Pink Floyd The Division Bell - metal headMarking its 20th anniversary, Pink Floyd's The Division Bell deluxe box set is out now, and the new surround mix on blu-ray is superb!

Pink Floyd The Endless River double vinyl release in preparation
Written by Matt   
Friday, 29 August 2014

Pink Floyd's The Endless River arriving at Acoustic SoundsIn a new Facebook status update, Acoustic Sounds have revealed that they are handling the vinyl release of Pink Floyd's new album The Endless River.

For those who are yet to join Facebook, here's what they said: "Ladies and gentlemen, presenting lacquers cut for 'The Endless River' the first new Pink Floyd album in 20 years. Four sides arrived this morning at Quality Record Pressings, straight from Doug Sax and crew at The Mastering Lab northwest of Los Angeles.

"The follow-up to 1994's 'The Division Bell,' 'The Endless River' marks the 15th studio album by the famed British band. Scheduled to release in October, 'The Endless River' finds David Gilmour and Nick Mason completing work on sessions with the late keyboardist and founding member Rick Wright. This is the third album by the Gilmour-helmed Pink Floyd after Roger Waters' departure from the band in 1985. The album is based on unreleased material the band produced with Wright during sessions for 'The Division Bell' in 1994. Ultimate Classic Rock has done a nifty '10 Facts You Need to Know' roundup concerning some pertinent nuggets about the new album - for instance, what started as a collection of all-instrumentals now has lyrics, and some Gilmour lead vocals. Read more: http://ultimateclassicrock.com/pink-floyd-endless-river-facts/

"We're ecstatic that QRP was chosen to press 'The Endless River' on vinyl and proud that our recent pressing of 'The Division Bell' was so highly received. When we say we press the world's finest-sounding LPs, we mean it."

 
Jon Carin working with Kate Bush on concerts
Written by Matt   
Thursday, 28 August 2014

Kate BushAs many of you will be aware - and a number of you will be excitedly waiting for the show you have scarce tickets for - Kate Bush started her set of 22 performances on Tuesday night. The hugely anticipated shows, called “Before The Dawn”, are Kate’s first full performances in 35 years, and are taking place at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.

As expected, rumours quickly spread that David GIlmour - who suggested Kate to EMI, leading to her being signed and given a recording contract - would perform with her during the shows. We've had many emails asking about this. Unfortunately, rumours such as this are easy to start, and don’t rely on any grounding in truth!

For those who are, however, interested in a Floydian connection to the shows, none other than Jon Carin, multi-instrumentalist and a key member of Pink Floyd for their final tours, and more recently, a cornerstone of the Roger Waters and David Gilmour solo bands, is performing with Kate. He has been working with her on the project for 10 months.

It sounds like the work has been worthwhile - reviews of the initial shows have been extremely enthusiastic, and we’ve purposefully avoided any spoilers in this article!

Andy JacksonA week ago, we revealed the upcoming release of Signal To Noise, the new studio album by twice Grammy nominated Pink Floyd engineer Andy Jackson [right]. The album, which is being released as both a single CD edition and a two-disc digipack deluxe limited edition with a 5.1 surround mix, appears on November 3rd, 2014.

Andy's relationship with Pink Floyd began on the film soundtrack of The Wall, a relationship that continues to this day, resulting in two Grammy nominations for his work and Mix magazine's award for best live sound engineer for the Division Bell tour. He has also worked on solo albums from Roger Waters and David Gilmour, and is also engineer and a co-producer of the yet-to-be-released Pink Floyd album, The Endless River.

The album is being released by Esoteric, and they are offering someone an unique opportunity. They are looking for someone who enjoys making short films to do a video for them to go along with the song "The Boy in the Forest". Anyone interested in participating should send them two examples of other work you have done; Esoteric and Andy himself will then select three people to go ahead and make a short video, using the music which will be sent to them. The finished films will then be up for a fan vote to determine which one is liked best. The winner's film will then be used for promotion. Winner also will get £75 and a signed copy of the album, the two runners up will get £30 and a signed copy.

Those interested in this opportunity should send their examples via the WeTransfer service to This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it by August 31st, along with a name and contact email. Good luck and let us know if you're taking part in this!

 
Pink Floyd Exhibition - Their Mortal Remains postponed
Written by Matt   
Monday, 11 August 2014

Some very important news has just arrived concerning the Pink Floyd Exhibition - Their Mortal Remains. Here is the text of the press release:

"Evolve Devolve, the Italian promoters of The Pink Floyd Exhibition, have announced today that the Exhibition, due to start on 19 September 2014 in Milan, has had to be postponed due to production delays. Building the complex Exhibition to the required specification has made it impossible to make the opening date.

"Tickets sales for the Exhibition are currently suspended. Existing ticket purchases will remain valid once the new exhibition dates are announced or can be refunded at point of purchase."

As soon as we have the confirmed, revised dates, or any other information, we will let you know. We know that many of you will be disappointed with the news, especially so close to the opening, and with many of us having already made travel and accommodation bookings, but we're sure it hasn't been a decision taken lightly.

 
Hipgnosis Portraits: new book from Aubrey "Po" Powell
Written by Matt   
Sunday, 10 August 2014

Hipgnosis Portraits - Aubrey Po PowellReleased on October 20th, 2014 in the UK and Europe (and November 11th in North America) is Hipgnosis Portraits, a new book from Aubrey "Po" Powell looking at the history of the legendary album artwork design team.

In just fifteen years, Hipgnosis (Storm Thorgerson, Po, and Peter Christopherson) established themselves as the most important design collective in music history. Their innovative cover art defines the albums of the biggest names of the late 1960s, 70s and early 80s: AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Peter Gabriel, The Police, Genesis, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, T. Rex, Wings, Yes and XTC, to name just a few. Their iconic designs (which include The Dark Side of the Moon, Led Zeppelin's Houses of the Holy and The Who's Who's Next) grace a staggering number of major releases. Their boundary-breaking conceptual approach earned them five Grammy nominations for package design, and their influence today can be seen in all creative fields from advertising to fashion.

This new book is divided into two main sections. Part I, Imagination, tells the story behind the cover artwork from germination through to the final sleeve design, supported by a wide array of previously unseen archival materials and text from Aubrey Powell. Part II, Realization, showcases the band portraits themselves, whether album covers or otherwise, in beautiful, large-scale reproductions.

The book promises to be a real treat and showcases many rare pictures, including different shots from Syd Barrett photo sessions, and the creation of the picture-within-picture image for the cover of Pink Floyd's Ummagumma album.

If you want to place your order now, for despatch to you on release, you can do so through these direct links: Amazon UK, Amazon.com, Amazon Canada, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Espana and Amazon Italy.
