WELCOME TO BRAIN DAMAGE, YOUR PINK FLOYD, DAVID GILMOUR AND ROGER WATERS NEWS RESOURCE!

First, huge news! Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets have announced four shows in London in May! Full details here...

The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains is open in Rome, Italy, and running until May 20th, 2018. please let us know if you are going! Once it is finished in Rome, it will continue its travels to Germany... where would YOU like to see it staged?

The Roger Waters European tour in 2018 is now taking place; it's a truly spectacular show - don't miss it! Talking of spectacles, out now for those who missed the concerts (or indeed, cannot wait to relive them!) are the recordings of David Gilmour Live at Pompeii on CD, LP, DVD, Blu-ray which are out now. Some other goodies form part of the package (especially the boxset) so worth checking out the details!

Talking of releases... the 4LP PULSE boxset is released on heavyweight 180 gram vinyl in May, and we suspect will be very popular indeed, based on the price that second-hand originals sell for. The much-loved compilation Relics is also coming on 180 gram vinyl on the same date.

Reminder: Pink Floyd's Piper 180 gram special vinyl for Record Store Day 2018
Written by Matt

Pink Floyd: The Piper At The Gates of Dawn - 180 gram vinyl Record Store Day 2018 limited releaseA hopefully timely reminder for you - to celebrate Record Store Day 2018 (TOMORROW - Saturday 21st April), Pink Floyd are releasing The Piper At The Gates of Dawn on vinyl, with a new mono 2018 remaster by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman. Remastered from the original 1967 mono mix, the release is the latest from Pink Floyd Records, which has recently marked global sales of over 1 million vinyl LPs since its launch in June 2016.

The limited-edition Record Store Day release is delivered on premium 12" 180-gram black vinyl, and comes paired with an exclusive poster (540 x 388mm on art paper), as well as a foil blocked outer wallet. This was to differentiate the mono version for buyers; Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis, with Peter Curzon, created this additional packaging in the form of a card envelope which features a psychedelic design, including a gold embossed version of the graphic by Syd Barrett which also features on the reverse of the original mono LP.


The package also includes gold and black labels, gold sticker, and a poster featuring the original photograph (taken by the late Colin Prime in Ruskin Park, South London) that inspired Syd’s graphic.


Written and performed by Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Richard Wright and Nick Mason, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn was recorded with producer Norman Smith at Abbey Road Studios, and features songs that remained on the band's live setlist for many years, such as Astronomy Domine and Interstellar Overdrive. The songs on the album remain firm favourites with fans to this day.

The release goes on sale via Record Store Day participating stores (in person, not via mail order) tomorrow, and will only remain available while stocks last - we understand it is limited to 6000 copies worldwide. So, if you are interested in this release, you will need to set your alarm early that day to join the queue at your local store. For more details, including participating stores, visit either www.recordstoreday.com or www.recordstoreday.co.uk. Inevitably, and useful for those who can't make it to a store, the album will also appear tomorrow morning on the various eBay stores (in fact, on checking today there are a number of these on there already, at a mix of sensible and crazy prices).

Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets announce four concerts in London

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

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!
