashing post-Barrett Floyd, mentioned that the name Pink Floyd came from a nickname for Syd. I told him he was wrong but before I could finish he interjected with "read an interview sometime". Has anybody heard this bullshit story before?

he actually started bitching about Zeppelin right afterwards. Part of me thinks he was pulling some Jon Wurster shit or something.

The 8-track has a longer version of Pigs On The Wing with a guitar solo by Snowy White.

The group first referred to themselves as the Pink Floyd Sound in late 1965. Barrett created the name on the spur of the moment when he discovered that another band, also called the Tea Set, were to perform at one of their gigs.[20] The name is derived from the given names of two blues musicians whose Piedmont blues records Barrett had in his collection, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council.[21]

There's a Garage Revival band called "Anderson Council". I'm not sure of how much they rule though.

There's apparently no evidence that either Pink Anderson or Floyd Council knew there was a famous band named after them

EZ Snappin, Friday, 19 October 2012 14:48 (five years ago) Permalink

is this the same recording that was floating around or is it the actual tape? as opposed to the tape of them playing the tape in a club recently?

tylerw, Friday, 19 October 2012 14:52 (five years ago) Permalink

I think the tape of the tape.

I can't think of anything better to do right now than to listen to this show: http://pinkfloydbootlegplanet.blogspot.com/2010/03/pink-floyd-trick-of-light-march-121970.html

Found out this week that HMV in town has a campaign on the 2011 remasters where single discs are €9.99 and doubles are €14.99. So have subsequently wondered about a few things, which of the lps are essential for one, I'm thinking everything 67-72 though I have the 2007 3cd box of Piper already.
Also what the story was on EMI dumping (or was it selling off?) the Floyd back catalogue which I heard about somewhere else and I wasn't sure how it effected the Discovery series, or if the idea had been dropped.

Also last year when the Discovery series began there was talk of a psychedelic era Immersion box, presumably covering the 1st 2lps, the surrounding singles, various demoes and outtakes and live material. When it was being talked about last year I think it was projected for around this time this year, if not earlier. I haven't heard any thing new about it and wondered if the series was still ongoing. Anybody know?

not many ilxors agree w/me but i infinitely prefer the Waters era to the Barrett era so for me the essential run is Dark Side through to The Wall.

XP - Stevolende, the back catalogue is in limbo at the moment, Universal don't get to keep PF as part of their big EMI buyout, so it depends what happens to EMI over the next year or so. PF's licensing deal ends in about 18 months anyway so the archive could go anywhere.
The was and Early Years box set in planning, from Saucerful to Ummagumma iirc (or maybe including AHM) with maybe some live material (that Syd-era club gig that's been making the rounds recently and Amsterdam '69) but it has been shelved for the moment.

oh dear, early morning typing, duh

music of the squares (MaresNest), Sunday, 11 November 2012 11:38 (five years ago) Permalink

From Saucerful to Ummagumma? I thought it was going to cover the Piper era and earlier, talk mentioned several 65 & 66 demoes from what I've seen.

So, I was just wondering where that left the Discovery material, if what was going on sale at the moment was being sold off prior to deletion. just to clear warehouses etc.
Well I picked up a couple of titles and may pick up Atom Heart Mother & Ummagumma yet. No sign of either Saucer or Obscured By Clouds though.

Stevolende, Sunday, 11 November 2012 11:42 (five years ago) Permalink

I don't think the Discovery series will dry up anytime soon, it's a slow moving process.

There was a bunch of early demos in Mason's archive so I'm told, I don't know if they were part of the plan or if Piper was to be included in the early set given that it has been fairly well represented. I was lobbying for the inclusion of the mono Saucerful as the Stereo mix is all over the place.

There was also talk of a sympathetically remixed Obscured by Clouds, I didn't think it sounded *that* bad.

an immersion box of post-Syd, pre-Dark Side Floyd might be the immersion box I'd be most likely to buy. over the past few years, that's become my favorite era. and there are so many weird/wonderful little side-trips to explore.
