can anything possibly rule more than van morrison singing the comfortably numb chorus at the berlin wall in 1990

i fucking doubt it

Not Victor Borges then.

That set is an abomination

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 29 August 2019 15:26 (five months ago) link

I still have yet to hear a note of Endless River.

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 (five 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 (five 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.

The most irrationally overpriced boxed set in history. They continue to innovate.

Pink Floyd's Pink Floyd Announces New Project That Excites Fans Extremely

Mark G, Sunday, 8 September 2019 08:15 (five months ago) link

Really glad Endless River came up here because I too hadn't heard it (except the single which is meh) and it's kinda great. According to wiki Andy Gill called it "faux-psychedelic dinner-party muzak". Like that was a bad thing?

Ned Trifle X, Sunday, 8 September 2019 08:49 (five months ago) link

I am moderately excited

✖✖✖ (Moka), Sunday, 8 September 2019 09:18 (five months ago) link

Here I was thinking that they had replaced David Gilmour with Nuno Bettencourt.

John Lennon, Jesus Christ, Chief Joseph and... the Texas flag.

I'd probably wear that shirt if I hung out in a room like that too.

rather than send the s-k thread further off-topic: in what ways, by the late 70s, was mason 'contributing' more than wright?

mookieproof, Thursday, 21 November 2019 15:36 (three months ago) link

The nature of their contributions was always different. I think with Mason, he could be relied on to come up with the appropriate parts, and maybe make an arrangement suggestion here or there, or bring in sound effects. Whereas with Wright, he'd co-written significant, and defining, parts of DSOTM and WYWH, but was no longer coming up with anything at all. They apparently expected more from him than comping along with the chord changes.

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Thursday, 21 November 2019 16:01 (three months ago) link

Didn't he have some drug issues around that time?

a bevy of supermodels, musicians and Lena Dunham (C. Grisso/McCain), Thursday, 21 November 2019 16:39 (three months ago) link

There's a good story in the Mark Blake bio about producer credits on The Wall. Previous albums had always said "produced by Pink Floyd", although neither Mason nor Wright had ever done any actual production work. This time Waters wanted the producer credits to say Ezrin/Waters/Gilmour. Mason agreed to this but Wright wanted a producer credit and so sat around in the studio from morning to night saying things like "I don't like that" in the belief that this showed he was co-producing the record. Needless to say, he didn't get the credit.

lol this rules

tylerw, Thursday, 21 November 2019 17:00 (three months ago) link

Credits should've read "Produced by Ezrin/Waters/Gilmour. Not liked by Wright."

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Thursday, 21 November 2019 17:15 (three months ago) link

"Special thanks from the band to Rick Wright."

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 21 November 2019 17:42 (three months ago) link

Sounds like Wright wasted the hours in an offhand way

badg, Friday, 22 November 2019 20:31 (three months ago) link

Sounds like Pink Floyd had too many dicks to make room for a pianist.

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 22 November 2019 21:34 (three months ago) link

I mean, he probably wasn't wrong?

pplains, Saturday, 23 November 2019 01:25 (two months ago) link

rick should have offered some lyrics as his contribution; i'm sure that would have gone well

Mazzy Tsar (PBKR), Saturday, 23 November 2019 13:06 (two months ago) link

He did put out a solo album in 1978, maybe he'd used up all his chord changes on there.

― 'Skills' Wallace (Tom D.)

YES HE CERTAINLY DID. god that album is literally nothing but fucking chord progressions.

Agnes Motörhead (rushomancy), Saturday, 23 November 2019 16:02 (two months ago) link

He was good at them though.

'Skills' Wallace (Tom D.), Saturday, 23 November 2019 16:07 (two months ago) link

i mean don't get me wrong they're good chord progressions but i feel like there's possibly more to music than just chord progressions? and based on "wet dream" wright might possibly have felt differently.

Agnes Motörhead (rushomancy), Saturday, 23 November 2019 16:31 (two months ago) link

that's something i'd listen to, somebody writing an album of actual songs with actual melodies based on the "wet dream" chord progressions

Agnes Motörhead (rushomancy), Saturday, 23 November 2019 16:32 (two months ago) link

Yeah, this is pretty nice look at later Floyd. Favorite tidbit, Douglas Adams from looking at the lyrics found the album title "The Division Bell".

Got to say, if you are going to be a cash loaded rock star, buying a fancy house boat on the Thames and turning into a recording studio is a pretty ace way to use your cash. Way cooler than a castle, but I bet Gilmour probably has a one of those too.
