Pink Floyd Records: Animals, WYWH and DSOTM next on 180 gram vinyl Print E-mail

Pink Floyd Records - The Dark Side of the Moon 180g heavyweight vinyl 2016
Pink Floyd Records - Wish You Were Here 180g heavyweight vinyl 2016
Pink Floyd Records - Animals 180g heavyweight vinyl 2016

For all of you who are building their Pink Floyd vinyl collections with the very special, limited 180g remastered re-pressings of the band's studio albums, some good news for you!

On 18th November 2016, Pink Floyd Records will continue the reintroduction of the Pink Floyd catalogue on vinyl with 'Animals' remastered from the original analogue master tapes and reissued on vinyl for the first time in over 20 years. Before then, 'Wish You Were Here' and 'The Dark Side of the Moon' are also back in stock on vinyl from this Friday, 14th October, and 4th November respectively.

That should just leave The Final Cut and A Momentary Lapse of Reason to be released again on vinyl, unless a decision is made to release some of the other titles too - things such as Delicate Sound of Thunder, Relics, and suchlike.

As before, these new heavyweight vinyl editions should prove extremely popular and will undoubtably sell quickly, so we recommend that those of you who are interested, place your orders as soon as you can. The dedicated ordering links are below - using these will give a small but vital contribution to the running costs of Brain Damage, without costing you a penny/cent extra, and we really appreciate it!

WISH YOU WERE HERE:  Amazon.com  Amazon UK  Canada  Germany  France  Italy  Spain

Syd Barrett and the early days of Pink Floyd - interview with Jenny Spires Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Sunday, 09 October 2016

This week, the latest edition of The Eclectic Light Show was uploaded to Mixcloud to enable people around the world to have a listen. The show is a popular Sunday afternoon magazine show on the Cambridge 105 radio station, celebrating the best in music, theatre, books and chat, with celebrity interviews, reviews and previews.

This edition starts with a lengthly, and fascinating, insight into Syd Barrett and the early days of Pink Floyd, from one of Syd's girlfriends, Jenny Spires. Jenny's unique perspective on those days makes for a compelling listen, and her memories of the people, places, events and dates are very impressive.

Pink Floyd Beginnings 1967-1972 on BBC Four this month Print E-mail

BBC Four TV

Just announced, via the Floyd's official Facebook page: on October 21st, at 9pm UK, a new, hour-long Floyd compilation airs on BBC Four TV. 'Pink Floyd Beginnings 1967-1972' brings together a selection of the band's early, historic TV appearances, and is a taster for what the Pink Floyd: The Early Years 1965-1972 box set will include.

This almost sounds like a sequel to the BBC Four programme, Pink Floyd: A Miscellany, originally aired in 2011, albeit this show is focused on the first part of their professional career, whereas Miscellany took a broader look at their history.

BBC Four is available in the UK via Freeview, digital cable and satellite, and many parts of Europe can also receive the channel via satellite and other means. Alternatively, most of the BBC's programming can also be enjoyed online at BBC.co.uk, live and on demand through the BBC's iPlayer facility.

 
Roger Waters - new teaser video, concert this weekend, new merchandise Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Saturday, 08 October 2016

Below is a new teaser video from Roger Waters, which since it appeared late yesterday has resulted in much speculation from fans who have already seen it. With the simple caption or title of "Us + Them", followed by "Coming soon", backed by some previously unheard music and a couple of hands reaching for each other, it is an intriguing short clip. Could the tour or album announcement be on its way? More as we get it.

Of course, Sunday night sees Roger close the first of two consecutive Desert Trip weekends, with support from none other than The Who! Other artists playing earlier in the weekend include Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones (both of whom played last night), as well as Paul McCartney and Neil Young. Not a bad line-up!

Some new merchandise, including items for the Desert Trip concerts, has now appeared in Roger's online store. To see the new items, you need to go to the US or Canadian versions of the store through this link as the European store has yet to add them.

Now for the intriguing new video...

 
Pink Floyd reunites - not for music, but for Gaza Freedom Flotilla Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Saturday, 08 October 2016

In a brief, 47 word joint statement issued on Thursday, David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Roger Waters came back together - not musically, we are quick to add - to support some 13 international female pro-Palestinian activists, detained by Israeli military.

The statement read, in full:

    "Pink Floyd reunites to stand with the Women of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla"
    David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Roger Waters stand united in support of the Women of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, and deplore their illegal arrest and detention in international waters by the Israeli Defence Force.
We've had a number of emails about this, in particular from those unsure or confused by the initial three words. The band members are NOT intending a concert, or new recording, together, although those for whom English isn't their first language may well have been confused by the start of the statement.
