Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets wows the Camden crowd Print E-mail

Nick Mason - Dingwalls, Camden, London, 20th May 2018

Last night saw the first of the four nights in London for Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets.

The crowd were treated to a set as diverse as it was unexpected; songs that had NEVER been played live were given the opportunity, and sounded great. Other songs were more expected; half the set at least could have been guessed at as likely contenders, but nonetheless they all sounded fresh, lively and played with a clear passion and verve.

Our initial review is now live on the Dingwalls concert page which also shows - hidden so you can avoid if if you wish - the setlist from last night.

We will be adding some pictures from last night, shortly, but welcome the thoughts of others who were there. Drop us a line at our normal address - This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it - as we'd love to know what you thought!

Also, if you are going tonight, or Wednesday or Thursday, we'd love to hear from you too! We're sure you will have a great time, a real night to remember...

Mojo - July 2018; both Pink Floyd covers

The new issue of the UK's Mojo Magazine (cover date July 2018, issue number 296) includes a major feature on Pink Floyd, as well as the new endeavour (which kicks off this weekend in London), Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets.

The magazine headlines the feature looking at their reckoning of 'The 50 Greatest Pink Floyd Songs' (always a contentious concept), which they call "a celebration of their works from Walk With Me Sydney to The Endless River and all points between".

More interestingly, they have "an exclusive interview with Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets, the Floyd drummer’s unexpected live reincarnation of the Syd Barrett-era band. Enhance your psychedelic mood with Mojo's covermount CD: Bright Ambassadors Of Morning – a collection of mind-altering music from the past and present, featuring The Flaming Lips, James Holden, Phil Manzanera, Todd Rundgren, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and more."

Elsewhere in the magazine, amongst a wide range of other things, there's an interview with Patti Smith on the eve of her UK tour, a rare full-career rundown with Can man Damo Suzuki, and a look at Paul Simon's life-changing spells in the UK, 1963-65.

The magazine will be in UK stores from Tuesday, and will be available in selected locations worldwide as an import, in due course. When buying it, you'll have to make a decision - which cover do you want? As you can see from the image to the right, there are two to choose from (subject to availability, of course): Cover 1, celebrating the Syd Barrett line-up of the band; and Cover 2, featuring David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Rick Wright and Nick Mason. You can order (worldwide) online through these links:

Reminder: Pink Floyd's 4LP PULSE box set and Relics now released on 180g vinyl Print E-mail

Pink Floyd - PULSE 4LP 180gram heavyweight vinyl box setToday, May 18th, 2018, Pink Floyd Records have released the PULSE 4LP box set (originally released in 1995, and now incredibly rare/pricey!) 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.

Today also sees the release of the Floyd's much loved Relics: A Bizarre Collection of Antiques & Curios on 180g heavyweight vinyl. 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.

We're sure that both of these will be very popular Pink Floyd Records releases, so we urge you to place your orders early. To secure your copy now, please use these direct links for PULSE: Amazon UK,, Amazon Canada, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Spain and Amazon Italy.

Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets - ticket ballot

With the first of the four London shows for Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets just two days away, it has just been announced that there are a very limited number of production tickets which have been released for the first of the four shows.

These additional tickets for Sunday's performance at Dingwalls, in Camden, go on sale now, and are expected to sell extremely quickly. As before, there are ticketing restrictions of just two tickets per person, and the name of the purchaser will be printed on the tickets, and photo ID will be checked against the tickets, on the door. You can try your hand at getting tickets for what promises to be a great show, via Ticketweb.

If you don't succeed with the above, there's another opportunity for you. A pair of tickets has been made available to help raise much needed funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust charity. The tickets are for the show at the Half Moon in Putney on May 23rd, and you can find out more details, and buy your entry/entries into the ballot, through

Good luck if you are trying either route above!
