Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets

When Nick Mason made comments in Italy about heading out to small venues, to play early Pink Floyd songs, few took the remarks seriously. As unlikely as it seemed, Nick was entirely truthful and this morning, a set of four shows in London have been announced for his new band.

Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets brings together some familiar names, all great musicians: joining Nick are Gary Kemp and Lee Harris on guitar, Guy Pratt on bass, and Dom Beken on keyboards. Kemp is best known for his work with Spandau Ballet, Harris as having played guitar with The Blockheads (Ian Dury's band), Pratt needs no introduction, and Beken is principally known for his work with The Orb, and Transit Kings (with Pratt). The band will be playing early Pink Floyd songs at four intimate live shows in May, in two small venues in London.

Tickets for the four intimate concerts, which are really not to be missed, go on sale 10am today, Tuesday 17th April, via www.thesaucerfulofsecrets.com. The dates are as follows:

  • Sunday, May 20th - Dingwalls, Camden
  • Monday, May 21 - Half Moon, Putney
  • Wednesday, May 23 - Half Moon, Putney
  • Thursday, May 24 - Half Moon, Putney

This is a unique opportunity to experience Pink Floyd's celebrated and significant early body of work played live including songs from albums 'The Piper At The Gates of Dawn' and 'A Saucerful Of Secrets'.

Due to the size of the venues, tickets are very limited and we expect them to sell very quickly. All ticket holders will require photo ID with their ticket for entry to the shows.

 
Pink Floyd's 1971 compilation Relics coming on 180 gram vinyl Print E-mail

Pink Floyd - Relics 180 gram heavyweight vinyl LP

On 18th May (the same date as Pink Floyd's 4LP PULSE live album is re-released), the Floyd's much loved "Relics: A Bizarre Collection of Antiques & Curios" arrives on heavyweight 180-gram vinyl, as part of the Pink Floyd Records reissue programme.

The album is the band's 1971 compilation pulling together singles, B-sides, and early album tracks. The album features the intriguing and complex artwork hand-drawn by Nick Mason, and like the original release, all tracks are the original stereo versions, which sit alongside the mono tracks Arnold Layne and See Emily Play. As with other Pink Floyd Records output, this 2018 release was remastered from the original tapes by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman.

As a reminder, the track listing of Relics is as follows:

  • Side One: Arnold Layne, Interstellar Overdrive, See Emily Play, Remember A Day, Paint Box
  • Side Two: Julia Dream, Careful With That Axe, Eugene, Cirrus Minor, The Nile Song, Biding My Time, Bike

The album was a number of fans' initial introduction to the band, being released on a budget label (MFP - Music For Pleasure) which sold the album in stores such as Woolworths, and we suspect this re-issue, on decent vinyl, will prove popular! You can order this via the following direct links, which will also qualify for Amazon's pre-order price guarantee - they will automatically charge the lowest asking price between your order, and release: Amazon UK, Amazon.com, Amazon Canada, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Spain and Amazon Italy. Using our Amazon links also helps us hugely with ongoing site running costs and we really appreciate it!

 
Pink Floyd's PULSE live album gets 4LP heavyweight vinyl release Print E-mail

Pink Floyd - PULSE 4LP 180gram heavyweight vinyl box set

One of the more sought after Pink Floyd vinyl releases is the 1995 PULSE 4LP box set, which (if you can find a copy, even in fair condition) commands extremely high prices. If you've always wanted this album on vinyl, we have some great news for you!

On May 18th, 2018, Pink Floyd Records are releasing it on heavyweight 180-gram vinyl. The 4LP set includes four different inner sleeves, each inside individual outer sleeves, plus a 52-page hardback photo book, all encased in a thick card slipcase. Aubrey "Po" Powell and Peter Curzon, who work on the original artwork with the late Storm Thorgerson, have recreated the superb original packaging for this reissue. As with other Pink Floyd Records output, this 2018 release was remastered from the original tapes by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman.

One curiosity about the vinyl (like the original cassette) is that it includes One Of These Days as an additional track, which wasn't included on the CD version (presumably due to space issues). With the cassette out of print, this new edition of PULSE on vinyl will be the only place to legitimately get hold of this recording of One Of These Days.

The track listing for the album, which includes the entirety of The Dark Side Of The Moon (performed at a number of dates on the 1994 tour) is as follows:

  • LP1 - Side One: Shine On You Crazy Diamond (1-5,7), Astronomy Domine, What Do You Want From Me; Side Two: Learning To Fly, Keep Talking, Coming Back To Life
  • LP2 - Side One: Hey You, A Great Day For Freedom, Sorrow; Side Two: High Hopes, Another Brick In The Wall (Part Two), One Of These Days
  • LP3 - Side One: Speak To Me, Breathe (In The Air), On The Run, Time; Side Two: The Great Gig In The Sky, Money
  • LP4 - Side One: Us And Them, Any Colour You Like, Brain Damage, Eclipse; Side Two: Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb, Run Like Hell

ORDERING INFORMATION:
We're sure that this will be one of the most popular Pink Floyd Records releases, so we urge you to place your orders early. To secure your copy now, for despatch upon release, please use these direct links, which will also qualify for Amazon's pre-order price guarantee - they will automatically charge the lowest asking price between your order, and release: Amazon UK, Amazon.com, Amazon Canada, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Spain and Amazon Italy.

Pink Floyd in Italy - celebrating 50 years of Piper Club, plus appeal for info Print E-mail

Piper Club - 50th anniversary of Pink Floyd Piper Club, Rome

Two bits of news, both relating to Pink Floyd in Italy.

First, there's an appeal to all of you, wherever you may live, relating to performances by the band in that country. Were you lucky enough to have seen Pink Floyd live in Italy at any time between 1968 and 1994? The Floydseum is after your written memories, live photos or photos of local newspaper articles and memorabilia. If you have any, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it to let them know. They note that "the most beautiful photos and the most interesting writings will become part of a future book and possible exhibitions and events related to the publication of the same!"

Before then, though, the 50th anniversary of Pink Floyd's appearance at the Piper Club in Rome takes place on April 19th, 2018. Planned is a special concert, and an exhibition: "Four great unknowns, Roger Waters, Rick Wright and Nick Mason, with David Gilmour’s weird elegance to fill a little the empty space left by Syd Barrett - whose crazy sheen was well sadly blown up, seize a young standing audience, almost unaware of the event and yet electrically engaged. Orbiting between the resonances and the sonic chiaroscuros drawn by five outstanding musicians, 50 years later on the same stage and supported by 'The Lunatics' crew, the rarefied atmospheres and visions that defined the historic gig at the Piper Club renew themselves in a show made up of powerful and vibrant sounds. Come over lighthearted. Have a nice trip. See you at the gates of dawn, for a psychedelic breakfast!"

The performance is by an Italian band, Eugene and The Pink Floyd Sound, and the exhibition is curated by 'The Lunatics', the band of Italian Floyd collectors. Tickets are now available from PiperClub.it, EventiPiper.it and CiaoTickets.com.
