I scored nice vinyl copies of Obscurred and Meddle this weekend. They rule.

Waters sings "Set The Controls..." with Mason's band last night...

We’re so happy we can hardly count!

Pretty fun. Was stuck sitting in front of some drunk stoned chatty assholes who wouldn't shut up. They were also really pissed because Roger didn't show up, after his surprise last night people expected it. I was fine without him.

the russian version of "Life on Mars" was called "The Dark Side of the Moon" (Обратная сторона Луны). i don't think i agree with this. russians should listen to more david bowie.

I know this is the PINK FLOYD RULES thread and not the Art Linkletter thread, BUT

Today's the last day of school, so being the 30-year-old boomer that I am, I cranked up "School's Out" in the car. It got somewhat of a positive reaction from the jaded 6th-grader and the maniacal 3rd-grader, so I rolled the dice and told them to find "Another Brick in the Wall Part II" on their phone.

("Is Part II better than Part I?" the boy asks me. "Eh, Part II swings a bit more, you'll like it," I promise him.)

Second verse begins and he's all "WHERE DID THESE KIDS COME FROM?" I tell him England. "NOT WHERE THEY'RE FROM, BUT WHERE DID THEY COME FROM?"

I tell the daughter she can turn it off once the guitar solo kicks in, thinking I'm pushing my luck. But no, she likes it, or at least likes to humor me. This of course leads us to the Schoolmaster at the end, admonishing everyone to eat their meat before they can have any pudding. ("Well I always eat my meat, so I know he's not talking to me," says the boy.)

As we pull into the parking lot, I say that the whole album's like that, tunes in your left ear, some crazy person muttering something in your right ear. This song was the Top 40 hit, so it veers off from there.

"Boy!" says the son, "I wouldn't know which ear to listen to!"

daddy, what else did you leave for me?

My daughter, a child of the streaming age, and as such conversant with nearly everyfuckingthing (I come home from work and she’s doing her makeup to Thin Lizzy. My Flock of Seagulls records go missing cuz she brings them to a party), somehow has never heard of Syd Barrett. She tells me she hates Pink Floyd. (This is likely largely influenced by her hatred of faux-deep high-school stoner bros; understandable.) I made her a playlist of some of the weirder & but still catchy stuff, studiously avoiding hits. It morphed into something a little different than I had intended. Roughly chronological but liberties were taken in the service of flow. Dig?

Great story pplains.

Mazzy Tsar (PBKR), Friday, 24 May 2019 15:03 (eight months ago) link

dumb hoffman forums have indicated that a Late Years box set (featuring the post-waters era) is on the way and will be announced soon, covering everything from Momentary Lapse through Endless River, with live shows (audio and video) plus a wealth of unreleased studio stuff (big spliff assumingly).

akm, Friday, 24 May 2019 18:55 (eight months ago) link

huh! is there a reason that they refuse to do an animals immersion set?

tylerw, Friday, 24 May 2019 19:00 (eight months ago) link

(and yeah great story pplains!)

tylerw, Friday, 24 May 2019 19:00 (eight months ago) link

no word yet on animals immersion. my guess at some point they'll relent and do a middle years box since those immersion sets are pretty old now and the wall one kind of sucked.

akm, Friday, 24 May 2019 19:13 (eight months ago) link

i have a soft spot for momentary lapse but it doesn't really seem like an era that's ripe for reappraisal

mookieproof, Friday, 24 May 2019 19:22 (eight months ago) link

i want an Animals immersion set ;_;

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 24 May 2019 19:39 (eight months ago) link

There's a remixed version of Momentary Lapse with the 80s keyboards and production touches edged out and apparently with more of Wright that's been knocking around since way before the Immersion sets were even announced, I'd like to hear that.

MaresNest, Friday, 24 May 2019 21:37 (eight months ago) link

someone else apparently in the know claims that was never finished and scrapped and therefore not happening on this box set

akm, Friday, 24 May 2019 23:50 (eight months ago) link

but same person would neither confirm nor deny the presence of all the music recorded for this:

The Christies print catalog from the Gilmour sale arrived yesterday. Total gear nerd-out material.

nothing for them to release! unless they want to start putting out audience tapes and uninteresting "rough mixes". just listen to those three really good aud tapes and you're good

Flood-Resistant Mirror-Drilling Machine (rushomancy), Saturday, 25 May 2019 03:22 (eight months ago) link

I think a 5.1 mix of animals has been done for quite some time. who knows why they haven't gotten around to releasing it.

akm, Saturday, 25 May 2019 15:27 (eight months ago) link

also, I have just finally come around on Division Bell, which I used to really dislike and thought it sounded mushy and MOR and dull. Maybe I'm just older and have gone soft and MOR myself but now I thknk it's a really great album!

akm, Saturday, 25 May 2019 15:28 (eight months ago) link

I love the outer-spacey production style on The Division Bell. It’s the lack of good songwriting that bogs it down. And background singers.

Auction is going on now. Christies site for the auction is overwhelmed, but they app apparently works. Updates as they're sold on twitter.
