New issue of UK's Mojo features Pink Floyd/The Endless River Print E-mail

Mojo Magazine, December 2014 - Pink Floyd The Endless River specialHitting UK stores this coming Tuesday (October 28th) is the new issue of the UK's magazine, Mojo (cover date, December 2014, issue 253).

As you will have spotted, the magazine have gone down the expected route of giving major coverage to Pink Floyd in the run-up to the release of the new album, The Endless River. The album is due for release around the second weekend in November, depending on whereabouts you are in the world.

Other than the eye-catching cover, and the cover mounted CD (with a familiar looking bunch on the cover, beneath the title "brain damage") there's what promises to be an exclusive, 21 page special with David Gilmour and Nick Mason interviewed.

In the interview, Nick compares the period in the band when Roger Waters left, with the death of Russian leader Josef Stalin. "It must have been the same when Stalin died. It took quite a while [to recover], it was a three or four year period."

Mason also sheds light on the meeting at a sushi restaurant in 1984 when Waters revealed to the others his intention to leave the group. "Roger thought we were all going to call it day, and David and I thought Roger was going to call it a day and we were going to carry on," he reveals. "[But] the thing is, these slightly unbalanced people make great musicians. If we hadn't had the mad Syd and the mad Roger, we might have been doing Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep." Mojo should be in UK stores next week, and thereafter in selected stores worldwide as an import. However, wherever you are worldwide, you can order it through this direct link for despatch direct to your home!

 
Pink Floyd's The Endless River breaking pre-sale records Print E-mail

Pink Floyd - The Endless RiverNext month sees the hotly-anticipated release of Pink Floyd's album, The Endless River. Arriving in stores from November 7th (various parts of Europe) through to November 10th (most of the world), the album is getting rave early reviews from the few lucky enough to have heard it so far.

The album has ignited interest across the entire range of Floyd fans, from those who are desperate to hear this, to those who are sceptical over the merits of the material. Indeed, major online retailer Amazon have confirmed just how much interest there is: The Endless River has broken their pre-order records for 2014, which is no mean feat at a store the size of theirs.

Director of Amazon EU Digital Music, Steve Bernstein, said: "That Pink Floyd's The Endless River could become the most pre-ordered album of all time on Amazon.co.uk, following other artists like One Direction and Robbie Williams who have held that top spot, is a testament to the strength and diversity of the UK music scene. Customers love the convenience of pre-ordering The Endless River on CD or vinyl knowing they will receive a digital version of the album for free in their Amazon Music Library on the day the album is released through Amazon AutoRip."

Sounds like they will have their hands full getting all the pre-orders ready for despatch. We would suggest therefore if you are intending to pre-order the album, to get yours done as soon as possible. With Amazon pre-orders, you will automatically be charged the lowest price they've advertised it at, between the time you order it and the eventual release, so no time like the present! You can order it through the following direct links, all resulting in a small but vital contribution toward our site running costs, which is hugely appreciated:

CD & BLU-RAY BOXSET:  Amazon.com  Amazon UK  Canada  Germany  France  Italy  Spain 
CD & DVD BOXSET:  Amazon.com  Amazon UK  Canada  Germany  France  Italy  Spain 
2-LP VINYL EDITION:  Amazon.com  Amazon UK  Canada  Germany  France  Italy  Spain 
CD ONLY EDITION:  Amazon.com  Amazon UK  Canada  Germany  France  Italy  Spain 

For those who prefer their music delivered purely digitally (as above, you get an MP3 version included when you buy a physical version through Amazon) you can now order the deluxe edition of Pink Floyd's The Endless River through iTunes.

 
Pink Floyd win 2014 Q Award for Classic Album Print E-mail

Wednesday, 22 October 2014

The 2014 Xperia Access Q Awards ceremony took place this afternoon at the Grosvenor House Hotel in central London. The awards, voted for by the public, and artists, consisted of a number of categories covering the normal topics, with the nominees all in line to win the new look trophy designed by Buster + Punch, but still featuring the classic Q logo boldly.

This year, Kate Bush was one of the more notable inclusions, being nominated for a pair of awards on the strength of her stage return after 35 years – Best Live Act and Best Act In The World Today - but won neither.

However, there was no doubting the winner of the Q Classic Album category: Pink Floyd's 1973 album The Dark Side Of The Moon. Nick Mason was on hand to accept the award from The Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan (who also presented the Floyd with their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction, back in 1996):
